The award-winning photographer chooses his favourite music of all time

The award-winning photographer chooses his favourite music of all time




Kind of Blue: Miles Davis
Is there a more distinctive sound in jazz? Perfect.


Weather Report: Heavy Weather
I first heard Weather Report while working at the Los Angeles Olympics. I ran into the nearest huge Tower Records store and bought every tape they had and played them until they wore out on my Walkman. Sublime.


Van Morrison: Hard Nose the Highway 1973
A beautiful lazy, poetic, bluesy album... so much better than anything he has produced in the last 20 years. Just bought a new CD of it for Christmas.


Johnny Cash American IV
The album he made before he died when he was very ill. It made me cry and helped me choose a few songs for my own funeral. Powerful stuff.


Blind Faith
The first of the supergroups, I was a huge Cream fan and when Stevie Windwood started singing with Eric Clapton I was in heaven. Shame it never lasted.
