Holst: The Planets - Susskind        (5 of 6 found this review helpful)
  Review by jdaniel@jps.net November 8, 2004

There's no denying that this is an excellent recording--very roomy with incredible bloom, impact, and yes, a satisfying organ contribution--*and* a mostly inspired, sometimes unique performance. The armies of "Mars" don't march by as anonymously as one might be used to--the occasional solos are ... more
Bob Dylan: Slow Train Coming        (4 of 4 found this review helpful)
  Review by JW November 7, 2004

The piano is the star here with tasteful drumming and Monty Budwig on bass almost in a subservient role. Monty can swing with the best of them and I would have liked to ... more

  Review by jdaniel@jps.net November 6, 2004

So soon to have complete Saint Saens Piano concerti on the Audite label with Anna Malikova on the piano accompanied by T. Sanderling and the WDR Orchestra, Koln. The 2nd and 4th concerti, (vol. 1), need no intro, but if you don't know the 3rd and esp. the 5th, they are gems. Some beautiful poetic ... more
