Sounds with Sweets: Albums That Always Inspire Me
It's the third and final installment of this month's "Sounds with Sweets." In today's blog, Chris Fryar reveals which albums never cease to inspire him.
"There are many records/CDs that provide me with a constant flow of inspiration. Regardless of how many times I listen to them, I always hear something fresh and new. I would like to think that everyone (musicians especially) has a list of albums that never cease to inspire. Though the list is extremely long and encompasses many genres, here is my 'go-to' list that I’m always guaranteed to find inspiring:
Ten Summoner’s Tales --- Sting
Songs In The Key of Life --- Stevie Wonder
A Love Supreme --- John Coltrane
John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman --- John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman
Vinnie Colaiuta --- Vinnie Colaiuta
A Boy Named Charlie Brown --- Vince Guaraldi Trio
Aja --- Steely Dan
Col. Bruce Hampton and The Aquarium Rescue Unit [LIVE] --- Col. Bruce Hampton and The Aquarium Rescue Unit
Under The Table and Dreaming --- Dave Matthews Band
Star Time --- James Brown
Live and In Living Color --- Tower Of Power"
