My Son dropped off their live CD last night and I'd completely forgotten about this song. This is the Hip I know

Back home from an overnight in coastal southern Maine with Annie and the MX-5, sipping wine and chilling with easy listening music on Pandora in our sun room. We used to call it "New Age" music. Now, I guess, it's called "Spa" music.

Makes for good background music that I don't feel the need to pay attention to.

Did everyone else already know that Billy Joel did all fourteen parts of "The Longest Time" after deciding that the Persuasions weren't doing it well enough?

When I was a kid in the 1980s, there was so much stuff that referenced the 1950s. Well, the nostalgia cycle is here for me, and I can't get this damn song out of my head. The Regrettes are wonderful.

Tchaikovsky. It wouldn't surprise me to learn he'd written a part for the kitchen sink in his music somewhere. Mad genius, that one...

These European bands are really doing it for me lately. Vola. Opeth. Leprous. Villagers of Ioannina City. Gojira.

I saw that tour. Most excellent.

Took youngest son out for dinner this evening and bored PW with our near constant talk of music, and somehow ended up talking about David Sylvian. He'd never heard this

the whole album is a treasure, but the driving bass line puts this one at the top in my book. And it's a simple arrangement really letting the individual parts shine without being too busy. And it's in 5/8. Pardon me while I nerd out.

Interesting interpretation of a fantastic song. 

Now-comedian-but-former-rocker Reggie Watts fronted a Seattle band called Maktub ("mock-tube") in the mid '90s thru early '00s. They covered the song well, too, IMO:

I'll throw this in here.  I'm not religious, but when Lauren Daigle had a few hits on the radio I became a big fan of her music.  My wife and I used one of her songs as our wedding song.  I took her on a surprise trip a few weeks ago to see her concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre.  What an amazing show she put on!!!  It was 45 degrees and drizzling/misty, poor girl was freezing her ass off but still sang her heart out.

This is her singing her most well known song at the show.

Я люблю слушать классику в современной интерпретации. Но иногда мне нравится рок, а иногда блюз. Мой день всегда поддерживается моим  плейлистом  Youtube  . Но что бы я ни слушал, я никогда не затыкаю оба уха наушниками — мне нравится слышать окружающий мир! Я никогда не забываю, что самую прекрасную музыку создает природа! А слышать окружающий мир это еще + к безопасности)))

June 21, 1969. Montreaux Jazz Festival. Les McCann (keyboard) Eddie Harris (sax), and Benny Bailey (trumpet).

Compared to What

From Wiki:

"Swiss Movement is a soul jazz live album recorded on June 21, 1969 at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland by the Les McCann trio, with saxophonist Eddie Harris and trumpeter Benny Bailey. The album was a hit record, as was the accompanying single "Compared to What", with both selling millions of units."

And this is what they say about Eddie:

"In 1969, he performed with pianist and vocalist Les McCann at the Montreux Jazz Festival. Although the musicians had been unable to rehearse, their session was so impressive that a recording of it was released by Atlantic as Swiss Movement. This became one of the best-selling jazz albums ever and was nominated during the 13th Annual Grammy Awards (1970) for the Best Jazz Performance – Small Group or Soloist with Small Group."
