Aretha Louise Franklin (March 25, 1942 – August 16, 2018) R.I.P


Aretha Louise Franklin
(Memphis (Tennessee), 25 maart 1942) is een Afro-Amerikaanse gospel-, soul- en R&B-zangeres


Respect
Als kind zong zij met haar zusters, Carolyn and Erma, in de baptistenkerk waar haar vader dominee was. Haar eerste plaatopnames maakte ze toen ze 14 jaar oud was. Aretha Franklin werd ontdekt door John Hammond en sloot een contract met Columbia Records.



Chains of Fool
Begin jaren zestig maakte ze een paar liedjes die populair werden, met name "Rock-a-bye Your Baby with a Dixie Melody". Op 3 januari 1987 werd zij de eerste vrouw die een plaats kreeg in de Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.


Begin jaren tachtig lijkt het alweer voorbij met haar carrière, totdat ze een cover maakt van de Doobie Brothers-hit 'What A Fool Believes'. Vlak daarna is ze te bewonderen in de klassieke John Belushi-muziekfilm 'The Blues Brothers'. Het duurt daarna nog zeven jaar voordat ze de hitlijsten weer haalt, maar dat doet ze dan ook met de gigantische hit 'I Knew You We're Waiting For Me', een duet met George Michael die wekenlang nummer 1 stond in de Top 40. Het nummer werd geschreven door Simon Climie van Climie/ Fisher. In 1994 zong ze nog 'A Deeper Love' voor de bioscoopkraker Sister Act

Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Lokerse Feesten (14 Aug.2018)

     Foto Arthur
 Een mooie zwoele zomeravond en Neil Young & Crazy Horse op het podium,er zijn mindere avonden te bedenken.Met de programmering van de Lokerse Feesten is er over het algemeen niks mee,zag er al prachtige optreden van o.a Jackson Brown,Robert Plant ,Van Morrison Voor de 40ste editie hadden de organisatoren diep in de buidel getast,desondanks was de avond al maanden van tevoren uitverkocht.(150000  tickets)

                                                Blowin In The Wind

Neil en The Horse stelden niet teleur.Opkomen even een korte groet naar het publiek,inpluggen en spelen.Lange versie van Down By The River gevolg door Powderfinger,de toon was gezet. Crazy Horse speelde met bassist Rick Rosas in de gelederen .Hij verving de door een beroerte getroffen Billy Talbot. Rick speelde al eerder  meerdere malen mee in de bands van Neil Young.Helaas zou later blijken dat het de laatste tour met Neil Young zou zijn.In November overleed Rick Rosas.Rick "Rick the Bass Player" Rosas R.I.P


                                                         Cortez The Killer(fragment)
 De setlist is toch wel verrassend ,het orgeltje van Like A Hurricane hangt hoog in de lucht.Maar als het naar beneden komt geen Hurricane maar Livin With War,ook mooi.

                                                     Heart of Gold

 Onverwacht een uitvoeing Name Of Love (uit het tijdperk met Crosby, Stills & Nash) Blowin’ In The Wind (van Dylan). En natuurlijk  Heart Of Gold  ,massaal meegezongen

                                                  Livin with War

  Het optreden in Lokeren is vooral degelijk en onderhoudend, met de muzikale hoogtepunten vooraan in de set. Het dak mag er uiteindelijk nog even af bij een van zijn minste (maar wel meest populaire) songs: Rockin’ In The Free World. Young geniet en incasseert de bijval na ruim tweeënhalf uur glunderend vanonder zijn hoed. In de toegift mag hij nog even preken en ach, waarom zou die boodschap van Who’s Gonna Stand Up And Safe The Earth niet gemeend zijn? Bovendien blijft vooral zijn lang uitgesponnen gitaarspel – wars van tijd, trends of andere vluchtigheden – een verademing.(OOR)


    Who,s Gonna Stand Up?


                                Het was een heerlijke avond voor mij en alle NY fans....

De Setlist
Down By The River- Powderfinger-Standing In The Light Of Love-Days That Used To Be-
Livin With War-Love To Burn -Name Of Love-Blowin In The Wind -Heart Of Gold-Barstool Blues-
Psychedelic Pill -Cortez the Killer-Rocking In The Freeworld -Be The Rain -Who,s Gonna Stand Up

Neil Young -Tonight,s The Night (Ahoy 24-7-2001)

 

