Erik Truffaz..

is simply a trumpet wizard!!

What can he do with it is sometimes simply unbelievable!!

If there is someone, who goes beyond the “traditional” jazz borders, than it is him!

This musician, originally born in Switzerland charmed me when I had been studying at college. Ask my roommates, who had to suffer long hours listening to this music 🙂

OK – let’s go deep in it!

The heroes of mine 2. – Jay and Silent Bob…

These guys are simply fantastic! One only talks about sex, wanking, smoking weed and woman, the other one usually says 2-3 replies in the whole film…

It is, as said the guy, who wanted to buy some weed in Clerks 2: “I like them – they are funny”.

This couple was created by the imagination of the Kevin Smith – screenwriter, director, actor, producer…

This couple of funny drug-dealers was present in almost all of the Kevin’s films.

Their childish, sarcastic, ironic and sometimes gross humour is great and real fun.

And since this blog is about them, I will put here a few videos – I hope you will like them and maybe you will see the films – they are way cool, believe me!

So here we go – Fucking Short Version of the Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back!

Second – Jay’s Rap – Clerks II:

Third – Jay is dancing – Clerks II (btw. a great parody of the famous scene from the film…. guess – which one? 🙂 ):

Fourth – A few cuts from the Clerks II:

Fifth – great Mark Hamill (Luke – “Don’t fuck with the Jadi Master, son!”) – clash of the light sabers – Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back!:

Sixth – Olaf’s Berserker – Clerks I. :

And – bonus – the cool and accurately ironic and sarcastic – “porch-monkey” scene from the Clerks II:

Have a nice weekend!

Technical note:
Since one of my audio servers changed the policy and do not provide direct links, all of my musical blogs, which were linked to this server are dead…. If you try to play the songs and you will see “Error opening file”, this is the case…
I am really sorry for that, but I cannot do anything..

Jon Kennedy

Well, and here we have another really good and talented musician – Jon Kennedy from UK ( I guess 🙂 ).

His music can be easily recognized by typical mixing of different styles of music – creating a musical mixture, which is really addictive!

But – try it for yourself!

Sneaker Pimps

Well, here we have another of my favourite bands – British Sneaker Pimps! (Thanks Alice!)

Their music is mostly marked as electropop, but that could be slightly misleading. But still, they have been using electronic sounds and effects quite a lot.

Their music is really interesting and worthy of listening… but you may find it kinda slightly disturbing… See for yourself!

The Cinematic Orchestra

Well, I guess that it is time to put here some (modern!) jazz again.

Take some really good instrumentalists, add singer with beautiful voice, mix it to get a deep, multi-layered sound – and voilá – you have UK band The Cinematic Orchestra!
