Editorial for January 2011
Published on January 1, 2011
Our January drawing-giveaway is for six pairs of the two recent Harmonie Ensemble New York CDs: Sketches of Spain, and Gershwin By Grofé. We have reviewed both innovative albums, and they represent two of the most successful historic blends of jazz and classical – performed and recorded to contemporary sonic standards. While the original Miiles Davis/Gil Evans collaboration recording is a classic, the new Harmonie Ensemble New York version is even better fidelity – you’ll hear details you may have missed before. Even if you are not a jazz fan you will enjoy these lovely recordings. All you need to do to be eligible is to register this month on our simple non-intrusive email-protected page. Go Here to Register on the site so that you may be one of the six lucky winners of the two CDs, who will be listed here after February 1st.
Here are the six winners of our previous drawing-giveaway – for the Dolby Surround reissue CDs in the RCA Red Seal Classic Film Score series: Casablanca & Gone With the Wind:
Lawrence Schulman, Mt. Desert, ME; Spencer Speier, Midway, UT; Michael Harvey, Rosemount, MN; Russell Low, San Francisco, CA; Rita Sonnleitner, Rio Rancho, NM; John Trygstad, Sandy, UT
January 2011 is our 142nd issue, and features improved navigation and enhanced appearance. We’re also publishing more and more disc reviews. All of them – usually well over 100! – are added throughout the month as they are written and received, usually on a daily basis. The most recent reviews appear at the top of each Section Index. The Home Page lists the five latest published reviews, the Section Index lists the past two months of reviews, the Archive goes back to June 1, 2005, and for all reviews by month prior to that you need to click on the Old Archive, which goes back to 2001. The Disc Index lists all past reviews.
