GINO VANNELLI TEACHES AT THE ROCKACADEMIE IN HOLLAND...


A TEACHER FROM THE ROCKACADEMIE REPORTS WITH PICTURES...
Thanksgiving Day in the USA and a very exciting day at the Rockacademie in Holland. GINO VANNELLI teaches "Songwriting" to young students in Masterclasses this week. Also see the picture on the GINO VANNELLI home/index web page number 1.

Nederlands/Dutch : Hier is een e-mail van Jan een leraar van de Rockacademie in Nederland.

Hallo Barend en Trees, Wat een geweldige man is Gino. Zo aardig, spontaan, gedreven en charismatisch. Zijn brein stroomt continue over van ideeën.

Hij is gisteren op de Rockacademie aan het werk geweest met onze studenten Songwriting. Heel inspirerend.

Vanuit het idee een song te schrijven naar aanleiding van bijvoorbeeld een gedicht leidde hij de zoektocht naar de essentie van het verhaal en hoe dat het best te vertalen was naar sfeer, ritme, bruikbare stukken tekst en uiteindelijk melodie.

Vandaag krijgen we resultaten die studenten presenteren naar aanleiding van een opdracht.

Gino was erg onder de indruk van het nivo en flexibiliteit van onze studenten.

Hij blijkt ook geweldig piano en gitaar te spelen. Om voorbeelden te illustreren pakte hij regelmatig de gitaar of dook hij achter de piano en zong hij stukken uit eigen songs of songs van anderen. Kippenvel!! Wat een stem!! De korte soundcheck met maar een paar mensen in de ruimte voelde als een privé-concertje.

Gisteren avond zijn we gezellig wat gaan eten en hebben we wat gekletst. Deze week kan voor mij niet meer stuk. Een droom die uitgekomen is. Groetjes, Jan

Engels/English : Here is an e-mail from Jan a teacher at the Rockacademie in the Netherlands.

Hello Barend and Trees, What a great Man Gino is... So nice, so kind, so spontaneous, so devoted, so dedicated, so committed and very charismatic. His brains continuously flow over with ideas.

Yesterday, Thursday 23 November 2006, Thanksgiving Day in the USA, Gino was working and teaching our students "songwriting" at the Rockacademie in Tilburg, Holland. Very, very inspiring!

From the idea to write a song, referring for example to a poem, He led the search to the essence of the story and what's the best way or road to sphere, rhythm, useful text end at the end the melody. Today we get to see the results of an assignment Gino gave them. The students present today these results referring to this homework.

Gino was very impressed by the level and flexibility of our students. He also showed us how fantastic and great He plays the guitar and the piano. To illustrate examples He gripped the guitar many times or He jumped behind the piano and sang parts and pieces from His own songs or from songs of other artists. GOOSE-BUMPS, CHICKEN-FLASH!!! WHAT A VOICE!!!

The short soundcheck with only a few people in the room felt like a little private concert.

Yesterday evening we went out for a cosy meal and we chattered. A dream came true this week. This week was too beautiful to be true... Greetings, Jan.


Monday 20 November 2006 :
THE EDITORS (B&T) HAD AN INTERVIEW WHICH TURNED INTO A NICE CONVERSATION INCLUDING LIVE SINGING BY THE MASTER OF MUSIC: GINO VANNELLI!!!


A FRIDAY WITH NEWS LOTS OF GINO VANNELLI NEWS WHICH WE TRY TO WRITE DOWN OVERHERE...
We, (the B&T Editors) Interviewed Gino Vannelli Friday 17 November 2006 and remember that we are just amateurs and hobby interviewers / editors. We have no recording gear with us and we only have ears and brains but also a short memory but together we will write everything down we know and remember... We all know the Master can create music, good music, very good music but there is so much more in His brains and mind......... GINO VANNELLI's mind is like a wild roller coaster and than suddenly He is in another world which feeds His inspiration and His idea's... The rehearsals with Michiel Borstlap go on and on in Gino Vannelli's head which makes Him tell some parts of the duoconcert, the show is very different and powerful with complete new songs which are never ever been recorded and with a story from New York to Holland... The duoconcert includes a blues vignette in which Gino plays 3 parts. Three characters in a story about a New York tramp...

His creative urge is growing and growing, and His greediness for writing is beyond words and beyond understanding with our simple brains. The beatiful words come out of His mind, mouth and fingers like water from the tap... The editors are touched, moved and impressed and soon you all are able to enjoy this creative work of the Master of Music : GINO VANNELLI!!!

Today Gino is also the Master of teaching and He makes young students happy but also confused and anxious with his wisdom and creativity in sounds and music and composing. Gino Vannelli teaching urge is amazing and makes Gino happy...

Gino also makes art, musical art for the Tunes on Tap project, SONGREEL Short songs by GINO VANNELLI. Go to their web site and listen to Gino Vannelli's short songs, they change the songs once in a while... In this project are 8 Classic Hits, your favorite hits re-recorded at Gino's studio in Portland last six months... 7 Sound Idents (Instrumentals) and 6 New Short songs for commercials, tv shows themes, campaign themes and there must be so many destinations for this art form especially when Gino Vannelli directs and creates this art form in music!!! All the music and sounds but also the voices of the singers for this project are made of real GINO VANNELLI quality. The Dutch people want to take Gino Vannelli's material, Gino calls it material, we the editors like to call it art... The Dutch are open minded for GINO VANNELLI's music and voice and to show His thankfulness and gratefulness Gino wants to sing a few of His songs at their Christmas parties... WOW!!! Are those people lucky or not??? There gonna be some beautiful Christmasses this year, especially in Holland.

This is first hand news and came out of Gino Vannelli’s own mouth while He looked at us with his BIG brown eyes and very trustworthy face... Remember the movie we talked about a long time ago??? Gino Vannelli as an actor, YESSS it's going to happen Yes also in 2007... It looks like Gino is going to shoot in Philly for this comedy with some famous HOLLYWOOD PEOPLE LIKE Drew Barrymore, Susan Sarandon and the Husband of Demi moore... That makes it so great because many people on this planet will be able to see this movie... with The Master of Music: GINO VANNELLI and also hear Gino Vannelli's voice and music... YESSSSSSSSSSSSS there are 2 Gino Vannelli songs in this movie... this is such great and amazing news!!!

And to make your minds at ease again Gino looks great, healthy and happy, makes jokes and started singing suddenly once in a while... Gino's Wife was with us not live in person but live on the phone, soon Gino will go home for the holidays and for the love of His life!!!

We were total in shock when Gino suddenly started to sing and with shock we mean positive overwhelming shock the things we heard were just too amazing to realize at the moment we heard it. All the beautiful words Gino wrote and created will come out somehow, in a song or in a poem or in a story or in music or in a vignette... so you all can hear and enjoy it one day... Be sure of that!!!

Gino Vannelli and Michiel borstlap rehearsed 4 times a week very long days in Amsterdam, two top musicians together will give some fireworks and eats energy for sure but now there is a little rest from rehearsing because Michiel is touring in the USA and Gino Vannelli is teaching and writing in Holland... We will print the dates for these duoconcerts soon... Check out the GINO VANNELLI tour data and information web page for the right links to GINO VANNELLI tickets... It looks like Canada, Indonesia, Japan, USA, Holland, Italy...

GINO VANNELLI INTRODUCES MANY NEW SONGS INCLUDING A BLUES VIGNETTE IN WHICH GINO PLAYS 3 PARTS, THREE CHARACTERS IN A STORY ABOUT A NEW YORK TRAMP!!!

WHAT’S GINO VANNELLI DOING AND WHAT’S GOING ON IN GINO VANNELLI'S LIFE???


THE NUMBER ONE QUESTION ON THIS PLANET IS :
"WHY IS GINO VANNELLI LIVING IN HOLLAND...??? WHY???"
Why??? Why??? Only why??? Nothing else than why??? Why is the most written word in the editor's incoming e-mails, in about 10 million incoming e-mails from all over the world...... And nothing about Gino Vannelli’s superb live performance in the CBS Saterday Early show !!!??? Read our Gino Vannelli guestbook and go to the messages around 14 October 2006. We have to admit or maybe we have to confess that we deleted most of the messages because they do not belong in our Gino Vannelli guestbook because those gossip words had nothing to do with GINO VANNELLI life’s work!!! Those words belong in the paparazzi press or the gossip magazines...

Thank God there are still fans and music-lovers who were sooooo impressed by Gino Vannelli and His Band’s live performance on this very early hour in a tv studio in the middle of New York City. You can read a few messages on our Gino Vannelli CBS web page... One of the impressed people is this very excited and thrilled tv host called Russ Mitchell who is a BIG Gino Vannelli Fan and deeply loves Gino Vannelli’s music and voice, Russ made us all smile....

Gino Vannelli made His fans very nosy and curious after His appearance in the CBS Saterday early show in New York City, USA last 14 October 2006. Millions of people heard only one line and that’s :
“I am living in Holland these days”.

The gossip and rumours train started to ride around this planet...

Russ Mitchell interviewed Gino only for a few minutes but It was for millions of people shocking to hear that Gino said : “I am living in Holland these days”.

And the Barend and Trees e-mail box has been bombed with e-mails from all over this planet especially from all the States in the USA, Mexico, Japan, and Europe of course.............. The editor's e-mail server chrashed a few times so only God knows how many e-mails were lost in cyberspace...

The main word : Why ??? What’s happening ??? And a lot of private small talk and innuendo...

Gino Vannelli works in Amsterdam, Holland like He did before but is more involved in different projects now, like commercials, teaching, writing, rehearsals and auditions so Gino has to stay a little longer in Holland and like all normal people He has to sleep and eat here... Most famous people like writers, actors and actresses, painters and other artistic people get inspired in Holland for their own art.... So it’s also possible that GINO VANNELI finds His inspiration in Holland or we better write the Netherlands.....

Gino is writing in Holland. Writing many words, beautiful poetic and artistic words which He writes in total freedom... Freedom which He needs to recreate Himself............ He writes poems, lyrics, songs, music and even more masterpieces........ He writes His novel, He re-writes His “FOOL” and tries to get a poetry book published in the future.... GINO VANNELLI works very close with Michiel Borstlap a top Dutch Musician, piano-player, composer and producer. They are preparing for some duo concerts next 2007 and probably in the spring they will have created a more than superb musical show. Like a Gino Vannelli songbook. Gino and Michiel together in music clicks and kicks, it’s powerful and the Amsterdam air is filled with amazing musical notes and works of art!!! Both such talented and gifted Musicians and Composers who sing/play with such deep emotions will impresse us all next year....

They rehearse many hours and are so extremely dedicated to their music that they forget about time, life and food, they discuss music, politics and get inspired every second of the day by eachother’s words, music and talents... They work in total artistic freedom.

Gino also works and does auditions with different Dutch musicians and singers, and He makes musical art, short songs and short instrumental pieces but Gino is also creative again with His older hits and re-records 50 seconds of these hits for the advertising world. After the "PEOPLE GOTTA MOVE" project for the Dutch ANWB commercials, the adverising people are very interested in more Gino Vannelli sounds, harmonies, and of course Gino turns this kind of short music into an art form of His own...

