I have been listening to one CD today, or CDr to be precise. It is one of the clutch of new archive releases put out by Cor Fuhler a few weeks back on his Conundrom label. This one is titled Mill and is a 1997 recording of an improvisation in a church by Fuhler alongside Misha Mendelberg abd Michiel Scheen. The three of them play assorted organs, a harmonium, a hammond organ, a choir organ and a church organ.

You know, my biggest fear for writing this daily was of having something to write about each day, having enough new music to talk about. It seems that at least for the time being there is no danger of that situation happening, as music just keeps arriving here. Thanks to everyone that sends me their […]
