In the night I woke up and there was a ghostly presence in the toilet, fearing it may be the burger eating king himself , I took a step backwards.

It wasnt elvis after all, it was in fact much worse, it was robin glibb singing along to a jazz bagpiper. I may never go to the toilet again in the night regardless of my lack of colostomy bag and cathetar.

Once when I was much younger and not so scathing of 90.4 percent of humanity I got given a heeby jeebies ticket for one of their extremely inexpensive concerts that helped pay for their humble monklike lifestyles.The value of the ticket was only $400

I swapped it with a friend for a free cult indoctrination pass that allowed me acccess in to he cults headquarters somehwere in the woods in Hungary.

This is where the medieval fortress is that they have built for the duel purpose of keeping "ordinary" folk out ( like us) and keeping the "specials" in.

When I say "the specials" I dont mean that most excellent band of the same name, I mean the "chosen ones"

Allthough on the surface this may sound like I got the worst part of the deal, the cult recognised that I was just a little to vulnerable for their purposes what with nearly getting to see the heeby jeebies play live an all, so they just detuned me some and let me go back to wales without the usual woo woo happening first.

I was lucky, there are others who havent been so fortunate, so I am now even more gratefull for the small things in life ( like prince say, but not Tom Cruise because he was indoctrinated by scientolgy which shows he had a weak mind and should therefore have watched the heeby jeebies instead.)

Hey CaptainKawai! Thanks for the Dave Brubeck. I haven't heard him in years. What a coincidence that you were posting that saxophonist just as was about to post one of my saxophonists, Grover Washington, Jr.

Here is "Can You Stop the Rain."

Rossy, what are you eating before going to bed? What is in the food that brings about such dreams? There's a research project for you! grin

Now I must admit that initially the thought of jazz bagpipes does not sound very appealing to me, though i enjoy jazz. However, you've gotten me curious enough to perhaps do a little research on this. I am so sure that you'll want to hear more! I'll get back to you on that...someday! laugh

Anyways, what have you been listening to lately? Isn't it high time that you share? If you do, you might stop dreaming about Robin Gibbs.

I'll be right back with one more posting.

Seriously, Rossy, if you hate Robin Gibbs so badly then just stop thinking and writing long post related to him. You're actually making him unforgettable when people here are about to forget him laugh

Please, it's long enough since you haven't shared any music with us. What about the celebrated Sunday DID? What about your own compositions - the next project of 'Rostosky's 13th Crystal Skull Project'?

Very funny video, KeysAngler, I love Laurel and Hardly, amazing comedians.


Rossy, your story has reminded me the Devil's Sonata. I hope you didn’t get inspired to play the bagpipe.


This evening I’ve been listening to the fourth symphony by Dvorak. I always feel optimistic when I hear Dvorak’s music. I encourage listening to the whole symphony, here’s a sample, the third movement.

Legally, as a member of the commonwealth, I am obliged to root for the mother country, who, I must say, made a rather brave choice with Mr. Humperdinck (even if, by Pop music standards, the song is fairly mediocre - yet, and surprisingly enough, still a cut above most of the junk presented in the contest).



I find it hard to beleive that the same Empire (England is still and empire, right?) who gives us the likes of Coldplay, Adele, and S-Club7, and basically invented the enitre genre of Pop music, could not do better than this. Are they just teasing the other countries? Saying, "even our worst Pop is good enough to beat your hackneyed, overproduced, poorly written, bosom filled, lip injected, greasy, wanna-be famous, clap-trap."

Nope, I simply won't stand for this! Lock me in the Tower if you must. But this competition exemplifies bad song writing at its finest and I won't have any of it!

(In protest) I say: GO RUSSIA!



Not because the grannies are awesome (which they are), but because Russia should be applauded for not pretending to take this frightful competition seriously.


Though I do think a honorable mention should go to Montenegro. Rambo Amadeus is pretty damn brilliant.




As a final point I would just like to say: WTF Ireland?


(catchy tune though)

Griffin. Great stuff. I learnt to lay lead guitar by copying BB King (then later Clapton). Caldonia and this one were my favourites.

Oops, forgot to do a little research before posting these; just found that Griffin has already introduced Shakti here. Anyway, I'm lucky that these particular pieces haven't been posted. So, Griffin, these are for you smile

Psst, Griffin, I saw in one of your previous posts mentioning Pandit Ravi Shankar. I've a huge collection of various Indian Classical musics. If you and/or anybody here are interested I can post some, as I'm always hesitated awfully to post Indian Classical musics here smile

Rupak, I would also be thrilled to hear Indian Classical music!! please don't hold back. This forum is one of the few outlets I have for learning about all kinds of music I've never been exposed to.

