The Harry Potter World

It’s about 1:30am and I have just returned from seeing Harry Potter And The Goblet of Fire. I have to say that I enjoyed it immensely. I am such a sucker for movies, good or bad. Chris says that I’m a terrible judge of movies but I like to think that I’m easy to please. There are some movies I… Read more →

Yeah Canadians

Some colleagues and friends from Toronto, Canada just released their CD and I am really enjoying the clips I’ve heard on CdBaby. Go and check it out. You may like it, you may not… but I like it.

The night was filled with lots of musical surprises and adventure. One of the special parts about Andrew performing with Jacob Sacks and myself is that Andrew is not only a fantastic improviser on the saxophone… Read more →

Etudes

Last Saturday (Oct.29th), I went to Miller Theater to see pianist, Christopher Taylor perform Gyorgy Ligeti’s “The Complete Piano Etudes”. The etudes were in three books that have spanned over 25 years. Christopher Taylor began with Book 3 and 2 and closed with Book 1. I was completely blown away. I’ve know the Ligeti Etudes to be very difficult but… Read more →
