    @joss and @POPS Oh, thank you so much for those videos. Axe lady plays mean blues and, whilst I’d never come across PMJ before, I shall now explore in depth. The trio singing All About the Bass are just brilliant. Each with her own individual voice which come together in fantastic harmony, must try and find more by them singing together. Would be better without the video though, they are all what a gentleman must call “quite charming”. It can be difficult to listen to the music in detail while being distracted by their charmingness!

    What I loved about the PMJ stuff was that everyone was just having a great time, enjoying themselves making music.

    happy st davids day

     

    St David is the Patron Saint of Wales
    No not the pub down the road selling those real ales
    March the 1st is a special day
    To all true Welshmen even living miles away

    For on that day we celebrate 100 years of life
    Of David who reigned as Bishop and Archbishop over mortal strife
    His last words were in a sermon I did read
    ” Be joyful keep your faith and creed

    Do the little things you have seen me do and heard about, he said
    And walk the path our fathers trod, take heed now for I’ll soon be dead”
    And in March the 1st AD589, Dewi Sant slipped off his mortal coil they say
    Which henceforth became known as “St David’s Day”

    Thanks for the insight Mike. It makes me realise how little I know, and makes me determined to keep learning, even at my age.

    In an effort to hear more of the charming trio from PMJ, I sought out songs by Hailey Reinhart. She has done a cover version of White Rabbit from Jefferson Airplane. I never thought I’d hear anyone better than Grace Slick do those lyrics, but Reinhart at least equals her. Astonishing.

    I loved Grace Slick and thought life so unfair that she didn’t know I existed. When I was about 18 years old, she sang a song called “Somebody to love”, and I was hooked. Happy memories of a time when I fell in love many times.

    OMG! PMJ? OTT! (changing name to The Acronym Kid?) Seriously, though, you’ve got me hooked on PMJ creations. Always listenable. Fun, intriguing music. And occasionally some super surprises: A three-part harmony version of Tell Me What You Want is a knockout – was more than halfway through before I realised it was a cover of Spice Girls hit. And a version of the Kinks You Really Got Me is just stunning – so different to original and hooks you in straight away.

    Yup. An old gag but one that needs to be repeated before it gets lost. 🙂

    And a million thanks for the vid of Ms Emerald. Most enjoyable – and just about the biggest jazz band I’ve ever seen!

    Have a couple of vid’s I’d like to post (of Gaby Moreno). Now going away to work out how to do it. BBS

    Cheers, Joss. Saved me poking about for an hour and getting it wrong. Hopefully, catering permitting, will put something up this afternoon(-ish)

    Right then, let’s see if this works. This is an “official” vid of Gaby Moreno singing Ave que Emigra. She does some great live performances (might try one later) but the sound quality is crap. Put this schmaltzy one in here just to let the good audio show the range and stunning nature of her voice. Harmonies at the end are lovely…

    Yippee! Worked! Here’s a live one, with orchestra, of her song Illusion. She writes most of her own stuff, wins awards for it too. Just love the words to this, hope the audio quality ain’t too bad…
