I've been hearing his new album on my local radio station all week and really enjoy it. So I just now went to his website to learn more and discovered that you can listen to each track in full! It's great!!

Here is the link: http://www.joshuabell.com/music/at-home-with-friends

When you click on one of tracks, you will get a pop up window that is the player. I really like "Choverdo na Roseira" with Dave Gruisin and "I'll Take Manhattan" with Marvin Hamlisch. And the Grieg one is nice too. Actually, all of the album is very nice music, though.

You can also hear more of his recordings on the same place. I can't believe it's full tracks and not just thirty-second samples. Love this!! :D

Edit - also just found Bell playing Chopin's Mazurka in F-sharp minor in the same pop-up player. Really neat! You have to scroll down quite a bit to find the track. It's in his album "The Essential Joshua Bell".

Thank you for finding and posting this! I really enjoy listening to Bell's playing.

Though everything else may appear shallow and repulsive, even the smallest task in music is so absorbing, and carries us so far away from town, country, earth, and all worldly things, that it is truly a blessed gift of God.

Felix Mendelssohn
