Sons of Apollo is a prog metal super group consisting of Mike Portnoy and Derek Sherinian of ex Dream Theater fame, famous bassist Billy Sheehan, and guitar player Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal along with singer Jeff Scott Soto. I haven't heard about the latter two.

Their second album MMXX was release i January, and here's the first track:

Carn I saw them in San Diego that year, and in LA the previous year, where I was first taken by them. Quite an introduction to a band! Few other performances have lived up to them for me.

I quite like the Joker soundtrack, particularly the final piece. It's fantastic.

This weekend jazz keyboard player Lyle Mays passed away after a long battle with a recurring illness. He is best known as part of the Pat Metheny Group across more than 30 years before retiring about 15 years ago. Here is a great live clip of a classic song “It’s for you”

Ever wondered what the first drum'n'base track was? Here's s top contender from 1969, time-jump to 1:26 if you're impatient:

One of my parent's old 7" records, which I probably played more than they ever did. 1961 vintage but with drumming that could have come out yesterday:

Yes indeed! The ‘Amen Break’ is one of most sampled things ever, and was used widely in drum & bass music, in a similar way to how James Brown’s ‘Funky Drummer’ Drum break defined early hip hop music.

Thanks - haven’t heard that in ages, and forgot how ahead of its time it is! My cynical take is it couldn’t have come out yesterday … because everything would have been gated and quantized and that awesome feel and rhythmic flow would have been lost.

And since I mentioned it … here is the full Funky Drummer …

Yesterday I went to see and hear the Russian State Symphony Orchestra with violinist Nemanja Radulovic playing Tchaikovsky - Violin Concerto.
My hubby and I rarely like violin concertos, the reason we went was because after the break the orchestra would perform the Fire Bird Suite from Stravinsky (which was great).

But my, what a big surprise that guy Radulovic was. Phe-no-me-nal. Never heard a performance on violin that good, I was captivated from beginning till the last note. And I was not the only one.

Here is a short piece of him playing the same work. He start playing at 0:53.

But yeah, it is very short, so it probably won’t move you like it did me yesterday.

Here’s him playing something else which may be more fitting for a short time. The action start at 1:25.

Such an attractive man as well. I think if I had been in the orchestra I would have melted. My, he is hot. (Yesterday I was sitting too far from the stage to really notice that.)

Ozzy, the Tribute album. Because Rhodes may have been the greatest guitar player of all time, and Osborne was super lucky that he had the use of his talents, if only for a brief time.

Second video from Loveblind. Honestly, the components are really good but somehow the sum of the parts only comes together in a couple spots for me.

Youtube jumped over to Snow in Mexico and I caught an awesome track of theirs I hadn't heard before. Gotta share.

I have copies now of all the Snow in Mexico and love them. I really like the latest Loveblind single, hanging out for late next month!
