|big daddy kane i get the job done - it's a big daddy thing|
|ricky skaggs my father's son - brand new strings|
|johnny cash daddy sang bass - live at san quentin|
i love johnny cash's deep rolling voice and the earnest delivery he unabashedly lays out alongside his western swagger. i doubly love the irony that my daddy, a fun-loving tone-deaf trucker, can't hold a tune in a bucket. don't make me no never mind. i love him just the same (and get plenty of comic relief from his occasional singing performances).
|marilyn crispell little song for my father - vignettes|
this is such a beautiful album. i learned of marilyn through her work with the braxton quartet. i took a chance on this ecm cut, and it does not disappoint. her solo inventions are hauntingly captivating. i can feel her touch through my headphones, and am led through her thought process in the same way that mahler and hindemith welcomed their listeners.
|bennie wallace big jim does the tango for you|
i love love love this tune. i went through a big george michael phase back in junior high. i remember buying the "faith" cassette from k-mart (complete with the extra unnecessary plastic comb appendage), only to have my mom turn me back around and return it immediately. the video is so great. we did a 3x5 indian raga version of this classic.
