Long Tail Sessions, Vol. VII—Wednesday, October 25, 2017

Today’s mix features two musical greats who, unfortunately, passed away this week. Gorde Downe and Fats Domino were amazing artists that leave an incredible legacy! I’m also sharing one of the best covers I’ve ever heard, Joni Mitchell covering her own song Both Sides Now, decades after she released the original recording of the song. Both Sides Now was already one of my all time favorite tunes, and this rendition tops the original. Hope you enjoy!   About The Long Tail Sessions: Last winter, I traveled from LA to NYC on a Virgin America flight and loved that the in-flight entertainment featured musicians in alphabetical order. At first, I found it jarring to see Beethoven next to the Beatles, but then I thought “Of course they’re featured side-by-side, that’s how we enjoy music these days.” With this in mind, I’m pleased to present a weekly series of playlists dedicated to those of us who are not genre specific in our listening habits. Just as your listening habits have changed dramatically over the past 20 years, so have the ways musicians …

Long Tail Sessions, Vol. VI with Jazmín Morales—October 18, 2017.

Hi everyone. The playlist this week is super fun, featuring a variety of genres and styles. Special callout for Barber’s Summer Music, Op. 31, which takes me back to my summer festival days when I performed this a few times. I absolutely adore this piece and it was one of the first that effectively painted a scene to the backdrop of my life. To this day, I can’t listen to the piece without reminiscing about summer music festivals. For more information about the selections made by Jazmín Morales and details about her life, click this link to listen to the interview. I hope you enjoy this mix. Enjoy!

Long Tail Sessions, Vol. III–September 27, 2017

Welcome to the latest edition of the Long Tail Sessions. Today’s mix includes some of my favorite pieces, including First Impressions, which I performed with my sister a few years ago. Also included is a piece by Colin Hay from Men At Work who is one of my favorite singer-songwriters alive today. Finally, for some reason, I was in a Ravel mood this week so I included two of my favorite movements of his: The second movement of his Piano Concerto in G and the last movement of Mother Goose Suite, which is one of my all time favorite pieces of music. If you want to hear beauty, listen to 1:24 to the end of the movement (Don’t forget to turn it up to 11). What music should be added to next week’s mix? Please share your artists in the comment section below. …Happy Listening!
