gene's CLASSICAL shelf

if you are reading this, there's a good chance you know Gene. He's the owner/operator of Horizon Records and he's kind of a geek about classical in all its many forms, and especially about piano music, things from ECM Records , and lately about what he calls late moderns (ambient, minimalists, and the generally bliss-ed out edges of classical)... I've heard that some days that's the only thing that gets played in the back room. Even Renaissance and Early choral music, omg Poor Luci.
