Favorite Music Anything & everything, from rock to soul via easy listening. Last song that made an impression was Florence & The Machine - Raise It Up (Rabbit Heart). Voices that have touched me include Mica Paris, Anita Baker, Loleata Holloway, Rickie Lee Jones, (Last Chance Texaco), Dido (No Angel), Deborah Harry (strange but true), Noddy Holder & Jamiroquai. Tracks that have moved me include To Be In Love & Runaway - Masters At Work feat India (love that voice!), Pienso En Ti - Masters At Work feat Luis Salinas, Sincere by MJ Cole, (The Man!), Music & Wine - Blue Six, So Nice - Bebel Gilberto, Entra Mi Casa - Armand Van Helden, Elle - DJ Gregory, E Samba - Junior Jack, Back Together - Hardsoul & anything touched by Grant Nelson. 90's Soul & Acid Jazz play their part and I also have a passion for that music that we used to call 'Soul & Dance' in the 80's, it now gets flagged up as '80's Groove' but that excludes the 70's Soul, Philly, Salsoul, Rap, Funk & Rare Groove that rubbed shoulders with it back in the day. Music that I have battered my ears with on a regular basis includes, Coldcut - Journey by DJ mix, Fun Lovin' Criminals - Bag Of Hits, Mana - Esenciales (Sol), Ian Pooley - Since Then, Tosca - Suzuki, ZZ Top - One Foot In The Blues, Little Feat - Waiting For Colombus, Original Lynyrd Skynyrd, Steely Dan, Rodriguez Y Gabriella, Van Halen (with Dave Lee Roth), Rory Gallagher (Live) & early Slade. ;-)

You moved the pot before the coffee stopped brewing. Do you smell the mountains or the burro?

I smell rough ground. ;-)
