Careless Love — Madeleine Peyroux

Based on a glowing review in the WSJ (my wife thinks I pay way too much attention to everything in the WSJ!), I picked up this disc. Ms. Peyroux has a rich and question-filled voice, aching with a little bit of lost dreams. She is very much in the jazz tradition of the female singer/songwriter that could be your drinking buddy at the end of a late night, or the girlfriend you regret losing.

The arrangements are very straight forward, and the disc bears repeated listening.

Unstuck — Keith Yamashita & Sandra Spataro

If you have ever felt stuck, then you know how much you want to feel “unstuck”. This handy little book encapsulates a variety of techniques for identifying the ways in which individuals and teams and organizations get stuck. Although not “rocket science”, the suggestions and exercises are very illuminating and can provide anyone with a handy reference for moving along when the mental traffic is a little too heavy.
