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

The Best of Louis Armstrong
The Best of Louis Armstrong I was visiting my parents a few weeks back. They're at an age where there isn't much to talk about, or at least nothing we haven't been saying for decades. So I guess I should be grateful for cable TV, although even there the pickings were mighty slim. One surprise was an unscheduled concert on PBS, a live benefit from Lincoln Center for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. As you might expect, it was heavily oriented toward music from New Orleans, not that that's much of a limitation. There was a lot of jazz, and a lot of blues. And for a moment my father looked a good half a century and more younger, as he remembered his own trumpet playing days back in the mists of time. As the concert rolled on we even found a shared love in the music of Louis Armstrong. I think dad would like this album, not that he has any interest in modern technology like iPods or even CD players. But it's the music that matters, not how it gets played. And great music has a funny way of staying great.
