Music 101

Music is such a personal thing that one persons music choices may be another’s worst earache.  I think I carry with me an eclectic taste in music: I like Michael Jackson, not for his personal life, but for what he brought to music and dance. I like unknowns, such as Jon Amor, who, in my opinion, has brought a fresh voice to music. Sadly, he’s known in Europe, and little heard in the states. His album, Amor, is outrageous.  I like guitarists such as Scott Henderson, who combines both jazz and rock, and does so with a sense of humor.  Steely Dan’s Pretzel Logic is one of the greatest albums even done, in my opinion.
