Erik Truffaz..

is simply a trumpet wizard!!

What can he do with it is sometimes simply unbelievable!!

If there is someone, who goes beyond the “traditional” jazz borders, than it is him!

This musician, originally born in Switzerland charmed me when I had been studying at college. Ask my roommates, who had to suffer long hours listening to this music 🙂

OK – let’s go deep in it!

Mari Boine Persen…

is a Norwegian, and by no means a mainstream singer. She mixed the language and singing style of her native Sami culture with jazz and rock.

However, I like the remixes of her songs even more.

So – I put here the set of two complete albums of these remixes.

Cassandra Wilson…

is a woman with really wonderful, soft, smooth and a bit of dark voice. I really love her songs and singing. She sings jazz and kinda bluesy songs and she is really good at singing these.

So, I will show you a few songs from her latest album, Thunderbird (2006).

Go to Mexico:

It would be so easy:

The Cinematic Orchestra

Well, I guess that it is time to put here some (modern!) jazz again.

Take some really good instrumentalists, add singer with beautiful voice, mix it to get a deep, multi-layered sound – and voilá – you have UK band The Cinematic Orchestra!

St. Germain

Today, I suddenly remembered one really good music – electro-nu-jazz from St. Germain (aka Ludovic Navarre). I used to listen to his song really often back in my college years… and still, when working or relaxing, I play it sometimes..

So – maybe some of you will find it interesting as I did..

Quantic (Soul Orchestra)

Will Holland is really good and talented musician. Despite of his young age he has made or produced a lot of really good music and most of it is really worthy of listening.

So – shall we listen? 🙂

Beastie Boys – only a hip-hop? No way!! :-)

Yup, Beastie Boys being a legendary formation for quite a long time, are not only about a hip-hop.

Even their last album – The Mix Up – is my most favourite one, of course with some singles from their previous albums. But as a whole – this one is the best to me!

These guys are simply great and I have to put them here to my music articles serie.

So – the first one – legendary and goddamn good video and music as well – Sabotage!

And yet another video, which deserves to be here – (You Gotta) Fight For You Right (To Party):

And now – the instrumental ones from their last album The Mix Up:

First – Off the Grid – namely the second half of this song is really something!

The Rat Cage:

Electric Worm:

And the final piece – quite good combination of Now Get Busy song and fan-clip of really great anime Samurai Champloo (recommend to all of you, who like Cowboy Bebop):

Norah Jones – girl with a really sweet voice

I really like her and her songs.

Although I have to have a right mood to listen these songs, they are really wonderfull. So calm and yet so strong. So gentle and yet carrying a great power.

But, enough of speaking, let’s go to the music!

Nightingale – do not mind the video, only the song is important 🙂

The Nearness of You – especially for D. 😉 (I love you!)
