Interesting, and fairly logical, given what we all do. I assume that the
Krantz/Stern CD was also listed in Jazz, and my CD was in New Age?
BTW, did anyone catch the review of my new CD in Guitar Magazine (in the
Ray cover issue, July I think)? The reviewer, Jon Chappell, had an
hook: "Progressively Textural." OK, sounds about right.
