Gary Husband - Aspire (JazzIzIt)

Both today's Times and Guardian review the new CD by Gary Husband. A very gifted pianist, he is still probably better know - at least in the rock world as the drummer with Level 42. This album is an acoustic jazz leaning record, which features vocalist Christine Tobin on what the Times describe as "an overwrought adaptation" and the Guardian "a rather monochromatic take" on Todd Rundgren's Tiny Demons.

Spin the black circle

Another week and more great listening!

Orbital - In Sides: This has been the big listen of the week. Triggered off by hearing "the Box" on TV. Orbital have never been better in my opinion.

Kings of Convenience - Quiet is The New Loud: keeping it mellow with the modern day simon and garfunkle sound.

FannyPack - So Stylistic: I have no shame, I love this record. Feel good music by daphne and celeste mark II.

Johnny Cash - American IV: Hurt still just blows me away and The man comes around isn't far behind. He went out with his head held high. RIP JC.
