What kind of classical music should i play for my son when he goes to sleep?

He’s 8 months old, was sleeping through the night until his tooth started to bother him. He now wakes up at least once in the middle of the night and i am having a hard time putting him to sleep. Any advice as for which classical music i should play….thanks all.

Hmm. Anyone know what sort of music to play when someone is teething? ;-)

My long-awaited second book, Boozehound, is now in stores. No, wait, mine is Listen to This. Today is the official release date, and I will celebrate, as is my long-standing custom, by placing a signed copy of the book in a little handmade boat in the shape of a swan and setting it loose in the waters of the Hudson River. Actually, I have never done any such thing, and am unlikely to do so now, but I like the image.

Hmmm. Maybe his next book will be Boozehound?

I read Alex Ross’s first book and enjoyed it tremendously. Guess we’ll have to put this one on the list to pick up when money starts rolling in again!

Here are links, in case you want to go ahead and get the book(s) now:
