Just watching the surfing flick ‘September Sessions’ and this tune popped up…had to run to the computer and post this. ‘Willow Tree’ by G. Love & Special Sauce. “Water over the pebble, I’ll stand by your side…forever.” I just planted a willow tree down by the river last summer and its really growing well so here’s to the big strong floppy green tree growing down back and swaying happily in the wind on this rainy day. Mahalo!
The rain is coming down…as I sit at the window waiting for it to pass so I can get back out there again…ah screw it, the rain doesn’t hurt…I’m going back outside anyway.
Cool tune for the weather coming down from the skies and swirling around in my mind. It’s Aynsley Lister’s “Rain”. If you like it, check out his website for a free download: http://www.aynsleylister.co.uk/.
Martha Wainwright comes from a family of talented artists (mom was a singer, dad was a musician and actor, brother Rufus is a musician). She expertly delivers a beautiful tune over hard and honest sounding lyrics. You may be either turned on or turned off by the song title but either way, give it a listen.
When I post Sunday jazz its usually in the morning, when I’m in a certain state of mind. So this week I’m trying an evening lense for the pick and I couldn’t get past this song without posting it. John Coltrane is the summitt of my jazz Rushmore. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do (even half as much is still pretty damn good). I recommend wearing a seat belt because if this is the first time you are hearing it, its going to knock you outta your seat.
True yet haunting lyrics from a great musician who passed accidentally at too young an age:
“How Many Times, Have u Heard Someone Say, If I Had Money, I Would Do Things My Way. But Little They Know, That It’s So Hard To Find One Rich Man In Ten, With A Satisfied Mind.
Money Can’t Buy Back, All Your Youth When Your Old A Friend When Your Lonley, Or Peace To Your Soul The Wealtiest Person, Is A Pauper At Times Compared To The Man, With a Satisfied Mind.
When My Life Is Over, And My Time Has Run Out, My Friends and My Lovers, I Will Leave, Theres No Doubt But One Things For Certain, When It Comes My Time I’ll Leave This Old World With A Satisfied Mind”
Amen brother, I hope you did. I hope I can say the same when it comes my time. RIP Jeff Buckley.
I just finished eating the most delicious honey cinnamon ice cream…the kind of stuff that’s so damn good you’d be willing to exercise extra hard to justify what has just happened…then this song came up. Excellent!
