Thought I recognized that name Brian... what a monster guitar player! Two of them here:

Weird coincidence - in addition to being one of Chris Thile's Punch Bros. bandmates, Chris Eldridge is the son of Ben Eldridge, founding member of the Seldom Scene, that I just posted about last week. Small world.

Pearl Jam  - Milwaukee Oct, 20, 2014.
My brother 'gifted me' a ticket to go with him to that show. 
Fun listening back and remembering how Mr. Vedder (and crew) made the arena seem like a small club, and the audience/ fans should be included with that - there was an intimacy to the show that only comes from a mutual respect in all directions (stage to audience, audience to stage and person to person).

I started working on "Another Lonesome Morning" as a possibility for use in New River Bound.  This version from Emmy-Lou Harris https://youtu.be/IuKRfq2rQxA is closer to what we'll go with, but this live take from the Tony Rice Unit https://youtu.be/YoazxkGzyNY made me cry like a little girl whose kitty ran away.  :'(

Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile Both of these guys are EPIC musicians and masters of their instruments.  I am confused by the stoic and calm demeanor of the audience... they would have kicked me out of there.

From a different thread - Edgar even drops his bow.  Sloppy, just plain old sloppy.

Thanks for the Meyer/Thile, Paul.  Perhaps not so much stoic as enraptured.  When I listen to music, especially something like this example, I am quiet, still, focused, open, and receptive.  Perhaps this audience as well.

Dave, you are correct.
 I recall seeing Michael Hedges in a small venue, and the audience was certainly enraptured... captured.  He would finish a song and the audience would do a quick courteous applause and then silence as everyone scooted to the edge of their seats in anticipation of the next musical adventure. Seriously, the whole night was like that, real magic.

For me Meyer and Thile's energy and interplay (in that video) makes me want to laugh, cheer and bounce around. I would have ran up there and high fived them after the Smoothie Song!   :D ;D

    :)    Understandably.
______________________

I've probably posted this one before, it's a heavy favorite.  Interestingly, while I tend to think of it as something of a masterpiece, the one I've linked below, and which I love, is not Chopin's final version.

This one was written in 1834 and published after his death in 1855.  However in 1960, another version was discovered that was dated by Chopin in 1835.  That later version has a longer middle section, repeating parts of that section.  But the earlier version is performed much more often.

In this particular recording, I love the sound of the piano, the way it is mic'd and recorded, and the approach and playing of the musician.

It is the middle section, with its beautiful yet simple initial melody, that is so moving for me; and it is the fiery and thunderous first section that sets up the middle section.  Then the first section returns in all its power, and in its wake, that gentle melody of the middle section returns in a lower register as the piece closes.

Good stuff Brian.  :)

I've got a Harwell-Grice Band gig this afternoon... the Greensky boys put me in just the right frame of mind. I was just sitting here drinking coffee and trying to decide between the Starfire or Chain-Links.

Classical Sunday morning...
I am certain I have posted this before, as it truly is a favorite.
The Lark Ascending, for piano and violin.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3b0rN43q6jo

I can only hope that when my time comes that I hear this, and as the last whisper of the violins final solo fades out my soul shall be released from the vessel that carries it.

Paul (who really, REALLY likes this song)

That small-bodied Martin (42 or 45?) is awesome in drop-D tuning. Winwood has great taste in guitars!
