Found an underrated genius today, absolutely god-tier stuff. Not the kind of stuff I would think HLTV people listen too, but give it a shot, it'll grow on you, and at least you will be able to appreciate it. A video: youtu.be/w06Vu-6DirU?t=23 An instrumental solo: youtube.com/watch?v=41fnieUud3s Some more: youtube.com/watch?v=fX1zv5niEHQ This guy was a genius and if you look him up his story is incredible.

I remember one of your threads, you're one of the few people on this site that listen to genres of music that people here would consider foreign to them. Respect.
2019-10-23 09:50
Always listen to your heart! There's no opinion more relevant than it's. Respect to you too.

Yes, great advice. I love acoustic music, I feel electronic music takes the soul out of songs to a degree nowadays.
2019-10-23 09:54
Not even necessarily acoustic, just man made and man played and man produced. That's all it takes, it can be an electronic guitar or a flute but the feeling and emotion should be there. All instruments should complement each other and in that sense, yeah, electronic bring some futuristic vibes, it doesn't touch as deep. Music should have flaws and human signs otherwise it's just science without an art's part in it.

"electronic bring some futuristic vibes, it doesn't touch as deep. Music should have flaws and human signs otherwise it's just science without an art's part in it." I dont agree with this. I have heard many electronic or computer produced music that has quite a lot of emotions. Tho i guess this just depends on everyones specific taste. So eh

Acoustic music has a nostalgia feeling advantage, so for the next century or so, it will remain that way I'm certain. Electronic music though has more ways to go and technical abilities, it always did come down to the live performance and if that will be the case, acoustic music will still reign.

Oh yeah people today feel nostalgic for acoustic. In a decade or two the young people of today will feel nostalgic for electronic. Also i think we both have different idea of what electronic is. I have never been to a live electronic concert. And yes some subgenres are better in the context of a live performance tho not all are. But then again. This comes down to my specific taste. youtube.com/watch?v=xSqwNnnnRls youtube.com/watch?v=bzZ27HFru6U&t=67s youtube.com/watch?v=oM6eZJRurFk youtube.com/watch?v=rDgacSTLP1s youtube.com/watch?v=U9kGpx88MoE

I'll be honest, I don't want to listen to that now, I'll just take your word for it. Giving you that. My taste is vastly different, I just know I won't like it. Depends on your state of mind, whatever chaos is happening there, that music you will like most likely. I believe that geniune feeling of kindness and politesse, caress for one another can be awoke in the right delivery. That's my dream, make world a little bit better place by changing the minds of people through music! Silly me!

Through most of his life ha had drug problems, serving several prison sentences due to it and losing his left eye because of it in 1973. He also made the theme from The Godfather.

Yeah, very sad story. He was on drugs apparently at the age of 9 after an accident which left him in chronic pain and led to a morphine addiction, among other things.

If you are into rhythm and blues you would also like Professor Longhair. Also a pianist and singer from New Orleans. youtu.be/p-lsiDJWMsQ

I respect your opinion and it's good that you gave it a listen. Can I ask why though?
2019-10-23 10:05
Well, I like blues because of the electric guitar and i like jazz for its drumming and bass playing, very rhythmic music and creative, while he shares the "bluesy/jazzy" tag the vast majority of his music is just piano ballads which I never really liked so not for me. I also don't find his voice to interesting whatsoever

Vast majority not all.. Nope didn't like it, it's sounds very familiar tho.

I'll check it out. You said you were into Jazz, what sort of Jazz do you listen to?
2019-10-23 10:36
Acid jazz, cool jazz and avant-garde mainly. I love miles davis, his early cool jazz records were great and his late 60's experimental jazz was amazin', charles mingus is great too, and john coltrane has been growing on me lately, and I'm sure you're familiar with them. As far as acid jazz go I'm a huge jamiroquai fan, their first 2 albums are fantastic acid jazz records definitely give them a spin. Shoegaze: Try Slowdive-Souvlaki, and for a more experimental sound, My Bloody Valentine - Loveless. I'm still exploring the Industrial rock/metal genre but thus far I've enjoyed Pretty Hate Machine by Nine Inch Nails and Skinny Puppy's Bites (Who are a big influence on NIN PHM album, that's why I checked it out).
2019-10-23 11:10
Yeah his story it's really interesting, probably more than his music (happens sometimes, see Sixto Rodriguez), although he's pretty good. I'd recommend you Bayou Maharajah, which is a good doc about him, I watched it on amazon video, not sure if you can find it elsewhere Also if you like him check out Otis Spann youtube.com/watch?v=pui2zoH2VlI and Champion Jack Dupree youtube.com/watch?v=WMTXO1z95uw

NICE, Spann is the shit. Haven't heard much of Champ. Have you heard Professor Longhair? youtube.com/watch?v=5ybizbeLVmY Didn't even know there was a documentary about Booker, definitely gonna check that out, thanks!
2019-10-23 10:15
yep but haven't really listened to him, thank for the link. I know him mostly for his major influence/collaborations with Dr John

This is the kind of music I could go see live for the skill that is involved, but the music itself doesn't touch me that much. It's good, but I would rather listen to something else almost always. I have a friend though who's really into this kind of stuff, I'll ask him if he knows this guy.

Good that u listened to it, seeing him live would be great.
2019-10-24 07:43
A genius who died of heart failure from abuse of heroin and alcohol? Who is likely not venerated because his music is popular today but only because he was a good musician when his type of music was popular and happened to be dis-positioned black and gay
