New Age

I spend a lot of time reading and when I read I love to have music on in the background

Twang Tuesday Part II – Jupiter Coyote

Ok so maybe they’re not that twangy but they do have a banjo and fiddle and that’s close enough for me. Anyway the band that I listened to the longest and liked the most on the first listen yesterday was Jupiter Coyote and their album Waxing Moon and as usual these guys have been around forever, well at least 20 years and I’ve never heard of them! But then I just started listening to bands like Widespread Panic and New Monsoon so here’s some background from their website:

Welcome Back and this AM – Burning Sky!

After two days on the road – six hours plus to Williamsburg on Monday and then pack up my daughters stuff at William and Mary and then six plus hours back yesterday I am back and maybe can even write some stuff today to catch up!! I didn’t really listen to anything new on the trip just listened to a mix of the stuff I already had on the mp3 player!

I listened quickly to some different blues musicians last night but couldn’t listen to them this morning as I was doing some writing so I listened to some Native American flute music! First Canyon records artist Burning Sky and their album A Simple Man. Burning Sky comes from Arizona and is composed of Aaron White on guitar and Kelvin Bizahaloni on Native American flute with Michael Bannister on percussion. They  perform original instrumental music influenced by Native American themes and contemporary styles. I really like the CD and will listen to more by these guys!

So one of the other types of music that I listen to at work when background music without lyrics is needed or at times of stress is American Native Flute. My favorite artist is R. Carlos Nakai. I also listen to Robert Tree Cody and Douglas Spotted Eagle. One artist who I have listened to a little is Mary Youngblood , but the other day I downloaded onto the mp3 player her 2002 release Beneath the Raven Moon and I have a new Native American flutist to listen to! Here’s what her website says about the album which one a Grammy in 2003
