Ha... no one buys Leonard due to his voice, that is for sure. Big Grin

Perfect Monday morning.

I have one must meeting today, then off for the week.

I'm looking forward to some serious time with music.

I'll probably wait until Friday to get that out, but it is getting to be that time of year.
Swing into Christmas

one of my favorite Christmas records, jazz/swing covers of Christmas songs performed by Grover Washington, Jr., Terence Blanchard, Marcus Roberts, David Sanchez, Tramaine Hawkins, Wynton Marsalis. Live performance recording.

Saw them at the Whiskey a Go Go shortly after this "album" came out.
The Christmas mix I made for my sister and her now husband when they got married in late December a couple years ago - all my favorite songs by the artists that did them best IMO.

Not sure if you are referring to just the song or the live album by the same name. The live set was an important step into my becoming a lifelong fan of hard rock. I believe I was 9 when it came out, and begged my older brother to play it often.

Thanks for the heads up. Will watch for sure. Are they playing or just being interviewed?

Right now

I think they are just being interviewed. Letterman is receiving the Kennedy Center Honors this year along with Zepplin, Dustin Hoffman, and couple of others. He is interviewing his fellow honorees over the next couple of weeks...

Sviatoslav Richter

I've just ordered the newer Andras Schiff recording as well. But I am really very fond of the Richter.

Pretty lame interview I thought. You don't get the sense that letterman knows much about music.
JPJ was funny though

I got the sense that he knew the band by name only.

Robert Plant looks terrible.

I could never get past Geddy Lee's voice, grating to my ears though their musicianship is good
Loved what I saw of the concert. Missed some great stuff from what I understand.

I hear Nirvana+Paul rocked. Also missed the Boss. Stones were fine, but (the remaining) the Who were fantastic. Not my favorite music, but Billy Joel also did well.
Jack Johnson, soundtrack to curious George
Lynard skynard, street survivors
Vivaldi various concertos
Madonna GHV2

Perfect way to spend a morning!
Staying home tonight, to watch the Stones concert. Setting up a table in the den for dinner. Rack of lamb, Rhone wine in the glass, and the Stones!
The Stones concert was the best concert I've ever seen. I'll spare you the superlatives, but I've never seen anything this good before.

High praise. Was this a recent concert?

I have thought they have been mere shadows of themselves for a very longtime now.
It was live on Pay Per View last night at 9PM EST. They were great! Truly great. Watched on the big screen TV with the sound turned up a bit, but not deafening. The best $45 I can remember spending.
Led Zep - Celebration Day

Despite the fact that Plant had a hard time keeping up on a few songs, it's pretty good.

He lives in Austin now and his wife, Patty Griffin who's a great performer in her own right, had a gig at The Continental Club last Saturday. It was billed as "Patty Griffin and her driver" which got folks thinking - sure enough it was him. I wasn't able to go but heard some clips and he sounded pretty damn good.

Same here. Haven't checked out the DVD, but the CD is pretty solid. Starts stronger than it ends for sure.

+1. I hate to quibble over my taste in music vs. Yours but they were terrible at the 12.12.12 concert. I saw them live in the mid-90s, and they were great, but they on the down slope then

+2. If I want to see a concert from when the Stones were on their game and still relevant...Ladies & Gentlemen: The Rolling Stones.

I saw them in 78, 81 and 89 and none of those shows were very good.

I used to have a record of Willie Nelson Christmas songs that I liked a lot. Also seemed an odd combo, but it was nice. I never knew it was really pronounced Jaingle Bells....

Had "Room to Move" and "California" playing on the shuffle in the car on the way to the market today. Jon Mark's alto sax on "California" still gives me shivers...... Smokey comes to mind. "Room to Move" is the song that inspired me to buy my first harp. Bow

In the ranking of living poets, Cohen holds a very high place. About the limit of my ability is being able to recognize him.

Based on the CD (admittedly, 5 years ago was the concert) they sound fantastic. They obviously don't need the money, because a tour would generate the most $ ever, IMO
