You know Brian Setzer. Stray Cats. The Brian Setzer Orchestra. Rockin swing/jazz/etc. Jump Jive an Wail. Rock This Town. He’s turned his sights on classical music, like Beethoven, 1812 Overture, William Tell, etc.
Heard an interview with him on NPR’s Fresh Air this morning on the way to the Sacramento airport. Sounded awesome. Got to the airport, cracked open my Mac, and looked to see if my new favorite source of music, Amazon MP3, had the album. It’s brand new, just out this week, so I had my doubts.
Yup, it was there. Only $8.99, too. Listened to some of the samples. Got hooked. Clicked “Buy this MP3 Album”. It started downloading. From learning about the album to deciding I like it to owning and listening to it in about an hour. Would have been sooner if it weren’t for the security line at the airport.
Now I’m sitting here in the airport food court, rocking out, and writing this post. BTW, this is the second time this week that I’ve heard about a new album on NPR in the car, then come home and bought it from AmazonMP3 (the other was KT Tunstall’s new one, Drastic Fantasic, which was my first AmazonMP3 purchase).
Can you say “completely frictionless”? I knew you could.
I LOVE the internet!
