The Hi-Def Studio Session Thread

Ok, so I ran across a really good cover of 'Georgy Porgy' by a band called 'Ace of Heart' (Hungarian?). It didn't fit the criteria for a thread on just one song, especially when a lot of stuff is happening in it - playing talent, recording, video capture, etc - so I thought wouldn't it be cool to have a thread to add this kind of stuff into.

Qualifications:
(1) Hi-def 1080p (or higher) video of studio session performance (multiple cameras/angles; a single GoPro on a stationary tripod doesn't cut it, sorry)
(2) High quality in musicianship
(3) High quality in sound (the drums need to be miked to some degree - hey it's a studio session)
(4) Does not have to be a cover but can be
(5) Can be your own band but doesn't need to be

Ok, without further ado:

Song: 'Georgy Porgy' by Toto
Band: Ace of Heart
Vocals: Agnes Szasz
Guitar: Remig Somogyi
Keys: Norbert Bejan
Bass: Gabor Pal
Drums: Attila Zombori

A little R&B feel on this one. Found it while perusing the Craigslist ads for drummers (yeah people are still wanting to get together and practice and gig during the coronavirus crisis). They listed examples of bands they like, so no this isn't an audition for Jordan's band LOL:

Song: "Mind's Eye"
Band: Jordan Rakei
Vocals: Jordan Rakei
Keys: Jordan Rakei
Backup Vocals: ????
Guitar: ????
Conguero: ????
Drums: ????


Interesting drum groove and great vocals!

EDIT: Here's the groove:

Nice groove, Jeremy! I'd like to see the groove notation on this one, just to keep the habit going LOL, but probably more work than I'm up to at the moment.

For those wondering how I do my notations, I use my ipad's Notes app, and a bluetooth stylus pen. I just figured out today I could create a custom staff using the pen and a straight edge, then copy the staff when I want to create a new transcription. Above is an example. The black background is simply the ipad in 'Dark' mode.

I like the BBC One and Live from Abbey Road series that they do.

I really enjoyed the FNM reunion vid.

Here’s one from an Adelaide ‘band’ called the Hindley Street Country Club. Several songs to choose from, with a different guest vocalist each time.
Here’s ‘Taking it to the streets’
