    Just ordered Strange Place for Snow by the Esbjorn Svensson Trio from Amazon. What an amazing group, and a tragic loss to the music world that Svensson had to die so young!

    I'm envious of you discovering this music. I remember my first time, sigh!

    @Fugue, I know what you mean; it's exactly as Simon and Garfunkel described it in one of their earlier songs about "measuring what you've lost". Once the discovery is made, we lose the thrill of discovering what has heretofore been unknown to us.
    p.s. Now that I'm thinking on it, I believe the lines are from The Dangling Conversation.

    I like that. I remember when I first got into EST, I had tickets to see them at Brecon Jazz festival and then came the news of his death. Their gig replacement was Neil Cowley Trio, I have to say that I ended up getting into them as well. Every cloud...

    The Bach Partitas for piano are simply gorgeous. I'm discovering more about these wonderful works every day, their movements based on the traditional dance suite (eg. Allemande) but the works are sublime.

    Just purchased "New Ancient Strings" which is a collaborative album between Ballake Sissoko and Toumani Diabate who play traditional African instruments. Seriously a superb recording, listening to it right now. The music has a natural eastern improvised feel, though I'm not positive that it's improvised. You really should at least look into this recording even if you decide you don't like it. Honestly I couldn't imagine someone not enjoying this stuff.
