    I actually like all the Fleet Foxes offshoots more the the original band. This is cool...

      Rickie Lee Jones. This tune -- "Lucky Guy" -- sounds a bit like Randy Newman meets Nilsson.



      "Woody & Dutch on the Slow Train to China" ... "Man, I didn't even know what city I was in!"



      "Company."

        Love Rickie Lee Jones, especially Pirates. I think I lifted the chorus from "Lucky Guy" for a Germ a while back. Cool that these are on youtube now - I think when I looked then there were only live versions available.

            What I dig about Bill Evans is his interpretation of the core melody. A lot of players liked and like to play to the changes. Evans did that too... but he tended to really work the melody. He was known for his re-harmonization skill, and rightfully so, but I think the reason he was good at that, was because he always dug the relationship of the harmony to the core melody. He was so good at reinventing that relationship the writer created in the first place.

            Pederson? I first heard him when I was a young jazz bassist myself (16 maybe?). Probably during his Joe Pass and George Shearing days. I do remember being stopped in my tracks. A showoff who didn't really showoff. And when supporting, was a very good, stand behind, supporting musician. But he sure could show off...

              I saw them at around this time and they were just great. Yes, I know Peter looked silly, the music could justifiably be called pretentious and the lyrics (for the most part) even more so. Also in the debit column, the dissonance between the passionate playing and the fact that they look like they're sitting in the parlour enjoying high tea is, well, it's a little weird. But, but, BUT they had something really uplifting and exciting going on - especially to my 15-16 yr old ears. Odd thing is, watching it now, it still has that something. Thanks for posting

                Early Genesis were definitely an influence but just to make absolutely sure no-one mistakes me for a prog-rock only type, here's another later but much more important influence on me. I'm sure it's probably been posted before but hey, it's worth it. (Apologies for the advertisment and the fact that whoever posted this on YouTube doesn't know the name of the song)

                  Talk about your dangerous breaks...

                  I was looking for some vid examples from the 2012 Rick Holmstrom album, Cruel Sunrise, and found this among many clips. Rick is a long time veteran of the blues tour scene and most recently was on the Mavis Staples/Jeff Tweedy tour, along with Jeff Turmes and Stephen Hodges on drums, who fill those roles on the Cruel Sunrise album as well.

                  This isn't from that album but I couldn't resist it, since it focuses on one of the most fearsome surf breaks in all of SoCal.


                  On the subject of the Wedge, Dick Dale's song of that name came out in '63. Here's a live version...

                      If you ask me, surf guitar (esp. Dick Dale) was the pre-cursor to psychedelic music.

                        I had a feeling this would make a good bluegrass song, so I went video mining and found this.



                        and this...

                          Absolutely. A lot of the guys in psychedelic bands got their start playing surf. Even Jeff Beck was a Shadows fan, early on.

                            Lots of great tastemanship in this thread but this one is particularly awesome. Never heard this high quality show and I'm gonna sit here and watch the whole thing. The sung intro to Dancing With the Moonlit Knight sounds incredible.

                              Being part Scots I like the story behind this recording, part of an attempt to revive a dying language.



                              "The Braes o' Balquuhidder," a traditional Scottish song, sung by the Tannahill Weavers.



                              Being part Irish I also like the Irish derivation, "Wild Mountain Thyme." To me this is one of the most beautiful songs ever written.

                                "Tecumseh Valley," sung by Nanci Griffith & Arlo Guthrie. Written by Townes Van Zandt, I think this song is very evocative of "Wild Mountain Thyme," but with a nod to Stephen Foster.
