Switched to Feist.
Hmm. Another Canadian.
One of my teen students brought this one in to learn.
I asked around and all my teen students know it so it's what the youngsters are listening to along with Gundam Style
Turns out it's just a I V7 tune that modulates from C up to Eb.
So it's a great tune to play along with and work on scales.
I was listening to Jeff Buckley at work, today. Recommended.
To tell you the power of teh Google, I forgot the name of this singer, but I remembered he died in 1997 (at age 30). So I Googled "singer died 1997." Fourth hit. He's not #1 because 1997 is the year John Denver died, too.
I was "exposed" to this meme awhile ago. It's "gandam," not "gundam." It's a region in China, not a giant mecha -- the linky I posted mentions the rather common spelling error.
A giant mecha would have been more interesting on Good Morning America, tho.

It's also called, "Pete's doing too many things at once. Again."
I just discovered this guy.
he is great
I'm trying to figure out what he's got on the tuning pegs. Pickup? Extension?
First, an early Christmas present to myself: St. Vincent's Strange Mercy album (that's her last album before her collaboration with that dude from Talking Heads). The title track is on YouTube.
Second, I've been listening to Gabriel Fauré for the past few nights. Quote from the Wikipedia article that I find very accurate:
I'm extremely fond of "Requiem in D Minor," but his short pieces, like this Sicilienne, are quite nice, too. (BTW, I'm fond of Darius Milhaud, too, and I can hear a good bit of Fauré in some Milhaud stuff -- but I haven't been listening to him, lately.)The music critic Jerry Dubins suggests that Fauré "represents the link between the late German Romanticism of Brahms ... and the French Impressionism of Debussy."
For me it's a CD I got for my wife for Xmas - Maximilian Hornung playing Dvorak's Cello concerto and Saint-Saens cello suite and Romance. Not sure if it's available stateside yet. I was lucky enough to see him in a small concert earlier this year. Stunning - if you get the chance, go see....
I might listen to that tonite. YouTube has it. Not by Maximilian Hornung, but I've liked the stuff I've heard from Saint-Saëns.Originally Posted by kev

Not today, but on Jan 1st is the Mummers parade-Philly;s folk-new years street party.
Think "Italian mardi-gras" meets DCI meets Broadway & youre getting close.
"String Bands" are the feature musical groups,
consisting of mostly Saxes, Banjo's, Accordions, Glockenspeils, & a couple other stragglers.
No strings or brass allowed.
Bass saxes are obligatory. Some bands have several.
Wishing you all a 2013 thats better than your 2012!!! See you all next year!!!!
Listening to "Mission to Moscow" and working that nasty bari line all holiday break. Yes, we play it that fast.
I'm gettin' closer to where I wanna be with it. But when I practice it too long, I stop reading the music and just play!
Steve Reich: Music for 18 musicians... Some hardcore trans-inducing stuff! Awesome bass clarinets!
I'm listening to Glen Miller's In The Mood. Playing that song as one of our many songs for Jazz Ensemble and possibly for the Dubuque Oktoberfest. Amazing song in my opinion
