peggs posting the Yo-Yo Ma, Chris Thile "Tiny Concert" reminded me of this track, my favorite track from Tin Hat Trio's tremendous "The Rodeo Eroded" album. I particularly love playing it in the car on a country highway, you feel like driving and listening forever.
Yeah, I can see that. I drive to the casino in Oklahoma about every other weekend - about an hour and a half drive - and its a lot of nothing in some spots along the way. My usual go-to is "Tomorrow Never Knows" by the Beatles, but, lately, it's this one by Jenny Lewis, "Completely Not Me".
West of Hollywood, by Steely Dan. It's actually the part when the vocals are done, when the band are going through this amazing set of key changes.. like gear shifts, with a stunning sax solo on top. The key point is at 4:29. This is driving music.www.youtube.com/watch?v=eiHQxPB8XcQ
It's a classic for a reason; Take Five (a wonderful live version if you click the link). A song, an entire album, to get lost in. Time stands still and flows effortlessly when you allow this perfect alignment of sound to wash over you.
Driving in rush hour traffic today (haven't done that in ages!) I got gloriously lost in The Grand Canyon Suite by Ferde Grofe. The clippity clop of the donkeys matched the clippity cop of the slow moving vehicles.
