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 Im always guaranteed to find inspiring:

Ten Summoners 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
