I'm more into rock/pop music. I listen to Elton John (duh! ;\) ), Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, The Beatles. I listen to the radio a lot - classic rock and modern rock. (Good Charlotte, Red Hot Chili Peppers) I also like music by Angelo Badalamenti. He composes soundtracks. He works with director David Lynch. (David is also in an industrial rock group called Blue Bob) Here at work, I tend to listen to the radio on my boombox. I'm also one of those who channel surf. \:\)

I have also heard the cello and piano concerto, all three of them are on the same disc. I haven't heard the others yet, must try to find them.

I've heard he recently wrote a horn concerto, but that has AFAIK not been recorded yet.

Great band! Bill Kirchen has got to be one of the best Telecaster players around- next to the late Danny Gatton at any rate. I took guitar lessons from a fellow who actually filled in for Bill Kirchen on a Lost Planet Airmen tour of the pAcific coast back in the early '70's. Aside from the raucous road stories about the band tour he had nothing but praise for the musicality and keyboard brillance of Commander Cody.

There's a huge amount of music on these discs - Schumann, Brahms, Dvorak, Borodin, Prokofiev, Franck, Debussy, Wagner, Rossini, Beethoven Cherubini...you get the idea...great box for work -- that compressed sound actually is a bonus.

Jolly: LOL

Gryphon: We've been here before, and Billy Cobham rules me.

Right now I'm listening to Neil Peart pound out the Rhythm Method, but shortly I will be driving around to the sounds of Mahavishnu Orchestra with Billy Cobham and his ambidextrous ways.

I think I mentioned this all in the piano forum before, but what the heck, some of my favorite music:

Transendental Etudes
Chopin Etudes/Preludes (Evgeny Kissin, and Bodini)
Rach, Bach, and Bartok (sorry, sounded better than it looks)
I enjoy listening to any good piano performer (classical, no rag time please).

What's usually in my car? Not relaxing music...
nooooooo
must.... drive..... agressively!

Rush, Rush, and more Rush
Police
Talking Heads
Radiohead
fIREHOSE (great band btw)
Steely Dan
Pretty much anything with remarkable drumming in it.

Let's not forget the Cars .... and other fine 80's music

Of course aside from the Police and Rush, any solo projects that Neil Peart, or Stewart Copeland have done are also key (Oysterhead)

All in all I guess my tastes are pretty eclectic. Hope I haven't caused anyone to lose faith or respect in me.

KB, you like drummers? I've got some awesome Tony Williams, too. I've seen Carl Palmer and Bill Bruford, both of whom blew me away. Also Chester Thompson (who by the way also plays some mean keyboards as well).

Your mention of Mahavishnu Orchestra brings back a lot of memories. I've been listening to them, Shakti, and various incarnations of John McLaughlin's musical pairings since Birds of Fire, when I was in high school in the early 70's. In MO's music McLaughlin will call out sections like: improvise for 32 measures based on your birth: Virgo, Dorian mode, Gemini, Lydian mode, etc.

Wow...

those guys do amaze me

I had the chance to see a Terry Bozio clinic here last year, and he absolutely blew my mind away.

Akira Jimbo was supposed to be here last month, but our blizzard scared him away. He's another one who's amazingly fun to watch. He has triggers all over his kit, and essentially becomes a one man band.

Jeff Procaro is another one who really impresses me... as well as Carter Bueford from the Dave Mathews Band.

I really enjoy listening to good drummers, but Neil Peart and Stewart Copeland still do it for me more than any others. Still can't figure out my love affair with them, but they rock.

Unfortunately that's usually true.

Many drummers are merely metronomes rather than musicians.

Although you might want to watch it calling drummers untalented.... as the piano is a percussion instrument rather than a string instrument.

Two drummers walk into a bar...
which is funny because you would have figured the second one would have seen the first guy do it.

What do Ginger Baker and 7-11 coffee have in common?
They both suck without Cream.

A drummer, tired from being ridiculed by his peers, decides to learn how to play some "real" musical instruments. He goes to a music store, walks in, approaches the store clerk, and says "I'll take that red trumpet over there and that accordian."
The store clerk looks at him a bit funny, and replies "OK, you can have the fire extinguisher but the radiator's got to stay".

A guy walks into a shop.
"You got one of them Marshall Hiwatt AC30 amplificatior thingies and a Gobson StratoBlaster geetar with a Fried Rose tremulo?"
"You're a drummer, aren't you?"
"Duh, yeah. How'd you know?"
"This is a travel agency."

What is the difference between a chiropodist and Ginger Baker?
A chiropodist bucks up your feet!

How many drummers does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
Five: one to screw in the light bulb and four to talk about how much better Neil Peart would have done it!

Why do guitarists put drumsticks on the dash of their car?
So they can park in the handicapped spot.

How is a drum solo like a sneeze?

Lunasa is celtic, McKennitt is celticish, Card is a Christian musician, and this CD has a celtic flavor. It appears you happen to have picked out some recent celtic music. In addition to classical I listen to celtic, bluegrass, blues, new age, and lots of jazz. Thrown in there is other stuff that I don't know how to describe, such as Tangerine Dream and Mannheim Steamroller. I have excellent taste in music. \:D

Michael Card reminds me of a Canadian folk music group called Barde. They performed back in the mid 70's at the University of Chicago Folkfest. I have a couple of their albums.

I'm listening to some Clementi sonatas performed by Pietro Spada, not my favorite pianist, but one who has done a great deal to bring some early music to light.

I have never heard Michael Card but I do know Barde. I too saw them back in the 70's and have both their albums. Very good band. In fact after I bought my audio burner they were one of the

Renauda,

Wow! I thought I was the only Barde fan in North America. Their music has held up pretty well. They were quite a compelling group, sorry they broke up.

No actually there are quite a few Barde fans from around Edmonton. Particularly so because we host the 2nd or 3rd largest Folk Festival ( Edmonton Folk Music Festival )in North America. Celtic type music is extremely popular here. \:\)

Any of you remember Canadian folk/pop singer when Valdy organized a cross Canada tour of Canadian folk and pop performers some years ago (maybe 10 years ago) - and Barde reunited for that tour. That's the last I heard of them. Their sound was much more electric then from what I remember of them in the 70's. I believe they were a French Canadian group - and much of their music had a French folk flair. They were excellent if you liked Celtic folk music(which I do)

To be sure our house was indeed blessed with their good company and spirit 'til the wee hours of the morning. One is from St. John's and the other is from some little village on "The Rock".

jazz is GREAT. I heard Diane Schuur recently in concert & LOVED her!! I have almost all of Sanborn's recordings.. but i guess he is really blues...

The U of C folkfest was typicaly held in winter, and I think that added something to the warmth and spirit of the music held in Mandel Hall. It was a good time for exploration of early music as well as folk music. Barde was one of several groups performing. I think they may have performed at more than one year.

There was a duo performing, one performer of whom was named "Duck Donald"...honest!

I still have some tapes that I'd like to transfer to CD -- the closing of the Earl of Old Town and some highlights from the folk fests of those years -- must get around to it -- before I sound too much like my parents.

Bizarre!!! I vaguely ( ;\) ) remember seeing Duck Donald at a tiny Folk Festival near Calgary in about 1976 or 77. What really stands out from that festival was the impromptu Bluegrass jam that just happened. It was the first time I had ever seen anyone play a Dobro- I was hooked there after and had to learn to play.

Then I recommend Altan, and of course the Chieftans. There's lots of good Celtic music besides and we can discuss in email if you wish. There's Celtic rock, too, like Wolfstone. Then there's people who take the various pipes to a different level like Davy Spillane. (By different pipes I mean there are several different types of "bagpipes.") Kind of like Bela Fleck does with the banjo.

As for jazz I am a huge Jean Luc Ponty fan(atic). Also Acoustic Alchemy, Ancient Future, Rippingtons, Craig Chaquico, Peter White, Dave Brubeck...too, too many to name. None of those have vocals. If you let me know your postal address (in email) I'll send you something that will change your mind about Tangerine Dream. \:D

Thanks for the Celtic recommendations -- I'll look into them. Thanks for the Tangerine Dream offer, but I'd hate to waste you money on postage for something I may not like. Just curious, what is it? -- it may be available online where I can just sample it.
It was a nice offer, though.

The Rippingtons are nice, too! I've heard of Ancient Future, but can't place anything they've done at the moment. I guess that Peter White & Craig Chaquico are the only 2 I'm not familiar with -- I'll look into them, too!