5 Juny is het weer zover,Neil Young & Crazy Horse staan eindelijk weer eens een keer op Nederlandse bodem.Natuurlijk ben ik van de partij,ik kijk er erg naar uit.Het is al weer 12 jaar geleden dat Neil en The Horse hier waren(2001)en in dat jaar waren ze zelfs 2 keer te gast.Beide malen in Ahoy en alle twee keren was ik erbij.De eerste keer was voor Neil zijn doen een wat kort concert,liep niet zo lekker naar mijn idee(b,v Like Hurricane werd niet gespeeld ,het orgeltje werd terug naar boven gestuurd)maar ik gaf het optreden toch een ruime voldoende.Of het een goedmakertje was weet ik niet ,maar onverwacht werd besloten de Europese tour ook in Rotterdam af te sluiten ,en hoe!Een bijna 3 uur durend optreden,Neil en de band in topvorm.alle grote hits kwamen voorbij ,met deze keer wel Like A Hurricane en een lange ,heftige uitvoering.(het klonk dan ook echt als een orkaan)en alle snaren moesten er aan geloven.Twee lange toegiften,de eerste toegift volkomen onverwacht ,Tonight,s The Night ,het nummer over roady Bruce Berry,voor mij dus een"kippenvel"moment...

                Tonight,s The Night.


 Neil Young - vocals,guitar,piano.Frank Sampedro -guitar,vocals.Billy Talbot - bass,vocals.Ralph Molina - drums,vocals.Pegi Young - vocals.Astrid Young -vocals




                                         Bruce Berry

Bruce Berry was a professional roadie for the members of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, both as a group and individually.
He got his start by working at his brother Ken's store SIR (Studio Instrument Rentals) which brought him steady gigs. His happy, charismatic personality endeared him to the group and he was always on the road with them. He used to load all of his instruments into his trademark white Ford Econoline van, until he moved to England to work with Stephen Stills.
Supposedly, when he came back to the USA he was a completely different person. Danny Whitten (of Crazy Horse) had turned him on to heroin and it now controlled his life. One time, he was working for David Crosby when he told everyone that David's car had been broken into and that his beloved Stratocaster had been stolen. However, everyone knew that he was now a junkie and that he had sold the guitar for drugs (but no one knew it was for heroin).[citation needed] Berry died of an overdose of heroin on June 4, 1973, just a few months after Danny Whitten met the same fate. Bruce Berry's story has been immortalized in the lyrics to "Tonight's the Night" by Neil Young.
Bruce Berry is the brother of Jan Berry of Jan and Dean.


"Tonight's The Night"


Tonight's the night,
tonight's the night
Tonight's the night,
tonight's the night
Tonight's the night,
tonight's the night
Tonight's the night,
tonight's the night.

Bruce Berry was a working man
He used to load that Econoline van.
A sparkle was in his eye
But his life was in his hands.

Well, late at night
when the people were gone
He used to pick up my guitar
And sing a song in a shaky voice
That was real as the day was long.

Tonight's the night, yes it is,
tonight's the night
Tonight's the night, yes it is,
tonight's the night.

Early in the mornin'
at the break of day
He used to sleep
until the afternoon.
If you never heard him sing
I guess you won't too soon.

'Cause people let me tell you
It sent a chill
up and down my spine
When I picked up the telephone
And heard that he'd died
out on the mainline.

Tonight's the night,
tonight's the night
Tonight's the night,
tonight's the night.

Bruce Berry was a working man
He used to load that Econoline van.
Well, early in the morning
at just about the break of day
He used to sleep
until the afternoon.

Tonight's the night, yes it is,
tonight's the night
Tonight's the night,
tonight's the night
Tonight's the night,
tonight's the night
Tonight's the night,
tonight's the night.

Bonnie Raitt- OLT Rivierenhof (Antwerpen) 25 Juli 2018



 OLT Rivierenhof in Antwerpen behoort al een aantal jaren tot een van mijn favorite   concertlokaties in Belgie.Een prachtig buitentheater met een uitstekende gevarieerde muziekprogrammering.Twee weken geleden zag ik hier nog Steve Earl en Southside Johnny,deze avond was het de beurt aan Bonnie Raitt.

                                           Everybody Crying Mercy (Mose Allison)

Het moet eind jaren 70,begin jaren 80 zijn geweest dat ik Bonnie Rait voor het eerst zag optreden in Paradiso,ook toen al een geweldig optreden.Tussendoor zag ik haar nog diverse keren optreden,o.a op het North Sea Jazz Festial en het HIBF in Grolloo

                                          Devil Got My Woman (Skip James)
 Met oudgedienden Ricky Fataar (Beach Boys, Crowded House) op de drums en bassist James “Hutch” Hutchinson (al 35 jaar bij Bonnie Raitt) staat er een ritmetandem op het podium om U tegen te zeggen. Voeg daar het gedegen snarenwerk van George Marinelli in samenspel met Raitt’s soepele (slide) gitaarspel én het veelzijdig klavierspel van Jon Cleary (tot in 2009 10 jaar in haar touring band en nu opnieuw van de partij) aan toe en er staat een band op het podium om van te watertanden.(Rootstime)

