“Unchain my heart” Rita Payés Sant Andreu Jazz Band

Ok, let’s celebrate WordPress 5.0 “Bebo” with a Youtube video:

“Unchain my heart” Rita Payés Sant Andreu Jazz Band

Should I cite my own comment on that video of Joan Chamorro and his students? Here you go:

Wow. Perfection. My Christmas or birthday wish? Your “presents…” and “Jazzing” series. I’ll order all of them.

myself, in a comment on Youtube

Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

More about the song: see Wikipedia

A few more cool videos

Here’s another great lesson from the Vox Earworm Channel on Youtube:

I know most of the music presented here, but it’s surely another thing if you are younger than me. And the channel as a whole is good – even Mike loves it!

And here’s a different, funnier one – featuring our “marmotte” from Wikiloops:

That guy has some more funny videos – but it helps if you understand some French for some of them.


Joe Bonamassa – “Sloe Gin”

Really diggin’ the Blues again lately. Here’s a good one, I know that song from when I was young. And an awesome power performance as well, showing how a Paula should be used:

I also listened to some real old stuff, but as you see and hear, there’s hope with those who are still living 🙂

Magalí Datzira sings Nature Boy

Oh wow – sometimes Joan Chamorro and his students take difficult pieces which they study and perform. But this one, wow – even with much too much reverb (recorded from camera mic instead of mixing console?), this is so good:

Oh, and Magalí is a real good double bass player as well as you might know if you’re reading here regularly.

The song “Nature Boy” by Eden Ahbez, well – I have it in my real book, and it looks pretty simple, but isn’t. The very first version I heard was the one by George Benson, and that one *is* simple, at least the rhythmic part of it. Still a song which makes you melt away with its beauty and very strong message:

That one came out when I was about 20 or so. I’ve been to a recording studio with 19, then later heard this – and I was hooked forever. My first steps into the direction of Jazz were pretty sweet as you can hear. But Magalí in the first video above? She’s much more advanced than I’ll ever become.

“Bravo y brava!” is what I just wrote as a comment onto Joan’s Youtube Channel.

Thanks for reading, watching, and listening.

Music. Photography. Design.

Wow – this is super interesting, because it brings together all these creative arts:

Thanks Estelle – this video and the one about Giant Steps brought you a new subscriber!

To my readers: you know I love both music *and* photography – thanks for your interest as well!
