What recordings do you buy and why? What recordings have you listened to recently? Robert Hurwitz, President, Nonesuch Records

I buy records for at least five reasons: professionally (I want to hear people I haven’t heard before, or I want to hear recordings that people I trust are talking about); I buy them for my children (records they want and records I think they might like); I buy them to hear musician friends when they forget to send me a copy of their latest album;  I buy records that I simply want to hear because I still love listening to music; and I buy CDs of LPs I haven’t replaced (because I don’t listen to my old LPs, so unless I replace them, those discs are lost forever).
