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

It Just Happens That Way / Mindi Abair
It Just Happens That Way Some albums I discover on the Music Store. Some are Amazon recommendations. (I'd feel mildly guilty about using them for ideas and then buying them somewhere else if it weren't for all the books and videos I've gotten through them.) This was one I first noticed in Tower Records. I'll admit that the cover got my attention. But of course, what else is there to catch your notice in a record store? (And why am I calling it a record store? Heck, pretty soon we'll have generations who won't know what a record is!)

But I digress. Although a pretty blonde on the cover wasn't enough to get me to buy the CD, it did make me curious enough to sample Ms. Abair's playing on the iTMS. And I liked it; the songs are livelier than the usual sax recordings, with a modern pop sensibility that doesn't fall into the elevator music trap of Light Jazz, that evil twin of New Age that made such a deadly combination on radio stations across the country in the late 80s. Or was New Age the evil twin? I always mix those two up.
