Lyman on Film: Taboo, Taboo Tu, Quiet Village
I'm back. The show went wonderfully, thanks for asking. We packed the house and drank all the rum. Thanks to those among you who attended, you wonderful people.
I look forward now to getting more posts out in the next few days, but for now, here's a little something delightful to get us back in the game: a pair of Arthur Lyman live television appearances, performing "Taboo" and "Taboo Tu." It's really astounding to me, watching the Lyman quartet in action, like a perfect little music box of artifice, restraint, and professionalism, conjuring up a flawless aural illusion of the exotic. Check them out! (And thanks to Mr. Schulkind for hipping me to the second video!) Sorry for the links, embedding has been disabled for both videos.
Oh, and just for kicks and the sheer beauty of it: here's a third video of Lyman playing "Quiet Village" solo on the vibes. It's pretty much exquisite, I highly recommend it.
More to come, very soon!
