Joe Gore (Tom Waite's guitarist) performing his arrangement of the Allegretto Pizzicato movement from Béla Bartók's Fourth String Quartet complete with his trademark hat and blank expression stage face.

Joe's CV
Quote
Joe's recording and performing credits include Tom Waits, PJ Harvey, Tracy Chapman, Marianne Faithfull, DJ Shadow, Courtney Love, Flea, Les Claypool, the Eels, and many other artists. His music appears in many films and TV shows. Joe helps develop musical products for various companies, notably Apple, where he is a major indie developer for the GarageBand, Logic, and MainStage platforms. He's written literally thousands of articles about music and musicians, and is senior editor of Premier Guitar magazine.




And yeah...that's a self tricked out $99 Hello Kitty model Squire Strat he's using for part of it.

This guy is a trip. Check out some of his other videos here.

Clara Rockmore was the virtuoso of the theremin back in the day:



She would do stuff like play a note quiet enough for only her to hear on the stage, just to get the pitch right, before swelling it to stage volume.  Her phrasing and smoothness of fade-ins and fade-outs are just amazing.  If you've ever attempted to play a theremin, you'll know that !@#$ is hard...

Now a new Clara has come to claim the antenna:



A bit too trip-hop/space-pop (damn these mongrel genres...) for me, but she obviously knows what she's doing.

Feel the same about it myself. Even with the current crop of players such as performer and co-founder of the New York Theremin Society, Dorit Chrysler. She has a number of videos up on Youtube. Here's her with Jon Coulton doing a weird intro to the Portal game song Still Alive. (It seems like she's not too happy with her performance on this one.) Sara Quin delivers an absolutely uninspired vocal on this one too:

That said, I DO like Clara's voice, it's got a certain soul that cuts through the background.  I'd like to see her with a few other members, at least keyboard and maybe something else eclectic, like a turntablist to keep those drum loops live.  
I don't envy those who have chosen Theremin as their vocation, it's really easy to make god-awful noise, and takes more than it's fair share of skill to make music.

Weeeelllll, I can't quite say it's uninspired, but definitely in that deadpan style that seems to be all the rage lately...

I quite like this one, both the song and the video :)


After that mind trip, this lovely little song by Aurora Aksnes is a good listen.


Also, Jenny Lewis!

Performance featuring Seaboard GRAND keyboards.

Quote
On May 22nd, ROLI showcased a Seaboard ensemble at Abbey Road Studios, featuring legendary keyboardist Jordan Rudess, accompanied by Marco Parisi and Heen-Wah Wai, and Ray Hearne at the drums.The song was composed for ROLI by Nathan Stornetta and Jordan Rudess. It is named after bass player extraordinaire Tony Levin, for its incredible bass and synth sounds.



Interesting possibilities for the adventurous keyboardist...

More on the Seaboard can be found on its website. Link here.

That's VERY fascinating.  First thing I think of is a keyboard that has breath controller, pitch/bend, or any midi control built into the keys themselves.

It's blast from the past Monday!  :tellme:

One of the more interesting early "British Invasion" era groups The Left Banke.

Their unusual arrangements and melodies were dubbed "Baroque Pop" by the music press - who didn't know quite what to make of them at first. Here is one of their most famous numbers (they had several) called Pretty Ballerina.




The first band I was ever in used to cover this song. This one brings back memories of a gentler time it does g'uvnor!  ;D

Agree. Anything that affords a musician more room for nuance and expression is ok in my book! :Thmbsup:

A long solo by Zakk Wylde:



Guitar solos are total circle jerks for guitarists (the real work horses - gotta let them shine a bit, eh?), but they're damn cool! 8)  :Thmbsup:

Zakk is damn good too!  :Thmbsup:

He works in a truckload there. You can hear a lot. Jimi and Randy included.

And that's a damn fine beard!  :Thmbsup:

For those that like heavier stuff, Exodus - Class Dismissed (A Hate Primer):



Just don't post the lyrics to Facebook or you'll go to jail. Really. Exodus posted about it here. Gary Holt chimes in on the topic:

Quote
“The idea that an individual in this great country of ours could be arrested for simply posting lyrics to a song is something I never believed could happen in a free society,” states EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt.

Holt is one wicked guitarist. I saw him play with Slayer just after Hanneman took ill from a spider bite.

Juice Rap News is periodically on RT, and does some interesting and entertaining stuff. Here's on on the singularity:



It's a techno/dubstep rap. Very well done.

I like my jazz one of two ways:  Ultra-traditional or way-out-wacked.  Guess which one this is?
