  8. Starbucks and music

    In Tel-Aviv the prices are similar to DC... Well, in 2002-2003 4USD = 20NIS, nowadays it's only 15NIS...
  9. Starbucks and music

    When we stayed in DC I used to sit at Starbucks a lot. It was the best place to prepare my lessons with comfortable couches, good music and no hassle from waiters etc. The one thing I didn't get was the coffee. It wasn't that good (too burnt and acid for my taste), HUGE jugs, sometimes with all kinda creams toppings etc. and the price was ridiculous - I remember it was 3.5-4$ for a cappuccino(!) Here in Israel the espresso bar culture is very strong with a strong preference to Italian style coffee. Prices are similar to Italy (around 1 Euro for an espresso, 2 euros for cappuccino). After all this, no one was really surprised that Starbucks Israel folded after a year or two. No one misses it here.

  14. Artists you know well but have never really liked

    I've never warmed up to Hubbard as well (his recordings with Tina Brooks is an exception). I really tried but I still don't really like Joe Lovano.
  15. Great US tenor players who DIDN'T record for Blue Note
