Esperanza Spaulding. Tiny and devastatingly talented. One of the best things to come to jazz in the last decade. The lady is "scary good" and equally adept at classic and modern jazz idioms.

Here's Endangered Species:

I had intended to post a christmas song -- heard a couple of nice 'new' ones lately (new-for-me + a couple of hundred years old probably) .
But somehow I'm posting this instead  :huh: :-\ :)



Black Rose (English Sub)~ Gumi
The lyrics are quirky, translation seems quite good, but does seem to lose the plot occasionally. I like "sell off a scattered conclusion". (But I'm posting it just cause it's catchy.)

A brilliant and definitive performance of the Pogues now classic Christmas tune: Fairytale of New York - featuring Katzenjammer, Ben Caplan and The Trondheim Soloists.

Yes, >the studio version< is even better, but I really like this outdoor live version from a balcony with snow.

Here we also have a XYLOPHONE (just how often do you have the chance to type a word beginning with x ? No, Real Life is that the xylophone was invented & named to give meaning to the letter x !) a double bass, freezing fingers, and a broken string!

Well, it's sort of 'video'; the sound track to the video game Portal 1, with this full title in a yt search window;

Soundtracks : Music Collection: - (Season 2) (Episode 1 - PORTAL)

I really only like the first 2/3rds of it, which is quite dreamy in a soft throbbing electronic sort of way.

hey bit! - what's wrong with giving us a link??!! :p
you could even wrap it in YT [youtube][/youtube] tags ;)
(dont forget to make it http - *not* https)

PS enjoying it so far. Reminded me a bit of Brian Eno - but I'm not that familiar with his stuff either.


FWIW here's his music for airports - different, but nice n mellow - worth posting:

^^ This.

I prefer Side 1, Part 1 meself.  Excellent soundtrack to the 4 months I spent unemployed trolling the job listings and beefing up my resume with MS software training from the local public library.



Pure edge-of-melancholy bliss.
I always followed this up with something on the complete flip side, like Caspar Brötzmann Massaker:

A Capella Group Home Free in the Finals...

1:13 is for our own 40hz... (never actually heard someone get to his note vocally before, even though he's about 44 hz (Low F#))  ;D



But watch the whole thing :)

thank you, both of you. They're quite all right, these Home Free guys. From what I've found, I Want Crazy was not their best track, but maybe their best live act - which of course is what counts the most in a competition.

I was talking about the Low F# he hit (and sustained) more than anything else.  You can just barely hear it on substandard speakers being in the 44Hz range.  But, that's not even my favorite track of the competition from them... but that in and of itself is very impressive.

usually the intro to The Muppets was a 51 second short standardized scene. But when OK GO was visiting, the intro became quite long and different - a music video in itself:

Modified:

I simply just had to add their version of Bohemian Rhapsody:



Dadda?

I got interested in the sound of the Hang Drum some time back.

It's a lovely instrument with a unique sound, the broader adoption of which is hampered by the somewhat elitist and precious attitude of its designers. One does not simply go out and order a Hang Drum. (You can read all about how that works - along with some additional faux-mystic blather - on their blog here.)

Quote
We have decided
  •    to keep on building the Free Integral Hang. We will practice every day to keep the sensual plasticity from fading and the tonal energy from ebbing.
  •    to pass the traces of this work to interested parties who accept our views and travel on their self-accountable path.
  •    to make the few Hanghang available on the basis of letters and recommendations.
  •    to not keep waiting lists.
  •    to pay more attention to how the Hang is developing in the world of therapy. We are skeptical because we are not convinced that this branch lends itself to a reasonable application of the highly complex Hang. Despite having asked for feedback on this subject, we have received only a few reactions and experiences.
  •    to not turn our attention to the media such as YouTube and CDs. We know that the high dynamic of the Hang sound cannot be captured by microphones, and loudspeakers only distort reproductions.
  •    to inform all Hang players on streets and in parks that we are flooded by letters from people who were deeply moved and also want a Hang from PANArt. We are asking all street musicians to contemplate their mission.

