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.

Ad hominem is fine so long as it is accompanied with an argument, as opposed to being confused for an argument. In the latter case, deletion will follow.
