now that's what i call music: Binky Blue, the EWI and 'Wonderful World'

'Wonderful World', by Louis Armstrong, played here by 'Binky Blue' on the Akai USB EWI.

Someone, in criticism of the EWI, commented beneath this youtube vid, "Nothing can replace the sound of a real clarinet".

Well, we can also say that a real clarinet can't easily sound like the EWI either.  And both sound good, in its own way.

What matters is the beauty of the sound, and the soul and passion with which it is played.  As for 'Binky Blue', the moment i saw his face, or expression, on the video, i knew it was going to be good.  A very apt complement to the tune and sound.

This in turn encourages a ‘go with your feel’ tendency, which in itself gives rise a myriad of tendencies that go unquestioned.  Right and wrong ceases to matter, and even if something is illegal, one can still view it as society just having its own bias against it, just as it once had a ‘bias’ against homosexuality.

‘Nothing is natural.  Everything is just a matter of preference.’  That is the basic thrust of this unfortunate situation.  In fact, having a preference is in itself seen as evidence of one’s intelligence.  No attention needs to be paid to intellectuals, thinkers, philosophers, sages, religious te…
