Pianist David Lanz



Check out pianist David Lanz at his site. He has been around for a while but I thought about a cd of his I had years ago and visited his site out of curiosity. He has free listening demos there. The older albums are my favorite especially "Return to the Heart," his second best selling album. This piano solo album is very quiet and intimate with a hint of mystery. He even has variations on a theme from Pachelbel's Canon in D Major that is really nice. However, his later albums tend towards Jazz with the added instruments of upright bass and drums... thus they don't impress me that much (I'm not a huge Jazz fan unless its live). Check out the site: davidlanz.com
For those of you in Sacramento and surrounding areas, I also found out that he will be performing in Dixon March 28th and 29th at 8:00pm at the Dixon Performing Arts Theater. The tickets are only between $15-$25 online, click here or by calling 800.838.3006. They are also available at Dixon City Hall. If I were in town, I would definitely be there. Since I was introduced to his music I have always wanted to hear him live.

Excellent!
I am in Music Appreciation right now with Professor Janell @ AST! :)
We have to attend a few concerts and I think this would qualify.

Hey! Yeah, Valentine's was def an adventure this year. I'm sorry to hear that you are down with that horrid little bug. I managed to escape unscathed. It's been a little over a week of staying home with them and babying their every move. The key is to get TONZ of rest. Because, you can relapse...make sure to drink lots of water. And if you have the occasion make sure to have some tea with honey to coat your throat. It will feel great!

And as far as Kabob House....mmm, as much as you love Thai Basil...I love Kabob...heheh, me and my "acquired tastes"

James, yes I'm sure it would qualify. Make sure to save your ticket stub and program. =) Sometimes they like proof that you really went. You'll have to tell me all about it... I've wanted to hear him for a long time.

Misha, aww.. what a mess. Me and Noah have been wiping noses together the last few days. Now Jerms is claiming ailment... Whoa is me... I am undone. It was sooo sweet though because my mother-in-law came over last night and watched Noah. She told me to go lie down or read or do whatever I wanted not feel like I had to come out of my room and she'd watch Noah for a few hours. Ahhhhhh sweet relief.
