A new welcome

It's January 1, 2016. Welcome to the ever-so-slightly revised website of Joby Bell. It has been revised in that the "home" page is no longer my blog but rather this News reporting tab (which is not new). For this new year, I have taken a new interest in reporting the news (here) rather than interpreting the news (in the blog). I suppose you could say it's an actually fair and balanced version of Fox News's slogan, "We report. You decide."

At any rate, I am pleased to report a large handful of recording projects in the works, one of which is about to come out of the oven in the editing studio. I have nearly decided on a clever title for the entire series, which I'll report later. (It hasn't been approved yet by my crackerjack producer.) But I think it will work. It's a catchall title, under which I could create volume after volume for many years. I'm proud of it.

I'm also working feverishly on an in-house textbook for my organ lit course, which will begin in about a week. For years I have wanted to produce such a tool for my students' ease of reading and my ease of imparting. I may share some clever lines from it with you soon. It reads a bit like a juicy novel at times (just like organ history has unfolded, yes?).

Wishing you all best in 2016.
