Amsterdam 2015 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the World Minimal Music Festival, Muziekgebouw aan het IJ, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; April 8, 2015. Very good webcast.

Minimal music is a music style that originated in downtown New York in the ’60s. The sounds are of a constant work in process that encourages the listener to focus on the internal processes of the music, which generally has a steady pulse with gradual transformations, without a conventional build-up or goal. Terry Riley has long been seen as a pioneer of the minimalist school of music.

A Rainbow In Curved Air, an enormously influential composition from the quintessential Summer Of Love, is performed by Lunatree. [It’s faintly reassuring to hear Riley’s summer-of-love utopianism… just as his sleevenotes to 1969’s Rainbow In Curved Air fantasise of a day when “the Pentagon was turned on its side and painted purple, yellow & green”, here his words (“look to the skies and dream; why commute to work underground?”) reject urbanisation and long for a pre-industrial bucolic idyll. Ironically, Riley’s music is as joyously futuristic as ever. –]

As part of Terry Riley’s appearance at Amsterdam’s Muziekgebouw for the World Minimal Music Festival, he premiered Children Of Gaz, a piece specially composed for the festival, performed by Gregory Charette (Conductor), Gwyneth Wentink (Harp), Janne Rättyä (Accordion), William Knight (Tenor) and Nieuw Amsterdams Jeugdkoor (Choir).

Riley’s seminal composition, In C, is performed by Stargaze.

Glastonbury 2015 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Pyramid Stage, Worthy Farm, Pilton, UK; June 27, 2015. Very good audio, ripped from HD webcast.

Normally, one does not expect any tension in a Burt Bacharach show. But the tension on stage is probably unintentional though palpable – every one is concerned that something might just happen to the 87-year-old master tunesmith.

As The Guardian pointed out, there was little to dislike about Bacharach’s performance (it was a career-spanning set, which was what fans expected): the sun was blazing, the picnic carpets were covered in lazy-limbed families who’d plonked themselves down for the rest of the day, bathing in the romantic, rose-tinted glow of the easy-listening king.

Watched by the likes of Paloma Faith, Adele, Will Young and Daisy Lowe, the master songwriter lost some of the audience in the smulchy, lounge section at the end, but if there was one thing Saturday afternoon at this festival needed, it was some sweet familiarity before Kanye polarised the Pyramid stage.

Lucca 2015 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Lucca Summer Festival, Piazza Napoleone, Lucca, Italy; July 20, 2015. Very good FM broadcast.

Lauryn Hill made her name as a member of the Fugees and had a hit with her 1998 album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. Since then her career had been patchy – dropping out or self-imposed exile and sporadic touring and recording. In 2012, she pled guilty to tax evasion for failure to pay federal income taxes and, in 2013, served a three-month prison sentence. In May 2015, Hill canceled her scheduled concert outside Tel Aviv in Israel following a social media campaign from activists promoting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign.

Hill contributed her voice to the soundtrack for the 2015 documentary, What Happened, Miss Simone? She was originally supposed to record only two songs for the record, but ended up recording six. On July 30, 2015, she is scheduled to appear on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Listening to Hill at the Lucca Summer Festival, sounds like Hill is “back” in fine form. Check out Final Hour and she can rap with the best of them.

Franz Ferdinand And Sparks
Spain 2015 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Recinto de Festivales, Benicassim, Spain; July 19, 2015. Very good digital satellite broadcast.

When slick Scottish rockers Franz Ferdinand met Californian pop veterans Sparks in 2004 they immediately clicked and worked on a couple of songs. They were shelved until a couple of years ago when a chance meeting brought the bands back together. [in March 2015, it was announced that the band had formed a supergroup with Sparks under the name FFS. The self-titled FFS album was released on June 9, 2015.] With a career spanning nearly five decades, Sparks are no strangers to working with other artists, as they have most notably recorded songs with French pop group Rita Mitsouko and Japanese electro-pop combo Pizzicato Five. –

The fact that Hollywood has whitewashed Middle Eastern and African history since its early beginnings, and without interruption only reinforces the view that racial difference is entirely redundant; and creates a narrative fit for a world that has cleansed black men from the story of Troy and insists the Pharaohs were white. By Alan McCluskey.

