40 Years of Service

Get ready to look deeply into the soul of Portland pianist Tony Pacini as you listen to his brand-spanking-new solo piano effort.
Here he is, all alone with the total performance resting solidly on his broad shoulders. He is more than equal to the task. The recording was done from start to finish without any technical manipulation like splicing, editing or overdubbing. It's Pacini pure as fresh snow but much warmer.


Simon Schama's "Rough Crossing: Britain, the Slaves and the American Revolution" (Ecco audio, $29.95) offers an often startling reappraisal of one of the most studied — and glorified — moments in history, presenting the War of Independence from the vantage point of the tens of thousands of slaves who did not share in the much-ballyhooed promise of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
