SKY SAW

With over a decade’s worth of projects to his credit, Sky Saw is the latest of many eclectic endeavors for guitarist/composer/electric zither ace Core Redonnett. For close to ten years, he has held the principal zither position in the Boston production of Blue Man Group, giving him the opportunity to master a new and unusual instrument as well as the motivation to custom build one and write a new repertoire for it. A jazz composition degree from Berklee College of Music provided Core a springboard from which to explore a vast number of creative outlets. Experimental large ensemble works, jazz combos, guitar quartets, electronica, a full scale rock opera, and his long standing work with prog rockers Xixxo are among the projects for which he has written, produced, arranged, recorded, and performed. It was in fact through their four years together in Xixxo that Core’s musical relationship with Yuri Zbitnoff was formed. Since leaving that band, Yuri has pursued his interest in improvised jazz and rock through Lithiq’s celebrated jazz/electronica duo, Enuma Elish, as well as a constantly burgeoning set of other outlets that has included, among others, Raqib Hassan’s Interdimensional Science Research Orchestra, the free improv outfit Leap of Faith, and ambient dub metal scientists Teledubgnosis.

GATEMOUTH BROWN

Following His Own Road

Brown is content to live out his days performing and spending time at home near the alligator-filled swamps outside Slidell, La. When he isn’t watching the History Channel, Animal Planet or cartoon oldies such as Tom & Jerry, he’s cruising in one of six beloved mint-condition vintage cars, including a 1976 Buick Riviera and a 1964 Lincoln Continental.

Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, perhaps the most versatile of all blues-based musicians, died Saturday at age eighty-one of complications from lung cancer and heart disease. A longtime resident of Slidell, Louisiana, just outside New Orleans, the Blues Foundation Hall of Famer recently lost his home to Hurricane Katrina and had been preparing to relocate to Austin.
A multi-instrumentalist who played fiddle, mandolin, viola, drums, piano and harmonica in addition to guitar, Brown was a master of many genres: big-band blues, bop, country, Cajun, even calypso — what he called “American Music, Texas Style.” A youthful disciple of T-Bone Walker, Brown’s own ferocious, exceedingly confident style would inspire a wide cross-section of followers, from Albert Collins and Johnny Copeland to Stevie Ray Vaughn and Frank Zappa. “I’m so unorthodox,” he once said, “a lot of people can’t handle it.”
Brown was born April 18, 1924, in Vinton, Louisiana, and raised from infancy in Orange, Texas. He learned to play fiddle and guitar through his father, a railroad man and moonlighting musician who specialized in country and Cajun music. Brown earned his nickname in high school when a teacher accused him of having a “voice like a gate”; a brother, James “Widemouth” Brown, later had a brief recording career of his own. Brown played drums in a touring band before joining the Army. After the service, he found work as a guitar player in San Antonio and was soon brought to Houston by the nightclub owner Don Robey. As blues legend has it, Brown made $600 in tips in one night in 1947 at Robey’s club, the Peacock, while filling in for an ailing Walker.
During his long career, Brown was awarded several W.C. Handy honors as an instrumentalist, and he was a recipient of the Rhythm & Blues Foundation’s Pioneer Award and NARAS’ Heroes Award. In 1982 he won a Grammy for Alright Again!, a Rounder recording that featured covers of songs by T-Bone Walker and Albert Collins. A stint with Alligator Records yielded a duet with Michelle Shocked in 1992, and Verve paired Brown with a procession of admirers, including Eric Clapton, Ry Cooder and Leon Russell, for the 1996 duets album A Long Way Home. Brown’s last album, Timeless, was released a year ago on the Hightone label.

