Tuesday records

so close, but i'm not going to make it through today....

Bit of Sweden - Busk Margit Johnsson with Gunnar Hahn, Pianist: an interesting find and not at all what I expected from the cover, which was cheesy. so, Soprano and Piano performing twelve folk songs, mostly from the early 19th century. so a lot like German lieder. She sounds pleasant enough and the piano never overpowers her,but is sometimes hard to hear. though that may just be the recording.

The Riddle - Dave Brubeck Quartet: um, I wasn't really paying attention to this one and Brubeck's stuff is kinda complex. it features Bill Smith on the clarinet, though. so I heard lots o' clarinet. w007!
