Peter Cincotti... oh boy!!!


Getting ready to blog away through the night. While I still can…

All of the sudden – the TV is on – music and musicians on my favourite channel (2:), as I don't watch any other garbage, public or private. I take a quick look, and I see New York City. I begin to get interested, but I go on blogging anyway, reading Minge's comments, I guess. Then a voice – quite a voice – compels me to look again at the TV screen…

O my God!!! A rather handsome young man – some will call him a boy – is sitting at the piano and singing marvellously «I love Paris»… I love Paris too, and that song gives me goose skin… I'm mesmerized. Meanwhile the internet connection has fallen down again, but I don't even notice. I keep on gazing at the screen – okay, at the man too, absolutely – and turn the sound clearly louder, though it's a little bit late already.

The show goes on, and Peter Cincotti goes on singing beautiful songs, most of them being that kind of melodic jazz I like so much. Hmmm… Close to the end he presents a song he himself composed – like others he had sung before – and which gives the title to his latest album (photo) – I guess it's his latest: «On The Moon».

Gosh, what a delicious tune, what a fantastic voice, what a powerful expression, what a great interpretation, what a delightful face, what a bright smile!
I'm sitting back in awe, thinking to myself there are still marvellous people doing marvellous things around this world. And that comforts and consoles me…

That voice and that face are still with me, now that the show is long over. Tomorrow I guess I must spend some more extra money: I'm buying that CD, oh yes I am!!!

While you still can...!?

Did you buy the CD?

RIC disse...

Yes, Minge, one of these days I shall have to go to bed at decent hours again, so that I may get up early in the morning. That's all.
For the CD I'll have to go downtown. I couldn't find it here at Belém...

The Brian disse...

Well I'm intrigued. Must hear more.

RIC disse...

Exactly! I hope we'll get to listen to him more often around here. Just btw - and to watch him as well...

Joel disse...

Hi RIC!?

Is he a crooner?!

Like Michael Bubblé?!

BTW, really not to be mean, but it's goose bumps!?

Really not to be mean just though you'd want to know!?

Night!?

Minge disse...

I saw the term goose flesh once in a novel by an American author.

Gumby disse...

as we say in there here parts, that boy ain't ugly.

RIC disse...

Well, I really don't care if it's bumps, flesh, skin, whatever... The point is everyone got what I meant! That's okay! Around here we just say «chicken's skin». And in French you can speak of «frisson». That's what I felt watching and listening to that gorgeous guy...
And today?! Well, someone has guessed whom I just watched and listened to on TV... But that's for the blog...
Thank you guys!!!

Joel disse...

Hope you know I didn't say that to be mean!?

And in French, it's chaire de poule!? lol

RIC disse...

Of course not, Joel! Are you joking? You're totally right, man!
And «frisson» can be «shiver» in English, can it not?
Hope you're okay, Joel!
