As a musician I’ve been there. The beers flowing, a warm breeze rolls through like a blanket over a sleeping child, and all is right with the world. Everything clicks, connects, and the senses mingle releasing one’s thoughts from past and future. That moment and that night, the next note wrong or right, are all that matter. People join in as new friends of the song. Everyone’s banging or tapping something regardless of if they can play. The rhythms right and the Jam-sesh is on.
For me this Jam-session video is the epitome of that end of summer vibe. I know the summer isn’t over yet but a Friday in august gives me that feel. I did some research on the place where this video takes place. It’s pretty much my heaven. It is so epic that it requires its own post which I intend to do ASAP. I actually need time to consider whether or not I should reveal this precious gem’s location. I don’t want my heavenly paradise crowded up with tourists now do I. Hmmm… on second thought I’d be a tourist as well. But then again I could always call the universal law of “Finders Keepers.” I’m in a good mood though so lets see what happens.
The video features, as the title illustrates, Dopeness, Bose, and QN. I’ve dabbled with a bunch of their stuff and find most of it to have a killer style. However, I’m no expert in their bodies of work. I’m not sure who the musicians are in the video but it really doesn’t matter. They hit that flow that usually comes around when no one has a camera and the only time the jam will ever be heard is the first and last time its played.
Thank 神様 someone had a camera.
In the background of this video you’ll see U-zhaan, a world renowned Tabla player who studied and lived in India.
My favorite part of the entire video, besides everything, is the clearly drunk girl yelling in reply ” 楽しい、楽しい” at 2:03.
Just another piece of JP gomi.
