Music is another good form of escape from the cold dreariness of winter. Recent new additions to the Logos musical collection are the double co collection of Dave Samuels’ Caribbean Jazz Project’s ‘Here And Now— Live In Concert’, ‘Cosmopolitan: Jazz & Cocktails’, ‘Hecho En Cuba, the Complete Collection’, and ‘Romantica’. The mixture of jazz and Caribbean sounds of the trumpets, congas, piano and percussion create a sense of heat and undulating waves and being at the beach. ‘Romantica’ features the lyrical guitar of Steven Pasero, founder of Sugo Music. ‘Hecho En Cuba ‘ is a real deal. It is a three cods collection of Cuban music featuring previously unreleased works of Ruben Gonzalez, Compay Segundo and Ibrahim Ferrer as well as Celia Cruz, Eliades Ochoa and the Afro Cuban All Stars for only $25.98. ‘Cosmopolitain Jazz & Cocktails’ is as it sounds a smooth bright rendition of popular standards from the Jazz Age through the age of Rock.
The Scarlet Letter
by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Penguin Classics, $6, Bantam Classics, $3.95, W.W. Norton, $13
Meanwhile Kill Your TV Reading Group (KYTV) continues with a string of classics. Having just finished discussing The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne, the group will discuss Bleak House by Charles Dickens, Wednesday, April 5, 2006 at 7 P.M.
The Scarlet Letter is well—worth reading. Hawthorne creates a moving drama that keeps the reader wondering what will happen to Hester Prynne, her child, Pearl, Roger Chillingworth and the minister Arthur Dimmesdale. The last chapters of the book just fly.
Besides books, Logos has greeting cards for all occasions. So come check us out for St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Passover, Birthdays, new babies, whenever you need a card, a book, some music, some artwork, whatever!#
