Wa Habibi

Kronos Quartet has been scratching an itch for me this winter:

To me, music is intimately tied to seasons. In the Autumn, it's folk music and smokey sounding jazz. As winter approaches, give me strings. Maybe a little piano. I want sincerity and intensity when there's snow on the ground, maybe punctuated by a little awe.

As much as I hate to admit it, this time of year. Mannheim Steamroller, it's just so absurdly dramatic..

Tis the season.

I'd heard of those guys before, but never heard them. Didn't know they were Classical--particularly cause you mentioned Ron Carter over at Intermission. But I guess that guy does it all (another great Detroiter!!).
