- Spem In Alium. Thomas Tallis
- 4 Cast: Unpredictable. Trimpin and Kronos Quartet.
- Pharoah's Dance. Miles Davis
Glass: And Part 2 isn't even my favorite part.
Phair: This song is even better than I remembered. Creative, honest, vulnerable and it rocks albeit in a remedial way. I need to listen to the entire album again to remember why I was so disappointed with her work after this recording.
Tallis: From the Kronos Quartet album that also has George Crumb.
Trimpin: It's been a long week and I can't remember if I mentioned I saw the Trimpin movie last weekend (er, yes I did). Clip here. Anyway, I want to highlight that the Kronos Quartet play a key role in establishing a narrative in the documentary, leading to a performance of 4 Cast: Unpredictable. I don't think I've seen an audience of non-contemporary-music-obsessives enjoy unorthodox music so much as I did at the Red Vic movie theatre last weekend.
Davis: I have nothing particularly new to say about Bitches Brew but I will repeat how good improvised bass clarinet can sound and also link to this photo of Miles Davis playing tenor saxophone.
