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

Douce Ambiance / Django Reinhardt
Django Reinhardt: what a great name. It's the kind of name that stays with you once you've heard it. Sadly, that's all that stuck with me. I knew I'd heard the name before, even knew that it was in a musical context. But I couldn't have told you what, or when, or where. The name was all I had.

Probably shouldn't have admitted that. No problem, I can always delete it later. Or not; part of the appeal of this blog for me is that we can explore music together. And Reinhardt was clearly one of the greats; a between-the-wars jazz guitarist who turned the tragedy of a fire-mangled left hand into new styles of playing. His old recordings will sound rough to modern ears, but the brilliance and the energy will still shine through.
