I love music.

I write about the music I like and have purchased for the benefit of better understanding it and sharing my preferences with others.

A Delicious Bite

Impatience has me searching of late for single tracks that have maximum punch. I look for tracks to listen to that have that "delicious bite," like a refreshing cool breeze, a warm touch, or that quality that ensures a calm, wide grin to appear across your face. One of my more favorite ones comes from Monica Huggett's recording of the Biber Mystery Sonatas, first disc, to be precise. First track, in fact. Towards the end, the continuo strikes this nice lusty, sweet chord, and it lights a bloom in the room (no rhyme intended) that simply sounds awesome. It lasts for like a second. But that sound bite is delicious, for sure.
