Stan Getz: The Best of the Verve Years, Vol. 1



There is nothing better on a rainy Sunday afternoon in March than writing to the music of Stan Getz.

sorry Greg, but I find it impossible to write if there is music on - I like to write in the silence of my study -

Well, I've got Bix Beiderbecke on here, but I know what you mean.

I always have music on when I write. I wouldn't say that I "have" to have it, but it helps me get into the mood. I like to choose music that will reflect the mood of the piece I'm working on.

My primary reason for listening to music as I write is for sound deadening. I live in a small house––with two little kids, three dogs, two cats, etc., and a washing machine and dryer located not eight feet from my computer.

Without the music on low as a sort of "white noise," I would be in trouble––on weekends, in particular, when I write while everyone else is awake.

String quartets and quintets are other favorites.

Hey Greg,

I deleted the blog. I really liked doing it, but I had a lot of seriously senitive readers, and I felt like I couldn't post stuff I wanted to. I got tired of a few posters with snobby artsy-fartsy attitudes. Perhaps I deleted out of emotion...but I am looking for some kind of creative outlet now that I don't have it. Maybe I'll start a new blog...

Well, for the record, I REALLY miss your blog!

Be well!

Unfortunately, my experience has been that a press that's "interested" in publishing your next book is not necessarily the same as a press that will publish it. So I'm in the same boat. Happy rowing!

Also unfortunately, I did not post my comment on the post on which I was commenting! I'm losing it!

I am listening to The Bossa Nova Years (a double CD set on Verve). I agree. GC
