The Goat Rodeo Sessions

Posted on November 14, 2011 by aks

Following one more connection: Bach > Chris Thile > The Goat Rodeo?

This is an intense performance — it starts out pretty mellow but really builds up to an amazing jam session.  It must be incredible to be a part of playing music like this. The musicians seem to be concentrating really hard and there are a couple moments where you see a smile and it looks like they know something special is happening.

I am floored by their ability to concentrate and like to come back to this video when I need the inspiration to focus on my work.

Here is a link to this song directly on Yo-Yo Ma’s website if this video doesn’t play.

Here & Heaven
Musicians:  Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer, Stuart Duncan, Chris Thile, Aoife O’Donovan