Hey Renauda (and maybe kluurs)

I'm listening to Morgaine Le Fay. Ever hear of them? They are out of someplace in Canada...can't remember where. I know their agents were in Fergus, Ontario, but... Up She Flew[/b] is the only CD they made as far as I know:



I saw them live several years ago at a festival. The following year the music booker told me they had split up. The CD is good, but live they kicked ass! (Can I say that here?) They play hard celtic (not as rock as Wolfstone). They play(ed) a combination of traditional and original music.
Posted by: Renauda

Re: Music – what are you listening to right now? - 05/14/03 07:48 PM

No, can't say I have heard of them. I'll ask a buddy of mine this weekend who is up on the celtic/folk bands.

Have you heard "La Volee d'Castors" (literally: Flock of Beavers) from Montreal? I recommend their disc "Par monts et par vaux". Their website is http://www.vdc.qc.ca/accueil/accueil.html

That's a really cool band that combine celtic, La Francophonie and Klezmer. If anyone can sit still to their music they must be catatonic!
Posted by: gryphon

Re: Music – what are you listening to right now? - 05/14/03 09:49 PM

I had not heard of them, but I just visited their website and viewed their videos (gotta love broadband)! Belle embarquez! was fun. Le feuillard/Rail Reel was certainly interesting. They're speaking some ferin' language, but best I can figure out a girl married some short guy. In her disappointment she murdered him by setting a straw-filled bed on fire. Then she married a big guy and everything was wonderful. Which goes to show, size *is* important to women.

I'd buy a CD or two, but they want $20 US per CD and $7 shipping! \:\(

Blackmore's Night, "Live: Past Times with Good Company" Ritchie Blackmore was the original gutarist for Deep Purple. Now in his old age he has turned to more traditional acoustic music with a Medieval/Renaissance feel. A bit like Pentangle and other Brit folk/rock bands of the 60's. Very listenable and not without that distnct "Purple" edge. ;\)

Believe it or not I am a survivor of not one but three live DP concerts. The first concert I saw predated Machine Head and the notorius Smoke on the Water. Blackmore was approaching his prime and to watch him play was like watching a Martial Arts display with a wall of sound. I've often thought that his contribution to the art of the electric guitar is all too often forgotten. IF you have ever heard an interview with him that too is interesting. He speaks more like an Oxford Don than an originator of heavy metal guitar.

Yes! Back in their prime. I have great 35MM shots from the 2nd row! (I had a ticket connection). \:D Chicago. It was awesome. You can see the waveforms on Keith's old Moog (in the later years that was just for show). I might be persuaded to scan a few in to post here. Actually I have about 20 pounds of pictures of everybody from Alice Cooper to Zappa. All front row stuff.

Having never heard of this I looked it up on amazon. Aside from astounding me by costing $64 US, the first reviewer stated:

"While I am open to a great variety of musical genres and styles, and can be considered among the staunch defenders of 20th century "classical music", I can not help but consider the opus as a worthless disaster. Meant by its composer to be the greatest piece of music ever written, it even failed in sending him to the most appropriate final destination: the funny farm. This is pure anti-musical excrement."

And there are no musical excerpts for me to listen to. \:\(

Argerich's recording of "Gaspard de la Nuit" and Prokofiev 3rd Concerto(rapturous)
Anything by Tori Amos (Goddess of voice and piano)
Anything by Bjφrk (Amazing voice, amazing compositions)
Radiohead (wonderfully experimental)
"4-Track Demos" by PJ Harvey (what a raw album!)
Led Zeppelin (these guys are the top of the hierarchy of hard rock for me!)
The Beatles (who doesn't like at least ONE of their songs? [I like many more than that])

Much more, but who can remember it all?

Just listening to Bach's Christmas Oratorio right now, and am amazed at the quality of it's composition.

It's one I frequently forget about, but is another demonstration of "inspired music" much like Handel's Messiah.

Or course this will soon inevitably be replaced by some Rush, and I will spend the rest of the day air-drumming.

Re: Music – what are you listening to right now? - 06/15/03 05:54 PM

johnmoonlight,

First check out "OK Computer". That is probably their most accessible album. If you want to get more familiar with them after that, then I would suggest getting "Kid A" (which is my favourite by them). "Amnesiac" is also fantastic. Their older albums ("Pablo Honey" and "The Bends") are also very good, but "Pablo Honey" (their first) is very "poppy", while "The Bends" delves a bit more into alternative. Their new one is also great.
Posted by: KlavierBauer

Re: Music – what are you listening to right now? - 06/16/03 12:49 PM

Yeah, hard to recommend one Radiohead album, as each is representitive of a different side of the band. I don't think any of their music is "poppy". But the album D's refers to is definitely structured more that way.

The first track off of Hail to the Thief (their new album) is a pretty good taste of the organized chaos that Radiohead is.

If you're in a bad way sometime.... listen to Let Down.

Renauda, that is one of my all-time favorite albums.

If I am not mistaken, there is a track on it where Emmylou Harris laments the loss of the "living room" - the causal joy that can be found in making music with friends - in our relentless quest for perfection.

She has a point.

Are you familiar with the Seldom Scene?

Re: Music – what are you listening to right now? - 07/07/03 01:15 AM

We share the same. It is one of my favourites too. I love the Nashville Blues, Tennessee Stud ahh... the whole damn album!! I'll check out the Emmy Lou track- but I don't think she played on Vol. I just Vol II and she sang Mary Danced With Soldiers.

I have virtually all the Seldom Scene's recordings, attended two festivals where they played and even jammed with Mike Auldridge and Ben Eldridge.

Could the picture on the Cirlce Album be of:

Porter, David Dixon: (1813-1891; Lieutenant, Commander, Rear Admiral) For the command of the Mississippi Squadron; for vital assistance given the Army in the Vicksburg campaign; for the command of the North Atlantic Blockading Squadron; for the Fort Fisher and Wilmington campaign.

Renauda, I'm just finding out this evening from the various threads that you are into bluegrass. Didn't know. I have a brother who plays mandolin in a bluegrass band in NH:
Cardigan Mountain Tradition

I like it, but more so if I can hear it live.

I was cleaning out my room last weekend and found a live recording my brother gave me 5 or so years ago. If I do say so myself, I think they sounded pretty good. So now I'm trying to get their group to come down to NY and do a concert for our local arts group this fall. It's going to be difficult trying to coordinate their schedules I think.

People who don't know bluegrass at least now know "Man of Constant Sorrow" since it was featured in Oh Brother, Where Art Thou[/b]. Current famous, faster "bluegrass" versions have been done by Ralph Stanley or Union Station, but this song actually predates bluegrass since it was first published in 1913 and bluegrass was "invented" later. Bill Monroe is the father of bluegrass---hard, fast, and a high, lonesome sound.

Check our Bill Monroe; Stanley Brothers; Lester Flatt, Earl Scruggs & The Foggy Mountain Boys; newer artists would include JD Crowe, Ricky Scaggs, or Del McCoury for example.

Re: Music – what are you listening to right now? - 07/11/03 12:57 PM

I know that song, "Man of Constant Sorrow. Come to think of it, I thoroughly enjoyed the "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" soundtrack, except for that song. That song, which everyone else raved about, is one of the most annoying songs I've heard. It sounds like modern country (which I for the most part despise) trying to be not-so-modern. Horrific.

However, the rest of the soundtrack I thought was amazing. It was beautiful. Is that all bluegrass?

Gryphon's suggestions are first rate and there is little I could add other than Doc Watson, Tony Rice and some Peter Rowan's discs. Instrumental vituosity is a hallmark of Bluegrass music. Listen to the instrumental breaks if you are turned off by the vocals and steady I,IV,V chord progressions. Playing Bluegrass is a bit like playing Bach on the piano- you have to be dead on rythmically or a train wreck occurs. Often at Allegro con moto or Prestissimo speeds. Once you have the ear for what the instrumehtalists are doing then listen to the vocal harmonies- they are polyphonic. Many modern Bluegrass players are evolving in to Jazz musicians becuase of their superior technique and mastery of their instruments. Too bad I'm not there... yet. \:D

It sounds like you would enjoy the instrumental bluegrass songs (Foggy Mountain Breakdown, Orange Blossom Special, etc.), but those vocals are a trademark, signature style of bluegrass. I understand what you mean about a certain country sound, but if you notice it is "different," not poor, double-wide, hillbilly hick (is that offensive enough? \:D )

Yesterday (Saturday, because I'm in Oregon), my passion was re-ignited for Tori Amos' "Little Earthquakes". I hadn't listened to it for a number of months, and the first song, I was singing at the top of my lungs, lost in some strange magnetic catharsis that always takes over whenever I listen to that album.

It very well may be the best album ever recorded.

I love it passionately and without end.

I've been listening to Elton John's "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" set again. I played it so much when I was a senior in high school I wore out the LPS and had to buy another set.

