Papa loves mambo
Mama loves mambo
Look at ’em sway with it
Gettin’ so gay with it
Shoutin’ “olay” with it, wow

Papa loves mambo
Mama loves mambo
Papa does great with it
Swings like a gate with it
He loses weight with it, now

He goes to, she goes fro
He goes fast, she goes slow
He goes left ‘n’ she goes right

Papa’s lookin’ for Mama
But mama is nowhere in sight

Papa loves mambo
Mama loves mambo
Havin’ their fling again
Younger than spring again
Feelin’ that zing again, wow

Papa loves mambo
Mama loves mambo
Don’t let her rumba and don’t let her samba
‘Cause Papa loves Mama tonight

Papa loves mambo
Mama loves mambo

He goes to, she goes fro
He goes fast, she goes slow
He goes left ‘n’ she goes right
Papa’s lookin’ for Mama
But Mama is nowhere in sight

Papa loves mambo
Mama loves mambo
Havin’ their fling again
Younger than Spring again
Feelin’ that zing again, wow

Papa loves mambo
Mambo Papa
Mambo Mama
(Don’t let her rumba and don’t let her samba)
‘Cause Papa
Loves a mambo tonight



I-am vazut data trecuta cand au fost in tara si am fost impresionat. O trupa numeroasa de dansatori din Georgia, care imbina momentele acrobatice uimitoare cu elementele de show gen Michael Flatley si eleganta baletului rus, cei de la Samaia au mereu cate o surpriza, cum a fost vocea unica a tinerei Marika Tkhelidze.
Spectacolul lor va avea pe 18 noiembrie, tot la Sala Palatului.

L-am vazut cu totul intamplator intr-un concert la Sala Radio si pana atunci habar nu aveam ca exista solo-uri de contrabas. De altfel, acest instrument mare cat un sifonier, pe corzile caruia ca sa inveti sa canti trebuie mai intai sa-ti sangereze degetele, nu e lasat “sa vorbeasca” nici macar in muzica clasica. Doar jazzul, cu exuberanta lui proverbiala si cu indiferenta fata de reguli si canoane, l-a scos in fata si l-a lasat sa cutreiere gama. Leonard Ciuciu era cel mai mare contrabasist din muzica lautareasca, dar daca s-ar fi nascut pe Mississippi probabil ca in loc sa ii tina isonul lui Ionica Minune si lui George Udila, ar fi cantat cu Duke Ellington. “Sa ii tina isonul”…. ce expresie nedreapta, am folosit-o si eu spontan pentru ca asta e ideea noastra despre rolul contrabasului intr-o orchestra. Dupa cum v-am spus, Leonard era unul dintre putinii artisti capabili sa sustina un solo consistent, de cateva minute, la finalul caruia sala sa izbucneasca in aplauze, chiar inainte ca partitura intregii formatii sa se fi sfarsit. Avea omul asta o fantezie si o exuberanta cat zece Blues Brothers la un loc. O verva si o creativitate de care nu l-ai fi crezut capabil vazandu-i fizicul de Piedone. Ciupea corzile frenetic, pana cand contrabasul ii aluneca intr-o parte ca si cum ar fi dat sa fuga, il tragea la loc intr-o secunda fara sa piarda vreun acord si improvizatia curgea frenetic spre hazul privitorilor care nici ei nu indrazneau sa rada de teama sa nu piarda o farama de spectacol. Acum am aflat ca era si printre putinii instrumentisti care puteau manui si o chitara bass cu 7 corzi.
Dupa ce l-am auzit am trait cu speranta ca intr-o buna zi cineva va repara nedreptatea si il va prezenta pe acest artist al improvizatiei publicului larg. Timpul, vorba lui Preda, nu a mai avut rabdare. Am cautat pe Youtube ceva ca exemplificare, dar nimic din ce am gasit nu mi s-a parut ca il prezinta in modul meritat. Asa ca va trebui sa ma credeti pe cuvant: Leonard Ciuciu a fost pentru contrabas ceea ce a fost Toni Iordache (unchiul sau) pentru tambal.

Uneori nu apuci sa spui nici macar asta…

Music: Nat King Cole, lyrics: Albert Beach

Goodbye, no use leading with our chins
This is where our story ends
Never lovers, ever friends
Goodbye, let our hearts call it a day

But before you walk away
I sincerely want to say
I wish you bluebirds in the spring
To give your heart a song to sing
And then a kiss, but more than this
I wish you love

And in july a lemonade
To cool you in some leafy glade
I wish you health
But more than wealth
I wish you love

My breaking heart and I agree
That you and I could never be
So with my best
My very best
I set you free
I wish you shelter from the storm
A cozy fire to keep you warm
But most of all when snowflakes fall
I wish you love



When I was young I was the nicest guy I knew
I thought I was the chosen one
But time went by and I found out a thing or two
My shine wore off as time wore on
I thought that I was living out the perfect life
But in the lonely hours when the truth begins to bite
I thought about the times when I turned my back & stalled
I ain’t no nice guy after all

When I was young I was the only game in town
I thought I had it down for sure,
But time went by and I was lost in what I found
The reasons blurred, the way unsure
I thought that I was living life the only way
But as I saw that life was more than day to day
I turned around, I read the writing on the wall

I ain’t no nice guy after all
I ain’t no nice guy after all

In all the years you spend between your birth and death
You know there’s lots of times when you should have saved your breath
It comes as quite a shock when that trip leads to a fall

I ain’t no nice guy after all
I ain’t no nice guy after all

When I was young I was the nicest guy I knew
I thought I was the chosen one
But time went by and I found out a thing or two
My shine wore off as time wore on
I thought that I was living out the perfect life
But in the lonely hours that the truth begins to bite
I turned around I read the writing on the wall
I ain’t no nice guy after all
I ain’t no nice guy after all



It’s a heartache
Nothing but a heartache

Hits you when it’s too late
Hits you when you’re down
It’s a fool’s game

Nothing but a fool’s game
Standing in the cold rain

Feeling like a clown.

