I've been listening to what few classical CDs I have. It seems to put my son to sleep. Lots of Yo-Yo Ma, some Mozart, and a bunch of Bach. Time to get more CDs. Anyone have any recommendations that are specifically fairly calm? Strings are good, brass are kind of bad. I tried some Copland for a little bit last night, but that was definitely too bombastic for him--at least as far as sleeping.

Try some Jacques Loussier Trio. Jazz interpretations of well-known classical pieces.

Here's an iTunes Store link for demos.

For the ultimate sleep-inducer, you could always go with Satie.

Well Ken, for that sort of stuff I tend to think of Debussy and Ravel(or Satie)and could have a bunch of suggestions, but to put little Elliott out for about ten hours straight you need Yolanda and her harp . Gorgeous.

In another area, I trust that you shelled out $4-$5 for that terrific Beethoven 9th by Wand that I suggested a few months ago.

I got the Flight of the Conchords EP, so I'm listening to that, as well as the b-side on CSS's "Alala" single.

Flight of the Conchords is hilarious! Some of the shows on HBO have been pretty mediocre, but these guys are as good at pigeonholing every pop music subgenre as Tenacious D.

If anyone is a jazz fan, there is a local musician here in Kansas City named Angela Hagenbach who will blow you away. Sadly, her recordings don't do her voice much justice. She must be seen live at one of the local jazz clubs.

Just took delivery of 50ft of Canare 4S11 from bluejeanscable.com - time to start terminating!

Ha ha, no, I was just thinking of Arnold Schwarzenegger putting the ends on cables. You know, terminating them, so... yeah, you'll be back.

Someone sent me Matt Sharp and Maya Rudolph's cover of Tegan and Sara's "Not Tonight." I love that song, and it's a decent cover. It's nice hearing Maya Rudolph doing straight singing. I love the range she's shown on SNL, and she makes it hilarious (I'd say she's the strongest female cast member currently, and has been for a while), but yeah, it's nice to hear her just sing, too. I didn't even know she was a part of The Rentals before (Matt Sharp's band post-Weezer). I can't find her listed on the albums, but according to a bio, it sounds like she was involved on the first album. Anyway, I'm happy to see she's not sitting on any of her talent. I've always liked her. I hope she has a big breakout at some point, besides just being great on SNL.
