Chuck Mangione has made some tremendous big band jazz worth of listening. However, this piece with Esther Satterfield on vocals and Hamilton Symphony Orchestra playing the "Big Band" makes me shiver every time I listen to this.

Land of Make Believe


My sons liked to listen this when they were small, and still like.

The ultimate 23 minutes of pure music, put it in any genre you wish.
This Gabrielian era piece is definitely not pop-rock.

Piirpauke - Konevitsan kirkonkellot (Churchbells of Konevitsa)
Here with old Karelian 36-string kantele tune: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqOGHrPLfL8&feature=related


---
"kirkonkellot"

Am I mistaken or do I recognise in "kirkon" the German word Kirche, in the compound form "Kirchen-" and in "kellot"
the German word "Geläut"?
Kirchengeläut would be 'the belling" of the church(bells)".
Maybe Finnish has got it via Swedish word forms.

Edit:
If I'm right then it's a wonderful example how languages suck up foreign elements and assimilate them in a way that they look original and homemade.

I have just discovered this guy Arvel Bird on youtube videos.

He certainly gets around the genres with collaborations - folk, classical, rock.
Just not sure whether it is empowering (you can be proud of being native american and wear traditional dress) or twee, or slyly making fun.. the Ride Indian Ride motorcycle video - only that doesn't feel all that funny. Maybe i am just being a bit oversensitive and lacking in a sense of humour.
Ah, I have just seen the bio video, he was not brought up native, so it is certainly a conscious choice.

But he is a strong story of finding your own identity and not letting yourself be confined.
And, the music is OK.

Does anybody know about him, it sounds like he is famous?

Finnish word kirkko is a loan from Swedish kyrka. Finland was the last region in Europe to be Christianised in the beginning of the second millennia. Before that Finns did not use to build anything like churches. There were some sacred places called pyhättö. In modern Finnish pyhättö means any church, temple, mosque, chapel, or an altar, used for worshipping to any god.

Kello is an old indigenous Finnish word, not a loan.

I have just got to add this, because I have just come across it and I think it is so funny.

I suppose it belongs here as good as anywhere:

Icelandic male voice choir (get more than two men together here and they form a choir) being cowboys to American country music

yee haw!!

ride like the devil!

but I am into the voice as an instrument at the moment, I might have to start another thread on that, we are a bit musicless here at the moment...

In this Yes masterpiece from the year 1977 (album Going For The One)
I can hear echoes of Bach, Händel, Beethoven, Gregorian choirs,
Orf's Carmina Burana, and the good old rock 'n' roll.

Anyone here familiar with South Asian gamelan music?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ldPMifPbngc

Here's an example of mixture, Mission Impossible theme in gamelan style ;-)

Many western composers have used gamelan elements, particularly in progressive rock:
King Crimson, Mike Oldfiel, Zappa...

excaelis - thanks a lot for Sting and The Chieftains - Wow, what a contrast to Leonard Cohen's usual melancholy voice (much as I like it). The imstrumental interlude somehow fits.

I feel like something soothing

(not cmmplimentary, just a bit out of the ordinary

contrabass flute

and, while I am here

congratulations to the recorder player who got to the final (first ever recorder player to do so) of BBC Young Musician of the Year in UK. And to the winner (who does not go to music school. I mean, that must smart!)

semifinal - trotto

semifinal castello

seimifinal - bird

final, concerto - Vivaldi

all stunning, and varied. How she can slide like that on a recorder!

Charlotte Barbour-Condini, Recorder, Stoke Newington, London
She was 15 (may now be 16)
She does not go to a specialist music school, she has Saturday lessons at the Royal College of Music.
She does not know if she wants to specialise in recorder, or violin (she is leader of Hackney Youth Orchestra) or piano, as she has grade 8 distinction in both those instruments.
She is a music scholar at City of London School for girls, and is in choir, orchestra, and recorder ensemble.
She is also in a community youth music group called Kuumba
When not studying for her GCSE's (school leaving exams) she also runs for the local athletic club and represented City of London Schools in mini-marathon this year.

I mean, teenagers these days...load of slackers!

and she did not even win!

What happened?

I KNOW that there have been posts between the end of 2012 and today . . .

I remember posting tracks by the Red Hot Chilli Pipers and more by Freddie Mercury.

Confused . . .

You don't mean . . . Anxious
No, it couldn't be . . .Silenced

Anyway, here are two completely different views of The Red-Hot Chilli Pipers.

We Will Rock You
343 The Fallen

The second is not really mixed styles - it's a traditional-style lament, but it deserves to be seen/heard.
