Sleep well Recaredo! I must have just missed you. I'm home now and resting up a bit before I start practice. I am looking forward to listening to your post shortly. You know how much I love Baroque! smile

Ahh....can't do Country. I have tried....really i have. 39 years and only country i have been able to enjoy is Lee Hazelwood.

We went for a drive up to the mountains today. It was 3 deg (celsius)....cold for here and for this time of year.

I enjoyed listening to Kate Bush's recent album "50 words for Snow" on the way home....twice....wife and kids were napping in the car!

I have been spinning this constantly since Christmas. It's a slow real burner. Opening track "Snowflake" sets the mood and theme for the album. It features Kate Bush's son as the snowflake, Steve Gadd on drums, and Kate's mellow piano.

It's Ok, vegasE, you and 3 million other people have just collectively sighed in relief, ha ha!

I love watching ballet...
Have a nice day, all !

(tomorrow, I may just post one of the top 10 music videos of all time and I do not believe it's been posted here yet!)

Good morning everyone! Lots of great postings here folks! Recaredo, I loved the Locatelli violin concerto. I've never heard any of his compositions. This was a treat. As things turned out yesterday, I decided to do my piano practice before listening to your post. It was an excellent decision because I listened to it later in the evening just before going to bed. That was a perfect time. Thanks!

Elssa, the Fleetwood Mac was great. I have the album that my cousin gave to me years ago. I never get tired of hearing it.

Vegas, I really enjoyed the Kate Bush selection. I've not heard much of her music, however. She has a wonderful touch to the piano.

Okay, I'm going to shift gears here to one of my favorite jazz pianists. It would be a gross mistake, however, to put Herbie Hancock into only the category of jazz pianist. His versatility as a musician, composer, artist, arranger, blows my mind. I recently saw him on public television performing George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. When he was a young man he had already made a guest solo appearance with the Chicago Symphony.

Enough of my chatter. Let's have a listen to his performance of "Watermelon Man."

One of my most worn out records was a 12" single of this:



I never really appreciated his work until much later.

Oh and my neighbor(an upright bass guy) saw him at Orchestra Hall here last year.

LMAO oh I remember Rockit! I loved that song! I had no idea who played it though. Mr. Herbie Hancock is quite talented.

Vegas: I see why you listened to that CD over and over again! It's very relaxing. Nice background music to let yourslef wander too!

Great picks guys! and good morning! smile

I was listening to Mendelssohn's works for cello and piano yesterday. All of 'em are breathtaking! But I'm continuously listening to these two again and again and still can't meet my thirst!

Evening dudes and dudettes, heres a thought..
Nobody has mentioned this yet,

BUt what sort of music would you like to be played at your funeral? Heres hoping you dont kick the proverbial in the near future, but, just like writing a will, your choices of post mortal coil auditorial delight should be contemplated well in advance of your eventual demise...

So what will it be? will you want to be buried or incinerated to the strains of something mild and serene like a little Enya ( not enya when she was a child ,but just a small amount of enya)

Or would you like to go kicking and screaming and dragging your fingernails along the icy hardened cold earth as they try and lower your coffin prematurely into the awaiting dark hole dug in unhallowed ground?

Or have you any planned musical choices that adequately express how sorry you may be that you have grown to such a morbidly overweight individual that you have concerns all your ashes will not fit in a single urn?

And if so, what will these musical choices be that express your funerary desires and wishes for the spectators left behind in either grief and mourning or deep joy at your passing?

On a more serious...ahem...note...I would pick these...I'm a big fan of film sountracks and I first heard Glenn Gould as a kid watching "Slaughterhouse Five"...



Or this, one of my all time favorite soundtracks:

Hi everyone. I'm just dropping by, but won't be posting today. I have the day off to get fully rested up for tonight. I'm going to play 2 pieces for a community group holding it's annual meeting at our theater. I felt honored to be asked. There is a bit of a challenge for me with this one. This blasted cough keeps hanging on. I don't have a fever and feel well enough to handle it. I've heard from others that this is what to expect for a bit longer.

I'll let you know how things go later! Right now, I'm resting and using a few simple remedies to manage the cough -- warm water, tea, eucalyptus drops. It seems to help. Oh yeah, I'll do a toddy at bedtime, but certainly not before the performance! laugh

Later!



Carl

I do hope your cough goes away soon! My entire household is struggling with the exact same thing. My son really got it bad though! Let us know how it goes tonight!

Thanks for all the Herbie Hancock, Griffin, KeysAngler and Bob... He's the original funkmeister. And Head Hunters has to be one of the greatest albums ever.

I once went to see Hancock, at the Barbican in London. I had a bad fall on the way in to the building, and broke a bone in my foot. BUT I was determined not to miss the performance and managed to get to my seat in the end. In agony all the way through the concert, but so glad I didn't miss it.

Here's another man from back in the day: Horace Silver. Song for My Father was also recycled by the next generation (Steely Dan's Rikki Don't Lose That Number etc.).

My goodness, there's been some good stuff posted. I see I have to make more arrangements for my funeral! It would be nice if it could save me one more tax return.

It's a standard Gregorian Dies Irae for me, guys. Good Catholic boy, me!
