With very few exceptions, I love all kinds of music, and as I grow older, I find it resonating with a power and intensity that is astounding at times.
Lately I have been gravitating more and more towards roots music of all kinds and the proto-instrumentation of folk music. There is something incredibly compelling about its acousticity and raw power of those instruments, especially when coupled with the unadorned human voice. Genuineness has its redeeming qualities. In one aspect it has to do with the grit found in folk music, bluegrass, deep blues, gospel, Dixieland and other forms of non-commercial jazz , among many other genres.
But in general musical tastes really span the globe from folk through pop to the outer reaches of experimental music. Recently I have been exploring the music of Eastern Europe and the Balkans which I find to occupy a very distinct space in the musicology of the world. To my ears it sounds strangely virile, invigorating & jaunty.
