Listening Lyrics Jan 9th, 2015 with ANDREW WALTON

andrew walton, kdrt, listening lyrics, pastoor, pieter pastoor(a quick disclaimer - a few technical hicups but stick with it - Andrews talent really shines) In praise of the BASS - it’s what anchors and creates the beat. Andrew Walton is our guest this week. He is a superb bass player with abilities well beyond his age. Listening Lyrics is thrilled to start the 2015 season with this terrific talent.

Andrew Walton grew up in Woodland CA. and started playing guitar at 11 and bass at 12. Andrew started performing with the Douglass Middle School's concert band but it was at Pioneer High School, that he started playing jazz in Pioneer's Jazz Gold Band and Jazz Combo.His music career really took off once he started playing jazz in small combos around Davis and Woodland even then, he was always looking for opportunities to play. Jazz got him to start writing and really exploring what he could do with music. This, in turn, peaked his interest in other genres to see how the art form can be interpreted. Andrew is now attending Berklee College of Music as he continues his journey, and he doesn’t plan to stop any time soon.

Listening Lyrics Oct 24th, 2014 with Lisa Cantrell

Listening lyrics, Lisa Cantrell, kdrt, pieter pastoor,The first time I heard her perform--actually the first few moments I heard her--I knew I wanted her on the show. That was a few months ago, now we all get to hear her perform live in the studio and get to know Lisa. Lisa was born and raised in South Carolina and lived a short time in Indiana.  She was classically trained on the piano and started writing songs at age 11.  When she is not playing music, she can be found conducting experiments on infants in the UD Davis Center for Mind and Brain or working on her psychology-story-telling podcast, An InExact Science. 

Check out the short video clip of Lisa performing in the studio https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPi7tqRRSWA&feature=youtu.be

Robert Kennedy interview

Since this was a teaching show where I was the student - may the student share?

Screaming Jay Hawkins: His most popular song was "I put a Spell on you". But, my personal favorite and much less known was: "You Put a Spell on Me." Definitely a blast from the past.

Best recent drummers: please add Levon Helm from The Band to the list, he dramatically changed the role of the drummer in a band.

Luciano Pavarotti: He passed in 2007. However he recorded a show for PBS along with Jose Carreras and Placido Domingo titled; The Three Tenors (and as luck would have it I caught it on our local PBS statation - again - just a week ago). Magnificent!

 

Kennedy show

Great comments Dirk - Thank you. Robert is a guy that has great musical taste - all this from a very young man. 

cheers

The Vinyl show

Definitely one fine show Pieter & Jeanne. It was hearing the eclectic mix of music which brought on a rush of memories. Notably, Phillip Glass’ “Open the Kingdom” made me think on my personal favorite Glass piece, the score to the film; Powaqqatsi. As an aside, having a grandchild with Aspergers I remembered listening to an interview with Music Critic, Tim Page who revealed that after being diagnosed as having Aspergers realized that it was Glass’ minimalist focus on each individual note/sound which had him absolutely love Glass’ works; listening by the hour and eventually seeking a career in music. At the time I heard that interview it proved to be just the right positive “punch” I needed while reflecting the future opportunities for my own grandchild.  The wonder of music is indeed powerful.

thanks

Thanks - we had fun putting it together.

Once I get all of your albums cleaned up - I'm doing a show on your collection. I think I'll call it Vinyl - one mans trash reaps another mans treasure. :)

RICHIE LAWRENCE show

More dobra, more acordian, more piano, more 'silky' voiced lyrics, more Richie Lawrence. Great show!

Spangler show

If I lived in the Davis area I'd chase these two around to every one of their gigs. What a find!

Dallas themed show

Surely this was a relaxing hour complete with great banter and music. All that was missing was for all of us sitting around with some after dinner Port and maybe a fire in the fireplace as the conversation carried on.

You and Jeanne were so right about the old 78s and their scratch bringing something special to the listening experience. The occasional totally 'dead' moments found on CDs are almost jarring.

Justin Cox show

Loved Alpert's opening & Justin's closing bumps.

Had I realized just how wonderfully mellow this show was I would have listened in the evening with a cup of caffeine free Peppermint tea and my feet up on the table. As it was, listening in the morning, it was still one I was gald I did not miss.

Chris Clark

Just discovered that I am never too old to learn -- this week Chris Clark opened up a whole new pathway leading to a greater appreciation of and the enchantment of jazz.

Thanks for having Chris Clark on the show Pieter.

listener in Israel

 

Pieter!!! I was listening to few of your shows today.
First- this is high quality stuff!!!! I was blown away!!! great music, great interviews, great ideas for the show. I'm a fan!!!!
Secondly- You two have great communication there. 
Third- for me, it is just brilliant to be able to listen to you two. Your voice sounds so familiar. It feels like sitting with you in the same room. You sound so calm and I just LOVE it.
