|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).|

|Genius At Work / Conley Graves Trio|
Genius At Work is an album I noticed because of a sparkling
cover of the
from Laura, one of my favorite noir films. Listening to
a few other tracks I know, like
which I associate with the late Victor Borge during PBS pledge drives,
made me appreciate the artistry on display.
And a little investigation left me pretty much as ignorant as when I started. A check on Amazon revealed that this album was made in 1956 and never made the leap to CD. Which shows there may be something to this long tail business after all. Maybe online music sales will rescue all that recorded music the labels in their infinite wisdom (yes, that was sarcasm) didn't feel was worth their time. Nice to know that cheap storage may give us back our musical heritage.
