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

Sonnet / Martin Lass
I discovered Martin Lass on my second trip to Australia. Just before dropping a friend at Sydney Airport for her flight home, we stopped at Darling Harbour in hopes of finding a CD of folk songs for her collection. (I'd found my copy a couple of days earlier.) Mr. Lass was performing in the shopping centre, doing a combination of classical and contemporary pieces on his violin, with keyboard and percussion as accompaniment. I bought a copy of his String Sensations CD on the spot and have it in regular rotation on my iPod.

Flash forward ten years. That CD is sadly out of print (although why it can't be revived for the electronic marketplace I have no clue). But I noticed a couple of others in the iTMS. Sonnet is Mr. Lass's own compositions of a mostly New Agey flavor. (Or should that be flavour?) If you like the sound of a skillful and energetic violin and don't cringe at the thought of New Age, give it a listen.
