its not the artist, its the type of music that is more important. i like funk (70's) and guitar/organ blues.

I always have a hard time with these kinds of posts - because what is on the top of my list changes regularly - with mood, and with discovery of new artists, new releases. But anyway, here goes:
* Camel - is likely to be at the top of my list more often than not
* King Crimson, and other things Fripp
** Prog in general
* Eva Cassidy
* Patricia Barber
* Lisa Gerrard (Soundtracks, Dead Can Dance)
* Cowboy Junkies
* Mark Knopfler (and Dire Straits)
* Gene Clark
. . . I told you I have trouble with this . . . :-]
My main interest is in classical solo piano music, so -
My favorite better known artists include -
Just to name a few
And I never seem to tire of listening to Debussy's Preludes by Paul Jacobs.
Steve O: :^) Nice to see so much overlap in composers we enjoy! As to "all in one night," I often bounce quite a ways in a single evening. One of the joys of a large record collection for me is being able to go as the mood strikes from one recording to another.
Newbee: Great to see someone else who appreciates both Ivan Moravec and Paul Jacobs' recordings of the Debussy Preludes!
I have a separate shelf of CAN records and all its artists solo albums. CDs are also separated from the whole collection.
Whatever is associated with CAN is very very special to me.
It's very hard to categorize their music since it's too tallented just to call it progressive rock. It's much more to it...
I dunno; Haydn and Shastokovich back-to-back would strip my gears! Would have to take a loooong break in between.
If you're into solo piano you should try Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier and Goldberg Variations. Great stuff.
A concert grand must sound wonderful on your Linbrooks.
I'm into Lounge and Downbeat music and have been for a number of years. Zero 7, Massive Attack, Thievery Corp., Stephane Pompougnac, Morhpine, Gotan Project, Lemon Jelly, Tosca, Nightmares on Wax, Mozez, Om Lounge, Karsh Kale, Budha Bar, Afro Celt Sound System, Groove Junkies, Hideo Kobayashi, Jazzanova, Koop, B-Tribe to name just a few.
For me this is the genre creating the most buzz in music today. It's the Jackson Pollack of music, blending many cultures instruments and rhythms together to generate something new and interesting.
