Dueling Cellos May 24, 2011

Posted by Retired Geezer in Music, Religion.

I never thought of a Cello as an exciting musical instrument. I ranked it just below the Glockenspiel but about 14 points above the Clarinet.
This video changed my mind.

I blatantly stole this video from my Blog-Mama, Sondra K.

Dang. I watched that three times in a row. It was awesome.

*feels bad about the Clarinet slam

That is a bad ass song. MJ nailed it, and Alien Ant Farm did a rockin version. Killah base.

Both those boys are adorable. It’s so cool to watch musicians feed off each other’s energy. Love it.

It’s not as cool as a drummer and a bass player.

And it’s not feeding so much as willing the other bastard to burst into flames.

It’s not as cool as a drummer and a bass player.

Or, you can walk outside and see if your petunias are any bigger.

Many moons ago, I saw Lyle Lovett’s Big Band live. The band really was big, with 12 people on stage at once, including a cello player.

He did an ass-kicking solo and got a standing ovation at the end.

If you had told me that morning that I’d see a cello player with a modern band from Texas get a standing O, I would not have believed you.
