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 Feeling's Back / Chuck Mangione
The Feeling's Back Chuck Mangione? Is he still alive?

You reach a certain age and start to worry every time somebody from your younger days bites the big one. So it's nice to know that at least a few of my elders are both breathing and able to do more than act as spokesmodels for incontinence products. I was introduced to Chuck Mangione (and later to his brother Gap) by a college friend and later roommate. The college was (and still is, if all those alumni letters are any indication) in Rochester. And perhaps in response to us self-impressed New Yawkers, Rochesterians liked to show off their hometown successes. People like Chuck, who somehow made the flugelhorn cool with a hit called Feels So Good. And who stopped recording for fifteen years, which may excuse my surprise at discovering that he's both alive and back at work. And none the worse for the hiatus, if the tracks on offer are any indication. Unless... do you suppose... maybe my taste has deteriorated in the interim. Naaahhh!
