I was about to blog about the launch of NPR.org/music when I clicked over and discovered they have a streaming version of Nickel Creek’s current Farewell (for now) Concert tour. (And yes, I have tickets to the tour’s final, final stop (for now) on November 29 in Nashville.) Rather than blog, I decided to listen to some music. So read about NPR.org/music here.

Later: Okay, after checking out NPR.org/music, I’m about to declare that it’s the coolest web service since Google Maps. And here’s a gem from Yo Yo Ma’s “top five favorites” list: “My friend Edgar Meyer said I absolutely had to hear the mandolinist Chris Thile. What an amazing musician.”
