Rick Wakeman - Piano Playlist

#NowPlaying

Rick Wakeman、元YESのキーボードプレイヤー。
何故かYESの音楽はあまり好きになれず「海洋地形学の物語」1枚聴いただけだった。
Rickのソロも「アーサー王と円卓の騎士たち」聴いた程度で、そんなに興味を持つアーティストではなかった。
しかし過日、Dr.JohnやLeon Russellのピアノアルバム漁っているうちに、偶然Rick Wakemanの "Piano Portraits" に遭遇し、予想外に美しく素晴らしかったので、しばらくお気に入りになって夜眠る時とかによく聴いていた。
で先日、他にもないかとSpotify探したら結構な数のAcoustic Pianoアルバムが見つかった。
それ以来、朝から晩までヘビーローテーション。

JazzやBlues系ではないClassical系のピアノ。
やはりCelticの香りもするのか、とても心地よい音です。(ヒーリング要素も高い)

正直、Rick Wakemanにはまるとは思いもしなかった!
 Electric(シンセ)のRick Wakemanは今のところまだパスです (^_^;)

Gregory LeNoir Allman (December 8, 1947 – May 27, 2017)

Rest in peace Gregg.

Gregg Allman, the soulful singer-songwriter and rock 'n' blues pioneer who founded The Allman Brothers Band with his late brother, Duane, and composed such classics as "Midnight Rider," "Melissa" and the epic concert jam "Whipping Post," has died at age 69. He was diagnosed with hepatitis C in 1999 and underwent a liver transplant in 2010.
Allman "passed away peacefully at his home in Savannah, Georgia," read a statement posted to the singer's official website, noting that the family planned to release a statement soon. "Gregg struggled with many health issues over the past several years. During that time, Gregg considered being on the road playing music with his brothers and solo band for his beloved fans, essential medicine for his soul. Playing music lifted him up and kept him going during the toughest of times."
Gregg's longtime manager and close friend Michael Lehman said, "I have lost a dear friend and the world has lost a brilliant pioneer in music. He was a kind and gentle soul with the best laugh I ever heard. His love for his family and bandmates was passionate as was the love he had for his extraordinary fans. Gregg was an incredible partner and an even better friend. We will all miss him."

Gregg is survived by his wife, Shannon Allman, his children, Devon, Elijah Blue, Delilah Island Kurtom and Layla Brooklyn Allman; 3 grandchildren, his niece, Galadrielle Allman, lifelong friend Chank Middleton, and a large extended family.
With his long blond hair, cool facade and songs that chronicled restless, wounded lives, Allman came to personify the sexy, hard-living rock outlaw in a life marked by musical triumph and calamitous loss.

Allman fronted his band for 45 years, first alongside Duane and then as its sole namesake, after his older brother - regarded as one of the most influential guitarists in rock history - was killed in a motorcycle accident in November 1971, just as their trailblazing Southern rock tracks were taking hold on the charts.Soldiering on through grief and then the eerily similar death of bassist Berry Oakley just one year and 10 days after Duane died, Allman and the band became as well known for their stoic survival as they were for their freewheeling concerts.After years of tragedy, dramatic breakups and tense reconciliations, a reconstituted Allman Brothers Band engineered a renaissance starting in the mid-'90s that put their fiery brew of old-time blues, jazz and country rock squarely at the forefront of music's thriving jam scene.The Allmans' annual rite of spring - a three-week run of shows typically held every March at the historic Beacon Theatre on New York's Upper West Side - remade the band into a formidable commercial force in recent decades, long after many in the music industry had written them off.A gentle and at times fierce balladeer, Allman would spend the majority of these shows behind his Hammond organ, taking center stage only briefly, usually with his acoustic guitar for "Melissa," which would start quietly and then blossom into a freeform jam.With 238 concerts at the Beacon from 1989-2014, the Allmans had become such an important tenant that when the theater's new owner, The Madison Square Garden Co., announced plans for a renovation in 2006, Allman was consulted. His plain-spoken advice to executives: "Just don't screw it up."Gregory LeNoir Allman was born in Nashville on Dec. 8, 1947, slightly more than a year after Duane. Tragedy struck early for the brothers when their father, Willis Turner Allman, an Army captain who had just returned home, was shot and killed in 1949 while helping a hitchhiker. The family moved to Daytona Beach, Fla., but

Allman returned to Nashville often to visit relatives, developing an interest in music while there, particularly after seeing a concert featuring Otis Redding, B.B. King, Jackie Wilson and Patti LaBelle on one life-changing bill.
He bought his first guitar for $21.95 at Sears, but soon Duane was demanding to play it. The brothers became so consumed by their music, and so intent on continuing, that Gregg deliberately shot himself in one foot to gain a medical exemption from the Vietnam draft. (He had studied a skeletal chart to find the least damaging place to shoot.)

