I just heard a fantastic piece of music

They were doing an interview on Weekend Edition. It was at the end of the first two hours. The interview was Jeff Beck and all the styles of music he’s been doing over the years. Whether it was with the, “Yard Birds,'” or with his own group he’s been impressing everyone for years. I saw him many years ago at the Universal Amphitheater his second guitar that night was the guitarist that Michael Jackson used, she’s a dream with strings. Today's piece that brought tears to my eyes before the interviewer started talking to Beck about what he was doing. You may remember the movie where justice is served the best it can when your dealing with spies. The movie, “Sum of All Fears.” It’s at the end of the movie where the evil villain gets his due when he pushed in the cigarette lighter to light his cigar. The music, Poverati singing a powerful piece perfectly selected by the people making the movie. “Nessun Dorma” is the name of the piece he played.  The switch back to the American and Russian presidents signing a arms treaty. A victory for the free would against terrorist. Beck plays the vocal part with his guitar, what other instrument would he use. He said the first time he played it before an audience the people with cheat at every line, this is before the orchestra came in.  Call me emotional but I’ve always became choked up with music that couldn’t be any better, perfection, whether it’s a soloist or a full orchestra, when art it so good, every one should see how special it is, just that it is. For me, it’s a quest for excellence whether it’s music, videos or creations made by an artist or an engineer there it times you see or hear excellences. It don’t happen every day for me but that one special time that I’m moved I’ll feel that it can’t get any better. Let’s not forget the rest of the album where he plays guitar in the place of Judy Garland in Some Where over the Rainbow from the Wizard of Oz. Jeff's new album is going to be a real treat.
