Steaks From Sacred Cows, Cheap
Hey db, finally got around to watching the YouTube. Great find. It's the "emotion" stuff! :)Jeebus, the music and the words are so apparently "simple", as in "cut down to the bone" Whamo!
The Hook always has a story to tell, VG.;>)
db, yanno, this is probably the essence of music, in some fundamental way. Telling a story. Thus speaks me, the "music expert" (not).
Sure, storytelling's an essential part of the form, VG...From opera, to blues, to folk, and so on. The best jazz musicians tell a story without saying a word.;>)
db- without saying a word- oh, such a great response. Hard to know where to start, me being the "music expert" and all ;) but do you mean something like this?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEC8nqT6Rrk
sorry, maybe not, but with my limited musical knowledge, "Miles" is always a safe fall-back choice. ;)
and, this is actually much purer and energetic performance of "So What" imho. Me being the "music expert" an all... ;)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1337EJxwwDY
or, possibly this:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4TbrgIdm0E
Ah, but that might open up the long-standing muso's dispute of 'hot' vs. 'cool' jazz, VG...Many a tumbler of cheap spirits has been spilled and high-strung feelings plucked roughly over that.;>)Indeed, Miles' Kind Of Blue period, with its emphasis on modality, rich harmonic development, and the sophisticated group interaction of a stellar lineup would be an excellent example of dialog without words.
"hot" vs. "cool" jazz eh? so, I've blindly stumbled onto/ into a controversy. Interesting.
