    #2 after Carole King's Tapestry. That's pretty good competition in denying first place.

    Here's one of my absolute favorites, if sex had a voice it would sound like Chante Moore...

    Junko Onishi Trio, Live at the Village Vanguard, Vol. 1. Blue Skies is one of the standouts although the whole album is great. Listen to how they hammer V7 chord from 1:09-2:46 and then break into this gorgeous, gentle yet intense, hard swing:

    Siouxsie - Mantaray.
    This goes way back to 2007 or so.
    She stepped out, going solo with this.
    It got a pretty good reception.
    After this album it seems to me, that she's left the music scene completely.
    Don't know if she has recorded or released anything following this.
    Great back catalogue with The Banshees

    Lots of incredible albums but this is my travelog through life


    “You just picked up a hitcher, a prisoner of the white lines of the freeway”

    “Like Icarus ascending on beautiful foolish arms”

    “I’ve got the apple of temptation and a diamond snake around my arm”

    “There’s comfort in melancholy, when you do or you do not resign”
