How to truly listen | Evelyn Glennie

Published on May 14, 2007 In this soaring demonstration, deaf percussionist Evelyn Glennie illustrates how listening to music involves much more than simply letting sound waves hit your eardrums.

Ms. Glennie just might be my favorite person, let alone favorite artist. I am blessed to have seen and heard her perform live, up close and personal, at the State Uni of New York in Purchase several years ago. It was an amazingly musical thrill of a day, let me tell you.

It was made even better when I learned of her ‘secret,’ which you already know just from reading the description above. I didn’t count, but there were perhaps two dozen different percussion instruments arrayed across the stage, spanning at least 25 or 30 feet in width with a sizeable depth. Dame Glennie, (the Queen hadnt bestowed that honor on her yet, though), danced lightly on her feet amongst and around these instruments and made absolutely perfect music come out of them… over and over again, with no beat skipped, ever.

It was profound.

As much today as it was then.


And consequently, in my humble opinion, there is no one on this Earth more qualified to explain to us all exactly How To Listen. So pay attention, eh.

The following snippet is from her YouTube channel and describes a significant part of why she is so dear to my heart, as it goes deeper than just the music.

Dame Evelyn Glennie is the first person in musical history to successfully create and sustain a full-time career as a solo percussionist. As one of the most eclectic and innovative musicians on the scene today she is constantly redefining the goals and expectations of percussion, and creating performances of such vitality that they almost constitute a new type of performance. Find out more by exploring her channel.

Here is a great piece for you that shows her prowess to a T, even though it’s just one instrument… dig it!

Good gracious! This is Audio Research’s latest flagship power amplifier, the Reference 750SE. It is a monoblock. For audio novices, that means that it is a monophonic unit so you will need one for each channel, i.e., two for stereo. The specs are pretty impressive, -110dB is a great signal to noise spec for a power amp. They don’t list distortion, though. 🙂

It costs $70,000.00.

Throwing Copper is the second studio album by American alternative rock band Live, released on April 26, 1994 on former MCA Records subsidiary Radioactive Records. It was produced by Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads and was recorded at Pachyderm Recording Studio. Wikipedia

Artist: Live
Release date: April 26, 1994
Producer: Jerry Harrison
Label: Radioactive
Genres: Alternative rock, Hard rock, Post-grunge

I don’t know, but that is one cool creature!

Here’s a tune from the album…

live – Shit Towne – Throwing Copper

Published on Dec 12, 2008

Here’s an overview and history from that awful place…

Live (/laɪv/, often typeset as LĪVE or +LĪVE+) is an American rock band from York, Pennsylvania, consisting of Ed Kowalczyk (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Chad Taylor (lead guitar, backing vocals), Patrick Dahlheimer (bass), and Chad Gracey (drums).

Live achieved worldwide success with their 1994 album Throwing Copper, which sold eight million copies in the U.S.[1]The band had a string of hit singles in the mid-1990s including “Lightning Crashes“, which stayed at the top of the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart for 10 consecutive weeks and the Modern Rock Tracks (now Alternative Songs) chart for nine weeks from February 25 to April 22, 1995.[2] The band has sold over 20 million albums worldwide.[3] Their last three studio albums fared only moderately well in the U.S., but they continued to enjoy success in the Netherlands, South Africa, Australasia, and Brazil.

When touring, Live has used additional musicians, including Ed Kowalczyk’s younger brother Adam, British keyboardist Michael “Railo” Railton and rhythm guitarist Christopher Thorn of Blind Melon.

On November 30, 2009, Taylor revealed that what had initially been termed a two-year hiatus was more likely the end of the band. An acrimonious split soon occurred, with Kowalczyk leaving the band. However, Live continued with singer Chris Shinn and released the album The Turn in October 2014. Kowalczyk rejoined the band in December 2016 and in 2018 they released a new EP “Local 717”.

I had not heard of this group, which isn’t surprising and I think they sound relatively interesting.