Gino also teaches Master classes in music and composing and He is guest at Master classes on the Dutch Universities, music academies and conservatories. Gino Vannelli as a Teacher must be good, very good for the brains and hearts of the young music students. This Month Gino teaches at the Rockacademy in Tilburg. Gino is an important guest at the last and final Master Class “European Artist Manager” on 13 January 2007 at the Noorderslag in Groningen. These are Master Classes from the Dutch Rockacademie in Tilburg.

So after reading this you will understand how busy Gino is in our small country in which He lives and works for a while and do not get crazy about Gino’s Family, His Wife, His Son are both very well and supportive to Gino ‘s work, they support Him all the way and forever.... Like Gino wrote and sings :

“LOVE NEVER DIES.................”

GINO VANNELLI IN THE SUMMER TIME...


THIS AND THAT * SMALL TALK * TITTLE-TATTLE *
Gino Vannelli performed live on stage last night in Calgary, Canada and there is not one Canadian who gives us and the world news about this concert in Calgary. Sad... Sad... Sad... We and the world wants to know how the Canadian people feel about Gino Vannelli's concert and how they feel about the musicians of the band. Very simple we are all curious to read the emotions... Those needs to hear or read Gino Vannelli news are universal !!! Maybe we have to be more patient and as soon as we receive news, Gino Vannelli news, we will make a 2006 Summer in Canada web page but here is the Gino Vannelli article from the Calgary Sun dated 12 July 2006 :


Gino Vannelli plays the Coca Cola Stage July 12 - 2006
Back to the future
Rob Honzell
Calgary Sun

Black Cars may look better in the shade, but Gino Vannelli and his music deserve to be kept out of the shadows and in the spotlight.

And that’s where Calgary can find him.
On July 12, Vannelli show on the Coca-Cola stage should fit snugly in between the “blast from the past” category and the, “oh yeah, he sang that Black Cars song, this guy’s awesome!” cheer that will inevitably rise up at the Stampede.

Born in Montreal in 1952, Vannelli started his first band when he was 12.
Now in his 50s, Vannelli says his longevity has no big secret behind it.
“It’s very simple, either you love what you do, or you don’t,” he says.
He explains his love for music as similar to how people feel about a great piece of art.
“It’s the truth in beauty syndrome … you look at something, and in the end it just gives you that feeling. You can’t really explain it, but you know you like it.”
But love for music alone is not what has helped Vannelli endure more years in the music business than most of today’s top pop artists have been alive. Since he was a child — he and his brother formed the Jacksonville 5 five years before the Jackson 5 ever recorded an album — Vannelli has been an eager student of music.

“We’re all held captive to our own subconscious credo,” says Vannelli, who sums up his life as a professional artist as continually being an “apostle” of himself. If you haven’t heard Vannelli’s name in some time, it’s because his love for all music has taken him down some different roads in the past decade. From his traditional jazz albums Yonder Tree and Slow Love, released in 1995 and ’97 respectively, to his stab at classical music in 2003, Canto, the man who made it big as a pop artist has by no means been lazy. But now, after many years of exploring, Vannelli, best known for the hits I Just Wanna Stop, People Gotta Move and One Night With You, has returned to his pop roots.

“It was just time,” says Vannelli, whose latest CD, These are the Days, contains seven of his old pop hits and seven new songs. “It seemed a lot more fun to me,” says Vannelli, who didn’t want to just re-write old hits. “We are all held captive to the winds of pop … but I didn’t want to come across as a well’s gone dry kind of artist.” Which is definitely not the case with Vannelli, who says once he started writing pop songs again, found it hard to stop.

• GINO VANNELLI
Canadian pop/rock icon Gino Vannelli makes his first appearance at the Calgary Stampede, hot on the release of his long awaited new album, "These are the Days". Boasting a unique concept where seven newly recorded pop songs are showcased along with seven of Vannelli's re-mastered greatest hits.
Gino Vannelli is appearing on Wednesday, July 12, 2006 at 9:30 p.m.


This is the only article we found so we do not yet make a new web page but we still want you Gino Vannelli fans and music lovers to read this article...

Maybe more to come........

Yes on Friday 14 July 2006 there is something to share and we start creating a new web page first about Calgary and who knows more...


Thursday 6 July 2006 :

??? QUESTIONS FROM THE GINO VANNELLI FANS ???


THE EDITORS OF THIS GINO VANNELLI NEWSPAPER TRIED TO FIND THE ANSWERS TO SATISFY SOME OF THE GINO VANNELLI FANS...
QUESTION 1 : Do You Know Anything About Gino Composing a Peace Song????

ANSWER TO QUESTION 1: Gino Vannelli composed the Wounded Dove theme music.
The Wounded Dove was a TV series about peacemakers that never got off the ground for some unknown reason in Canada. Gino did write a theme for orchestra, it ended up being called
"Lacrima Luna (Tears of the Moon)" Gino Vannelli Only performed it with orchestra a few times. . .maybe you heard it with the Metropole Orchestra in Amsterdam, Holland or the Montréal Symphony in Montréal Canada.

"Lacrima Luna (Tears of the Moon)" another beautiful musical work of art created by the Master of Music : GINO VANNELLI !!!

QUESTION 2 : My question deals with Gino Vannelli's ancestry in Italy. I have read that Mr. Vannelli's grand parents are from the Campobasso district of Italy. I am a second generation Italian-American and my grandparents were from Santa Croce also located in the Campobasso district. Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated. I admire the hard work and detail of your web site. Many Thanks and best of luck, James, Boca Raton, FL.

ANSWER TO QUESTION 2: Hello goodmorning ! We cannot help you with private things, sorry ! We have no idea, we only know some of Gino's Family in these days......... Gino's Father and Mother were born in Montréal Quebec, Canada and His grandparents came from Italy to Canada. That's all we know.......... Thanks for your kind words about our Gino Vannelli web pages........ We are just amateurs and we do the best we can. Our apologies for our bad English/American writing, it's the best we can......... Best wishes to you and to your Family from Barend and Trees in Holland, the Netherlands. Ciao !

REACTION TO OUR ANSWER OF QUESTION 2: Thank you, I want to thank you so much for your response to my question. I have recently found out from a friend in Italy, Mr. Vannelli's grandparents were from two small towns in the Abruzzi region of Italy, Casacalenda and Ripabottoni. The towns are located very close to where my grandparents were born, Santa Croce di Magliano. I still have relatives living there. Interesting to know. I want to thank you again and wish you continued success on your very informative web site. James, Boca Raton, FL. USA

PS. Italian musician Tullio Pizzorno is a close friend and I see you're coverage of his associations with Mr. Vannelli and Niels Lan Doky of great interest.

A GINO VANNELLI SONG USED IN A DEBUT EPISODE OF A NEW TV SERIES IN CANADA.


CANADIAN COMEDY SERIES... A LAWYER SHOW IN TORONTO CANADA...
A comedy lawyer show without courtrooms, but with Gino Vannelli's BLACK CARS !!! Billable Hours on Showcase. And the comments in the newspapers and magazine are :

(1) : "New lawyer sitcom tries too hard."

(2) : "And while it's hard to find fault with any show that uses Gino Vannelli's Black Cars in its debut episode, some of the straight lines, sight gags and even the odd pratfall seem like they were taken directly from a Sitcoms 101 textbook."

(3) : "Canadian comedy series that tries just a little too hard to be clever."

The editor's comment : Sounds fun, actually. The producers are clever enough to use Gino Vannelli's BLACK CARS !!! BRAVO !!!


Wednesday 12 April 2006 :
DO YOU KNOW ??? DID YOU KNOW ??? THIS AND THAT !!! A LITTLE "LENTEN" TIDBIT !!! SMALL-TALK AND MORE...


GINO VANNELLI IN THE NEWS AROUND THE WORLD AND AMONG PEOPLE...
DO YOU KNOW ??? DID YOU KNOW ??? That Gino Vannelli has 50+ stalkers ??? The editors of this Gino Vannelli newspaper received this message from the USA, anonymous ofcourse, no names mentioned. We thought this is so full of humour that we had to mention this.

DO YOU KNOW ??? DID YOU KNOW ??? That Gino Vannelli can ride a horse in a very busy crowd ??? Here's the proof :
DO YOU KNOW ??? DID YOU KNOW ??? That Gino Vannelli was Grand Marshal at the Mardi Gras in New Orleans ??? This message was printed in 1977 :
Endymion Timeline 1977 Starting point for the parade was moved from DeSaix Boulevard to N. Carrollton & Canal Streets to accommodate larger crowds of spectators. Police estimated that Endymion crowds topped one million! The sold-out Extravaganza in the Rivergate hosted 7,000 guests. Theme: "It's A Small World." Grand Marshals: rock singer Gino Vannelli, actressses Penny Marshall & Cindy Williams.

DO YOU KNOW ??? DID YOU KNOW ??? That this message was printed in an Italian magazine while Gino tours the USA and Canada ??? According to this italian magazine "Sorrisi", Gino was in Sanremo at the italian music festival last week. He was accompanying Simona Bencini, a well known soul-funky-jazz vocalist singing the tune "Tempesta" (Storm)... ???

DO YOU KNOW ??? DID YOU KNOW ??? That Gino Vannelli can be in two different countries far, far away from eachother at the same time ??? Maybe there is a twin-brother ??? Two Gino Vannelli's ??? Newspapers and magazines are so full with humour but at least Gino Vannelli's name is mentioned and printed all over this planet !!!

What a way to start the week !!! A real GINO VANNELLI week, also in the USA because Gino is on tour right now... last weekend 2 live concerts in Detroit the city of music !!! Gino Vannelli and His band did the Detroit's grounds tremble with good vibes and good music and the audiences are still in the Gino Vannelli magic !!!

So Gino Vannelli's "THESE ARE THE DAYS" is CD of the week on Radio 2 in Holland.

In the most famous radio program : ARBEIDSVITAMINEN 9.00am to 12.00noon on Radio 3FM, a pop radio station, they play "Venus Envy" everyday. This very famous radio program is already 60 years old and is everyday on radio 3fm especially for the working people. All the people who work and have a radio at work listen very often to the ARBEIDSVITAMINEN (labourvitamines or workvitamines) People get happy while they work and listen to music at the same time,
especially GINO VANNELLI'S Music !!!!

While we type this THEY PLAY : "EastWest World" on radio 2 it's 12.31pm now... WOW !!!!!!!!!!! How crazy (in a very good way) to hear this GINO VANNELLI song... GOOSEBUMPS, CHICKEN-FLESH AND MORE GOOSEBUMPS and the comment of the DJ :

WHAT A WAY TO START A NEW TUESDAYMORNING IN HOLLAND...


A NEW DAY STARTS WITH A BIG SHOCK A REAL GINO VANNELLI SHOCK IN A VERY GOOD AND POSITIVE WAY!!! A VENUS ENVY SHOCK !!!
It's 8.54 am in the early Tuesday morning and we cannot believe our ears, suddenly we hear a very well known tune and intro on our radio, huh ???? Another huh ???? Radio Hilversum 1 ??? We have to explain that radio 1 is a big news radio station in Holland and with many listeners, and very many
so-called intelligent and bright listeners from all kind of industries and political origins, so very positive for Gino Vannelli's song... but that is our humble opinion. Anyway we listened again and walked to the radio to see if the radio was on or the cd-player, silly but it's true, the radio station Hilversum 1 was really on and it was just before the nine o'clock news. So weird but also fantastic to hear Gino Vannelli's "Venus Eny" in the biggest news show on the Dutch radio, it made us smile and it made our hears pump much faster and we cannot wait to hear the opinions about "Venus Envy" by the plastic ladies (and men!) of Holland...

