Tigran Hamasyan Trio – Mockroot Concert

If you’re into Jazz/Nu Jazz, you have to listen to/watch this concert by the Tigran Hamasyan Trio. Tigran plays some of his material from his new album Mockroot.

It gets pretty intense sometimes and I just love the bass line and the sound that the bass puts out, especially turned up loud with some really nice over-ear headphones.

You can hear what I mean really clearly in Drip at 58:58.

Tigran is an awesome musician and he always has top class musicians accompanying him.

His trio at one stage included the drummer Mark Giuliana, who has also played with Avishai Cohen and Dhafer Youssef.

You can also hear Tigran’s touch on the piano with Dhafer Youssef on his Abu Nawas Rhapsody album.

There’s another guy you want to get to know, by the way – check out this concert by Dhafer in Turkey from 2013.

The section from 10:30 is freakin’ awesome!

I get to chill to these tunes while I do my work – so cool!

I love track 5 – “The Arrow”

Have a listen below, he hits some pretty high notes which make the hair on the back of my neck stand on end. Very cool!

Saddler and Co | Fine Saddles and Leather Goods

A plug for a very talented saddler and leather worker from country New South Wales, Australia.

Bede Aldridge of Saddler & Co. crafts saddles and leather goods from the finest quality leathers at his workshop in Dubbo , NSW, Australia.

He has launched his online store with a stylish range of quality saddles and leather goods available for sale, but he also makes saddles and leather goods to your own specification.

The online store sells leather belts, bags, iPad & iPhone cases, whips, knife pouches, covers for (paper) notebooks, bridles, reins, tack and saddles, among other things.

I’ve seen and caressed some of his beautiful leather tote bags with my own eyes and hands and they are a delight to the senses as well as being practical and solid in construction.

Check out his online store and get in touch with him if you need him to make some specialised leather goods you just can’t find anywhere else!

Tigran Hamasyan – The Court Jester

One commenter to this video says it just as succinctly as the most erudite music critic ever could – “Holy Smokes!”

Just listen.

Stephen Fry on P.G. Wodehouse

I knew Wodehouse was a good writer, but I didn’t know he was so highly regarded!

When I read Wodehouse, I am filled with delight and when I’m not laughing out loud, my internal monologue is humming with silent mirth at every page.

His use of language is indeed sublime.

Hiromi Uehara

Just discovered Hiromi Uehara, a truly gifted pianist from Japan.

She’s playing here with bassist Anthony Jackson (Paul Simon, The O’Jays, Steely Dan, Chick Corea) and drummer Simon Phillips (Toto, The Who, Judas Priest, David Gilmour, Jack Bruce).

Like some of the comments say, she “completely took me off world” with this performance.

Wow! I gotta find out more about this girl and her music!
