    Gentle Giant - Octopus

    My first listen, believe it or not. I am not a musician or musical theory person, so I'm sure much of it is lost on me, but I've at least listened to enough Zappa/Crimson/Can/etc. to be able to enjoy the dissonance and resolution as well as the shifting/interlocking time signatures. The vocals are especially good with all the counterpoints.

    One reason I never got around to the album was the American cover, which made me think it would be too robotic and harsh. The UK cover is far more fitting. The music always has an organic flow no matter what weirdness is going on.

    Yesterday did my annual listen to Dylan's Saved, Slow Train Coming and Shot of Love. Think I mentioned earlier weekend listen to Eddie Lockjaw Davis and Johnny Griffin's Live at Minton's, also played the new Spoon album (they are going in a new direction; it's creative and good although I liked their last one better, at least on first impression), and the Beatles Hey Jude, which has been superseded by the Past Masters sets, but is fun to spin on vinyl. We played it on 4/15 since my wife had noted that two different songs on it had been recorded on that date.

    I bought this one yesterday. These sonic landscapes are truly enjoyable, so I might buy another of Eno's ambient albums today :).

    Morrison's voice and lyrics are missed, but the music makes it an interesting album anyway.

    Like I promised yesterday, I bought some more ambient albums by Eno. This time, in collaboration with Harold Budd. Atmospheric beauty.

    Vandermark/Drake/McBride (aka Spaceways Incorporated) Thirteen Cosmic Standards by Sun Ra and Funkadelic.

    Now that I've overcome my initial disappointment, counterpart to the rush I felt when I thought it was a recording of Sun Ra backed by Funkadelic, I am really enjoying this. My only minor quibble is I would have liked to hear the rock tunes a bit more jazzed up - structurally they are very faithful to the originals, well done in itself because they effectively reproduce the multi-textured sound of funkadelic with only three instruments (and maybe that's the point.)

    A good point of entry to some contemporary jazz if nothing else.
