Rained again yesterday so this seems appropriate. Weather Report, from their album Heavy Weather. The outstanding track Teen Town featuring the late Jaco Pastorius on bass. Enjoy Ark.
They really don’t make them like this anymore. Anderson’s voice is sharp as a tack. Not bad for a bloke in his seventies! Indulge yourself for a few minutes.
This song is scientifically proven to make you cooler just for listening to it. Trust me! This is the Ark. Would I lie to you?
With a nod to Notes for her post on the Obama’s Summer Playlist. In keeping with list of the ex-pres, I’ve kept it to 44. Why not compose your own and post it? Here’s mine … 1. Joy Filled Summer – Tony Williams Lifetime 2. Down to the Waterline – Dire Straits. 3. Dry County … More The Ark’s Summer Playlist
Bought this album in a small record shop in Hillbrow, Johannesburg soon after I arrived in South Africa. I loved the cover but had never heard of the band. Asked the bloke at the counter to give it a spin and bought it after less than two minutes. This is the title track. The album … More Automatic Man – Musical Interlude

I can’t think of anything found in today’s music that is comparable, either in technical ability or compositional skill. This is one of my favorite pieces from this … More They don’t make ’em like this any more ..
This track, from the 1975 Soft Machine album Bundles features guitarist Alan Holdsworth. Holdsworth was an innovator and virtuoso. He passed away in 2017. I realise this won’t be to everyone’s taste but the musicianship is phenomenal. They don’t make music like this anymore.
Renegade Expressions ran a post featuring Songs with Names. Here’s one of my favorites. The incomparable Dickey Betts and ”Jessica” T’ra! Ark
Burnable. Two outstanding guitarists. Robben Ford and Larry Carlton. The axemen cometh! Put on your ear goggles and enjoy. Ark.
If this doesn’t move you, I don’t know what will. The amazing Jeff Beck and friends.
Some random black bloke I found on the Utube. Nice hat! Ark.
