The lazy calm at the week's start. A few live performances included, but mainly music with an ear tilted toward string-driven things. (Visit homepage.)

irene, frederic chopin is just what the doctor ordered, thank you... (weekend sucked etc, this scherzo rocks!)
  Mon. 1/28/08 3:16pm Irene:

I'm with you there! A little Chopin helps bring us back to our senses.
  Mon. 1/28/08 3:32pm Sean Daily:

Third comment! Woo hoo!
  Mon. 1/28/08 3:43pm jonathan:

thanks for the monk!
  Mon. 1/28/08 3:48pm north guinea hills:

this john luther adams is really growing on me. and it has more 'soul' then john adams.... (safe white bread minimalist classical tripe) (ok, i like some john adams)
  Mon. 1/28/08 3:55pm Irene:

John Luther Adams is a different composer than John Adams. His pieces lean very ethreal, with loads of percussion, rise to a climax and fadeaway. Nice stuff!
  Mon. 1/28/08 3:57pm north guinea hills:

yeah, i know, john luther adams is a young up and coming composer, while john adams is "the most played living american composer".
  Mon. 1/28/08 4:13pm Andrew:

Yusef, bringing the cosmo-conscious soul jazz. Love it.
  Mon. 1/28/08 4:30pm Eugene:

Very nice song by Marianna Sadovska.. though I think it was in Polish, not Ukranian...still beautiful
  Mon. 1/28/08 4:33pm vitaliy, ukraine:

that's great. thank you
  Mon. 1/28/08 5:00pm north guinea hills:

i have a different version of "fine horseman" done as an a capella by some 70's folk female vocalist, and it's killing me i can't remember who!
  Mon. 1/28/08 5:05pm north guinea hills:

was it shelagh mcdonald?
  Mon. 1/28/08 8:35pm bruce mccall:

Who are these King Cretosote guys? I once wrote a voice-over for a fake industrial film for The National Lampoon Radio Hour and it was titled "King Creosote," which sounds too similar to be coincidental.
  Tue. 1/29/08 2:42pm Laura:

The Marco Benevento track is amazing. I plan on picking up some stuff by him as soon as possible.
  Tue. 2/5/08 5:08pm Alan Cynic:

Chuffed to be in amongst so much lovely music! As well as Lal's original version, there's a great version of 'Fine Horseman' by Anne Briggs.....and one by the Silly Sisters (June Tabor & Maddy Prior). Perhaps it's one of these that north guinea hills was recalling?