For example, Recaredo has exposed us to flamenco and fandango. I truly appreciate these exchanges of music. That's what I love about this thread!

Thanks a lot Sandy and Griffin for showing interest in Indian Classical music. I personally believe that a really good music doesn't respect nationality. Music has its own language which is universal to all music lovers.

Anyway, it's almost Griffin's time for Sunday classical. So I'd post only one (though it's long enough, usually Indian classical musics are longer than this). OK, let's start with Pandit Ravi Shankar since he's been already mentioned here.

As many of you may know, Indian classical musics are based on Raga. I won't elaborate it as Wikipedia is always there to help. The following performance of Ravi Shankar is on raga Parameshwari which was created by Ravi Shankar himself. The first part consists of Alaap (slow introductory improvisations, characterizing the raga), Jor (medium-tempo) and Jhala (fast). This part is rhythmically free. The second part is fixed in a rhythm and is accompanied by a Tabla. This part is called Bandish. A Bandish may also have Vilambit (slow-tempo), Madhyalaya (medium-tempo) and Drut (fast-tempo) variations.

Why did you delete your previous post on Mark O'Connor and Caroline Shankar's Nomad, KeysAngler? I really enjoyed that. But I didn't understand Sitar and Fiddle that you mentioned. I could only discern violin accompanied by Tabla.

Anyway, I love Oscar Peterson very much too. Thanks for it!

Because I received a copyright violation notice from Utube ... I tried to find a video of Nomad but couldn't so I made one with Windows Movie Maker and posted it on Utube ... that was the first attempt at making a video with WMM ...
live and learn I guess

I call a violin a fiddle ... I thought it was a sitar but that was just a dumb guess... I'm not familiar with Indian instruments ... anyway Nomad is on Mark O'Connors album 'Heroes'

Great postings everyone! Rupak, I am so happy that you are posting Indian classical music. I will be listening to the entire posting later today when I can listen without distractions. I started listening a bit ago and became engrossed in it, and soon realized I was supposed to be posting this morning too! laugh

KeysAngler, I loved the Oscar Peterson selection. I hope we can get to hear more in the future. He is an amazing pianist.

Well, I guess it's time to do my Sunday classical postings, and then I'll get to have the treat of listening to everyone else's choices for today! My first selection is a choral piece by Gabriel Faure, "Cantique de Jean Racine" Op. 11.

I'm still in the mood for a little more trumpet music. This selection is by G.P. Telemann, "Concert Sonata in D major - mvt 3". It is performed by Maurice Andre.

Last week it was my pleasure to present a performance by piano virtuoso Awadagin Pratt. I was just recently introduced to his work by Mark. Here he performs Brahms's "Op. 10 Ballade" Andante-Allegro. It is the second movement of the four-part composition.

My final post today was inspired by an interesting discussion i participated in on the PC Forum. Thanks Deborah for the interesting suggestion of playing this for folks who think that classical music is just "easy listening" to fall asleep to. Be sure you kick up the volume when you play it for the new listeners!

Gustav Holst - The Planets - Mars, the Bringer of War



Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Marvelous selections for Sunday Classical, Griffin, as usual. I thoroughly enjoyed them. But after finishing listening to them I realized that I should've listened to them in the opposite order, I mean, starting from Planet Mars: Bringer of War to Cantique de Jean Racine. Because, it's 12:30 am now when I decided to finish listening to your selections before going to sleep. So, I started from Gabriel Faure and felt as being showered by happiness and peace. This feeling continued through the next pieces, but as I finished off with 'Bringer of War' it threw me in a horrible battleground. It's really strong and horrifying enough to drive away my sleepiness completely laugh

Hya dudes and dudettes, Griffin, your absolutely correct.
Rupak , yes you are absolutely correct too, I should not mention him again, and should instead be getting on with something a little more alive like the next piece of music.

Recaredo you are correct as well, thanks.

Polyphasicpianist, it appears that RG may have written all the songs you posted about eurovision, unfortunately englebert is also dead he just doesnt know it yet, so this helps him perform better..and if he belives in the commonwealth then he should share his wealth with the common people a little, but that isnt going to happen.

Pianojoy.,what a joy to be reminded of helena bonham carter whom I wish for my personal patron at some point when the injunction runs out and I am allowed to email her again.

For those not in the commonwealth or those to poor to own a telly or those with all their savings tied up in euros ( I told you not to didnt I? How many times did I say "no euros?")

Here is a picture of helena bonham carter, Happy birthday helena...

Griffin, I love The Planets! Got to hear it last year performed by the Portland (Maine) Symphony Orchestra. It was a pricey night but worth every penny.

Rossy, nice to see you back!
