Here are some of our latest Chamber Blues videos:
Thank you to Shure Incorporated for the use of their Performance and Listening Center, for recording the performances at the highest quality, and making these video offerings possible. – Corky
A nice juxtaposition of CLASSICAL & BLUES. Part of a larger work commissioned by Lila Wallace. Jaime Gorgojo – Violin.
|ANGEL FOOD CAKE
A wild version of a Siegel-Schwall Band favorite. This is a compositional “call and response” battle of CLASSICAL & BLUES
|SLOW INDIGO – Op. 16
A slow building PIANO BLUES improvisation set in the world of CLASSICAL music featuring blues cello solo with a classical flavor. Cello - Jocelyn Butler.
WORLD MUSIC: Traditional Chinese folk song with a Chamber Blues compositional style arrangement. Chihsuan Yang – Erhu (Chinese Violin). We actually call this: Galloping Horseplay
|ITALIAN SHUFFLE WITH SAM LAY
One of my favorites includes a song that is licensed for commercial release but is still in negotiations for YouTube release. – C. Siegel
MOSTLY CLASSICAL: with a late entrance of blues harmonica. Composer: Richard Halajian
|BURNT SIENNA – Op. 14
New Orleans Flavored Classical Dance with Fratoire (scrub board played by Frankie Donaldson).
|UNFINISHED JUMP – Op. 13
BLUES & CLASSICAL together. Written for Michael (Air) Jordan
