I've seen the old spaghetti Westerns but never a Symphony playing these songs

I usually have a playlist with this sound when I'm on the PC.  I'm a jazz fan, mostly prefer older jazz sounds but I like this sound.  It's Paul Hardcastle, sometimes known by the name of the group, "Jazzmasters".

Thanks for the help :)  I've seen it done at other forums but hadn't asked about it.

 

I heard this player perform in NYC during my past business travels there.  It's a more traditional jazz sound, the sound that I usually prefer to hear live.

 

I heard him play at one of NYC's well-known jazz clubs, the "Village Vanguard".  I closed the place that night :D

 

 

 

This one's at the end of my playlist.  I like to listen to it at the end of the day on the PC or early the next morning.

 

I was fortunate to hear the piano player live years ago in Dallas.  "Bill Evans", in jazz circles, one of the most well-known traditional piano artists.

Nice jazz selections, Scoop.

 

Thanks for sharing them!

I like the more modern jazz sound too.  Here's one by "George Benson", who became a well-known name during the 70's.

Ok... why can't I stop listening to Joss Stone right now ??

 

Jazz... Joss... things are swirling around in my head (no jokes please ;) )

 

Found something. Oh My..

Herbie :)   I have several CD's of his in the collection.

 

I haven't heard him in this setting before, with a "Motown" sound.  Cool :)

 

Here's one of Herbie's early tracks, among my favorites with "Bobby Hutcherson" on the Vibes.

The Yardbirds - Heart Full of Soul ('65)... :P

Wow, that brings back memories :D .  I remember my sister was crazy about that group.

I was a "Turtles" fan among other groups of similar sounds of that era.  I played this one so much I wore out the record :D

I love that "old school" music?

 

Brothers Johnson, that's one I hadn't heard before now.  Thanks :)

 

Believe, I do believe you :)  I have a nephew that surprises me as well.  He actually likes some older tunes as well as older TV shows.

 

Here's another one that was a big hit back in the day.  It's in my top all-time pop tunes list.

Your welcome :)  As soon as I started listening to "Windy" I was like, "Hmm, I recognize this tune from somewhere, I've heard it before but don't quite remember it". Now I remember it, thanks :) . There are some songs that I used to love, but I can't listen to anymore because they remind me of a certain girl, I'm sure some of the guys here can relate to that...

As for songs that I can still listen to :P here is one from '83

^ "Yes" to Yes :).  That group was a huge favorite back long ago during my guitar-playing days.  I hadn't heard this one until today.  Nice :)  Parts of that video reminds me of the "Matrix" 1st movie.

 

Here's another "Yes" track, on of their early big hits.  I used to play this one on the front porch long ago.

 

 

Speaking of girl memories, I know what you mean there.  This memory's a good one :)  I used to play this "Yes" track with my classical guitar to impress a girl :D

Steve Howe ("Yes" guitarist back then) was an accomplished classical guitar player so that's probably one reason I bought their LP's back then.
