THE SUNDAY CONCERT: COLOR ME BLUE FOR MILES

Today´s concert is  another classic. Some people will tell me that it is sacrilege, but it is not. It brings us closer to hw it felt at the time (and this coming from somebody who loves blank and white).

This is the Miles Davis Quintet, live from the Teatro dell´Arte in Milano. Recorded in 1964, it features Miles Davis on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on sax, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums. Yes (drums and….jaw drop!). Fantastic outfit.

The full concert: Autumn Leaves, My Funny Valentine, All Blues, All of You, and Joshua.

Enjoy!

Until next time!

POPCORN FRIDAYS: LE CHOO CHOO CRIMINAL

WHY POPCORN FRIDAYS

I believe that at times like the present, where the pandemic related pains haunt us, there may be nothing better to do on a Friday evening than making a bit of popcorn and watching an old movie.

It can be in black and white or color, although, I love black and white and mono sound movies. They bring your brain down to a level of simplicity in terms of “processing power”, that is hard to beat.

For a start, the monochrome picture is asking a lot less to decipher from your brain. A full blast color 7 channel surround movie will exacerbate your brain functions so as to deal with all that complex, multi-layered information. A B&W mono sound movie just floats in, and relaxes you, while still being entertaining. On top of that, the stories are from a reality that is not our own in this day and age, so as we watch, it will feel a lot more like one of those stories mom or dad used to read to us before we went to bed.

The end result, is utter satisfaction, relaxation, and the discovery that these stories turn out to have a lot more in common with our lives that we expected, albeit far from the technological wizardry, and imbued in certain innocence that seems so distant from of our contemporary daily lives.

So, I hope you enjoy these popcorn Fridays.

TODAY´S MOVIE

This time it is in color. A Franco-British movie with an European cast.

THE MAN WHO WATCHED TRAINS GO BY (1952) is a crime drama film, based on the 1938 novel by acclaimed mystery and suspense French writer, Georges Simenon and directed by Harold French.

It has an all-European cast, including Claude Rains in the lead role of Kees Popinga, the man watching the trains who is infatuated with Michele Rozier (Märta Torén). The film was later released in the United States in 1953 under the title The Paris Express (so you may have seen it before under that title). 

Enjoy!

Until next time!

TODAY´S MOVIE

This time it is vengeance. Very British vengeance. Cheat and you will face a husband´s fury. And the Brits are always great at making a twisting plot and holding the suspense all the way through. 

DEAR MURDERER is the story of a businessman plans to kill his cheating wife’s lover and make it look like suicide. Directed by Arthur Crabtree, it stars Eric PortmanGreta Gynt, and Dennis Price . This movie was a fairly big hit in 1947.

Enjoy!

Until next time!

THE SUNDAY CONCERT: HANIA RANI LIVE FROM STUDIO S2

A different Sunday Concert, but different may mean to many of you, a day of discovery.

The full live set video was premiered on the evening before the annual Piano Day worldwide celebrations (March 29th of this year). The motivation to make the recording of the live performances which became the release ‘Live from Studio S2’ came from the invitation from the Berlinale Film Festival.

Hania says: “I decided to rearrange some of my favorite songs, which I have been performing live for years. Recorded live and captured in the iconic Studio S2, one of the recording studios of Polish Radio in Warsaw. The hall is fully covered with light wood, which reminds me of other Radio Studios all around the world – like Funkhaus in Berlin for example. There is a kind of intimacy when playing the little piano in this huge and also very high venue.” — @Hania Rani

Enjoy!

Until next time!
