May 27, 2007 Slavic Passion for Tango
Melva's Musings on Jazz featured the music of Mietek Glinkowski (Raleigh, NC) and Alex Gorodezky (Raleigh, NC), playing their songs live in the studio. This is their second appearance on my show, coming out of Carrboro, NC, every Sunday night from 7:00-9:00 EST. You can listen in from any where in the world by going to www.communityradio.coop and clicking on the button in the upper righthand corner. My radio show features the jazz music of NC jazz musicians of the present and the past.
Mietek played the vitar, an electronic combination of the violin and the guitar, and Alex was on guitar. They have played together many years and believe their common slavic heritage helps them get in the pocket together so seamlessly.
They played music from Argentina, Italy, Hungary and USA. It was a thrill to have them back in the WCOM studio, sharing the music that they love. Several friends stopped by the WCOM radio studio to enjoy the live concert, including Lyle, Sima, and Jill Morrison, in town visiting from Seattle.
Mietek and Alex played the following songs - Cafe 1930 by Astor Piazzolla, Fulana Del Tal by Dino Saluzzi, Milango del Ausente by Dino Saluzzi, Waltz Trieste by Ferenc Vecsey, A map of the World by Pat Metheny, and Estate by Bruno Martino. I finished out the show with Joao Gilberto, from the CD Amoroso/Brazil the song Besame Mucho and then Frankie Alexander, from her CD Mad About the Words, I Loves You, Porgy.
Mietek and Alex can be heard every Sunday from 12:30 - 2:30 at Spice Street in Chapel Hill, in addition to other clubs in the Triangle Area.
See a powerful artist's depiction of waste in America - it's amazing!
