There is a book published which may be of interest to listeners

This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession by Daniel J. Levitin.

Phil Ramone,

Much appreciation for your work on another TBS production, "An All-Star Tribute to Brian Wilson" back in 2001. Any thoughts on Brian's upcoming Kennedy Center Honors? Which song(s) should they definitely perform there, and who should perform it?

What a horrible idea: putting an orchestra behind Ella and Joe Pass... What's the point?
The greatest guitarist and the one of the greatest singers in American jazz should be enough for anybody.
