Re: What are you listening to . . . (reprise)

This afternoon it’s going to be a 19th Century American composer I know nothing about, George Chadwick. I came across him through an American Scholar article (via Arts and Letters Daily) and thought he sounded interesting enough to give him a listen.

Some of his work is available on youtube, like his early Rip van Winkle Overture, and there’s more on Spotify to line up...

Cheers,
Chris

Gillian Welch

and Ozric Tentacles ......

https://youtu.be/4HqfLHTY4ws?t=440


yeah, I'm messed up. Pretty good guitar playing in both but about as different as guitar can be.

Re: What are you listening to . . . (reprise)

I like Gillian Welch, but as for the guitar playing, I'm not hearing Tony Rice in there.

The other stuff, well, ain't no lack of tasteless fretboard hotshots with no soul.

Oh that Oz Tent song is friggin awesome man. Topnotch. They are one of the best least known bands of all time. Seriously good musicians in addition to having imagination. Nothing else sounds like them. No soul?

Re: What are you listening to . . . (reprise)

I'm not talking about the band, just the guitar player. Come on, guys like this are dime a dozen (this from watching part of the Live Sunrise Festival gig). He can play, sure. But nothing he's doing is particularly exceptional. Then again, you did say "pretty good" and I won't disagree with that.

Re: What are you listening to . . . (reprise)

Yeah, I'm not a guitar player so I'm not as critical as someone who is. Ever hear of Steve Morse? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7CBpgvu4xg I've seen him play numerous times with different groups and he's always impressive. But does he have soul? I don't know.

And yes Tony Rice is great. I have a few albums with him and Bela Fleck and Edgar Meyer and Joshua Bell.

I don't know if you have heard this one. Skip Hop and Wobble. Jerry Douglas, Russ Barenberg & Edgar Meyer. Now this stuff has soul. Great album.

Re: What are you listening to . . . (reprise)

Oh sure, I know Steve Morse. Now you're talkin' about a great guitar player... but no, I don't think he's got a lot of soul, at least when he shreds (he's an extremely versatile player). Most shredders don't. And alas, as with so many of them, his shred tone sucks.

This guy, on the other hand... well, he's far from the fastest shredder alive, but he's damn well fast enough, and, gasp, he actually knows how to play a melody (wait for it), and this is truly one of the greatest tones ever to come out of a Stratocaster. As close to a violinist as I've ever heard on the electric guitar.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUECcou-34A

I'll check out Skip Hop and Wobble later, but I don't really have to. Hard to go wrong with those guys. Douglas and Meyer are big time studio hotshots. Russ, who I was acquainted with back in my Cambridge days, really isn't as well known as he should be, so I'm glad he's getting some well-deserved attention.

Yes indeed. And another vote of thanks to John Emmett for posting that heartwarming link

Until he died tragically-early of a brain tumour, I had a friend who was an English environmental activist. He used to play sax to his organic dairy herd, and claimed that they gave much bigger milk yields as a result!

____________

This is a kind of half-finished bulk reply in haste, as I've been away for a while, so am very behind on my replies...but here goes:

For Musket, because we both love June Tabor so much, and because I'm currently busy upgrading my wildlife garden. This one makes me cry every time I listen to it. She conveys such rich and deep undertows of emotion with that incredible and unique voice of hers...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUSywYlrrV8

____________

For John (Lord of the Arts): I wonder what The Dawntreader means to you? It is one of the most poignant songs I have ever heard because of the memories it engenders in me of a Norwegian man and his wooden ketch with sails the colour of dried blood.

Have you ever read John Masefield's poem "The Wanderer" I wonder? I have a much-treasured copy in my library.

In return, dear parallel soul, who gave a name to my beliefs, I offer this to you:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kZp0EUSNY8

_________

For Brian and David, who I am beseeching to suggest a list of ten of the most emotionally-charged classical music pieces to introduce this neophyte to the genre..... I only know and love the popular stuff like "The Planets", "The Four Seasons" "Carmina Burana" and the like, and I once horrified the stuffy colonial patrons of our local classical music concert hall, many years ago, by lying down on the cheap seats in the gallery so as to better enjoy Elgar's magnificent and moving "Dream of Gerontius" played by a sublimely sensitive set of musicians. I am an adrenaline junkie, so need something to fire my senses alive...or something to calm me and put me "back in me box", depending on my mood!

And in return, I give offer you this, in the hope that it will please you both. A very sensitive and talented English Christian poet and musician introduced me to this many years ago as one of the three things that inspired the creation of one of his very best poems (which I'll post to morrow on J E's poetry thread):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s31PA0e2gTE


_______________


Tipo. I am still working hard to find the time to listen to all the great new music you're introducing us all too, but am finding it hard to find solitude at present. In the meantime, as I am half-Irish, and married (technically speaking) to an Irish musician, so I will send you some Celtic music which I hope you might not have heard of before...I can't sing the bloomin' thing to save my life, no matter how hard I try!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtY6...tart_radio =1


_______________


OK, Part two tomorrow as the Pup and I are going to share some BBQ Spare ribs on the couch before bedtime (she gets an occasional break from her raw meat, bones and offal diet - I'm such a softie ).

I'll leave you with what I'm listening to now, because I'm so looking forward to seeing my long-distance best friend from Warrington again. We're going to spend a lovely quiet, nature loving and creative week together on Sark to celebrate my 65th Birthday in late May - when I officially become an old lady ...and seemingly with a toy boy ten years younger than me in tow!

This is dedicated to him for putting up with me through the horrors of trying to love an Asperger's/Bipolar cross throughout all my ups and downs for seven years now, and still wanting to be by my side
As he's deaf, he's never been able to hear the music of the songs that remind me of him, but he appreciates the lyrics

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZA3vZwxnKnE

Have a good night, and goodnight, everyone, whenever yours is due to occur

Sephie

Re: What are you listening to . . . (reprise)

The ineffable June.

I heard her do this one live, with Andy Cutting on diatonic accordion as on this recording, back in 1996 at a small church in Lexington, MA (the concert was sponsored by an old friend). Even though she never varies from the recordings, it's different seeing her live. She has tremendous stage presence. Most intense performer I've ever seen, when she's doing this kind of material.

She can also be quite playful on more lighthearted numbers, but that isn't what she's best known for.

Since we're talking English singers, we ought to pay tribute to poor Sandy Denny, with her best known tune while she was with Fairport Convention. Such a beautiful voice, such a messed up life.

Re: What are you listening to . . . (reprise)

Sephie, The Dawntreader is one of my favorite songs ever. Beautiful poetry, singing and guitar playing. It's meaning? Basically the romance of the sea, of far horizons and freedom.

This excerpt may sum it up best..

He aches and he learns to live
He stakes all his silver
On a promise to be free

We all get a longing sometimes for something just over the horizon, dont we. It aches, we don't know what it is.

Fold your fleet wings I have brought some dreams to share
A dream that you love someone
A dream that the wars are done
A dream that you tell no one but the gray sea
They'll say that you're crazy
And a dream of a baby
Like a promise to be free
Children laughing out to sea


I looked for The Wanderer but apparently copywrite issues keep it off the interwebs.
