This time it is a smoother "competition" than it often is otherwise, but the musical range may be greater than ever. And there are already lots of records queuing for the next tasting that will hopefully come soon. Then there will be a lot of LPs.

Naxos Norway is launching a brand new label. NXN Recordings aims to release music without genre restrictions.

Okay, not all of the tasting happened on Mother's Day. A little poaching in advance is necessary, but it does not detract from the fact that this became a mundane Mother's Day party.
