View Full Version : Recommendation please
I would like a specific name and title to order so if one of you could put me on track I would appreciate it. I'm looking for music similar to, I will use movies for a common reference, Lady and the Tramp, Captain Corellis Mandolin, My big fat Greek Weeding. These are a few shoes that had tunes I liked. I have no experience with this type of music. Thanks John
Well, the most obvious would be Music from the Novels of Louis Bernieres (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00002EPMX/qid=1081127792/sr=1-2/ref=sr_1_2/104-4200698-8923169?v=glance&s=classical) by our own Alison Stephens.
Not sure what the connection (if any) would be to the other two examples, except, as you state, you like the music.
Thanks Jim, I'll be ordering it shortly. John
I would hope that this recording would lead you to quite a few others. Alison has a number of wonderful CDs. I woul also recommend others by folks on this list including (but not limited to): Richard Walz, Alex Timmerman, Mark Levesque, Marc Woodward and Plamen & Danney. (I hope I did not leave anyone out -- please speak up if I did).
I would also recommend any recording with Carlo Aonzo on it. He has a couple of italian music with Beppe Gambetta one called Serenata and one called Traversata. He also has a few classical issues as well.
I would also recommend Duo Capricioso (http://www.mandolincafe.com/cmsa/groups/troster.html).
I will stop there and leet others chime in.
Hey thanks again Jim. I don't normally frequent this part of the board so the names you mentioned are all new to me. I still haven't started to learn but am building my first mando as we speak/type. I have been working on designs for a carved top bowl back but it is turning into quite a challenge. I have decided a lot of BG just isn't for me so all your suggestions will be checked out. Thanks again John
