Raed Khashoukgi on Megatar performing A Days Cycle



Especially checkout Daniel Schmidt on saxophones. Incredible tone!

 :Thmbsup:

And the Rebecca Johnson Band doing the Pastorius/Herzog funk number Come On Come Over




I don't know too many bassists confident enough to tackle a Jaco Pastorius bass line let alone do vocals at the same time.

Hey Rebecca! Go Girl!! :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

Quite impressive. The future of speed metal shred seems to be in very good hands as the next generation takes over. It would be even more interesting to see how she handles a slow lyrical number however. I'll have to go look. Thx for the find.  :)

I don't think I've seen these gents mentioned here: Unlocking the Truth

From the Stephen Colbert Report: http://www.metalinje...d-by-stephen-colbert (via Metal Injection - 3 good performances there)

Their own site: http://unlockingthetruthband.com/

(note that they by default MUTE their video.  People could learn a lot from these 8th graders)

And wikipedia entry: https://en.wikipedia.../Unlocking_the_Truth

They're pretty cool... been following them for a while now.

From the Shameless Plug Department: My GF's cousin (Susanne Vick) doing harmony for her good friend and musical collaborator Melissa Mulligan's CD. An almost medievally pure set of harmonizations on O Come, O Come Emmanuel.

The main music of the wonderful movie "The Anonymous Venetian":


"A refrigerator without beer is like a body without soul"

I don't usually like classical music, but I find this piece really enthralling:

The same piece in another way (however I find far better the previous, the original one):


"A refrigerator without beer is like a body without soul"

Still Life at the Penguin Cafe. A ballet based on the music of Simon Jeffes and the Penguin Cafe Orchestra. Well worth the 38 minutes it takes to watch it all the way through. Hypnotic music that grows on you with repeated listening.



Especially good are the Hog-nosed Skunk Flea's dance to the song Pythagorus's Trousers at the 13:34 mark; and the Brazilian Woolly Monkey dance to the song Music by the Numbers around 26:12

The Holiday Season usually dredges up memories for me. And lately they've been sad memories about a lot of fine musicians who are no longer with us.

Here's Freddy Mercury and Queen:



Quote
"Crazy Little Thing Called Love took me five or ten minutes. I did that on the guitar, which I can't play for nuts, and in one way it was quite a good thing because I was restricted, knowing only a few chords. It's a good discipline because I simply had to write within a small framework. I couldn't work through too many chords and because of that restriction I wrote a good song, I think." - Freddie Mercury



Things like this remind me why it's a good thing I never wanted to be a front man. Or the lead singer. Because I'm not - nor will I ever be.

However, being an occasional backup singer, and the bass player, doesn't seem such a bad thing to me.

In fact, it suits me rather well...

And that's just fine!  :Thmbsup: ;D

The exhilarating "Misty Mountain Hop" (Led Zeppelin) by 4 Non Blondes:

A video showing the drummer Mike Terrana. It's a beautiful solo by drums that from the time 4:40 turns into a fun unexpected music:



I have never seen a such performance.  :)

Ricky Lee Jones doing her own unforgettable take on her classic tune Easy Money, neatly demonstrating that sometimes less is more when it comes to musical performance...



Lyrics
Quote

There was a Joe, leanin' on the back door
A couple Jills that had their eyes on a couple bills
Their eyes was stayin', they was waitin' to get
Their hands on some easy money

They flipped a dime, one says
"Well, I'll take heads this time"
One stepped up, one stepped back
One loosened her shoulder strap

She couldn't speak, her knees got weak
She could almost taste that easy money

There was this old black cat
Which was sittin' in a old black Cadillac
And the Joe smelled sweet
So she curls up at her boyfriend's feet

She says "I got a plan, listen, Sam
How'd ya like to make some of that easy money?"

He say, "Yes, oh yes
Jus' tell me what you want me to do"
She said, "Baby, you can trust me, oh baby
But you must be hidin' in my room, quarter to two"

Well, the cat told the boy
"Come up to the room and play with my toy, honey"
But the Jill had set the bait
She wasn't gonna sit around and wait

But this guy was wise to all the lies
And he flies out the door with the easy money

'Cause there ain't no man
Who got the money in his hand
Who got any of that bread
By bein' slow in the head

The easier it looks, the hotter it hooks
There ain't no such thing as easy money
We say, "Yes, oh yes"

Saturday night
There was a terrible, terrible fight
Between two dames
Who was losin' the same game

It wasn't clear but I hear that somebody
Was lookin' for some easy money

Naughty Number Nine - one of the best pieces (and there were many good ones) by Bob Dorough for the Schoolhouse Rock educational cartoon series. IMHO this is one of the best old-style blues numbers ever. This song originally aired in 1973. I only wish there was a version available without the sound effects. The horns and chord progression in that turnaround are awesome!

Thought you'd like that. ;D  The piano work is especially good. Check out that almost bend the keys put in between the 0:12 and 0:15 mark. That's really sweet! :up: :up:

[youtube]The Common Linnets - Calm After The Storm (The Netherlands) 2014 Eurovision Song Contest[/youtube]

about as 'un-eurovisiony' as you could possibly get -
which is probably why it's a good track :)


EDIT//  here's another, a bit more country (or less Americana - whatever):



Common linnets- Broken But Home

EDIT(with apologies for all the edits)// - the lyrics are distinctly odd at times ... (guess it happens when English not the native language)
