Once Upon A Time

Back in the Golden Days of blogs and music sharing there was one blog in particular (RIP Sharing is Caring) which I have to thank for a series of most excellent recommendations. On it was posted consistently good music for the far too short duration of its existence. I will always remember you sharing is caring for the delight that you brought into my life in the form of The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble. It was a dark and stormy day when I first laid eyes on the cover art of Here Be Dragons and it changed my life (see cover below). My musical taste didn’t know what to do with itself and still doesn’t when I listen to this album and their more recent From The Stairwell. Both are beautiful, dark, mysterious, and wonderful to listen to at volume. I’m sorry to have just learnt that they split up last year. Damn, there goes one of my favourite bands. Console yourself with:
