I had to add this. Does it count if I’m listening to music with only my eyes and my heart? Tunes are in my own imagination.
The Eiganharp is probably the coolest instrument ever invented. It’s also so complicated that few can play it. Every sound in this piece comes from the Eiganharp…
I might just be anyone…and as a bonus, it turns out my husband qualifies for the title “anyone” too. So thanks!
My husband and I spent many a night “dancing” under the stars. Was one of our favorite things to do. I will never stop missing him, but just hearing this makes me smile.
In 1955, Roger Williams did the nearly impossible. He recorded the only piano solo that ever became the #1 recording of popular music in modern times with his rendition of “Autumn Leaves.” He continued working and playing until his death in 2011. This recording is his 2008 improvisation on Autumn Leaves with his band, recorded live. The improv takes about the first five minutes, and then becomes the familiar piece we all knew and loved.
Though this is titled “Carol of the Bells,” I think a more accurate name would be “An Ode to Winter Winds.” As you listen, close your eyes and you can almost see the leaves swirling in the corners where they rise up and blow away, borne on the breath of a storm. It’s amazing what an artist can do with just a piano.
don’t know how to post a pi but listening to Belleau Wood by Garth Brooks.
Give a listen and bet you can’t help but get choked up.
Beautiful song and lyric
