What would it be like if 80% or more of the prospects you talk to became clients? I remember what it was like having lots of conversations with prospects and consistently coming away from those conversations empty handed. Those consultations left me frustrated and even doubting if I was in the right business. Since I hated how that felt, I dedicated myself to learning everything I could about the art of enrolling clients. I knew that without this skill my business would never grow.
When you're a drummer playing behind the vocal heights of Jon Anderson, the guitar virtuosity of Steve Howe, or the keyboard genius of Rick Wakeman, you may expect to be disregarded from time to time. Aside from die-hard fans of Yes or King Crimson, Bill Bruford's drumming is taken for granted more often than not, when in fact he's one of the finest rock drummers to emerge from the era. Master Strokes: 1978-1985 is a well-assembled compilation of some of Bruford's best drum work, spanning numerous styles and examples of percussive artistry. All 14 tracks explore the many sides of Bruford's repertoire, delving into jazz fusion, straightforward rock, and progressive rock, and laying out some entertaining examples of how much fire the drums can truly muster, not only in their bombastic state, but also as an accompaniment to other instruments and rhythms as well.
Revered for his "Dust My Broom" riff, the biggest slide guitarist in postwar blues was a major link between traditional Delta and modern Chicago blues.
Bill Laswell has worked closely with many of the greatest names in Reggae: Sly and Robbie, Lee Scratch Perry and many others. A Dub Master Supreme, he turns his fabulous creativity to the classic Tzadik release Feast of the Passover. Featuring some of the greatest Passover seder songs, it is perhaps David Solid Gould’s most varied and spiritually inspired project. Connecting the Rasta and Jewish traditions through the miracle of music, Laswell’s imaginative dubs are the perfect background to anyone's 21st century seder. Moody, atmospheric and essential!
Following on from 2011's 'Model Village,' Sonoluxe's Super-Listener Series presents 'Songs Of The Blossom Tree Optimists,' a 15 track, neo-baroque, dream-folk album featuring acoustic guitars, minimalist orchestra and percussion, all topped off with Bill's melodic vocals. The album's lush odes to Spring and the rustic, sensual pleasures of imaginary Summer evenings take the listener down green and leafy paths to secret gardens and shining fountains. A splendid companion piece to 'Model Village' but at the same time something entirely new.
