Fine Music - Orchestra, Big Band, Classical and Such


It seemed to me that a few videos from "Celtic Woman" would be a nice way to kick this off. I hope y'all love this kind of music too and this thread fills in with some great stuff Big Grin

Loved the movie, "Happy Feet"! Heart

Thanks Bluesman, I really like the original Riverdance production. It was a shame Michael Flatley left the show before my dad took me to see it, back in the Spring of 2000 at the Gershwin Theatre on Broadway. But I guess it paid off for Michael Flatley to leave the show because he ended up going all monkey-butt ballistic with all that "Lord of The Dance" stuff, no doubt making millions.

So now that you got me all riled up about wicked tap, and even though these dance videos are a misfit in this thread, I just have to post one more Big Grin

I can't speak for LovinDa, but I don't think this is out of order/sequence or context, and since the "Pianos/keyboards" thread didn't seem to garner much attention, why not here?

That said ... Ahhh, Guaraldi .... so like a finely aged wine. In CYFTTW, you can hear all his stylistic tendencies that later became so well known/recognized in the "Peanuts" TV specials. Love, love, love his style.

Thanks for posting.

^^^ LMAOLSNORTZ - Quit picking on me you big bully!

I hadn't heard Dave Brubeck's "Take Five" in years; as with MAE, it was also just what I needed. The Vince Guaraldi Trio clip is really nice too. I love soft Jazz and Brandy. Police Lady Lovinda says great posting, keep up the good work.

I hadn't heard Brubeck's song in forever, either, didn't even know who did it, but when I saw the post, my mind immediately went to the tune.... muscle memory I suppose... I guess I knew who did it without 'knowing' who did it

How about a little Piano with some Charles Schultz Cool


Found this interesting vid, featuring Gershwin "Rhapsody in Blue" 'recorded' on a 'piano roll' later to be used in addition to an orchestra



Quote:A piano roll is the music storage medium used to operate the player piano, pianola or a reproducing piano. The piano roll was the first medium which could be produced and copied industrially and made it possible to provide the customer with actual music fast and easily. A piano roll is a roll of paper with perforations (holes) punched in it. The position and length of the perforation determines the note played on the piano. The roll moves over a device known as the 'tracker bar', which first had 58 holes, was expanded to 65 and then was upgraded to 88 holes (generally, one for each piano key). When a perforation passes over the hole, the note sounds.

The first paper rolls were used by Welte & Sons in their Orchestrions since 1883. After hundreds of companies of this booming business produced piano rolls different in size and perforation, in 1909 the American producers of piano rolls and mechanical pianos as well agreed to a standard in the Buffalo Convention.
This process was later used for early computer programming/input too...

How far we've come from a Piano roll to an iPod Tongue
