Topic: Way OT jazz heard once..... (11 msgs / 237 lines)
1) From: peterz
Glad to know some of you love jazz, so you may be able to help me find 
this song if it exists.
We were watching a benefit show for the survivors of hurricane Katrina, 
shortly after the hurricane, and suddenly this black musician stepped up 
to the microphone and started playing a very mind wrenching solo, with 
lots of wailing notes.
Finally we figured out that it was probably "Just a closer walk with thee".
Such a powerful rendition I have never heard before or since.
If anyone else saw it perhaps they can remember, and maybe even help me 
find a recording if there even is one.
Thanks in advance,
PeterZ

Just a longshot, if it was that telethon a couple of days after  
Katrina hit, it was aired on both NBC and VH-1 (extraordinary, since  
they're owned by rival companies).  You might try both websites to  
find out if they have DVDs or videos available for the continuing  
benefit of Katrina survivors.

Peter -
I can't help you here, but I'm a big jazz - if you do locate the version,
please share it with us. I'm always looking for more to add to my list of
favorites.

Have you experienced *Heavy Organ at Carnegie Hall* by Virgil Fox? I'm all
Jazz and Big Band, esp. Dizzy Gillespie, Mantovani, and enjoy Welk! Fox will
take your breath away on the Carnegi Instrument if your speakers can
reproduce the sound pressure waves.
Coffee and Jazz represent two art forms. Would an artist fully appreciate
both of them simultaneously?

Never heard the side you mention, but it sounds interesting - I'll have to
look it up on Napster. As for classical organ I'm a Biggs fan, most recently
converted to Walcha. And, yes, Bach goes very well with coffee - e.g. "The
Coffee Cantata," seehttp://www.spillingcoffee.com/2006/04/07/js-bachs-coffee-cantata-the-original-coffee-house-music/ for an interesting perspective.

Ray,
Are you asking if a musician can play and be on drugs (coffee being 
on the low end of the speed spectrum, to quote George Carlin) at the 
same time? It may be rare, but I think a couple of them have managed 
to accomplish that feat.. (i!)

Poe started writing his Last Will and Testament in 1842. He got as far as
"Being of sound mind..." and said, "Ah, the Hell with it. My sundial is
losing time- I'll just write about a fantastic clock!"
He penned the "Coffee roasting with a sundial timer" short story. Publishers
panned it. It turned out the oscillations of the sundial are useful if you
can keep count. Poe's solution to aberrations caused by the wind was to dig
a hole in the ground and suspend...

Occasionally I'll read a post like this and I believe we've been down
similar paths... however while grandma was enjoying "Bubbles in the Wine" I
was having an experience with "Voodoo Chile".

Peter, I don't know what happened to the post I just typed-it's gone (don't
know to where). Anyway, I will re-type my reply. I have a cd called, "Higher
Ground, Hurricane Relief Benefit Concert", Live from Frederick P. Rose Hall,
Home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, September 17, 2005. Song #12 on this cd is
"Just a Closer Walk with Thee", a trumpet solo by Irvin Mayfield. This could
be the one you're looking for.

Check outhttp://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyIdH37922In hour three, there's a trumpet/piano rendition of "Just a Closer Walk with 
Thee."  Not sure it qualifies as mind wrenching but it's wailing, I suppose. 
And I can hear why it may have taken a while to identify the tune.  Have a 
listen.  Hopefully it's what you're looking for.  In any case, there is some 
nice work on the page.
What instrument was the solo played on?
Bob