I think I'm listening to it again because I've been feeling a bit nostalgic lately, a little unsettled, wondering where I'm going to, etc., etc. Like I need a "...couple of vodka and tonics...". Usually happens this time of year, mid-summer--always seems so intense, esp. in the city. Can't wait for my vacation to come! 2 more weeks to go and then it's music camp for a week far away in Maine!

It is so much fun. Doesn't sound too great thanks to my lack of talent and my nonadjustable CD player but it's a blast.

You might seek out the "Will the Circle be Unbroken" CD that Renauda showed in a thread above. It's representative of a more "modern" style of bluegrass - mixed more like pop music with more mellow vocals than the traditional. I like the traditional vocals too, but they are an acquired taste.

"Circle" and "Circle 2" are both compilations of various artists, and I'll bet if you sample them you will find a couple of songs/styles that you like.

Gryphon,

Didn't know you were a bluegrass fan!

Though no real country music fan, I do like bluegrass. Guess we do have something in common? ;\)

Quite a few years ago, I went to a local Doc Watson concert. For the life of me now, I can't remember the name of the song, (just the tune) but he sang it alone acapella. I remember thinking at the time just what a pure, beautiful, haunting voice he had, especially when you hear him in person. You could get lost in it, just listening to him. To me, it was the best thing in the concert.

I do especially like the fast, instrumental bluegrass songs. I appreciate just how intricate, and disciplined the music can be.

Yep. There's a bluegrass festival that I attend sometimes. One year the highlight was to be Bill Monroe. Unfortunately he took sick after a Chicago concert preceding our outdoor festival so he was in the hospital and only his band played. Bill died shortly afterwards and I never did get to see him live. \:\(

gryphon,

Just a tidbit of my personal trivia info. I have been on stage (if you want to call it that) with Bill Monroe's brother. If I recall, it's Charlie Monroe?

Years ago when Hee Haw! was in its heyday on TV, my church put together our own rendition of the show at church. It was complete with all the characters on the show and the popular country music stars of the time. A local, (many church members) country/bluegrass band, and anyone who we could muster who could play participated. It was a blast involving people of all ages. We even had someone's kid dressed up as the dog for "Gloom, dispare, and agony on me". The show was so successful that we were inticed to expand it and do it at a local high school auditorium, then at a local theater.

At one of the shows, Charlie Monroe made a guest appearance and sang. I'm not sure how or who managed it. We still have a tape of the show which we now look at occasionally marveling how good we looked then, and how old we look now! \:\(

I've been obsessed lately with Alexander Tutunov's recording of the Lev Abeliovich Sonatas and Frescoes (which is the first double-disc set in a collection of so far three [the second will be released soon, and the third has yet to be mastered] releases by Altarus records of Abeliovich's piano works --Tutunov has a contract to do the collection). It's really beautiful, amazing music, but not at all popular. If you can get a copy, go for it. It's profound.

Ever since she packs an hour or so into each evening around that time.

Which has become quite sacred tradition for her by now.

And she sounds just great.

Well, after a summer consisting of a Steely Dan concert, and a Radiohead concert, I'm sitting here listening to the Goonies soundtrack.
I think it's one of the only Spielberg flicks that didn't have that rat thief John Williams do the soundtrack (Goonies was done by Dave Grusin).

Got tickets today for the Echo and the Bunnymen concert here on Halloween ... so there will be a lot of that being listened to in the next few days.

for those of you not familiar with Echo and the Bunnymen, listen to the Donnie Darko soundtrack (or just rent the movie, it's a good one).

You can't display an image from your hard drive, it has to be somewhere on the web.

It's pretty easy to post an image, though. Find the image you want to display here in the forum somewhere on the web (amazon.com, for instance). Right click the image and select properties to display the url for the image. You can highlight the url and copy it from the properties dialog box. Then paste the url into the piano forum message box and surround it with the following commands:

[img] url [/img]

except do not allow spaces between the bracketed commands and the url.

It should look something like this:

[IMG] http://www.website.com/image.jpg [/IMG]

(again, without the spaces. I had to leave them in place for this example or it wouldn't display.)

Thanks, Gryphon!

(You're always so prompt with requests I'm starting to wonder if your address is North Pole.)

P.S. I found Thibaudet's comments about Satie's work very interesting. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to listen to any of the samples except for the Gym. 1. I can't wait to hear the Gnoss. 7.

What Gryphon showed is a 1-disc extract of the complete Satie recording which is a 5-disc CD set. The liner notes are interesting, detailing the development of Satie's style.

I've only ever heard Satie performed once in a live recital. That was a performance of "Sports et divertissements" given by Thibaudet's teacher, Aldo Ciccolini. Ciccolini produced a famous multi-album set of Satie's piano music 30 years ago. I think only a 2-CD extract of that LP set has re-appeared. His approach is also very good.

I noticed the 5 disc set on the web. I've enjoyed the Ciccolini LPs in my collection for many years. I'm particularly interested to see how Thibaudet's interpretations differ from Ciccolini after having studied with him. I've found in my own playing that I can play most Satie in endlessly differing variations, each of which can seem musically valid and all of them enjoyable to explore. I seldom play Satie the same way twice. Satie's limited use of dynamics markings and oblique prosaic suggestions pose an intriguing enigma.

I missed this post. Me and the old lady used to watch those girls in the Village and the East Village before they became semi-famous and discombobulated. They couldn't hit a wrong note. Sassy and sexy. And their slap happy antics between songs was almost as much fun as the singing.

The definitive (in my humble opinion) Chopinist. Her account of the Nocturne in e minor, Op. 72 No. 1 is the finest I've ever heard. If you go to Amazon and do a search you'll come across a review of this CD written by a friend of mine -- he is better at descriptions than I am. Anyway, she really deserves wider recognition.

Has something of a Gaugin feel about it, but I expect it is Diego Rivera. I endorse kathy with a k's selection. Cool music.

Re: Music – what are you listening to right now? - 01/13/04 09:45 AM

I do love that cover painting! Bernard, JF is correct, it is Diego Rivera. Better look out, someone will be labelling you a commy showing appreciation for Diego's art. On a sidenote, when we were doing college tours this fall, during the Yale tour we saw this huge stained glass window in the cathedral-like library which was designed by Diego. The guide pointed out an ever so tiny hammer and sickle in one corner of the piece. He got his little dig in! BTW, see the movie, Frieda if you haven't already!

The Korngold piece is sort of a crossroads from Richard Strauss, Claude Debussy and Edward Elgar to Busoni, John Williams and Robert Farnon. A lot more interesting than most of its derivitive roots, done with considerable talent by composer and performers alike. This one features the incredibly clean Marc-Andre Hamelin, left hand only.

yes it is well worth the listen. But the real treat -absolutely marvelous music - is Higdon's "Blue Cathedral"... I can't say enough good things about this whole CD. A rewarding mix of somethings familiar and others not. This is not the "difficult contemporary" music that most associate with, say, ear bending dissonance and such. check it out !

There's a Roxy Music EP that came out in the early 80's - think it was called "Musique". Recoded live at Glasgow's Apollo. Excellent! I transferred 2 of the tracks (Neil Young's "Like a Hurricane" and Lennon's "Jealous Guy") onto my computer a while back so I don't have to keep dragging my turntable out.

I remember that EP. I used to have it but with all the moving around it somehow went astray. Actually on the Live Renuion Tour disc I posted above they do play Lennon's Jealous Guy as well as some their more artsy tunes from Roxy's first two albums in the early 70's when Eno was still with the band.

"Alabama Blue's" by St. Germain. I guess I'm on sort of an electronic music trip today. I was all set to go out last night to our local music festival, where there was actually a place playing electronic music (the land I live in, teeming with people who only support country music, it's so friggin weird). When I got there the place was shut down. Apparently, one of their advertisements hade the word "rave" in it. Anyway, threats were made to the esablishment that was to host this event, and the entire weekend of shows (at this particular place) was cancelled.

Well, I've had a bit of a dry spell in finding something I really enjoy but that was broken today. I found a couple of great recordings -- some Bach Cantatas by Ton Koopman - Volume 2.

The real find is a delightful recording of Schumann by Pletnev. It's well recorded - superbly played. I hope he does some of the other major Schumann works.

The Journey of Chris Strachwitz (Arhoolie Records 40th Anniversary Colleciton 1960 - 2000.

Individual recordings of backwoods diverse musicians... from the swiss yodelers to the Mexicans, to French in Canada. Harmonicas, fiddles piano, flamenco guitars, blues, jazz, rock, San Francisco bars, to the Louisiana bayous.

A great musical compilations of 40 years of recordings of otherwise non-recorded artists...

