The Bakerton Group and Underground Orchestra are new favorite groups: driving blues jazz, no vocals. Music for an interior landscape. Good writing music. Have other nominations? (My question is part of my unconfirmed belief that if I only find the right music, writing will be easy). My hero Michael Pollan says in Botany of Desire that he’s listening to the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I should try that.
