        from AttilaSVK Added 534 6 1

        My first vinyl-related upload here. I've also replaced my turntable with this lovely Lenco L75. The cartridge is a Grado Prestige Red1, which has a slight hum, but I'll try a different one soon... (it's on its way to me) http://www.discogs.com/Miles-Davis-Kind-Of-Blue/release/2506823 The audio was not processed in any way. Equipment used: Lenco L75 turntable, Grado Prestige Red1 cartridge, Leema Acoustics Elements Phono preamp, M-Audio MobilePre mkII USB soundcard and my MacBook Pro to put it all together :) Disclaimer: this recording is not intended to be a copyright infringement and it should be classified as for fair use, since it is supposed to show the qualities of vinyl records and the music released on them, in order to support sales.

          • "So What" From Kind of Blue - A Miles Davis Interpretation


            from Mark Campayno Added 282 2 1

            "So What" - A Miles Davis Interpretation Composed by Miles Davis/Arr. by Mark Jeffery Campayno Produced at StudioRock of Northern Virginia by MJC All rights belong to respective owners of material. "So What" is from the album Kind Of Blue Released on Columbia Records Produced by Teo Marcero and Irving Townsend Released August 17, 1959 Here is a quote from myplaydirect about the album Kind Of Blue: Kind of Blue is universally considered to be one of the best albums of all time, of any genre. Fifty years later, Kind of Blue — the epitome of spontaneous invention — is still the best selling jazz album ever. Thumbnail from: Equipment List: PaulGilbert PGM 30 Electric Guitar Ibanez AGR73T Electric Guitar iRig Stomp GarageBand iPad Version Fender Mustang Amplifier THE STORY Miles Davis, always the rebel. That's why I love him so much. He is my all-time favorite musician and his tough no bull.... attitude sits well with me. He took that attitude a bit too far at times and that did alienate him from others more than was necessary. However, this aspect of his personality carried over into his music making him one of he all-time greats. Miles, surprisingly, did not like the term Jazz and generally despised labels on music period. As he often said, labels give critics a way to put musicians in a box. I couldn't agree more. Miles always felt that he was playing music and not playing a label. My approach to both performance and teaching has always been to develop the students ability to hear the voice inside them and to bring that voice out on their instrument. Miles avoided the norm. "So What" comes from his Modal Period wherein, the less is more approach conflicted with the past excesses of bebop. In this regard we can take inspiration knowing that there's no reason to always follow norms in the performing arts unless you want to be and sound like everyone else. Of course, you have to know what the norms are or you run the risk of becoming a mimic. Therefore, before you can branch off into your own sound make sure you are hearing and feeling the vibrations of the music. However, beware of breaking from the norm as it can become a trap if the particular move away becomes becomes too comfortable. Many of the pieces I've produced over the past few months have been rearrangements of well-known works. In that, my approach to "So What", one of the most popular jazz tunes ever, was to do a straight up cover with a longer improvisation. However as soon as I fired up the guitar everything changed. Suddenly I was looking for a way to rearrange the tune so that only the skeleton of the tune remained. I think I accomplished that. I originally made the backing track for a guitarist I met from Italy. She is a was that she is a marvelous up-and-coming jazz musician and I made the track in order to do a improvisational collaboration. Well, as often happens, time constraints and impatience on my part led me to going ahead. As for the guitars, the Ibanez literally kicks a.. I am stunned by the clarity of tone and the response. The PGM 30 was a bit muddier, however the whammy bar is just the coolest thing ever and was my nod to Mile's more psychedelic period, one in which, he became friends (and rivals) with, Jimi Hendrix. I hope you like the result of my experimentation. I was trying to keep this piece under four minutes but it proved too difficult. I hope you don't mind sitting two minutes beyond the norm (haha) and listen to my interpretation of Mile's beloved "So What", one of my favorite tunes by one of the greatest musicians of all time. Thank you for supporting each other in our quest to have a place to share our art. Mark
