This week Martin Carthy gets a well earned rest and we’re back to Miles Davis.
I sometimes wonder if, when I grow up and become a “proper” man, I’ll have a complete collect of everything that an artist / group has recorded. If I ever do reach this stage, I will not have assembled the complete works of Miles Davis; Amazon is currently listing 1059 albums. June Tabor (59 albums), Martin Carthy (30 albums) or James Carr (14 albums) are more likely candidates!
Today I’m posting Flamenco Sketches from Kind of Blue. If I had posted this a month or so back I could have dedicated it to the fabulous Spanish football team that lifted the Euro 2012 trophy. As I’m posting it now, a little while after the tournament, I’ll dedicate it instead to all those in Spain who are suffering in the fall out to the financial crisis, especially those who would dearly love a job and cannot find one.
