I occasionally think that I, like many other jazz fans / collectors, am half in love with novelty: the latest CD by one of my heroes / heroines, the concert or gig next Thursday. So as a corrective, I make it a point to go back to my CD shelves and immerse myself in some music I have loved.
Yesterday I took great pleasure from a serene, deep, swinging duet session by singer Petra Van Nuis and guitarist Andy Brown: their FAR AWAY PLACES. What good, sweet music! And since I had written about this disc, I will point you in that direction.
I found myself smiling all through their music. And I think my readers could enjoy the same reaction.
May your happiness increase.
