Now I just found a musical artist who is new and exciting…well, he’s not exactly new or terribly exciting…his name is Mantovani…or more formally Annunzio Paolo Mantovani…he was big in the 1950’s, long before the Beatles came along…some people might call it elevator music, but when it’s late and I’m writing or reading something, I like to put his music on…it’s calming…Variety magazine once called him "the biggest musical phenomenon of the twentieth century"…he died in 1980 largely forgotten by the public or respected by fellow musicians…it relaxes me, I like it.
