The Cello Song - (Bach is back with 7 more cellos) - ThePianoGuys - (Steven Sharp Nelson)

The Piano Guys is an American music duo consisting of Jon Schmidt and Steven Sharp Nelson. They became famous through YouTube, where they posted videos of renditions and mashes of popular songs accompanied by professional-looking video clips. In December 2011 they released their first album.

 

The Cello Song is based on one of the most recognizable classical pieces ever written, J.S. Bach's Unaccompanied Cello Suite No. 1: Prelude. (Hint: Say Bach's title with an English accent and it sounds a lot better). It's been featured in a lot of movies (and car commercials)...Steven Sharp Nelson decided that this piece needed some accompaniment (Bach must have been busy and never got around to it? :) Adding some original material and 7 more cello parts stacked on top of each other, Steve has created a cool new sound that embellishes all the features that have made Bach's work so popular. The 7 new parts include drawn-out melodies which soar above fast arpeggios, strumming chords from a guitar-like part, shaker sounds (accomplished by rubbing the sides of the cello), tremolo (1:08-1:24), and a cello-banging percussion part (complete with kick drum).
"Bach was an amazing composer -- one of the best that ever lived. He wasn't the greatest with titles though (smile)... As a consequence, no one can ever remember his Cello Suite's name...so when I'm asked to perform his piece people always say, 'hey, can you play that ... um ... that cello song?' And so in Bach's honor I name this adaptation of his amazing composition after what it has been naturally called for hundreds of years. Thanks for listening!"   -Steven Sharp Nelson

Avishai Cohen - No Words

No Words by Avishai Cohen off the album At Home.

 

Avishai Cohen (en hebreo: אבישי כהן‎) (Kibbutz Kabri, Israel, 20 de abril de 1970) es un contrabajista, compositor, cantante y arreglista israelí de jazz. No debe confundirse con el trompetista de igual nombre.

Avishai comenzó tocando el piano a los 9 años, pero cambió al bajo eléctrico a los 14 años, inspirado por Jaco Pastorius.1 Tras tocar dos años en una banda del ejército, durante su servicio militar obligatorio, tomó clases de bajo con Michael Klinghoffer. Dos años después se trasladó a Nueva York, para tomar contacto con otros músicos de jazz. En los primeros tiempos de su estancia neoyorkina, trabajó en la construcción, mientras tocaba en el metro y en las calles. Estudió música en "The New School for Music", y tocó con algunas bandas de jazz latino, lo que facilitó que Danilo Pérez lo llamara para formar parte de su trío.2

 

Tras un largo periodo tocando en pequeños clubs, Cohen recibió la llamada de Chick Corea y obtuvo un contrato de grabación. En 1996, se convirtió en miembro del sexteto de Corea ("Origin"), y publicó su primer álbum en el sello de este, Stretch.2 Cohen permaneció con Corea hasta 2003, cuando creó su propio sello; desde entonces tocó con su propio grupo, el Avishai Cohen Trio, con Mark Guiliana en la batería y su compatriota Shai Maestro al piano). En algunas grabaciones ampliaba el grupo con instrumentos de viento.

 

Cohen ha acompañado, grabado y actuado con un buen número de músicos, además de Corea, como Bobby McFerrin, Roy Hargrove, Herbie Hancock, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Nnenna Freelon o Paquito D'Rivera.2 También ha colaborado con Claudia Acuña (Wind from the South, 2000), Alicia Keys y la London Philharmonic Orchestra,2 con bastante repercusión mediática.3 Ha sido destacado por Down Beat, y designado como uno de los bajistas más influyentes del siglo XX por la revista especializada Bass Player.

Code Name Vivaldi (Bourne Soundtrack/Vivaldi Double Cello Concerto) - ThePianoGuys

The Piano Guys is an American music duo consisting of Jon Schmidt and Steven Sharp Nelson. They became famous through YouTube, where they posted videos of renditions and mashes of popular songs accompanied by professional-looking video clips. In December 2011 they released their first album.

 

Story behind the song: There are few "hooks" in the movie-music world that are as grabby as the Bourne Identity Soundtrack riff (starts at 0:29). Like the movie series, its intensity commands attention. We just had to figure out a way to use it. In our usual style, we thought we'd create an "action movie soundtrack" that combined this and a piece of classical music. In the early 1700's Antonio Vivaldi wrote a concerto for an instrument that was then largely "undiscovered" by the music world -- the cello. Among the first cello solo pieces ever written, Vivaldi was gutsy enough to write it for not only one, but TWO solo cellos and string orchestra. With no "action movies" in the 1700's, this piece was probably the closest you could get to one. It has intense and exciting moments between beautiful lyrical moments. It was this piece, among others, that got Steven (the cello guy) excited about classical music—it was one of the first pieces he played with orchestra.
90% of this tune was written in 3 days. We worked on it day and night because it was so enjoyable to write.
This video features Steve's newest cello "Thor." It was handmade for Steven by Dawson Swan out of STEEL. Dawson is an amazing artist. Check his website out here: http://dawesome.net/MetalCello.html. This cello inspired a lot of this music and video. ALL the percussion sounds you hear were created by THIS cello. Thank you Dawson!
Check out this recording of the actual Vivaldi piece: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2v89X_1ipc (Yo Yo Ma playing it with the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra)
A HUGE thank you to the Heber Valley Railroad who gave us full access to a beautiful train in order to film this. Visit their site: http://hebervalleyrr.org/
Another HUGE thank you to Paul Anderson (not our Paul Anderson, another Paul Anderson) -- who rolled out the red carpet for us at the Mountain Cement Facility.
