Welcome to Copper #60!

Ye Olde Editor may still be all askew from jet-lag, but life goes on, and half the country is enveloped in a heat wave. I hope you can stay cool, wherever you are.

We've got an abundance of interesting content in this issue, with two interviews: John Seetoo chats with Renaissance man Kamel Boutros, operatic baritone, pianist, organist, actor, church music director, organ-restorer...what have I forgotten? Richard Murison interviews rocket scientist/surround-sound pioneer Edgar Choueiri, in the first of several installments. Richard and Edgar offer the clearest explanations of  hearing mechanisms that I've ever read.

Lucky traveler Larry Schenbeck  sends us a Letter From London; Dan Schwartz  discovers what was missing in his system; Richard Murison offers perspective on the lives of musiciansJay Jay French continues the series of articles on his guitar influences, with the late, great Albert KingRoy Hall runs through a gamut of emotions with the Big CAnne E. Johnson brings us her last indie column with veteran folkie Claudia Schmidt. Anne will start a new column next issue, and I think you'll really enjoy it.  I mourn the passing of David Wilson and look back at how it used to be done .

Industry News looks at several sides of  Sonos; and Anne features a stunning group of recordings of the works of Tomás Luis de Victoria in Something Old/Something New.

Copper #60 concludes with Charles Rodrigues telling us what's what, and a striking and picture-perfect Parting Shot from Richard Murison. Woody Woodward will return in the next issue.

Thanks for reading, and see you then!

Cheers, Leebs.
