Joe Hartmann's picture

SONNY ROLLINS: Our Man in Jazz (Classic Records 45rpm, a real pain because of constantly having to change records); WAGNER: The Ring (Boulez on LP); BEETHOVEN: String Quartets (both the Emerson and Guarneri Quartets). The recent purchase of a new phono cartridge has me re exploring my collection with some wonderful surprises. Somehow CD's are never relistened to over and over again, with the exception of Sony's Horwitz reissue. I have two CD Players ( Proceed and CAL Icon).

RADIOHEAD: Kid A (visceral,aquatic,schizophrenic); BELLE & SEBASTIAN: The Boy With The Arab Strap (mellow and sleepy, like Alka-Seltzer Plus cold medicine); STEVE TIBBETTS: Bye Bye Safe Journey (really cool eclectic mix of instruments, I love it!).