Het toch wel bijzonder dan Bonnie Raitt al die jaren nog steeds met dezeflde bandleden tourt,John Cleary op keyboard was deze avond de uitzondering.John verzorgde tevens haar voorprogramma.
 Deze tour was in het kader van haar laatste album " Dig In Deep".  Natuurlijk veel werk van dat album maar naturlijk kwamen ook haar klassiekers voorbij.Het werd een mooi feestje van soulvolle rootsmuziek,mede door haar kenmerkende slide-gitaarwerk ,en de interaktie met haar ervaren bandleden.


                                         Angel from Montgomery (John Prine)

 Ik kwam er deze avond achter dat we bijna leeftijdgenoten zijn,Bonnie is van 1949 ik van 1950,het is haar niet aan te zien.Ze heeft het naar haar zin op het podium ,nog steeds een vakvrouw,profesioneel bij elke gitaarlik.Bovendien een erg leuke interaktie met het dankbare publiek.

 

                                      I Can,t Make You Love Me

'Alleen al omdat ik de setlist heb gemaakt, wil nog niet zeggen dat hem zo speel,' vertelde ze.
Ik speel wat in me opkomt....

Tijdens het nummer van Mose Allison, Everybody's Crying Mercy, maakte ze nog een mooi statement met een subtiele nadruk op de regel: "Iedereen huilt vrede op aarde net zolang als we de oorlog winnen." Even krachtig was Angel From Montgomery,alleen solo op gitaar, herschreven ter ere van vrouwen,die soms gescheiden worden van hun kinderen ,en die die niet die kansen krijgen  die we als vanzelfsprekend beschouwen in de wereld.

     Love Sneaking Up On You

Swingende afsluiting van een muzikale topavond.Staande ovatie van het uitverkochte Rivierenhof.
Ik had samen met mijn vele muzikvrienden een heerlijke avond die ons nog lag zal bijblijven.

Ry Cooder plays Bix Beiderbecke - Flashes/In a Mist/Davenport Blues

                              November 16, 1978  "Soundstage" Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A.

 Bix Beiderbecke ,of Davenport,Iowa,learned cornet from some of the earliest jazzrecords and firsthand from the first jazzplayers to come north from New Orleans .By the time of his death in 1931 at 29,he was a legend among his fellow musicians for his beautiful cornet music.But he was also interested in  concert piano and particularly in de impressionistic style that Gershwin later associated with.Davenport Blues,Flashes and In A Mist are represented here in a salon-jazz context that bring out the atmosphere of  Bix,s strange music (Ry Cooder)

     Flashes
 "Flashes" is a 1931 jazz composition for solo piano by cornetist Bix Beiderbecke. The song is the third work in a series of four compositions for piano composed by Bix Beiderbecke during his career.
 Bix Beiderbecke did not record the song himself but copyrighted the composition on April 18, 1931, along with "In the Dark", also a piano work, as "A Modern Composition for the Piano". Bill Challis assisted with the transcription for piano. "Flashes was recorded by jazz pianist Jess Stacy on November 15, 1935. Jazz trumpeter Bunny Berigan recorded the song in 1939 and released it as a 78 single on RCA Victor, 26121-A. In 2010, pianist Bryan Wright recorded the work on piano along with the three other piano compositions by Bix Beiderbecke, "In a Mist", "Candlelight", and "In the Dark".

 In A Mist

 "In a Mist" is a 1927 song composed by Bix Beiderbecke and released as a 78 single on Okeh as a piano solo. The song has become a jazz and pop standard.

"In a Mist" was recorded on September 9, 1927 in New York and released as Okeh 40916 and Vocalion 3150 backed with "Wringin' an' Twistin'" which was recorded with Frankie Trumbauer and Eddie Lang. Bix Beiderbecke played piano on the recording.
Bix Beiderbecke performed the composition on piano accompanied by Roy Bargy and Lennie Hayton at Carnegie Hall on October 7, 1928 at a jazz concert presented by Paul Whiteman.

 Davenport Blues

 Davenport Blues is a 1925 song composed and recorded by Bix Beiderbecke and released as a Gennett 78. The song has become a jazz and pop standard.

 "Davenport Blues" was recorded by Bix Beiderbecke and His Rhythm Jugglers on January 26, 1925, in Richmond, Indiana, and released as Gennett 5654 backed with "Toddlin' Blues" as the A side. The band consisted of Tommy Dorsey on trombone, Paul Madeira Mertz on piano, Don Murray on clarinet, Howdy Quicksell on banjo, Tom Gargano on drums, and Bix Beiderbecke on cornet. The title derives from the name of Bix Beiderbecke's hometown of Davenport, Iowa.

