CD TOP 10 2008

Normally only coffee articles on this blog.
Time for an exception, or is music from an espresso bar related anyhow?

1966 must have been a wonderful musical year. Last year it was jazz singer crooner Lou Rawls who scored best new CD with a '66 production, this year it was a French 1966 record that gave us a lot of pleasure.

2) Ethiopiques Hypnotic Grooves, The very best off
3) The Horace Silver Quintet, Doin' the Thing, Live At the Village Gate
4) Sammy Davis Jr/Buddy Rich, The sounds of '66 (again that year!)
5) Bohannon, Greatest Hits
6) Trijntje Oosterhuis, Strange Fruit (and the only 'new' recording)
7) Freddie Hubbard, Hub Cap
8) Donny Hatheway, Come Back Charleston Blues Soundtrack
9) Jimmy Smith, The Sermon
10) Bo Diddley, The Essential

11) French Cd's from Brigit Bardot, Francoise Hardy, France Gall, Serge Gainsbourg, Femmes de Paris et d'autres.....(this was a very French year).