They played the complete Gino Vannelli song "Venus Envy" and the journalist's comment was :
"A musical dessert for you" Gino Vannelli with "Venus Envy"

We and we are sure many more around this world are so very PROUD of the Master of Music :
GINO VANNELLI !!! His work will always be more than just music !!!

Blame it on those dippy dreams of beauty queens
Who kowtow to the pressure
Prescribing to the point of view that bigger is better
Yeah those tattooed lips those vacuumed hips this whole insanity
Remember what you do you do for you and not for me.

See the lyrics of "Venus Envy"

GINO VANNELLI IN THE LOCAL PORTLAND OREGONIAN TODAY... BUT OUR GINO VANNELLI NEWSPAPER EDITORS FOUND MANY MISTAKES IN THIS NEW ARTICLE... WHY DO JOURNALIST DO NO RESEARCH BEFORE THEY PRINT ???


BETTER WRONG NEWS AND BAD INFORMATION THAN AN EMPTY NEWSPAPER ??? ARE THERE ONLY JUST A FEW LINES AND SENTENCES TO FILL THE NEWSPAPERS OR ARE THE JOURNALISTS REALLY INTERESTED IN THE ART OF THE PEOPLE THEY INTERVIEW ??? AND THIS IS ABOUT A REAL ARTIST WHO CREATES ART IN MUSIC !!! THE MASTER OF MUSIC : GINO VANNELLI !!!
Here is the complete article with the title : sound check

sound check
Friday, December 30, 2005
By MARTY HUGHLEY

THINKING LOCALLY -- Gino Vannelli loves Portland, though you'd never know that from his performances in the city through the years.

In fact, Vannelli -- who scored big hits in the 1970s with such grand-scale pop productions as "I Just Wanna Stop" and "People Gotta Move" -- has lived in the area since 1992, now in Corbett. In all that time, he's yet to play a show in Portland.

"I feel like a ghost, walking around the streets in Portland," Vannelli said recently over lunch at Wildwood. "People ask me what I do. And I work all the time! Just not here."

Actually, Vannelli has worked plenty around here, building two studios and recording a pair of albums for the jazz-oriented Verve Forecast label. But he's focused his touring on the places where his following remains strongest: in Eastern Canada (near his native Montreal), the eastern United States and "about 80 percent in Europe."

"This time around I figured it was high time I did a gig here." "This time" is Tuesday and Wednesday at Mississippi Studios, where Vannelli launches a tour in support of his forthcoming album, "These Are the Days." Due out Jan. 17 in Canada (as of this writing, the U.S. release had not been determined), the album is divided between seven earlier hits in remastered recordings and seven new songs that return Vannelli to the mainstream after a decade of exploration in jazz, "quiet storm" R&B and bel canto styles.

Vannelli said he also wanted to have something that reflected the roots he now recognizes he and his wife have put down in the Portland area. Instead of using musicians from Montreal, he has assembled a band with three of Portland's top players: pianist Randy Porter, who worked on Vannelli's 1995 album "Yonder Tree," bassist Sandin Wilson and drummer Reinhardt Melz. Guitarist Allen Hinds from Los Angeles completes the group. Rhythmically, harmonically, texturally, the band is imposingly talented, and Vannelli's voice -- after diligent study in recent years to handle the classical orientation of his multilingual "Canto" album -- is in impeccable form.

Vannelli will perform a mix of material from throughout his career, from those early hits to the '80s electro-pop artifact "Black Cars" to more recent work, albeit adapted to his mature sound and approach.

"I've been focusing the past six or seven years on doing songs people know, but doing them in a different way," he said. "And now people are loving it and wondering what new approach I will take."

*** THE END ***

Here are the mistakes which the editors of this Gino Vannelli newspaper found in this sound check article :

We connected with Gino today and He agrees with our opinions, and gave us permission to write this report about the OREGONIAN newspaper. So here we go :

(1): Gino Vannelli recorded 4 albums in Portland, Oregon, not a pair but 4 complete Gino Vannelli albums : YONDER TREE, SLOW LOVE, CANTO and THESE ARE THE DAYS... Gino also recorded many projects in His studio with local musicians... Gino performed live with the bass-guitar player Sandin Wilson in the Jimmy Maks jazz night club. Randy Porter a famous piano-player from Portland, Oregon played for Gino many times.

(2) : Gino Vannelli lived in the city of Portland, Oregon for 10 years from 1990 to 2000 and in 2001 the Vannelli Family left the busy city of Portland, Oregon for the country. A little village in the south - west of Portland near a very beautiful lake not that far from Portland because the studio is still in Portland. The editors of this Gino Vannelli newspaper visited Gino and His Family in their new home and it's not Corbett...

(3) : The release date of Gino Vannelli's new album : "THESE ARE THE DAYS" is not 17 January 2006 but 24 January 2006 according to the latest news of Gino Vannelli's management...

(4) : Re: Gino Vannelli's touring : They forgot to mention Japan, Mexico and South-America but also The south of the USA like Texas, Louisiana, Florida and California in the west. Last but not least Russia.

Thank God they wrote Gino Vannelli's name in the right way...

Anyways one thing is good, very good and that are the Mississippi Studios... If you can get there next week on Tuesday 3 January 2006 and Wednesday 4 January 2006, take your chance for this very special one-off concert in Portland, Oregon. An unique chance to hear the Man with golden voice and the Master of Music :

GINO VANNELLI !!!

GINO VANNELLI NEWS... WHAT'S HAPPENING ???


THE BEST AND MOST BEAUTIFUL GINO VANNELLI NEWS IS... ??????
Gino Vannelli is super busy with composing a new show with new music, GINO VANNELLI'S MUSIC, for the big Canadian tour wich really starts in Portland, Oregon, USA on 3 and 4 January 2006. Gino works very hard as usual and is dedicated to His music like a Mother to her child. Everything is new, Songs, faces, instruments, the air even smells different... And Gino lives in a mysterious dream. Gino took Himself completely out of the comfort zone, and sees a great challenge before Him. The mountain is looming. But Gino thinks : "What a great thing it will be to climb it and see what lies on the other side."

Good, best and beautiful Gino Vannelli news is for everybody a personal matter and it depends on where you live on this globe... One thing is for sure when you live in a reasonable distance from Portland, Oregon, USA... The news about 2 unique Gino Vannelli live concerts is the BEST news you have ever heard and in such a super cosy and intimate room called the Mississippi Studios, this news cannot get better for the Gino Vannelli fans and the real music - lovers who are able to go there and order the tickets at the Mississippi Studios...

Than the release of Gino Vannelli's : "THESE ARE THE DAYS" in January 2006. That's super good news to all music lovers on this planet. We still received 24 January 2006 as the release date but on the Universal web site it's still the 17th of January 2006 so we have to wait for another month to be sure which is the right date...


Thursday 8 December 2005 :

RUN TO YOU LOCAL NEWSPAPER SALES MAN OR WOMAN FRIDAY 9 DECEMBER 2005 AND BUY THE AD NEWSPAPER BECAUSE THERE IS AN IMPORTANT INTERVIEW TO READ !!!
Gino Vannelli in the Dutch newspaper "Het Algemeen Dagblad !!!" (AD) A BIG newspaper in Holland and the Netherlands so the promoting for Gino Vannelli's new album "THESE ARE THE DAYS" started already... Good musical things are coming our way soon...

We do not like the title in the Dutch newspaper but that's our own personal opinion, it's so cheap !!! But this is the way for journalists to catch people's attention for an article or interview. The title is :
"GINO VANNELLI : Lover at age"
So you all can have your own feelings and thoughts about this title. We are always happy though to see Gino Vannelli's face in our newspapers and especially news about a new album... Be ready tomorrow for the newspaper and be ready to buy Gino Vannelli's new original album :
"THESE ARE THE DAYS" next year January / February 2006...

And guess what ??? They put Gino Vannelli with 1 "n" underneath Gino's picture !!! Thank God Gino's name is spelled good in the article/interview. And in the original AD newspaper is a very BIG picture of Gino, we heard the Gino picture is the size of a whole newspaper page in tabloid format/size... We cannot wait to run to the newspaper shop tomorrow to buy a few original AD newspapers...

Do not forget to read the news flashes on the Gino Vannelli "These Are The Days" web page...

An we have to make an update for the Gino Vannelli tour data and information web page so keep hitting these Gino Vannelli web pages everywhere, that's always good for the Gino Vannelli statistics and the Gino Vannelli music history !!!


Thursday 1 December 2005 :

Because of an unplanned election that day in Canada we all have to wait a week longer. The longer the wait the higher the enjoyment !!! Do not forget to read the news flashes on the Gino Vannelli "These Are The Days" web page...

GINO VANNELLI'S UNLIMITED HARD WORK TO GET A SUPERB NEW ALBUM FOR US THE FANS AND THE MUSIC LOVERS


IT'S ONLY LOVE - VENUS - EAST WEST WORLD - ROCK ME TO HEAVEN -
While we visited the Master of Music inside the real and only Music Heaven on this planet, the very first radio single of Gino Vannelli?s new album arrived in the middle of September 2005 at the Canadian radio stations in Montr?al and Toronto. The Gino Vannelli first radio single : ?It?s Only Love? is well received in the world of pop and Adult Contemporary music !!! And many people heard Gino Vannelli?s musical creation already.

Here is a Toronto radio station where you have the biggest chance to hear Gino Vannelli's latest work of art :

IT'S ONLY LOVE

Very exciting and scary times for Gino Vannelli from now on to an unknown possible future ??? After a full year of extreme hard and difficult work, the struggle and battle with His perfectionism was extreme difficult this time and Gino feels this is His most difficult to make album because He had to live, think and be inside the complicated world of pop music? After the masterpiece ?CANTO? which came quite natural from Gino Vannelli?s heart and Gino Vannelli?s feelings & emotions, pop music is a complete different universe and Gino had to dwell in and walk in these pop fields of music again for a long, long time?? Gino Vannelli wrote and composed about 35 new songs and the results are these 7 musical works of art without losing the Gino Vannelli identity.

Gino Vannelli?s new album with 7 complete new musical, lyrical works of art and 7 remastered old songs go with a divine quality sound, 7 complete different songs in pop music style but with the real Vannelli quality and the superb Vannelli style. The new album is about 58 minutes of pleasure and musical satisfaction which will grab your hearts deeply again?

The new album still gets many finishing touches, the work of a perfectionist will never end and even when the new album is already mastered, the mind of the Master of Music goes on and on?. And the next projects are waiting already. The latest news of the record company is : Release world wide January 2006 and it was 8 November 2005 in Canada but as you already know : THE SUREST THINGS CAN CHANGE? We wait with BIG patience for January 2006 when Gino Vannelli?s new album will rock us to heaven? Gino vannelli?s music heaven !!!

A GINO VANNELLI INTERVIEW IN THE POST-STANDARD


CHASING DREAMS
By Mark Bialczak, Staff writer :

With his last two albums, Gino Vannelli successfully caught a couple of childhood dreams.

The pop-music singer-songwriter satisfied deep yearnings with the jazz release "Yonder Tree" in 1995 and the classical album "Canto" in 2003.

