Various Kodo (Including a DVD) - recently got a new drum and looking to develop my drumming 8)


Hi Andy,

Have you thought about joining a local taiko group (if there is one)?  Community taiko groups are pretty big in North America:

Some friends of mine are founders of the Mount Shasta Taiko group, which holds a big summer festival every year:

Illuha - Akari  -   Pretty good typical 12k stuff.
GoGo Penguin - v2.0  -  Contemporary piano jazz.  I think they are up for the Mercury Prize in England.
John Luther Adams - Become Ocean  -  Basically a classical version of drone music.  Nice.
Danish String Quartet - Wood Works  -  Very nice traditional tunes that don't get jiggy(?) or annoying, perfect balance.

Glad to hear it Chris. Yes, the first track is the weakest for me too, but then the album really begins and is a mighty fine trip that could go on forever.

APK: I followed your advice and obtained a copy of Alio Die's Honeysuckle. You're right: This is absolutely amazing! I steered away from this for a while because, based on the samples, the first track just seemed a bit blah and I never really paid attention after that. I still feel that way about the first track. But the remaining tracks are fantastic--especially the Honey Mushroom series, which is some of the best drifting, ethereal music in his catalog.

A great review has been made for The Sleeper's Night Journey, praising its ambient qualities and even rating it as a Top Album.

My Mom had a couple of boyfriends over the many years after my Dad passed away. I had no particular bond with them, but was always civil in our social situations and treated them as I would expect my girlfriend to be treated. They were decent guys. I don't think my Mom even thought they measured up to my Dad but I was genuinely happy that she had someone close in her life again. Carrying on in life despite all the losses and changes is vital to finding and maintaining contentment. Good for your Mom and good luck to you to find the inner acceptance that you need.
