Default Bond

A fabulous string quartet in known as Bond. They are four women who are very good musicians and know how to use the computer a lot. Their song that I prefer are Samba. Does anyone of you know of who I'm talking about?

Yeah, I have their DVD (I think they just have one). The live one at Albert Hall. I like most of it, except for their rendition of the theme from Dallas...yeesh. The first and last numbers are my favorites. I know strings to a techno back beat can turn a lot of people off, but they did a decent job of mixing the two.

It's a little goofy, but it is still a fun DVD.

Besides, I have "Art of the Violin" if I want a serious documentary on violinists!

Yeah, I enjoyed it a lot, actually. It was kind of pricey at $29.99, but it looks like Amazon is selling it for $21 now, so that's not too bad. It's basically a documentary on the great violinists of the 20th century. They also make one for piano and one for singing (I haven't seen either of those)

The reviews on Amazon do a good job of describing it. I've watched it a couple of times.

So, what CD would be best to pick up to start with? I just have their DVD. Fugeo is on Shine, but they have Classified out as a later album.
