Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine.

Man love.

It's no secret that I like Yo-Yo Ma's cello playing, and that I thought that Morricone's "Ecstasy For Gold" was an inspired work.

I don't cry for beauty much. My eyes were wet after listening to this version.

As fan of both artists - that's incredible.

Here's a movie recommendation for you: "The Legend of 1900". It's about a young man who was born a foundling on a cruise ship at the turn of the century, and who turned out to be a musical prodigy, but who could never bring himself to leave the ship.

Morricone provides the score and, as music flows through every aspect of this story - it's not the typical underscore. It's one of his best scores, and there are few, if any, other composers who could have done it justice.

I long time ago in a land far away I had the opportunity to sit throught a practice session for a concert Yo-Yo- Ma was playing. When the peice was finished there was absolute silence until one of the orcheatra simply said...WOW.
The resonse of Mr. Ma to that comment was "that's the best compliment I've every gotten" He is a remarkable individual.

You know I thoroughly enjoyed it. Have you ever seen the video of David Bell playing his stradivarius in Grand Central station? That's pretty special, too.

Matt,
Try this one. Different instrument but unmistakable talent.
