Re: What are you listening to right now?

The Endless Enigma - a fine performance of Emerson' Lake and Palmer's opening track from Trilogy, from an international assembly of musicians.

Rachel (the pianist), from California, has been blind from birth and is noted for her interpretations of ELP, Joe Satriani and other rock tracks.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Carabao, probably the most famous band from Thailand, and maybe SE Asia. They're really pretty good.

Some years ago I was in NW Thailand near the Burmese border, and a popular local hangout was specializing in "Yaa Dong" ie "Pickled Medicine" - herbs, roots etc that had been steeped in alcohol for a while. Just a little hut where the cute lady behind the counter chose the right "medicine" for you depending on how you felt. Spent a couple of very pleasant evenings. One album played on the cassette player above the counter that I specially liked turned out to be Carabao's #4. Accoustic laid-back sound, incomprehensible (unless you speak Thai) words, but strangely soothing. I still love this album, maybe you'll like it too:

+1. That man had a huge impact on rock drumming. I didn't know he wrote most of the lyrics as well...

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Second favourite Carabao album, "Kanpucha" about Cambodia, came out not long after the end of Pol Pot I think:

More from the international assembly of musicians featuring Rachel Flowers - Karn Evil 9 (1st Impression). I really like this setup (Rachel in particular is a musical prodigy) and I expect I'll be posting even more of their work in the future.

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Nobody has posted a Neil Peart Drum Solo yet? Well, let's begin...

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

Man, that left-handed stick at about 1:25 says it all: chops plus style. Just listen to him hammer that snare at 4:25!

Let's hear some Rush before the solo...

Whoever or whomever mic'ed that piano had no clue, Glass' (lol) voice intro is clear as a bell compared to the piano. PUT ONE MIC INSIDE THE PIANO AND MIX IT WITH THE AMBIENT MICS, YOU UTTER PILLOCK!!!

Re: What are you listening to right now?

^So many things to say about those two videos.

The first one with that incredible all-star lineup:
Beautiful groove.

John Mc's fingers flying over the fretboard as fast as ever (how does he do that?)

Ravi Coltrane sounding just like his father.

Santana... a bit overawed maybe? (He's not an arrogant guy.) I love Santana's music, but here he just plays a couple of his standard riffs and goes into the theme. Hmmm... has he lost his spark over the years? As to jazz credentials, he got them through hard work and being a great musician, but his roots were the blues, and you can still hear it. Same applies to McLaughlin. My favourite Jazzy Santana would have to be the "Welcome" album (example), and the wonderful "Caravanserai", both going back to the early 70s.

Generally find his more recent stuff less inspiring, but now listening to that second video and he sounded definitely OK at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2015.

But to me, the essence of Santana's genius is not in intricate melodic invention but the way he can sometimes hit a bent note and say something directly to your soul.

I completely agree with your analysis/assesment/opinion! Especially about Carlos looking a bit lost in that performance.

But Santana has major jazz influences, as does John McL. I mean, Love Devotion Surrender is Coltrane meets Gospel...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtyJRW3_JsQ

I didn't come up with that description, I stole it. If you have the time, this is a nice interview of Carlos...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtyJRW3_JsQ

Honestly, John, I think Santana shied away from fusion because it was losing popularity and wasn't making him money...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marathon_(Santana_album)

But blues, hell yeah. Santana with Clapton is pretty nice...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMqHQzJ … j&index=13

^ Yeah, that's a must listen. For the less musically educated, on this track Clapton is the guitar with the thinner tone but does more string bends, Santana's tone sounds fuller and has more distortion to it. When the drums start, Clapton plays lead on the new "head" (People, people, people, people!) while Carlos does those fast rythym chords, and then they switch back and forth (it's literally titled "The Calling", Ol' Skool Antonio Vivaldi made it popular way back in the day).

Anyway, opening of the song, Clapton starts and then plays backup to Carlos' intro solo for less than a minute, then Clapton does a quick and very wicked solo. You should be able to hear the difference from there.
