I'm two months away from my 30th birthday and, on my way to work this morning, I bought my first country album. Hank's greatest hits. I also picked up John Coltrane's Coltrane for Lovers.
I'm in love with slow jams... and jazz just smokes.
I'd like to pick up Jack Johnson's "Brushfire Fairytales" too. Folk and blues-inflected pop, backed by the slide guitar of Ben Harper... it has a very homey, very slow-handed hendrix-type feel.
