    Can’t give up my “dumb phone” (clamshell, pullout antenna, works with gloves on), because out on the far canyon trails I’m the only one with reception. However if anything COULD tempt me, these are it.

    I’ve listened to all and downloaded several of these. They’re all at least interesting, many of them stunning. A brilliant idea by the quartet and wonderful, ingenious responses by the composers.
