Plus, with collection names like Oboe, Bongo, and Maraca, you can’t help but get into the groove. Everything old is new again, and I’m totally down with that — it makes me feel like a youngster!

Who knew that “oboe” would help someone get into the groove, eh?

I read it here, about the WESC headphones that I kind of want merely so I can say my headphones are “oboe”. (But no, I won’t be buying them. Really.)

Of course it’s probably not too cool to be saying “into the groove” and then use the word “youngster” … you know?

Movement I:

Movement II:

Movement III:

The oboist, Kevin Pearl, has posted a number of videos. Check ’em out!
