On the culture beat

Recent additions to my music, on recommendations from several fronts, two very different but equally stunning performances: Kurt Elling’s jazz singing on The Gate, Bryn Terfel singing Handel arias.

Meanwhile, iTunes has managed to call up, by random good fortune, Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones, Joan Jett, and Captain Beefheart (though I don’t think Opal is ready for Captain Beefheart yet). Plus several tracks from Bronski Beat’s Age of Consent.

And I unearthed a YouTube clip of the Opera Australia performance of “He is An Englishman” (from HMS Pinafore), for the enjoyment of the staff at the Three Seasons.