Boy, I must be an old jaded musician. I almost never listen to recordings of anything anymore. I don't go to as many concerts as I'd like, but I'd say I do more listening at concerts than I do on recordings these days. For this, I have NYC's active concert life to thank.

The last concert I remember was Muhal Richard Abrams (piano) and George Lewis (trombone, composer), in May. Two disclaviers were also involved. Great performances.

Last recording I heard that was really memorable: Michael Byron's "Awakening at the Inn of the Birds" (string quartet) on the Cold Blue label. A quite recent work.

There is one spot on the net where you can here Komen playing.

Link

This is in Dutch and has him playing Beethoven' Op 109. It start at about 5:26 into the interview. If you don't speak Dutch that might be a bummer.

In any event the Beethoven sonata cycle that he is recording for Globe is worth every penny. So is his recording of the Beethoven Cello/Piano sonatas... Great stuff from a great pianist.

I like the Fortepiano. In many respects, I prefer it to the modern concert grand. I think it enormously helpful (though not necessarily definitive) to hear the music on original instruments... brings out different qualities and colors.

Steve: Is Dolly doing more Bluegrass on that disc? I have a previous one of hers on which she is almost exclusively Bluegrass. I really like that one too. I think a friend of mine has the one you posted- if I recollect correctly I enjoyed it. I guess at the stage of her career she can do whatever she pleases.

It's about half bluegrass, and about half what you might call "mountain" or "folk" music.

She actually says that on the Heartsongs CD - now that she doesn't need the money any more she can do the songs that she likes. That might be the one you have, or perhaps her other Bluegrass one - "The Grass is Blue."

I like the trend toward improved production quality on bluegrass CD's. I know it's not traditional, but modern multi-track recordings can really being out the harmonies without burying the individual musicians. The move to better vocalists hasn't hurt either ;\) .

Dolly's part of a trio on one track of this CD, you might like it, too:




She does George Jones' "Where Grass Won't Grow" along with Emmylou Harris and Trisha Yearwood - a beautiful blending of voices. The most memorable line on that CD though, is where Keith Richards (it's a compilation of various people doing George Jones songs) says he feels like "A pig in a room full of angels."

That's kinda how he sounds, too.

Ornstein, who died a couple of years ago at the age of 108, wrote the work after reading a newspaper account of such an event around 1912 or 1918 (not sure of the date and I'm too lazy to look it up right now). It's a wildly breathtaking bit of musical painting --an eery and highly evocating work. Give it and Ornstein a listen sometime. Good stuff.

No doubt, he's a brilliant pianist of the first order. I love his Schumann recording a great deal. There is nothing to criticize, imo, about his playing. Give him a listen.

Re: Music – what are you listening to right now? - 08/30/04 08:34 AM



This recording rocks!

==
Review from Andante.com:

was in the music of Brahms that Franηois-Frιdιric Guy made his debut on Naοve, in a much-discussed version of the two Cello Sonatas with Anne Gastinel. Now he confirms his position among the most eminent performers of the central German repertoire with this new CD, his first with orchestra: the monumental Second Piano Concerto of the same composer. This work of 1881 is truly colossal, not only because of its length of almost fifty minutes, with four movements rather than the usual three, but above all because of the huge range of technical and interpretative skills it demands of the pianist. A musician capable of taking in his stride the fearsome trills and double octaves of the first two movements will not necessarily have the tenderness required by the Andante, nor the humour for the playful finale. It is a tribute to the artistic maturity of Franηois-Frιdιric Guy that his exceptionally well-rounded, considered performance has already been compared to the historic models of Schnabel and Fleisher. And the parallel is all the more remarkable in that this is a live recording, taped in concert in London in May 2003, with ideal partners in the shape of the great Brahmsian Paavo Berglund and the London Philharmonic Orchestra with its magnificent horn and cello soloists. "

Plays and JohnnyM,

No we haven't played it yet. Although it is a great piece, when we do get around to playing a big Brahms 2 piano work I want to start with the Sonata in F minor. It later became the famous piano quintet but as a two piano sonata it is simply amazing. It also had a previous life as a string quartet. All versions by the composer.

If we do play it, I'll be sure to let you know!!

After reading through the "Who's Out" thread, I had to put on this album. It just seemed... well, perfect.



My baby don't care for shows
My baby don't care for clothes
My baby just cares for me
My baby don't care for cars and races
My baby don't care for high-tone places

Liz Taylor is not his style
And even Lana Turner's smile
Is somethin' he can't see
My baby don't care who knows
My baby just cares for me

Baby, my baby don't care for shows
And he don't even care for clothes
He cares for me
My baby don't care
For cars and races
My baby don't care for
He don't care for high-tone places

Liz Taylor is not his style
And even Liberace's smile
Is something he can't see
Is something he can't see
I wonder what's wrong with baby
My baby just cares for
My baby just cares for
My baby just cares for me

AOL has two cuts from this CD (scheduled release in October), accessible from their start page - "It's a Wonderful World" and "Time After Time".

I want it. The piano on "It's a Wonderful World" sounds especially nice, and Rod Stewart's voice sounds a lot better than I remember it sounding in the past.

These are just wonderful. Then I really love all of the Bach transcriptions I've ever heard. It's hard to imagine improving on Bach, but I somehow imagine that if Bach had had the modern piano at his disposal, he would have written these himself. I also really appreciate Piers Lane.

Coheed & Cambria
In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth 3

The lyrics follow. Some of you may insist that I must be kidding. Why indeed would I bother listening to a kid’s song? Why indeed.

"In Keeping Secrets Of Silent Earth: 3"

A broad incision sits across the evening
The victim to our fathers lost war
The restless children sit and mourn the graves
Of those they've never seen before
Will they be buried here among the dead?
In the silent secret

[Chorus:]
The pioneers
In dealing with it they march for dawn, of Will and worthy
The truth be told the child was born
Man your own jackhammer
Man your battle stations
We'll have you dead pretty soon
And now

Sincerely written from my brother's blood machine
Man your battle stations
We'll have you home pretty soon
And now

Awake through motion with curiosity to curtain your first move
Over arms length they'll break protocol
Jealous envy for the youngest one
To be the hero is all I'll ask
Can I be buried here among the dead?
With room to honor me here in the end
You'll be better off too soon
You'll be better off when you get home

[Chorus]

For you,
I'd do anything just to make you happy, hear you tell me that you’re proud of me
For them,
I'll kill anything cut the throats of babies for them break their hearts for they were them
Waiting for you to say: I love you too

The navigator
The pilot
Her favorite
The one they call the vision that bears the gift
[x2]

Will,
Do the children really understand the things you did to them?
And why oh why…
Should they conjure up the will for you my love I would kill him
we're coming home pretty soon
Coming home

In the seventh turning hour
Will the victims shadow fall?
Should the irony grow hungry?
With the victory and all they sought for
We were one among the fence
One among the fence

[Guitar riffs and vocalizing]

We're coming home

Man your own jackhammer
Man your battle stations
We'll have you dead pretty soon
And now

Sincerely written from my brother's blood machine
Man your battle stations
We'll have you home pretty soon
Tonight

Yes, that'll resize the photo, but that completely ignores the purpose of using smaller images--speed of loading. Using your way the entire large image still has to be downloaded, then resized. There is zero savings in speed. Of course, how many people use modems hooked to their telephone lines any more? (I don't). Maybe I am living in the past and worrying about things that are no longer a factor.

Ocasionally. I used to love Billy Joel. Maybe his piano stuff subconciously got me into piano. But I'm happy to listen to whatever anyone else is listening to as long as it's not country or rap/hiphop. You turn those on and I'm not a happy camper. ;\) Which is unfortunate because the bus I ride plays some very obscene hiphop stuff every day.

That's probably them. A few weeks ago I was at the Austin City Limits Festival and got to see them for a few minutes as I was on my way to the shuttle pick up point (and the line was incredibly long). From the few songs I heard, they seemed really good live, and I met quite a few people there who had bought "one-day passes" for the sole purpose of seeing them.

The review that was attached to it went something like "I can't think of another band who's name more accurately describes their sound". It's kind of mellow but, at points, strangely reminiscent of "WWII pop music".

Here's the video clip for the lyrics I posted:

Link

Ju-ju-ju-ju-just like that bad guy
From Lethal Weapon 2
I've got diplomatic immunity, so Hammer, you can't sue
I can write graffiti, even jaywalk in the street
I can riot, loot, not give a hoot
and touch your sister's teat
Can't touch me

Adam West: What in God's name is he doing?
Cleveland: I believe that's the worm.

