I can't stop listening to the Grand Unification Theory (Stefon Harris), despite my disdain for the liner notes <_<

This is one of the first recent jazz records to captivate me to this degree. I really enjoy it.

OKay okay you dragged it out of me. March has been the month of Acumen Nation, I've been listening to their last 3 CDs NONSTOP. Albums such as The Fifth Column, More Human Heart,and Universe. damn that band rules. The industrial grind continues with some Ministry - The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste and a little on the electronic side with Funker Vogt - We Came To Kill. I shake up this with the ever-awesome new band from Mike Patton Tomahawk. I hope to heavens that they put out a new CD this year.

Right now:

Archie Shepp's Attica Blues - track 5: Steam Part 2

This album really makes me feel like I'm on drugs when I listen to it. The strings on this track have a narcotic quality to them.

I respect the sentiments they're trying to convey here, but it's a weird album. Not really jazz.

:rsmile: :rhappy: :rsmile:
