My iTunes: Birds in Flight by The Ravel Trio and Kyle Engler

A friend of mine has a photo blog that I frequent and has been doing "Project: Yellow" as a theme for her pictures for the past few days. Unfortunately because I have been dealing with health issues with my back, I haven't been able to join her in posting for the past few days. But, I'm finally jumping on the bandwagon and posting this.

The latest on my herniated disc: I have an appointment with the orthopedic surgeon on Thursday and will most likely be scheduling surgery.

The song I'm listening to was performed yesterday by The Ravel Trio and Kyle Engler. Kyle is my voice teacher and she occasionally joins the trio, of which her husband, Daniel Lau, is the pianist, as an accompanying vocalist. The group mostly performs classical music, but some jazz as well. They recently have been performing a series of songs by women composers. They commissioned Dotti Anita Taylor to write this song specifically for them. This woman is quite musically talented and is a pianist, flautist, vocalist, composer, and poet. And she is a math professor. I've really enjoyed what I've heard from The Ravel Trio, and I always jump at the chance to hear my voice teacher sing.

I'm so glad so many of us are being challenged with Anna's Project Yellow.
