Fools Day Friday has me feeling eclectic and a bit like fooling around with today’s theme.  So many styles and variations to listen to and you just listens to only one?

What is your favorite set of styles? Jazz, Rock, Blues, Chamber, Roots….. Your pick.

Rolling Stones2120 South Michigan Avenue

Now this is completely foolish.
Ricky Nelson Sings Fools Rush In


Zagreb Chamber Music Festival: Smetana Piano Trio – 1st mov.


Pick a set and have a happy Friendly-Foolish-Friday.

    I’ll put this up here.

    A couple of the most famous drum salutes in pipe drumming

    Alex Duthart -- the legend (the myth goes that on Johnny Carson, Buddy Rich brought up his name out of nowhere as a drummer better than him -- who could do things on one drum he couldn’t with his whole kit)

    Shotts and Dykehead Caledonian Pipe Band (with Jim Kilpatrick) -- it gets really good a few minutes in.

    Interestingly enough, Truth, the rudiments for pipe drumming come from Basel drumming -- including the famous “Swiss windmills”.

    While these guys are renegades from the Fasnacht tradition, they come from it and are quite the item -- their sticks are on fire… no, literally!

    I’ll get to tabla legends some other time. 😉

    Here’s one.

    Buddy Rich and Allah Rakha -- Rangeela

    Good evening, and after spending all day at a track meet it’s nice to relax. World Party, “Ship of Fools’

    And while this isn’t music, it’s more than fitting for Fool’s Day.
    If ya need to, hum something while you watch it.

    I’m a fool to cry~ Stones

    So folks, this is what I play. And this is what we aspire to. But this guy is unreal. Starts warming up @ 1:00 and the juggling starts @ 2:30ish.

    Teen phenom Elizabeth Shaw

      That guy is a total drum virtuoso. The one-handed drumming was something you would hardly believe until you actually saw it! Amazing!

      Loved the reaction shots of the audience.

    • Truth says:

      Here’s some more drumming for you, Khirad:

      These drums are played at the “Basler Fasnacht”, the 3-day carnival of my home town. There are lots of performances before and after the Fasnacht, and here is one of them:

      and some more:

      And there is some totally different drumming, The Japanese “Kodo”:

      And in another change of culture, yet we’re still talking percussion: Zakir Hussain and Erik Harland:

      ***Edit: Here’s yet another Jim Kilpatrik. That guy is just unbelievable!

    • Truth says:

      Wow, Khirad -- that IS unreal! Excellent! When he shows the movements in slow motion I became aware as to how difficult this really is. Amazing!

    KT showing clips from “The Last Waltz” makes me think of what I consider to be the best rockumenary ever made, “The Kids Are All Right”. Here’s the Who, being FOOLish!

    My first date ever, was when I was 15 years old, and my parents allowed me to go out on that date as there were 2 other couples, and we went to a Neil Diamond concert, as all of us were fans, and the comedian that opened for him was Albert Brooks, and a good time was had by all.
    Until we went out for pizza after, and my date choked on a mint, and spewed in the parking lot, and there was no kiss goodnight, which would have been my first kiss!
    Years later, we actually worked together, and that was awesomely cool, for when he came over to my drafting board and talked to me.
    We became friends then.

    Who doesn’t love Neil Diamond?
    (I have all his albums until Jonathan Seagull, as he lost me then)

    My favorite Neil Diamond of all time --

    Dr. John--Such a Night;
