ALZlive asked artist and music-lover Leopold Plotek about what he listens to when he needs a boost. Lee visits his 94-year-old mother regularly at a long-term care facility in Montreal. He isn’t always sure she knows who he is.
Lee was born in Moscow in 1948. But even though he has lived in Montreal for most of his life, the delight he takes in jazz retains the enthusiasm of someone from the Old World who has never stopped being bowled over by the musical energy of the new.
Some of these are happy songs. Some of them simply make Plotek happy because they are so inventive, so musical, and so good. If you want a play-list of jazz classics, you could do worse than to copy Lee Plotek’s chosen pick-me-ups.
We welcome your lists. Let us know the music that lifts your spirits when they most need lifting.
