Jazz and Bill Evans 🎶

I didn’t know anything about Jazz but my husband (check his blog hopstrains.com excellent short name) has been researching and finding a lot about different musicians. 

For me, it has always been difficult to listen to Jazz because I always considered it as something that people that are highbrow 🧐  and full of themselves listed to, until recently when I noticed one of my favorite illustrators (Frannerd) listened to it and I was humble and open enough to finally give it a try and I loved it.

One of the musicians we discovered was Bill Evans 🙊 and oh man, he is good, his song “Peace Piece” made me CRY it’s so moving. 

Video 1. Bill Evans – Everybody Digs Bill Evans (1958 Album)

So obviously I wanted to know more 👹 and I found this fantastic article called Romanticism Reincarnated: Bill Evans ‘Peace Piece’ which describes the inspiration behind this song. It mentions two key authors: 

  1. Leonard Bernstein and his piece “On the Town” – Some other time!
  2. Chopin and his piece Berceuse in D-Flat Major, Op. 57: Berceuse in D-Flat Major, Op. 57
And you can definitely hear it 😭 I always have had an affinity for Chopin so now everything makes sense.
Do you like Jazz? Do you have judgements like me about it? Which ones? Do you like Classical music?

PEDESTRIAN AT BEST was written by Courtney Barnett
I love you I hate you 
I’m on the fence it all depends 
whether I’m up I’m down 
I’m on the mend 
transcending all reality. 
I like you despise you admire you 
what are we gonna do 
when everything all falls through? 
I must confess I’ve made a mess 
of what should be a small success 
but I digress 
at least I’ve tried my very best I guess. 
This that the other 
why even bother, 
it won’t be with me on my death bed, 
but I’ll still be in your head.

Put me on a pedestal and I’ll only disappoint you. 
Tell me I’m exceptional I promise to exploit you. 
Give me all your money and I’ll make some origami, honey. 
I think you’re a joke but I don’t find you very funny.

My internal monologue 
is saturated analogue, 
It’s scratched and drifting, 
I’ve become attached to the idea 
it’s all a shifting dream bitter sweet philosophy, 
I’ve got no idea how I even got here. 
I’m resentful 
I’m having an existential time crisis
what bliss, daylight savings won’t fix this mess. 
Underworked and oversexed 
I must express my disinterest, 
the rats are back inside my head 
what would Freud have said?

Put me on a pedestal and I’ll only disappoint you. 
Tell me I’m exceptional I promise to exploit you. 
Give me all your money and I’ll make some origami, honey. 
I think you’re a joke but I don’t find you very funny.

I wanna wash out my head with turpentine and cyanide,
I dislike this internal diatribe 
when I try to catch your eye 
I hate seeing you crying in the kitchen 
I don’t know why it affects me like this when you’re not even mine to consider.
Erroneous.
Harmonious.
I’m hardly sanctimonious.
Dirty clothes, I suppose, 
we all outgrow ourselves.
I’m a fake, 
I’m a phoney, 
I’m awake, 
I’m alone, 
I’m homely, 
I’m a Scorpio.


Put me on a pedestal and I’ll only disappoint you. 
Tell me I’m exceptional I promise to exploit you. 
Give me all your money and I’ll make some origami, honey. 
I think you’re a joke but I don’t find you very funny.

Love,

Paola

Nuevo Video: ¿Una relación? (New Video: A relationship?)

(ESPAÑOL)

Aquí les dejo un nuevo video que me encantó y no pude esperar para compartírselos. Me lo recomendó un amigo y el menciona que trata de cómo se comportan los eres humanos dentro de las relaciones, creo que es muy acertado, además el baile y la música es hermosa. ¿Ustedes qué opinan?

(ENGLISH)

Here is a video shared by one of my friends. I loved it, that’s why I wanted to share it with you. My friend says that this video is about the human behaviour inside of a relationship, I think he is right. Besides, the dance and the music is beautiful. What do you think?

*UPDATE

I found the explanation of the video and I think it worth it to put it here. The most important issue, for me is the significance of talent.
When you get together with talented people (the right people) you can create amazing things like this regardless if it’s very artistic, what means in, many cases to go out of pop music in consequence of money.

“You don’t have all the talents. So look for somebody who has them and make it much better”
