Duke Ellington and John Coltrane – In a Sentimental Mood

2 Dec ’09

That has been a while since I wrote about some music here. Sickness and clients were I cannot use my usual software to listen to music prevented that.

And I don’t listen to music enough at home, maybe because there is no real setup that works at home. But we are working on that. We realised that we don’t have a radio in the kitchen (where we spend quite some time). There is the surround system in the livingroom where we can play radio, cd’s, …. But that sound doesn’t reach the kitchen. So we looked at buying a “micro-system” with a radio-cd combo and 2 small speakers. If you want one that produces some OK sound, you’ll have to put down around 2000,- Sek. iPod/iPhone connector built in this is.

But then again, we use the interweb to listen to music these days. I listen to Studio Brussel, Linda has some swedish channels. And then we have Spotify. The software we use the most. Why ? Because they have it all. So…. how do we solve this problem then ? Well…. I’ll try to find an old portable PC at work that I can relieve them off for a few coins, and we buy some speakers. I have my eyes on the Creative GigaWorks T40 Series II. The other problem we solve with this setup is that we have a PC in the kitchen to look up some recipes. Which we also did frequently when we had the iMac in the kitchen. I’ll update you when this happens.

So, what have I been listening to lately ? No CD really stands out actually from last week. But there is one track I found and have been playing almost non-stop it feels.

Enjoy !
