Warning – Too Dangerous Together

warning.pngJust listening to one of these songs makes me high, what happens if I heard them all together. But be ware that this would effect you, only if you are a Blues listener, and adore Jimi Hendrix as much as I do.
Well, you think I’m kidding, well if you match the conditions above, try to listen to Once I Had a Woman, OK after you listened to it how do you feel, aren’t you high already, Now if you are not high, well you don’t need to continue, as you don’t match the conditions, if you do, well be careful this can be extremely dangerous, it’s preferable that one of the other type be with you – but of course he needs to shut up, cause these people can ruin everything – in case you needed help.

Sign of Thyme

Yesterday, after finishing the process of watching The Waiting (Al-Entzar) – A Palestinian movie which was really great it was played at Zara Expo Auditorium – Grand Hyatt Amman-, we headed directly to the Royal Cultural Center, to watch Sign of Thyme band playing there album Like All People.
I really liked the concert, it was nice, it’s the first time for me to see this band, it’s a group of 5, Yacoub Abu Ghosh (Bass Guitar), Ahmad Barakat (Oud), Tareq Abu Kweik (Drums), Saeb Omari (Classical Guitar), and Ali Dabbagh (Percussion).
I really love this guy called Yacoub, he is the best Bass player I’ve ever seen from Jordan, he is even better than me. (Kidding :P, No body is better than me, Kidding Again :P), He really played A great Bass (I loved his 6 Strings Bass), but there was a little problems for him, I think that the Amplifier he used wasn’t for a Bass, it’s like when Playing Bass on a guitar amp, when he goes to low levels, the sound just gets dizzy, I hope that he can buy a new amp :). other thing When he went out on solos, well his solos were not the best. for me it felt like, I don’t have anything to say, I’m just trying to impress you, it was really empty.
Well the drummer (Tareq) and the percussionist (Ali) was great, they just come into there place, they did a great job. And the guitarist (Saeb) was so unlucky with the sound system, his playing was not heard, but he really played great, This Band really need a good sound engineer, Regarding the Oud player (Ahmad), well, I didn’t like it much, I don’t know, maybe because it’s hard for an Oud player to satisfy me, but I didn’t feel any sense in his playing, sorry man.
Other than that the concert was really great, I really loved there song Asma ( it’s not released yet 🙁 ), and I hated there version of Around Midnight, Maybe cause I heard Miles Davis Version.
Hope the best for Jordanian bands.
By the way, these guys also need to fix there website 😛

What a Night

Oba Oba, I love this woman, do you know what does it feels like when you spend all the night doing nothing but listening to music, especially when it’s performed by Stan Getz, sang by the great Astrud Gilberto, and originally wrote by Joao Gilberto, Oh Dindi, and There is no one like you, (taken from the spirit of Chopin‘s Prelude in Em).
I love you more each day, yes I do, I’ll let you go away, if you only take me with you, and the Girl From Ipanema, takes me to other worlds, no one else can take me to, and How Insensitive, I must have seemed, you didn’t have to be so nice, I would’ve loved you anyway.
And in the end comes Ziad, in his Brazilian concert, with Sho B7ebbek, and his own version of Prelude in Em.
Every time I wanted to shut down the computer, another great song is played, and of course I could do nothing.
Thanks for this great night, of course this is not my first night like this, but I guess this is the first time I write about it.