Stop! Peter-time!
I'm a big shot, there's no doubt
Light a fire and pee it out
Don't like it, kiss my rump
Just for a minute let's all do the Bump

Yeah do the Peter Griffin bump
Can't touch me

I'm Presidential Peter, interns think I'm hot
Don't care if you're handicapped, I'll still park in your spot
I've been around the world, from Hartford to Back Bay
It's Peter, go Peter, MC Peter, yo Peter, let's see Regis rap this way
Can't touch me

I find her playing completely passionless and her phrasing, especially with Chopin, leaves much to be desired. It's just so... boring. It's like she learns as many pieces as she can without worrying about how they sound.

I'm so glad someone else does not approve of Biret. I agree with your comments valarking - I find that she hops, especially in her album of Chopin's waltzes. (I don't know if anyone knows what I mean by hopping; in my opinion it is when the pianist plays rubato to such an extreme that the piece sounds almost in compound time, somehow. She does this perfectly in one of the waltzes, I forget which one). She also plays everything far too fast and seemingly with no emotion whatsoever. And she has scary hands.

A fun album by a NY glam band that pushes all the buttons on their 70's/80's keyboard. One chestnut: a version of Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb reworked as Bee Gees/Frankie Goes to Hollywood-style discorama. It's hysterical, but at the same time works so well you'd never guess it wasn't written that way. This is not an album of covers, though. The rest is well-written original material that displays the band's chops.

Serkin recorded this about 25 years ago - and I've been waiting...and waiting...and waiting for it to appear on CD - finally, it is here. The recording shows some evidence of its age - but is still a great recording of this work. Many have said this is "the" recording. I'm not sure - but it is frighteningly close. I still love the Osborne - but truth be told that is partly the quality of the recording itself. Still, the performance in this one is a great one - by a very committed pianist - and at a budget price.

Because Sir Davies turned 70 this week and because it's a brilliant concerto.

Check it out.

Review note:

"Maxwell Davies has written a concerto which struck me as a 1990s equivalent of the Bliss piano concerto of the late 1930s. The Bliss summed up, in a valid contemporary idiom, the romantic era of piano concertos from Liszt to Rachmaninov, with a dash of Stravinsky ΰ la Petrushka, whereas Maxwell Davies, in his individual way, sums up the era of Bartσk and Prokofiev. But, remembering his soloist's specialist field, he has written an exquisite slow movement, which pays homage, although not slavishly, to Faurι. And there is plenty of quirky Max himself, of course.

The structure of each movement is concise and satisfying, there are good broad tunes for those who ask for nothing more, and the scoring, even allowing for an array of percussion, is beautifully calculated to allow the piano to dominate and also to have something with which to contrast its own percussive capabilities. The scoring for the woodwind and brass is never strident, always to the musical point.

It is one of the most attractive and immediately likeable piano concertos to appear for some some and I shall be both surprised and disappointed if other pianists do not take it up, although Miss Stott's performance must be regarded as definitive in its comprehensive grasp of the work's multi-faceted appeal.'

Re: Music – what are you listening to right now? - 11/23/04 06:43 PM

And now for something completely different:



Tegan and Sara are identical twin sisters from Vancouver, BC. They are also lesbians. (Why can I already imagine the thoughts going through some of you guys' minds?) This, their third album, shows off their very impressive songwriting talents. Most of the lyrics suggest the usual "I love you, I hate you, I love you" subject matter of pop songs. But these two lend a very hard-edged sensibility to the material, and with just a hint of the playfulness that made The Waitresses such a gas back in the day. The vocals can get a little tiring, mostly since they are mixed up a little too trebly for my taste. Overall, though, an extremely talented duo that bears watching.

Re: Music – what are you listening to right now? - 11/27/04 05:48 PM

This is one of my favorite CDs, I play it at least once a month:



It's not just the music, most of which is late romantic in that enigmatic period just before the Great War. Can anyone imagine what the world would have been like had that great catastrophe and the one following it had never happened? The playing is particularly good, perhaps the best Scriabin 5th I've ever heard; sensitive, nuanced, sexy. Also comes with a transcription of the slow movement from Mahler's 5th symphony.

John Bell Young, one of the best pianists around right now IMHO.

Infact, let me quote a quote of his from a posting in a newsgroup:
 Quote:
Here is what I advocate and believe the US should do without delay,
which is to say, play total hardball:.

1) The immediate suspension of all civil rights of foreign nationals
of Middle Eastern background. No exceptions.

2) The issuance of National Identity Cards to all native-born American
citizens, with specially marked cards for naturalized citizens,
especially those of middle eastern backgound ofof the Muslim faith,
whose movements and communications should be put under surveillance

3) The establishment of internment camps, with no limits on
detainment, for all suspicious foreign nationals and non-native
citizens of middle eastern descent.

4) Special Identity tags to be worn visibly at all times by Muslims
and all people of middle eastern descent.

5) The suspension of all visas to all Middle Eastern nationals, save
for pre-screened diplomats. medical professionals and mnown
suppliers of necessary imports..

6) The immediate closing of all Mosques throughout the US

7) The widespread strategic nuclear bombing of key middle eastern
states.

8) Broadening the powers of the police and military to allow them to
arrest suspicious middle eastern types on site.

9) Broadening the power that allows citizens to make citizens
arrests.

10) Rendering the expression of anti-semitism as a crime punishable
by death, and those who engage in such practices subject to arrest and
imprisonment. .


I do not consider these measures extreme in the least, but only
necessary to rid the country of the vermin and cockroaches that are
the fruit of that sick religion, and its spawn, the murderous
terrorists. I do not stand alone on this issue, as it is pretty plain
here that the vast nmajority of Americans feel pretty much the same
way, though many are either afraid or too politically correct to say
so. . And yes, you might say that, on this issue, my politics stand
somewhere to the far right of John Wayne. Nuke the ragheads!

JOHN BELL YOUNG
Also, I would like to point out that he accused an honest music critic by the name of Farhan Malik of having a rold in the 9/11 events. Image that. Working hard your whole life to make it as a music critic and getting shot down because of your race. Unbelievable.

I can't believe this, it must be a vicious canard, a charlatan posing as this young pianist. I have been in contact with him and he is only modestly interested in politics and I would have thought been a supporter of Kerry rather than Bush, in any case someone who hobnobbed with an assortment of Europeans and media types would be expected to hold fairly liberal views. I can't imagine him being any of the things so far ascribed to him. Although who knows? It could be true. But is a friend of Hugh Downs' going to hold such views or act this way? I doubt it. He also played some piano music of Nietzche on another album, very interesting.

If you want pretty definitive (I'd play a lot of these differently) performances of some of the more important intermediate level pieces, this is a must get. I am it seems building quite a library of piano recordings, maybe half my CD collection, so that's why I bought it.

Now onto something else...



These are seasoned classic jazz performances by one of the seminal figures in modern piano jazz, from 1959 and 1962. If you like jazz at all you need to hear this. If you love jazz, you know Oscar. The companion album that is also a must is,



also recorded in 1959. And of course there's,



which is a real gem. From circa 1965, It contains some masterpieces like L'Imposible. Blues Etude and Shelly's World (wonderful tune).

Nothin' but Dylan for the past 3-4 weeks. I'm hooked. There is no greater musical genius alive today, IMO.
I had my brother(who is a Dylan fanatic) put together a cd of what he considers to be Dylan's best songs. After listening to that for 2 weeks I used my Amazon.com gift certificate and purchased the following:
Blood on the Tracks, Live 1975, Blonde on Blonde, Oh Mercy, Time out of Mind, and Love and Theft. I already have live 1966 which is a masterpiece.
Dylan makes most modern music seem somewhat trite, IMO.

I went to a Dylan concert once.

It was one too many times.

It was the single worst concert I ever attended.

One of very few concerts I actually walked out on. Robert Plant's solo tour was another and a late 90's Genesis show was another.

Never understood why people think Dylan is a genius. I probably never will understand it.

I have seen him four times. Three were great. Once his backup band was The Band. Another time it was Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

He can be pretty awful live too. He takes chances and refuses to go out and perform a "formula" Dylan.

Exactly. He takes chances. Some of his live performances are masterpieces in their own regard. Listen to live 1966 sometime and you'll be blown away.
I think of Dylan as the Bach of our times. Those who disregard him probably don't really understand him. The first time I saw Dylan live, I hated the entire show. I didn't understand how Mr. Tamborine Man could sound so different from the original. Now I understand why he does it. His recordings only serve as a template.

Well, without diversity of opinion this world would be quite boring I suppose.

