About John

Classical, rock, blues, jazz...what interests me. I listen to many hours of music a week and sift out what I consider of particular interest for this site. [My personal background is rooted in classical and the "San Francisco Sound"; but, of course it's just the center. Everyone has a center, no matter how much exploration and elaboration throughout life.] If you are interested in more than is posted here, you can check my Facebook page where I publicly post much more music most days. https://www.facebook.com/john.mcdonald.334 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- https://twitter.com/nvsierra
