I discovered Wilhelm Kempff this week.
I also discovered Beethoven's Tempest Sonata [..]
Very nice. I've been listening to this lately; at the time, poor Isaac Stern looks like his health is about ready to fail at any moment, but his playing proves him ever the Master. Isaac Stern & Jean-Bernard Pommier - César Franck Violin Sonata in A major - 1st & 2nd mvt
César Franck Violin Sonata in A major - 1st mvt
César Franck Violin Sonata in A major - 2nd mvt
thanks, looking forward to those :up:
Took  me a while to figure out the links though :-) they're back to front: link is actually the video title (I fixed it in the quoted text).

I also discovered Beethoven's Tempest Sonata -- via Nokia's 'Silver' ringtone which is a variation on the start of the third movement :-)
Beethoven's Tempest Sonata - Third Movement
(no other performance I've heard on youtube touches this one)

I love the Beethoven piano sonatas and also Kempff -- actually heard him perform Beethoven over 50 years ago -- but this particular performance doesn't do all that much for me.

Try this one by Grigory Sokolov, one of the greatest - and quirkiest - pianists performing today.

^ That one's very different isn't it -- much more staccato. After having listened to the Kempff performance a lot, I had to listen to this a couple of times to adjust.
It really is wonderful, thanks for the tip!

Adam Nussbaum played at a free concert at MDC Wednesday. I don't know the technical drumming term for his style. But he plays many different off beat rhythms mixed together. The solos were shorter and more varied than expected. The composition of his he played that I liked most was "Hey Pretty Baby." He said it was inspired by the old time blues men. A funky bass line with vamping by the other players. Not your basic walking blues. It sounded quite original.



Edit:  I am not a musician so terms may be defined differently by people who know what they are talking about.  Kind of like the automobile side view mirror thing.  You get an idea what I mean but it is probably distorted.  :)

@Miles - you are so right about Nussbaum. One of my all time favorite drummers. I don't really know what his style would be called either. It's a polyrhythmic sort of thing like you'd hear in the Thelonius Monk Quartet and some of those other old bebop bands. One thing that's interesting to me is how his phrasing is more like a horn player's than your average drummer.

Last night my daughter was watching The Daily Show on Hulu and they had a musical act called The Suffers on. They looked like an old school funk show band, which I love. Then they started playing, and it was even better than that. They're actually the most authentically awesome old school soul band I've seen in... well ever really. In fact, I would put Kam Franklin up against any soul singer from any era.



Then there's this one from last year.

Before they beat me bloody down at the station
They haven't got a word out of me since
I got a billion years probation

Song was originally by the Vibrations:

It's a polyrhythmic sort of thing like you'd hear in the Thelonius Monk Quartet and some of those other old bebop bands.

In fact he led off with Monk's Played Twice.  I enjoy the Jazz concerts they do at MDC here especially because they are usually about 70 minutes long.  I don't feel like I am sitting in the seat too long.  I like to get there 1/2 hour early as it is so that I can sit on the end of the row that has a nice spot to park my suitcase.  No worries about it getting in the way.  But back to the rhythms, they were "getting in my body" as Miles used to say.  It was almost work because I had two wrists and one foot going to different rhythms.  I definitely felt involved in the experience.   :Thmbsup:

And now for something that goes to elev... er... 13 and a half. :P

Adele's "Hello" given the Metal treatment by a very talented one-man band.


His schtick is doing metal covers of horrible pop songs (not saying that Adele is horrible...).  Now I can listen to what my co-workers like and not have to suppress my gag reflex :P  Check out the playlist:
https://www.youtube....61U11HpoWt5JP18NHeve

Also, he actually had some help on that one from insane guitarist Pete Cottrell.
I dig artists that can rip on odd time signatures and not sound pretentious.

Well... that last part is outright silly.

Here's an interesting one. A really simple technique, used in a unique way, with some nice music. I recommend you watch full screen, or you may think the video is just a still image.



City - SanBase

Credit for the music is River Pilots, but I don't know if that's the name of the song or the group that made the music. And I can't find any more information about it. :(

I think I found them here: http://riverpilotsmusic.com/

Did I get it wrong or did it look in one of the sections of the vid where it showed the internal belt feeding through, that there were squares on the belt that actually made the melody?  Sort of like the cylinder on a player piano.  It didn't seem to me as if the marbles were required accept as eye candy.  Maybe I imagined it.

that true

no, they were working too --
I *think* they were playing the guitar strings, and they were definitely playing the xylophone, and generally making clacky sounds :-)

I was under the impression that they were what was causing the marbles to come down at the appropriate time. You can see it in action from about 35-45 seconds into the video. The pegs move an arm which lifts open a gate and lets a marble drop out.

As best as I can tell, all sounds are produced by the marbles hitting something. And other than the guy moving his hands up & down the guitar frets and spinning the crank and flipping switches now and then to activate/deactivate certain parts of the machine, everything else is done by the marbles.

^ aahh okay, that makes sense: I thought (like Miles I think) that that arm made sounds -- I mean directly as opposed to indirectly.

Well, I mean, MilesAhead wasn't wrong that the belt had pegs like a cylinder on a self-playing piano. But this machine added in another layer of complexity/abstraction by having the pegs pluck an arm which drops a marble instead of just having the peg pluck a string/prong itself.

Journey in 1974 at Winterland. If your only exposure to Journey has been their career in Top 40 radio, this will not be at all what you expect.
