Audio book from local libary, "Devils" by Fyodor Dostoevesky. Fascinating history of culture, society, etc. in mid-to late 19th century Russian. I thought it would be too heavy to listen to but can't seem to put it down. Local library has a nice selection of audio books to check out and listen to on a free app on my phone.

Lately I've been immersed with listening to new age piano compositions especially the works of Kevin Kern, David Nevue and Robin Spielberg. It's so soothing and calming, even my dog is so relaxed. :happy

Cool! I don't listen to a lot of folk music but this duo is excellent; such nice vocals. Would be nice to hear in a small venue as well.

Sometimes I "make myself" listen to other genres or groups I don't know to expand my musical palette, which is usually quite rewarding.

I'm currently listening to the many (many many many) transcriptions of the Bach Chaconne from BWV 1004. I'm tinkering around with the Busoni transcription on the piano.

If you had to choose only one to listen to I'd recommend either of the Busoni piano transcriptions or the original version played by Heifetz.

Original Violin:
Jascha Hiefetz: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgLG93uGTN0
Hillary Hahn takes it much slower, not my favorite interpretation but Hahn is probably the best living violinist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgLG93uGTN0

Busoni Transcription for Piano:
Michelangeli 1948 recording: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6-v-ZtCAFw Extremely precise and plays like a demon (as with most virtuoso ABM recordings). There's also a spectacular live 1955 version but there's lots of coughing and I find it distracting.
Helene Grimaud: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sw9DlMNnpPM Played as if it were originally written in the late 19th early 20th century as opposed to 1710s.

Brahms left hand only transcription
Zimmerman: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91KBiPlit-Y

Transcribed for harpsichord:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SzxzLtwK-eo

Arrangement for Saxophone Octet
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qn5YZLJ0QBw

Arrangement for Brass
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=veqbs-PC9YY

Arrangement for full Orchestra
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WpzfAd5gXk

Edit:
Also for the hilariously awesome transcription for Marimba. I had no idea you could be this good at the Marimba.

Colorado Public Radio classical station is good although I wish they played more baroque and chamber music.

I've been listening to a lot of music from Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker. These three also formed a "super group" called Boygenius between their solo careers.

Music is similar to investing. If you think you start to know "something" or "everything" you are wrong.

There are some fantastic YouTube concerts from @ Brooklyn Steel/Pitchfork Live for these three performers.

"Freeway Jam" by Jeff Beck.

I like Beck's music, but only in small doses. Not something I listen to for hours.

Jeff Beck Appearing Live this Week at Ronnie Scott's If there is any doubt that Beck is the greatest living Rock guitarist, this live performance recorded and videoed back in 2008 will erase it. I was never a fan of Beck until I stumbled across it on late night TV a few years ago. Since then, I've attended a few live performances and, incredibly, he keeps getting better at 70+ years of age. Here is a youtube link to one of the numbers called "Big Block"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdX6ly6ftUM

BTW, his backup band on this video is top notch. Tal Wilkenfeld on Bass, Jason Rebello, Keyboards and the amazing Vinnie Colaiuta on Drums.
Happy to see so many Beck fans on BHs. For a very different side of Jeff, one that I enjoy almost as much as the one referenced above, try Jeff and the incomparable Imelda May https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjdkjGwGJQc from the album Rock 'n' Roll Party (Honoring Les Paul)