Lowell Fulson – Lonesome Christmas (Swing Time Records 1950)

Published on Nov 28, 2010

“Lonesome Christmas” is a song written by Lloyd Glenn and peaked at #7 on the R&B charts the same year. Lowell Fulson (March 31, 1921 — March 7, 1999) was a big-voiced blues guitarist and songwriter, in the West Coast blues tradition.

Fulson was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He also recorded for business reasons as Lowell Fullsom and Lowell Fulsom. After T-Bone Walker, Fulson was the most important figure in West Coast blues in the 1940s and 1950s.

I’d love to spend this Christmas sitting by the fire with you
I’d love to spend this Christmas sitting by the fire with you
I’m so happy for the moment that we share the whole day through

Jingle bells is ringing children playing out in the snow
Jingle bells is ringing children playing out in the snow
They’ll be turkey on the table Christmas presents on the floor

Everyone seems so happy seasons greeting fill the air
Everyone seems so happy seasons greeting fill the air
Santa Claus is spreading Christmas presents everywhere

When I go shopping there’s one thing I’d like to do
When I go shopping there’s one thing I’d like to do
Send a pretty present signed with all my love to you

I won’t be home to help you decorate the Christmas tree
I won’t be home to help you decorate the Christmas tree
I’ll be thinking about you and I hope you’ll think of me

I know you look so lovely standing beneath the mistletoe
I know you look so lovely standing beneath the mistletoe
I could hold you and kiss you tell you why I love you so

I’d love to spend this Christmas sitting by the fire with you
I’d love to spend this Christmas sitting by the fire with you
Drinking eggnog with fruitcake just like we used to do

I know I won’t be with you baby on that happy holiday
Yes I won’t be with you on that happy holiday
I can wish you a Merry Christmas in an old and fashioned way

Oh, dear Lord, this is so sad…

Freddie King – Christmas Tears (Federal Records 1961)

Published on Oct 27, 2010

“Christmas Tears” is a Christmas song written by: Z. Bridge (A), S. Thompson-R.C. Wilson (B).

Freddie King (September 3, 1934 – December 28, 1976) was an American blues guitarist and singer. He has been described as one of the “Three Kings” of electric blues guitar, along with Albert King and B.B. King. He was an influential guitarist with hits for Federal Records in the early 1960s. His soulful and powerful voice and distinctive guitar style inspired countless musicians, particularly guitarists (Eric Clapton is a notable example). He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.

King based his guitar style on Texas and Chicago influences. His best-known recordings include the singles “Have You Ever Loved a Woman” (1960) and his Top 40 hit “Hide Away” (1961) and albums such as the early, instrumental-packed Let’s Hide Away and Dance Away with Freddy King (1961) and Burglar (1974), which displayed his mature versatility as both a guitarist and a singer in a range of blues and funk styles. He was one of the first bluesmen to have a multiracial backing band at live performances.

I hear sleigh bells ringing
But I haven’t heard a word from you in years
I hear sleigh bells ringing
But I haven’t heard a word from you in years
Ooh I hear a choir singing
And I’m just sitting here crying Christmas tears

Everybody’s singing Merry Christmas
As they watch the starry skies fill with reindeer
Everybody’s singing Merry Christmas
As they watch the starry skies fill with reindeer
Ooh I’m smiling on the outside
But on the inside I’m crying Christmas tears

Oh you’ve been gone for a long long time
It’s Christmas and I can’t get you off of my mind
It seems that you’ve been gone like one-hundred years or more
But if you were here with me I could hang Merry Christmas on my door

I need you darling to hold me tight
I need you dear on this Christmas night
As I sit and think of the lonely years
I can’t help but cry Christmas tears
Woo Christmas tears

This is a lonesome time for many of us. So lonesome.

