Astral Weeks, Morrison.

Nothing better. Cool

His very best, and one of the finest ever of such genre.

As an album, unquestionably. The songs taken individually, I love Moondance, but it doesn't work as an album in quite the same way. In terms of genre, Astral Weeks is almost in its own genre to me. Not jazz, but not rock, either. In my mind I think of it similarly to Blue, though that is not correct.

Beethoven Symphony No 5

We're playing the fourth movement in our community amateur orchestra right now. Listen for the piccolo solo roughly a minute or so from the end. Every piccolo player works so hard to play this, but no one ever hears it.

Gotta love the last 20 bars or so, where Beethoven wants the whole world to know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that we're in C major!

When I read this, I immediately thought of Dr. Evil and Scott and their exchange over the Alan Parsons Project laser. Hilarious!

That's because you are Scott, whippersnapper. Wink
I think I wore out my Tales of Mystery and Imagination LP back in the 70's.

She has just taken the top-spot for being the next future "Mrs.Maverick".

Mav, have you been living under a rock for the last decade? Razz

Krall stole the show at the Montreal Jazz Festival, and catch it if you can. Checkout Quiet Nights, and the wonderful Bossa Nova influence she adds.

When you are needing an IPR for your current S.O or wife, think Krall. Wink
