Currently listening to Charles Mingus's "Me, Myself an Eye", which is released as his first posthumous album just two months after his death. Due to his illness at old age, he does not perform in any of the tracks but acts as a composer instead. It's a weird album to say the least, even for Mingus himself, with the album quite possibly containing his longest original track, "Three World of Drums". Said track is probably the best track on the album, with how absurd it is in nature, yet somehow pleasantly charming as well, featuring long drum sequences from three drummers including Dannie Richmond. The other three (much shorter tracks) vary in nature, with a "Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting" rendition that seems to lean more heavily towards swing and hard bop than it's normal heavy influence of blues and gospel. The other two tracks "Devil Woman " and "Carolyn Kiki Mingus" are more forgettable, unfortunately, although I did like the trumpet solo for "Devil Woman ". Overall, not a bad album, but certainly not his best. However, I can't imagine any other album sending him off better than this.

Highlights for me are: "Three World of Drums" and "Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting".

Side note: I could not find any renditions of Charles Mingus's "Epitaph" concert albums organized after his death, anywhere I could find it on streaming services?

Muse - Black Holes and Revelations (2006)

It's been ages since I listened to this brilliant album, but I felt the urge to take my ship of the imagination to to a futuristic, vaguely dystopian, mildly Andalusian vision of Mars, and this is perfect. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

Have been completely obsessed with Kamasi's version of "Clair De Lune" the past few days..

But now I'm really enjoying Explosions in the Sky's wonderful post-rock record The Earth is not a Cold Dead Place.

I love a good unconventional-but-perfectly-apt simile myself.

After Mamunia came up earlier of course I have to listen to it now. a-hard-days-night-george-9

@lovelyritametermaid 

This album has been a part of my life from my birth. Ironically this uses stereo version of songs originally done in Mono on Candance Records. When oldies radio became a thing in the 70's I thought those songs sounded strange. If you haven't heard him I highly recommend Gram Parsons. He was one of the Everly Brothers biggest disciples

Edit: I forgot that "Maggie's Farm" gave me PTSD from my one creative writing teacher who absolutely loved the song and made us rewrite the lyrics and came in and sang us 12-year-olds a terrible cover of it. Oh well
