Joshua Bell, the lost living room tapes.

Joshua is a fine artist who's gone down the Yo-Yo Ma path of crossover blah. Granted he's played just about everything in the cannon but this was a silly choice to make. The release sould have at least come out late November or December to go with holiday rush. The arraingments scream kitch to the Nth degree. I would have been nicer but please, someone must pay Sting whatever amount he asks not to attempt to sing real music any more - and certainly not Dowland! Didn't he learn his lesson the last time? Most of the rest are OK for this sort of drivel with the Spektor being probablly the best of the bunch. It's the sort of thing that will go well with your mocha low-fat pumpkin biscuit and your grande bravissio apple turkey holliday latte. With shardes of nutmeg of course.

At Home with Friends

To my mind there is no question that as both a fiddler and an interpreter of classical music Mr. Bell is a virtuoso.

Both as an artist and as a person he is continually growing and willing to take risks--reference the "DC Metro Concert" which you can glimpse fragments of on You Tube.

I love (most of) the works of Beethoven, Brahms, Bach, et al. I also think Gershwin, Piazzolla, Lennon, and McCartney had a lot to say, so it's a treat when someone like Bell and a few 'friends' choose to interpret the work of more recent composers.

Listen to iTunes, do the 30 second sampler thing and pick a favorite or new song and invest 99 cents.

In short, make up your own mind instead of reading the incessant scribbles of wannabe reviewers.

Quite a variety of styles here

Not your typical Classical album at all. Good variety of styles with many guest artists including Ravi Shankar.