One of their early bands, The Escorts, evolved into the moderately successful Allman Joys. They toured the South relentlessly, endured an ill-fated label deal in California and were signed - along with Oakley, guitarist Dickey Betts and drummers Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson and Butch Trucks - as The Allman Brothers Band by Macon, Ga.-based Capricorn Records in 1969.The guys were enjoying a first rush of mainstream fame with the release of their third album, the landmark live set At Fillmore East, when Duane was killed in Macon after the motorcycle that he was piloting swerved to avoid a truck and crashed. He was 24.Still in shock, the band quickly resumed work on 1972's Eat a Peach, highlighted by its haunting opening track, "Ain't Wasting Time No More," Allman's enduring tribute to his brother. They summoned their strength once again after Oakley's death - also from a motorcycle crash just blocks from where Duane had been fatally injured - adding new members and recording 1973's Brothers and Sisters. That disc remained No. 1 on Billboard's album chart for five weeks and featured the Betts classics "Jessica" and "Ramblin' Man."The Allmans' fame grew exponentially, and in 1973 they played before a record-breaking 600,000 fans at The Summer Jam at Watkins Glen, N.Y., alongside the Grateful Dead and The Band. But in 1976, the group would endure the first of several rancorous splits, which saw Allman clashing most intensely with Betts for control. (The guitarist would be fired in 2000.)

In 1975, Allman, then 27, was downing a quart of vodka a day, hooked on heroin and already on his third marriage - this time to Cher, ​the '60s pop icon who was then a star of CBS variety shows, first with former husband Sonny Bono and then on her own. But just nine days into the ​new ​union, Cher, distressed by Allman's drug use, walked out.

They reconciled, had a son, Elijah Blue Allman, and briefly became a recording duo, billing themselves as Allman and Woman. Their one record together, 1977's Two the Hard Way, was disparaged by critics and their divergent fan bases and was a particularly tough sell given Cher's professional reunion with Bono for a new CBS show at the time. Allman and Cher divorced in 1979.

During this era, Allman also was something of a grassroots political activist, helping put a little-known Jimmy Carter into the White House with an endless run of fundraising concerts. (When Macon's Mercer University bestowed an honorary doctorate upon Allman in May 2016, it was Carter who presented it.)In a 2015 interview with Dan Rather, Allman detailed his many failed attempts at rehab and how the stage could numb just about any kind of pain."I've walked onstage with an abscessed tooth and as soon as you get out there, it goes away," Allman said. "Walk offstage, it comes back. It's the land of no pain."

His determination to rebuild The Allman Brothers Band dovetailed with his first long stretch of sobriety, finally accomplished at age 47, soon after he saw a replay of his incoherent appearance ​during the group's 1995 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They received Grammy's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012.

By the time The Allman Brothers Band had added 20-year-old guitar prodigy Derek Trucks (nephew of the founding drummer) in 2000, they were finally settling into their most stable groove in three decades - a 15-year finale of sorts that lasted until the younger Trucks and fellow guitarist Warren Haynes decided to leave. The band called it day with one final Beacon run in 2014.

That same year, Allman was again linked with tragedy: The movie-set death of camera assistant Sarah Jones, who was working on the indie biopic Midnight Rider, based on Allman's 2012 autobiography, My Cross to Bear. After Jones was killed and six others injured, director Randall Miller wanted to continue with the film, but Allman begged him to drop the project. A prolific solo artist who also toured and recorded through the decades with his own Gregg Allman Band, he had his biggest solo radio hit in 1987, the catchy "I'm No Angel," which reached the top spot on Billboard's Album Rock Tracks chart.His nine solo albums included All My Friends, recorded at a 2014 tribute concert to him at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, and 2015's Live: Back to Macon, GA. A new studio album, Southern Blood, is scheduled to be released this year.

Allman canceled a round of concert dates in 2016 but got back on the road briefly last fall, performing his last known shows at his own Laid Back Festivals - Sept. 25 at Red Rocks Amphitheatre outside Denver and Oct. 29 at Lakewood Amphitheatre in Atlanta. He endured yet more heartbreak in January when Butch Trucks committed suicide at age 69.

