23/5/21 – MARTY’S DAILY ALBUM PICKS

Music today has been The BeatlesRevolver (1966). I was playing Rajan And Your Bird Can Sing to illustrate McCartney’s great pure melodic harmonies. Then recommended by Chris Barlow in St. Louis, I listened to Hearty Har, John Fogerty’s sons, Tyler and Shane. I only heard it once so far, it’s nothing like Creedence, I especially liked the track Canyon Of The Banshee, I need to hear the whole album again, can’t see it on vinyl anywhere? Spotify then continued onto Hedvig Mollestad Trio from Norway, great contemporary progressive jazzy instrumental music with Hedvig on guitar, and Ellen Brekken on bass with Ivar Loe Bjørnstad on drums. The album I listened to is called Ding Dong. You’re Dead. (2021). Hedvig has something of her own style although there are moments where she reminds me of the “Norwegian sound” in the same way Terje Rypdal does. Other times there’s something Zappaesque but absolutely something all her own. Great music if you like this kind of thing.
