    Jean Rondeau -- Vertigo Harpsichordist Rondeau explores the operatic / stage music of Jean-Philippe Rameau and Pancrace Royer. ... Beautiful.
  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    The pleasure's mine. ... Trust you'v recovered from the tour and all's well.
  5. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Bach -- Dynastie (family concertos, JS, WF, CPE, JC) Jean Rondeau Rondeau's "moments of metronomic freedom," as one reviewer put it, infuse these concertos by JS Bach and sons with excitement, personality and ... fun. Harpsichord out front with violin, viola, cello, contrabass and bassoon. I'd say if there's a recording that could turn someone on to the harpsichord who otherwise might be a bit leery of the instrument, this fits the bill. The only slight criticism I might have is that there are times where Rondeau gets overpowered by the other instruments, but that's just the nature of the beast, I suppose.

    Jeff Crompton Trio -- "Magic Word" Sits right in that free bop sweet spot. Excellent. Jeffcrom and his bandmates hit a home run. Review here.
  8. If you have a chance to catch Jeff Crompton's trio Saturday night in Atlanta, I would recommend it.

    See link for quick review.

     

  9. Jeff Crompton Trio Southeastern Tour

    Went to Jeff's St. Petersburg concert the other night. ... I think I had a big old dumb grin on my face the entire time as this waterfall of free bop-ish music washed over me. Incredible energy from a really talented trio and Jeff is no joke on the sax / clarinet. Man can bring it. Almost all original tunes with a little Ornette thrown in. ... Scooped up a copy of Jeff's latest CD with this band, "Magic Word," which I'd heartily recommend. Not only is the music rewarding but you'll be supporting one (three) of the hard-working musicians who make it happen. If you have a chance to catch these guys in Atlanta on Saturday night (Hutch?), do it. Thanks for the music, Jeff ...

  12. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Seems Mikeweil and I are in a similar groove. This is a rerelease of a recording from '75, remastered for SACD. Couperin's Premier Suite and Deuxieme Suite, written toward the end of his life. Sumptuous.

    Geminiani -- Concerti Grossi Op. 3, Nos 5&6; Op 7 Nos 1-6 Capella Istropolitana, Jaroslav Krecek, cond. Got this together with the first volume, which includes Op 2 and Nos. 1-4 of Op 3, but without paying attention started on the back nine.

    Following Mikeweil on this one. Only had a chance to listen to the first of two discs, but overall just lovely melodies, peaceful tempos. Excellent tonic for what ails you.
