Re: Music Descriptions

Speaking of categorization...

I help out at a local CD store, Happy Trails Records, Corvallis' only hip
record store. I worked there for years, and now I help keeping the jazz,
ethnic, and electronic sections stocked with cool stuff. Anyway, I was
there the other day going through the new releases bulletin from Valley
Music, our main distributor. Evidently, they just picked up Jon Durant's
Alchemy Label, as I noticed most of their titles were lested as new
releases. What was interesting was how they were categorized: Gary Willis
was in jazz, Caryn Lin and Brian Gingrich in New Age, and Robby Aceto in
Rock/Pop. Just thought this was interesting...

gasoline. You'd simply take a cassette and put it in
your car, let it run. You'd have to have the proper
type of music. Like you take two sticks, put 'em
together, make fire. You take some notes and rub 'em
together - dum, dum, dum, dum - fire, cosmic fire."
