PoOPlists 2006

John DeLaire Poop 06

O.K. Boys and girls it’s Poop time. I was going to bow off this effort as the year in music through my ears was a bit ho-hum . Then I thought I have another chance here just to shoot off my opinionated and pompous mouth, let alone with like kind, so I’m in good company so let’s rock you ,rock me, rock on! LAMF.   Buy new or used through Amazon 10) Wayne Shorter “Night Dreamer” Well I copped this…


Paul Cangelosi Poop 06

Another year…another poop. Buy new or used through Amazon Buy new or used through Amazon Buy new or used through Amazon This was the year of the ARCTIC MONKEYS. I had heard (from Mr. Jim Meyers) and read about these bunch of teenagers from the UK putting out "Whatever People Say I am, That’s What I’m Not" and as soon as it came out over here it was in my hands. The band wanted to make a disc for their…


Kent B Poop 06

Sometimes the best things come in pairs. Well, at least for me in 2006, that’s the best way to discuss the year in music. So now it’s time to double your pleasure, because this year I am pooping Twins! Buy new or used through Amazon Buy new or used through Amazon Ornette Coleman – Sound Grammar Andrew Hill – Straight Lines For almost fifty years, Ornette Coleman has been the Shape of Jazz to Come, and this year’s entry includes…


Ken Beck Poop 06

  Buy new or used through Amazon 1. The Slip – Eisenhower (Bar/None) Albums that soar like this one are truly an endangered species. For all I know, the black and white photo of the small gazelle-like animal pictured on the cover very well may be a rare breed itself. Take the best indie rock moments of Built To Spill, the occasional complex rhythms of Tortoise, and the arena rock of days of yore and you’ll begin to get half…

Irv Rosen Poop 06

What I remember listening to in 2006 Randomly ordered using sophisticated sampling techniques:   Buy new or used through Amazon Orphans – Tom Waits A great set from one of rock’s great curmudgeons. Thematically arranged. Carnival sounds, love songs, even a protest or two. Magnificent.     Buy new or used through Amazon Nashville – Solomon Burke Country as it should sound. Soulful, with the distinct Buddy Miller influence. It’s a shame he was MIA so long.     Buy…


Eric Fine Poop 06

I look around the room for inspiration. It used to be that the music was enough. Didn’t matter whether it was good or bad; just mattered that it was new and I had something to say about it. Not this year. Not sure why. Personally, it’s been a year of wonderful triumphs. My wife and I had a beautiful baby boy. I was able to get back to NYC full-time with a job I really enjoy. I still have Rhapsody…


Duncan Clark Poop 06

Time seems to be at a premium this year so this is going to have to be an abridged version of the POOP list. It was a good, not great, year for music. No single work towered over everything else. The list is headed up by the first decent folk-rock band to come out of England in a long time. Politics made a welcome and needed comeback ranging from explicit self-righteousness (Neil Young)to party while you protest (Michael Franti) to…


Damian Cleary Poop 06

Bob Fino Poop 06

  Buy new or used through Amazon Bob Dylan – ‘Modern Times’ – How does someone who has never had to get up in the morning and go to work, write the painfully accurate and beautiful ‘Workin’ Man’s Blues # 2’? Pure genius. Record of the decade.     Buy new or used through Amazon Bruce Springsteen – ‘We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Session – The American Land Edition’ – ‘How Can A Poor Man Stand Such Times and Live’…
