Such a gorgeous album.

I'm not sure what you mean by that. What is a "triangle inequality"?

Right. Glad we cleared that up, then. I have no further questions.

i.e. the measure of the two combined must be less than or equal to the sum of the value each on their own

or better to listen to either one by themselves

Ö music is not only an `entertainmentí, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.    RVW, 1948

There are many Kletzmer bands but there are only a few that are sufficiently good to overcome the repetitivness of the music.
The Budapest kleztmer band is one that I really enjoy

Earlier this morning:



It seems when I put aside my critical ear and my general disdain for the Ďpopí Genesis, this isnít a bad album at all. I guess one has to just accept that Genesis had moved on from itís progressive rock roots when listening to their post-Wind & Wuthering output.

Hi Mirror Image:)

Have you heard the new live Hackett release?  It's sitting in my cart. . .  ;)

Now playing ~



This three-disc set combines a second-set segment from a June 1974 show in Providence, Rhode Island, with the complete second set of a Boston Garden appearance recorded two nights later. The band was clearly in a playful mood that week, adding new twists to old songs and coming up with a number of dynamite jams out of thin air. Bassist Phil Lesh is particularly frisky and fertile on the Providence material. The collection begins with a distinctive "China Cat Sunflower" taken at an airier, slower groove than usual and bookended by interesting improvisational ideas. There's an exhilarating 15-minute "Spanish Jam" before they eventually encore with "Eyes of the World." The Boston show's second set opens with "Sugar Magnolia" and for the first time ever its "Sunshine Daydream" coda is broken off from its body and reattached at set's end. Also of note is a lovely "To Lay Me Down" and the far-ranging 28-minute jam that occurs after "Weather Report Suite," a ride unlike any other in Dead history. Throughout both shows, Jerry Garcia's guitar leads are as supple and fluid as they've ever been. Though it lacks the cohesiveness of one complete show, this 12th volume marks a true highpoint of the Dick's Picks series. --Marc Greilsamer

A nice twofer retrospective of the master of the Bossa Nova, Gaetano Veloso

Hiya, HIPster! I have not heard the new Hackett. What do you think of it? Worth getting?

Edit: Iíll be honest and say Iím getting tired of Hackett retreading old ground whenever a proper Genesis reunion would be much more special, IMHO. But since this wonít happen, Iíll just stick with the Genesis albums. ;) Make no mistake, Iím a huge fan of Hackettís solo career.

I think it looks splendid:



It certainly would be amazing for a full reunion tour, or even a residency, focusing on all of the eras and lineups.  Doesn't seem to be happening any time soon, however. . .

Yeah, I just wish Hackett would get rid of Nad Sylvan. Iím not particularly keen on his voice.
