Just posted a short review of the film Note by Note. There’s a lot of hope for craft, and for craftsmanship, to be found in this documentary. Let me know what you think. Here's a link to the post on my blog.

Thank you for your excellent review and commentary. I’m definitely going to watch this movie. Your comments about the Steinway Piano factor remind me of the Amana Furniture Company in Amana, Iowa. There they make all of their furniture by hand with true craftsmen with many years of experience. Many of the positions in that shop have been handed down from father to son. They offer tours and I recommend that any woodworker who is traveling in the area should stop for a visit.

Thanks for the suggestion, Rich. The movie is just as much about tradition as it is about music, so there’s something in it for everyone.
