Look on the right. Along with my new “Resources” section, I’ve revamped “Things I Like.” “Resources” gives you source material for some of the things I’ve talked about in this blog, starting with the age of the audience. “Things I Like” (which once in a while might be “Things I Don’t Like”) will give you snapshots of what I’m paying attention to — books, movies, music, ideas. First up: some music from Carmen McRae, sharp, vivid, and original.
Coming soon on “Resources”: a bibliography (with some excerpts) of books and scholarly papers on what classical music was like in centuries past.
