Djam Leeli,circa 1984,by Baba Maal and Mansour Seck,from the years when I loved and listened to African music. Suspect that was a golden age,tho I haven't kept up.

Pentangle: The Time Has Come 1967-1973 (Discs 3 & 4) (I think what attracts me to this music is the jazz rhythm section (underneath the two great guitar players) -- but shoot me, I like it)

 

Steve Lehman Octet: Mise en Abime

 

Cavalli: Missa pro Defunctis/Motets/Sonatas (Gini/Coro "C. Monteverdi' di Crema/Quoniam/Academia Dia. Pason/Contori Gregoriani) (see below)

 

Galuppi: 25 Harpsichord Sonatas (Ilario Gregoletto) (there's so much good music out there that none of us has heard)

People have indeed been shot for liking Pentangle.

But that's a quick, clean death compared with what awaits Genesis fans.

Pentangle played my prep-school in the mid 1960s but I don't hold it against them. Danny Thompson is a fine double bass player in any form of music.

Donald Lawrence & Co.: YRM (your righteous mind) (this may be a little slick, but listening to it, you get the happy feeling that gospel is in good hands)

 

Ries: Concert Overtures (Griffiths/WDR Sinfonieorchester Koln) (this is a perfect example of fairly anonymous music that you'll like if you like the genre -- here Beethovenian Classical-into-Romantic -- without its being particularly distinguished in and of itself) (so Ferdinand Ries = Sonny Stitt)
