I love almost everything by James McMurtry, but Choctaw Bingo is the exception. I do find parts of it quite amusing though.

Today's selection was 'The Corrs' and letting Spotify work through their collection. Great voices.

Elsie Parker & The Poor People of Paris - "Elle se Souvient"

My wife likes to shop at a place called Cheryl's Herbs in Maplewood, a St. Louis suburb. For some reason, they have a rack of CDs for sale, and a while back I picked up this CD which is a French language jazz album performed by a local St. Louis group. I really like it. Kind of like an Edith Piaf album / bistro performance.

^^^ Amazing. I copied heartwood's post here: Re: Bogleheads community discussion - Coronavirus

It's Saturday night, which means for those in the Philadelphia area, this is live now:

The Blues Show with Johnny Meister on WXPN radio. Every Saturday night from 7 PM to midnight for as long as I can remember. You can also stream online.

Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis / Oundjian · Toronto Symphony Orchestra
Totally agree on both of these and have loved listening to them for years after taping them off classic radio. With the "Fantasia," what I still find most moving is the interplay between violin and viola, beginning with a viola solo (link below from 6 to about 13 minutes in). It also made me more appreciative of the viola and its deep, rich sound - it's much more than just a larger violin.

True story. About a decade ago I was on an “experience trip” to South Africa with about 40 couples from all across Canada. Ed Robertson, lead singer of the Barenaked Ladies was on the trip as part of the entertainment. When he introduced himself to the locals in the Cape Town area they had no clue who the Barenaked Ladies were or what songs they had released. But as soon as he mentioned Big Bang Theory they all knew who he was and what other BNL songs they knew.

For the smooth jazz fans, The Best of Fourplay by Fourplay. Nathan East on bass is amazing. According to Wikipedia, East is considered one of the most recorded bass players in the history of music.

I love all kinds of music from past decades but I also like to listen to new artists.

I just listened to a great, soulful vocalist named Allen Stone on Tiny Desk Concerts (NPR).

Here's a couple of samples:

:thumbsup Same here.

And I think her songwriting is underappreciated. She's quite remarkable. Though I don't think of it anymore, when I first saw her I couldn't help but think of Billie Holiday — Idaho's version.
