For the last three and a half years, award-winning music journalist Tom Moon has
been searching out peak musical experiences from all genres and every corner of
the earth. 1000 Recordings To Hear Before You Die, published
by Workman Publishing in August 2008, is the result of his journey. Covering both
acknowledged world-culture masterworks (J.S. Bach's Goldberg Variations)
and recordings that have been unfairly overlooked (Nick Drake's Five Leaves
Left), the book is designed to encourage listeners to become explorers.
Moon lives with his wife, daughter, two dogs and an attic full of music outside
of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
