Diana, at Edmonton's Jazz City in 2003 I saw both Modeski, Martin and Wood and Erik Truffaz knowing nothing about them and experienced two wonderful concerts.
MM&W played at our newish concert hall which has superb acoustics (apparently one of the best in the world). The bass player - don't know who he is - played acoustic bass totally unamplified at the front of the stage and it could be clearly heard everywhere - amazing.

At the risk of completely spoiling my rep here (such as it is), lately I've been turning to the music of my reckless teen years for a bit of light listening/nostalgia in between reggae sessions...80's pop, the cheesier and more disposable the better (no hair bands, however). Currently playing on Live365: John Cougar Mellencamp, "Pink Houses".

Yes deep soul, yes RnB etc but right now I turn to the works of Mr. Jerry Lee Lewis in his mid 60s Country period singing Wine Me Up, You Went Out Of Your Way (To Walk On Me) and so forth. This is very solid, nourishing stuff.

Well for me it's 60's Garage/Psychedelia...or anything whimsical and floaty...

lately been listening to much stuff on this label. latest mr scruff mix is well worth checking, traverses through heaps of genres.
often spin some older hip hop, heiroglyphics, the pharcyde, wu-tang solo projects and some french things.
west african artists orchestra baobab, cheik lo, infang bondi...also been enjoying the ethiopiques compilations.
often listen to middle eastern/north african - dhafer youssef in particular lately has some really interesting stuff.

electronic type of things. the skam label is consistently pleasing of late.
hip hop. lots of stones throw.
funk. daptone is kinda running things.

nice to see wolfgang press represented! everything thru "queer" is v. good. nice combo of sampling/sequencing and live instrumentation.
I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!

It always depends on my mood...
Just had a Fellow Travellers phase before Christmas, playing all their albums again and again and finally doin' a comp. with my faves.
Btsides that, been playing lots of Soul, 50's Rock'n'Roll, 60's Garage and 40's R&B lately.

most everything

is there a good reason to confine yourself to a few genres and periods?
