For the last show of the year, I had my good friends from the Sydney band Storm Cellar come in and pay me a visit.

As well as playing a selection of tracks from their new CD Carl’s Chair, we also discussed a few other musical concepts and bounced some musical ideas off one another.

It’s now just a few days before Christmas, so I thought that perhaps I should play some seasonal music. Yo Yo Ma has an excellent CD with some wonderful guests including Dave Brubeck, but I chose his version of John Lennon’s Happy Christmas, and the beautiful Wexford Carol with Allison Krauss.

A couple of local musicians have some new CDs out too: Jim Finn’s band, Finn, has 10 Years Old, and the elegant Dennis Aubrey has his Christmas 1914 available; a couple of tracks from each seemed to be a good idea. Be sure to catch them around the traps in Sydney.