 Jazz is the seventh album by Ry Cooder, produced by Joseph Byrd and Ry Cooder and released on the Warner Bros. Records label.

           Shane Fontayne                Graham Nash                                                        Todd Caldwell.

 Het Amsterdamse Bostheater bleek de ideale prachtige locatie voor het optreden van Graham Nash en zijn vrienden.Ook de af en toe laag overvliegende vliegtuigen konden de pret niet drukken.Graham kan putten uit een uigebreid repertoir,van The Hollies,natuurlijk CSN&Y.en eigen werk.Tussendoor mooie anekdotes over Crosby en het toeren met CSN &Y.en dat allemaal met die karakterstieke stem waar totaal geen sleet op zit.
Een mooie zwoele zomeravond in het Amsterdamse bos.

8 Military Madness   filmed by info4allat 

 “Military Madness” helped to get a lot of things off my chest. England had been bombed by the Germans, and when I moved to America I realized that the same issues were going on in Vietnam. The battle was raging, and I wanted to say something about the madness of the military agenda waging preemptive war – which is what happened later in Iraq and Afghanistan.(Graham Nash)

 12 Lady of the Island   filmed by Arthur

 "Lady of the Island" is a folk song written by Graham Nash in the late 1960s. The song appears on Crosby, Stills & Nash's critically acclaimed, self-titled debut album. The song is notable for taking its inspiration from fellow folk musician Joni Mitchell, with whom Nash was romantically involved at the time. Although the album contains another love song to Mitchell, David Crosby's "Guinnevere", Nash told Mojo magazine in April 2009 that this potentially tricky situation did not create any problems. He explained: "The way that we went about our lives did not entail jealousy and it didn't entail raging about somebody being with somebody else's woman. Me and David and Joan didn't think anything of it, that's for sure.


13 Just a song before i Go     filmed by info4allat 

 "Just a Song Before I Go" is a song by Crosby, Stills and Nash that appeared on the 1977 album CSN.

The song was written by Graham Nash about leaving loved ones behind before going on a concert tour. It was written in Hawaii in about 20 minutes at the piano while Nash and Leslie Morris were staying with a friend, waiting for the rain to stop before leaving the house. The opening line came from the question: "You've got half an hour, why don't you just write a song before you go?"[1]

14   4+20   filmed by Arthur
 Déjà Vu is the second album by trio Crosby, Stills & Nash, and their first as a quartet with Neil Young. It was released in March 1970 by Atlantic Records, catalogue SD 7200. It topped the pop album chart for one week and generated three Top 40 singles: "Woodstock", "Teach Your Children", and "Our House". It was re-released in 1977 as SD-19188 and the cover was changed from black to brown. In 2003, the album was ranked #148 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Certified septuple platinum by RIAA, the album's sales currently sit at over 8 million copies. It remains the highest-selling album of each member's career to date.

                                    15 Golden Days - 16 Missippi Burning -17 Back Home

This Path Tonight is the new studio album and collection of 10 original songs from Graham Nash. Produced by Shane Fontayne, this is Nash's first solo record of new music in fourteen years.

It is currently the trio configuration's best selling record, outselling 1969's Crosby, Stills & Nash by 200,000 copies.[4] It has been certified quadruple platinum by RIAA.[5]
 

20 Our House (Deja Vu) filmed by Arthur

    Van Morrison plays Astral Weeks/Sweet Things (06-July-2018)

     THE sweet sounds of legendary Van Morrison chilled the hot summer crowd at Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod in a sell out concert.
    One of the most prolific recording artists and live performers in music history, Sir Van Morrison, took to the Royal International Pavilion stage on Friday night, captivating the crowd with a myriad of Irish folk, jazz, blues and country music.
    Morrison opened the show with a beautiful rendition of Astral Weeks, then launched straight into Sweet Thing. Both songs were released from the album of the same name 50 years ago in 1968, yet still resonate perfectly today and brought the audience to their feet

    Joined by his eight-piece band, including his musical director, Paul Moran, Morrison barely drew breath for the following 90 minutes. This was his first appearance at the International Eisteddfod and he enchanted the entire pavilion with his largely improvised set, featuring favourites including Baby Please Don’t Go, Days Like This and Have I Told You Lately.
    Morrison brought the show to a close and the audience to their feet with an exhilarating rendition of cult classic Brown Eyed Girl.
    Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod Music director, Vicky Yannoula, said: “The audience was completely enthralled by Van’s unparalleled vocals and song writing talent, and by the support of his exquisite band. It was such a mesmerising performance and a wonderful start to our weekend.”
