Welcome all here rockings people.
  Wed. 6/15/16 3:10pm jan:

Hi Irwin- You know music, right? Maybe you can shed some light- All weekend there was endless promotion of the Tonys and Hamilton. I'm no fan of Broadway, but have found merit from time to time in some of that genre, but Hamilton? I just don't get it. anyone else?
Avatar    Wed. 6/15/16 3:13pm Irwin:

Jan - I know music. About Broadway - nada.
Avatar    Wed. 6/15/16 3:13pm JP from KC:

Hiya Irwin! Totally digging this track!
  Wed. 6/15/16 3:17pm jan:

Irwin- But have you heard Hamilton? It's Rap the music of our time, or so I heard Lin-Manuel Miranda say on TV. And you have played show tunes...
Avatar    Wed. 6/15/16 3:21pm Irwin:

The Hamilton phenomenon has barely penetrated my consciousness. And I still don't know what a Kardashian looks like.
  Wed. 6/15/16 3:24pm Shannon:

Yay, haven't heard this Catchers song in ages! This is inspiring me to dig through my CD crates...
Avatar    Wed. 6/15/16 3:25pm Irwin:

Shannon: the album still sounds great. Band dissolved too quickly.
Avatar    Wed. 6/15/16 3:26pm Irwin:

This track is playing because it features basic rock song structures, a subtle use of vocal harmony, mild rhythmic syncopation, major key tonality, and a vocal-centric aesthetic.

Avatar    Wed. 6/15/16 3:31pm Irwin:

This track is playing because it features an angular melody, strong rhythmic syncopation, a compelling intensity, a sense of anxiety, wildly complex rhythm, chromatic harmony, atonal harmony, dissonant harmony, a Modern style, a Contemporary style, and a broad tempo.

Wow, this Hiromi is really great too.

@coelacanth: didn't know about that Hamilton, I only know what I see on the TV or hear on WFMU
Avatar    Wed. 6/15/16 3:37pm Irwin:

This track is playing because it features an overall compositional virtuosity, a tranquil mood, an acclaimed work, a well-known composer, a Classical-Era style, a small string orchestra, tonal harmony, major key tonality, and a fast and bright tempo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/15/16 3:38pm coelacanth:

Avatar    Wed. 6/15/16 3:40pm Irwin:

This track is playing because it features block piano chords, Brazilian jazz influences, a melodic piano solo, a horn ensemble, big band arrangements, Latin percussion, and unique instrumentation. And it is about taking drugs.

Irene played this Monkees cut last night...its really nice. Thanks.

Seeing the Triplets of Belleville in the theater not knowing what to expect was quite thrilling, I recall.

Triplets: Thanks to Irwin mentioning of the show and playing the music, I saw that great film!
Avatar    Wed. 6/15/16 3:56pm Irwin:

This track is playing because it features New Orleans influences, swing influences, a melodic tenor sax solo, acoustic piano accompaniment, a horn ensemble, big band arrangements, a lazy swing groove, a groove oriented approach, and a major tonality.

extensive vamping,minor key tonality,

This track is playing because it features swing influences, a leisurely tempo, a well-articulated piano solo, acoustic piano accompaniment, a horn section, trumpet playing, light drumming, electric guitar accompaniment, use of call-and-response melodies, a lazy swing groove, interesting part writing, strong melodies, major tonality, two-step style, and elaborate arrangements.

it's very subtle.

That talk sounded like subtitles for when the director of the institute where I work introduces the yearly festival. He once ended his speech by playing random scenes from a Bergman film, then asked if anyone had questions
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/15/16 4:22pm coelacanth:

at the risk of missing a song featuring electric rock instrumentation,subtle use of vocal harmony,extensive vamping,minor key tonality,a vocal-centric aesthetic and electric pianos; i must depart.
Thanks Irwin.
