One of my all time favorite musician is Hans Groiner: his interpretations of Thelonious Monk’s music are timeless. But today I will talk about his nemesis : Larry Goldings.
I’ve already mentioned Larry Goldings on a previous post “Listen to the Singer“. He has a very well design website of his own, I won’t introduce him again.
The ‘instrumental intervention’ in a song that I’ve chosen today is from Madeleine Peyroux version of Leonard Cohen’s song “Dance me to the end of love”.
Here we have a quite simple song harmonically, in minor key. It’s originally a folk song, with simple and powerful melody and lyrics. When your time comes to solo on a song like that, you need to make a powerful statement, or you’ll be useless: the song don’t need noodling and technical show off.
