Pat Metheny & Lyle Mays – September Fifteenth [As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls, 1981] [reblog]

from Oannes blog…

…Lyle Mays R.I.P.

Ο σημαντικός πιανίστας, κιμπορντίστας και συνθέτης Lyle Mays πέθανε στις 10 Φεβρουαρίου σε ηλκία 66 χρόνων. Μαζί με τον Pat Metheny έχει συνθέσει / ενορχηστρώσει την πλειονότητα των κομματιών του Pat Metheny Group. Πέρα απ’ αυτό έχει κυκλοφορήσει αρκετά άλμπουμ ως leader, και συνεργαστεί με καλλιτέχνες όπως οι Steve Swallow, Joni Mitchell, Eberhard Weber, Bobby McFerrin… Ξεκινάμε ένα μίνι tribute σ’ αυτόν, με ένα κομμάτι από το κλασικό άλμπουμ που κυκλοφόρησε με τον Metheny στα early ’80s.

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
