Marianne Faithfull - Broken English


There are many things related to the name of Mrs. Marianne Faithfull, her love affairs with celebrities, her sinking into world of drugs, voice change, cabaret music, and, also, her return to the scene, early in 21st century,  marked with the cooperation with a many interesting musicians ...
And somewhere in the middle of the road, as a turning point and the basis for everything that is happening now, there was this great album, the witness of a time, and also, the music for dance :)

Sofa Surfers - Encounters


This record, with its dark atmosphere and urban rhythms, permeated with the occasional hit songs, at the time of issue, and even today, satisfied my musical criteria. And why is that? Well, since my computer dying just now, you'll have to judge for yourself  :)

Bohren & der Club of Gore - Black Earth


Fast food, fast fashion, fast movies, fast flow of information, rapidly maturing, fast courses, everything is fast and too fast ... And yet, if you want to make a break, a step further from the imposed rules, well, here is one of the possible solutions :)
Powerful, seductive and extremely slow solution :)

Various Artists - Sound of Siam, Vol. 2: Molam & Luk Thung 1970-1982


Military machine, despite all the negative, can sometimes have a positive effect. For example, the arrival of the US Army in Thailand, in the sixties, had a strong influence on local bands, and has mixed American genres like rock, soul, jazz with traditional Thai luk thung style. And the result is timeless music that, today, 50 years later, makes me very happy :)

Don Cherry - Eternal Rhythm

 

Although not very oriented towards jazz, some of my favorite records belong, tentatively said, to this direction. How, you ask? The answer lies in the authors themselves, the individual musicians who understand music as something without a limitations. And Don Cherry, he is certainly one of them :)
