I am elated ...

is the fitting name for the "Special Enchilada Del Dia" from Cafe Gratitude ... a delicious dish ... soft vegetable tortilla with sprouted seed filling, topped with spice salsa verde and cashew sour cream.   Mine was served with Mexican spiced coleslaw and Bhutanese red rice ... 

Highly recommended ...

Been listening to Astor Piazzolla for the last couple of days ... divine tango music ... the rendition of Gideon Kremer is close to my heart ... Astor is missing from this recording but the powerful violin playing by Kremer of Piazzola's work gives the music a different, totally enjoyable, dimension ... 


To be continued ...

Hé Rudi
'ns kijken of ik hier in 't Nederlands ook kan posten... Hoe gaat het daar met jou?
Astor Piazzolla... niet verwonderlijk dat deze muziek nu z'n weg vindt. Wondermooi en krachtig, troostend en melancholisch. Inderdaad,een prachtige uitvoering die je daar noemt. Ongetwijfeld ken je ook zijn 'Oblivion', een meesterstuk. Maakte je reeds kennis met de uitvoering van Marcel Ponseele op barokhobo (Baroque Oboe Concertos (code:Accent ACC 22156) Marcel Ponseele and Il Gardellino)? 'Outstanding'...
Maar ook van dit muziekstuk maakte Gideon Kremer een prachtige vertolking... Enne, misschien las je er het boek 'De kleur van de tango' van Alicia Dujovne Ortiz bij?
Sincerely, Lieven

That you are enjoying the Kremer plays Piazzolla so much. Always a treat to share great music with friends :-)
There will be more of that in the not so distant future.
