Album 19. Sings the Gershwin Songbook - Ella Fitzgerald, 20. The Genius of Ray Charles - Ray Charles, 21. Kind of Blue - Miles Davis, 22. Marty Rob...

...bins - Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs.

I am finding that I'm faultering a little with this challenge. Listening to the albums is no problem, but I'm finding it quite difficult to write about anything that doesn't provoke any strong feelings. It's easy to write about stuff I really like and even easier with stuff I hate.

These 4 albums have inspired nothing in me at all. Not terrible, but not great either, they just are what they are.

Hey, you were doing so well, there. What happened, need a new needle for your record player?

I know what you mean. I have a whole list of albums I've started to write about and have only managed one sentence. I find the secret is to not think about what you think other people want to hear and just say what random thoughts come into your head (no, not *those* thoughts though, it's not that sort of blog).
"Kind Of Blue" is one of the greatest albums of all time though - I could listen to "All Blues" over and over again, and I don't count myself as a jazz fan.
Have you tried "In A Silent Way"?