It’s a heartache

Nothing but a heartache.
Love him till your arms break

Then he lets you down.
It ain’t right with love to share
When you find he doesn’t care for you.
It ain’t wise to need someone
As much as I depended on you.

It’s a heartache
Nothing but a heartache

Hits you when it’s too late

It ain’t r’ight with love to share

Oh it’s a heartache

Nothing but a heartache.
Love him till your arms break

Then he let’s you down
It’s a fool’s game

Standing in the cold rain

Feeling like a clown.

It’s a heartache
Love him till your arms break
Then he let’s you down
It’s a heartache



La revedere, iubito, a fost un vis frumos
L-am scris impreuna cu un creion gros
La revedere, frumoaso, a fost ceva trist
Pe care sa-l iei cu tine-n Paradis
La revedere,ti-am spus,hai pleaca odata
Nu mai privi in urma, ce a fost este soarta
Stiai ca asa se va intampla
Noi doi poate vom disparea
La revedere, mai fato, tu chiar nu intelegi?
Au fost niste clipe te rog sa le negi
Au fost niste vise care au disparut
Da-le-napoi, au fost doar un imprumut

Asta ne este viata si moartea
Un etern sfarsit si inceput
De lumi si de morti si de vieti mi-e totuna
Caci lumea e un etern nesfarsit

Intelege odata ca nu e vina ta
Intelege, mai fato, ca vreau altceva
Intelege ca viata mai joaca si feste
Intelege ca nu-i, chiar nu-i o poveste

Asta ne este viata si moartea
Un etern sfarsit si inceput
De lumi si de morti si de vieti mi-e totuna
Caci lumea e un etern nesfarsit

Priveste-mi ochii, ce mult i-ai iubit
Priveste-mi sufletul, ce l-ai ocolit
Priveste-ti viata si spune-mi: are rost?
Sa fii cu mine fara folos
Priveste minciuna, frumoasa la inceput,
Arunc-o in ghena si zi “a disparut”
Arunca-ti viata spre altul mai bun
Care-o fi ala sa-l prefac in scrum

Asta ne este viata si moartea
Un etern sfarsit si inceput
De lumi si de morti si de vieti mi-e totuna
Caci lumea e un etern nesfarsit

Nu-ti cere viata inapoi cum a fost
Nu-ti cere iubirea, nu are rost
Priveste inainte si uraste ce vezi
Caci uite cel nou iti va spune sa pleci

Asta ne este viata si moartea
Un etern sfarsit si inceput
De lumi si de morti si de vieti mi-e totuna
Caci lumea e un etern nesfarsit



Soprana Leontina Vaduva, fiica doamnei Maria Ciobanu, interpretand melodia culeasa de Anton Pann si interpretata anterior de Maria Tanase.

 
Pana cand nu te iubeam, dorule,
Unde ma culcam dormeam, dorule,
Dar acum ca te iubesc, dorule,
Nu pot sa ma odihnesc, dorule.

Ies din casa sa ma duc, dorule,
Nu stiu incotro s-apuc, dorule,
Saraca inima mea, dorule,
De la tin’ nu se mai ia, dorule.



Varianta audio editata:

Dupa furtuna se face senin,
De incantare mi-e sufletul plin,
Panzele negre se spala pe rand, in gand
Chiar daca mi-a fost greu,
Stiu bine ce-i al meu si care-i calea mea.

Chiar daca mi-a fost greu,
Stiu bine ce vreau eu sa fac cu viata
Poarta din inima s-a redeschis,
Am revenit la lumina si vis,
De incantare mi-e sufletul plin, prea plin!
Chiar daca mi-a fost greu,
Stiu bine ce-i al meu si care-i calea mea.
Chiar daca mi-a fost greu,
Stiu bine ce vreau eu sa fac cu viata mea!

Dupa furtina se face senin,
Vantul mi-aduce mireasma de crin,
De stralucire mi-e suletul plin, prea plin!
Chiar daca mi-a fost greu,
Stiu bine ce-i al meu si care-i calea mea.
Chiar daca mi-a fost greu,
Stiu bine ce vreau eu sa fac cu viata mea!



Movin to the country gonna eat a lot of peaches
Im movin to the country Im gonna eat me a lot of peaches
Im movin to the country Im gonna eat a lot of peaches
Movin to the country Im gonna eat a lot of peaches
Peaches come from a can they were put there by a man
In a factory downtown
If I had my little way Id eat peaches everyday
Sun soakin bulges in the shade

Movin to the country Im gonna eat a lot of peaches
Movin to the country Im gonna eat a lot of peaches
Im movin to the country gonna eat a lot of peaches
Movin to the country gonna eat a lot of peaches

I took a little nap where the roots all twist
Squished a rotten peach in my fist
And dreamed about you woman
I poked my finger down inside makin a little room for a ant to hide
Natures candy in my hand or can or a pie

Millions of peaches peaches for me
Millions of peaches peaches for free
Millions of peaches peaches for me
Millions of peaches peaches for free
