Current Fav Musician
« on: December 05, 2017, 04:37:34 PM »

Iíve been a fan of Julian Lage, both his music and his playing, for some years. But since heís taken up electric guitar, specifically the Telecaster  :D, Iíve become a big fan. Heís got all the chops but uses Ďem sparingly and in service to the music heís playing. Heís jazzy and melodic, spicing his tunes with out notes and little atonal blips. No matter the musical situation heís in, he knows how to both fit in and elevate the proceedings.

A live clip posted yesterday to Julianís YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/t-ReVx3QttA. The piece is from an upcoming album with his trio. The tone he gets here from his Tele is IMO as good as it gets.

In a very different vein, hereís another clip featuring him and his recurring acoustic duo partner Chris Eldridge (from the Punch Bros.): https://youtu.be/W02IPZ1KWZc.

Enjoy!

For the past couple of months I've been listening to all I can find of Friedrich Gulda, the great Austrian concert pianist.  His renditions of Mozart and Beethoven are superb!  He had a reputation as being quite eccentric.  To protest the strict dress code expected at formal concerts, he once walked out on the stage and performed naked! :D   Anyway, listen to how smoothly his notes flow, like a gentle woodland stream.  It is perfection!

Strange day today.

After lunch I came back home, made another coffee, and for some reason best known to itself I felt compelled to make the most of being, currently, the only guy in the block, so wall-mounted speaker vibrations no social problem.

For the first time in years, on went the turntable and after I struggled to get the thing's speed right - the little wheel that sets it seems to have become far too sensitive to set the sweet spot - I wondered what to play. The first thing I found was Womack & Womack's Conscience from who knows when. I had originally found it a bit draggy, but now, it fits me perfect! I'd bought it because of one track: Teardrops (reminds me baby, of you).
