^Wow! Brubeck's Take Five. Sounds so simple and easy the way Dave and Paul play it. Or does until you try to perform it yourself the first few times. We're so trained in symmetric 3/4 and 4/4 timing (and their variants) that it can be a challenge to not accidentally loose that smooth 5/4 beat (evenly count: 1-2-3-1-2, 1-2-3-1-2...)  - or subconsciously "correct it" and start playing in 4/4 time instead. It's a subtle thing.

But subtlety is the mark of true genius. And Dave Brubeck had it in spades. :Thmbsup:

Yes, making off-time sound perfectly natural, that's something to behold.
In the rock/metal world, I've only heard Led Zeppelin, Soundgarden, Drive Like Jehu and Mnemic pull it off effortlessly.  Everyone else it sounded gimmicky, like they were very deliberately counting out that guess-my-time-signature with the riff rather than just letting it flow.
Nice to be reminded again how it's done.  :Thmbsup:

Since we're "living in the past" for the moment, here's two of Rock's soon to be "Greats of Yesteryear" in performance at the Canterbury Cathedral in 2011. May I present Messrs. Justin Hayward (Moody Blues) and Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull) performing two Moody Blues classics: Forever Autumn and Nights in White Satin.





Of course the future of Moody Blues performance is secure since their appointment of Norda Mullen as their new flutist/guitarist/backing vocalist. Interesting interview about the role of the flute and flute players in the Moody Blues:

Nice version of Hallelujah by her as well

The fado you posted a while back was great too - well, actually, that video was blocked, but you got me listening in that direction for a while -

via dangerous minds (I also added their contribution link in the quote)

Quote
Who would have thought that the highlight of the Hurricane Sandy benefit would be an absolutely badass performance by Sir Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear (a Germ meets The Beatle)?

The helter skelterish song is “Cut Me Some Slack” and it was written collectively by the group during a jam session. McCartney, playing a cigar-box guitar, does some amazing solo stuff. This really did exceed my, and most people I’ve talked to, expectations.

complete with cigarbox guitar for 40 ;-)

From the early days of punk - Graham Parker and The Rumor with their 1979 release of Protection.

Since I trace most of my musical roots back to the Boston punk scene back in the 70s  I'm always happy when I hear somebody carrying on the tradition in backstreet clubs of "The Hub." So here's something from an unusual (and sadly defunct) group from Boston called Morphine. Very unique blend of jazz and rock elements in a group featuring vocals, percussion, tenor and baritone saxophones, 2-string slide electric bass(!) - and no guitars. If the early Lou Reed met up with Don Van Vliet (Captain Beefheart) and Tom Waits, a couple of 'old school jazz' sax players, a carton of cigarettes - and a big bottle or two of Wild Turkey bourbon - it would sound like this.

If you like your music mostly dark and smoky- often conjuring up images of dark rainy nights in a big city -  this is the band for you.  :Thmbsup:

Here's a couple of favs of mine. First is You Look Like Rain



Candy



All Wrong



And next there Buena

^ Awesome.  I was big into these guys in the early 90's.  The only band me and my shoegazer friends could agree on. So sad when Sandman passed on.

instrumental only, but check out the drummer!!
...

Dude, if I had time for a band, I would hire that drummer.  I've often wondered why people into electronic music didn't do that kind of thing more often, using trigger plungers to strike real drums instead of arguing about how 'live' the samples on any given drum machine sound...

Here's a forgotten favorite of mine from around the same time period.  Relatively unknown outside the Athens, GA scene but made some damn fine minimalist swamp-boogie tunes.  That board he's stomping and shuffling on is one of the instruments O_o

The Post-rock page on Facebook is pretty good, and consistently delivers great music to its fans.

Here is their youtube playlist of the top 300 songs in post-rock (in no particular order):

If you like this and have a Facebook account...

@app - I do. :mrgreen: And I don't. :nono2:

But thank you for the YouTube list! There is some really good stuff to be found there. Much already familiar. But also a lot that's completely new. At least to me. Who could ask for more? ;D

Recommended!  :greenclp:

Oh yeah! Some fine foot-tappin' swamp blues there.

Love the stompin' board! But you forgot the shoes. They're usually carefully selected and also a part of that instrument. Like sticks to drums. Ka-chikka-caw-caw!

"Sir, it don't get no more roots than that!" :) :Thmbsup:
