Living For The Live

There’s a lot going on in this clip. It’s pretty good.

Ray Charles + Stevie Wonder, doing one of Stevie’s funk songs, with neither of their bands, for an awards show. It looks like the late 80’s with plastic keyboards and big hair but the talent is so great it works out just fine.

Also since Ray’s R&B big band really doesn’t do the early 70’s funk groove that this song was originally cut in, for this era they turned into a disco-tempo gospel style romp. It’s reframes the song nicely.

Imagine if these two ever did a full record together….

The Power Of A Musical Mind

Yes computer’s seem amazing, but then there’s human’s and the rest of the animal kingdom. Wow.

Human’s ability to process music and lyrics, whether it be creation, memory, or playback is astounding and mysterious.

Certain rare people are called prodigy, their prodigious nature displayed through mastery of instruments and recall. Check out this young man Kuha’o who is blind and developmentally disabled but can play a mean piano, even from memory.

He can instantly learn and recall music on a level that astounds other musicians. Enjoy his youtube videos and he also has an LP available.
