Gotta love shuffle-play on my iPod once in a while. For today's lunchtime walk I ran across a few songs that I'd forgotten about that were cool:
In reverse order:
1. "No Me Llores Mas" - Marc Ribot from "The Prosthetic Cubano" - classic Cuban groove
2. "First Light" - Frank Gambale, from "The Light Beyond" one of the more 'groovin' songs from Frank. I thought it was Scott Henderson at first...great chord voicings!
3. "Spanish Fly" - Van Halen, from "Van Halen II" - tapping on a classical guitar; so cool!
4. "Memory is a Gimmick" - Aquarium Rescue Unit, from "Mirrors of Embarassment" - The spoken lyrics reminded my of Frank Zappa. Always funky grooves from bassist Oteil Burbridge and drummer Apt Q258
5. "Stone Woman" - Bryan Ferry, from "Boys and Girls" - great slap bass 80's groove! No wonder it is such a hot groove:
David Gilmour - guitar; Omar Hakim - drums (ouch!); possibly Marcus Miller on bass!
6. "Late Show" - Paul Schaeffer the original full song version with (I believe) Hiram Bullock - guitar; Will Lee - Bass; Steve Jordan - drums; and David Sanborn - alto sax.
7. "Stella by Starlight" - Bireli Lagrene from "Standards", burnin' jazz with Andre Ceccarelli - drums, and Neils Henning Orsted Pedersen - bass
