Benghazi=Watergate? Bullshit. The IRS scandal=Watergate? Bullshit. The AP sandal=Watergate? Bullshit. With all the negativity, lies, speculation and accusations, I really feel the need for the soothing power of music. All the BS will still be here on Monday, plus the inevitable stories of murder and mayhem. Music will never prevent such things, but it can give one a pleasurable time out.
So, post your favorite, soothing music. Instrumentals, or just your favorite instrument solos. Trumpets, Drums, Pianos,
Saxaphones, Flutes, Clarinets, Harps, Harmonicas…..etc. Just sit back and listen or post some of your favorite soothing music. Any style, era or genre.

Ottmar Liebert, Barcelona Night
I love this guy. I first heard him on a jazz station here in the bay area. Had to hunt around to figure out who he was though. It was when Tower Records was still open and they had listening stations. That is how I found Liebert and African Vibes. I could listen to both CD’s over and over and not realize they are replaying.
Hey Sue. Yeah, I really like Flamenco guitar. There are some really good players out there.
