Trying to define my taste.

    Those songs have something in common, and I can't describe what exactly.
    They perfectly fit my taste and I can listen to them for hours.
    Does anyone see a trend ?
    I fail finding it.

    "Zona Mona" by the Flecktones.
    "Freeport jam" by Dream Theater/John Myung.
    Anything from the Jan Garbarek Group.
    "Dona Nobis Pacem" by Michael Manring.

    I have a hard time defining my taste as well. When people ask me what "kind" of music I listen to, I just tell them my favorite musicians.

    I have never heard Manring's "Dona" (hmmm... rhymes with "Zona Mona"...) but, when I was in my school quoir for a week before being transferred, we had to learn Dona Nobis Pacem (The Grandest Piece*). It was terribly boring and repetitive. Hopefully (and, most probably), Manring spun into something genius, as he usually does.

    *could be Peace, I never saw it written. My guess is that pacem is Latin for peace (e.g. pacify), so that's probably it.

    Well I don't know anything from the jam garberek group but of the other 3 I would say that what ties them together is the bassists.

    Victor wooten, needs no explanation

    John myung, a very very capable and awesome bassist, leading the way in progressive music.

    Michael Manring, quite possibly isn't from this planet.

    yeah, music made by bass players almost solely for other bass players.

    Actually, it means "grant us peace."

    :D Good thing I paid attention in quoir! I should stop acting like I'm knowledgable about... anything. :D Note my asterisk-footnote, though. I got it... well, still wrong, but I tried.
