    Sticky: Catherine Ashcroft

    I have long considered the Uilleann Pipes to be like the pipe organ. Extreme manual dexterity and multitasking are a prerequisite to expressive playing. Upon hearing a performance it is difficult to...

    Yes, and 4K video was described as like looking through a window. Truth be told, we don't even see in 4K.

    I could not agree more, I enjoy listening to 1930s recordings if the music is great.

    Even so, I continue to be let down over how few music enthusiasts seek reproduction that attempts to follow as...

    This article from September 2019 in Esquire is depressing in many respects, not the least being the dreadful musical taste of the author when he was thirteen. Only one musician he cites as forgotten...

    A gorgeous Emily Remler set from 1978. Hard to believe she was already this great at twenty or twenty-one. It appears to be at a busy event but the sound is good and Jazz Guitar's most melodic player...

    Unusual Amplifier
