Poet's gem

You know the thrill of finding a $20 bill in a pants pocket? Well, we found a Bill, a gem of an unreleased album by the peerless poet of piano jazz, Bill Evans. Some Other Time by the circa-1968 Bill Evans Trio, with Eddie Gomez on bass and the great Jack DeJohnette swinging on the drum kit, immediately qualifies as a “must-have” for any fan of the artist or genre. While every track is a standout, the title song really stands out.

Bright crosswalks

Artist Christo Guelov makes drivers and walkers alike more aware of crosswalks and makes Torrelodones, Spain, more beautiful with his project Funnycross, for which he paints pedestrian crosswalks eye-catching shades of color. If you’re not traveling to Torrelodones anytime soon, you can see Guelov’s work at the artist’s website, www.christo-guelov.net

New side

Everyone has seen photos of Paris landmarks like the Arc de Triomphe and Notre Dame Cathedral. Photographer Sebastian Erras is looking to capture a different side of the city with his series Paris Re-tale, which features various beautiful storefronts, including one for a bakery and another for a toy store.