The charge that Hollywood whitewashes historical figures “of colour” is now so widely accepted as to barely require proof. From John Wayne playing Genghis Khan to Elizabeth Taylor starring as Cleopatra, Western films have honoured the tradition with almost unerring fidelity. I say almost because a few select roles are ring-fenced for non-white actors, such as Shakespeare’s Othello – the black “Moor” who murders his white wife in a fit of jealous rage.

Much to the approval of Rupert Murdoch, Ridley Scott’s epic film Exodus: Gods and Kings presents Eighteenth Dynasty Egypt as a kingdom governed by Anglo-Saxon and Celtic warriors: white Australian Joel Edgerton plays the role of Ramses II, while the white Briton Christian Bale plays Moses.

Brooklyn 2015 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Celebrate Brooklyn! Performing Arts Festival, Prospect Park Bandshell, Brooklyn, NY; July 18, 2015. Very good FM broadcast (very slight hiss).

American folksinger Rhiannon Giddens is also known as the lead singer, violinist, banjo player and a founding member of the Grammy-winning country, blues and old-time music band Carolina Chocolate Drops. In February 2015, she released her debut solo album, Tomorrow Is My Turn, produced by T-Bone Burnett. On Lost On The River, the 2014 album based on newly unearthed Bob Dylan lyrics, Rhiannon Giddens sang her own ballad, Angel City. “She’s poised to cross over,” Bonnie Raitt has said of the Greensboro, N.C.-born singer. “There’s nothing about her that wouldn’t appeal to anyone, in any genre.”

Acclaimed Hong Kong filmmaker Scud makes a lacklustre visit to the city of premature death in Voyage (2013), a place between heaven and hell where everyone trades in grief. Stephen Tan reviews.

For the sake of a simple comparison, if Wong Kar-Wai is seen as Hong Kong’s Kurosawa (though a more adult version), then Scud is probably Hong Kong’s version of Nagisa (In The Realm Of The Senses) Oshima. For a start, viewers can expect full (male and female) nudity in a Scud film. The sex – again, whether it’s hetero or gay, is both honest and brutal. And a deep sense of longing has long been a part of the Scud landscape.

Explaining the idea behind the Voyage (2013), Scud’s fifth movie, the director behind such cult classics as Permanent Residence (2009) and Love Actually… Sucks! (2011) said that it “originated from my own thoughts about suicide. One time, I had thought about walking into the central Australian desert until I am exhausted and die in a miserable way.”

New Orleans 2015 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, New Orleans Fair Grounds
New Orleans, LA; April 25, 2015. Very good FM broadcast.

Billie Holiday would have been 100 this year. Here is another Billie Holiday tribute, this time from vocalist Cassandra Wilson.

Cassandra Wilson showed that New Orleans Jazz Fest could still be a credible venue for ambitious, exploratory artists to share their musical passions. The singer offered her fans – and many newcomers – an incantatory, blues-haunted look at the legacy of Billie Holiday, expanding on the work documented in her just-released recording, Coming Forth By Day.

France 2015 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Théatre de Verdure, Nice, France; July 7, 2015. Very good FM broadcast.

Often referred to as a jazz singer for the hip-hop generation, New York City-based vocalist Jose James combines jazz, soul, drum ‘n’ bass, and spoken word into his own unique brand of vocal jazz. While he states his main influences as John Coltrane, Marvin Gaye, and Billie Holiday, his sound on early 12-inch singles and in live performances brought to mind such icons of ’70s jazz-soul as Terry Callier, and his music felt more like an update of the fluid crossover approach of Gil Scott-Heron, while also being distinctly his own. – wikipedia

In March 2015, James released Yesterday I Had The Blues: The Music of Billie Holiday, a tribute to the legendary singer in honor of Holiday’s 100th birthday. “My first clear musical memory is of Billie Holiday,” writes James in the album’s liner notes. “Billie’s voice floated through our house – grand, warm, intimate, and wholly unique… I rediscovered Billie during a difficult period of my teenage years. As much as I loved Nirvana, De La Soul, and A Tribe Called Quest, her music spoke to me on a much deeper level. Her work was mastery – of pain, of trauma, of faith in music and the power of transformation. I had found my teacher. Billie Holiday made me want to be a jazz singer and set me on the path that I’m walking today.”