Nick Moss & the Flip Tops: Sadie Mae

Sadie Mae – the new album of Nick Moss & the Flip Tops – is certainly one of the finest Blues events of this summer. 75 minutes of open-mouthed listening. With more evidence than ever Nick Moss demonstrates how contemporary may sound the tradition-based Chicago Blues. More than that – though, in the liner note, he affirms not to be “trying to take blues to the next level”, – he does take the real, authentic Blues up to the level of classical music, where the words “old” and “new”, “now” and “then” loose their sense in the face of an everlasting beauty. A not to miss album for all Blues lovers. Even more for those who aren’t – these 75 minutes will make them change their mind. Don’t miss out. Flip the top down and let the wind blow there blues through your hair.

Little Barrie: We are Little Barrie

Well, from top to bottom this is an elastic blues bouncing into a jazzy funky and then reverberating back into a fuzzy distortion that is almost as soothing as a running warm bath. This CD should keep you tuned and and wating from track to track. PLEASE TELL ME is one that just keeps wanting to play, it send positive vibes right in your earhole and travels down to your soul. This band has to be a fun time live as their album makes me want to keep checking the tour dates to see if I will get lucky this time around.

Peter Wolf: SLEEPLESS

With Sleepless, Peter Wolf strips away any pretense to fashion and warmly embraces the R&B, soul, and country blues that inspired his legend in the first place. Not that Wolf has strayed very far from those roots, either when fronting the J. Geils Band or in his rewarding solo career, but Sleepless presents the singer’s ethos at its most naked and warmly Dylanesque. Whether revisiting Otis Rush’s “Homework,” seasoning William Bell’s Stax track “Never Like This Before” with a dash of Muscle Shoals, palling around with the Glimmer Twins (Jagger on “Nothing but the Wheel”; Richards, along with Geils’s Magic Dick, on Sonny Boy Williamson’s feisty “Too Close Together”), or matching Steve Earle pick by pick on “Some Things You Don’t Want to Know,” it’s an album filled with a spirit of warm, fond remembrance. But more than mere love letters to his roots and heroes past, Wolf’s performances on collaborations with Will Jennings and other writers have a timeless, bittersweet edge that undercut his previous instinct for blues caricature to great effect. Some times it is hard to let go. This is a compelling testament why–and one of Wolf’s most memorable solo creations.

Morphine: The Night

From the opening notes- sliding bass, subtle sax and spare (yet funky) drums, this CD grabs your hand, slips into your head, and takes hold of your soul. The opening title track- the first time I heard it- it’s one of my favorite songs by any group. When I heard Sandman had collapsed on stage, but not until he had handed in material for a full studio album, I was curious what his final musical accomplishment had been. From the moment I heard the titlesong “The Night”, it just struck me: this was some of the best Morphine had produced. Integrating the jazz-like sound of their first album with the catchy choruslines of Cure for Pain and topped with the experimental flavor of YES Morphine had proven to advance. “Top floor, Bottom buzzer” reminded me again of the some of the cure for pain songs. “Souvenir” struck me as a very jazzy song (especially the drumming), more like the songs on “Good”, but then with the improvement I have already been talking about. Then again, The Night also contains unique material like “Rope on Fire”. Never in my life I have heard a saxophone play this catchy eastern tune. Marvellous! In “Take me with You”, minimalism has been reduced with even backing vocals; but, I have to say, the combination of Sandman’s intriguing monotonic sound combined with more instruments (even orchestrated) and backing vocals is very nice to the ear.

To me, “the Night” is a Morphine classic with overall quality rising to the level of “Cure for Pain”, but with a sound which has evolved and grown. Sandman left us where he was best, in the sound of the Night. And to me, he saved the best for last.

Banco de Gaia: 10 years

Banco de Gaia has created a fantastic body of work, successfully blending world-beat sounds and styles with cutting edge technology. When you listen, you hear. There’s something in his music that can satisfy any taste. Whether you’re into rock, dance, prog, electronica, world, ambient, you’ll find something to dig here. You’ll groove to complex, intricate melodies over superbly crafted beats, crossing a variety of genres, to create sublime music, which most importantly, has emotion and soul. Disc 1 is more uptempo, Disc 2 more of the reflective, ambient dubby work…yet both put me in a place I want to be. This music is truly good for your ears as well as your soul.