In March, Allman announced that he was canceling all shows in 2017 and offered refunds to fans. His last song on stage appears to have been "One Way Out."

ジョージ・カーリンの手紙「この時代に生きる私たちの矛盾」



ビルは空高くなったが
人の気は短くなり

高速道路は広くなったが 
視野は狭くなり

お金を使ってはいるが 
得る物は少なく

たくさん物を買っているが 
楽しみは少なくなっている

家は大きくなったが 
家庭は小さくなり

より便利になったが 
時間は前よりもない

たくさんの学位を持っても 
センスはなく

知識は増えたが 
決断することは少ない

専門家は大勢いるが 
問題は増えている

薬も増えたが 
健康状態は悪くなっている

飲み過ぎ吸い過ぎ浪費し 
笑うことは少なく
猛スピードで運転し 
すぐ怒り
夜更かしをしすぎて 
起きたときは疲れすぎている

読むことは稀で 
テレビは長く見るが 
祈ることはとても稀である

持ち物は増えているが 
自分の価値は下がっている

喋りすぎるが 
愛することは稀であるどころか憎むことが多すぎる

生計のたてかたは学んだが 
人生を学んではいない

長生きするようになったが 
長らく今を生きていない

月まで行き来できるのに 
近所同士の争いは絶えない

世界は支配したが 
内世界はどうなのか

前より大きい規模のことはなしえたが 
より良いことはなしえていない

空気を浄化し 
魂を汚し
原子核を分裂させられるが 
偏見は取り去ることができない

急ぐことは学んだが 
待つことは覚えず

計画は増えたが 
成し遂げられていない

たくさん書いているが 
学びはせず
情報を手に入れ 
多くのコンピューターを用意しているのに
コミュニケーションはどんどん減っている

ファーストフードで消化は遅く
体は大きいが 
人格は小さく
利益に没頭し 
人間関係は軽薄になっている

世界平和の時代と言われるのに
家族の争いはたえず

レジャーは増えても 
楽しみは少なく
たくさんの食べ物に恵まれても
栄養は少ない

夫婦でかせいでも 
離婚も増え
家は良くなったが 
家庭は壊れている

忘れないでほしい 
愛するものと過ごす時間を
それは永遠には続かないのだ

忘れないでほしい 
すぐそばにいる人を抱きしめることを
あなたが与えることができるこの唯一の宝物には 
1円たりともかからない

忘れないでほしい
あなたのパートナーや愛する者に
「愛している」と言うことを
心を込めて

あなたの心からのキスと抱擁は
傷をいやしてくれるだろう

忘れないでほしい
もう逢えないかもしれない人の手を握り 
その時間を慈しむことを

愛し 
話し 
あなたの心の中にある
かけがえのない思いを
分かち合おう

人生はどれだけ
呼吸をし続けるかで
決まるのではない

どれだけ
心のふるえる瞬間があるかだ

ジョージ・カーリン
====== 以下英文 ======

The paradox of our time in history is that we have
taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider
freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less,
we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and
smaller families, more conveniences, but less time.

We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge,
but less judgment,
more experts, yet more problems, more medicine,
but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly,
laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late,
get up too tired, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our
values. We talk too much, love too seldom,
and hate too often.

We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life.
We’ve added years to life not life to years. We’ve
been all the way to the moon and back, but have
trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor.

We conquered outer space but not inner space.
We’ve done larger things, but not better things.
We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul.

We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice.
We write more, but learn less. We plan more,
but accomplish less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait.
We build more computers to hold more information,
to produce more copies than ever,
but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion,
big men and small character, steep profits
and shallow relationships.

These are the days of two incomes but more divorce,
fancier houses, but broken homes.

These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers,
throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies,
and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill.

It is a time when there is much in the showroom window
and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology
can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose
either to share this insight, or to just hit delete.

Remember, spend some time with your loved ones,
because they are not going to be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to
you in awe, because that little person soon
will grow up and leave your side.

Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you,
because that is the only treasure you can give
with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent.

Remember, to say, “I love you” to your partner and your loved ones,
but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt
when it comes from deep inside of you.

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for
someday that person will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak, and give time
to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take,
but by the moments that take our breath away.

George Carlin
