a list of artists and the CDs of theirs I have

List updated Saturday 27 January 2018


If you arrived here from a search engine reference and want to see my home page, it’s here.


= tracklist, album cover image, and basic release info; assume that I’m planning to add commentary to these but haven’t yet managed to do so (or possibly I just like the cover art and want to share it with you)

= all of the above plus some personal commentary, sometimes a full review; soon I’ll further clarify this with separate categories for general comments and for deeper analyses

Ella Fitzgerald

This is a non-listing, actually, to acknowledge a big gap in my musical library that doesn’t reflect my actual interest/appreciation. I love Ella’s voice, but aside from a track on a compilation album and probably onoe or two on vinyl I don’t have any of her work in my collection. In part that’s because it’s been so readily around me for so many years, and in part it’s a matter of budget availability and figuring out where to even start. Until those planets align, I’m content to listen to what I encounter. Hers is truly one of the most beautiful voices I’ve ever heard.
