    Tom Waits baffles me, I have to say. Some of his stuff is funny. i certainly think he's clever. His piano work is great, but his voice makes my eyes water!

    That's my emotional weather report on Tom Waits. Of course, YMMV.

    Got that ticket, in vinyl and CD. Amazing. Problem with Toccata and Fugue in C-minor, is the dog loves it and sings to all the organ bass notes. I have to send him outside to hear the full effect.

    You have a smart dog. Mine likes classical music and tubes. My next dog will like solid-state and hip-hop.

    Sounds utterly delightful. I love Karajan's conducting. I guess he had quite a tumultuous relationship with his orchestras.

    yes he did indeed. I had the pleasure of meeting him in the early 70's at our German college in Tokyo. At that time I was contemplating a career in classical music and he gave some pointers and very good advice!
    Alas, life does not always go the way one plans and I did not end up studying classical music, but that meeting with him has stayed with me all this time, a great man indeed!

    What a great story, and a great experience. I studied classical piano as a kid but preferred honky-tonk. von Karajan was my re-introduction to classical music, in university days. Having enjoyed Emerson, Lake & Palmer's "Pictures at an Exhibition," I was surprised that someone had done this recording even earlier, and left the record store with von Karajan conducting the Berlin (or was it Vienna?) Philharmonic's performance of the Ravel rendition, with Bolero on the "B'" side, on DG. That was in the early 1970s; been hooked ever since.

    Art Pepper's Over the Rainbow

    Post by deepee99 on Tue Aug 19, 2014 8:18 pm

    Good Lord!
    Just played "Over the Rainbow" on Disc 2 of "Art Pepper: Unreleased Art, Vol V, Stuttgart May 25, 1981."
    My M-125s put his sax right in the living room. Really. Hats off to the recording engineers who captured this and didn't digitally dumb it down. It's a great recording.
    The CD is cheap on Amazon or elsewhere; the listening sensation is, at my age, about as good as it gets. Even if you don't like jazz or sax, give this a try. It's not just Over the Rainbow, it's over the top. It pretty much settles the debate about transistors versus tubes.
