    a classic forum thread if there ever was one.
    for the forseeable future I'll be into these specific corners.

    *Music for consorts of Viols (Lawes, et al.)
    *The FitzWilliam Virginal Book (Hogwood's my prefered)
    *Vielles et Cornemuses of Central France ( this one- http://www.amazon.ca/Vielles-Et-Corn.../dp/B000024UAT) its a classic!!!
    *Progressive Celtic Contemporary from the late 1980s/ early 1990''s (Capercaillie, Clannad, maybe Blowzabella, for ex....)
    *Donovan's Sunshine Superman, Mellow Yellow & HurdyGurdy Man LP's (confessional complete )
    *Select vintage solo recordings of Uilleann pipers (Clancy, Rowsome, McAloon, Ennis, for a start)

    as the seasons change there will be some music of English Waites, Early Polyphony (yeah, ok I actually *do* enjoy listening to organum...once in a while...), maybe some Scandanavian folk, and/or Bjork...who knows!?!

    Dude. It's 81 degrees out.

    (FWIW, I did spend about 20 years of my life in Virginia and New York, so I paid my dues.)

    The Piano Guys.

    I started listening to them a couple years ago and promptly forgot about them until yesterday.

    The videos are generally of a piano player and cellist, although there are quite a few guests and the music is sometimes mixed with other instruments. Their music is quite eclectic, but tends toward the pop end of the scale. Their videos are extremely high quality and generally quite amusing.

    I spent about 45 minutes watching, last night. Recommended.

    Yup, I was listening to and reposting their videos just yesterday. Good performance value.

    The Owls

    The amusing thing is that I was listening to this on a playlist. There's another group called "Owls" that's an "experimental emo indie band." There's a rather significant difference in the two bands' style ....

    This evening: SaxophoneEnsemble Mi-Bemol from Japan playing the 2nd movement from Dvorak's Symphony #9 ("From the New World"). It's not perfect, but the colors are very nice. (It's one of my favorite pieces, so I have biases.)

    I am listening to Santa Fe and the Fat City Horns (Vegas ensemble) and they are so tight. That bari sax is sick! Lovin' it.

    So I quickly zoomed in to have a close look at the sax to see if it was a Couesnon he was holding. Disappointed to see that it wasn't, as far as I could tell.

    Then zoomed back out again only to see the front of the album "Demonstrating a Selmer Saxophone". Doh

    Still - great find!

    He played with a wide vibrato at times. It was an interesting recording.

    Tonight I'm enjoying Miles Davis - Kind of Blue

    This is the reissue from about a decade ago on CD (actually listening to a FLAC rip of the CD). Not the most recent reissue which according to some has less noise but also doesn't sound as good. I see no reason to "upgrade" to the newer release.

    While I'm told that it's more a brass thing, I've been listening to Respighi. You might know his Pines of Rome from the "flying whales" sequence in Fantasia 2000. There's another composition that I recently listened to that was rather more lyrical, but I've forgotten the name. EDIT: Concerto Gregoriano.

    I've also been listening to some of the vocal compositions by Samuel Barber. Here's his Agnus Dei. I love the harmony.

    Speaking of harmony, I found Heyr himna smiður (sung by Árstíðir -- and I'm hoping that vBulletin doesn't freak out with all those special characters) last night through Reddit's Frission sub. It's sort-of a "flash mob" recording.

    Which reminds me that if you haven't seen the 2010 video of a flash mob singing the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel's Messiah, do yourself a favor and check it out.

    Luv me a good flash mob. Did you see where the photographer got over 45 million views of that video on his/her YouTube page? Very cool.

    I've been fascinated by this new find, Jon Gomm, who plays guitar as both a string and percussion instrument. Lovely stuff:

    A kinda rare recording of the Shekomeko Shuffle with Artie Shaw. There are so many big bands in Seattle, but very few do much clarinet work.
