Lily Was Here

Don't think me dino has ever used the Entertainment category before but I wish to share a recent Youtube discovery I made a couple of weeks ago.
Prior to that I do believe I heard saxophonist Candy Dulfer play "Lily Was Here" someplace I can't remember.
Wouldn't ever buy a Candy Dulfer CD because I've found most of her music too jazzy for my Mesozoic tastes.
In another "Lily Was Here" Youtube video Candy said this song was special to her. Well, me dino just loves it.
I prefer this 'un~not because she says nothing at all with her stage shared with guitarist Dave Stewart.
I think the video in the link is the best (and not also because Stewart's face reminds me of a son-in-law, who's different
for being clean-shaven, for my never seeing him wear shades, play a musical instrument and I know he'd never be caught dead in that silly looking suit.) .

    Thanks Dino,
    Candy has a great sax appeal .

    The song uses Call and response, that is a great technique. When one player does a little rift and stops then it is "echoed" by another.
    You have heard it in many songs. Here is a famous tune that applies the method.https://youtu.be/Uzae_SqbmDE

      I've read that method is what jazz musicians are into, though I'm not into jazz but can get into the so-called "Dueling Banjos" (that hit song really one banjo versus one guitar?) in that also a hit Deliverance flick I viewed in an old time stately Dothan, AL, Martin Theater with a balcony (that's now altogether leveled and paved over to provide extra courthouse parking) way back during the Dinosaur Age. Brought more dates and double dates there than I can hope to remember. Remember when The Blob attacked a theater filled with dating teens? Guess where me dino first saw that?.

    I do like that version of the song. She kind of reminds me of Mindi Abair in her playing style. You might want to check her out...

    This one features the amazing guitar master Joe Bonamassa as a bonus!

      Whoa, not only does he rock, she sings. I'll check her out later.
      May be more up my alley. Clock is ticking with someone coming over.

        If you like the blues feel of the song I posted above, I'd highly recommend The East West Sessions. She does have a couple records that are more "jazzy", but I really like her style. Not sure if you watched or remember when Chef Emeril Lagasse used to have his show on TV, but she was a regular musical guest. That's how I got into her in the first place. PS: Check out Joe Bonamassa if you're not familiar. He's just a ridiculously good guitar player. Here's one song that's a favorite of mine...

          Me dino is way, way more into blues than jazz. As for Joe in the link, when he started to pluck, I was thinking I'd like more of a Chuck Berry "back beat you can't lose it" when all in a sudden he exploded and created his own percussion back beat with guitar strings. I really, really liked that. What admirable skill!

            The whole record (also Blu-Ray/DVD) of the Vienna Opera House concert that version of "Woke Up Dreaming" comes from is nothing short of excellent. I will warn you though...if you start buying Joe's work, it's a slippery slope...you'll want it ALL. He's definitely what I'd call a "Blues Master". At 40 years old, he's spent nearly his entire life playing guitar (shared the stage w/ BB King at the age of 14) and it really shows in his concert performances. ENJOY!!

    For the better quality of the recording (and the fact that I really do love Candy's jazz), this one may also appeal to jazz (and guitar) fans:

    You gotta hear this on some Maggies. Really puts Candy's sax in your living room;^)

      That highly skilled guitarist appealed to the guitar fan in me dino, but I like the more condensed version with the silly suit dude better.
      For dino me, that all the more jazzed up longer version began to drag.
      I respect your own tastes and preferences.

        I'm not a fan of rock guitar so I would likely edit down that solo but I know lots of people who love that. ;^) I noticed that the audience seemed more enthusiastic with the sax riffs than the guitar - or is that my biased view ? I liked the arrangement of the one you posted, but the recording quality wasn't as good as I like to hear. That's why I went looking for another one.
        As for guitar artistry, I prefer Igor Presnyakov

          You sure know how to get on an old Bama boy's good side. (One that's not a yuck Auburn fan, that is).
          Used to hear a Lynyrd Skynyrd recording of "Sweet Home" on the loud speakers just before home games before I became too crippled to walk to the football stadium and way the steps to my seat.
          You can't hear that on TV unless happenstance lines up just right during the pregame blather. Then you just catch a part of it.

    Didn't have time for the whole thing; running out of time now.

      Very interesting that you enjoy the least politically correct playwrights in the modern era. G and S book and lyric are works of satirical genius!
      They gave the british government all the respect it richly deserved.
      The Mikado's song is brilliant

        Thank you. I have listened to some others on the machine, for instance "When the Foeman Bares His
        Steel", and others.Maybe I'll look at the other 2 You
        Tube ones later. I don't think of myself as "politically correct", but still, I found out the the Mikado's song originally contained an affront to common decency. It was supposed to be about common annoyances to be punished, and had the lyrics "The lady who dyes a chemical yellow, or stains her grey hair puce/ Or pinches her figger/ Is blacked like a n*/ And painted with walnut juice." I've read that that was taken out in 1947 after complaints on an American tour. (There was also another such reference in Ko-Ko's song. It was taken out too. As it d* well should have been. And shame on Gilbert for putting it in in the first place).
