Jools Holland's annual Hootenanny is just over. With Tom Jones, Rhiannon Giddens, Hozier, James Bay, Jess Glynne and KT Tunstall, among others, it was a thoroughly satisfying lineup.

SUN RA

One of Alabama's finest, from Saturn by way of Birmingham and on through the cosmos. I had the privilege of seeing Sun Ra and his Arkestra at the Atlanta Jazz Festival in 1989. I'd never heard or seen - and I never will hear or see - anything like it. The word "transcendent" is tossed around too loosely. But Sun Ra was truly transcendent. I don't pretend to fully understand his music, which is what makes it so incredibly intoxicating. Listening to Sun Ra is like looking at the stars. You feel the wonder and you feel a certain peace, but you are also frightened by the vastness of it all.

I'm going to my second of four operas this season next week at The Lyric.  The opera is called Bell Canto.  It's a modern opera by composer Jimmy López, with the libretto based off the 2001 novel by Ann Patchett.  I've never heard of López before, but I'm excited to see the opera. 

More info here if you're interested:

Earlier this year I saw the legendary Renée Fleming sing in The Merry Widow by Lehár.   That was the second time I saw a show with Renée Fleming.  Anyone else seeing any shows this season? 


Later this month I'm going to see The State Ballet Theatre of Russia perform Prokofiev's famous Romeo and Juliette at the Harris Theater.

But Sun Ra left an impression difficult to forget.

The Met's production of LuLu. Simulcast.

In short for all its hype, I found it a bit underwhelming. I've had the fortune of seeing it in three productions previously. Too tired to say much else.

I love Fleming. She does rock as well as she does classical too, which is more than most crossover artists can boast of.

Going to a live show is out of the question, but there are plenty showing on TV, thank goodness. I caught the Met's recent Donna del Lago with Joyce DiDonato the other night, and lovely it was too, despite some jarring costume choices.

We had Wozzeck this season.  I  missed it though.  I don't know if I've heard anything from  Lulu.  At least you go to the best opera house in the New World.  I've never been to the Met, even though I did a short stint in NYC.  I own a few DVDs of Met productions though.

I love the Lyric though, even though it isn't in the same league as the Met.  Detroit is good for what it is, and even the Toledo Valentine is decent for a city like Toledo.  I may get to go to a show in San Fran next year, so that'll be exciting.

I never heard her rock, thats surprising.  Next month Dmitri Hvorostovsky is doing a recital, that'll be my first time seeing him live if I decide to go.  I'm glad it's easy to catch Met shows on TV now.  Don't you live in England?  I have a few DVD'set from the Royal Opera House, it's an impressive looking theatre.

Definitely recommended.

Next month Dmitri Hvorostovsky is doing a recital, that'll be my first time seeing him live if I decide to go.

It would be worth it, if anything for the possibility of him singing Orthodox hymns as well. That's a sizeable side of his repertoire.

Thanks to BBC Three. :) Still, Covent Garden doesn't get nearly as much screen time as the Albert Hall, which is plastered all over the place as long as there is something Proms-related going on. ;D

I recommend boycotting this channel for their FAIL videos.  There are failures in almost all live performances and their ability to overcome the incident is commendable.

These collegium regale guys/dolls are really jerks. I think that they lack introspection or whatever the correct term is. Performing is not an easy life!!!

Sense. This makes none.

Exploring my new favourite YouTube channel, Collegium Regale.

I recommend boycotting this channel for their FAIL videos.  There are failures in almost all live performances and their ability to overcome the incident is commendable. These collegium regale guys/dolls are really jerks. I think that they lack introspection or whatever the correct term is. Performing is not an easy life!!!

Sense. This makes none.

Two songs--I'm posting from my cell phone, or I would post links to them here.

Space Oddity (Ground Control to Major Tom)

Under Pressure (with Freddie Mercury and Queen)

I got to listen to Blackstar eventually. I'll need some time and a few more turns listening before I can process it all. It's very low-key and intimate, not at all performance material.

Run the Jewels - All My Life

Mike's flow is incredible. Content wise he reminds me of Ice Cube. I was blown away by how articulate he was when interviewing Bernie Sanders.

Listening to a Spanish lesson. Now I know how to say "Touchdown Alabama!" in Espanol. :-)

Plainchant Parisien:  Mass for Christmas Day by Marcel Peres and the Ensemble Organum.

It is a reconstructed Mass for CHristmas Day using settings from the 17th and 18th centuries when French composers started to reconstruct the Old Gallican Chant which had been suppressed by Charlemagne but retained in some vestiges of French cathedral singing.  Very interesting recording with the antiphonal use of choir/chanters and the organ.

I think they would be forming rival bands; I don't see them working together.

I could see a Lemmy/ Bowie collaboration, sounding like early Hawkwind but with more operatic vocals.
