Jan 18, 2010 - Case21 on Preservation Hall Jazz Band
Nashville Show 1-16-10

We had a great time! The Nashville symphony was tremendous. It was the first time we had heard them. The conductor was fantastic. Ben Jaffe and the rest of the Preservation Hall Band are unbelievable. They had the entire hall dancing and clapping. The 2nd line was cool and the audience participation on stage was great. We were still dancing the next morning. We highly recommend this band and wish we could see them again soon.

Jul 19, 2007 - eiodland on Björk
My feeble words can't describe her...

Simply put, she is one of the most creative, talented, and passionate musicians today. Being a musician myself, she has been an incredible influence and inspiration to me. Her unique and somewhat experimental music draws from a very wide variety of sources, and is often extremely clever and fascinating.
