a renaissance blog

It’s not a blog about the Renaissance, but it is a blog by something of a renaissance man, from the double bass section of the Oregon Symphony, no less! Jeff Johnson is well-known by his colleagues as a quiet wit whose still waters run very deep. He doesn’t always speak up, but when he does, it’s with a quiet thoughtfulness that causes everyone in the room to take heed of what he says. So, please take a look at his stunning new blog – called Basslines – it has poetry, prose, program notes, all rendered with care and with an eye to beauty as well. And tell your friends!

meanwhile, in esoteric land

I don’t know why I love this as much as I do, but I do.
