Have you heard a new recording?
Have you read an interesting article about music?

Let’s share what’s new in the music world with one another, perhaps learn about a new artist, or group, or new recording.
For example, I didn’t know Joan Baez had a new album out until @Halla told me.
She also told me about some incredible new musicians she had discovered.
I also enjoy reading about music. In today’s NYTimes I just read about the magnificence of the Paris Opera House.
Last week I read how the music and musicians that visited “Sesame Street” had a profound influence musically on many.

Have you any music news for us?

More I listen to the Mona Lisa Twins, more I fall in love with their music! This is a recent cover which they had released of David Bowie's Starman.

They are recording in Abbey road studios and are making their new album. It will be interesting to hear when it comes out!

Also, this may be old news, but I was astounded when I heard Jimi Hendrix's previously unreleased material from posthumously released albums in 2013 and 2018. It is astonishing to know how Jimi was such a prolific artist considering how good these unreleased songs were:

Come to think of it, I heard that still a lot of his material are in the vaults and waiting to be released!

Thank you.
