Poor women.  I was wondering how they practice and what happens if they drop... oops.

A piece on Miles Davis that aired on 60 Minutes.  There are a couple of music video clips as well as Morley Safer's interview and commentary.

Re: Recommend some music videos to me! - Take Five versions.
« Reply #1308 on: June 09, 2017, 09:58 AM »
Many jazz fans will know of and recognise the almost hypnotic beauty in the original Dave Brubeck Quartet's Take Five, of which some critics said its main failing was "...that it stopped":

Dave Brubeck Quartet - Take Five
https://www.youtube..../watch?v=vmDDOFXSgAs

However, not so many fans will necessarily have come across the version of Take Five put together by the Pakistani ensemble, The Sachal Studios Orchestra: (if you haven't already heard it, then be prepared for a surprise)

Sachal Studios Orchestra - Take Five Official
https://www.youtube..../watch?v=GLF46JKkCNg

There are some relevant notes in Wayback on the Sachal Studios Orchestra website, here: Sachal Studios Orchestra - Take Five

I tend to use my 6½ y/o son as a barometer for music appreciation. He seems to have a knack of knowing when a tune is "catchy", and with near-perfect pitch he is often singing pop songs to himself - e.g., including BTS music tracks that he listens to with his older sister and things like Zowie's - Smash It, which I tend to play.
"Play it again, Dad." was his immediate response on hearing the Sachal Studios Orchestra's version of Take Five. In fact, we both listened to it as I replayed it several times, and he watched with interest as I fed the soundtrack into Audacity to look at its waveform and edit out the "beep" at the start of the track.

_______________________________

Thanks for posting about that. I have to admit that I didn't like that track when I listened to it the first time, but on second hearing - and with a decent set of headphones - I liked it a lot, though it needed to be turned up to listen to and was a tad painful on the ears (too noisy). In that regard, it was a bit like Motörhead ♠ Killed By Death ♠ - where they made one of the earliest "bad taste" music videos that I have come across (there are a lot). Apparently, listening to Motörhead is the greatest cause of premature deafness in the Western world.    ;)

But your post got me thinking about some of the rather good music that has come out of animated videos, and one of my favourites - an opening song to The Ghost In The Shell came to mind - Kenji Kawai - Ghost City (Chant II - Ghost In The Shell movie), which track is about 3½ min. long, with some some techno music accompaniment, and it sounds very nice, though the chant is - relative to the accompaniment - rather shrill and noisy.
 
For contrast, here is the song being performed live (at about the 3-minute mark) in Ghost In The Shell - Kenji Kawai Opening Theme | Tokyo premiere (2017) (and watch the crazy drummer up top).

Here it is in full - approx. 18 ½ min. - with full orchestra and choir:    :o
Kenji Kawai - Cinema Symphony - Ghost In The Shell OST (from around 2011).

How do you not smile watching this:
Real 1950s Rock & Roll, Rockabilly dance from lindy hop !
_______________________________

Well, I don't know about "smile", but I found it a pretty impressive demo by professional dancers to some of the good old music of the day.
Coincidentally, my 15½ y/o daughter was today asking me what The Loco-motion was, and I said I thought it was a song and a dance - like The Twist, but maybe a line dance.
So I searched up and found this more modern video clip of people line-dancing to Little Eva's singing The Loco-motion:
Dance Party LocoMotion by Little Eva! American TV Soul Anthem Music Video! (2012)

And this (great) video of Little Eva - Loco-motion(1962) (fantastic voice).

And this group of apparently "real"/amateur dancers (as opposed to professional performers) doing what looks like jive to: Little Eva - The Loco-Motion (1962)

Then I found this 2012 video clip from Kylie Minogue - The Locomotion [Live on Dancing With The Stars 11-13-12], where, sadly, the singer's seemingly feeble/weak voice and limited range (I think she may have been ill) really couldn't seem to do the song proper justice, and the stilted dancing of the dancers seemed embarrassing.

Yet another reminder that it tends to be hard to improve on - let alone match - some of those original early dance-song hits.

Re: Recommend some music videos to me! Elfen Lied (Elven Song).

Some beautiful music and lyrics from a surrealistic and somewhat gruesome Japanese manga and anime series: Elfenlied - Lilium (Full ver.) HD
(Orchestral backing.)
The lyrics are in Latin:

Uploaded on 20 Nov 2010
Elfenlied - Lilium (Full ver.) HD

~ Lyrics by diorisjavier - thanks :D ! ~

Os iusti meditabitur sapientiam,
Et lingua eius loquetur indicium.
Beatus vir qui suffert tentationem,
Quoniqm cum probates fuerit accipient coronam vitae.
Kyrie, fons bonitatis.
Kyrie, ignis divine, eleison.

O quam sancta, quam serena,
Quam benigma, quam amoena esse Virgo creditur.
O quam sancta, quam serena,
Quam benigma, quam amoena,
O castitatis lilium.

[Instrumental]
Kyrie, fons bonitatis.
Kyrie, ignis divine, eleison.
O quam sancta, quam serena,
Quam benigma, quam amoena,
O castitatis lilium.

Reputed source:
Song composed by Kayo Konishi and Yukio Kondo in 2004, specifically for anime Elfen Lied. Whilst the music or the melodies are original, the lyrics in the opening part were borrowed from Psalms 37:30 and James 1:12 and the rest were taken from two Gregorian chants, "Ave Mundi Spes Maria" and "Kyrie - Fons bonitatis".
This particular abridgement apparently hadn't been seen before Elfen Lied.


Here's a clip of Elfen Lied - Lilium vocalist and trio  - piano, 2 x violin (or violin and viola). What a voice. Could be mimed?

A choral arrangement of same being performed by the boys' Choir Dzvinochok Kiev - Lilium Elfen Lied. (Pity the recording is amateurish.)

There seem to be quite a lot of examples of this song on YouTube. I rather like this arrangement:
【Kal】Lilium - Elfen Lied OP Male Version w/ Choir Arrangement

For more info, see also Wikipedia - Elfen Lied.

Some nice tracks on this album.  Smooth without being "smooth jazz."

For some reason that video reminded me of this one I shared early on in this thread:

Here's one I came upon a day or two ago.



This isn't the actual music video to the song. Some guy on YouTube just grabbed a random music video from the 70s and cut it to make it slightly relevant to the music of Mogwai.

The result is a "What the heck?" which gradually turns into a chuckle, and perhaps even hilarity.

My young niece is visiting me this week -- we just went and saw a local performance of a great musical that I saw as a child, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (Andrew Loyd Webber).

Turns out the movie of it can be watched in its entirety on youtube, and it's great stuff:
