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

Beth Waters / Beth Waters
I don't envy whoever it is who has to categorize music in Apple's store. Talk about your no win situation! Granting that a lot of music fits neatly into some predefined and easy to market slot, there's plenty of interesting material that defies simple definitions. Even better, to my way of thinking at any rate, are artists who take from many different genres and create something new and unexpected.

Beth Waters does a little of that on this, her second album. Despite an iTMS classification of Rock, Beth Waters the album belongs more to the world of piano bars than to concert halls. And that's a good thing. This is personal music performed with care and grace, the kind of performance that stays in your head after the music itself has faded. Kind of like a White Castle hamburger, only without so much heartburn.
