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

The Frankfurt Opera Concert '75 / Baden Powell Trio
I was a Boy Scout. Not a very good one, I grant. But enough of one to stop when I saw the name Baden Powell on this album. Turns out this Baden Powell was a Brazilian guitarist named for his grandfather, whose own father thought highly enough of the Scouts to name his son after their founder. Which explains how a Brazilian ended up with such an English name. And none of which matters, except for the serendipity of my encountering a truly amazing talent. Baden Powell's music sounds to me like Spanish guitar, although I suspect an aficionado would identify all kinds of differences. But no matter; his playing here, both as part of his trio and on its own, is energetic and thrilling. The Frankfurt Opera Concert '75
