On the way to work this morning i listened to some of John Coltranes "Giant Steps" and the jazzy bits of Paul Wellers "22 Dreams" need a better wage than the pitance i get just now so i can invest in some more jazz records.

Giant Steps is a phenomenal album. One of the first jazz albums I bought years ago and I still listen to it regularly

Davy Jones' passing brought The Monkees back to mind; I had latched onto them as a teenager in the '80s. I'd never bought their albums, so I'm discovering a lot of little hidden gems, especially Mike Nesmith's stuff.

I'm enjoying getting to know Peter Tork's blues work, too, with his band Shoe Suede Blues. Pete always was my favorite. 8)

I'm currently listening to the amazing second album by Nelson Bragg (of the Brian Wilson Band). Here's my review of it:

Nelson Bragg's "We Get What We Want" - a five star masterpiece!!!...

Oh my God...this is phenomenal! I've just played Nelson's new album for the first time and I'm totally blown away by it. "You Get What You Want" captures everything that is best about power-pop, Beatles (think "And Your Bird Can Sing"), the Byrds "Notorious Byrds Bros", C,S,N,& Y, and every piece of great West Coast music that you've ever heard! In fact, I haven't heard a better album of its ilk since the 1960s. It's full of gorgeous melodies, harmonies, jangly guitar, piano, and trumpet (from Probyn Gregory - also of the Brian Wilson Band) plus all sorts of inventive musicianship. I've been carried along from start to finish by the sheer momentum of it. There's not one dud track, and it includes a version of Brian Wilson's "Baby Let Your Hair Grown Long" that (dare I say it) is even better than Brian's own version. Three of the greatest tracks come towards the end...namely "I'm In No Mood" (a potentional single?), "Welcome to Nowhereville" and "Time and Tyde Agree". I was literally crying tears of joy by the time I got to these. This is more than a worthy succesor to the excellent "Tangle Free World" album that Nelson produced for Anny Celsi, and it's light years ahead of his own first album (which contained two classics in "Forever Days" and "Death of Caroline"). Do yourself a favour...go straight to www.nelsonbragg.com and order this album NOW! You can also listen to samples of the tracks + the single.

Listening to an album by a Norwegian singer-songwriter (though he sings in English) named Magnus Moriarty, Perhaps Interior Heart Politeness (2008)...amazing stuff. Check out "No Tale For A Ferry," beautiful song. Link - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaeXLlcmekQ

Nice, although I would rather call it interestingly orchestrated pop than singer-songwriter-stuff.
