nyco. yes.
sophia over sitti.
sitti sings well but for me, doesn't get into bossa jiggy that much.
Bossa is like teleporting to a distant land, while sitti is just, err, singing.

where's the soul, baby? :mrgreen:

When i was younger, in my 20's, my purpose was to dazzle with prestidigitation.

Now, i'm in my 30's and my intent is to delve into true magic.

It's my humble opinion that this involves singing of who you are.

Sitti sings of who she is.

That's why I, for one, respect her.

Yes, she has a ways to go, as do we all but all things considered, Sitti is not just "some chick". I consider her an artist worthy of salute.

As my esteemed father is fond of saying, ten million Elvis fans can't be wrong.

Mishka's now in London. She's been based there for almost a year now.

She had a pretty huge farewell concert before she left. And she threw a despedida party at her house before she left, too.

Re Sitti: agreed. She's also a beautiful human being. No diva-ish-ness whatsoever. Very impressive.

Mishka Adams. Now there's a singer. She's been in England with her boyfriend Ariz Guinto studying  jazz, doing gigs, and making a 2nd album apparently.

OT: Sir! Borrowed your CD from a friend. Nice thing you got going in the disc, sir! May mga kopya pa ba kayo? He wasn't able to have it autographed by you so I'll bring it with me when I buy from you.

Good to know that Sitti has that attitude towards her music. From someone who's into the Philippine Jazz vein your word is close to gospel.

I'm not really a fan of her singing but with the kind of mindset she has and knowing what she wants she'll go beyond wherever she is right now in her music and her life as an artist.

Like the Fight Science feature on the National Geographic channel said, no matter how strong or fast a warrior is, it is still the heart of the warrior that counts.

Mabuhay si Ms. Sitti!  :-)

Sorry, Frogfunk, naubusan na po kami ng kopya ng Solo. Sold out na po, early this year pa lang.

Will let you know when we reprint/repress.

She commercialized Bossa Nova that's just about it but as we all know as artists, dami pa nyang kakaining bigas. Through her I think we can now consider Bossa Nova as pop.

Indieboy,

Opo, nagtrabaho po ako bilang Communications Trainer ng ilang buwan sa Clientlogic.

It kinda, well... sucked. (But it seemed like a good idea at the time.)

So I'm now back to being a full-time musician.

:-)

Opo, will let y'all know if/when we've reprinted my Solo cd.

Ever since the fall of the acoustic phenomenon, bespectacled yuppie hipsters have been looking for a replacement.

I think i remember you guys - "No excuse for a name" from Clientlogic? Well you guys won that fair and square, and all the judges (raims, cooky, jett, kedy, etc.) thought so. Maybe you should start a "call center/BPO band" thread in another forum. I honestly don't know where you guys would find the time to rehearse and gig given shifting. I spent a year in purgatory at Accenture BPO on a night shift schedule and it just zapped my social life and was glad to escape with my sanity intact.  Anyway this is getting way off topic, best to move this to another thread/forum :)

Yes, I have always wondered what happened to those bands, especially the winner.  Better start another thread asap, Jim.

Well, her looks certainly don't hurt. :-)

In fact...

Saw her at Mall of Asia yesterday, at the Burn magazine event. And boy, she was exceptionally gorgeous yesterday!

As in, stunning.

I just read her article again during my flight onboard Cebu Pacific. From her responses she's really in touch with her music. And it won't be a mystery kung natigil sandali ang tibok ng puso ni Sir Aya. E-hehehehe!  :-D

Hmmm, maybe I should transfer this thread to the pop forum? I just listened to some Sitti tunes today and still can't find a smidgen of jazz in the performances. :)

I agree. As what was previously mentioned, it's all because of her packageing, her looks and probably her contacts. Artistically wala akong makita. This is absolutely just pure commercialism so definetely it'll just fall to the "pop" category. IMHO sana nga nag-variety na lang sya o kaya acoustic or maybe R&B pwede rin kasi. Sa Bossa Nova or sa Jazz in general di pagandahan or kelangan cute ka. Look at Miles Davis or Thelonius Monk o kaya Carmen McRae, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn or Betty Carter. Do they look cute to you guys? They're not appealing to me in any way physically but these people....they're pure talent. Now that's genuine and authentic jazz and that's the reason why these people became immortals.

Just a thought, after 10 or say 20 years kung kulubot at losyang na si Sitti....kilala pa kaya sya? Kasi si Ella di ko na inabot ng buhay pero all I can say is that.... :roll:uhmmmn...ewan ko basta in-love ako sa pagkanta nya.
