Ken writes: Dot bought a couple of new CD’s the other day. Herbie Hancock’s River, which is a tribute to Joni Mitchell. It is a collection of covers and adaptions of her songs done in collaboration with among others Norah Jones, Leonard Cohen and Tina Turner. I’ve only listened to it once so far, but I suspect I’ll like it. It’s very complex and interesting.
Dot and I both instantly took to the other CD Let it Die by Feist. Neither of us had heard of her before, but dot chanced across an interview somewhere and bought the CD out of interest. It’s very good. I would say it’s slightly jazz, slightly country, and very interesting. Worth a listen, anyway.
