On the Bus with Joan Jett and the Blackhearts

Mr.GandMs.Jett2.jpg

Oh it was hot. The entire time. However it was worth every drop of sweet rock and roll sweat that rolled between my buttcheeks. I had the honor of being put on Ms. Joan Jett’s guest list and was treated very well by all. Got on the Blackheart bus, which was a fine source of air conditioning also might I add. Immediately began chatting with Manager/Producer Kenny Laguna. A hell of a nice guy with a lot to talk about. I am all ears. Ms. Jett was cooler than the aforementioned A.C. I want to thank Elliot and Julie for the experience and the show. The set consisted of a nice mix of old and new. Joan started off with Bad Reputation and Ch-ch-ch Cherry Bomb, Change the World, ACDC, Riddles and Five, off of Sinner the new release that if you don’t have you need to go get. They closed down with classics, Crimson and Clover and I love Rock and Roll. It was a good as that list looks. Stay tuned for a conversation with Kenny Laguna and another visit with the band before the September 1st show at the Woodstock Fair in Woodstock CT.

Thanks to the BLACKHEARTS.

Dickey Betts in Enfield. Thanks to Pedro.

The Mrs. of the G and I were fortunate enough to hook up with Pedro Arevalo, the bass player for Dickey Betts Great Southern. We were treated like part of the family right away, introduced to many of the members of the band including Twinkle, D-Wayne and even Mr. Betts himself. We were hanging out on the tour bus talking about music and life. We watched the show from right next to the stage and we held onto our backstage pass like it was a true gift. The whole experience was like being invited to the family picnic and needing nothing but a good attitude, and fun will be had by all. And it was. Thanks to Pedro and DBGS for allowing us to be apart of the family for one night.

Check out some of the photos from the show.

Toby Marks is Banco de Gaia.

I had the distinct honor to chat with Mr. Toby Marks (A.K.A. Banco de Gaia) about his new album FAREWELL FERENGISTAN as well as where he lives and a little about the attempt to Free Tibet. Here is a bit of info for you and then listen to our conversation.
We live at a time when we face some of the greatest challanges of our history. Can we afford to lose a people and culture which has understood and lived for thousands of years in harmony with an eocsystem which we seem to be fighting a losing battle with? Can we afford to let a vast repository of spiritual and human understanding which could benifit us all be destroyed to make way for more mines and factories which would only benefit some? The Tibetans will not use violence in their opposition to their oppressors – can we afford to wash our hands of them and accept that it is alright for the strong and ruthless to dominate the weak and principled? Our governments may not be prepared to stand up for what they say they believe in – freedom, human rights, democracy – for fear of rocking the trade boat, but we as individuals can; we can show our support for the Tibetan people, we can push for our public servants to do something to help, and at least the Tibetans will know that they are not alone in their fight to preserve their culture and beliefs, that others around the world also believe in the spirit, the heart and the dream of a world free of power-weilding bullies and their silent allies who look the other way.

Melvin Sparks…talk to me Melvin.

Melvin Sparks is the Essential Guitar Player! He’s The Master Of The Groove! The Acid-Jazz Pioneer! The Originator of Soul Jazz, Old School Acid Jazz & BarbecueFunk(FUNKJAZZ). Sparks recorded seven albums of his own and played on over 100 other albums. As a session man for Blue Note and Prestige Records, Sparks laid his signature guitar work on many other musician’s albums without ever being in spotlight. It was during this time that Melvin defined the jazz-guitar sound of a generation. Melvin Sparks is still a much sought-after studio player, both new and old talents seek him out now more than ever. He continues to perform with the greats of this genre such as Leon Spencer Jr., Mike Clark and Idris Mohammed and is now breaking out his legendary guitar wizardry with many younger bands and artists such as Galactic, The Greyboy Allstars, Karl Denson’s Tiny Univers, Derek Trucks and Robert Walter’s 20th Congress. Melvin is geared up to show us all what he does better than anyone else. Groove hard and in the pocket. Melvin Sparks has perhaps the most inspiring and soul-energizing guitar chops on this planet or another. He is admired by many performers, and audiences old and young alike, but continues to be a hidden treasure for music fans worldwide. He is Soul-Jazzy and Funky to the core!

Listen to Melvin Sparks and I talk about his shows here.

Galactic’s Jeff Raines talks shop.

Galactic was born in the early ’90s, after two Washington DC punks – guitarist Jeff Raines and bassist Robert Mercurio – relocated to New Orleans and found themselves intoxicated by the sounds of the scene that nurtured The Meters, Professor Longhair, the Neville Brothers and Dr. John. Galactic has created a far-reaching canon informed by ongoing influence from a wide range of genres, including hip-hop, blues, pop, and electronica. Now, with six albums and countless landmark live shows to its credit, now, once again headed to new territory—for now, as an instrumental powerhouse. While the band has always embraced stylistic changes and relished its musical adventures, its instrumental chops have never wavered. On the road and in its own New Orleans studio, Galactic continues to reinvent itself, inspiring its ever-growing fan base with ongoing artistic evolution, synthesizing the most thrilling elements of vintage and contemporary styles to keep the party rolling. Galactic will be at Toad’s Place Friday July 21.


