Diana Krall / Mrs. Elvis Costello

"If I fell under the spell of your call I would be caught in the undertow. So you see, I've got to say No No; all or nothing at all."
 
It's the last verse in the Lawrence/Altman tune from 1939, and a keeper in Krall's repertoire. Well, she had to say yes to Elvis (they were married in December '03) and, happily, she has not been pulled out to sea.

Composer Philip Glass

In January, the National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Leonard Slatkin, performed the world premiere
of the "Toltec Symphony." 
 
Composer Philip Glass found inspiration in the music of the Toltec people of central Mexico. The piece lasts a mere 30 minutes, a short 'sit' compared to his five-hour "Einstein on the Beach."