Johnny's in the basement
mixing up the medicine[/b]
I'm on the pavement
Thinking about the government
The man in the trench coat
Badge out, laid off
Says he's got a bad cough
Wants to get it paid off
Look out kid
It's somethin' you did
God knows when
But you're doin' it again
You better duck down the alley way
Lookin' for a new friend
The man in the coon-skin cap
In the big pen
Wants eleven dollar bills
You only got ten

Maggie comes fleet foot
Face full of black soot
Talkin' that the heat put
Plants in the bed but
The phone's tapped anyway
Maggie says that many say
They must bust in early May
Orders from the D. A.
Look out kid
Don't matter what you did
Walk on your tip toes
Don't try "No Doz"
Better stay away from those
That carry around a fire hose
Keep a clean nose
Watch the plain clothes
You don't need a weather man
To know which way the wind blows

Get sick, get well
Hang around a ink well
Ring bell, hard to tell
If anything is goin' to sell
Try hard, get barred
Get back, write braille
Get jailed, jump bail
Join the army, if you fail
Look out kid
You're gonna get hit
But users, cheaters
Six-time losers
Hang around the theaters
Girl by the whirlpool
Lookin' for a new fool
Don't follow leaders
Watch the parkin' meters

Ah get born, keep warm
Short pants, romance, learn to dance
Get dressed, get blessed
Try to be a success
Please her, please him, buy gifts
Don't steal, don't lift
Twenty years of schoolin'
And they put you on the day shift
Look out kid
They keep it all hid
Better jump down a manhole
Light yourself a candle
Don't wear sandals
Try to avoid the scandals
Don't wanna be a bum
You better chew gum
The pump don't work
'Cause the vandals took the handles

Subterranean Homesick Blues... brilliant

Thank you Apple.
Bob Dylan is a genius. Pure and simple. His lyrics are the works of a master. Get to know him Mark. You won't be disappointed.

"Inside the museums, Infinity goes up on trial
Voices echo this is what salvation must be like after a while
But Mona Lisa musta had the highway blues
You can tell by the way she smiles
See the primitive wallflower freeze
When the jelly-faced women all sneeze
Hear the one with the mustache say, "Jeeze
I can't find my knees"
Oh, jewels and binoculars hang from the head of the mule
But these visions of Johanna, they make it all seem so cruel"

Pure genius.

Dylan is the best poet.. so diverse

the best..

The woman that I love she got a hook in her nose
her eyebrows meet, she wears second hand clothes
She speaks with a stutter and she walks with a hop
I don't know why I love her but I just can't stop

You know I love her
Yeah I love her
I'm in love with the Ugliest Girl in the World

If I ever lose her I will go insane
I go half crazy when she calls my name
When she says babababababy I l-l-love you
There ain't nothing in the world that I wouldn't do

You know I love her
Yeah I love her
I'm in love with the Ugliest Girl in the World

The woman that I love she got two flat feet
Her knees knock together walking down the street
She cracks her knuckles and she snores in bed
She ain't much to look at but like I said

You know I love her
Yeah I love her
I'm in love with the Ugliest Girl in the World

I don't mean to say that she got nothing goin'
She got a weird sense of humor that's all her own
When I get low she sets me on my feet
Got a five inch smile but her breath is sweet

You know I love her
Yeah I love her
I'm in love with the Ugliest Girl in the World

The woman that I love she a got a prizefighter nose
Cauliflower ears and a run in her hose
She speaks with a stutter and she walks with a hop
I don't know why I love her but I just can't stop

Re: Music – what are you listening to right now? - 01/30/05 06:05 PM

"Oh, what did you see, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, what did you see, my darling young one?
I saw a newborn baby with wild wolves all around it
I saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it,
I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin',
I saw a room full of men with their hammers a-bleedin',
I saw a white ladder all covered with water,
I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken,
I saw guns and sharp swords in the hands of young children,
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall."

OR THIS:"I been double-crossed now for the very last time and now I'm finally free,
I kissed goodbye the howling beast on the borderline which separated you from me.
You'll never know the hurt I suffered nor the pain I rise above,
And I'll never know the same about you, your holiness or your kind of love,
And it makes me feel so sorry."

"I been double-crossed now for the very last time and now I'm finally free,
I kissed goodbye the howling beast on the borderline which separated you from me.
You'll never know the hurt I suffered nor the pain I rise above,
And I'll never know the same about you, your holiness or your kind of love,
And it makes me feel so sorry."


"I been double-crossed now for the very last time and now I'm finally free,
I kissed goodbye the howling beast on the borderline which separated you from me.
You'll never know the hurt I suffered nor the pain I rise above,
And I'll never know the same about you, your holiness or your kind of love,
And it makes me feel so sorry."


"My love she speaks like silence,
Without ideals or violence,
She doesn't have to say she's faithful,
Yet she's true, like ice, like fire.
People carry roses,
Make promises by the hours,
My love she laughs like the flowers,
Valentines can't buy her.

In the dime stores and bus stations,
People talk of situations,
Read books, repeat quotations,
Draw conclusions on the wall.
Some speak of the future,
My love she speaks softly,
She knows there's no success like failure
And that failure's no success at all."


"Some people will offer you their hand and some won't
Last night I knew you, tonight I don't
I need somethin' strong to distract my mind
I'm gonna look at you 'til my eyes go blind"


"I was born here and I'll die here against my will
I know it looks like I'm moving, but I'm standing still
Every nerve in my body is so vacant and numb
I can't even remember what it was I came here to get away from
Don't even hear a murmur of a prayer
It's not dark yet, but it's getting there."


"Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin'.
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'."


"There must be some way out of here," said the joker to the thief,
"There's too much confusion, I can't get no relief.
Businessmen, they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth,
None of them along the line know what any of it is worth."


"How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
Yes, 'n' how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, 'n' how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind."

"Far between sundown's finish an' midnight's broken toll
We ducked inside the doorway, thunder crashing
As majestic bells of bolts struck shadows in the sounds
Seeming to be the chimes of freedom flashing
Flashing for the warriors whose strength is not to fight
Flashing for the refugees on the unarmed road of flight
An' for each an' ev'ry underdog soldier in the night
An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

In the city's melted furnace, unexpectedly we watched
With faces hidden while the walls were tightening
As the echo of the wedding bells before the blowin' rain
Dissolved into the bells of the lightning
Tolling for the rebel, tolling for the rake
Tolling for the luckless, the abandoned an' forsaked
Tolling for the outcast, burnin' constantly at stake
An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

Through the mad mystic hammering of the wild ripping hail
The sky cracked its poems in naked wonder
That the clinging of the church bells blew far into the breeze
Leaving only bells of lightning and its thunder
Striking for the gentle, striking for the kind
Striking for the guardians and protectors of the mind
An' the unpawned painter behind beyond his rightful time
An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

Through the wild cathedral evening the rain unraveled tales
For the disrobed faceless forms of no position
Tolling for the tongues with no place to bring their thoughts
All down in taken-for-granted situations
Tolling for the deaf an' blind, tolling for the mute
Tolling for the mistreated, mateless mother, the mistitled prostitute
For the misdemeanor outlaw, chased an' cheated by pursuit
An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

Even though a cloud's white curtain in a far-off corner flashed
An' the hypnotic splattered mist was slowly lifting
Electric light still struck like arrows, fired but for the ones
Condemned to drift or else be kept from drifting
Tolling for the searching ones, on their speechless, seeking trail
For the lonesome-hearted lovers with too personal a tale
An' for each unharmful, gentle soul misplaced inside a jail
An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

Starry-eyed an' laughing as I recall when we were caught
Trapped by no track of hours for they hanged suspended
As we listened one last time an' we watched with one last look
Spellbound an' swallowed 'til the tolling ended
Tolling for the aching ones whose wounds cannot be nursed
For the countless confused, accused, misused, strung-out ones an' worse
An' for every hung-up person in the whole wide universe
An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing."


I could go on and on...

my fave...ever had a former friend you just hate...the last four lines say it all...


You got a lotta nerve
To say you are my friend
When I was down
You just stood there grinning

You got a lotta nerve
To say you gota helping hand to lend
You just want to be on
The side that’s winning

You say I let you down
You know it’s not like that
If you’re so hurt
Why then don’t you show it

You say you lost your faith
But that’s not where it’s at
You had no faith to lose
And you know it

I know the reason
That you talk behind my back
I used to be among the crowd
You’re in with

Do you take me for such a fool
To think I’d make contact
With the one who tries to hide
What he don’t know to begin with

You see me on the street
You always act surprised
You say, how are you? good luck
But you don’t mean it

When you know as well as me
You’d rather see me paralyzed
Why don’t you just come out once
And scream it

No, I do not feel that good
When I see the heartbreaks you embrace
If I was a master thief
Perhaps I’d rob them

And now I know you’re dissatisfied
With your position and your place
Don’t you understand
It’s not my problem

I wish that for just one time
You could stand inside my shoes
And just for that one moment
I could be you

Yes, I wish that for just one time
You could stand inside my shoes
You’d know what a drag it is
To see you

I have apple* to thank for this and it is truly one of the most remarkable performances I have ever heard. I’ve played the first two tracks about a dozen times already, the rest of it less, but at this rate I think I’ll need another copy fairly soon. Here are a few of my responses:

I remember Albert Schweitzer playing these on some old 78 albums when I was 10 and I thought these about the the best music ever written.

