It's sometimes astonishing to me how something so seemingly insignificant can make such an improvement in my mood. After a really lackluster (read: crappy) couple of days, I find myself relaxing and smiling after an afternoon of music hunting. (Okay, gathering. Hunting would be if I knew exactly what I was after and engaged in a "surgical strike" shopping mission. What happened this afternoon was definitely "gathering.")

I'm reminded of the entry I made here, however many posts ago it was (while I was with the C-company, so I know it was before March) about may day being that much better because the Pop-Tarts in the vending machine were less than the indicated price. This is kinda what that feels like.

I found a reissue of an album that I remember fondly from my youth, the duet between Kenny Burrll and John Coltrane. Two experimental purchases yielded unexpectedly delightful fruit: on a whim, I picked up Life, Love and Leaving by the Detroit Cobras, to be treated to what I might best describe as "garage blues." And I found Gling Glo, recorded by an Icelandic jazz trio with none other than the pixieish Bjork on vocals. I expected quirkiness, but I didn't expect to be as charmed as I was.

I also picked up a bundle of used classical (Orff, Mozart, Rimsky-Korsakov) for a song (so to speak), but the albums I listed above are the ones that made me glad I got out of the office for a few minutes tonight.
