Are these three songs best
a) at night;
b) during the day;
c) as night falls
d) depends​ on my mood?

Are these three songs best
a) at night;
b) during the day;
c) as night falls
d) depends​ on my mood?

Full disclosure, I love these​ three as songs of civil dusk. I have been blessed enough to listen and watch all three bands perform the songs that way, as can be seen in the​ links​ below.

Are the songs better
a) in their live versions;
b) in their studio versions;
c) it depends on my mood.

Full personal disclosure​ again: to me, I usually like these songs better at night, though my mood upon listening usually takes over. Nothing to brag of, I know! How about you?

I compose morning Episcopal music. The musicians on this page? THANK YOU 👉🏽❤️❤️❤️!!! It is an interesting thing to take a Martin Luther or Ralph Vaughn Williams or Martin Luther hymn and change some of the 1600s harmonies into 2018 harmonies. Hint: fewer diminished​ seconds, more 9ths in place of same. In some keys, as C, the major 3rd is a harsh interval as the E, to allow for equal temperament, stretches toward the perfect 4th, the dreaded F.

Kanye West: Contemporary Socrates, Plato or Reagan with the Benefit of History?

When I heard this track on the day it was released, I thought to myself: there is much more to this man than just being a [colored man] from Chicago with a nice flow.

When I was a child on Chicago many restaurants were open at lunch and had bands like you hear about he Beatles in Hamburg now.   That, but simple lunch.  I remember strolling around Chicago at 4-6 years old, with all the bad memories cut out (our memories are so pink sometimes – well, mine are), and the songs in my time, in my parents’ library was essentially – Bach, Beethoven,

 

 

Beatles, Bacharach, Debussy, Ravel – as my dad was an eye surgeon [in training] at Northwestern University and the aforementioned composers set me on a path of [Pat Metheny / Lyle Mays] addiction and the conviction that with no way to explain this to myself – and this is true not only for a high percentage of not only musicians and non-musicians,  that there were certain still un-copyrightable [grove patterns]. That said, if any of us make it to heaven you know Bo Diddley is going to be there. Can you image if could have copyrighted the foundation of 1/2 of pop music?

Bo DiddleyIn that light, I think Kanye can pick up the Bo Diddly torch and with reason and mercy and ease over whining and having reason bypassed straight to slogans where Socrates would even say: I thought this would have stopped by now, by good for Mr. West.

“James”, “The First Circle”, Pat Metheny Group Matherton Tempo Diagrams

James and The First Circle tempo illustrations by Rudy and Tucker.

The song The First Circle by the Pat Metheny Group,  in particular this live version from their album called One From the Road has Been recognized by many people in the music industry as music simply too original to be pigeonholed. .  As a gues on jazz albums, Pat with any group was able to sell at the level of  pop musicians of their time.  The difference between that Metheny group and the pop musicians was that  The PMG’s  better songs develop over 7-10 minutes – pieces where attention that many escape in to, many have not heard yet.

“Au Lait” | Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays | unclassified harmonic tempo map

Just a moment of perfection. Around the part of the song that Pat comes in after the major break. I had my walkman on, which was not a usual thing at that time. Yeah, passing the White House, listening to this at about 7 PM, finishing a post work beer.

Au-Lait Pat-Metheny-Lyle-Mays

In 1984 I had a college internship in Washington, D.C.

After work, the bus used to pass in front of the East Lawn of the White House, and there was one night on hearing this song for the first time and looking out the window I had a DC “peak experience.” Just a moment of perfection. Around the part of the song that Pat comes in after the major break. I had my walkman on, which was not a usual thing at that time. Yeah, passing the White House, listening to this at about 7 PM, finishing a post work beer.

This song for whatever reason – I think it’s Nana’s Brazilian percussion – reminds me of the basic Chicago sound I grew up in during the 1960s. It was not music from rock music. Rather, it was Debussy, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart when my Dad studied then Beatles and Burt Bacharach when my dad went back to the hospital in Chicago to learn to be a surgeon.
