Music is one of my great passions. Not just classical. At the beginning of this month we went to visit some friends in Grenoble and we spent hours on end, until very very very late, listening to those brilliant Winterreise Lieder by Schubert, the great romantic Austrian composer. Bill Carrothers, maybe a new kind of romantic from the modern Jazz scene, was a discovery to me. Carrothers is a lover a Paris and is completely ignored by the American version of Wikipedia, although he originates from Minneapolis, Minnesota. His records are hard to find, but I recommend the first track on the “after hours” album. I recommend you go to Amazon France and listen to the first track, “in the wee small hours”.