"Yonder Tree" didn't set the sales charts on fire, he admits, but his friends in the business liked it. The jazz charts chased a muse he had followed since his youth, when his father was a big-band singer in Montreal and his young son couldn't avoid hearing - and falling in love with - records by Tito Puente and Duke Ellington, Dave Brubeck and Ella Fitzgerald.

"Canto" was the result of loads of hard work. Vannelli says he decided in 1999 to study the romantic languages, reinvestigate orchestration, take another trip to the world of musical theory. He sang the song "Parole Per Mio Padre (A Word for My Father)" on the CD "Haitek Haiku," which Vannelli produced for Dutch pianist Niels Lan Doky.

"Somebody at the Vatican heard it and wanted me to perform it for the pope," Vannelli says during a recent phone interview from his home of a dozen years, a ranch house outside of Portland, Ore.

Record company executives from BMG saw a telecast of that event and signed Vannelli to record "Canto."

That album still sells "not millions, but respectably, around the world," Vannelli says.

So a happy Vannelli, 53, brings a wide repertoire for his main-stage set Saturday night at the M&T Syracuse Jazz Fest.

He has his old pop hits, such as "People Gotta Move," "I Just Wanna Stop" and "Living Inside Myself." Vannelli has reworked those some. "If I was going to tour, I knew people expected to hear certain songs. But I knew it would be my spiritual death if I just gave people my old songs. After 25 years, I couldn't just go out and do that. So my choice was: I do them, but I tweak them."

Vannelli is also working on a new album. It started out as a greatest-hits project for Universal, with two new songs.

"But this is morphing into something more than a greatest-hits," Vannelli says. "It's actually going to be seven (hits) and seven (new songs)." On the new ones, due out in October, Vannelli fans will hear his take on the contemporary pop scene.

"I kept listening to pop radio to figure out where I fit in," Vannelli says. "I hadn't listened for 20 or maybe 15 years, really. The sentiment has changed. Revolutionizing the world doesn't exist anymore in lyrical content. People are interested in interpersonal relationships. But so much of that is downcast, which is not my cup of tea."

Vannelli wrote 28 songs, looking for a place where he can say, "This feels good, my voice fits right into a good place here, and I find myself not feeling silly playing it."

He says the ones that made the album include "Venus Envy," "about a woman addicted to plastic surgery," and "East West World," "looking into the eye of a belly dancer and the world she represents."

"To me it just gets down to, is it hip or not hip? At this stage of my life, is it a downer or upper? Do I want to sing it? Will it get the solar plexus going? Those basic things have to be there," Vannelli says.


A word from the editor : Niels Lan Doky a Dutch pianist ???

The Syracuse web page is open for reactions now.....

A LETTER TO THE EDITOR FROM A GINO VANNELLI FAN IN PORTLAND, OREGON, USA...


SUBJECT OF THIS LETTER : GINO VANNELLI'S ONE SONG PERFORMANCE IN A SMALL JAZZ CLUB...
ATTENTION Here is an e-mail from Mert M.

Saturday night, May 28, 2005, I was in a jazz club in Portland called Jimmy Mak's listening to a hot bass player and his band. Sandin Wilson is the bass player and is widely recognized on the West coast. About 2/3 of the way through his first set, he started playing "Brother to Brother" and then Gino hopped up on stage and nailed the original arrangement as heard on his recording. The crowd went nuts! Gino stayed through the break and was very generous to everyone. I shook his hand, told him it was a great thrill to hear that song again and many thanks.
The beauty and magic of live music! Mert M. Portland, Oregon USA


Absolutely you can use my message in your newspaper! Refer to me as Mert M. Thanks, Mert M.

No word yet on who organizers will get to replace the Canadian music icon, but suggested fillers include Corey Hart, Gino Vannelli or Alannah Myles". If anyone can find them.

(2) : By Julie Pinsonneault, Syracuse New Times, New York, USA : "The weekend will continue with 1970s pop sensation Gino Vannelli on Saturday, June 25, featuring members of the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra on violin, upright bass, cello and viola". See the whole article overhere....

(5) : By Tim Cuprisin, Milwaukee Journal, Sentinel : Wisconsin, USA : "When radio stations change their formats, they often precede the shift with "stunting," playing something unusual or repetitive or silly, to signify a break with an old identity. That's not what WMYX-FM (99.1) was doing over the weekend when it threw its normal playlist out the window. The Mix adds even more variety over weekend. And we're going deeper yet, deeper into the bowels of music, promises Quinn. Among the performers on this weekend's schedule: Gino Vannelli and Milli Vanilli.

GINO VANNELLI'S NAME IN THE SYRACUSE NEW TIMES...


WHAT'S SHAKIN' BY JULIE PINSONNEAULT, GINO VANNELLI FEATURING MEMBERS OF THE SYRACUSE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA ON VIOLIN, UPRIGHT BASS, AND VIOLA.
Jonesin' for Jazz Fest
Jazz has always been about fusion, and this year the annual Syracuse M&T Jazz Fest will reflect the hybrid nature of America's art form.

This year the June 24-26 2005 festival branches out to include music that harkens to American improvisational music as well as traditional jazz. "We're not a pure festival and I'll be the first to admit that. We're a hybrid," voiced Frank Malfitano, the festival's artistic director while announcing the lineup April 14 at M&T Bank's downtown branch, 101 S. Salina St. "The music continues to evolve and it always has had other elements: gospel, rhythm'n'blues, funk, soul, fusion jazz, rock {and} pop. This year our theme is jazz meets pop, rock and soul."

The continuum implies that such music as funk and Motown bloomed from jazz roots and so the festival, again being held at Onondaga Community College, is divided into three distinct days that begin with jazz fusion and end with a soul singer. Opening day, Friday, June 24, will feature a fusion trio of international stars Bela Fleck on banjo, Jean-Luc Ponty on violin and Stanley Clarke on bass. The weekend will continue with 1970s pop sensation Gino Vannelli on Saturday, June 25, featuring members of the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra on violin, upright bass, cello and viola. The weekend caps off with a performance by r'n'b legend and Grammy lifetime achievement award-winner Smokey Robinson for smokin' soulful Sunday. This year's Jazz Fest will again pay homage to local acts. Those include Grupo Pagan and the Evan Knight Band performing on Friday; Dave Hanlon's Cookbook, Eye Level featuring Mark Copani and the Greg Evans Trio on Saturday; and the Nanni-Salce Intention and Soft Spoken taking the stage on Sunday. National acts playing Friday include the Ron Blake Band and the Randy Brecker/Bill Evans Soulbop Band; Saturday will see the Club Django Sextet of Toronto, the Mike Longo Trio and Ilona Knopfler; and Sunday has Toph-E & the Pussycats, Spaces and Corey Christiansen.

In addition, 15 student bands ranging from middle school to college, adding up to more than 300 student musicians over the three days, are set to perform. This type of dedication to the younger generation of jazz players earned Malfitano's baby a nod, in 2004, from the International Association for Jazz Education, which ranked the festival among its top 10 jazz events with scholastic components. In keeping with the scholastic theme of the event, one local educator received a personal accolade as Malfitano officially decreed June 25 as Carol Jacobe Day. Jacobe is retiring this year after 24 years at Baldwinsville's C.W. Baker High School as vocal jazz director and ensemble leader of the Silk & Satin Vocal Jazz Ensemble, scheduled to play on her special day. "These are the unsung heroes in the community, folks," explained Malfitano. "Our band directors, our music directors, our vocal/chorale directors who create the future with this music and sustain it. They don't get enough recognition so we decided to change that." Malfitano also awarded WAER-FM 88.3 (Jazz 88) a plaque for its ongoing financial support and sponsorship since the festival's inception.

Always free, the 23rd annual Syracuse M&T Jazz Fest will be held next to the Health and Physical Education Building and the Whitney Applied Technology Center on the OCC campus, 4941 Onondaga Road. For more information, visit www.syracusejazzfest.com or call 437-5627. - Julie Pinsonneault -

This early Tuesdaymorning we went to the postoffice in our hometown because we had to mail packages from the Gino Vannelli auctions to the USA and to have some fun we asked the girl behind the counter if she could check the computer of the ticketservice for GINO VANNELLI TICKETS and YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS, surprise... surprise... We could spend money on Gino Vannelli tickets !!!! Always a good feeling which makes us smile from ear to ear !!! The ticket sales for Gino Vannelli in De Oosterpoort already started this morning of Tuesday 19 April 2005 !!! Not for Paradiso, these sales start next Saterday 23 April 2005. Like the manager of Paradiso told us already But de Oosterpoort did not tell nothing yet and they already started the sales ??? How unfair of de Oosterpoort !!! They will never ever understand how fans true fans feel about this and how eager, desperate and passionate the fans are to buy tickets... Especially GINO VANNELLI tickets...

Anyways we advice you to buy tickets for both concerts because we know how many people had BIG regrets in the past that they did not buy Gino Vannelli tickets for all the Gino Vannelli concerts in Holland and when the time is there it will be sold out !!! About De Oosterpoort it looks like far away but it's a great small concert-hall and a MUST for every Gino Vannelli Fan to be there and a weekend Groningen is always nice for people who do not visit Groningen very often !!! Paradiso has 1500 standing places including the 2 balconies and De Oosterpoort has only 750 free places........... Both venues are great concert-halls, modern, intimate and between large and small, Paradiso is the music temple of Holland. There are no seats only standing places. Gino Vannelli did his very first live concert in Holland in Paradiso, Amsterdam in November 1990 and Gino was in De Oosterpoort, Groningen in March 1992. Time races by so enjoy life while you can !!!

GINO VANNELLI WITH 4 SONGS IN FOR INSTANCE THE TOP 2000 AND THE RADIO VERONICA TOP 1000 OF ALL TIMES....
Did you know ??? that Gino's songs climbed the charts with more than 500 places ??? Wow !!! The Dutch Gino Vannelli fans worked hard and fanatic to keep Gino in the charts of the top 2000 of the year 2004 but also in the Radio Veronica top 1000 of all times... And we even got Him on higher numbers... Here are the results of the Dutch jury for the Radio 2 top 2000 :

2004 : Number 1345 Gino Vannelli - People Gotta Move (1974) - in 2003 : Number 1809
2004 : Number 1385 Gino Vannelli - Powerful People (1974) - in 2003 : 1895
2004 : Number 1930 Gino Vannelli - Wild horses (1987) -

Radio Veronica aired the Top 1000 of all times and yes Gino Vannelli is at the 669th place with :
"Hurts To Be In Love"...

A word from the editor :
For us Gino Vannelli fans and music-lovers All Gino Vannelli's tunes must be at number 1 at all and every charts in this world !!! It is always great and fantastic to hear Gino's voice on the Dutch radio and it makes us all smile from ear to ear but in our hearts we are also disappointed because Gino Vannelli needs to be at number 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 etc..... That's for sure !!! We do not complain because in Holland they play more and different Gino Vannelli songs than in the rest of the world and *I Just Wanna Stop* is NOT one of them. Wild Horses, Young Lovers, Hurts To Be In Love, People Gotta Move, Powerful People, Jack Miraculous, The Time Of Day and Inconsolable Man......

Friday 17 December 2004 :
LETTERS, COMMENTS AND SOS CALLS FROM GINO VANNELLI FANS ALL OVER THIS PLANET !!!


