    I've heard that a few times when people talk about main stream, computer music, autotune and how the music business is turning to fast cash directions...

    Let me tell you, I know a lot of really good musicians and as long as we keep the pursue of being the best we can at what we do, we will win the industry battle ;)

    Here's an exemple of production/event I found recently :



    What about you ? what impressed you lately ?

    What impressed me was watching the audience in this video all wearing headphones...

    Thats' new to me...having the audience tapped into a headphone mix sans PA...you would therefore be listening to a true mix irrespective of your seating position in the room with everyone hearing the exact same perspective and soundstage.

    Thanks for sharing this Marco, some talent on display there, a groovy song with a terrific arrangement and an awesome sound...reminded me of a Zappa composition.

    It bought a big :D to my face. Outstanding.

    When I used to do the club scene, I never stopped thinking how interesting it would be if everyone would have headphones. It was more based around how room acoustics have always driven me nuts.

    The first video starting @ 6 min mark reminds be of Brand X album, Unorthodox Behavior. Older 70's fusion at its best. Not to derail but to simply make a correlation between musical styles and the drumming. I grew up on all this. Its how I jam when I'm actually not doing the pop scene. Lets hope we are seeing a new age of musicianship returning.

    Thanks for posting these Marco, I thoroughly enjoyed them all. The time signatures are ridiculous. I watched a YouTube video of them at the Jazz Festival in Java (1 hour and 15 min. or so) shot a couple years ago. They've been at this 12 years now, some of us (me for sure) are just now hearing about them. Thanks again!

    Here's my thoughts, for what they are worth. I think it's easy to get jaded if you only observe "mainstream" music. There have always been, and always will be ( I hope) lots of this type of music being made, live, real musicians, just doing what they do, playing really well, with all their hearts. It's what I have missed for myself with not getting to play much with others in recent years, the gelling on something, each putting their own bit in to make that whole sound be what it can be. Be something different fresh, free and straight up.

    anyone else notice the old Fender Silver face amp with the 421 on it? I remember those amps. They had that Instant tone. You had to go a long way and really work at screwing up the tone of those beauties.

    My family originates from the highlands, Grantown-On-Spey, named after the clan in Strathspey. Its North-east of Aviemore.

    Theres' even an ancestral Castle still there, Castle Grant. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castle_Grant

    The Grants' were a one of the largest clans in the highlands, we were forever at war with their bitter enemy, The MacDonalds'...
    - It must be in my blood, every time I get within 100 feet of a MacDonalds' restaurant, my blood pressure rises...and I start yelling " Craig Elachie !"

    my Father used to say my Family was descended from the MacDonald clan ..... the story was when they were deposed in the 1100's they hid and lived in the forest so they became "Foresters" ... and that morphed into Foster.
