Many web sites change over time, so there is no guarantee that the sites recommended by students in 1997 are there now. I try to keep the links at the bottom current, though. Recommended by Hediard
Celine Dion site
Some Jazz links from Jaesoon
Pat Metheny
Keith Jarret
    If someone requests, How can I listen jazz music? then I always recommend him. Keith Jarret. His name can misunderstanding of his nationality. It sounds European, but he is an American, and his playing type is really different than any other player. He always singing with his tone....
Al Di Meola
    He is most famous artist in jazz scene. When he was 19 years old, he joined Return to Forever( jazz group). After 5 or 6 years, he played solo. From 1979 to 1985 he was chosen the best guitarist in magazine (Guitar Player). He played this time only accoustic guitar. If you want to hear his guitar sound, I recommend the album named "Friday Night In San Francisco". That album reveals what is the limit of acoustic guitar sound.
From 'Waiting to Exhale'
This site is about the movie "Waiting to Exhale." The soundtrack of this album is really wonderful. It sounds good! In this album we can listen to the songs of Whitney Houston "Exhale" "Why does you hurt so bad" "Count on me", Toni Braxton "Let it flow", Brandy "Sitting up in my room", Mary J. Blige "Not gon' cry", Chake Kahn "My funny valentine" .... It a real fantastic R&B compilation album. Every song is good.

    I like his guitar sound. His tone is really good. He is just like jazz player. I'll buy his new album.
The Doors
Suthida's Favorite Artist--Real McCoy
This is Brandy's official homepage. She is all around entertainer. From her first album "brandy" she made two top 10 singles. Also she participated in several soundtrack albums and made hits. "Sittin' up in my room" ranked 2nd in billboard single chart and "missing you" ranked in top 10. She also act as a TV drama actor and study as a students. Nowadays she tries to catch several rabbits.
I think you can enjoy brandy's "baby". It's somewhat simple but this is this song's goodness. Her layering makes this song rich.
