You have a beautiful heart, indeed. Thank you for sharing. I myself love instrumentals. The warrior song has healing effect on me when I am down. Plus Sean the guy behind it is really nice guy. All the group members are either ex military or still serving. They released it at time the servicemen were committing suicides to the left and to the right after they came home from war & the VA was caught red handed giving them garbage care. They released it as a support song, so their hearts were at the right place. As far as instrumentals, all I find myself listening to for last few is epic music. ...Hope you like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJ8TtE3jaok

Very nice arrangement. I only played a few times in a symphonic orchestra and big bands, and most of my experience is with trios, quartets and quintets, which offer complete freedom of spontaneous expression and intimacy between the musicians. It's never the same and sometimes it doesn't work. But when it does, when it all fits, an empathy emerges which is really emotionally rewarding. But on a clear sky at night here in No Idaho, I like to sit on the porch, watch the stars and sometimes the northern lights and listen to this concerto By Charles Ives; "The Unanswered Question", and reading the musical notation, I can identify with the as yet unanswwered question about the implacable background of the universe and the dynamics of string theory and wave functions and wave interference. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lz89IFdP-As This is one of my altime favotites by the Modern Jazz Quartet playing Django in memory of the famous guitar player Django Reinhardt. The piano solo by John Lewis is exquisite in it's very simplicity and melancholy resolving in celebration of the genius. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLjjN2zovRU And another one more Pat Metheny Group tune; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1f-R6s1XyE

Sublime!!! Wish I could slip into either pieces and use them as portals to just transfer to some corresponding world. The second one I listened to the first 10, I will have to do the rest of it next time I log on. Didn’t know you could catch the northern lights from Idaho. Thank you so much. Who needs big pharma when you got such crystal Cures. I wonder how Big Pharma would react if someone tried to introduce a legislation that would legalize prescribing music to cure something. They’d start to pull their hair I imagine.
What instrument do you play?
Again, you’re so savvy. that was Fantastic. Love them.

I am glad you liked them, it shows that we have empathy how music affects our emotional responses. I'm a retired bassplayer.

@ InBetween,
Are you familiar with Tomita? Check him out on YouTube It’s purely synthesized music, but very interesting.
He does a lot synthesized renditions of classical music.
Oh, and if you like romantic music. This live clip by Michel Petrucciani should stir you soul. This is a story of pure ecstatic love .

No I am not. This is the first time I hear him. thank you so much. Really cool and Michel sent me back to Saint Preux, which I really love. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8NOBBvQRT-w&list=PLm4R11wVcC6irbn6wBDET5GsoqwGzMNbK Also Richard Clayderman https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCCan3TFPoc Also David Phelps, who is a Christian artist but also performs outside of the genre. I love his rendition of Nassum Dorma, which is Pavarotti's https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aaSDNH5Azi8 The 3rd is for whomever likes it. I don't know if you are into opera stuff...

Gorgeous music…all in my library now.

I'm a retired bassplayer.
Contrabass? Classical?
I'm a retired bassplayer.
Contrabass? Classical?Yep, for the first 7 years I played the night club circuit with a Roth upright, but it was so wieldy, I switched to a Peavey elecric for the last three years on the road. Then I got married and took an 9 to 5 job as bookkeeper, playing classical in our small town orchestra. There is no jazz in No Idaho..... :sick: I still have both but seldom play anymore, except for occasionally "sitting in" with local bands. I can't use the upright anymore because my callouses are all gone after 10 years of bookkeeping. So it stands in a corner and is home to a few spiders... :-)

My dad used the cello for classical music and the contrabass for jazz. He practiced a lot and I loved the sound of it. Poor guy none of his five kids had any talent for playing, but we all love listening.

A few years ago now I worked with Camden Hughes in the Great Basin Jazz Camp. Camden's a great jazz multi-instrumentalist who works around Boise.

Poor guy none of his five kids had any talent for playing, but we all love listening. Yes, apart from the piano, I think the cello is the most versatile and melodic instrument, but as I have large hands and fingers, the bass was easy for me to handle and I always liked the idea that the bass is both a rhythmical as well as melodic instrument which bridges pure rhythm with melodic content. A subtle foundation, especially in smaller jazz combos. A perfect example of this is evident in this excellent Bireli Lagrene trio playing "C'est si bon", primarily a straight bass-line. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbu8ZdojVg4 as well in the Ahmad Jamal new version of "Poinciana", the interplay between bass and piano is just lovely. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31GtrfgrSY0 p.s. I have a virtual jazz club; "Foggy Manor Jass Club" on PalTalk which allows me to broadcast jazz in the music (jazz) section. It's great fun and an opportunity to listen to jazz from all over the world as everyone has opportunity to broadcas their favorite tunes.
