Very beautiful indeed.
If you go towards more 'classical' music from here, you get to Arvo Part - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Y9RgbGLLfE - and John Tavener pretty soon.
If you go towards more improvised music, Keith Jarrett.

Thanks for the sugestions Kim. I will check John Tavener. The rest of them I already know. Spiegel Im Spiegel is very beautiful. I haven't heard it in a long time.

He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

Guy Gerber Fabric 64
"An important term for meditative absorption is samadhi. We often translate that as ‘concentration’, but that can suggest a certain stiffness. Perhaps ‘unification’ is a better rendition, as samadhi means ‘to bring together’. Deep samadhi isn't at all stiff. It’s a process of letting go of other things and coming to a unified experience."
Bhikkhu Anālayo

A brilliant, sensual piece of music, and Williams does it justice.

Jazz, of course. Because it expresses the essence of the true dhamma. And who embodies it?
Louis, the master. The King of all that is real and good. At least here, in 1928, when Jazz ruled America, and there was a voice of purity rising above all. His trumpet playing on this recording borders on the miraculous.

Armstong is cool. I discovered "St James Infirmary"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cMbRV5d7TeY
from listening to Bob Dylan's "Blind Willie McTell", a song he left off Infidels...
http://www.bobdylan.com/us/songs/blind-willie-mctell
If you don't have that album you can listen to the track here if you're willing to sit through the adds:
http://www.wat.tv/video/bob-dylan-blind ... gh7d_.html

And here's another outtake.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIwau5u5Rt4

And here's Mick Taylor performing it (Taylor and Knofler played on the sessions).

Brilliant song.

loud gush the streamlets,

And, if you listen to St James Infirmary, you can see where some of the imagery (not to mention the tune...) comes from...
Louis Armstron wrote:"I went down to the St. James Infirmary
I saw my baby there,
She's laid out on a cold white table,
So so cold, so white, so fair."

Bob Dylan wrote:I’m gazing out the window
Of the St. James Hotel
And I know no one can sing the blues
Like Blind Willie McTell


This is my favorite song that made it onto the Infidels Album: I and I.

My lord its been an age since I've listened to Infidels.
I'll have to put it on my wish list for santa.
