purchased a large portion of my CD collection was purchased through
No Borders- Keiko Matsui is by far my favorite recording artist. Her mustic is
mostly instrumental, but with a few isolated vocal elements performed
by other artists. Matsui's music is Jazz with a touch of other genres
blended beautifully. The music in her No Borders album brought to
mind the music Chicago and Billy Joel, but with a Japanese influence.
Full Moon and the Shrine even blends in a little bit of rap, and while
I don't particularly like rap, I liked the touch of it the way it was
blended with her music. In all her albums the tracks share a common
theme, making the CD something to be listened to in its entirety.
Chicago IX - Greatest Hits -
This album has the classic early tracks and is truly the best of
Chicago's greatest hits albums. All of the songs on this album were
hits. The music is up-beat, with lots of brass. If you were only
going to get one Chicago album, this should be it.
Songs from a Secret Gardern - Secret Garden.
The Book of Secrets - Loreena McKennitt.
American Pie - Don McLean.
When playing this album you must listen to the words for each song,
and try to understand them. The title track is actually one of the
more upbeat songs on the album. The words and the music throughout
the album are captivating, beautiful, and memorable but sad. This is
an album that will make you think.
- Billy Joel.
As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls - Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays.
