Still fascinated by how bluegrass music seems to have grown roots everywhere... I guess if anything, it sort of proves what I've long thought- music is a language, with many dialects. The Malina Bros. learned to 'speak' bluegrass, and learned it quite well.

I'm listening to Fleetwood-Mac's "Mirage" album this morning, which was released 35 years ago today. Lindsey Buckingham borrowed a theme from Pachelbel's "Canon in D" for "Eyes of the World". Always made me smile when nobody could figure where they'd heard that before.  :)

They still do that one live too. https://youtu.be/7TV6BEwJEKI

The Melina Brothers was nice.

And of course the Modern Jazz Quarter is incomparable.

Needed to spend some big time on the computer today writing Annual Performance Reports for a number of grants.  I don't think I could have gotten through it without the help of Carlos S.

The first tune, Samba Pa Ti is one of my all time favorites and this live version is something:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Vi3UreI9vU
The second tune is a version of Europa Santana did at Montreaux with one of the giants of Sax - Wayne Shorter.   I had never been aware of it until today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2IJOxCQvtpk

This is parallel to Stanley and Gregory:
Akira Sitake and Kazunorni Kumagai

I came upon Akira via PBS, there was a show highlighting his ceramic skills and within the show he played an absolutely stunning banjo solo . . .  sadly i can not locate a link to the particular song he played but here is a sample of some of his work:

According to that guy, we all have been - at one tune or another.  ;D

He's right though... cello lesson #1 is 'halling' long sustained notes until you learn to get the correct amount of bow pressure. It also makes you work on intonation. "Canon in D" is the perfect example.

*and banjos are just fascinating, in any context it seems.  Nice!

CRobbins posted this over on another forum; I felt moved to steal idea & share here.  Thanks, Craig!

Very nice! Frisell has an amazing ability to take any song and put just the right amount of personal touch on it to make it his own but at the same time retain the essentials of the original.
