SENIORS SING-A-LONG WITH SENNHEISER

florence1.JPGSAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA – MAY 2009: Every Friday afternoon at 2:00 pm, the residents at Willow Glen Convalescent Hospital in San Jose, California pack the lounge for “Florence and Friends Sing-Along.” It’s a mixed crowd, with some folks literally dancing in the aisles and other who might, at first glance, appear to be oblivious to the merriment swirling around them. But participants at both extremes, and everyone in-between, benefit from the simple joy of singing and remembering the songs of their youth. Technology has also helped, with high-quality Neumann and Sennheiser wired and wireless microphones encouraging participation from those who might have otherwise remained silent. (more…)

CLEARLY A LUCID DIAMOND

bernie_becker.JPGMOUNTLAKE TERRACE, WASHINGTON – MAY 2009: Few of music’s legendary performers can claim as enduring a career as Neil Diamond. His earliest recordings for Columbia Records date back to 1963, and he produced such a trove of now-classic albums in the 1970s and 1980s that any less driven artist would have shifted contentedly and deservedly into retirement two decades ago. But rather than sip martinis in obscurity, Diamond continued to draw millions of fans to his hugely successful tours throughout the 1990s and early 2000s. A testament to his enduring spark, 2008′s release “Home Before Dark” hit both the Billboard Hot 200 and the U.K. album chart at number one, and his 2008 tour was more successful than any he had launched in the previous forty years.

SENNHEISER e 935s A SMASH WITH TINTED WINDOWS

tinted_windows.JPGOLD LYME, CONNECTICUT – MAY 2009: Way back in 1997, a circus rolled through town, and a seer charged $4.00 for accurate predictions of the future. You felt ripped off when she told you that twelve years hence, members of four disparate bands, Cheap Trick, Hanson, Smashing Pumpkins, and Fountains of Wayne, would form a “super-group” to deliver unambiguous power-pop in a genre that was in danger of losing its way. It was preposterous. What would those bands ever have to do with each other? As you left the tent in a huff, she repeated the words, “Tinted Windows,” over and over again in a quivering voice, which you chalked up to the ravings of a madwoman. (more…)
