JOAN BAEZ – NEW YORK 2016

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Thursday 26 May 2016 at

JOAN BAEZ
New York 2016 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Beacon Theatre, New York, NY; January 27, 2016. Very good audio (ripped from HDTV – Arte HD – broadcast).

To celebrate her 75th birthday, Joan Baez held a concert at the Beacon Theatre in New York; the guests included Jackson Browne, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Judy Collins, Emmylou Harris, Indigo Girls, Damien Rice, Paul Simon, Mavis Staples, Nano Stern and Richard Thompson.

Joan Baez remains an icon of the Sixties folk revival, one of the movement’s foremost architects and a lifelong champion of vernacular musical tradition. So despite the grand setting and fancy roster of artists, Wednesday’s show was, true to spirit, a folk concert through and through, full of spontaneous sing-alongs and impromptu lyrical ad-libs, and with nary a single electric guitar to be found onstage. – Rolling Stone

FOR THE LOVE OF CINEMA: THE STORY BEHIND THE CALCUTTA FILM SOCIETY

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Wednesday 25 May 2016 at

The Calcutta Film Society was registered in October 1947, with Satyajit Ray, Chidananda Dasgupta, Manojendu Majumdar and Purnendu Narayan as the founding members. The society became an important and integral part of the film culture that thrived in Calcutta and remained relevant for decades even though most of its founding members are no more. By Subha Das Mollick.

“WHY NOT START A FILM SOCIETY?

There is no reason why not.

The first decision to make is the scale upon which the proceedings are to be run. You can either start a film society on 16 mm substandard which is cheap or by gathering a membership of sufficient dimensions to be able to hire a cinema on a Sunday afternoon. Or you may be lucky enough to live in a town where some college or institution has a 35 mm installation.” – An excerpt from the last chapter of a book called Film by Roger Manvell, a Pelican Paperback published in 1946.

In 1946, serious studies on cinema were on firm footing as individual and group efforts, more than institutionalized efforts. The British Film Institute had been founded in 1933 with the mission to promote access to and appreciation for the widest range of world cinema; around the same year, Rudolph Arnheim, a believer in the Gestalt Theory, had published his book Film as Art and cinema was unquestionably accepted as an art form, to be taken seriously, analysed and written about.

BOB DYLAN – OSAKA, APRIL 11, 2016

BOB DYLAN
Sleepy Angel (Osaka 1st Night) [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Festival Hall, Osaka, Japan; April 11, 2016. Very good to excellent audience recording.

On May 20, 2016, Bob Dylan released his 37th studio album, Fallen Angles. Like its predecessor, Shadows In The Night (2015), it’s also a covers album. In a four-star review, Andy Gill of The Independent wrote, “The restrained picking and creamy pedal-steel guitar of his live band imposes a smooth but demotic country mood behind Dylan’s elegant, world-weary croon”. Helen Brown in her five-star review for The Telegraph, also praised Dylan’s vocal abilities on the album, stating, “Although some people have always maintained that Dylan “can’t sing”, the truth is that – like Sinatra – he’s always had a knockout knack for putting a lyric across… Now he inhabits classic lines by songwriters like Johnny Mercer with weathered ease.”

Jafar Pahani might have been banned from making movies for 20 years but that has not stopped the Iranian filmmaker. Using footage from his dashboard-mounted ‘security camera’ and from handphone cameras, Taxi, to quote what one “passenger” said, is Iranian life that is “real but not real real”. By Critic After Dark Noel Vera.

Jafar Pahani’s Taxi (2015) would be remarkable just for existing – it’s the third feature the filmmaker has done since the Iranian government prohibited him from directing and writing for 20 years. (Aside from the ban he may or may not serve a six-year jail sentence – the possibility hangs over his head like a constantly raised ax).

But Pahani doesn’t just leave things there, with a new work; the very form of his film tweaks the ban’s provisions. Can’t make films? Panahi will use the dashboard-mounted ‘security camera’ on the taxi he’s driving, intercut with footage from cellphone cameras whenever necessary.

JOHN CALE AND GUESTS
The Velvet Underground & Nico [no label, 2CD]
Live at La Philharmonie, Paris, France; April 3, 2016. Very good audio (ripped from HDTV webcast).