NOT BY GINO VANNELLI...
THE HALL OF FAME COMMITTEE...
First : "Bandito" is not a Gino Vannelli song by Jacques in France :
Bonjour les amis
By the way i m not exactly ok with your Newspaper (did you know's page 5), "Bandito" B-side of the single "the longer you wait" from 1982 isn t a Gino's song. It s an instrumental track composed only by Joe Vannelli and Gino didn t sing on it so we could say more simply it s a Joe's song. This wrestler is wrong in his credits and i think it s right to render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's. It s the same with the greatest hit of Gino "I just wanna stop" was writen only by Ross Vannelli but with a great difference Gino sing on it for our pleasure. Gino was a so great musician that it s sometimes interesting for the true fans to mention the invaluable contribution of his 2 brothers.
A bient?t
Jacques

Second : Hall of Fame by Terry in the USA :
I think it would be a great idea to mention in the newspaper, and see if there would be any fan interest in trying to have Gino nominated for the "Hall of Fame" . I'll email you with the address for the nominating committee in New York. It would be such a great tribute, especially since I think he' gotten the "shaft" in the US because he was Canadian. But thats just my thoughts. Terry.

Here is the address for the Hall of Fame committee:
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation
1290 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY 10104
USA.

INDUCTION PROCESS :
Leaders in the music industry joined together in 1983 to establish the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation. One of the Foundation?s many functions is to recognize the contributions of those who have had a significant impact on the evolution, development and perpetuation of rock and roll by inducting them into the Hall of Fame.

Performers :
Artists become eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first record. Criteria include the influence and significance of the artist?s contributions to the development and perpetuation of rock and roll.

The Foundation?s nominating committee, composed of rock and roll historians, selects nominees each year in the Performer category. Ballots are then sent to an international voting body of about 1,000 rock experts. Those performers who receive the highest number of votes, and more than 50 percent of the vote, are inducted. The Foundation generally inducts five to seven performers each year.

Non-Performers :
Songwriters, producers, disc jockeys, record executives, journalists and other industry professionals who have had a major influence on the development of rock and roll.

Early Influences :
Artists whose music predated rock and roll but had an impact on the evolution of rock and roll and inspired rock?s leading artists.

The special selection committee elects the inductees in the Non-performer and Early Influences categories.

Side Men :
This category was introduced in 2000. It honors those musicians who have spent their career out of the spotlight, performing as backup musicians for major artists on recording sessions and in concert. Though they often play a key role in the creation of memorable music, the public rarely knows them by name. A separate committee, composed primarily of producers, selects the inductees in this category.


Friday 10 December 2004 :
AGAIN A FEW GINO VANNELLI : "DID YOU KNOW'S" ???


DID YOU KNOW AND MORE.......
Did you know ??? That Bruno Pelletier sang Gino Vannelli's : "Moon Over Madness" during a live concert with the Montr?al Symphonic Orchestra on Friday 1 February 2002 ??? Imagine....

Did you know ??? That we have a soft smooth jazz radio station in Holland called Arrow and that they play Gino Vannelli's music ???

Did you know ??? That there is a wrestler called : The Nighthawk from Waco, Texas, USA, who uses Gino Vannelli's music ??? In His credits are the words :
" Music : Bandito by Gino Vannelli ".

THE FINAL DATE AND TIME THAT THE GINO VANNELI PEPSI STAGE CONCERT GOES INTO THE DUTCH AIR !!!
We received an e-mail again from Saskia Bender of the NPS 4fm radio channel, about the Gino Vannelli & the Metropole Orchestra concert of 30 January 2004 at the Pepsi Stage in Amsterdam, Holland. Saskia wrote that this concert goes into the air of Holland at midnight 0.02 - 01.00, so we wonder how they get this concert in 1 hour ??? Anyway it's the night of 27 into 28 September so beware with the date of your recorders.

Sunday 5 September 2004 :
DID YOU KNOW OR DO YOU KNOW ???


DID YOU KNOW THAT GINO VANNELLI'S SONG WILD HORSES BROUGHT BIG GOOD LUCK ???
(1) : After our last message dated 24 august 2004 we can write : Did you know or maybe do you know ??? That Ankie Grunsven and her dancing horse Salinero really won the golden medal for Holland, what a coincidence isn't it ??? We feel that it really helped in a good positive way that Gino Vannelli's song WILD HORSES was played that noon on the Dutch radio 1, Olympic Radio.

"Hey hey hey it's a beautiful thing..............
Wild Horses....."

(2) : Did you know that David Goldblatt, Gino Vannelli's personal piano-player has his own cd out ??? The title is : Facing North At Amazon dot com they write David Goldblatt's name wrong so when you do search you have to write Devid Goldblatt, stupid but true.

(3) : Did you know that David Goldblatt plays the acoustic piano on a cd called : Live in Hollywood by the Alphonse Mouzon Quintet. Here you can see it...

NO news yet from Kincardine and no news yet from Gatineau..... We have an empty page ready to be filled in with HTML and pictures....

6 September 2004 : A few messages from the Gino Vannelli Kincardine concert are flowing in.....


Tuesday 24 August 2004 :
GINO VANNELLI ON THE DUTCH OLYMPIC RADIO WITH WILD HORSES


PRIME TIME FOR GINO VANNELLI'S MUSIC ON THE NUMBER 1 RADIO STATION IN HOLLAND !!!
12.00 noon this beautiful Tuesday. There is news and sports, the Olympic Games, on radio 1 the number 1 news radio in Holland and at this moment radio 1 is radio Olympic so many, many people listen to this channel and it just flows over in a very familiar sound which make our hearts pump like crazy even though we heard this Wild Horses song already 20 million times.... The telephone rings........ "GINO is on Olympic Radio" !!! and life goes on with sports and news.....

Maybe this Gino Vannelli song on the Dutch Olympic radio will bring good luck to our Dutch Amazon Ankie Grunsven and her Horse SALINERO, who are defending the gold medal in Individual Dressage,
she will compete in her fifth Olympic Games in Athens, Greece. She is trying to win the dressage
(Dancing with horses)and they go for the gold medal with their performance. She and her Horse BONFIRE were the gold medal winners in Sydney 2000.

And the wind whistles by like a runaway train

Saterday 29 May 2004 :
A LETTER TO THE EDITOR FROM A DEDICATED GINO VANNELLI FAN


SUBJECT OF THIS LETTER :
"American cable network airs great concerts, let see if they will film Gino's upcoming NY show or air any footage at all for us fans... and the future fans!"
Hi Friends!!
I have included the entire email that I sent to the Ovation Network this evening. I thought it might be a good idea to have Gino's many fans, especially all of us who regularly visit your website, request that the Ovation Network offer some Gino Vannelli music videos, interviews or concerts to their audience. Their email address is info@ovationtv.com

There is another cable channel called BET2 which features many jazz and blues artists. It might be a good idea to send requests to these people too. Their website is BET2, I couldn't find the email address right away. Sorry. As always thanks for the best GV site ever! Jill. Here is my e-mail :

Hello,
I recently upgraded to digital cable and although the picture and sound have remained just the same or may be even slightly actually worse, I am thrilled with the additional channels, including specifically your Ovation network and IFC (the Independent Film Channel). I am particularly pleased with the various music and concert programs offered by your channel and would like to request anything at all by Gino Vannelli. I own the two concert tapes that he offers via his website at ginov.com so I am most interested in seeing those concerts, music videos and interviews which are not availible in the U.S.

Gino is from Montreal, Quebec, Canada and from what I gather Canadian TV has featured him more often. He has a new CD out from the following record label www.vikrecordings.com. Surely they would provide free video if there is any availible or maybe you all could produce your own show featuring this fantastically talented artist. While writing this request I just found out about a rare upcoming live appearance this July 13, 2004 in New York. The following web page has info : Go there... I am going to find out about tickets and airfare from NC for myself right now!

The best info about Gino Vannelli anywhere is not at his site or his record company's site but the following:Gino Vannelli web pages... If you need to know it, it will be loyally posted with Gino's greatest fans! Thanks for your consideration. A New and Delighted Viewer, Jill, NC

The end of Jill's e-mails, a dedicated Gino Vannelli fan!!!

GINO VANNELLI... Yesssss we heard the right name : GINO VANNELLI... and they show :

BAD NEWS AND GOOD NEWS ...


IN SOLIDARITY...
In Memory of all the people who died again in those evil acts in Madrid, Spain we print a few e-mails to show the world some solidarity:

Hi B&T,
I keep forgetting to tell you how strongly we, in Quebec, also feel the horror of what has happened in Madrid, and which rallies all of Europe (yourself included I'm sure); an horror which can only be met by the beauty of the human spirit, and the love and hope created by those who still believe in the powers of Art/heart.

Tonight, in front of Gino, and tomorrow in front of Diane (who's giving a Kurt Weill concert with the Philarmonic Orchestra at the Place des Arts), all our souls will be united to fight the Bad in men. I truly believe so !!!!!

I'm leaving you with an old picture of GV projecting his powerful and angelic voice, and a recent one of Dufresne, in the angel costume she created a few years ago... They are icons of love and hope.
Peace dear Barend and Trees xxxxxxxxxxxx Jo in Montréal.


Hello people.
Only one question from a fan of Madrid, Spain. Wishing apart you remember the victims of terrorism in your next comunication in the web, i'd like to know if that's possible gino have got a cigarret in his fingers as seems apears in the latest picture of the web.

Thank you very much for your effort to bring us all the information about the adventures of this great artist, probably the best.

Let's pray for the 200 died and more than 1400 injures and condemn the act and ask for responsabilities if there are.
No name printed ?? But this e-mail came in from A Gino Vannelli fan in Spain.


Hello, Only God knows why ??? We were shocked to see the news about those evil, very evil acts in Madrid, Spain...
Again sorrow and despair among the people and their Families who only wanted to go to school or to their work ??? Why ??? All this horror in people's lives does not make peace or a better world but only more bitterness and hate....... We hope really hope the victims are in a much better world now and we will pray for the Families that they can live thru these deep dark days of despair. In shock we listen to Gino Vannelli's : "None So Beautiful" and Gino Vannelli's : "I Die A Little More Each Day".....
To the rest of the world : BE SAFE and think......

Tomorrow, Monday 15 March 2004 at noon, we will have a 3 minutes of silence everywhere in Holland in memory of the victims of Madrid.
Barend and Trees.

"There's none so beautiful as the brave"

"None so strong as love beyond all reason that fears no evil"

"Oh there's a cross on a hill where no steeple bells ring
A shrine with no name where little children sing to the rhythm that rocks us
From the cradle to the grave
Yeah, there's none so beautiful
Oh, there's none so beautiful
Oh, there's none so beautiful as the brave...
Gino Vannelli

Sorry we are not in the mood right now for the good news but we will write the good news tomorrow or the day after tomorrow.....

Hello Barend and Trees, Just back from Russia.. A great trip and successful concerts.
You were right, the Russian people were very receptive and it made them very happy for us to offer Gino?s music. They were filled with love for us and I have never signed so many autographs. People were bringing copies of my cd that I did in 1996 up for autographs too.. Very kind.

I got to drive around with a nice guy named Joumber who I met at the show. He wanted to show me Moscow as the Muscovites live it. I met his 4 year old daughter and we went to a composers apartment. His name is Gabil. His wife is Galia. They really loved the show and made copies of cd?s for me and were so friendly. The Kremlin was wonderful to see also. I am in a daze now as my time clock is all turned around. It was fantastic to see you both as always. Although way too short. Thanks for your well wishes along the way and your constant support and love. Ours goes back to you and I?m thankful as always for our friendship.
Love, David

GINO VANNELLI IN HOLLAND FOR "ONE" DAY...
GINO VANNELLI IN THE TOP 2000 A GO GO SHOW AS A SURPRISE GUEST !!! WHAT IS GINO DOING LATELY ???


