I wonder what traditional chinese music really sounds like. Everything I found on YT was of the above variety.
Costumes? That's funny, you mean traditional clothing of the Tang or Sung Dynasty? Do we refer to the suit and tie as costumes, are jeans and a t-shirt costumes?

BTW, those pieces referenced above were played from compositions that were popular in the Imperial Courts of those Dynasties not Western or modern at all. What you could have seen is how Chinese/Taoist music influenced what we now call modern or western music, which would be more accurate. Chinese have compositions going back thousands of years. When you think of Taiko drumming as being Japanese, it actually was started in China then exported to Japan.

PS: You might enjoy this list, its not complete but a decent list all the same.

As long as you've booked us on Trans Love Airways I've got something particularly live and sweet for ya. This isn't even one of their top 10 songs in my book but I am just knocked out on many levels with this performance. First, I am amazed that the quality is so good for the time. There are ZERO mics on the drums with the possible exception of one overhead mic. As far as I can tell the only active mic is for Grace's vocal, yet the band is amazingly well balanced and I think it's because they were used to playing together, not in isolation. They were used to extremely simple setups and gear so the focus was on the song and I think it shows. Hope you like it.

I must disagree a bit. White Rabbit was a thing unto itself. Maybe that's because I know something about the pil--never mind.

I never got to see the Airplane live, but I did get to two Starship concerts.

I am an Airplane freak. That tells you all there is to know about me.

This was very nice; I cannot say if it is more authentic, but it certainly sounded like that to me (less recognizably "Western" patterns in the music).

I'm unsure with what you disagree but I suspect you will enjoy this.

Story #1 - I saw Airplane 3 times, live, with the most profound being the first which, being on the East Coast, was pretty late relative to early SF days. It was the support tour for After Bathing at Baxters which I hadn't heard yet. I was in for a huge surprise. This was especially true because the concert was in a fairly small venue at Franklin-Marshall College. Iron Butterfly opened and were superb, ending with the house lights slowly fading totally off, total darkness as the last sustained notes continued on. It was intense. The lights faded in and WOW! nobody was still onstage! Guitars leaned against amps fed back and the keyboard pedal had been strategically placed on the keys to play the chord and this was on Iron Butterfly Theme. They came back out to rabid cheers and did In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida for the encore. Yeah... it was incredible.

For many minutes after Butterfly ended I thought, "How will Airplane ever follow that tour-de-force?" but that was largely based on the songs of Surrealistic Pillow. Airplane rocked that place and by comparison had an amazing balance between Heavy and Light, that made Butterfly seem "sludgy" and two-dimensional in retrospect.


Story #2 - I bumped into the Airplane, almost literally, at The Atlantic City Pop Festival which was held at a race track so they couldn't leave right away. Instead t hey were limo'd around to some periphery "apartments" protected by a chain link fence and I walked up on my way back to the the van just as they exited the limos. I was actually shocked by how star struck I was, especially with Grace. I thought I was beyond all that, but I couldn't leave for awhile and stood at the fence just hoping for another glimpse. In a short while Grace came back out! ... and said "Hello!" (and yes, she was even hotter close up) We talked briefly and I offered her a necklace I'd made out of metal spools used as tape transports that acted like tiny memory storage drives on early Mid-Frame computers. She accepted but was less than overjoyed although she seemed a bit intrigued by what they had been. By then I'd regained some composure, wished her a "Good evening" and wandered off.

If you liked "Baxters" and in particular the communication between Casady, Kaukonen, and Dryden then I think you might just love this, especially if you hear it all. It takes awhile to really find the groove but then just like an airplane needing a long runway it leaps into the skies.

--- Outtake Part One ---

--- Outtake Part Two ---

--- Outtake Part Three ---

You won't find any of this familiar excepting that it is so obviously Airplane until the last 4 minutes of Part 2. 3 you will recognize immediately. If you like check it in odd order, Two then Three, then One. It's all instrumental blending Folky Rocky Jazzy Bluesy Improv Free Association and I think it's pretty spectacular. Maybe you will, too, being a brother freak and all
