I bought a copy of Tom Moon’s “1,000 Recordings To Hear Before You Die.” It’s a thick book. I’ve been wading through it for two weeks and have only scratched the surface. Reading it is a very humbling experience for a music professional. Makes me realize that even though I eat, sleep and breathe music, there is always more of the art form to experience. What Mr. Moon has compiled is so much more than a list of “must hear” recordings. It is a comprehensive tribute to the one truly universal language……music.
I love the Henry David Thoreau quote found on one of the opening pages. “When I hear music, I fear no danger. I am invulnerable. I see no foe. I am related to the earliest times, and to the latest.”
If you’re into music, this is a book you should consider adding to your reading list.