GINO VANNELLI SUPER BUSY WITH ALL THE ONGOING PROJECTS !!!
Gino Vannelli is very, very busy with :

(1) : Creating a new CANTO single in the English language. This new project is very time consuming and Gino's brains and heart work more hours than you can imagine plus all the work that needs to be done too like hanging the Christmas lights etc......
The new English CANTO single is remix and will probably end up completely different. The most difficult part are the English lyrics which need the same feelings and emotions which are meant for CANTO in Italian, you fans will know what we mean, the lyrics need this Gino Vannelli touch, a touch from the heart, Gino Vannelli's heart! The Italian language is a different emotion than the English/American language ! Gino is working together with David Goldblatt the Master of the Grand-Piano and Gino says he just was on the phone with the Bass-player and Drummer of Peter Gabriel who also play on this new version of CANTO. They were playing to Gino thru the phone, imagine this...

Some English CANTO lyrics of a verse came into Gino's mind in Holland, yes in Holland, Gino was in Holland only for 1 day !!! While Gino was suffering from a BIG jetlag and had many difficulties to sleep and to stay awake great lyrics came into His mind... Speaking of inspiration... The ways of getting good inspiration are long and hard... This life of an artist is far from glamorous...

Gino Vannelli in the top 2000 a go go show (2) : New duet with a British singer... More news about this new project later...

(3) : Flying to Holland to surprise a Gino Vannelli fan in the top 2000 a go go show which will be on air Monday 29 December 2003 at 19.00 - 20.00 Netherlands 3 NPS TV !!!
Yes Gino makes a fan very happy so we do not write much about this tv show, you have to watch this Top 2000 a go go show yourself and we will make a web page about this remarkable Gino Vannelli tv appearance with pictures and everything !!!

(4) : Celebrating Christmas and the Holidays with His Family, which is very important to Him because the way Gino loves His Wife and Son is very impressive and touching.

(5) : And last but not least building a new studio with new modern and superb equipment to make even more better recordings in the future... And that's good news for the fans and music lovers.

(6) : Than there are concerts coming up in Holland, Russia and Canada.
These concerts need preparations and lots of work too. So you all can imagine what's going on in Gino's mind...

HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A SUPER GOOD AND LOVING NEW YEAR TO ALL TRUE GINO VANNELLI FANS ON THIS PLANET AND IN THE WHOLE UNIVERSE
Keep on enjoying life, a loving, good, and healthy life with good music :

Gino Vannelli's Music !!!

In Toronto, Canada, we have a walk of fame in the theater district that displays prominent and remarkable Canadians from the arts, entertainment, and sports talents in the world through a series of inlaid "sidewalk stars."
Canada's Walk of Fame for 2003 includes Shania Twain, Mike Myers, Robbie Robertson and Scotty Bowman to name a few.
Canada's Walk of Fame is now accepting nominations for 2004. I can think of no other Canadian deserving of this honour than Gino Vannelli. I am hoping that with your assistance through your web site we can get the many fans of Gino to go to Canada walk of fame to submit Gino Vannelli's name for the Canada's Walk of Fame. With your help, I am confident we will be able to succeed with a "sidewalk star."

I thank you for your devotion and appreciation of all things Gino.

AGAIN A SUPERB LIVE PERFORMANCE BY GINO VANNELLI IN A DUTCH TV SHOW !!! GINO SINGS : "PAROLE PER MIO PADRE" ACCOMPANIED BY DAVID GOLDBLATT BEHIND THE GRAND PIANO AND MEMBERS OF THE METROPOLE ORCHESTRA...


GINO VANNELLI'S VOICE GLORIOUS AND SUPREMELY BEAUTIFUL...
EVEN WITH A BIG JET LAG...
Holland blown away by Gino Vannelli's appearance and voice...... Anita Witzier, the guest in Ralph Inbar's TV masque, could not believe her eyes and ears and was really and truly touched. Gino Vannelli a pleasant looking man with His glorious grin walked towards Anita in His own charming way and Anita asked : "Is He for real ???" And the unbelief was all over her...... Gino started singing and the tears, real tears came as a flood and not only from Anita's eyes !!! This tv show is meant to be a humorous show so there were big laughs too and Gino played the game along..... Gino Vannelli is not only the Master of Music but also a genius with words.... Even without earphones who translated the Dutch to English, Gino could not understand nothing of the things they said and did.... That Gino did not have earthings to translate the Dutch was a negative point in our eyes, anyways a lot of people will remember this show because of GINO VANNELLI'S live performance.

David Goldblatt behind the grand piano enjoyed this quick and fast visit to Holland too. And the members of the Metropole Orchestra really love to play their musical instruments with and for GINO VANNELLI.

We will put more pictures on the CANTO web page soon.........


Tuesday 27 May 2003 :

AN E-MAIL FROM THE NPS TELEVISON IN HOLLAND...


THE GINO VANNELLI METROPOLE ORCHESTRA CONCERT AT THE NORTH SEA JAZZ FESTIVAL 2002...
Today we received an e-mail from the NPS Television in Holland and this time with the right date of the Gino Vannelli and the Metropole Orchestra live concert at the North Sea Jazz Festival Sunday 14 July 2002. the right date is now the 19th of June 2003 so NOT 29 May but 19 June 2003 Netherlands 3 - NPS JAZZ 23.50 - 00.50 So write on your calendars : 19 june 2003 !!!

The NPS JAZZ show is only 1 hour so we do not think the whole concert is on because the real concert took 1 hour and 26 minutes... One important thing : Gino mixed the tapes Himself so it must be super quality !!! Great events to look forward to for Holland.

* Remember two important Gino Vannelli dates : 27 May 2003 and 19 June 2003 *

Tuesday 13 May 2003 :
A BUSY GINO VANNELLI WEEK IN MAY ON THE DUTCH TV...


GINO VANNELLI AS A BIG SURPRISE IN A DUTCH TV SHOW...
Yes, Gino Vannelli on the Dutch TV twice in 1 week in May 2003.

* First :
Tuesdayevening 27 May 2003 Gino Vannelli appears as a suprise guest in a Dutch TV show called TV masque with host Ralph Inbar... In this TV masque show famous Dutch people are taken by surprise very unexpected and most of the time with the candid camera and treated to an evening filled with emotions from the past and the future... Their Friends and Family are in the audience and some people are in disguise...
When they are in the studio the party of surprises begins and yes guess what... ??
In this TV masque show it is about Anita Witzier who is also a famous tv host herself and she is a BIG Gino Vannelli Fan so the producers, family and friends decided to drag Gino Vannelli to Holland to surprise Anita Witzier... and oohhhhh yes a BIG surprise it was... when she saw Gino walking towards her and when He kissed her on the cheek with His charismatic Gino Vannelli charm and flair !!! she could not believe her eyes and also she could not believe her ears when Gino started to sing : "Parole Per mio Padre" live with the Violins, Flute, Cello and Bass players of the Metropole Orchestra and David Goldblatt behind the grand-piano... The flood of tears came big ... But see it for yourself at Tuesdayevening 27 May 2003 20.30pm TV masque TROS Television Netherlands 2.

A fun thing during the day was to see the panic in the eyes of the producers when Gino decided to come out of His dressingroom and walk through the corridors of the studio while the door of Anita Witzier's dressingroom went open all the time, the producers tried to avoid that Gino and Anita saw eachother in the corridors.... It looked like a scene from a comedy...

* Second :
Thursday evening Ascension Day 29 May 2003 Netherlands 3 NPS 23.50pm : Gino Vannelli and the Metropole Orchestra North Sea Jazz concert 2002. We still have 29 May as the date and we asked the producer to be sure but he did not give us a reply yet.

* Do not forget to read the CANTO news flashes too...
* 1 week to go before Gino Vannelli's CANTO is born in Europe...

It is unbelievable how hard Gino worked the last years and how dedicated Gino is to his music, it is incredible what Gino did and still does Himself like compose almost all the music, He wrote the lyrics and poems, made the translations in songforms, played the acoustic piano and more instruments... did the mixing, engineering and mastering and okay with help of friends and professionals, like you can read in the cd-booklet in May / June of this year, but it is still unbelievable all the things Gino did and does Himself and lets not forget Gino is also the producer... he also has to handle the record company stuff... and than there are all the songs in the different languages... and Gino's voice is of super high quality and more amazing impressive than ever... You all know the passion and emotions in Gino's voice but we can tell you that it is even more deeper and intense now.... People who were at the Copenhagen concerts will agree with us.... so we only want to let you feel our deepest respect for Gino Vannelli's hard work and that Gino is not just a singer with a nice face it all goes much deeper......


Tuesday 28 January 2003 :
MISTERIES AND MISUNDERSTANDINGS ABOUT GINO VANNELLI'S NEW ALBUM TITLE...


LIKE WE TOLD YOU BEFORE NOBODY KNOWS THE TITLE YET... NOTHING IS CONFIRMED YET... NOTHING !!!!
We have to clear up a misunderstanding or maybe we wrote it in the wrong way but nobody knows the real title yet of Gino Vannelli's new album. The line Gino Vannelli's Canto is from the Oceano web site where they make the new Gino Vannelli photos and where they design the cd-booklet... In a magazine in Holland they write that the working title of Gino Vannelli's new album is Lady Hope so everywhere we see, read and find new messages, articles and titles with different information and everybody knows for sure... that is they hope they are right so please understand well that we do not know either... we only find information about this topic on the internet and we are not going to ask because it is just like a birth is it a boy or a girl.... ??? We do not want to know yet, If we gave you the wrong idea, sorry but we are only simple people from Holland with a poor knowledge of the English / American language. We changed the pop-up window and now we mention more songs.... And if you read the article underneath dated 25 January 2003 with some news from the Master of Music Himself, we do not talk about an album title or something like that, we only talk about scheduled release dates. Okay we hope we cleared this matter up because our incoming e-mailbox gets overloaded....

GINO VANNELLI - GINO VANNELLI FAN - ROSS VANNELLI -
FRANCOIS D'AMOURS......


DID YOU KNOW ???? THIS AND THAT......
Gino Vannelli : is back home safe and sound..... Back home from Canada..... Everything went well..... The show was sold out..... A lot of guests..... It was fun..... Words from the Master of Music Himself !!!
Now the words from a Gino Vannelli Fan :
" Subject : GINO IN TORONTO!!! Hello My Friends, I just received an e-mail from a GINO fan and friend of mine who lives in Toronto. She went to the benefit concert last night and saw GINO!!! The concert was sold out but she waited and was lucky to get a ticket two minutes before the start of the show. GINO sang " Parole Per Mio Padre" and Laura said "HE WAS GREAT!!! Best wishes, Mary Lou".

Ross Vannelli : Did you know that Ross Vannelli composed all the music for the movie : "Wounded" ???? (R) PARAMOUNT HOME VIDEO, 1997, 91 Minutes. We just saw this movie and wow !!! We love this movie and the music fits the images completely, beautiful free nature images, this movie is a good thriller !!! But hey tastes differ !!! You have to see this movie yourself and than give your opinion. And yes the credits showed Ross Vannelli's name.