Listen to Jeff talk about Katrina and music.

A quick Cello w/Rasputina’s Melora.

A very brief chat with the founder of one of the coolest bands without a guitar since Morphine( at least for me). Melora was on her way from upstate NY to her next destination with a stop over at the infamous Toad’s Place in New Haven. Rasputina is a “cello-rock” ensemble. Founded by Melora Creager in 1891, they have long held true to their mission of enlightening the common man as to the power and versatility of the mighty cello. Historically influenced, and constantly costumed, Rasputina keeps a small legion of incredibly passionate admirers enthralled with their earnest musicianship.

7/15/06 WOMEN IN MUSIC….

So, I decided to do a featute this week on WOMEN IN MUSIC, not really my list of the greatest women to perform but more of a collection of voice/music/sounds all created and presented by women. I featured a wide range from Ms. Aretha to Queen Janis, rocker Joan Jett to the duel cello-sounds of Zoe and Melora of RASPUTINA. Newcomers Susan Cagle, Mandi Perkins and in studio guest Michelle Lewis certainly have awakened a new mucial beast, one the listeners have responded to well. We ended the show w/ the beautiful voice of Kimber Manning from her album Eventually, her classy rendition of WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD reminds us why we wake.

Sinner – Joan Jett & the Blackhearts

After ten years without a new CD, Joan Jett returns to rock and roll with SINNER. (Ten years if you do not count her Japan-only release NAKED. Several of the songs on NAKED can be found here.) Joan not only looks great but sounds fantastic great! This one’s a rocker and you need to get it! The coolest tune is A.C.D.C., a song written by the band Sweet. This one kicks. Have you seen the video with Carmen Electra? As you can only imagine….HOTT
Ms. Jett is Rock and Roll in it’s raw sense. This album certainly brushes up against a few lines politcally, socially and sexually, but never really crosses any. The song Baby Blue hits me in all the right places, from the intentionally slow start to the slight pause between soft into hard, it just is the tune I keep playing.
Best line for me comes from the first track Riddles, where Ms. Jett speaks of the decision makers of the free world: ” Don’t claim that you represent me when I don’t believe a word that you say!”

But, don’t take my word on this album, go out and get it for yourself and make up your own minds. That is what this album is all about. As veterans of the punk scene, it’s only natural that Joan Jett and the Blackhearts will perform on The Vans Warped Tour 2006, as well as their own tour dates in support of the upcoming release. This summer Blackheart will also re-issue Joan Jett and the Blackhearts’ catalog, completely remastered by Greg Calbi with enhanced elements and bonus tracks.

I am working on getting a brief conversation set up w/ Ms. Jett to hear it from her, hopefully we can make that one work out. She needs to be heard.

howdidyousleep.jpg

Welcome to the world of the 88.

With their second album, Over and Over, The 88 refute the myth that art and the three-and-a-half-minute pop song can’t get along. While the new record shares the same rollicking spirit as its predecessor, Kind of Light, it also marks a sonic leap forward for the Los Angeles-based quintet. Once word of The 88’s irrepressible harmonies and hopping pianos – not to mention Slettedahl’s warm, saturated strains – began to spread among club-goers, Light slowly found its way to radio DJs and rock critics. The band became a staple on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, a clearinghouse for rising indie rock outfits, world music composers and underground acts hoping to cross over into the mainstream. Ultimately, 12 of the album’s 13 cuts made the spin list at NPR’s flagship station, opening the floodgates to movie and television offers. Today, the group’s TV resume includes segments on NBC’s Extra and ABC’s The Jimmy Kimmel Show, though it’s arguably their appearance on Fox’s hit series The O.C., whose soundtrack sales have now topped 300,000 copies, that put the troupe on their younger fans’ radar. Then, last year, the live track ‘Coming Home,’ which makes its studio debut on Over and Over, landed a plum spot in the Ben Affleck comedy Surviving Christmas (2004). Meantime, amid all the fanfare, The 88 quietly earned themselves a nod as L.A. Weekly’s Best Pop/Rock outfit in the city.

I had the chance to speak with Keith Slettedahl, singer/guitarist of the band. If you haven’t check The 88 out as of yet, you must not want to have any fun.

The chase down of Derek Trucks.

Well it isn’t as wild as it sounds. I have been attempting to have a conversation w/Derek since early March. His manager Blake and I have been working around each other’s schedule’s: I got put off because of Conan O’Brien…geez!! Finally, we get a chance and the phone lines are acting up in Storrs due to the inclement weather….So, you could be listening to just the sound of airwave fuzz or I actaully did beat down mother nature and make it happen.

Check out what the Derek Trucks Band is up to, including bracing themselves for some work with Mr. Eric Clapton.

The Derek Trucks Band has been a work in progress for over 10 years, blending jazz, rock, blues, Latin, Eastern Indian, and other world music into the sound that now defines the DTB. The band’s mission has been to assemble a group of musicians that share a passion for improvisation and musical exploration, and to develop a united musical vision by performing with this core group of players for an extended period of time. The focus of the band is on the art form itself, despite the current trend of image-driven music on the scene today. The DTB aims to create progressive roots music in an effort to move the art form forward and re establish substance over hype.

Listen to our conversation here.
