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!!

News Brief: The Final Flight of The Space Shuttle "Discovery"

This is the 2nd time this year that TGL has headed Kennedy Space Center in central Florida in the United States to try to witness the launch of the final flight of the Space Shuttle Discovery.  The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is closing out the era of the space shuttle that began flying into space back in April of 1981.  The original final launch date for the shuttle Discovery was back in mid-September.  However, the launch was moved 6 weeks later for technical reasons.

We headed back to Florida to try to catch it again for TGL followers, but...

 

As of this posting, the launch is now due to happen on Thursday, November 4th in the afternoon.  But the launch window of this shuttle so that it can meet up with the International Space Station (ISS) and deliver more crew members will only last 2 more days.  If the launch is delay beyond that, then the next opportunity for Discovery to meet the ISS will be in December.  Check back to us to find out when the Disovery makes it off the ground and on orbit.

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!
