Life’s Soundtrack – Another strong run with music from Joanne Shaw Taylor!

So I came home a little early tonight so that I could get in a run , before we went to see my mom. I decided to run a nice easy 4 mile out and back. The course is a variation on my regular out and back run, the start of the run is different, so I looked at the course on Runner’s World before i went, to see were the turn around point was, I ran the first mile in 9:28 when I crossed  the second mile  and looked at my watch and saw 20:22, and I knew I went a little too far! So that moved the 3rd mile mark but the last mile was 9:52 which wasn’t bad. Overall the 4.2 mile course was completed in 41:32 for an average pace of 9:55 still an improvement over last two months! A slight difference I couldn’t find any running tights so I ran without and right now my legs feel good, we’ll see tomorrow, but last time I ran without them the pain in my knee was immediate!

The soundtrack of the run was the one planned for the other night, the new album from Joanne Shaw Taylor,  Almost Always Never.  This is a great blues album from a great young blues guitarist!  My run was shorter than the album, so I only listened to 10 of the 12 tracks and all sounded great. The three tracks that stood out were the opening track “Soul Station”. “Jealousy” and “Tied and Bound”, but the others were good, too. I loved the interplay between Joanne’s dynamite guitar riffs and the great organ work of Dave Garza.

Joanne has opened for a touring Joe Bonamassa, at his request, and in June of this year she played with Annie Lennox at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert at Annie’s request!

Here’s a little taste of “Soul Station”, “Jealousy”, and “Standing to Fall”
