Demotime

°
Hi guys, just one question:
if the demonstration against capitalism
happens at the main railway station,
how come you are allowed to block both pedestrian and biking paths in Eastend?


There the answer, the angry crowd is expected to march
past the Bank Academy up to the building site of ECB.

There are things that you just HAVE TO HAVE.
Jazz Cd called ODE.
There are many reasons why people buy things.
The name ODE was the reason why Ode purchased this CD.
Well, lucky me, the music is also cool.

Mehr Musikmesse

°
Absolutely colourful.

Serious talk about jazz business.
Serious.
Let's all go to Bremen 19-22.4.2012 and support German Jazz.
The most serious jazzfestival:

Jazzahead.


In the piano hall some innovative drum gadgets.

Sibbe!
Sibelius notation software.
Cool name.

Thanks to my friend Rita in Florida:
she asked me to check some special guitars in the VINTAGE exhibition.

... like the LES PAUL ...
Les Paul? Les who?
Well, the guy who invented electric guitar!

Lester William Polsfuss (June 9, 1915 – August 13, 2009)
—known as Les Paul—
was an American jazz and country guitarist, songwriter and inventor.
He was a pioneer in the development of the solid-body electric guitar
which made the sound of rock and roll possible. (Wikipedia)

The most expensive guitar I've ever seen.

Yes, I did get an interview with Mika Tyyskä!
On air on Sunday, 25.3.
Stay tuned, live stream in www.radiox.de

Musikmesse in Frankfurt

°
Love this banner!

The biggest violin in the world.

Details.

Great vintage exhibition.

This was my very first day ever in the music fair.
Of course met some Finns and Finnish "objects",
like this "jukebox"in the vintage exhibition including
Olavi Virta's Finnish tango.

And futhermore, Kimmo Pohjanen,
world famous accordionist.

Awesome violins, from USA, where else!

This is serious business,
Virus radio from Radio X is broadcasting live 14-18 hrs.


Let me introduce to you Mika Tyyskä,
here playing versus Mr. Fastfinger.
Hopefully I'll get an interview with him tomorrow for Sunday's SISU.

Not only rock'n roll but serious music business.
I never realized how these "drums" look like,
in concerts the lower part is mostly hidden behind the orchestra.

Have to visit the Musikmesse tomorrow again,
even though in some halls the atmosphere is like hundred orchestras
tuning there instruments at the same time.
You are allowed to test the all instruments.
