Watch Holly Bowling’s Beautiful Take On Grateful Dead’s “Unbroken Chain” [Premiere]

first_imgHolly Bowling continues to wow fans everywhere she goes, taking on the catalogs of jam greats like Phish and the Grateful Dead in a totally unique manner. A classically trained pianist from San Francisco, Bowling first caught the jam scene’s eye with her solo piano interpretation of the famed “Tweezer” jam from Lake Tahoe in 2013.Praise for Bowling’s technique only grew from there, as she eventually released a full album of Phish interpretations called Distillation Of A Dream. Naturally, Bowling set her sights on the jam scene founders themselves: the Grateful Dead.“The Grateful Dead’s music lends itself easily to a solo instrumental interpretation in part because it’s music with intricate songwriting,” says Bowling. “That’s a big piece of it, as anything too repetitive would be difficult to arrange in this format. But more importantly, I think it works because of the depth of emotion expressed in the music.”The pianist is set to release Better Left Unsung on December 9th, a two-CD/three-vinyl album that explores the music of the Grateful Dead in solo piano composition form. You can read all about the album, and find pre-orders, here.With the new album coming out so soon, we wanted to get fans excited by sharing some of Bowling’s foray into the Dead’s catalog. We’re excited to premiere a brand new live video of Bowling’s interpretation of “Unbroken Chain,” played at the Lost Sierra Hoedown on September 24th in Johnsville, CA. Enjoy below!Bowling takes us inside her love of the Grateful Dead and scoring their music. “With solo piano music, and classical music in general, I love the structures and intricacies of composition, but it’s the emotional expression and unspoken human-to-human connection expressed in it that really makes me fall in love with a piece of music. The Dead’s music is just full of that. I feel it. Everyone who loves the Dead’s music feels it. And I think part of the reason my reinterpretation works is because this music resonates with me and holds a lot of meaning. It’s easy to open up and make that connection and pour emotion into these works. And you can feel that when you’re listening. It’s all about connection and expression of human emotion.I don’t mean to downplay the beautiful songwriting–that’s a huge part of it too. The chord changes in “Unbroken Chain,” for example, are unexpected and stunningly beautiful. I feel just as strongly about them as I do about Schubert’s surprise turns of harmony, and he’s one of my absolute favorite composers. They hit me the same way. But even then, we’re back to emotion again! It’s music that makes you feel something, deeply. It’s powerful.”We can’t wait for Better Left Unsung to be released on December 9th, and we also can’t wait to see Holly performing at the upcoming Brooklyn Comes Alive festival on October 22nd. Brooklyn Comes Alive brings over 50 musicians to three venues in Brooklyn, pairing them in exciting super group formations throughout a day full of excellent music. With musicians from The String Cheese Incident, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, The Disco Biscuits, Dead & Company, Snarky Puppy and more – including Holly Bowling – don’t miss out. Tickets can be found here.For more about the Better Left Unsung album, including pre-orders, head here.

Mane hits hat-trick as Liverpool crush Porto

first_img0Shares0000Sadio Mane scored a hat-trick as the Liverpool attack tormented Porto 5-0 © AFP / Francisco LEONGPORTO, Portugal, Feb 15 – Sadio Mane scored a brilliant treble as Liverpool romped to a 5-0 thrashing of Porto at the Estadio do Dragao on Wednesday to march towards the Champions League quarter-finals.Mane fired the away side ahead in the first leg of the last-16 clash, before Mohamed Salah’s audacious finish for his 30th goal of the season quickly made it two. The Senegalese forward slotted in his second as Liverpool completely outclassed their opponents, with Roberto Firmino adding his name to the scoresheet with 20 minutes to play, before Mane’s searing strike completed his first European hat-trick.“It was important to play as a team and we did, we played great football from the beginning,” Mane told BT Sport.“We created so many chances and we scored five. It was well deserved.”Playing in the last 16 of the competition for the first time in nine years, Liverpool are now all but certain to reach the quarter-finals ahead of the second leg at Anfield on March 6.Jurgen Klopp’s men had scored 23 goals in the group stage and continued that scintillating form in Portugal to become the top-scorers in this season’s competition, while the defensive frailties that have plagued them at times this season never resurfaced as Dejan Lovren and Virgil van Dijk put in accomplished displays at the back.“I saw a lot of fantastic performances tonight. The result is only possible if they are all spot on,” said Klopp.“Of course, Sadio is man of the match, three fantastic goals, but they all did well and that is the only way to be successful.”Sergio Conceicao’s deflated Porto will now turn their attentions back to domestic matters, where they hold a two-point lead in the league and are in the Cup semi-finals.Roared on by the home fans, Porto started brightly and Brazilian midfielder Otavio was denied an early goal by a last-ditch tackle from Lovren.But it didn’t take Liverpool long to grow into the game, as left-back Andrew Robertson fired over on his Champions League debut and Ivan Marcano’s brave block prevented Firmino from heading in.But the five-time European champions were gifted the lead in the 25th minute as Porto goalkeeper Jose Sa, who has replaced former Real Madrid great Iker Casillas this season, allowed Mane’s tame strike to squirm underneath his body and into the net.Mane has been overshadowed so far this term by the blistering performances of Firmino and Salah, but the Senegalese forward’s first goal in six games was his fourth in the Champions League.– Salah’s delightful skill –Liverpool forward Salah slots in his side’s second goal at Porto © AFP / MIGUEL RIOPALiverpool took total control of the tie just four minutes later as Salah scored in style.James Milner’s strike crashed into the post, but the Egyptian star was on hand to flick the ball over the onrushing Sa with a magnificent piece of skill and slot into the net.The visitors were utterly dominant, but Tiquinho Soares, playing in place of the injured Vincent Aboubakar, fired narrowly wide for Porto on the stroke of half-time.Porto had plenty of the ball but were always vulnerable to Liverpool’s waves of rapid counter-attacks, and Mane made it three shortly after the restart.The away side cut the Portuguese league leaders to shreds with a series of first-time flicks and passes, and after Firmino was denied by Sa, Mane was on hand to tap in the rebound.The visitors’ relentless pressure meant another goal was almost inevitable, and it arrived when Milner picked out Firmino from a posse of unmarked Liverpool shirts in the centre to slot home his seventh Champions League goal of the campaign.The English outfit still weren’t finished, though, as Mane’s long-range effort flew past Sa with five minutes remaining to round off the procession in fine fashion.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
