m3838 Posted October 1, 2008 Share Posted October 1, 2008 Here's Johnny Doran, playing solo Uilleann pipes: Colonel Fraser - My Love Is In America - Rakish Paddy. This was recorded live in 1947, first take, no edits or re-dos. The acetate ran out, which is why there's a fade at the end. What do you think? I think he's stupendous, but Pipes is my weak spot, I can listen to them any time, good and bad playing. Just like the sound, it transposes me elsewhere. It's not to the point though. One of the points was that these wonderful ITM musicians (bow to the Holy Abbreviation, let Allah prolong it's years) can play anything. So I heard them playing ITM (let Allah prolong the years of the Holy Abbreviation). Now I'd like to listen to the same musician playing Shubert, then Bernstein. But the point is mute, and even shouldn't be proven, because who really cares? All I was pointing at is knowing one's place. It may lead to actually appreciating that place more.
