Here are some of my favorite jazz albums that are just perfect during the cold, dark winter nights. Accompanied by a glass of vintage port or a smoky whisky, these create the perfect mood for a fly tying session. Enjoy!
Joni Mitchell: Both Sides Now
A stunningly beautiful album with a big orchestra. Joni’s singing is incredible, and the recording and the arrangements are like honey to ears…
Bill Evans: Waltz for Debby
One of the most significant piano trio recordings of all times. A big influence to me!
Keith Jarrett: The Melody at Night, With You
Keith Jarrett recorded this in his home studio after a long period of illness. Beautiful, simple melodies played with such an intimacy and care – it’s almost as if you were let to sneak into his studio where he’s playing all alone in the middle of the night.
That’s right. How come can you pick some of my old favorites? Well, I have made a new fly: My Precious…(see my facebook site) it will be used in Nicaragua in March, trying to catch a big tarpon..
