blends

Ry Cooder has this ability, this incredible talent to blend with just about every genre of music there is today, and yesterday. His acoustic guitar theme to the film, The Long Riders, sounds like something from the 1930’s. Plenty to explore if you journey through his extensive body of work thus far. One song today, King of the Street, a song from his soundtrack for Trespass, just had me thinking how this guy can mix his sound so incredibly with rap and even writes a song that, with rock riffs, captures the atmosphere of the "street".
