Sunny : summer and music

Thursday 21 June 2012

After a long absence on the net, I decided to come back today in a symbolic manner which is June 21: Day of Summer and festival of music!

When we speak about summer , one of the first thoughts is still the sun, hey we’re not going to miss out, this post will be sunny and music through SUNNY!

The “older” know what I mean with SUNNY, the youngest perhaps know the song but not knowing that this beautiful melody which had been released in 1966.

So we will have fun watching and listening to some interpretations more or less musically good …. of Sunny !

Feel free to let me know of interpretations that are not listed in this post, which has also not pretended to list them all.

We’ll start by the composer of this wonderfull song Bobby Hebb

Then come THEversion of Johnny Rivers!

A vesion soul and dance from the beloved James Brown , the Sex Machine’s man

Another soul version of the beloved Marvin Gaye

Even Stevie Wonder did it :

A surprising version from…the actor Robert Mitchum

A jazzy version ….4’o clock in the morning by Nancy Wilson

For the end ….a japanese version which comes from  a tv reality show….

Some more version from George Benson, Ella Fitzgerald and Boney M, et some more …

Very good summer and Happy music festival

Restaurant Le Jaboulay in Lyon (France)

Wednesday 17 November 2010

A nice welcome to Jean-Michel, who was in the beginning of Marron Rouge, but he decided to pursue his project. Go to see him in his restaurant, He is not only nice and kind, but the food is really good.
Restaurant Bar Porte Pot
The singularity of this place is to introduce someone who have a cook know how or a family cook heritage , to make public his talent(s) and recipes and to be the “chef” of one day for the usual customers. The project of a participatory restaurant gives to this rich culture, the possibility to develop and rediscover the culinary heritage and its traditions. The meeting with stakeholders and customers will be then an exchange which will permit to be either a Chef or a Guest. A (cook) library will be available for everyone: anyone could borrow for one week a book or to propose his recipes forgotten.

Hello,

It make already one week that our web site is open and it’s good. Life goes on in the wonderfull city of Lyon. Last friday and saturday I was at “Nights of Fourvière” and I listened and saw two concerts. Friday evening Keith Jarett and his two friends  Jack DeJohnette and Gary Peacock did it on stage : nothing to add on the musical performance, it was  excellent. Two years ago there was more emotion. The personality of the 3 guys is sometimes embarrasing, we always thought:  do they love public who pay to come to see them??

Saturday night Rodrigo y Gabriela two wonderfull mexicans had litterally capitivated the antique theather of  Fourvière. It was good, energic, amuzing and very good muscally. I left the place invigorated

To end this little word in music,  thanks to “Courrier International” (French weekly) and to Nicolas, to give us the last record of Prince! First listening we like it, then we listen a second time and then we still continue to listen it.

Jean-Marc
