Fred Hersch recently played the Vanguard for several weeks in a row apparently. Last night, singer daughter covered this song, which I had never heard.

The vocalist here is Norma Winstone, who wrote the lyrics to Hersch's tune.

Just another Norma Winstone I hadn't heard. This song will just take you away. It does me, anyway. Adding to my playlist.

🎵 DD Juke Box V2.0: Simon & Garfunkel - Sounds of Silence
« Reply #1312 on: January 13, 2019, 12:13:08 AM »
We're all getting so OLD.  :'(

At least S&G can stilll do the classics with emotion though.  And amazingly, Art Garfunkel's voice has held up well.  Not many males can sing this range.

I was ranting to Contrary yesterday on this very point. Ten years ago I was still pretty strapping, had plenty of vigor and still nurtured the notion of a rural bug-out. Now ten years later the notion of a life separated from what LD would call the wealth care extraction system seems utterly foolhardy. And the physical labor needed to perform even simple maintenance tasks becomes even more inconceivable. As I noted on another thread lately, old age really comes on you fast when it comes. I am still rubbing my chin from the mugging.

Mongolian Heavy Metal Band Shreds with Traditional Instruments and Throat Singing

posted by Jason Kottke   Jan 10, 2019

For years, Mongolian folk metal band The Hu have been honing their distinctive brand of heavy metal, combining the Western musical form with traditional instruments and throat singing. From an NPR piece on the band:

Mongolian rock combines traditional Mongolian instruments, like a horsehead fiddle (morin khuur), Jew’s harp (tumur khuur) and Mongolian guitar (tovshuur) with the pounding bass and drums of rock.

It also involves singing in a guttural way known as throat singing while throwing heads back and forth reminiscent of the headbanging of ’80s heavy metal bands like Metallica. Those who study Mongolian music believe one reason The Hu has proved so popular with outsiders is this combining of modern and historical and Eastern and Western elements.

The group’s music videos take a bit to get going, but once the music starts, it’s pretty cool. (via open culture)

« Reply #1318 on: February 20, 2019, 04:33:32 PM »

The Oldest known musical melody performed by the very talented Michael Levy on the Lyre. This ancient musical fragment dates back to 1400 B.C.E. and was discovered in the 1950ís in Ugarit, Syria. It was interpreted by Dr. Richard Dumbrill. He wrote a book entitled ďThe Archaeomusicology of the Ancient Near East.Ē Here is a link to it: http://sas.academia.edu/RichardDumbriÖ Check out Michael Levyís website, anancientlyre.com!

Re: DD Juke Box V2.0 ---- Poco and the Zombies
« Reply #1319 on: March 03, 2019, 03:02:41 PM »
Both Poco and the Zombies were in town this weekend. Poco's line-up over the years has changed a lot, but they still tour. I think the Zombies are fronted by the same two guys as back in the old days.

I thought about going out to see one or both, but the fog and drizzle and persistent cool weather was a good excuse. Those guys are probably lucky I stayed home, because anytime I go out to see one of my favorite artists from back in the day, there's about a 50-75% chance they drop dead within a year. Yep, it's happened to me three times now at least.  We are going to see the Stones. Keith and Mick better watch their step.
