Cousin Mosquito: Before he stings, he sings!

Read about Congresswoman Malinda Jackson Parker and listen to Cousin Mosquito No.2.

Classical viola player, educator, and avid music collector. I am interested in classical music, especially 20th-century classical and avant-garde music, or anything featuring the viola. I also love krautrock, progressive rock, and 80s-90s college rock, and some jazz and fusion. I presently have maybe 25% of my collection cataloged here, with the bulk of the rest not yet currently in the database (especially classical). Adding new entries as time allows. It's a work in progress!

I'm also a private seller, offering items from my collection, and adding titles every couple weeks: mostly rock, jazz, classical, and folk, with a few oddities thrown in too. I grade carefully and pack professionally. Be sure to try out the "Less than $5" filter: I have lots of good stuff in all genres in that category. Check my Sellers' Terms for more information.
