Otra (que no la última) conexión y adopción

Hoy iba a escribir de otro tema, pero el fin iba a ser el mismo.

No se si os pasa a vosotros, pero a mí la música es capaz de hacerme olvidar un mal momento. Si estoy jodido por algo o alguien, me pongo música y se me olvida. Es una sensación tan radical que, incluso cuando estoy muy triste porque me ha pasado algo realmente malo, y no quiero sentirme féliz porque me da cargo de conciencia sentirme de otra forma que no sea triste, no me pongo música. Porque me hace olvidar cualquier mal rollo. Y me puedo encontrar en un momento malísimo flipando en colores con lo que estoy escuchando. Pero claro, yo es que soy raro, porque incluso lloro de placer provocado por la pura emoción de ver algo tan increible como un buen directo.

Este post va dedicado a un amigo (yo creo que, aunque nos conocemos hace poco, le puedo catalogar así) que por razones ajenas a él, esta bajo de moral. Y que mejor cosa hay que, cuando se está bajo de moral, escuchar buena música, de esa que te lleva, que te hace bailar un poco, o al menos mover la cabeza de un lado a otro, o tamborilear con la mano, con el pié, siguiendo el ritmo.

¡Amiguete! Te propongo que mires la foto de Jon Cleary, la conexión británica de New Orleans. Super desconocido, y aún asi estuvo hace dos años aquí, en el Foro, teloneando a Bonnie Raitt, porque son super colegas, y ella se lo lleva de gira por ahí, por el mundo de dios, a que desparrame buen rollito, bailecitos, ganas de pasarselo bien, y con una calidad fuera de lo normal. Los músicos que le acompañan se hacen llamar The Absolute Monster Gentlemen. El control del instrumento es casi extraterrestre. La música te transporta, y este es uno de esas bandas que no sabes que te va a dar cada vez que los ves, cada vez que los escuchas. Lo que sí sabes que es que te lo vas a pasar bien. Y por eso, mi colega, necesita ya escuchar a Jon Cleary. Porque como te gusta el soul, el funky, la mezcolanza, y música para escuchar....Jon Cleary es tu hombre sin duda alguna.


La fuerza, ¿será divina?, igual es Longhair desde el cielo, o desde el infierno...

Jon Cleary tiene dos discos. Jon Cleary toca el piano, y los teclados, y el Hammond, ... Digamos que os puedo pasar una url donde desacargaros ambos sin problemas y rápido. Los interesados que dejen su email en un comentario y se les paso la url. Digamos que hay opiniones para todo. A mi me gusta más el primero. A otros les gusta más el Pin Your Spin. Bueno cada uno tiene sus prefenrencias, sólo faltaba.

¿Que qué hace Cleary? Pues Música, coño, ¿qué va a hacer si no? De mucha calidad. Vive, porque fue adoptado, en New Orleans, y es colega de Bonnie Raitt. Fiaros más de la primera pista que de la segunda. Este sí que es un descubrimiento.

Y por cierto, demos las gracias al hermano Andrew por su generosidad. Gracias man!

Ya hablaremos.

For the record, because Manolo assumes he knows (but never asks), Jon Cleary actually has 4 CDs. His first, released way back in 1989, is called Alligator Lips & Dirty Rice and is only available through his website. The second, called Moonburn, is considerably better than the first and is available for download from mp3.com. The other two are as listed above.

Saludos, por fin me he decidido a asomarme a la gruta del Blues del maestro Bizuete. Estaba haciendo unas escuchas de cierto CD de cierta mítica Banda de Blues de la zona norte de Madrid y he pensado que estaría bien echar un vistazo al blog del jefecillo de la tribu.

Bueno, poco puedo aportar por aquí, ya que ante tanto erudito del blues no soy ni un mísero monje lego de la "religión". Sin embargo coincido con Manolo en otra cosa, y es que también soy de esas personas que se le pone la piel de gallina, olvida el planeta y se estremece con la música.

Un saludo a todos.
Andrés

Well this blog certainly is not about guitar tab and chord. What the heck! I guess the internet can play some tricks on us sometimes. I have been on-line for two hours
researching guitar tab and chord and came tumbling across your blog. I LOVE IT! I needed a break from guitar tab and chord anyways :-) If you don't mind I want to add your
blog to my favorites list so I can come back later on and read some more stuff. Well I guess I should get back to researching guitar tab and chord.
Even though my search is not on Otra (que no la última) conexión y adopción I am glad I came across your blog. Keep blogging away!

Sad to say I just got back from a bowling tournament and decided to log in and do some websurfing. Manolo I love your blog. I had some very good laughs. I am doing a paper on resonator guitar and have been downloading information for the last hour. I don’t know how I came across Otra (que no la última) conexión y adopción but I am glad I did. It has set me back a little because I have spent the last hour reading your archives. If you don’t mind I would like to add you to my favorites so I can back again and read some more. Well I need to get back to resonator guitar. I am almost finished with it. Great job.
p.s some very good points on your blog

Obviously my search on guitar girl was way off when compared to Otra (que no la última) conexión y adopción and find it funny how it landed me here. The internet is a funny thing. Anyways, great job on your blogging and keep up the good work! I been searching for guitar girl for over 2 hours and needed a break from it. I started reading your blog and really enjoyed it.

I love your blog Manolo. How long has it been on-line? Reason I ask is I am doing a ton of work in the area of online guitar and will probably end up starting a blog of my own. Funny how the internet brought me here when I was doing searches on online guitar. Oh well, I am glad it did. Keep up the great blogging and I am sure I will visit Otra (que no la última) conexión y adopción again!!
