Record heat and heated rhetoric. Our Economy held hostage. The slimy arms of a News Corporation reaching everywhere. Deadly Right Wing terrorism. It’s been an intense week.

Sometimes, for your own mental health, you just need to take a break. So, this weekend’s theme is about getting away from it all, whether it’s relaxing on a beach or musically traveling to an exotic place or another time.

St. Tropez – Pink Floyd

Going Mobile – The Who

Bridge of Sighs – Robin Trower

China Grove – The Doobie Brothers

Graceland – Paul Simon

Solsbury Hill – Peter Gabriel

Wow!

I love this! This is going straight to my iPod. Too bad it just fades away at the end of the video.

I can tell that he’s playing on one of the maqamat, but I can only identify one of them by ear (the Hijaz,) and this is certainly not that. Very beautiful improvisation.

I’m impressed you know that! I found it looking for examples of maqamat. I think he’s going off the traditional scale a little in this. Also, he’s Syrian, if that’s relevant at all–maybe not.

I am just seeing your comment. Wish I could help you out. But I’m sure that as smart, kind hearted and probably very attractive, you’ll find those arms.
