Hi Phyllis,

 

Thanks for flagging! We're currently looking into why links to videos on this thread are broken.

Valeria, much gratitude to you and the team for taking the time to fixing this. Cat Very Happy

I'm celebrating by posting a much-covered song by the originator, a short time before he passed away. It's a bit leisurely, but sometimes it's good to be laid back. FYI, the song is based on a Native American peyote chant. Also, the video has a typo, the title is Witchi Tai To, not Witchi To Tai. Cat Wink

Not sure if I've ever posted this.  There is a radio station in New Orleans - WWOZ - which features jazz 24 hours a day.  They have streaming so it should be readily available to all.  It's a non-profit which consistently struggles so donations are greatly appreciated.  (For those who watched the HBO series Treme over the years, WWOZ is featured many times in the story.)  (And if this should interest you in watching the series, I was a background actor in almost every episode - although rarely seen!)

I occurred to me that I hadn't featured any Jazz cover versions of pop songs. Jazz musicians do use pop material on occasion. So here's an artist who specialized at this. She covered tunes like Here Comes the Sun, Isn't It a Pity, and even Everyone's Gone to the Moon, but I especially like this poignant rendition of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band original. FYI, Ms. Simone is an accomplished pianist, having studied piano at Juilliard.

Not sure I've done unusual time signatures in this thread, so here's one in 11/8 time, with some fusion heavyweights. Of the 4 musicians on the track, the only one I never saw in person is the bassist Dave Holland, but maybe I'll catch him one of these days.

Haven't been diligent maintaining my thread, but it's just 3 days from the 100th anniversary of the birth of the immortal Charlie Parker, I had to post something. I could easily choose several dozen examples of his opus, but here's one of his celebrated compositions, and as a bonus, a cool vocalise version by singer/pianist Bob Dorough.

Thanks, John! Just listening to the first eight bars makes me feel happier.
