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

Taking a Chance On Love / Jane Monheit
Taking a Chance On Love Speaking of piano bars, as I did in my last entry, I've been noticing increasing interest in the form, with young performers doing old standards. Some get noticed for their unusual voices or styles (Norah Jones comes to mind), while others stand out by not standing out. Jane Monheit falls into the latter category; she takes songs you know well and gives them new life by reminding you of why those songs have stayed in the mind so long. I've been hearing Over The Rainbow since I was a baby, back in the days when both parts of The Wizard of Oz were in black and white. And yet somehow this version makes an old song new again.

In a world of increasing noise, to be subtle is to take the greater risk. And at this, Ms. Monheit succeeds admirably.
