PostSubject: New Programs 2010-2011- Jazz? Music for the coming season   Tue Apr 27, 2010 4:08 pm

http://hochi.yomiuri.co.jp/sports/winter/news/20100423-OHT1T00023.htm
Dai-chan has already started to select music for new programs and said "Jazz is the most probable choice."

Well, I'm totally unfamiliar with jazz….. Sad I only know some hugely famous jazz music, such as "Moonlight Serenade", "Summer time" or "Take the A train". Is "Unforgettable" a piece of jazz music?? Then it's fine for Dai-chan.

Anyway, if there is anyone who love jazz here, please tell me some nice jazz music for Dai-chan. bounce bounce


Even I don't know jazz music, I'm enjoying imagining his new music recently, as always in this time of the year. I guess, everyone here is doing the same kind of thing. Cool Wink So, let's share our choices here!! I'm iterested in other members' choices very much. I'll go first!

BTW, these are the musics which Dai-chan once mentioned as the music he wanted to skate to. (Is there anything other than these?? Rolling Eyes )

Diva Dance from the film "Fifth Element"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQEDhQnxZxI

Adagio by Albinoni
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mz4dpbk8YBs



---------------------------------------
Here are my choices!

Rachmaninov: Symphony No.2 Mvt.3
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbZYzoidkYU
I love this heavenly beautiful piece of music I love you but I used to think it was difficult to skate. But after I saw V/M Mahler FD (Fantastic!!), I really want Dai-chan to skate to this. I think he can do! Very Happy

Ravel: Tzigane
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dj21PCQ-nzQ
Is it a bit similar to "eye"? Because it has Latin taste.

Bach: Chaconne
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5bVRTtcWmXI

Falla: Ritual Fire Dance
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5vHUODzcJ8
Again, Latin taste.

Mascagni: Cavalleria rusticana
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xvdig4N0bpk
Too feminine?

Jeff Beck: So What
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HbYXWtTmtRw
This would remind you of Takahiko's SP, though.

Peter Gabriel: The Feeling Begins
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uTAaKAVpOOM
This would remind you of Michel Kwan, though. Laughing



For EX. cheers cheers

I have tons of idea for EX as a rock music fan. I love Oasis but I can't imagine Dai-chan skating to their songs…… Neutral So I choose these.Maybe better than Oasis to skate. Very Happy

Muse: Super Massive Black Hole
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xsp3_a-PMTw

Radiohead: Idioteque
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21Zd8xPUQs8
"Jigsaw Faling Into Place" is also nice.

The Music: Take The Long Road And Walk it
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ospxlZZM2Hw

Underworld: Push Upstairs
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4nRNoXT_gUc
"Cowgirl" and "Jumbo" are nice too.

U2: Get on Your Boots
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JcDNilZbZg8

Tahiti80: Soul Deep
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9ge0KMnb0w
Very cute. Of course, "1000 times" is very nice, too.

The Chemical Brothers: The Salmon Dance
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LyHakCQN0Ss
A comical song. "Come inside", "Let forever be", "Saturate" and "Setting Sun" are also nice.

Ohhhh, I'm already doing this for 2 hours and have to stop now!!! bounce pale

I'm looking forward to reading other members' choices!! Thank you!cheers cheers

I'd so lo~ove him to skate Supermassive Black Hole ^^ The piece from the Fifth Element is nice, too, but I can't actually imagine him skating this...yet ('yet' is for that I couldn't imagine him skating La Strada back in 2008 either *lol*). I personally would love if he took smth of Yoshida Brothers ))

Thank you for telling about the jazz, miyu!

As for selecting music for Daisuke's new programs, it is not easy. I think I need more time, and I'm not even sure I can come up with anything at all. No

Both Daisuke's last season's programs were _entertaining_ in nature. And it seems people love to be entertained. Daisuke's Cyber Swan was entertaining too.

Of the well-known skaters, Kurt Browning has gone that route too (I'm not a fan, but I know he's very popular).

I can't possibly know what Daisuke's goal is as an artist. If he tries something entirely new, there's no guarantees he'll repeat his last season success, if he doesn't, someone else will present something fresh and new, and will be remembered for that.

I don't know. There is a lot of variety in jazz, I'm curious reg his final choice. I also wonder who is going to choreograph that for him. Question

Hi guys!

I read my post again and it seemed I just posted my favorite songs list. Sorry!!

Euphoria wrote:

Yah, this song was the one which came to mind first. I think Supermassive Black Hole will suit his hot style.

Euphoria wrote:

Wow, how do you know Yoshida Brothers? They are famous in overseas??
Dai-chan said he considered Japanese traditional music, too. So Yoshida Brothers would be a possible choice. Do you have a certain Yoshida Brothers's song you want Dai-can to skate? I don't know well about them.
How about Kodo? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kI4Mqb5_jJU

You are right. People will want to see a more entertaining program from him. It would be difficult….. Though he could create something new beyond our imagination with a good choreographer, as he said he wanted to try new genre.

hsuhs wrote:

Oh, yes. I think Shae-Lynn is good at jazz. Kenji also talked about jazz with Dai-chan before in a figure skating magazine.

