OT: What music is everyone listening to? V2.0

Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

very difficult and obscure Prokofiev there. Have you heard any Tiffany Poon? She can play some equally difficult Liszt and make it sound effortless.


While I'm primarily a jazz player, I'm big on Chopin and can play some of the easier pieces. The cool thing about jazz is that if you know music/chords, you can just "play" or jam over a simple chart. You should practice b/c it makes you better and adds to your toolbox, but the classical you absolutely have to practice. My mom dropped off this simple Mazurka for me last week that I've been toying around with. It's in concert C so it's relatively easy:

That's so funny, there's a Chopin lp by Michelangeli that I got from my mom which I treasure. Side A is all mazurkas, B side has a performance of the G minor ballad which is one of the most gorgeous, epic, tragic things I have ever heard.

Some tasty Liszt from Tiffany Poon.

Been on a Low kick lately.


I debated whether to post the official video or not, since I think the visuals are a bit distracting and it's best experienced with eyes closed.

I've had "as long as your love me" by the Backstreet Boys stuck in my head since Sunday afternoon. Honestly, I don't mind.
