As I figure out how to use this blog, I hope to share my thoughts and interests as they relate to music.



  • Beethoven
    • Symphony No. 7, Movement 2, Allegretto
      • This is one of my favorite musical selections.  It’s simple but effective in creating a very moving work.
  • Mozart
    • Requiem
      • I know he didn’t complete himself, but I am fond of this work and I enjoy listening to it.
  • Brahms
  • Shostakovich
    • Symphony No. 5
      • How can you not love the opening of the fourth movement?  That, and the bass drum solo at the end!

  • Buddy Rich
  • Oscar Peterson
    • I got interested in Oscar Peterson thanks to John Riley’s method book, The Art of Bop Drumming.  If you’re looking for some “classy” jazz that is easy on the unitiated ears, then you can’t go wrong.
  • Art Pepper
  • Chick Corea

  • New England Dancing Masters


  • Sting
  • Paul Simon
