Your Sunday Soothingness

Just for you, a bit of Sunday Soothingness. Another choice morsel drawn from your Beloved Blog Editrix's personal digs, I give you a track from one of his generation most underappreciated composers, who, along with a few other like minds, heavily influenced the sound of the early 70's.

From 'Stephen Stills' 1991 acoustic album 'Stills Alone', here is what was to become a college underground radio station classic - 'Treetop Flyer'.

Your Sunday Soothingness

Just for you, a bit of warm groovy Sunday Soothingness. Another choice morsel drawn from your Beloved Blog Editrix's personal digs, I give you a track from Brian Auger's Oblivion Express titled 'Compared To What' from his 1973 album 'Closer to It!'.  It's one of my favorite records from this genre and has special significance to me, but I will not confess now or ever that it's because it happened to be permeating the atmosphere in beautiful 2 channel stereo the first time I ever got high.  

Enjoy Your Sunday Evening.

Enjoy your Sunday. And to everyone this side of the equator, Stay Warm.

Sunday Soothingness

For your Sunday Soothingness, I present another choice morsel drawn from your Blog Editrix's personal digs. I must say I was pleasantly surprised the name "Otis Spann" came up in the comments of the MFST post below.  Not many people outside of Music School Jazz/Blues academia or hardcore Blues Aficionados would know the name.  Spann was an unsung but much respected session man who spent much of his career tickling the ivories for Muddy Waters, whose keyboard style initial hit me as a kinda laid back Oscar Peterson.

Here I give you the tune "Temperature is Rising" from 1969's 'The Biggest Thing Since Colossus', done with a little help from three of those Fleetwood Mac fellows.

Sunday Soothingness

For your Sunday Soothingness, another choice morsel drawn from your Blog Editrix's personal digs, 'Not At Home' from John Mayall's 1993 "Wake Up Call". I love this record and especially this tune because Mayall gave it an unusual down-beat Bossa Nova favor, featuring Mick Taylor on guitar. 😎 Enjoy your Sunday evening.

Sunday Soothingness

For your Sunday Soothingness, another choice morsel drawn from your Beloved Blog Editrix's personal digs.  Here is "It's You" by Bob James & David Sanborn from their 1986 collaboration "Double Vision" This is also one of those pieces of music that is done an injustice for even having to being heard in the MP4 format of YouTube.

Sunday Soothingness

We lost last week one of the Great Troubadours of the Late Twentieth Century. One of his most perfect and beautiful compositions was 'Seven Island Suite'. It happen to have been one of the favorites of Lydia Marie (1961-1995)

This is for Her. I Miss You Mom.

Sunday Soothingness

For your Sunday Soothingness, another choice morsel drawn from your Beloved Blog Editrix's personal digs, 'Lilies Of The Nile' from one of my favorite albums of late night music, The Crusaders 'Southern Comfort' two record set from 1974.  My only regret posting this is that you hear it in crappy YouTube compressed Mp4 format that gives little hint of the magnificent sound of this recording when heard on a respectable audio system.

For your Sunday Soothingness, a choice morsel drawn from your Beloved Blog Editrix's personal digs, a guitar duet by Peter Frampton and jazz great Larry Carlton, of a rendition of  the Miles Davis Classic "All Blues" from Frampton's 2019 Album of the same name. It pairs well with a nice adult beverage of your liking.

Sunday Soothingness

For Your Sunday Soothingness, a choice morsel drawn from your Blog Editrix's personal collection, done by someone I have a kinship of sorts.  Neither of us were born in the deep south, but once here, we knew way down inside it's where we're meant to be. So for your listening pleasure, and sensory stimulation, I give you Maria Muldaur and "Talk Real Slow" from the album "Fanning the Flames"

Sunday Soothingness

Every generation is defined in large part by it's music. Even further refined by individual decades as "Their Music".  I was not yet born when the music below was recorded, but it was gifted to me at roughly the same age as many of you were when it was first released. 

For me, it was in my personal age of discovery. The record these cuts are lifted from had a profound effect on me. I can only describe it as the music went places in me music had never been. 

And as I have grown, I was also gifted the realization sometimes one needs to look past who gave birth to it, and just let the music speak.

Some Sunday Soothingness from the late David Crosby

With 2022 finally in the rearview mirror, it's time to shutter it's noise.
