    For the Sinatra Fans here at the Shave Den...

    Classic Sinatra II


    This is a great follow up to the original "Classic Sinatra" CD.

    And, why did I get Classic ll? Because it has the song "High Hopes" on it. I've been trying to get a Sinatra CD with this song on it for a long time, and now I've got it.

    You can see the complete track listing here:

    The more I play this album, the more I like.

    For the last two days, it has been Brahms. I've been working my way through the recordings of his works in my classical library. Some of the highlights that I have really enjoyed thus far are his first piano quartet (Walter Trampler and the Beaux Arts Trio - I love the fourth movement) and his Piano Trio No. 1 (Suk, Katchen, Starker - the first movement continues to be one of my absolute favorite pieces of classical music), and his Double Concerto (Oistrakh, Rostropovich, Szell, Cleveland Orchestra - Rostropovich and Szell are high up in my book).

    Just discovered the music of Charlie Patton. What a brilliant musician, even more impressive when you consider he recorded his work almost a decade before Robert Johnson.

    Charlie or Charley Patton (its been spelled both ways) is some great stuff! I have his Screamin' and Hollerin' the Blues: The Worlds of Charley Patton collection. While I do like me some mean electric blues, there is something soothing to listening to the old Delta Blues masters. My 17yo son listens to some stuff that is questionable in taste (to me at least), but he loves Charley and his contemporaries.

    It's great stuff. Given that the recording is just a man and his guitar, it really is quite sophisticated music. The crudeness of the recordings adds to their charm IMHO.
