My Top-5 Picks in Order
I’m certain the jazz and funk-filled spirit of @miguelblanco is very much with me in placing this classic @shookriya rendition at the top of this week’s list._
The multi-instrument performances and harmonies here are spectacular! I love the way @themusiclover captured much of the detailed nuance of this incredible Beatles classic!
Our brother Wilins has embarked upon a new chapter in life. With it, I hope the company he encounters along the way is as rich, pleasurable, intense, and gratifying as the song he shares with us here, his original composition, “Bad Company!”
What a pleasant surprise! We haven’t heard from @chaifm for a very long time – then out of nowhere, like magic, she suddenly appears and graces us with her splendid musical work in progress, “Quiet Glory.” Check the post for details on her upcoming (Open-Mic inspired) EP, “Elderflower Sea!”
Mayneth caps this week’s list with a rather touching and heartfelt cover. The emotion and lyrical content within translate well in closing the week in loving dedication to our friend and brother, Miguel Blanco.
Thank you for reviewing my selections for this week’s Open-Mic contest. If you find this content I’ve curated entertaining and of value to you, then please consider up-voting and/or re-steeming it.
