Ah, my second customer :D.

Thanks for creating a thread. Talking about music will be one of the most important things we do here at ASR Forum.

These are the albums I have from Olafur Arnalds including the Chopin Project.

Another recent purchase is from a delightful Jazz signer from Korea, Youn Sun Nah. Here is her bio from Roon Player:

The album is Same Girl.

The title track My Favorite Things is to die for as is the fidelity of recording.

This week, I'm listening to music that I'm learning to play. I've got them all in a convenient playlist so I can play along and get my phrasing and tempo right. But of course the band has transposed many of them to different keys, just to make things difficult. Some of the songs...

Because the Night, Rebel Rebel, Superstition, Pretzel Logic, Driven to Tears, Gimme Some Lovin', I'm a Man...

Hi Tom. As an ex Californian this always brings back fond memories. The cover is excellent as you say. It is almost the same as Beach Boys.
