New Amsterdam Records for which he has written music for works by Paul Auster, Sylvia Plath, Osip Mandelstam, Maxine Kumin, Donald Justice, Langston Hughes, Audre Lorde and others. His newest release, "words projects iii: miniatures" is a departure from the earlier recordings in that Sadigursky decided to use shorter poems, no band, and hardly any improvisation. Poems by Carl Sandburg, Emily Dickinson, William Carlos Williams, Fernando Pessoa and others are featured. To find out more about this fine young musician, tune in the show or go to www.samsadigursky.com.
But Ms. Grumdahl, restaurant critic and senior editor of "Minnesota Monthly" and the proprietor of "deardara.com", avoids the b.s. that can creep into wine talk. She knows that really learning about wine takes many glasses over many years so she arms the reader with the right amount of information that takes the sting out of picking wine (and won't make one feel like a dolt.) Informative, humorous and well-written, "Drink This" is impressive.
