Sílvia Pérez Cruz: “Veinte años”

HT: Emily W.

Sílvia Pérez Cruz is a Spanish singer who my daughter likes very much. Indeed, the photo for this post (which is somewhere on the home page) is the two of them after Cruz’s recent performance in New York City.

The song in the video is called “Veinte años,” which even I know means “Twenty Years.” I think my daughter said that the guitar player is Cruz’s dad. If so, this is a real father/daughter post. Here are the lyrics to the song.

I like the song very much. The idea of just starting to perform in the middle of a restaurant while life goes on around you is great — and very nicely recorded here. I wouldn’t suggest doing this in New York City, but you never know. It might work out there, too.

Reading Music

The stories of the great bands and musicians are fascinating. Musicians as a group are brilliant, but often troubled. The combination of creativity and drama makes for great reading.

Here are some books to check out.

Duke Ellington brought class, sophistication and style to jazz which, until that point, was proudly unpolished and raucous. His story is profound. The author, Terry Teachout, also wrote "Pops," the acclaimed bio of Louis Armstrong. Click here or on the image.

The Grateful Dead don't get enough credit for the profound nature of its lyrics. Many of the band's songs are driven by a deep and literate Americana ("I'm Uncle Sam/That's who I am/Been hidin' out/In a rock and roll band" and "Majordomo Billy Bojangles/Sit down and have a drink with me/What's this about Alabama/Keeps comin' back to me?").

David Dodd's exhaustive study tells the story, song by song. Click here or on the image.
