RE: what are you hearing?

Kitty: No, unfortunately I didn't see Josh on Allie McBeal...but I have
seen him twice now on Good Morning America...and apparently without
knowing who he was at the last Olympics...he performed during the
closing ceremonies, I think. I listen to his CD at least once or twice a
week and still I am completely enraptured at how such a young person can
have such a voice...

Melody,<br>Did you catch some of Josh's earlier appearances on Allie
McBeal? I was stunned at how beautiful his voice was.<br>Kitty<br>> Jim:
As an apparent fellow lover of classical music, I would invite you<br>>
to check out a young man by the name of Josh Groban...24 years old
with<br>> the voice of an angel...nearly brings me to tears listening to
his<br>> beatiful music. He does some contemporary Broadway stuff,too
and brings<br>> a great deal to that genre as well. Am hoping Santa will
be kind to me<br>> with a gift of Josh Groban's new CD under the tree
this year. re:<br>> Handel's Messiah--a few years ago I was lucky enough
to find a 12 volume<br>> record album set of the entirety of this
masterpiece at a consignment<br>> store, in very good condition...it's
not difficult to find a CD or<br>> something with selected works from
the Messiah, but to find the whole<br>> thing...ahhh!!! And for less
than $5...what a victory!<br>> <br>> <br>> <br>> Melody, IA (Z 5/4)<br>>

It's odd, Daryl, but I can't find the Yo Yo Ma set [two CDs, Bach,<br>>
<br>Goldberg Variations]; my wife must have it in her vehicle. It's
a<br>> <br>terrific recording. A real head piece. I remember going to a
party<br>> once <br>when it was played followed by Rostopovich's
recording--and we<br>> debated <br>the merits of each or both on into
the night.<br><br>The<br>> good news is that, when looking for Ma's
recording, I found my <br>Jerry<br>> Garcia-David Grisman CD [that's
what it's called: "Jerry<br>> <br>Garcia/David Grisman"]. This is
another one that's worth running<br>> down. <br>If you don't know
Grisman, he may be the best mandolin picker<br>> that ever <br>lived.
He's one of those blue grass

guys, like Peter Rowan<br>> [remember <br>"The Free Mexican Airforce"?],
that seem to be all over<br>> the place--and <br>comfortable about
it.<br><br>About this time of year:<br>> It has always been a problem
for me. Most <br>"christmas" music is<br>> soppy-sappy crap orchestrated
to make you feel <br>festive and mindless<br>> in the aisles at
Wal-Mart. And by now [December 8] <br>it has grown<br>> truly tiresome.
There used to be a classical music station <br>DJ in<br>> Washington who
played christmas music in July and not in October,<br>> <br>November,
December, and [in case you missed it] January. And it has<br>>
<br>always torqued me that the greedy co-opted Handel's "Messiah"
to<br>> sell <br>give-away sentimentality among the pine boughs and
snowflakes<br>> [and <br>amused me, of course, because Handel would have
done it himself<br>> if it <br>had occurred to him].<br><br>You asked if
I have a favorite.<br>> Yes. My all time favorite of all time <br>is the
Julliard String Quartet<br>> of the late-1970s early-1980s playing
<br>almost anything--a Beethoven<br>> quartet preferred. Robert Mann and
Richard <br>Carliss on violin, Samuel<br>> Rhodes on viola, and [blush,
I don't <br>remember] on cello. Mann was to<br>> the Strad what Grisman
is to the <br>mandolin. Fantastic. And, if you're<br>> in the audience,
genuinely heart <br>stopping.<br><br><br><br>On<br>> Thursday, December
