Solo piano [sound recording] / Gonzales

Title of Item Being Reviewed: (Required): 
Solo piano [sound recording] / Gonzales
Review: (Required): 

A surprising disc coming from this South American MC. Sounding something like an
expert mixing of Keith Jarrett and Erik Satie (in his more imaginative stylings),
Gonzales has made a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable album of piano sketches that
are at turns elegiac, ecstatic, comatose. The sound quality of the recording leaves
something to be desired (expect a small amount of background noise and damage if you
turn it up) but it also adds its fair share of charm to the recording, coming across
as a work of private, brilliant impulse. Odd, but a CD to play again and
again.

How art has influenced what we consider beautiful in the world, and how an
appreciation of art can enhance your travels and your life.  “Although we are
inundated with advice on where to travel, few people seem to talk about why we
should go and how we can become more fulfilled by doing so.”—from the jacket

The Well-tuned piano in The magenta lights

Title of Item Being Reviewed: (Required): 
The Well-tuned piano in The magenta lights
Review: (Required): 

A complete 6-hour performance of La Monte Young's magnum opus for piano. Not as
good a representation as is found on the out of print Gramavision 5CD box, which was
stolen from us and which this version replaces, but still exquisitely beautiful
piano that just doesn't end. Also contains video of the performance. If you like,
you can do as I did and put it on on a Sunday afternoon playing through the stereo,
leaving the TV off, then you have the option of surprising anyone who doesn't know
that you didn't just happen to turn on the TV to a piano performance that perfectly
matches what's playing through the stereo...

Where we live: photographs of America from the Berman collection
Review: (Required): 

edited by Judith Keller and Anne Lacoste; with essays by Kenneth A. Breisch,
Bruce Wagner and Colin Westerbeck. These photographs are great, so realistic and
familiar.  Simple and complex at the same time.  I’m sorry I missed this exhibition
that was at the Getty, but at least we have this great catalog!

She’s a great graphic/graffiti/figurative/musical artist, now deceased.  If you
like her, also check out Barry McGee, OsGemeos, Bill Daniel. Then look for the names
they give you -- and your journey begins.