I remember hearing my teacher play a few of them on the organ at a nearby college, especially a fugue called “the Wedge” that’s on here.

How wonderful they sound on the piano.

What a great pianist this fellow is. I wonder what else he plays? WOW, he plays the complete Scriabin Mazurkas, almost unavailable.

How could civilization allow Collins Classics to go under? What a terrible shame.

These are Liszt’s transcriptions of some of Bach’s greatest organ music. The Fantasy and Fugue alone is worth the whole album and then there’s the rest. Incredible. One more thought for the Christians among us.

Bach knew what it meant to walk the Via Dolorosa and carry the cross and hear the jeering masses, the music on this album is proof positive that he understood it all. A great tribute all the way around.

Troll is the poster above mine. He is having a ball resuscitating threads that are 4 years old, and making innocuous comments in every thread he can lay his fingers on.

Regarding your second subject...There's a CD coming out in a couple of weeks with a couple of hispanic chics playing a piece by Debussy and more, in a different recording. If you want to know when it goes on sale, go to "Contact" in the website and click on "sign up to mailing list".

I'm sure the girls will be thrilled to read your comments. And very appreciative as well. ;\)

Maybe, but I think he has seen just about enough (and by that I mean every thread that has ever existed). He also makes profound comments such as "I don't use a metronom, 'cause I'm a musician not a machine." And the straw that broke the camel's back for me was when he contaminated the Fireman's Prayer thread, which had no previous replies, with the brilliant theory that "I thinks terrorism is bad but it should not be involved with music. No offence." That was a special thread, and now it's not anymore. But he's just a kid. Ah, youth...

Sigurd Slεttebrekk plays Schumann's Carnival and Kreisleriana about as well as they have been played.

The bad news is that I don't think it is available in North America. I bought mine from the overseas distributer after reading glowing reviews of the performances. Definitely worth having.



It is interesting to me that for a long time, there were only a couple of recordings of this work that I thought really captured the beauty of it...but now...there are several - while I'm not going to say that this one gets to be at the top of the heap, it is one of the ones I'd recommend without reservation - and I wouldn't be surprised if it won in a playoff.

Mendelssohn Italian Symphony



I remember when I got this CD, two years ago... I was on a youth group trip to New York City, and the first thing I did when I got back to the hotel room was to pop it into my portable CD player and start blasting the Hebrides Overture. Despite my wearing headphones, one of my room-mates inevitably complained that I should "turn it down a couple notches!" \:D

Hey, as I once heard at a lecture about Felix Mendelssohn, "classical music is meant to be blasted." It's true... ;\)

Re: Music – what are you listening to right now? - 02/23/05 07:14 PM

One of the greatest....on this reissued disc and available on iTunes is a version of Season Of The Witch without the BS&Tish horns...a great tune and well worth the price of admission.





For those who don't know, the disc features Al Kooper of Blues Project fame. He also played organ on Blonde On Blonde (the simple famous riff in Like A Rolling Stone) and he founded Blood Sweat & Tears. Steve Stills (Buffalo Springfield and CSN) plays guitar on one side and Mike Bloomfield (Electric Flag and other blues bands that escape me at the moment) plays the other.

As good as it gets.

"The Gates Of Delirium"
(Anderson, Howe, Moraz, Squire and White)

Stand and fight we do consider
Reminded of an inner pact between us
That's seen as we go
And ride there
In motion
To fields in debts of honor
Defending

Stand the marchers soaring talons,
Peaceful lives will not deliver freedom,
Fighting we know,
Destroy oppression
The point to reaction
As leaders look to you
Attacking

Choose and renounce throwing chains to the floor.
Kill or be killing faster sins correct the flow.
Casting giant shadows off vast penetrating force
To alter via the war that seen
As friction spans the spirits wrath ascending to redeem.

Wars that shout in screams of anguish,
Power spent passion bespoils our soul receiver,
Surely we know.
In glory
We rise to offer,
Create our freedom,
A word we utter,
A word.

Words cause our banner, victorious our day.
Will silence be promised as violence display?
The curse increased we fight the pow'r
And live by it by day.
Our gods awake in thunderous roars,
And guide the leaders hand in paths of glory to the cause.

Listen, should we fight forever
Knowing as we do know fear destroys?
Listen, should we leave our children?
Listen, our lives stare in silence;
Help us now.

Listen, your friends have been broken,
They tell us of your poison; now we know.
Kill them, give them as they give us.
Slay them, burn their children's laughter
On to hell.

The fist will run, grasp metal to gun.
The spirit sings in crashing tones,
We gain the battle drum.
Our cries will shrill, the air will moan and crash into the dawn.
The pen won't stay the demon's wings,
The hour approaches pounding out the Devil's sermon.

Soon, oh soon the light,
Pass within and soothe this endless night
And wait here for you,
Our reason to be here.

Soon, oh soon the time,
All we move to gain will reach and calm;
Our heart is open,
Our reason to be here.

Long ago, set into rhyme.
Soon, oh soon the light,
Ours to shape for all time,
Ours the right;
The sun will lead us,
Our reason to be here.

Soon, oh soon the light,
Ours to shape for all time,
Ours the right;
The sun will lead us,
Our reason to be here.

Sibelius complete songs, finally released on CD after 20 years, 1985 Grammy winner. Some of the most beautifully heartrending music I've ever heard, in a wonderful recording and performance.

Gryphon,

Did you get all the Hacket releases from his web site?

That is a cool flute!

Re: Music – what are you listening to right now? - 03/07/05 03:47 PM

Gryphon,
You will have to hear it. Stunning music, and nobody could understand why it took so long to re-release. Strangly when I ditched my records last year, and this was one of the must keeps, it was released on CD about the same time. I've waited because of the weak dollar (I had to buy it from England), but finally broke down.

Elisabeth Soderstrom, Tom Krause, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Irwin Gage, Carlos Bonel.

Some of the best gems are buried in the middle, it's a 4 disk set.

Just this past fall I saw one with a hundred-eighty degree bend in the head. Apparently they're used for younger students, to lessen the reach required. Don't know if that's the same reason for a ninety degree bend.

Re: Music – what are you listening to right now? - 03/07/05 04:06 PM

jkeene, I bet that's the same flute! You just don't rotate the head as much, only 90 instead of the full 180. But playing it like that your finger position is different, more clarinet-like.

mark, I bought them from amazon. Actually, although amazon has these, I bought all three DVDs through their online sellers (click the new and used link). I got them all new for as little as $9.95. I still think I like Hackett's Tokyo Tapes Live the best because of the strong Please Don't Touch representation, but these are all good (and all different types of concerts).

But when I get tired of that I might go back to William Schuman's Violin Concerto, very visceral piece. I also like Jennifer Higdon's Concerto for Orchestra.

Great album gryphon!

I think I will give it a listen as soon as this is over.



Entangled

When you're asleep they may show you
Aerial views of the ground,
Freudian slumber empty of sound.

Over the rooftops and houses,
Lost as it tries to be seen
Fields of incentive covered with green.

Mesmerised children are playing,
Meant to be seen but not heard,
"Stop me from dreaming!"
"Don't be absurd!"

"Well if we can help you we will,
You're looking tired and ill.
As I count backwards
Your eyes become heavier still.
Sleep, won't you allow yourself fall?
Nothing can hurt you at all.
With your consent I can experiment further still."

Madrigal music is playing,
Voices can faintly be heard,
"Please leave this patient undisturbed."

Sentenced to drift far away now,
Nothing is quite what it seems,
Sometimes entangled in your own dreams.

"Well, if we can help you we will,
Soon as you're tired and ill.
With your consent
We can experiment further still.

Well, thanks to our kindness and skill
You'll have no trouble until
You catch your breath
And the nurse will present you the bill!"

Book Of Saturday


If I only could deceive you
Forgetting the game
Every time I try to leave you
You laugh just the same

'Cause my wheels never touch the road
And the jumble of lies we told
Just returns to my back to weigh me down...

We lay cards upon the table
The backs of our hands
And I swear I like your people
The boys in the band

Reminiscences gone astray
Coming back to enjoy the fray
In a tangle of night and daylight sounds...

