granite 13 is a mix i constructed some time ago late at night in a lively pensive mood. probably i don’t really remember. some of the artists have been on other granite mixes but that’s only to be expected. graphs show patterns and patterns evolve into branched out structures of growth replete with inner and outer significance. trellises draw stems and tendrils favour south-facing surfaces.
lotte lenya, best singer of all bond villains is my favourite interpreter of her husband’s music. sorry this track isn’t great quality it came tortuously originally from a radio broadcast – bbc radio 3 that would be.
nancy wilson i have talked about before and not sure what else i can say except that if you’re going to look at only one of the youtube links that i’ve embedded in this post then i would particularly recommend hers
bonnie prince billy i find a refreshing character i’ve chosen a video rather than a live perfomance for the link because i somehow think he works especially well with film.
balkan music has got a strong thing going with it’s mixture of asian and european traditions and this albanian unit is a good example of what i’m talking about. what am i talking about?
my clan done ran from japan to atlanta with stamina
slingers and gamblers and gram handlers
tical light the owl cigar let’s get steamed
infra-red guard your beam
i’m not an expert on the blues but for me john lee hooker was the guy who took it a bit beyond and spaced it out by reducing the number of chords which is always good for me though i admit sometimes i fancy putting a few in.
alfred schnittke is another composer/musician that i have talked about before and not sure what else to say. how about – my favourite composer? at the moment anyway.
baden powell – probably talked about him too (when i say talked i mean written). and the link is the second best one to watch.