The album many credit with birthing alternative rock came to life over the weekend at a special collaborative concert in Paris. Every track of the Velvet Underground’s 1967 classic The Velvet Underground & Nico was performed by former band member John Cale, along with a diverse cast of generation-spanning musicians. At the Philharmonie de Paris yesterday (April 3), Cale was joined by the likes of Animal Collective, the Libertines’ Pete Doherty and Carl Barat, Mark Lanegan, Lou Doillon and Etienne Daho. They performed all of the Velvets’ debut LP, in addition to some songs from its follow-up, White Light/White Heat. – Billboard

PAUL McCARTNEY – FRESNO 2016

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Sunday 22 May 2016 at

PAUL McCARTNEY
One On One First Show [Not On Label, 3CD]
Live at the Save Mart Arena, Fresno, CA; April 13, 2016. Fairly good audience recording.

This is more for the fan than for the casual listener. The sound is a bit distant, there is a slight echo, slight “bleeding”, and one wished the sound was much sharper. Interestingly, the sound does recall those early Beatles boots where the screaming (fans) put you in the thick of things. As someone put it: “Finally a record of the first show. Not the best sound but very listenable and enjoyable. A B/B+ rating for this recording but an A+ for highly valuable historical document.”

+ + + + +

rollingstone.com:

Paul McCartney came to Fresno, California, Wednesday night to open his new One on One tour, and delivered nearly three hours of music that moved gracefully from the intimate to the explosive. There were bright lights and stirring images from his history, but the emphasis never drifted from the music, ranging from generational anthems (“Let It Be”) to post-Beatles deep cuts (“Temporary Secretary”).

The night opened with the distinctive guitar clang of the Beatles’ “A Hard Day’s Night” – marking the first time McCartney had performed the song as a solo artist – only the first of more than 35 songs that were faithful to the originals while remaining loose enough to feel fresh. Carrying his old Hofner bass, McCartney and his four-piece band dove into “Can’t Buy Me Love,” as vintage footage of the Beatles rolled on the big screen him: the Fab Four meeting the Queen Mother, recording at Abbey Road and playing their final full concert at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park.

JAZZ ON SUNDAY: GREGORY PORTER – DUSSELDORF 2013

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Sunday 22 May 2016 at

GREGORY PORTER
Dusseldorf 2013 [no label, 1CD]
Live at Tonhalle, Dusseldorf, Germany; November 25, 2013. Very good FM broadcast.

The Brooklyn-based singer with the rich baritone and the ever-present Kangol hat is on a mission to revive old-school musical values… Possessed of massive vocal power offset by a rich tone and delicate control, his interpretations flit between jazz and soul, with the finesse of the former and strength of the latter in equal measure. – Mojo

Porter fuses jazz and soul better than anybody working these days… – Soul Tracks

‘WAS IST SEX’ – DISTURBING CARTOONS GERMANY USES TO TEACH SEX TO REFUGEES

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Sunday 22 May 2016 at

Over the past year, Germany has gone to great lengths in its attempt to culturally integrate the hundreds of thousands of middle-eastern refugees that entered the nation as a result of Angela Markel’s now-defunct overly welcoming immigrant policies.

Just in January, Germany created a leaflet that it handed out to “sexually frustrated” immigrants at local swimming pools to teach them proper poolside etiquette. As reported then, “in Bavaria, swimming pools issued leaflets with simple pictorial instructions on behaviour for migrants who may never have swum in public before. Officials dreamed up the leaflets in 2013 after witnessing an increasing number of ‘problems’ at the city’s 18 public swimming pools. ‘The ground rule of respect for women – whatever clothing they’re wearing – is unfortunately not respected by all our swimmers. That’s why there is an explicit indication about it,’ a Munich city spokesman said.”

BOOKER T AND THE MG’s
New York 1994 [no label, 2CD]
Live at Tramps, New York, NY; July 1, 1994. Very good soundboard.

Those were the days… “One of the hardest soul groups to walk the planet, Booker T and the MG’s are still hard. The rhythm section for some of the greatest musical moments of the 1960s, the band has had a rebirth over the last few years. Shows tonight are at 8:30 and 11:30; the cover is $15.”

It’s not often coming across Booker T soundboards.
