Eric Stone is my favorite, I'd listen him over Buffet any day. In fact I'm listening right now.

My sailing MP3 player is about 6 by 15 with a built in speaker. It has Melissa Etheridge's latest, Tracy Chapmans latest, and classic Counting crows arranged so that one of each is played in order.

Hmm, sailing music? I bought the Malt Shop collection and it fits for Oh Joy since most of that stuff was playing when she was young. Other than that, anything from Rap to Classical with Rock, Hip Hop Jazz and whatever else is handy thrown in. Oh, Enya, on special occasions.

Oh, no Buffett on my boat either, at least, not yet.

Thumbs up Kenny Chesney

I'm surprised no one has mentioned my favorite album:

Old Blue Chair by Kenny Chesney

We're considering banning Christian violating the "Be Nice" rule. This is about the most heinous threat we've ever seen here on the Forum!

Wow . . . a blast from the past! I had the privilege of seeing Cecilio and Kapono perform in an intimate bar in Vail, Colorado when I lived and worked there over the winter of '74-75 (IIRC). They performed with such a mellow vibe that it was a relaxing treat to let their music just wash over you. It might have been below zero outside with everything covered in snow, but inside that small, warm bar, Cecilio and Kapono could transport the listener to the tropical Pacific and fill the room with the Aloha Spirit. Good stuff.

Reggae

One of the reasons I travel is to immerse myself in different cultures, and that means music as well as food and friends. I can always listen to the "oldies" but how often do you get a chance to hear/see local acts strutting their stuff? Most of the time I'm gathering and listening to local music either by buying CDs/tapes or recording music on my cheap audio recorder.

I can't dance, I've got a tin ear for language, but I can appreciate the talent and culture of music anywhere. And most times, the local music seems to fit in perfectly.

All alone on a night watch, I love quietly listening to the dark and brilliant songs of Leonard Cohen.

His words and melodies take me on a roller coaster ride of emotions as you feel his darkest depressions only to come out singing Hallelujah! ...but not as well as this artist

I was aboard a vessel in Fort Lauderdale

It was in a yard...next to a place Called "Shirt Tail Charlies".

Every Saturday and Sunday it was live steel drum music and the island wailers.....the rest of the time it was on tape.....I aquired a severe dislike to steel drum unintelligible "Island Music"....right up there with hip-hop and rap.
