The soundtrack to Frank Zappa's strange early-'70s film 200 Motels was always doomed to be a peripheral entry in his discography. The movie's story was not easy to follow, and neither is the record (not that plot was ever a big focus of the production). It's typically wacky Zappa of the era, with unpredictable sharp turns between crunchy rock bombast, orchestration, and jazz/classical influences, as well as interjections of wacky spoken dialogue. Those who like his late-'60s/early-'70s work – not as song-oriented as his first albums, in other words, but not as "serious" or as silly as his later records – will probably like this fine, although it's not up to the level of Uncle Meat.

Picking up where they left off with 1995's duet recording Tone Poems II, mandolin master David Grisman and guitar great Martin Taylor blithely saunter through a dozen jazz staples. Taylor's playing boasts a blues-soaked intensity and insouciant fire that isn't normally associated with the willowy and refined soloist, while Grisman showcases a wide variety of adventurous ideas, but at no time do the issues seem forced. The sympathetic and delicate rhythmic support of bassist Jim Kerwin and drummer George Marsh contributes to the air of easygoing delight. Taylor even picks up the mandolin himself on a hidden "keepsake".

Géza Anda: The Telefunken Recordings - masterpieces of incisive poetry and brilliant technique.
These recordings are characterised by Géza Anda's distinctive balance of spontaneity and intellectual control, incisive poetry and brilliant technique. Géza Anda bestows upon his audience not only a pianistic and musical moment of glory, but also invites them to witness the birth of a pianistic aestheticism where objectivity and fantasy are no contradiction but are dependent on each other.

This is not (just) a CD for me; it represents the essence of everything that takes place when I create music. There is the fortune of my being able to live music. There is the quintessence of my good luck, as if it were contained inside a precious casket. There is every shade of the magic that is in what I do. Perhaps, it is for this very reason that I like the term that is used to mean CD in English: album.

David Grisman's musical interests have been so varied that he is impossible to categorize stylistically, one of the reasons he has long described his playing everywhere as "Dawg Music." This is a bit of an unusual outing, as it consists of a trio with bluegrass/folk guitarist/vocalist Jim Hurst, Grisman (mostly on mandolin), and his son Samson on bass…
