My early favorites were Frank Sinatra and Glenn Campbell…. Flash forward about 50 years, and I am still a big fan of regular listening sessions on my chosen format, vinyl records.
I want to highlight some of my favorite vinyl recordings that I own and have been checking out over the last week.
Some of these recordings I am very familiar with but recently bought on vinyl, others have been in my collection for years.
I have chosen 5 distinctly different musics to share below, by category or style, enjoy the links!
String quartets in general are really interesting things to listen to, as they provide a kind of laboratory for composers to work out ideas for strings that may find their way into orchestral works. Another one I recently bought the score for is Charles Ive’s String Quartet #1.
New Favorite Group:
Okay, now this music is really in heavy rotation at my house, the group is called Goat Rodeo and contains some familiar names to the classical, bluegrass, new grass and contemporary classical world. This amazing group is doing beautiful realizations of multi-styled compositions with seamless improvisations that touch on so many styles and some real virtuosity in its playing.
