Benny Green: The Place to Be



Blue Note CD

After a few no so good outcomes with quarter bin CDs this one turned out to be a real winner. Good Blue Note Jazz

A definite keeper.

I have had a lot of luck quieting down records like that by cleaning them with a steamer. I have done dozens and never warped one yet.

And if it does warp, it wasn't playable anyway.

An older version of Rodrigo's great Concierto de Aranjuez with Narciso Yepes on the much hyped London blue back lp.
Although the performance is nuanced and with great empathy for the piece, the copy is just too noisy to enjoy. 
Anyone need a classic performance.  It's a vinyl that looks much better than it plays.   :cry:
The Falla is pretty decent, but I like Alicia de Larrocha better.

Seal



Sire/Warner Bros CD

This one is kind of up and down. Some of the songs I like and others IO have no use for at all. But there is enough good stuff to justify keeping this one around.

Paul Schaffer: Coast to Coast



Capitol CD

I took a change on this one from the quarter bin because of Shaffer's association with The Blues Brothers, The Saturday Night Live Band and later David Letterman's Late Show Band.

But while I liked a lot of his other work, this album just did not do it for me musically. Too much Techno dance overtones for me.

That's the beauty of the quarter bin. I took a chance of something I really didn't know much about. I ended up not liking the music, so I can toss out the CD and did not pay much more than would have payed for an empty jewel case, which is what I have left.  8)

Just scored a pair of tickets for myself and my son to see Laurence Juber at the Iridium Club in Manhattan.

Juber spent two years as the Lead guitarist for Paul McCartney and Wings and since then has become one of the most accomplished fingerstyle gutaists around.

The video below starts a bit slow but once he gets into the song itself (about 30 seconds in), what he does with a single guitar is just amazing.

How come I've never heard of this guy before now?  :shock: It sounds like he can play pretty much anything.

Boston Pops tickets in the Shed range from 44 130.
The BSO depending on the event start at 34 and go up to 114.

Lawn seats are generally between 20 and 30 dollars.

Those prices are are steal considering what level of artistry you get there!  Yo-Yo Ma, Thibaudet, Fleming, AX, etc. I didn't know the prime seating was so close to the stage either.  I need to save money and plan for this very soon.
