Summer's Here: Sunday was chuck filled with surprises and good times.
First of all it was Sunday (the Lord's day) which is always a good day.
Second, it was Father's day. I especially love (Mother and) Father's day because they remind us of just how valuable our parents really are.
And finally, it was the beginning or first day of summer. I remember as a kid going down to the high school which wasn't too far from us. They would allow the local kids to swim for free in the late mornings and early afternoons. Those were the days. I remember ice cream and fourth of July fireworks. Definitely things...
Dream Theater - Score: Thats a great band, why did I discover it so late ? Regard the first 2 songs as "warmup", then starting with the 3rd song "Another won" and "Afterlife", "Under a glass moon", etc ... the band shows a brilliant performance. Amazingly how error free they play this complex stuff on stage. I recommend this to everybody. its simply great. And all these guys are really great musicians !
Candy Dulfer - Live in Amsterdam (2001), DVD. Very Cool Funk Music !!: This is a really awesome DVD. Very much better than her "Live in Montreaux" DVD. Here the atmosphere is much better and every title really shines. Nice "adult" re-arrangement of her songs which are sometimes tad a bit hectic in the older studio version.
I can recommend this DVD to everybody who likes funk music and nicely arranged sax solos. Special guests here are i.e.: Dave Stuart with 2 nice songs, Candy's father who also plays sax (very nice duett) and a singer which I can't remember by name.
Buy it, you will not be disappointed !...