Did you know ???? That Ross Vannelli is a songwriter in the movies :
(1) : "IMPULSE" - (R) WARNER HOME VIDEO, 1990, 109 Minutes.
(2) : "TEQUILA SUNRISE" - (R) WARNER HOME VIDEO, 1988, 116 Minutes. Starring: Mel Gibson, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kurt Russell.
These 2 movies are for sale at amazon.com but you have to do a search by all products and type the title of the movie !!!

There are 2 more movies we know of in which Ross Vannelli was the composer of all music :
(1) : Snowboard Academy 1996.
(2) : The Final Cut 1995. A super thriller and the music gives you even more excitement, not a movie for people with a weak heart.

Francois D'Amour : CONGRATULATIONS !!!! Francois and His wife Catherine are the very proud parents of a new born Baby-Girl called Lily-Jeanne , you probably know Francois D'Amour the sax-player, very good musician and very nice human being in Gino Vannelli's band in 1999 and 2000. We wish them lots of love, fun and a very good health for the next 100 years or so and that they can be together for a long, long time.......Lily is a very beautiful Girl with good deep dark eyes.....and lots of hair......

2 : Gino Vannelli nummer 1 !!! Gino Vannelli composeert zijn muziek zelf, schrijft zijn teksten zelf, produceert zelf, mixed zelf.... Een komplete perfectionist die muziek voorbrengt uit zijn hart en deelt met ons allen !

3 : Over Gino Vannelli zijn talenten en muzikale kwaliteiten zijn geen woorden te vinden die duidelijk omschrijven hoe het ?cht is en hoe het ?cht voelt. Mensen die wel eens bij een Gino Vannelli concert zijn geweest begrijpen dit precies en voelen de magie en de intense emoties die niet uit te leggen zijn en ook niet met woorden te beschrijven zijn.

4: Gino Vannelli maakt met zijn muziek, pure muziek het leven rijker, zijn muziek en teksten laten je denken, diep nadenken en het raakt je in je hart en ziel, diep h??l diep !!! Gino Vannelli's muziek kan zelfs levens redden.

5: Gino Vannelli's muziek heeft veel, h??l v??l andere muzikanten geinspireerd en Hij wordt ook wel DE muzikant onder de muzikanten genoemd !!! Dus Gino Vannelli moet zeker en tenminste met 2 nummers in deze top 2000 komen !

So 5 different "WHY GINO VANNELLI" ???? Choose 1 of the 5 and copy it and than paste it into the empty text box.... Than your name and e-mail address..... No need to write your personal address because we do not know if they allow people from other countries to vote, but who cares we can always try ! Than hit the "VERSTUUR" button again !!!!! that?s it and we in Holland can listen to the top 2000 on radio 2 from 26 December up to 31 December 2002, we will let you know where the 3 Gino Vannelli songs end up !!! For us it have to be number 1, 2, and 3 that is for sure !!!!!!! So go for it ...........................VOTE FOR THE MASTER OF MUSIC : GINO VANNELLI !!!!

BACK FROM COPENHAGEN, DENMARK WITH TOO MANY GOOD FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS ABOUT THE MOST SUPERB, SUPER TOP QUALITY, HIGHEST LEVEL GINO VANNELLI LIVE CONCERTS EVER !!! GINO VANNELLI'S VOICE EXTREME POWERFUL AND SUPER STRONG.....


FLOODS OF EMOTIONS..... AND WHERE EXTREMES MEET IN MUSIC.......
GINO VANNELLI'S MUSIC !!!
We do not know how to start because we are still in Gino Vannelli's music heaven and we cannot get out yet ! Now we feel to go in extremes, really extremes, but we can never ever explain or express with words because this quality MUSIC is beyond any words.......Where is the limit in quality ?? In Gino Vannelli's mind, heart, brains or soul there is NO limit for quality music! And there is NO limit in His dedication to music! This super extreme mix of classical music and the "older" songs in these shows are just tremendous, terrific, phenomenal and much more words we do not know. Sundaynight we had 3 hours of MUSICAL WORKS OF ART each song was really a super MUSICAL WORK OF ART by Gino but also all the Musicians of the Danish Orchestra and by Gino's musicians and all the people who worked behind the scenes, this was such a BIG and sometimes difficult project and everybody worked extreme hard to get it all ready for the TV show which was recorded Sundaynight. We will mention all the names on our new Copenhagen web page. We hope we can give you the good feelings too by this message but one day there will be a TV show worldwide so you can all see and feel what we mean........... The sounds that popped out of Gino's voice were incredible and so powerful that the audience went wild. And Gino's voice brought real tears in peoples eyes!! Also a mix in audience from fans to season tickets holders and very young people, all were blown away by Gino's live performance and extreme powerful voice! But there were also a lot of BMG record company people who make the BIG decisions!

We know that we always write the same words about Gino's music but that is all there is, we have only a small knowledge of the English language so we try and this is the best there is ! We will make a Copenhagen webpage with pictures and concert reviews and our own story but it will take some time. We will mention all the names and the set lists and everything we know from the Flamenco to the Opera singer and also about 6 new songs which Gino performed live on stage.

More hard and difficult work for Gino will follow now, the mixing, the deals, the hard business work and dealing with the difficult business world of music, and making this TV show perfect for the world to see and to listen to.

Imagine : .... a classical Flamenco guitar player and a Flamenco Dancer in "Brother To Brother".

Imagine : .... a new song called : " The Last Dance ". A song Gino worked on with His Brothers Joe and Ross Vannelli. A VANNELLI quality musical work of art which they had to create under high pressure and Gino said on stage that the tension in that room in Los Angeles was high, very high !!! But they did it again !!!

TOO MUCH.... MUCH TOO MUCH GOOD AND AMAZING MUSIC !!!
GINO VANNELLI'S MUSIC !!!

My, oh my it is hard to explain the emotions of the music we heard but we cannot stop ourselves to write something in this Gino Vannelli newspaper.

Gino will sing a few older songs but also very new songs and the show is about 2 hours long. We will try to let you know more but the music keeps us very busy and we have to go to sleep right now.......We have heard too much, much too much incredible, wonderful, beautiful, superb and really breathtaking MUSIC !!!

A LETTER FROM DR RADIOUNDERHOLDNINGSORKESTRET IN DENMARK !!!


DATED 11 SEPTEMBER 2002.....
Last Saterday we received a letter from the DR RadioUnderholdningsOrkestret dated : Radiohuset
11. September 2002. Here we go :

Dear Barend and Trees Verwaal,
We hereby write to inform you, that the concert with Gino Vannelli in Radiohusets Koncertsal, Saterday the 5.October 2002 has changed starting time to:

09.00 p.m.

Tickets printed with kl. 19.30 are valid for the concert at 21.00.
The change of time is due to technical reasons, as there are another concert set-up in the concert hall earlier the same day. We have chosen to change the time rather than to cancel.
Best wishes, Mille Holmboe Borregaard, tickets - administrator.

Tuesday 27th of August 2002 :
A GINO VANNELLI COVER BY A DUTCH DIVA : KARIN BLOEMEN !!!


SCHADUW JE SCHADUW (SHADOW YOUR SHADOW)
At Last after a search and investigation of almost 2 years we heard this Gino Vannelli cover for the very first time !! Amazing to hear this Gino Vannelli cover in the Dutch language by a very famous Dutch Diva called Karin Bloemen. The muziek is Brother To Brother and this song is only 1'31 long. Much too short in our humble opinion ! The CD is called "LA on tour" and the 8th track is : "Schaduw je Schaduw" by K.van Dijk/G.Vannelli. We wrote the cd information on our Gino Vannelli covers web page at the want-list number 8. We tried for almost 2 years to buy the original CD with the help of the Karin Bloemen office but we had no luck. This cd is out of print and very hard to find but we keep on searching to the original "LA on Tour" CD with this Gino Vannelli cover!! A must for a Gino Vannelli collection !!!!
Sunday 25th of August 2002 :

AN ANSWER TO A QUESTION FROM GINO VANNELLI FANS !!!


GEM = GENERALMUSIC
Gino Vannelli fans from Holland but also from the USA asked us what GEM means ??? People saw GEM on the Keyboards of Otmaro Ruiz and David Goldblatt during a Gino Vannelli tour. They also saw pictures from the Gino Vannelli tour in Europe 2000, especially Italy 2000......... If you go to the GEM website you can see a very small picture of Gino Vannelli on the frontpage GEM and there are links to a picture of Joe Vannelli, David Goldblatt and Otmaro Ruiz. See for yourself !!!

(The 2nd of January 2009: GeneralMusic declared bankruptcy laying off 75 workers!)
We hope your questions are answerred now.......


Sunday 28th of July 2002 :
GOOD ACTION FROM A GINO VANNELLI FAN IN HOLLAND !!!


HONOURABLE MENTION !!!
A Gino Vannelli fan from Holland took some good action, here is his e-mail to jazz.com :
((was in Dutch so we translated to English the best way we could)).

To : info@jazz-now.com and Cc: Barend.Trees@caiw.nl
On the website of the Metropole Orchestra at jazz.com are a selection of international artists mentioned. Since considerable time there is a collaboration with Gino Vannelli, like on the last North Sea Jazz festival 14 July 2002. It seems very justified to me to add Gino Vannelli's name to this beautiful list of international artists and soloists, kind regards, Ron J. Adelaar, Holland, dated 21 July 2002.


Sunday 21st of July 2002 :
WE ARE BACK AGAIN AND WE KEEP ON FIGHTING BUGS, VIRUSSES, EVIL ATTACKS INSIDE OR TO OUR GINO VANNELLI WEB PAGES..........


AFTER A BIG STRUGGLE WE WON AGAIN !!! OUR GINO VANNELLI WEB PAGES WILL ALWAYS SURVIVE BUGS, VIRUSSES OR EVIL ATTACKS !!!

THE SECOND DAY AFTER...........


TWO GINO VANNELLI SONGS ON TV LAST SUNDAYEVENING....
We just saw the tv special about the North Sea Jazz Festival on Sundayevening the 14th of July 2002, the most super top and superb live performance was GINO VANNELLI and the Metropole Orchestra, that is one thing for sure, very SURE !!! What a quality and what a spectacle, this is art.... real musical art !!! The tv special aired : KING FOR A DAY and BLACK CARS, and yes we know if you were there in the statenhal during the Gino Vannelli / Metropole Orchestra live concert the feelings and emotions were different than on TV but hey that is the difference between being there live.... and TV !!! Gino 's quality and talents are on a much more higher level compared to the other live performances, no doubts about that !!! The reaction from the audience said it all !!! When you feel the need to write something down about this Gino Vannelli / Metropole Orchestra live concert, please do NOT hesitate and e-mail us your words and it does not matter in what language, we put it on line for sure.

The two men who hosted this tv special were a disappointment the words they used for this top quality spectacle was below each level, some people cannot get out of the past and keep on putting Gino and Gino Vannelli's music in boxes or stick labels on it or is it just a lack of intelligent words??? But the quality of Gino Vannelli and Gino Vannelli's MUSIC will always rise above any stupid words........Those people never ever do any research they only talk, just talk without saying anything like people never ever do any research how to write Gino 's name, are we right or not !!?? Thank God the North Sea Jazz website corrected Gino's name after we pushed them too hard........??? Sunday's list of concerts was good, very good they printed Vannelli with 2 "NN" and 2 "LL" !!

