    Even if you couldn't tolerate it, I'm glad you did try to watch it.
    Well it is indeed different but just not my cup of tea.

    Watched it again . The brain was much more accepting of it. Definitely enjoyed it for freshness, modernity, fact that I could understand some of the words , and overall fun take.

    Sometimes, that's what it takes. The first time I heard Anne Bisson's Blue Note, I did not like it, but the more I listened, the better I did.

    I've heard some records Gary puts on and go "What the...?" But upon 2nd and 3rd listen, the brain accepts it better and then I start finding the magic in it.

    Really never thought of it before.

    This performance is amazing, and deserves sharing - Gyorgy Ligeti's Mysteries of the Macabre sung by Barbara Hannigan; London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sir Simon Rattle.

    Well, I for one enjoyed this although I can't say I enjoyed the music as much as I enjoyed the theatrics. Opera's answer to rap, perhaps? In any event, I love to be introduced to weird music stuff, or just about anything Gary thinks is interesting.

    Found a great CD from a new Jazz Vocalist Sarah Partridge the other day. My sister, Carolyn Koh had kickstarted her CD which reimagines another one of my favourite singers - Janis Ian. The sound, music and musicianship are all excellent. We received the CD a week ago, and I predict that it's going to be in my regular play list and demo list for a long time.

    Her Kickstarter page is very interesting as she listed a breakdown of what it costs to fund the CD. The CD launch party and concert is on May 11th. Unfortunately, it's clear across the country in New York. That's a great deal if you are there as $25 gets you the concert AND the CD. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/bright-...ts-32195371222

    You can soon buy her CDs and FLAC downloads on Bandcamp: https://sarahpartridge.bandcamp.com/music
