Happy Birthday, Ms. Patti!

And happy New Year!

What a friend you are…!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, where have you been, my darling young one?
I’ve stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains,
I’ve walked and I’ve crawled on six crooked highways,
I’ve stepped in the middle of seven sad forests,
I’ve been out in front of a dozen dead oceans,
I’ve been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard,
And it’s a hard, and it’s a hard, it’s a hard, and it’s a hard,
And it’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall.
Oh, what did you see, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, what did you see, my darling young one?
I saw a newborn baby with wild wolves all around it
I saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it,
I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin’,
I saw a room full of men with their hammers a-bleedin’,
I saw

On the road again

Siamo di nuovo sulla Strada. Cominciamo a camminare, insieme.

Well, I’m so tired of crying, but i’m out
on the road again.
– I’m on the road again.
Well, I’m so tired of crying, but I’m out
on the road again.
– I’m on the road again.
I ain’t got no woman
Just to call my special friend.
You know the first time I traveled out
in the rain and snow,
– In the rain and snow.
You know the first time I traveled out
in the rain and snow,
– In the rain and snow.
I didn’t have no payroll,
Not even no place to go.
And my dear mother left me when
I was quite young,
– When I was quite young.
And my dear mother left me when
I was quite young,
– When I was quite young.
She said “Lord, have mercy
On my wicked son.”
Take a hint from me, mama, please
don’t you cry no more,
– Don’t you cry no more.
Take a hint from me, mama, please
don’t you cry no more,
– Don’t you cry no more.
‘Cause it’s soon one morning
Down the road I’m going.
But I aint going down that
long old lonesome road
All by myself.
But I aint going down that
long old lonesome road
All by myself.
I can’t carry you, Baby,
Gonna carry somebody else.

Rino De Patre, single del giorno

“Comporre musica per me è un’esigenza e la chitarra è un <prolungamento> del mio essere. Persone, luoghi, volti, sentimenti, istanti: tutto ciò si trasforma nella mia mente e nella mia anima, in note, melodie e ritmi, come in un caleidoscopio multiforme di luci e colori”.

Così parla di sé Rino De Patre e così parlano di lui: “E’ come uno scrigno che contiene tante preziosità (…) una musica che è anche poesia…” (Giorgio Gaslini).

Rino assorbe da jazz, folk, tango, bossanova, li contiene tutti, e miscela con “Antonio Leofreddi,  un violista di eccezionale bravura. La dolcezza e il ritmo della chitarra si uniscono alle sonorità e al timbro particolare della viola talvolta colorata con l’effettistica analogica e digitale;  il tocco rapido e netto della chitarra, rincorre il suono prolungato e melodico della viola per creare un’atmosfera particolare, unica per chi ascolta. La perfetta sintonia e l’intesa che si crea quando suoniamo, sono un valore aggiunto per la mia musica”.

Il Rino De Patre DUO Project sarà sabato 22 marzo al Koro, alle 21.

Blinking and breathing by Simon Van Gend

I can remember a scene from when I

was only four, I was walking with my

brother and his friends along down the road

I was only looking for
a way to feel safe once more
everybody was safe one time
before the blinking and breathing and crying

and then my brother and his friends began
pelting me with stones, I cried and I ran
back to the house, there was no one at home

I was only looking for
a way to feel safe once more
everybody was safe one time
before the blinking and breathing and crying

I ran through the gate and I ran through the door
I called up my mom where she worked at the store
she said don’t call here I’ve told you before

I was only looking for
a way to feel safe once more
everybody was safe one time
before the blinking and breathing and crying

I ran to my bed and howled at the wall
I screamed and I cried till my body was sore
and then I decided to hide in my core
I decided that I wouldn’t cry any more

I was only looking for
a way to feel safe once more
everybody was safe one time
before the blinking and breathing and crying.
