Monday Music Quote: The Beatles (I'll Follow The Sun)



 “But tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun” ~ The Beatles





 "I'll Follow the Sun" is a song by The Beatles. It is a melancholy ballad written and sung by Paul McCartney. [1] and credited to Lennon/McCartney. It was released in 1964 on the Beatles for SaleBeatles '65 in the United States, but was written long before that year: a version recorded in 1960 can be found in the bootleg record You Might As Well Call Us The Quarrymen. The song is somewhat of a cult favourite; it was released as a mono extended 45 in 1964 on Parlophone/EMI (and in 1995 as a B-side). (Wikipedia)

Musicians Breakthrough: Product Launch

 Hi,

I just got word about the biggest, most
anticipated event of 2011 for gospel musicians...
and after visiting the page, I'm pretty excited
about what I've seen so far.


Product Launch
 

It's called Musician Breakthrough and my friends
over at HearAndPlay are the ones behind it.

To my knowledge, it's the first of its kind for
the gospel musician community.

They are featuring 7 world-class, professional
"West Coast" musicians in a pretty unique format.

Each musician is covering what they call the
"5 Dimensions of the Church Service."

-Praise
-Worship
-Shouting
-Transitional
-Traditional

If you do the math, that's 35 segments... and I'm
told over 16 hours in total.

If you rush over to the page, you'll find video clips
of each musician playing one of these styles. There
are examples from all 5 categories. If nothing else,
watch them and be prepared to be blown away.

Transitional Talk Music


I'll keep you updated if I find out any more information.
(Because of my relationship with the founder, I do tend
to get updates before the general public so I'll let you
in... hush).

Meanwhile, head over to the page.

Talk soon,

“Tell the New York cats to look out. Here comes Tatum! I mean every living tub with the exception of Fats Waller and Willie the Lion [1930]”

Art Tatum style improvisation Over the Rainbow

 


Wikipedia says:


Arthur "Art" Tatum, Jr. (October 13, 1909 – November 5, 1956) was an American jazz pianist and virtuoso. He was nearly blind.
Tatum is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest jazz pianists of all time. Critic Scott Yanow wrote, "Tatum's quick reflexes and boundless imagination kept his improvisations filled with fresh (and sometimes futuristic) ideas that put him way ahead of his contemporaries ... Art Tatum's recordings still have the ability to scare modern pianists."

Monday Music Quote: Stan Getz



 “The saxophone is actually a translation of the human voice, in my conception. All you can do is play melody. No matter how complicated it gets, it’s still a melody.”
         -- Stan Getz









Stanley Getz, better known as Stan Getz (February 2, 1927 - June 6, 1991) was a jazz musician. He is considered one of the greatest tenor saxophone players of all time, well known for his instantly recognizable warm tone as displayed in his version of the song 'The Girl from Ipanema'.

 Girl From Ipanema - chords


Fm7 
Tall and tan and young and lovely 
     G7 
The girl from Ipanema goes walking, 
    Gm7                   F#7                   Fm7    F#7 
And when she passes, each one she passes goes, "Ahhh." 
 
 
 Fm7 
When she walks, she's like a samba 
      G7 
That swings so cool and sways so gentle, 
      Gm7                  F#7                    Fm7 
That when she passes, each one she passes goes, "Ahhh." 
 
Bridge: 
F#7M      F#7             C9 
Oh, but I watch her so sadly; 
F#m7                   D9 
How can I tell her I love her? 
 Gm                         Gm7 
Yes, I would give my heart gladly, 
         Am7                      Dm7(b5)   
But each day when she walks to the sea, 
     Gm7                         F# 
She looks straight ahead, not at me. 
 
 
Fm7 
Tall and tan and young and lovely 
    G7 
The girl from Ipanema goes walking, 
    Gm7                 F#7 
And when she passes,  I smile, 
               Fm7   F#7                Fm7    F#7 
But she doesn't see,     no she doesn't see, 
               Fm7 
No she doesn't see.
