Hi all,
A friend of mine sent me this link a year or two ago and I forgot about it. What a singer Gary Brooker is--wow! I always loved this song. Neat to see some of the orchestral players smiling and responding to it.
All best,
Johnm

I noticed that this is from 2006, but his voice was still amazing almost 40 years after the song was released. Here’s some info on the song if anyone’s interested:

Hi all,
I really enjoyed this piece on the Chapman Stick, that Tony Levin plays with Peter Gabriel and King Crimson. I'm in awe when people become accomplished playing such complicated instruments. I can see how it would be exciting figuring out the possibilities for different sounds and approaches on the instrument.



All best,
Johnm

Hi all,
Here is Colin Hay, who was the lead singer with Men At Work, singing a solo acoustic version of Jimmy Webb's "Wichita Lineman". A beautiful song, and I sure like the way he sings it.



All best,
Johnm

That is lovely John, thanks.
I just watched a recent performance by Regina Carter with Emmett Cohen and his band. I cued the link up at a highlight. I've heard Regina before, but I don't remember her tone being so beautiful. This is an Ellington piece, Come Sunday.
If you are into jazz, I highly recommend checking out Emmett's YT channel - he does a performance with a guest I think every week, and there is plenty to check out from past weeks. Wonderful singers, horn men and women, etc.
I've been watching him off and on since this spring I think.

Hi all,
Here is Woody Herman's band doing Horace Silver's tune "Sister Sadie", featuring Sal Nistico on tenor sax. God, it would be fun to be able to play like that, and his time is killer, swings so hard.
All best,
Johnm

Hi all,
Here is Jennifer Warnes singing "Song of Bernadette", a song she co-wrote with Leonard Cohen, from a Smothers Brothers show in 1987, I believe.
All best,
Johnm

I have only just discovered this lady and am still investigating. She is an interesting singer and multi-instrumentalist.

Thanks Eric. I needed that. What brilliant talent, including the technical aspects of the film, the sound mixing in particular. Wow!
