5.0 out of 5 stars lovely nostalgic piece., 12 Jun. 2015

I was very impressed by Toibin's beautiful flowing prose. I have not previously read any of his novels but will shortly correct this error.

3.0 out of 5 stars What's it all about Abdullah?, 13 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Song is My Story (Audio CD)
I don't know what Abdullah is doing these days. These pieces are so short . It'sas if he'd found a new tune and was trying it out for the first time. No development at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars ... but the sound is variable and it often sounds like Tracey needs a new piano, 27 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sims as always but the sound is variable and it often sounds like Tracey needs a new piano. In any any case I doubt he was the best choice to accompany Zoot. Nevertheless this did mark a milestone in Jazz in Britain.

5.0 out of 5 stars He swings like crazy and appears full of ideas, 27 Aug. 2014

This review is from: Let's (MP3 Download)
only heard once so far but immediately struck by Adam's sound--as full and rounded as that of Joe Temperly and that is some compliment .He swings like crazy and appears full of ideas. The trio with him is of the first order. My first encounter with this performer .It won't be the last.

1.0 out of 5 stars Small Budget Gem., 19 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I saw this film many years ago and loved it .The music is very good with a small time Dixieland band well portrayed and with notable appearances by Ella Fitzgerald and especially Peggy Lee who portrays a poor downtrodden singer extremely well. The villainous club bosses come over as true to much of what happened in that period. Proof that a film does not have to have a large budget to succeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars great session, 18 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: During This Time (Audio CD)
sadly one of Webster's last sessions. He plays well considering his failing healthbut much of his tender touch on ballads is gone and he sounds rather gruff most of the time. The Peterson Trio is fabulous. They swing like crazy and the technique of both Peterson and NHOP is truly astounding. I have not the drummer previously but he sounds as if he's been there forever. Wonderful stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another gem from Donna., 12 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoy virtually anything Donna Leon writes. Her style is so lucid and elegant and her settings and characters are superb. The family Brunetti is so delightfully portrayed that the mystery almost seems secondary. This particular plot was rather different from her usual puzzles and though not her best it was still a delight to read.
