The Fine Arts

I've been listening to my ipod music in order. Art Blakey was excellent, then came Art Pepper. Art Tatum was fine, but got wearying after the first hour. The sonic landscape was just too uniform. Arthur Jarvinen was good in a Morton Feldman piece. Arthur Weisberg, who used to be my ex-brother in law's bassoon teacher, conducted some George Crumb Lorca pieces that I have never been able to like. The finest of the arts this time around was Pepper.
