What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

Riders on the Storm: The Doors Concerto / Kennedy, Coleman, Prague Symphony
I love stuff like this. I shouldn't, I suppose. But I do; I can't help it.

Take some classic hits by The Doors, arrange them for a full orchestra and a solo violinist and try your best to end up with something more interesting than elevator music. Sometimes the original melodies are easy to recognize, as with Hello, I Love You. And sometimes they're just part of the mix, as in the title track and People Are Strange.

My classical friends would turn up their noses at the misuse of all that talent. But if you aren't offended by such sacrilege, if you enjoy hearing an orchestra play something you recognize, you too might find this Concerto up your alley. Or in your elevator. Whatever.
