Alisa Weilerstein plays Osvaldo Golijov’s

Alisa Weilerstein plays Osvaldo Golijov’s composition like the master she is, to me, this young woman is a priceless American treasure. John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Jaco Pastorius, may be the only musicians I can think of that shined in their very own bright blinding singular light like this young beautiful lady….I think he (Osvaldo Golijov’) is one of the finest composer today, anywhere, and after the mainstream classical snobs gets their “holier then thou” heads out of their ass’s long enough to hear what this man from another part of the world, richly rooted in the soil of his own land, brings to the table, they too, may get blessed with his gift…

Cinema Paradiso – Yo-Yo Ma and Chris Botti

I came from a jazz background and have had the privilege to be in the company of some off the greatest jazz musicians ever to grace us…But to take the time and really hear what these classical musicians do with their time and efforts, as they reach into their instrument with as close to perfection as humanly possible through a life time of diligent effort, and draw out the very soul of the instrument itself, like no one else on earth can do, blows me away. It really transcends anything else my ears have ever opened up to. Im not comparing apples with oranges. I just think not to let this music into ones world is a big loss to anyone who loves music…
