    I picked up an album of Ives' songs at a closing Borders for just a few bucks. I'm still not sure I get Ives.

    Been listening to a pile of my 60's, 70's & 80's vinyl as I just bought a 40 year old Sonab amplifier to go with my equally old Sonab record deck.
    Surprised just how nice it sounds, not audiophile quality but very pleasant. On the lookout for a pair of Sonab speakers to go with the other bits.

    Back to Youtube now and



    Vanessa Mae seems very underrated, possibly because of the music style that she tends to prefer but her purely classical pieces are extremely good.
    Damned beautiful too.

    Not sure what prompted this.

    It used to be requested every single day on the radio that my mother had playing constantly.

    "Music While You Work" I believe it was.
    Used to hate it with a passion, along with:

    This is a bit retro too.
    Found a few of my dad's records from the 50s & 60s.
    This was one of them, Baron & Baroness Van Pallandt.

    Finnish party folk metal. I don't understand a word they're singing, but the rhythm an melody are infectuous as can be. My new favourites.

    Actually watching her "Dream With Me In Concert" DVD.

    Since finding her on YouTube I have spent far too many hours watching/listening to her, she is just phenomenal. Wonderful when she was only ten years old she is becoming a very poised and graceful young woman with the potential to develop in any direction she chooses.

    Watched her in the Robert Redford film "The Company You Keep" and she showed a lot of promise as an actress if she chose to follow that path.

    Still Jackie Evancho, who has become something of an obsession.
    Managed to acquire most of her material - will never manage her "Prelude To A Dream" CD as it is in very limited supple having been withdrawn when she was 10, due to unexpected improvements in her singing. It is still viable and a precious record of her beginnings. Now changes hands for around $1,000.
    Her new CD, "Awakening" exceeds all expectations and the expectations were high, based on her previous achievements.

    There is as yet not a great deal on YouTube from "Awakening" but there is a taster of the PBS concert, due to air Nov 29th. IIRC



    Listening to "Awakening" now along with some material not generally available

    She is just the most incredible person! Not just as a singer but her character is just as compelling.

    Andras Schiff is great for Bach -- when I was like 12 or 13 he got me out of the "copy Gould's performances" idea and showed me another way.

    As of three minutes ago, something I hadn't heard for years, namely Chick Corea's *Now He Sings, Now He Sobs* album. I remember I loaded it onto my 1GB mini (or micro) or whatever SD card in my phone -- I was into that tune "Steps" (well, the one in C minor). And this AM walking to get some beer was like "fahq! tunes would be good!" scroll down past Billy Preston, Booker T, and like hey Chick! I haven't heard the album since I was like 20 years old.

    I noted 3:25 off track 5 from Chick's *Now He Sings,...* album. But even just off "Matrix" from the same album.

    That is some crazy shit. I've been hearing this since whenever, but sometimes it appears that Chick, not only having crazy-good technique, could throw down. I've been hearing this album since I got hip, ca age eighteen, and this inspires me to go back to basics, do some technical stuff.

    Have been doing a few things half-assedly, mostly trying to remember (without consulting the scores/transcriptions) Bud's "Un Poco Loco" (the montuno is a killer to keep going and improvise over -- I just decided to do it like I do math....repeatedly, until it sinks in) and, yesterday, plinking around with the "friska" from Liszt's Hungarian 2.

    It's good, on the latter, to just simplify a bit, (and reimagine the work in the enharmonic Db-minor, rather than C#-minor, because, after all, we are not guitar players). Yeah, I think it's just kind of an improvisational show-off piece -- fidelity to the score is not important, but overall effect is.

    this. Literally just now, catching up with Jim Alfredson and his new tribute album to Big John Patton.

    That fucking blew me away just noticing the guitar kid -- what is he like still in HS? And playing like a boss? And copping Grant Green's thing, just for the authenticity? Shit. I'm always a fan of Jim on Hammond organ, but he's closer to my own age, so I can understand the time he spent learning the stuff. I can't understand that kid on guitar, though.

    Oh yeah, a buddy hipped me to Alicia De Laroccha doing the Notturna from Grieg's Op. 54 and his piano sonata. Nice. I'd forgotten about her. I was never a Grieg man, but apparently I was wrong.

    I was previously rather dismissive of Lena Katena/Yulia Volkova/tAtU but with some more recent listenings have become to appreciate them more.
