I'm surprised no one's mentioned Grateful Dead. The rare times I listen to music while I play with my trees, some of Jerry Garcias acoustics work pretty well. Them and maybe some Almand Bros.
I listen to nature most of the time.

I'll second the Coltrane and Scofield, and throw in a li'l Miles Davis along with it. Maybe sprinkle some Herbie Hancock and the Headhunters here and there too.

With my luck with bonsai, I believe Grateful Dead would be a poor choice in music! Shocked

I play music with some of my trees around but, not directly to them. I do however dress them up in the stereotypical opera attire and belt out Pavaratti for all the world to hear.

The music I listen to really depends on the job in hand, for example serious contemplation of a styling maybe some Joy Division but a batch of re-potting could be some thrash metal!!!

I think not John, that was truly awful! I had to switch it off because it was making me cringe. I also suspect it was largely a con, unless those leaves he was twanging were disguised plectrums.

All three of my computers froze up fairly close to the beginning of the video when I tried to play it. Perhaps they did so in protest if Kev's take is correct.

All this listening to nature stuff reminds me of something I heard during a woodland fair at Westonbirt Arboretum where the "instrument" was an Aeolian Harp - an instrument played by the action of wind. Despite the obvious tee-hee factor at the possible applications of this, the "music" is actually quite relaxing and I have found myself listening to the couple of CDs I have while working on trees.

Im a bit split on music really. I played in a band earlier, we used to play stuff from bands like the Doors, Pink floyd, King crimson, Jethro tull, porcupine tree etc etc. Then we quit and started an Irish folk music group. I changed from bass to violin. Now im not in a band and I mostly listen to Black metall and Avant garde, prog metall.. Bands like Bloodbath and Darkthrone. Also listening alott to Opeth and Arcturus.
But I like everything I consider good musicianship. Could be everything from Enya, Pavarotti, Elton John to The oak ridge boys which is a group with 4 singers singing gospel.
As long as people make the music themselves and they can sing or play an instrument very good. But the way its not to brag of it.
I usually had music on when I was reading, sleeping or working out. But when im working on my trees, complete silence is the way for me.

Not seen him Tony. Enjoy.

I love blues as well as rock and left out a recent favourite of mine, Joe Bonamassa. He's a very talented blues and rock guitarist. If you haven't heard him, check out his website. http://jbonamassa.com/media/hear-joes-music/ Lots of song samples to try.

I'm also really looking forward to seeing/hearing the new supergroup Black Country Communion that has been formed by Bonamassa, Glenn Hughes (Black Sabbath, Deep Purple), Jason Bonham (Led Zeppelin, Foreigner), and Derek Sherinian (Alice Cooper, Billy Idol, Dream Theater). Their album Black Country is released in Europe on 20th September.

Never listened to him while entertaining the bonsai... much too dangerous, but while riding the motorcycle I usually had a tape in of Uncle Ted (Nugent that is) called 'Spirit of the Wild'. I unique compilation of rock and roll meets the great white hunter! (First time I met him I was in kilt. His comment as he reached to shake my hand was "Brother, you gotta lose the skirt! Laughing )
