    Share Some Music "Finds" On YouTube

    I waste hour roaming the music on YouTube, and never seem to fail to stumble across some great stuff. Some of it from recognized artist, and some from left field. I bet some of you do as well. Let's share our discoveries -

    From the left field category are two guitarists with amazing skills who might never be heard outside their homes and friends' digs save for YouTube -

    From the recognized category and one I looked for after Haley Reinhart performed the same song on American Idol -

    I think I have posted this in the past--but I love this video. Four enormously talented guys just having a great time.

    I love what I do as well, but I'm not sure I look as happy doing it!

    I find it amazing the effort and talent some people will put on Youtube to entertain strangers for presumably no monetary profit. Below is an example. How much effort did it take for first the music and then the CGI to illustrate it?

    I've long had a fascination with the under-used Xylophone and especially with its cousin, the rich and mellow tones of the Vibraphone. Red Norvo and George Shearing were favorites of mine growing up. Shearing plays piano, but his quintet used vibes to perfection.

    The little girl at the beginning of this says it all

    I love to see performers who are obviously having as much fun as their audience.

    I last saw Peter Paul and Mary a few years before Mary died (2009). It was sad, Mary's spirit was still the same but she had lost her voice. I felt bad afterward, I would have preferred to remember her as she had been

    I am not sure why, but in the period of the 60's I blocked artists like Joan Baez and Peter Seeger because of their politics, for some unknown reason I did not associate the same platform to P P & M--despite the fact that they were part of the protest movement. Maybe it was because I was too smitten with Mary to admit that fact

    As I went through my own gut wrenching conversion to the peace movement in the 70's I "discovered" an entire group of entertainers that my own bias had prevented me from enjoying---and hearing.

    I also became acquainted with PP&M in the mid sixties and did not listen to them through any political filter...I just liked their music and so did most everyone in my barracks...I knew a lot of their songs were concerned with the peace movement, but it didn't matter as much as it did with the other singers of the time...I still have much of their music that I transferred to reel-to-reel tape 45 years ago......Ben

    Interesting similarity in thought regarding them.

    I have a lot of their music now on CD.

    Many of that group were seemingly "good" people--the kinds of people that I would be proud to call my friends. Pete Seeger BTW just turned 92 about a month ago


    It was only lately that I became aware that Paul Stookey wrote the "Wedding Song" for the occasion of Peter's wedding--at Peter's request. Paul was also raised a Buddhist--I'm not sure when he converted to Christianity.
