While I’m unable to read, or watch movies or television, I’m by necessity listening to music and audiobooks. The iPod has come in handy, especially for listening to the many podcasts I have stored up, including Mystery Theater, News from Lake Wobegon, A Way With Words, The Classic Tales Podcast and many others including a good amount of Old Time Radio.
The music album that’s been living in the player for the last few days is exceptionally enjoyable.
The Fred Hersch Trio has done a lot of nice albums, but I’m finding the variety and skill of playing of Hersch and his trio on the 2-CD Alive at the Vanguard especially pleasing.
The group also has a new one out, Floating, which is winging it’s way to me even as I type this.