All completeness in the morning
Asleep on your side
I'll be waking up the crewmen
Banana-boat ride

She responds like a limousine
Brought alive on the silent screen
To the shuddering breath of yesterday...

There's the succour of the needy
Incredible scenes
I'll believe you in the future
Your life and death dreams

As the cavalry of despair
Takes a stand in the lady's hair
For the favour of making sweet sixteen...

You make my life and times
A book of bluesy Saturdays
And I have to chose...

Re: Music – what are you listening to right now? - 04/06/05 10:52 AM

I won't argue, but I was thinking particularly of his drumming. I agree with your namechange thought, but the name retention was indicative of the problem. Phil started as front man for a musical group (by Trick of the Tail) and led the band into corporate excess. (He was not alone. The Rolling Stones and Bowie and everyone else started finding big fat corporate sponsors around this time.) Genesis became a brand right around when Gabriel left, too valuable to leave fallow.
Posted by: markjpcs

Re: Music – what are you listening to right now? - 04/06/05 10:58 AM

I do not begrudge Phil, Tony and Michael their monetary success. They had very little when they wrote and played great music.

I was of course disappointed but I understood exactly what was going on.

Peter even went pop.

The only one who never really did was Hackett.

Hackett is one of the most underrated guitarists ever.

Have you heard Hackett's Momentum CD? It's incredible.
Posted by: Dave Spelvin

Re: Music – what are you listening to right now? - 04/06/05 11:03 AM

I haven't. I haven't actively listened to prog rock in years, until I recently got the remastered Close to the Edge (which completely floored me) and Octopus by Gentle Giant (which was a bore). And I haven't followed with any intensity any of the solo projects. I pick Howe over Hackett, though, and if you disagree, please get a load of Close to the Edge.
Posted by: markjpcs

Re: Music – what are you listening to right now? - 04/06/05 11:21 AM

Two different styles and techniques.

Howe is awesome and I will give a edge to him for his sheer versatility.

Close to the Edge? It's in my iTunes library. I know it well.

Momentum is a classical album. Most of the pieces are original classical guitar compositions with some flute and other accompanying instruments.

He does a variation on a theme by Chopin and Boure'e on this album as well.

I believe it took a "Classical Album of the Year" award when it was released.

Here is the variation on a theme by Chopin if you want listen to it.

Re: Music – what are you listening to right now? - 04/06/05 11:36 AM

The Chopin, taken from an etude I believe, is very pretty, but I can't say I'm in love on the first listen. Surely well-played. What's with the bizarre vibrato at around 3:40? Sounds like he had a fit in the middle of the piece.

Ah, the Early Middle Period, I believe it's called by the cognoscenti. \:\)

Lemme know what you think about Radiohead. They have the benefit of being currently active, so, if you like them, you can anticipate new records from time to time.

All right, all right, Gryph my musical brother...I like Peter Gabriel and I don't like Phil Collins and somehow I never noticed Genesis, but I will give a listen....I SAW Jethro Tull in 1968.

I know exactly what you mean. I don't own any of their stuff myself. Maybe I need to listen to more of it. Or, perhaps, maybe it's just not as good as the original progs. I really wanted to like their album "Snow".

Heck, I'm all for the "concept" album (I'd be a far poorer man for never having learned of "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway".), but some attempts are more successful than others. Rush's "2112" was OK, but Pink Floyd's "The Wall" was much better executed, IMHO. (Neither approach TLLDoB, though!)

jf, the three best Genesis albums (IMO) are:


Selling England By The Pound


Wind and Wuthering


A Trick of the Tail[/b]

But, if you could only listen to/buy one Genesis album, it should be their 2-CD live set:


Seconds Out[/b]

Mark will now chime in and call for Foxtrot. \:D

Oh, and on (recent) topic, it's a concept album, too.

So much prog rock, so little time.

Guys, this stuff is over 30 years old. Has nothing happened since to make you stand up and take notice? Clash, Buzzcocks, Ramones, Elvis Costello? Joy Division, Bauhaus, The Cure? Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden? Radiohead, Coldplay? Sigur Ros?

(Don't take too seriously, as this comes from a guy in the throes of a Prokofiev jag, but seriously Elvis Presley was still alive when the albums you're talking about were made.)

Re: Music – what are you listening to right now? - 04/08/05 06:55 PM

I am amazed by the songs on the first album which was recorded when the lads were but 16 & 17 years old. Sure they had some "strong suggestions" to add the strings to a lot of the pieces but the core compositions are incredibly beautiful. The fact that they were probably 14 & 15 when some of them were written provides even more "mystic" about them.

From the second album, "Trespass" the song "White Mountain" is a haunting piece. The song titled "Stagnation" is just so indescribably beautiful as is "Dusk"

Then it's off to the progressive rock races with "Foxtrot", "Nursery Cryme", "Selling England by the Pound" and the end of the Peter Gabriel era with "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway".

You are right gryphon. Wind & Wuthering and Trick of the Tail are two of my favorites as well. In fact, I find it hard to pick a favorite album from 1968 through 1977.

Between 1969 and 1977 there is no song or composition on any Genesis album that I would call "second rate music". It is incredibly imaginative and original music that simply has no equal in the rock music genre.

Oh, heck yeah. Just look through my entries in this REALLY long thread. I don't live in the past, but I don't dismiss it, either. Sometimes it's just nice to relive one's childhood (as I was just a little nipper back in THOSE days!). ;\)

Understood. While we're on the topic of the old but ageless, any Kinks fans here? Particularly, Face to Face, Something Else, Village Green Preservation Society? Together with Pet Sounds and Revolver, these have got what I like about the 60s. And then there's my fetishes for Dusty Springfield and Gene Pitney. I'm not proud of them but they've hooked me.

Re: Music – what are you listening to right now? - 04/08/05 07:15 PM

Mark:

If you don't like the Ramones, then I suppose you can't really like The Beach Boys who were the Ramones' biggest influence. That and cheap horror movies. I hope you give some of these folks a try. They don't do the long songs like the progsters, but I've found great intensity and other rewards in a perfectly wrought 3 minute pop song. For example, possibly the best song/performance of the 1970s, IMO, is Big Star's September Gurls. Have you heard it? Pure ecstacy.

Very eclectic mix there. Love the Kinks, although I may not be familiar with the more obscure. To Dusty and Gene, add Roy Orbison, who I think one of the greatest rock balladeers of all time....I way him in concert one night before he died....

Most of that stuff you list is awful. You couldn't make me listen to the Clash or the Ramones or Nirvana or Pearl Jam with a gun to my head. Abysmal. Been a Costello fan since day one and have the vinyl to prove it. Done the Joy Division/PSB/New Order/Electronic and Smiths/Morrissey thing. (Backpacked the 100-Mile Wilderness listening to New Order). Personally I'm a big jazz fan (see Jean Luc Ponty live) but every once in a while you gotta go back to some of your roots. Santana, ELP, Tull, Strawbs, Yes (and as huge a fan as I was in my earlier years, I am less fond of Yes today).

i wonder if the fact that most of us love the music we grew up on as teenagers make us not appreciate current things.

i cannot recognize any of the music of the groups listed, yes can still rememebr every note and lyric of "my" music.

not that i havent liked more current things, but i dont have the passion for anything thats not written in late 60's or decade of seventies.

thread on grateful dead by jf made me think of this, why is music from when we were say, 16-25, marked indelibly on our psyche??
Posted by: Dave Spelvin

Re: Music – what are you listening to right now? - 04/09/05 08:24 AM

I came to Roy Orbison late and warmed up to him in a hurry. The voice of an angel. Brian Wilson's new Smile is a wonder. But more than anything, though, if you haven't given Pet Sounds a real try, you're missing one of the great musical experiences. Paul McCartney was flabbergasted when it came out, and was especially taken with the songwriting and the bass playing. It's got Wouldn't It Be Nice, God Only Knows and Sloop John B, but the arrangements are what keep me coming back. The sound of the record is one-of-a-kind.

I, too, am promiscuous musically. I recommend it because you don't catch diseases, although the neighbors may threaten you from time to time.

Re Kinks: Do You Remember Walter is just the ticket. Waterloo Sunset may be my favorite song of all time. Such brilliance, and we in the US were denied it at the time because Ray and the boys got drunk during their first US tour (or tours?) and couldn't get visas for the next tour. There was a virtual blackout until Lola broke through (another great song).

Sigur Ros is truly fantastic, in a laying down in bed, forgetting about everything that is going on around you, sort of way. As for Jazz, Medeski Martin and Wood has recently (and not so recently) put out some great stuff (though, I would tend to classify them more as a jam band than jazz band).

For some really weird, yet, strangely addicting music check out "Gang Gang Dance":
