Bloody hell. What a brilliant selection - particularly ending on Lygeti's Requiem - and what fascinating comments. I didn't keep up with Killing Joke after Revelations. Makes me want to hear more of them and more from Jaz Coleman. Thank you.
Albinoni's Adagio in Gm is my all time favourite.
Great selection. and the story about hearing Can for the first time is fantastic.
wow - Faith Healer could BE Killing Joke..... and would be one of their best too
Wow what a memory Jaz has, the explanations he gives are facinating to say the least...cant wait to get the new KJ album!!!!
Great artists always listen to many different kinds of music. Jaz Coleman is no exception. Killing Joke was one of the very first bands I saw live, back in the early 1980s, and seeing Coleman's devilish performance was one of those rare moments you could call life changing. You could say the same about many of the albums he selected. Impressive list.
If u see this jAZ get back to me....HOPE ALL IS WELL.
"That’s what it was like, there was a lot more fraternity in the industry than there is now."
I think the world changed ca. in 1980. Artists could make money with quality up to this point of time. Commercial views were accepted but though NOT common sense. We live in a total different time today. It ist difficult to understand why people prefer a "fun" culture nowadays. Good work for good money: that's what it was.
Is it just me or is there some text in the dark parts of Jaz's makeup in the pic above?

some great classical music
Great list except the excruciatingly boring Yello. But Jaz justified all his choices through pretty good reasoning.
Not exactly what I expected other than 16 and 15. PTxS
