Marketing Department, Meet Eyjafjallajökull

The best laid plans if mice and men...

I'm sure that the financially strapped Icelandic government really stressed to the Department of Tourism that they needed to reach far and wide to try to get more visitors to spend money on the Nordic island. They probably even told them to be creative in showing some of the country's unique aspects.

So I'm sure that all involved felt great at showing an ashen faced man proto-poaching himself in a hot spring at the foot of a big mountain on a New York City subway ad campaign.

Little did they know.... Oh my.

Successful Live Webcast and Great Music: Watch Some Again!

Well last week featured our very first, worldwide live broadcast of an event here at The Global Loop.  We sent our operations to St. Louis, Missouri, USA and the Sheldon Concert Hall to transmit the 2nd show in the Peter Martin Music: Live! series.  This show on April 2nd was called "The Reunion" and featured not only Peter Martin (piano),  Jeremy Davenport (vocals/trumpet), and Christopher Thomas (bass) coming back to their childhood home, but it welcomed Ulysses Owens, Jr. (drums) to play with the trio that first played music together over 25 years ago.  The show was tremendous!  You can see some of the show as transmitted live below.

But to warm you up, you should take a look and listen to a selection from the 1st show in the series when Peter invited Dianne Reeves to the Sheldon's stage.  They've performed together around the world for more than 11 years now.  Dianne won a Grammy for the soundtrack to the George Clooney directed "Good Night, and Good Luck" and Peter performed in the movie and album as well.

"One For My Baby (And One More For The Road)" closed out the movie and was performed at their show.  We here at The Global Loop produced a video of the shoot that we did for that 1st concert because we felt that this superior performance of that great night of music needed to be singled out.  Enjoy this before you settle in to last week's concert.  Comment freely below too:

Here is a replay of the first part of the live show last week.  To get to the beginning of the music, just fast forward to 4:00 and then let it run.

Now here's a second section of the Live performance.  We didn't have a fully recorded version of the whole show, but we'll have some very nice crip, produced versions of selections of this show up in the near future.

ENJOY!

The Debut Of Webcasting

We're excited to announce that beginning April 2, 2010, The Global Loop will enter the world of webcasting!

This is a big deal.  This is the first step into what this site is going to be about for the future.

We plan on broadcasting both live and prepackaged programming here on the site and making that programming available at times that are friendly to all followers of the site around the world.

You'll notice a new page on the site called "The Global Loop Live" at the top of all pages.  You can click there to see any live programming currently going on and to find out about future broadcasts.

We're proud to have as our first live webcast the 2nd concert in the Peter Martin Music: Live! series from St. Louis, Missouri, USA.  The name of this show is "The Reunion".  Peter Martin (piano) welcomes back to their hometown old classmates/bandmates Jeremy Davenport (trumpet/vocals) and Christopher Thomas (bass) as well as  Ulysses S. Owens, Jr (Drums) for what promises to be a tremendous evening of jazz at The Sheldon Concert Hall.

This is the first in what we hope is many webcasts, so we're looking to get as many people to watch as possible.  Please click here become of our page on Facebook and follow us on Twitter so that you can get updates on all programming as they happen.

We're excited about this opportunity and we're hoping all goes off smoothly.  Wish us luck and, if you aren't in the audience on Friday the 2nd, then we hope you're here online with us.

Spread the word far and wide!!

A Brief Episode...

We (MilamNYC Productions) were involved with shooting a lot of backstage/behind-the-scenes footage for jazz pianist Peter Martin and Peter Martin Music and the first in a series of concerts that Peter will be holding in St. Louis, Missouri, USA with many of the great performers that he's worked with over the years.

This is a brilliant performance from his debut show featuring Dianne Reeves, with whom he's collaborated for more than 10 years.  "One For My Baby (And One More For The Road)" was on her Grammy® Award winning soundtrack for the movie "Good Night, and Good Luck".  Dianne performed this at the end of that movie during the ending credits.  We produced this video from the footage we shot.

Just click play...sit back...and enjoy some brilliant music.

 

This was only one of more than hour's worth of great music on February 5, 2010 at The Sheldon Concert Hall in St. Louis.  Make sure you check out more of Peter's work, tours, and other interests at Peter Martin Music at petermatinmusic.com.  His next concert in his series will be with trumpeter/vocalist Jeremy Davenport on April 2, 2010.  They went to the same high school (along with The Global Loop).  This show should be a barn burner for sure!

Happy 40th Sesame Street!!!

The Global Loop just loves the Muppets and Sesame Street.  In fact, when we had a radio show back about 15 years ago, we used to start off the program for the first year or so with one of the letter songs that Sesame Street had on an album back in 1973.

Here are the songs (performances) of 4 of our favorite: C, S, J, and W.

Enjoy!!!

C Is For Cookie

J, Joe, Jeans, And His Jellybeans

Damien Walters is Out of This World

WOW!

This site is not going to become a place where we just repost interesting videos from other places, but while we're still in the "alpha" stage and making our own original content in the background, if we find something this outrageous, we're going to have to post it.

This over-the-top demo reel by gymnast Damien Walters is just too much to believe.  But since we here at The Global Loop actually do video production, we can attest to the fact there isn't any noticeable video trickery involved in this clip beyond slowing down some portions to show the complexity and true jaw-dropping skill involved in the most complicated and fast moves.

Enjoy this, spread the word, and comment away.  It's incredible!  (We need to get an interview with him...)
