Music Randomness 1.0
My latest CD acquisitions include these three:
Sade – Soldier of Love.
Nigerian-born British citizen Helen Folasade Adu, better known as Sade (pronounced shah-DAY), hadn’t release any music for a decade, but this new CD is as good as her others. Moody and sexy.
Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band – Greatest Hips, Vol. 2 Live
A funky ‘horn band’ based in Asheville, NC. Sounds like they have a fun live show.
Leningrad Philharmonic Orchestra – Tchaikovsky Symphonies 4, 5 and 6
Rock on, Peter T!! Evgeny Mravinsky, Conductor from 1938 till 1988, keeps your music alive and kicking.
Live music in my future:
Tower of Power – State Theatre in Falls Church, VA this Friday (March 26th). A horn-driven soul/funk band from the 70s and 80s that’s still around and still sounding funky. Got my tickets, convinced a co-worker to share the funk.
Bon Jovi – Still working on getting tickets to this one, March 29th in DC.
