Lullaby (110 sec)

you just keep on using me until you use me up

No chance you won’t LOVE this.

ZERO chance.

Ay Ay Ay Ay
I want to spread the news that if it feels this good getting used
Oh you just keep on using me until you use me up
Until you use me up


Notes:

Adios


Hang in there…it builds a head of steam with the cello at go and starts to cook at the 3:00 minute mark…What incredible talent!

Benjamin Sainte-Clementine, 27, in a poet, singer, pianist, composer and musician. He performs Adios live at the Burberry Menswear January 2016 show.

The decision is mine
The decision is mine
So let the lesson be mine
Let the lesson be mine
The decision was hard
The decision was hard
Cause the vision is mine
The vision is mine

Play it again Leron (67 sec)

Monday Morning Mantra

pablo-casals

For the past eighty years I have started each day in the same manner,” wrote the cellist Pablo Casals in his memoir, Joys and Sorrows. “I go to the piano, and I play two preludes and fugues of Bach. It fills me with awareness of the wonder of life, with a feeling of the incredible marvel of being a human being.

~ Glen Kurtz, Practicing: A Musician’s Return to Music


Pablo Casals (1876 – 1973), was a Spanish Catalan cellist and conductor. He is generally regarded as the pre-eminent cellist of the first half of the 20th century, and one of the greatest cellists of all time.

Gem Club


Gem Club is an American chamber pop band formed in Somerville, Massachusetts in 2010 by singer-songwriter Christopher Barnes.

Using little more than piano, cello, and Christopher Barnes’ heartbreaking, glacial vocals, the Boston duo with Barnes on the piano and Kirsten Drymala on cello creates music that wafts by like a cloud.