Yep, and he's light and solid and fast enough to be able to keep up with the frame and the tempo of the song ^^

miyu wrote:

Well, I love japanese music very much (j-rock in particular) so it was inevitable to encounter Yoshida Brothers ))
I was thinking about Storm. Kodo is so cool! But it's quite a risk to skate something like this ^-^' So maybe it would be more fitting to make some kind of mix of two or three songs where Kodo will be the intro. And the outro, for that matter ))

Reed & Reed used Kodo for their OD this past season. And.... I'm almost afraid to ask, but... does their dance look authentic to you, miyu? Or is it just a collection of silly stereotypes? Embarassed silent

Because I really liked the music, I liked the dance, liked the choreo and I liked the dancers (who are just 2nd tier dancers at this point of their career) Embarassed Shocked pale

Great idea!! Like Kodo - Yoshida Brothers - Kodo, right?
Considering 2010 Tokyo Worlds, I really think something Japanese could be a good choice. Wink

I think it's good, I like it, hsuhs. Wink Wink What I don't like is their costumes. Laughing But as for the choreography, it's nice. Entertaining and not cheap imitation. I much much prefer Reeds' program to Shibutanis'. I read somewhere Reeds and Morozov took classes of Japanese Dancing to choreograph and perform this program.

BTW, is this Kodo music is the same which Stojko used in 2002 Olympics? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyRUyRVMMLk

Dai-chan has a friend (? Rolling Eyes ) who is a famous Kabuki actor. (I don't think they are so close, but I read a news after the olympic that the Kabuki actor said he wanted to go for a drink with Dai-chan to celebrate.) Probably he can help Dai-chan a little when he does Japanese program. Cool

This probably explains it. So the team did do research.

Stojko's ISU bio says he used Lion (from the album The Best of Kodo) by Kodo. I definitely recognize pieces of it in Reeds' routine, but I think they used a different arrangement.

It would be so great if Daisuke brought the house down with a national themed program in Tokyo, in 2011 cheers bounce king

I love Jazz!

Can not wait to see his Jazzy, sassy move choreographed by Shae-Lynne. It will be another masterpiece without doubt.

What about "As time goes by."
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOA7EzEoPW0&feature=related

I found out this music from "Casablanca " was already used by Kurt in 1994 Olympic. And amazing thing is that he combined this music with "La stranda" Dont' you think it is a fate that Dai skates to this?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2SxtqO

Enjoy.

Hmmmm I personally adore this piece of jazz, but I don't think it'll fit Daisuke too much if he's looking for something with a similar feel to La Strada like what hsuhs said earlier.

Take Five - Dave Brubeck: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwNrmYRiX_o

I think Jeffery Buttle used this for a short program before...?

EDIT:
Fly Me To The Moon - Julie London: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MeLVCeErypY

Just something else I adore. Embarassed

Man I listen to old stuff.

Hmmm...
It's tough!!! silent
Anyone else have suggestions?

EDIT:
More Dave Brubeck Quartet?

They had an album called Jazz Impressions of Japan.

1."Tokyo Traffic" 5:52
2."Rising Sun" 4:42
3."Toki's Theme" 2:10
4."Fujiyama" 5:05
5."Zen Is When" (Bud Freeman/Leon Pober)2:53
6."The City Is Crying" 6:02
7."Osaka Blues" 5:10
8."Koto Song" 3:02

I'd like to think this would suit Daisuke's idea of having both jazz and a Japanese sort of style. But for a more 'entertainment' oriented piece, I think Toki's Theme would be best?

Well, since it needs to be jazz and also be suitable for figure skating, here's a song that does sound pretty, written in 1993, called Cantaloop:

I'd like to see Daisuke skating to Keiko Matsui, maybe Ruins of Sonora. Her music is very expressive. But actually I can't imagine him skating this...

Ruins of Sonora sounds good, but too much lyric (I mean he has already his Luv letter).
May be in next season he`d choose something more modern, powerful and incendiary.
J-rock why not? Very Happy

Thank you for sharing your ideas, guys!! I enjoyed a loot!

Especially I like these.

Toki's Theme by Dave Brubeck (blacksugarbomb)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eX1KO8MndYI

Cantaloop by US3 (hushs)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHTP_adoeZE


Wow, jazz is COOL. I don't know that!

And the cotton club sound track is a great idea! Thanks, Lil.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJfcE-c1vRk

BTW, the swing is a part of jazz? Then how about this? (It's not so cool as Toki's Theme, thug. Maybe it will suit Ryan Bradley well. )

According to Wikipedia, the swing is a type of jazz. Smile
(But Wiki isn't really reliable nowadays, so I might be wrong)

I've also been wondering whether Big band music would be suitable.
Big band is an ensemble associated with playing jazz music rather than being a type of jazz, so I think it counts too?

Sing, Sing, Sing - Benny Goodman: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhyhP_5VfKM

Or jazz fusion anyone? Razz