At first mom and papa called their little boy Ned
They raised him on the banks of the river bed
A houseboat tied to a big tall tree
a home for my papa and my mama and me

The clock strikes three papa jumps to his feet
Already mama’s cookin’ papa somethin’ to eat
At half past papa he’s ready to go
he jumps in his piro headed down the bayou

He’s got fishin’ lines strung across the Louisiana Rivers
Gotta catch a big fish for us to eat
Headin’ traps in the swamps
catchin’ everythin’ he can

Gotta make a livin’ he’s a Louisiana man
gotta make a livin’ he’s a Louisiana man

Muskrat hides a hangin’ by the dozen
even got a lady mink a muskrat’s cousin
Pile of hide drying in the hot hot sun
tomorrow papa’s gonna turn them into mon

Well they call mama Rita and my daddy Jack
A little baby brother on the floor that’s Mac
Riz and Liz are the family twins
big brother Ed’s on the bayou fishin’

On the river float papa’s great big boat
that’s how my papa goes into town
He takes every bit of the night and day
Then ever reach the place where the people stay

I can hardly wait till tomorrow comes around
That’s the day my papa takes the furs to town
Papa promised me that I could go
even let me see a cowboy show

I saw the cowboys and Indians for the first time then
I told my papa  I gotta go again
Papa said son we got the lines to run
we’ll come back again first there’s work to be done

He’s got fishin’ lines…

“I don’t remember the very first shots I took with a fish eye but these were really early. This one was done on small film, which means that you don’t get the full circle [from the fish eye], which is a drag. But they still look pretty good. This is the first time we went to India, not when we went with the Maharishi. We stopped in Dehli on the way back from the Philippines, and the British Airways people took us around. When you get to India you realise you don’t know what’s going on. We did have a good time in India and I suppose this shot is pretty atmospheric.” -Ringo

Yesterday – Roy Clark

Roy Clark – Yesterday When I Was Young

This song… this song describes my life to a T. And I swear I never met the composer.

From Guitar Player, where I heard this news just now:

Roy Clark, Country Guitarist and ‘Hee-Haw’ Host, Dies at 85

The legendary country guitarist succumbed to complications from pneumonia at his home in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

by Jackson Maxwell

Roy Clark, country guitarist, co-host of the long-running TV series Hee Haw and Country Music Hall of Fame member, has died at the age of 85. Clark succumbed to complications from pneumonia at his home in Tulsa, Oklahoma, accordingto publicist Sandy Brokaw.

Clark, an incredibly gifted string musician, made his first appearance at the Grand Ole Opry at the age of 17. In 1960, Clark opened for Wanda Jackson in Las Vegas, and would go on to co-headline in Lake Tahoe with Andy Griffith and appear on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand in the years that followed.

In 1963, he had his first Top Ten hit with his somber version of Bill Anderson’s “Tips of My Fingers.” Six years later, he scored a second Top Ten hit with “Yesterday, When I Was Young,” and became the co-host, with Buck Owens, of Hee Haw. First airing from 1969-1971, and again in syndication from 1971-1993, Hee Haw became an iconic country music touchstone, and more than 600 episodes of the show were produced in total.

Throughout Hee Haw‘s long run, Clark maintained his fruitful solo career, earning further Top Ten hits with “I Never Picked Cotton” and “If I Had It to Do All Over Again.” Clark also displayed his six (or, in the case of his cover of “(Ghost) Riders in the Sky, 12)-string prowess with his instrumental covers of pieces like “Malagueña.”

In 1982, Clark won a Grammy for best Country Instrumental Performance for “Alabama Jubilee,” and opened his own theater in Branson, Missouri the following year. Performing at storied venues such as New York’s Carnegie Hall, the Sporting Club in Monte Carlo and the Rossiya Theatre in Moscow, Clark remained a popular touring act as late as the 2000s.

Baseball legend Mickey Mantle, a longtime fan and friend of Clark’s, requested that Clark perform “Yesterday, When I Was Young” at his funeral, a promise Clark kept when Mantle died in 1995.

Clark is survived by extensive family and his wife of 61 years, Barbara. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.
