Musical discussion II

Rick, Vijay and I met again yesterday to discuss and explore some more music. We started off with Sili Hawa Chhoo Gayi (from Libaas), which used the China Block or the Chinese Block. The next was the opening to the medley of Hum Kisise Kum Nahin (which was again indicative of the influence of jazz, big band and Isaac Hayes on R. D. Burman), the opening to Bachna Ae Haseeno from the same film and finally the opening to Lekar Hum Diwaana Dil from Yaadon Ki Baaraat (the sound of the guitar reminded Rick of the rolling Leslies that accompanied Hammonds, no longer found now. However, the Leslies are on a resurgence thanks to the use of the Hammond B3 by people like Medeski, Martin and Wood). We also listened to In a Metal Mood: No More Mr. Nice Guy, Pat Boone's sendoff on heavy metal with great band arrangements. {first week}
