Sight + Sound of the Day
The other night in Baltimore, someone who's been reading my blog asked me what kind of music I'll be listening to once I step into my old-man gear, brutally streamline my CD shelves and start listening to music I actually want to listen to. It'll pretty much be ish like this Crusaders/Randy Crawford classic. Also, I've recommended it a million times before but if you don't already have Randy Crawford's excellent debut CD Raw Silk, it's a must own. Jazz-steeped soul music that is absolutely timeless, the recording has flawless versions of "Nobody" (which I actually prefer to the Nina Simone version), "I Hope You'll Be Very Unhappy Without Me," "Where There Was Darkness," "Someone To Believe In," and "I Stand Accused."
