My Music

I love music. I love how it revives me, moves me, uplifts and surprises me. Life without music is no life at all. I love soca and reggae, I can live without Celine Dion and most of the Top 40 but there are times that I long to hear something other. Not being in possession of a credit card or a budget sufficiently large enough to purchase C.D's, or any idea of what I wanted, I had, until recently, a bit of a dilemma. How was I to give my consciousness a little shift, for those times in the studio, when ideas are brewing, or when I want to drown out the sound of the cartoons from someone else's T.V., or when the heated, rum enhanced, discussion,

"Watch, le' me tell ya sumthin'"

flies in from the road, at the very moment when the artwork was balancing on a tightrope of completion, or what about when I just feel to sit and sip on a glass of wine and gaze across the valley?
Little did I know that help was at hand.

Free Albums Galore is an excellent blog that brings you succinct, interesting album reviews, drawing from a truly eclectic mix. I really like the format and the download is free, simple and safe, and doesn't require me to know one end of an ipod or an MP3 player, from the other.
Today, I chose;

which you can read about and download here.

At the Lisztonian website, you can enjoy

"free classical piano music from popular composers and works".

Once again, this is a secure site, safe and easy to use but the interesting thing about this site is the pianist. Jeremiah Jones is hoping to buy his own Steinway. I hope this mention will excuse my lack of financial contribution, but for anyone else who feels the need for a personal pianist, in their own home, I can truly recommend Jeremiah's recordings.


  1. Thank you for mentioning my site and for your kind comments about my music! It always thrills me to know that my music is being enjoyed. Financial contributions are not at all necessary (although appreciated). I'm just glad you have benefited from my recordings.

    By the way, you have gorgeous photos on your blog.

  2. My pleasure Jeremiah, and I hope all who read this enjoy the benefit of your recordings too.

  3. If I didn't write, I would want to be a musician...well, that's what I dream.

    The ISP I'm with is so crummy, I can't afford DSL or Broadband right now, so I ask family overseas to send me music. They send trendy clothes.

  4. Ha ha, know just what you mean GG, after the hurricanes, we really needed a roof and food. My family sent me sexy underwear, not that we didn't appreciate it, it was just not waterproof or very nutricious.


thanks for visiting, it is lovely to see you here.
