Re: What are you listening to right now?

@ragamatrix, @ohnonot frowns on not consolidating music links down to a post or two.

No harm nor foul, though, I do it all the time when I've had too many beers.

First, the sublime. You're comfortable with men in suits singing very high, I hope. Because this is way better than Queen or the BeeGees...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N7XH-58eB8c

More sinful, electric fiddle, Jean-Luc Ponty, live, 1988...

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

My musical experience is meh. @glittersloth was hit on by Boy George, I was hit on by MTT, where do those stories stand in the Tales of Infamy? Who can say.

25 years as a classical violinist and violist. Graduate of New England Conservatory of Music. First their prep school and orchestra, we toured the U.S.S.R. when I was 15 (1980 under Brezhnev. I saw Lenin and the Kremlin. Then we went to Leningrad. I saw the Hermitage. I saw every room in the Hermitage. And we saw the grounds of the Summer Palace, and that made me turn gay instantly. I think. It's very confusing with all that gold and water and that big man in the middle with his big... fountain.)

The ultimate golden shower.

2 years under Michael-Tilson Thomas (not literally, get your mind out of the gutter) as both violinist and violist of The New World Symphony in '90 and '91, I was principal viola (first chair, first stand, you create the bowings, you lead the section and rehearse them if they are sucking). Hartt School of Music, '92, why the heck is this a 404...

https://www.hartford.edu/hartt/programs … education/

NEA grant to Iowa, '93, that group recorded a 12 track demo album at Prince's Paisley Park studio in Chanhassen, MN. I don't have a copy. Prince was very, very short. Looked like a model, he was in the full pimp suit and boots. You weren't supposed to talk to him. Our band leader, the guitarist, said "Hey man, you're the greatest dancer I've ever seen." Prince smiled, but we all know MJ and Fred A. were better.

6 years freelancing in the Twin Cities, Minnesota Opera, played in a string quartet with the principle second violinist of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, did some concerts with that orchestra on viola, Hugh Wolff, Bobby McFerrin.

Did a studio session with other members of the SPCO string section, we're all credited on the single Twenty Foreplay from the Janet Jackson greatest hits double-album, "Design of a Decade".

It's awful, you can barely hear the strings. I think they might have just payed and credited us and then used synths instead...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLjtdiNLK10

Backed up The Who without Townshend at the Minnesota State Fair, 4 months with the Thunder Bay Symphony, 6 years in Baltimore as violist in Harrisburg, PA, Annapolis, MD, and Baltimore. I was in the Baltimore Opera pit orchestra, was in a string quartet that regularly played at the governor's mansion in Annapolis, was principle violist for the Annapolis and Harrisburg symphonies, and was substitute violist for the Baltimore Symphony for two years. That was a sweet gig. I played behind Stevie Wonder for the opening of Ravens Stadium. I played 3 mostly very boring shows with James Taylor (nice man, we talked Boston, Steve Gadd was the drummer though and absolutely crushed it on Country Road, every time).

Gave it up, don't want that audience, don't want to hang with those musicians, don't want to play Tchaikovsky. Been playing the electric since I was 15, that's what I want.

Favorite band: The Police

Favorite artist: Pete Townshend

Favorite instrument: Piano

Favorite piece of music...

I hate Christmas, this is the only thing that gets me through it. Year after year after year make it stop.

Favorite movie score is from my favorite movie. Unbelievably, it's Vangelis and not Morricone...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3fz6CC45ok

Favorite other musicians: Miles Davis, Joni Mitchell, J.S. Bach, Brad Mehldau, Shirley Bassey.

Dame Shirley, the UK's most successful artist, ever (at the time, I'm sure the Spice Girls beat that, or Adele).

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Zappa, 1973 live, Jean-Luc Ponty on electric violin.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BynKe8BjIxk

-edit- Almost all of that is scored. The solos are improvised, George Duke, Zappa for sure, but all that mayhem in between is written down, xylophone breaks, leg kick and all. Those folks are working hard for their paycheck, Frank was a genius, and very strict. '73. Wah saxophone, xylophone, slide trombone, electric violin, keys, bass, drums, and Frank.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

^ At 21:26 it switches to a different live show of Montana. Not great audio quality. Amazing performance.

The studio version...
