I went to see some live music the other night and had all kinds of new (or they felt new) thoughts about
live music vs. recorded music.

I picked up the Cd too. It sounds really good. Much attention to detail, interesting programming, good production.

Then there was the show...sure it was good. (all really good musicians!) But, what about the sound,
attention to detail, programming...?

Is the art of live performance dead? Am I just repeating Glen Gould from 30 years ago? It is odd to me th at
you go to a club (perhaps thats the key word) pay a good sized cover charge and get a fairly casual
performance from some great artists.

Is this a Toronto problem? Do i just think too much? Club vs. concert...not sure.

happy minus 30 degrees folks!!
