The Good Stuff

There are simply two kinds of music, good music and the other kind ... the only yardstick by which the result should be judged is simply that of how it sounds. If it sounds good it's successful; if it doesn't it has failed. --  Duke Ellington

This purpose of this thread is to provide a place to post outstanding examples of the Good Music.

On the Old Kentucky Shore // Joan Osborne & Ricky Skaggs

My CD has a different cover art, but it is the same album.


Florence Price's symphonies. I know I've mentioned her name before on this website, but right now I'm on Idagio, streaming performances of her First and Third Symphonies and truly lovin' 'em.  She's an African-American composer who was active during the first half of the 20th Century. Aaron Copland-esque. Tuneful. Big. Truly excellent sound quality.  If DG recordings always sounded this spacious, dynamic and sweet I'd be the happiest guy on the planet.

I have the CD with her Symphonies 1 & 3.  

Yannick Nezet-Seguin / Philadelphia Orchestra.

Have not played it yet.  Will tomorrow.  Thanks for the review.

DG :  There was a time when I thought DG and Karajan was all you needed in Classical Music. 😞
