Read "The Discovery Project: Live In Japan" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki


In the golden age of television commercials, one commercial distinguished between a product that was popular because it was associated with good taste and one that was popular because it tasted good.

Sara Gazarek and Josh Nelson: Dream In The Blue

The success of a story often hinges on the art of the telling. Listen to vocalist Sara Gazarek with pianist Josh Nelson and you immediately see that to be true.
