Sunday Session – B


I know that Thea has said that there are no rules, but I think some kind of focus for me is a good thing. Somehow B seemed  appropriate. You’ll get my drift before the end of it.

I’ve just started playing with a reggae band, so I’ve been listening to the tunes of this amazing musician for inspiration. After all, Bob Marley IS REGGAE, right?

Bob Marley – Them Belly Full

Over the weekend I listened to Beethoven’s Symphony No.9 (his last) played by the Australian World Orchestra. This amazing orchestra is made up of professional Australian musicians, all of whom travelled from around the world, and around Australia, to take part.  The broadcast on ABC Classic FM was almost as good as being at the Sydney Opera House 😉 It’s such an uplifting piece of music, and quite something to see it performed live. What beats it? Actually performing it as part of the orchestra or choir. Enjoy this performance (0ver two videos) by the NAFA Orchestra from Singapore.

Beethoven – Symphony No.9, 4th movement (in 2 parts).

I was introduced to Beady Belle a few years ago by some friends at our church in Perth. This particular tune is good late-night-winding-down music. So sit back, relax, and enjoy it, if you’re in that kind of mood.
