|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).
|Have some music to recommend? I can always use a few pointers. Use the comments link at the bottom of the page.

|Taking a Chance On Love / Jane Monheit
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
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
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
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.
