Brunch


When I was 13, I was listening to Sarah Vaughan every morning before going to school. If I had just one CD, it would be this one. My father gave it to me because I couldn't stop listening to it and I have never stopped since then. Here is my favorite voice ever.
Is there a CD you have been listening to forever?

I probably don't, except that now my kids are listening to the songs I haven't played in 30 years, and so it feels like I've listened to those songs forever! Happy weekend!

I have always loved that song.

Hmm if i had just one, it would be The antonia carlos jobim songbook, anything bossa nova really. I don't listen to it everyday but when it plays, it feels like a good friend who has never left.

I grew up with my dad listening to Swedish Bo Kaspers Orchestra, and now I find myself listening more to it than him! We happened to see them live on a warm summer's evening a few years ago, which really brought the circle together wonderfully :) Seeing them again live on my own on another festival later, it was surely something missing; him.

Pour une raison que j'ignore, je ne me lasse pas de la tram sonore de "o brother where art thou"

hum... ça doit être parce que je suis pianiste, mais bizarrement, Beethoven m'a suivie depuis toujours... mes coups de révolte contre mes parents c'était lui (avec la 5eme symphonie)... même si ensuite il y a eu le brio (qui marchait très bien... je crois que mes parents tremblaient en entendant "branchez les guitares"). Il a aussi accompagné mes amours... quoi de plus beau qu'une sonate pour rêvasser... et sur le piano, j'ai pu exprimer et dépasser des moments plus complexes... Voilà, même si un peu loin de nous, c'est un artiste qui continue à me toucher!

Alors, moi, c'est Gershwin. J'adore, il me suffit d'écouter quelques notes pour être de bonne humeur. An American in Paris, Rhapsody in blue, Porgy and Bess que j'ai vu à Londres il y a peu. Ce qui me ravit, c'est que je ne connais pas tout encore !
Bon we, dear!

Yup, Yo-Yo Ma's unaccompanied Bach cello suite. The whole album has about 3 CDs and I probably played them all at least 100 times already.

Il y a une voix que je reconnais au premier souffle celle de Sting qui me suit ...et que je suis, meme si tu ne l'entendras pas d'ici qq jours...
Et puis la musique classique qui m'accompagne tous les jours, un peu , beaucoup...ca depend des jours
Je t'embrasse

Her voice is so rich and deep. I sometimes listen to her when I go to bed.

I find myself always go back to "Grace" by Jeff Buckley, and I even have it tattooed on my arm. Bless him.
