Tom Waits Part 1 (The 70's & 80's): Music Suggestion Of The Day 28/09/2015



Today is the birthday of my beloved companion in the struggle, some call, Life…One of her favorite artists is today’s suggestion as the humblest (but not cheapest) of gifts. A way of remembering our hooks in this life…so today we’ re dealing with Baudelaire of jazz rock, an artist so distinctive, as yesterday’s lyrically mastermind, a bluesy improvising poet of the west, a Berthold Brecht of rock n roll a man that Hollywood already found the actor that would impersonate him (Ron Perlman)… a man that fraternized with everything Avant garde  of indie American urban rock community of the 70’s and managed to release masterpieces throughout his over 40 years spanning career. An artist hard to label (whoever can label the genre this artist is serving, might as well announce it to the rest of the world too!!) and even harder to ignore… his work is so big that we split up today’s suggestion in two parts, thus covering 4 decades of jazzy bluesy poetic rock music


The more experts quote on the artist (Source: Wiki): Born December 7, 1949, an American singer-songwriter, composer, and actor. He has a distinctive voice, described by critic Daniel Durchholz as sounding like "it was soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months, and then taken outside and run over with a car."[1] With this trademark growl, his incorporation of pre-rock music styles such as blues, jazz, and vaudeville, and experimental tendencies verging on industrial music,[2] Waits has built up a distinctive musical persona.
