what music would you like today?

Jason Mraz "Tonight Not Again; Live at Eagles Ballroom"
Jason Mraz is an artist made for the live performance. Unrestrained in musical style, his music displays an incredible fusion of jazzy rhythms, folky undertones, and the catchy riffs of pop. A mellow grove brings continuity to each track with lyrics that flow from poetry set to music to funky scat rhythms. John Popper makes a surprise appearance and performs with Jason in two songs. His uninhibited style bringing harmony to several genres of music has parallels henna’s ability to bring together people of varying and complex beliefs and traditions.

Cannonball Adderley "Somethin' Else"
Led by Cannonball, this quartet also features the incredible talent of Miles Davis, Art Blakey, and Hank Jones. With Cannonball’s ability to bring swing to all he touched fused with Miles Davis’ equal talent in bringing “cool”, this album is pure balance of energy and calm. An amazing piece of work, this album gets a gold star in setting a creative tone for any artistic endeavor.

Michelle Branch " Hotel Paper"
Michelle Branch landed on the scene in the midst of the Brittany/Christina era, offering a refreshing alternative in pop culture as a young female artist to write her own songs and music. She replaced revealing clothing and dance routines with an acoustic guitar and meaningful lyrics reminiscent of Seattle coffee house artists. With powerful melodies and lyrics inspired by her own experiences, this album breathes truth.

Shakira "MTV Unplugged"
With a style all her own, Shakira performs this complete work in Spanish, live, with a rocky edge and a touch of eastern flair. There is considerable variation in tones from piece to piece with unique instrumentation throughout the entire collection as MTV takes away all electric instrumentation for a more traditional, acoustic flavor. This is the best in “chill out music” with the added benefit of a red-headed Shakira before she went blonde on the world.

Jet "Get Born"
Part of a recent revival in retro rock, this Australian 4-piece blends hard edges with catchy rhythms in a style reminiscent of the Rolling Stones and 4-way harmonies reminiscent of the Beatles. This is an album that doesn’t grow old with a second spin around the stereo and is particularly beneficial to the henna artist as the booklet is laden in flowy line art.