Exactly how requiring a potential buyer to "accept our views" while simultaneously and contradictorily insisting they "travel on their self-accountable path" is a mystery to me.

And sad to say, their reluctance to part with their creations has resulted in extremely high prices  for the very few Hangs that do come on the open market. (There's one 'first gen' model currently listed on EBay with an $8500 USD price tag!) However, rather than acknowledge that maybe, just maybe, their deliberately making it so difficult to get one is driving the price up, they only have this to say:

Quote
For years PANArt instruments have been on the market for exorbitant prices and speculation has flourished. We take issue with this situation and our Free Integral Hang is therefore restricted to clients who agree to keep this delicate object from making its way in the popular market.

Insane. But I guess that's to be expected when you're dealing with Felix Rohner and Sabina Schärer, who apparently believe they have discovered GOD in a piece of metal.

<End of rant>

Anyway, it's still a very nice sounding instrument.

Here's the duo Hang Massive playing their composition Once Again:

WTH... it's basically a steel drum without the 50-gallon barrel attached, tuned to what sounds like A Phrygian*  :-\

[EDIT]Wikipedia has more on it's construction, and it's actually a little more complicated than that (but not much), incorporating a corresponding bowl for the bottom with an opening to create Helmholtz resonance, and tuned to (more or less) a D Aeolian (Natural Minor), without the 'G'.

Agree though, it's quite a mesmerizing sound.

*
Actually, depending on what you choose for your "root" note (fundamental), the same scale could be A Phrygian, A# Lydian, C Mixolydian, D Aeolian, E Locrian, or F Major... if you're a geek about that sort of thing, that is... :-[

Not so much a video as a 1.5 hour long documentary!

prog-rock-britannia-bbc.png


BBC Prog Rock Britannia an Observation in Three Movements


Quote
BBC Prog Rock Britannia an Observation in Three Movements. Feature-length documentary about progressive music and the generation of bands that made it. Follows it's birth, its rise in the UK and US and its decline.

Covers Yes, Genesis, ELP - Emerson Lake & Palmer, Soft Machine, EGG, King Crimson, Procol Harum, Caravan and interviews with Rick Wakeman, Steve Howe, Bill Bruford, Carl Parmer, Mont Campbell, Phil Collins, Pete Sinfield, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Arthur Brown, Robert Wyatt, Gary Brooker, Mike Oldfield, Jonathan Coe, Ian Anderson, Bob Harris



This is about of the only documentary on prog rock I've ever seen that got all the details right, including: which band really originated the genre (The Wilde Flowers) - and what effectively destroyed it (hint: ELP and Genesis post Peter Gabriel).

If you're one of those people who hauls out a pair of headphones and secretly listens to old Moody Blues and Caravan vinyl albums - by yourself - late at night - with all the lights turned off - this documentary is for you.
 ;D :Thmbsup:

Note: it's probably not a bad idea to download if you're interested. The BBC has been pretty adamant about getting their stuff removed from Youtube - and this copy has been up for about a year now.

Moody Blues!!  omg...that is so closet for me!  Nice, called me out there.
I secretly like skipping to the "it's not the way..." part, before it picks up again.

That's ok. You're among friends here. ;D

In my case it's: The Actor, Watching and Waiting, Timothy Leary's Dead, and Let Merlin Cast His Spell for 'headphone hour.'  ;D

But that's how it goes when you're:



note: Good to see Dave Pegg here on bass again. He was easily  (from 1979-1995) the best of all of the Tull bassists IMO!

I'm a metalhead from way back, and I always find it *ahem* interesting what long-haired freaks with waaaay too much volume on their hands will come up with to keep the genre from drying up.  But... ummm...  Dude, whaa???

This just in from our Japan office of the "What is this, I don't even" department:
