impressions and stuff

AJR – Living Room (2015)

Context - updating websites Going backwards through AJR's limited discography has proven extremely worthwhile.  Still prefer their new album.  You should listen to either immediately though.

Joe Pass – I Remember Charlie Parker (1979)

Context - double checking I was YouTube surfing at lunch (like I almost always do) when I came across a video of Walter Rodrigues Jr. playing a jazz guitar arrangement of "Isn't She Lovely".  I've seen a few of Walter's... Continue Reading →
