Hi Alex -
I listened to “Brad Mehldau & Mark Guiliana - Hungry Ghost”. Two very talented musicians. Thanks for the WE tip.
Have a great upcoming week.
Best Regards

Good evening Alex!!

Mehliana with "Hungry Ghost"...... an exceptional tune/perfomance of two most talented guys, that I really enjoyed in twice sights. First the excellent record ( wow, I could hear every single tone and or sound coming from the stage...!!). Second the great musicality and affinity Brad Mehldau and Mark Giuliana showed here. Not easy to let you go playing your instrument while the partner is doing his job concentrating in his play as well..... more than accordance and understanding between both needed!!
Loved the sound of the rhodes, simply & pure ( as a rhodes should sounds imho ), great thing, loved listening to, and I went further looking at the other videos of the duo "Mehliana"!!

Thanks Alex, another solid and highly interesting hint from you, well done! Please enjoy your weekend as well, Cheers. -Spin-

It's OK Alex. I understand. I didn't think you would feel or appreciate the “pure” funk in that George Duke track. Funk IS about repetition as is all of our human emotions, and our existence is depended upon it.
Have a great upcoming weekend, smile :)
Best Regards.

Yep! The track (Clouds) does have originality. Thanks again. Sorry to hear about your creatively lost. But it will come back. I know the feeling. When I inadvertently deleted a track I've been working on; I could never go back to (recreated with the same energy and feeling) again. Gone forever!!! Had to move on.

You asking about me. I currently upgrading my PC and DAW and adding some Vst's to my studio. My PC is being build. I'm expecting to be shipped from the manufacturer soon.. So I won't be working on any new until perhaps late June.

I sent Spin a hint to a FUNK track by George Duke. If interested here is the link:

Have a great weekend

Hi Alex
“Hugo Kant - Clouds ”. Thoroughly enjoyed this jaunt into the creative music of this artist. Like Spin mentioned, featuring the flute solos/melodies was very refreshing to hear. Actually made the song for me. Vocals were average...the rhythm (down-tempo) worked well...really solid 'in the pocket' mix. The entire track flowed well to make it an pleasurable listen.
Thanks too for the early WE tip.

Best Regards,
-Al-

PS- Are you working on any new material?

... and about "Tilt!", you are right Alex, it has really a similarity to the Queen´s greatest Hit!! That kick drum and the focus on the beat are very similar indeed! wink ;)

As Morgan ($Bill) wrote to me, sometimes one has to think about having only fun: true words...... wink ;) wink ;)

Cheers Alex! big grin :D

Hi Alex!!

Hugo Kant with Clouds: Very interesting triphop (am I right?) tune, both vocals and flute performances really impressed me. A softly downtempo driven song. Wish to mention that the use of flute is not more usual nowadays ( why?), so I find this song really innovative and well produced, also because of the so clever lead part of the flute. I come from a time were the flute made a great part in the arrangemnts ( almost in all prog-rock bands ), so I am happy to find it once again in a modern tune. As for the band, a refreshing young arrangement that I relly enjoyed listening to...... very good early-we-hint Alexander!!

Thanks my friend and enjoy your rest of the week!!! -Spin-

Hi Alex!

Yes of course, I understand that when you dig in the progress of the contest (QEC) you get a special relationship to the artists, I am sure that´s why I can´t understand well what it is about. You followed all the history since the begin.

I wish you a good time watching at the final, and anyway, time spent listening to music is always worth it, no matter what kind of genre or performance! smile :)

Cheers my friend!

Guten Abend Alex!

Here I am my friend, I first watched at the video you pointed to me, Finale of the QEC 2017 solist Aurelién Pascal. i have to admit that it is kinda "heavy" to understand for me... I mean contemporary classic is not my most preferred genre. "Sublimation" made asolutely no impression to me. The Schostakovich Concert Nr.1 almost the same to me ( not a fan of Schostakovich, up to the well known Jazz Waltz Nr.2....). I absolutely have no doubts that the partecipants are 1 Class musicians, sure, only, the pieces that were presented are not my taste.

Sorry my friend, this time I couldn´t report any good impression...

Wishing you a great weekend ( is it a holiday weekend in Belgium too including monday june 5th? ). Cheers, -Spin-
