It should come as no great surprise that I’m a fan of masterful cello playing. One of my favorite concerts that I reviewed was when Zuill Bailey played with the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra. You can tell by watching him play that he doesn’t just play the music, he feels it.
I’m a sucker, especially, when cello lends a twist to more contemporary music, which is why I love 2Cellos. I somehow missed this video when it came out a few months ago, but it had me dancing. Plus (getting political for just a second, sorry), “Livin’ on a Prayer” is how a lot of us feel right now while waiting for enough people to get over their fear of needles, their stubbornness, or their insane political allegiance and get vaccinated.
