For those of you afflicted with misfortunes that prevented you from hearing me last Tuesday, there are now videos from my performances of God Bless the Child and Night of the Thumpasorus Peoples up on YouTube! Be advised, these’ll probably be up for only a month or so, while I try to find a quieter place to make follow-up recordings of these, and other pieces from that program. Enjoy!
So, I perform Kevin Clark’s “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” more often than all but a handful of other pieces. It’s beautiful music, and an absolute joy to play. That said, I always have difficulty describing it to people who haven’t yet heard it. Thankfully, I remembered that we live in the 21st century, and have a solution for such problems. Check out the Media page for the fruit of yet another late-night recording session! Or, y’know, just look below:
The footage from the Studio Café video shoot back in March is now live on YouTube! My performance of Jacob T.V.’s “Pimpin” starts right after the opening credits. As a bonus, at 4:30, you’ll see one of the luckiest escapes from a technical malfunction I’ve ever experienced. S’what makes live performance exciting, right? Right! Remember kids, friends don’t let friends perform with decrepit equipment.
Unfortunately, my rendition of Benjamin Taylor’s “Drum ‘N’ Bari” was omitted from the YouTube video. Possibly for timing? Your guess is as good as mine. Already, I can feel my memory of that take turning rose-tinted. I’ll be talking it up as the Take That Got Away for awhile yet.