Gino took the original tapes of the show with Him, Gino will mix the sounds Himself and after September the 5th, in the last months of these year 2002, the complete show will be aired in a tv show called :
" Late night jazz " by the NPS, but they will e-mail us the right day and time and you all can be sure that when we hear the date we will write it down on our web pages for sure !! Something great to look forward to, greatness in MUSIC, greatness in live concerts, greatness in personality !! A few things please the soul but Gino Vannelli's Music pleases the soul well, very well !! ENOUGH SAID......

So put some words in an e-mail and send your words to us.......

We are trying to make a web page called : Gino Vannelli at the North Sea Jazz 2002 and put everything together on this web page also the rehearsal things......We go and work on it like crazy!! But please be patient !! Lots of people promised us pictures, so we anxious wait to receive anything or everything about this concert.


Monday 15th of July 2002 :

GINO VANNELLI BACK HOME TO THE USA....
Gino Vannelli is flying back home right now and again completely and totally devoted to music, His music.......

BIG DISAPPOINTMENTS..... AND NOT ONLY FOR THE FANS BUT EVEN MORE FOR GINO !!! ALL CONCERTS IN ITALY ARE CANCELLED BY THE ITALIAN ORGANIZATION !!!


WE TRY TO GET THIS SAD NEWS TO YOU FROM OUR VACATION ADDRESS SO WE HOPE YOU ALL CAN READ THIS MESSAGE...........
Here we are from our vacation address with this sad news that the Italian concerts are cancelled and we can assure you that this is very disappointing for The Master of Music ! He was looking forward to these 4 live concerts very deeply so you imagine how Gino feels about this news. Gino loves to come to Italy and give live concerts in these historic places and especially with this big Metropole Orchestra, Gino thinks and feels very highly about the Metropole so this sad message hurts Him deep in His heart and soul !! But there will be new negotiations with the Italian organizers so there is a little hope for later this year..............The Dutch people are again very lucky to have Gino on the 14th of July at the North Sea Jazz.
We are very sorry for you all to bring you this sad news but we are also very, very sorry for Gino because His dedication to His music goes deep, very deep and there are only a few on this planet who can really understand this .......................It is so sad and a BIG pity for the world to miss Gino Vannelli's magical and talented live concerts.
That's it from Barend and Trees in an internet cafe somewhere on this planet......

Wednesday the 22nd of May 2002 :
YESSSSSS IT WORKED !!! WE GOT REWARDED !!!THE NORTH SEA JAZZ WEBSITE CORRECTED GINO VANNELLI'S NAME !!


EXCEPT FOR THE FRONTPAGE OF THE NORTH SEA JAZZ WEBSITE THEY CHANGED ALL THE OTHER WEB PAGES IN A GOOD WAY : GINO VANNELLI WITH 2 " NN ".........
Yessssss today we received an e-mail from the North Sea Jazz people that they corrected Gino Vannelli's name, we checked it and yesssss they did except for the frontpage, we e-mailed them again to tell them they forgot the frontpage and for the programbooks it is too late now.......So a pretty happy ending of this Gino Vannelli name spelling story.

This brings back memories again : November 1995 ......RAI Amsterdam.....red neon lighted letters......We walked from the parking to the concert-hall and saw Gino Vannelli's name with 1 "N" in red neon lights, my, oh my, what a shock !!! We searched and searched for the right people and lucky us we had a Gino Vannelli cd-booklet with us ( You can all guess why ???) so we had proof. We found the right man and we had a profound discussion, the man understood the mistake and changed the red neon letters in Gino Vannelli with 2 " NN " !!! And it was a genuine relief for us to see the flickering letters in red neon in a good and correct way !! And quite right too !!

Free Record Shop, Schiedam, Holland..........." V " section .........Gino Vannelli's nameplate, yesssssssss again with 1 " N " and the most bizarre thing was that the Gino Vannelli's cd's with a correct " Vannelli " were in front and behind His nameplate. So we had a mission again and find the manager, we told him our problem and yes the next time we came in this shop there was a good, very good Gino Vannelli nameplate.....Still lots of Free Record shops to go......... Call us crazy but we do not care anyways......We want Gino Vannelli's name spelled in the correct way, that's all !!!

Keep on checking our Gino Vannelli tour data web page, as much as you can because it will probably change again and again and over and over again.................


Tuesday the 21st of May 2002 :
YESSSSSS AGAIN IS GINO VANNELLI'S NAME MISSSPELLED EVERYWHERE AT THE NORTH SEA JAZZ FESTIVAL !!!


GINO VANNELLI WITH 2 " NN " AND 2 " LL ".................. NOT ONLY MISSPELLED AT THE NORTH SEA JAZZ FESTIVAL BUT AT MORE WEB SITES AND PROGRAM-BOOKS....
We keep on e-mailing and keep on telling people : Gino Vannelli with 2 " NN " and 2 " LL " !!!! People do not listen and do not make there homework !! One look at a Gino Vannelli CD cover or at a website, our web pages or the official website. We e-mailed the North Sea Jazz people like crazy but no reply, NO nothing !! We saw it already at the website of the North Sea Jazz Festival and yes when the program-book arrived we almost did not dare to look and yes WRONG !!! Such a shame for such a BIG festival. We know the work and the organisation is a horrible load of work in a short time but hey Gino Vannelli with 1 " N " ??? When people do a search at the North Sea Jazz Festival website with 2 " NN " they will get NOTHING FOUND !!

Go and check out the Gino Vannelli tour data web page, as much as you can because it will probably change again and again and over and over again.................


Thursday the 16th of May 2002 :

The Tripod server for our filemanager was down for 2 days, everybody could read our web pages but we could not work inside, our apologies for the late message but we heard that the radio stations in Holland mentioned the Gino Vannelli / Metropole Orchestra live concert at the North Sea Jazz many times......Anyways.......... Get ready for the ticketss sale at Saterday 18 May 2002 !!! You have to buy a daycard and this time you do not have to buy an extra plus ticket for the PWA hall because the concert will be in the Statenhal !!!

GINO VANNELLI ALREADY RECORDED A MUSICAL WORK OF ART WITH OTMARO RUIZ...... YES OTMARO RUIZ THE WELL KNOWN MASTER OF THE GRAND-PIANO !!!


HEAVEN DENIED ABOUT THE LIFE AND WORK OF BEETHOVEN...........
The 2 Masters recorded "Heaven Denied" already a while ago and we can imagine that this musical work of art will be on Gino Vannelli's new classical / pop album but things change all the time.........we have to be more patient and wait till Fall 2002. "Heaven Denied" is about the work and life of Beethoven and Gino feels that Beethoven was a BIG personality, fascinating and an incredible talented composer. Gino read a lot of books about Beethoven and here are a few things Gino thinks, feels or says :

" Imagine : Beethoven lost everything at the end : His sense of hearing... and because of this... his music and Beethoven also lost his love... and because of all this his faith in God, Beethoven died in total loneliness".

"I sing "Heaven Denied" from Beethoven..........."

"I think that if Beethoven was a singer he probably could have done it like me but I also think that this will bring a lot of criticism to me, just like in the early days with : " A Pauper In Paradise".

"But they can kill me I am ready to bleed !!! It is a BEAUTIFUL piece".

AN OPINION FROM AN AMERICAN GINO VANNELLI FAN


MORE LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ...
I just saw your recent updates and was glad to see the discussion of bootlegs and piracy which affect our artists today! I sent a very angry email to a person on ebay who was selling a cd copy of "crazy life". I told him i have learned to buy something on ebay only if i cannot find a source otherwise and that he was taking something that belonged to Gino and stealing it for his own profit! The next day, he removed it from ebay! I also mentioned to anyone trying to buy "Crazy Life" that six songs are on Gino Vannelli's "greatest hits and more....." A fantastic superb 2 cd-box from Holland. And another "There's No Time" is on the : A&M Digitallly Remastered Best import from Japan so why spend $150.00 when you can get seven songs and help support Gino Vannelli lives's work! Anyway, it is good you talk about this !!!
David C. - USA.

The editors thank David for His supportive letter!!!

MORE LETTERS FROM READERS..... MORE LETTERS TO THE EDITOR.....


A LETTER FROM FRENCH VANNELLI FAN.....

Hello les amis......... If i understand well, it is a little big complicated for Gino to produce something new because the costs are very high. First every true fan on this planet had to know that the piracy of Gino's work is bad for the producer, bad for the recording company and finally very bad for the artist because he cannot realise a new body of work if the sales are very low. Don t forget that if you are a producer and if you put money on an artist of course you should separate the artistry project and the cost for realising it (paying the studios and the musicians) if the artist is a perfectionnist the cost are increasing higher because he spend more time on studio and doing more recordings and more mixing. But at last the producer (the big man with a cigar) he would want to see his money back with a benefice so if the money don t come back because the sales are too low the artist is trapped between his desire to do something new for the people who love his job and the industry who said not enough sales so the consequences are no more recordings. So i can t imagine that Gino didn t do something new this year but the true fans had to be in mind that if the next work of Gino is a classical work it will be more difficult to realise high sales because the promotion is very expensive so DO NOT PIRACY and if you are first class fans everybody on this planet had to buy not one but TWO COPIES (more is better) of is next cd's and offer the second copy for example to your mother or sister or friends.... I hope this message will be quite clear understood by all the fans of the galaxy. see you soon
jacques.

A reply from the editorship : We both really understand your message and warning Jacques......We cannot agree more about the illegal copying of Gino's work, most of the Gino Vannelli Fans know how we feel about this subject..... We keep on saying and yelling : " There is only 1 way to support your favorite artist, BUY HIS OR HERS ORIGINAL WORK and BUY TICKETS FOR A LIVE CONCERT ...........WE KEEP REPEATING THIS OVER AND OVER AGAIN !!!

Ohhh..... there is one more thing we cannot understand, really not understand !!! We see people bid on second hand original Gino Vannelli cd's which are still for sale for example at CDNOW or at other cd shops on the internet and they even bid higher than the sales price of CDNOW ?????? We saw highest bids on :
$ 18.00 BIG DREAMERS NEVER SLEEP
$ 15.50 NIGHTWALKER
$ 9.99 PAUPER IN PARADISE
$ 9.99 BLACK CARS
$ 9.99 POWERFUL PEOPLE
Maybe we are stupid but when those people buy it new at CDNOW or at another internet cd-shop they buy a brand new cd and they support Gino Vannelli's original life's work, because the cd's on eBay are already bought in the music-business !! Are we crazy ??? Or just too simple ??? please do not hesitate to e-mail us with your reactions............Good or bad we do not mind. We know BIG DREAMERS NEVER SLEEP is more difficult to order in the USA but in Europe we can still buy it. We just ordered one at BOL.com to try out if there are any difficulties........CYBER.CD has BIG DREAMERS NEVER SLEEP for sale too, LP and CD !!! YOU CAN SEARCH at different cd shops on our GINO VANNELLI links webpage you will find a lot of links to different cd shops in this galaxy. It will give you pleasure to see all Gino Vannelli's work come by and that you still can buy many of Gino Vannelli's superb albums except for CRAZY LIFE, that's a pity, we know but to comfort you all.......You can easely order the 2 cd-box GINO VANNELLI GREATEST Hits and more.... with 6 original CRAZY LIFE SONGS and 33 more GINO VANNELLI SONGS !!! Trees and Barend's minds are at ease now......
