Thirsty? Peter & Friends Offer Some Water To Drink

Once again, TGL was on the sceen for another in a series of shows for the Peter Martin Music: LIVE! concert series with a live webcast.  This show featured Peter Martin on piano, Romero Lubambo on guitar, Erin Bode with vocals, and Christopher Thomas on the bass.

For the second to last song of the night, the band performed the Antonio Carlos Jobim bossa nova classic "Agua De Beber" (in English - Water To Drink). 

We plan on posting more video from this concert from our main camera later.  But if you'd like to check out a full run through of the show as we broadcast it, just click here and you should be able to see the entire, uncut, wonderful 2 hour performance.  Enjoy!!


From The U. City Loop To The Global Loop

Today we have on our live stream some great HD video of sunrises and sets from locations around the world accompanied by great, world-class music made by people with a connection to University City, Missouri, USA.

The whole thing is on a 2 hour loop, so feel free to get the player started below, get the music and video running, and then let it go all day and listen in the background.  (And look at the pretty pictures when you need a break from your work...)

A list of the songs, U. City artists, and links to them are below the player. Take a look!

Putting Those Sunrises To Good Use

Here's another video of a sunrise sped up a bit. But this time it's only part of a whole video.  We'll be streaming the entire 2 hours of this compilation of music by people from University City, Missouri, USA paired with some sunrise and skyline videos from 3 countries and 5 cities.

So here's a taste for you early followers of The Global Loop.  2 songs here..The 1984 U. City High School Jazz Band with "Sweet Georgia Brown", and Peter Martin, Jeremy Davenport, and Christopher Thomas playing "Little Willie Leaps" live during our webcast of the Peter Martin Music concert "The Reunion" on April 2, 2010. More is coming soon and you might be able to get a copy for yourself as well).



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.




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!!
