    Nats -

    If you'd like to post album art, right click on the jpg (image) you want to post, click on properties, copy the address (URL). On the forum post, paste the URL in your post, highlight URL, click the image (Img), click the submit button.

    Without creating the image it would look like this: images/smilies/icon_mrgreen.gif

    The image would appear as: [​IMG]

    One of the best recordings, performances, and new arrangements of classic tunes I have ever heard. Three thumbs up!

    I saw a commercial on TV for this and immediately thought you would probably get it.

    I don't know, I'll have to see if there is somewhere I can sample a few tunes.

    Picked this up yesterday at a Salvation Army store near me, that has a great and everchanging cd selection. By no means a critical listening disc, but they remain true to ABBA, only making the songs "dancier".

    I didn't realize that BW's Gershwin album was out. If I'm not mistaken, aren't there are few unfinished Gershwin tunes on it that the family's estate authorized Wilson to finish composing? That's be kinda cool to hear.

    As for me... I'm currently listening to Jeff Trott's album "Dig Up The Astroturf".

    I only picked it up because it was available on DVD-Audio, so I knew nothing about him when I bought the disc. But apparently he has penned some Sheryl Crow songs, played on World Party's "Goodbye Jumbo", toured as Tears For Fears guitarist, and produced other artists including Stevie Nicks. (Got all that info from AMG, btw.)

    It's not a bad sounding disc. The music is laid back and somewhat trippy, though not overly so. Surround mix is OK with a front focus but also stuff in the back, too.

    A*Teens are good, to be sure! But I like S-Club 7 even better.

    Pat Metheny Trio Live 2 CD Set

    Pat Metheny Trio

    2000 Warner Bros. Records
    Amazon.com

    Pat Metheny's brought a string of trios to bear on his music, none of them lasting as a touring band long enough to bring a session like Trio Live to life. As on Trio 99-00, Metheny's bandstand has Larry Grenadier and Bill Stewart beside him, and they burn from start to finish. Taking up 13 tunes, Metheny shows off every nuance of his talents. Stewart invokes Elvin Jones, with a lead-footed focus on tempo and a hammering power. Grenadier provides calm force, keeping time with steely firmness. Metheny is all over the map, laying back to open the session, throwing off torrents of modulated guitar synth on a 19-minute "Question and Answer" and then diving laconically into one of jazz's least laconic pieces, John Coltrane's "Giant Steps." He's granite thick on the rocking "Faith Healer" and gently harplike on "Into the Dream," grooving steadily in between. All the while, the audience is hyped and involved. The trio has chemistry like Keith Jarrett's standards project, with each member providing texture and finishing each other's musical thoughts telepathically. This you can hear on familiar tunes, as well as on 35 minutes of new material rounding out the second disc. --Andrew Bartlett

    Track Listing:
    Disc 1:
    1. Bright Size Life
    2. Question and Answer
    3. Giant Steps
    4. Into The Dream
    5. So May It Secretly Begin
    6. The Bat
    7. All The Things You Are


    Disc 2:
    1. James
    2. Unity Village
    3. Soul Cowboy
    4. Night Turns Into Day
    5. Faith Healer
    6. Counting Texas

    I'm a big Shirley Horn fan also, but I don't have that one. :eek: I'll have to send a note to my used music dealer!

    Thanks for posting it Pauly,

    I've ordered both that Wilson/Gershwin and the Metheny/Trio (which you can get for like $6 from amazon!)...

    Dennie, I have 15 - yes fifteen - Shirley Horn albums. :shock: Amazon used is your friend.

    Funny you should say that. My neighbor (4 blocks away) is a "used music" dealer and has an Amazon Storefront.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/shops/stor...tplaceID=ATVPDKIKX0DER&sellerID=AXH769XQMJLPW

    I get updated emails twice a week, I place an order and he delivers it. It is a great relationship! I save a lot of money buying used and in bulk. I have over 3000 albums, over 2000 CD's and a few dozen 8 tracks and cassettes, but I don't listen to those. They came in record collections that I picked up.

    So YES, Amazon used is my Friend, Literaly! :mrgreen:
