A Viberatto: A

Led by Jimmy Goodman, and featuring Garth Hudson (yes, THAT Garth Hudson) and Tony Levin (yes, THAT Tony Levin) as well as Jane Scarpantoni on cello (check out her credits on allmusic.com) and Ross Rice on keyboards...

Self-described as "beautiful instrumental chamber rock music", it's a great sound and highly recommended.

Old Stuff Friday: Midnight Special Tribute

I don't necessarily remember all of these. My mom wouldn't always let me stay up past midnight when I was 12... I think these dvd's might be fun to own.

Steely Dan: "Reeling In the Years"



Al Green: "Let's Stay Together"



Cheap Trick: "Surrender"

Albert Hammond Jr.: "Postal Blowfish"

Albert Hammond paying tribute to GbV, one of the Strokes' musical heroes... this sounds pretty good!

Looked up this video because I wanted to see how he played it on guitar... pretty cool.

Matthew Ryan: "The Wilderness"

Thanks for the suggestion, Slotts. Looks like Matthew released an electric and acoustic version of his latest disc, Dear Lover. I assume this is from the former, and there are plenty of videos made to songs from the latter, both on youtube and his website.

This sounds fantastic, really reminds me of Roxy Music's "second heyday" from Manifesto through Avalon. According to the website, he's got Brian Eno on board.
