Some of my favorites these days:







:anjali:
-Samāhitam cittam yathābhutam pajānāti.

समाहितं चित्तं यथाभूतं पजानाती |

A concentrated mind sees things as they really are.

-Ujuko nāma so maggo, abhayā nāma sā disā.

उजुको नाम सो माग्गो, अभया नाम सा दिसा |

'Straight' is this path, fearlessness is its way.

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.

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.

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

Brilliant song.

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.
