Beautiful Olivia

I remember the first time I saw Olivia Harrison and it’s seem it was like yesterday… It was when I first saw the videoclip ”Real Love ”from The Fab Four on tv.

 

I saw how lovingly she was looking at her husband. The kindness of this look was a beautiful thing to witness.

To me, Olivia is a warrior. A warrior of her husband’s legacy. A warrior of bringing light into the hearts of many people with The Material World Foundation.

I really admire her humility. If you haven’t had the chance to watch ”The Leaving in a Material World” documentary she co-produced with Martin Scorsese, it really is one of the best documentaries you will see. Especially if you are a fan of George Harrison or even if you are a fan of watching documentaries.

She was blunt but delicate. There is no bullshit with Olivia and I love it when someone doesn’t take any crap. In 1999, she was clearly was a fearless warrior when that horrible home invasion happened.

This week, the Thursday Maestro goes to this wonderful lady who is contributing, in her own way, to making the world a better place with her philanthropy, her spirituality, and her gentle soul.

 

 

Peace.

So Far, So Good

I couldn’t wait the six months anniversary of The Chronicle to do this little video.

This spring has been very enlightening and new collaborations and friendship has been made.

The best is yet to come for The C. Let’s continue to have fun and to discover new bands, new artists, talking about the world of Pop Culture, living and breathing our passion for sports ( yesss Golden States are the champs).

Ok back to the main topic. Here a nice throwback spring moment.

Enjoy!

 

Maestro Martin

This week Chronicle Maestro is a man that I deeply admire and I fell in love with his work at the end of the year 2006.

He is his father son and he is his own man with a mission. He want us as music lovers to focus on the sound of a recording record with a better musically ears with Sonos.

Giles Martin Sonos

He made us fall in love all over again with Sgt. Pepper remastering is a masterpiece. With his father, he create one of the most visceral, ethereal and imaginative soundtrack of all time for one of the best show I saw in my life. All you need is LOVE..

Father and Son

Giles Martin have the passion for create and orchestrating in the studio music that will be the soundtrack of our lives. And he   want us to hear music as he does hear it at the studio.

I always been very fascinated by the process of making a record. My father had a record shop when I was really young.

At home, my brother and I would spend so many times listening and analyzing a song. A passion was born from the get go.

Always near our favorite instrument

Like me, Giles on a very different scale but parallel learn from the master. Sir George Martin couldn’t be a better professor for Giles and a mentor.

They had such a beautiful father and son chemistry on and off the studio.

I wish one day I could sit down and see this Maestro in action in his musical laboratory.

Giles and Paul

Here come the son!

Thank you Giles.

50 ans avec le Sergent Pepper

Hier vu l’anniversaire de cet album mythique de la culture pop.

Sgt Pepper

Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band pour certains fut l’album qui a déterminé une nouvelle ère musicale.

À mon humble avis, autant que je considère que c’est un très bon album mais pour moi, ça toujours Revolver et Rubber Soul qui seront les albums qui nous ont averti que le meilleur serait à venir.

Abstraction de cette paranthèse, l’idée de Paul de créer un groupe qui ne sont pas les Beatles fut une idée du génie à l’époque.

The band

Within You Whitout You me fait toujours rêver.

George H. and his sitar

La sitar est exquise et les violons également. Un classique! La passion de George se ressent pour ce beau instrument qui est la sitar.

While is Sitar Gently Weeps

A Day In a Life est à mon avis la meilleure chanson de John Lennon. I heard the news today oh boy… Chapeau à George Martin pour la production et l’orchestration de ce chef d’œuvre.

Maestro Martin and Sir Lennon

Indémodable, indestructible et indispensable comme album pour tous les mélomanes de ce monde.
