TEST What's the best album ever created?
TC: The [Leonard] "Bernstein Century" series consistently amazes me. I also think Talking Head's "Stop Making Sense" DVD/CD and Wilco's "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" are excellent.
TK: My answer changes weekly, but right now: Cho-Liang Lin playing the Sibelius Violin Concerto.
Who is the greatest living musician?
TC: I'm still debating between Renee Fleming, Richard Stoltzman, Pierre Boulez, Eric Clapton and, obviously, Tim Kantor.
TK: Gil Shaham, Phife Dawg, Itzhak Perlman, Toby Crawford (in no particular order).
What is the best show you've ever seen live?
TC: The Dave Brubeck Quartet.
TK:.Bowdoin Common Hour featuring student ensembles.
What is the first album you ever bought?
TC: That album with that song that goes "sometimes you're crazy and you wonder why I'm such a baby cause the dolphins make me cry." Okay, okay...Hootie & the Blowfish's "Cracked Rear View" still has a special place in my heart.
TK: Tupac Shakur, "All Eyez on Me."
What's your musical guilty pleasure?
TC: Late night sing-a-longs to James Blunt's "Tears & Rain" are fast becoming a weekend tradition. I'll answer the next question now.
TK: The Beach Boys.
If you were dictator of a small country, what would be your national anthem?
TC: "Just Call My Name" by James Taylor. I would project myself as an approachable, caring dictator.
TK: "We Will Rock You" by Queen.
If you were onstage with a mic in front of thousands of screaming fans, what would you say?
TC: I usually say, "Who's that behind me?" It suggests humility.
