And more-azzolla…

Finished listening to the Astor Piazzolla 10 CD box set, then went back, put the CDs out of order, and listened to the whole thing again. The lyricism he gets out of a bandoneon is simply incredible, of course, but the second time through, I listened more to the other players, some of whom are listed on the back of the CDs, some not. Lots of swooping, sharp violins, strangely reverbed guitars, very sparse percussion that veers, like all the pieces here, from primal to ultra-sophisticated in the space of a few bars. If I didn’t have to get on with the rest of these CDs, I might listen again!

Please order my new book! It’s cheap! And if enough people pre-order, it might get released sooner than late December…

Also, I have started a net label: fubar bundy presents. Please go have some free music, though we’ve only one release up yet.
