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

All Night Wrong / Allan Holdsworth
All Night Wrong Round about 250 posts ago I mentioned how a friend and I used to attend the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas, back when you had to be in the industry to get in. (I wasn't, and neither was he. But he used to be, which was good enough.) Anyway, one of the benefits of CES back then was that the CD was brand new, and something that was mostly appreciated by audiophiles. A few small music labels would exhibit at the show, or to be more precise, they'd set up shops to sell their discs at much more popular prices than you'd find in record stores, both then and now. Needless to say, we'd buy most anything we could lay our hands on, which is how I got the bulk of my early orchestral and jazz collection. It didn't much matter what the music was, you see, as long as we felt we were getting a deal.

Listening to a little of All Night Wrong I was taken back to that time, and to my accidental and not quite yet appreciated exposure to the world of jazz. Eventually I'd learn to appreciate it, even to seek it out on occasion. Not for a while, though. Although I do think I'd have enjoyed this one even before my taste developed. Besides, I never could resist a play on words.
