This version of "Gentle on My Mind" is one of the very best music videos on YouTube:

Wasn't he great? Glad I was lucky enough to enjoy his fiddle playing, banjo playing,fancy footwork and sly humor a few times in a couple of local small clubs.

Thanks,

Since we have a few Ry Cooder fans out there, here are The Moula Banda Rhythm Aces from the Les Blank movie of the same name, laying down one of the greasiest grooves ever invented, Down In Hollywood. Featuring Flaco, Terry Evans, Bobby King, Jim Keltner. Dig how Ry makes his slide solo sound like a tenor sax on that strat with the legendary Tesico Del Rey gold foil pickup:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_kbGttueAY

[I would guess this may not be on youTube for long, Cooder never wanted the movie released in the US for reasons that totally elude me. I was grinning from ear to ear for the whole song]

Hi all,
I posted this one over on facebook, but I think it's important to see and hear this one and to realize that anyone could do what Dave McKenna routinely did:  improvise like a great horn player while simultaneously comping chords in the middle register and walking an improvised bass line like a great bass player (NOT a repeating boogie figure), switch tempos seamlessly, go into Stride, et al.  I think he's the hardest swinging pianist ever, what an engine, and when I hear him I always feel as though the guitar is a kind of nice little toy.  Anyway--

This is bluesy, both in title and music, but it's a lot more besides. Hoagy Carmichael doing Hong Kong Blues with a spiffy little band, from the film To Have And Have Not.

I love how the 'oriental' tenor banjo, mandolin, fiddle and percussion parts meld with the jazz / ragtime / minor blues idioms,  it covers a lot of ground. Somebody's tapping on a bottle at some point I just noticed.

I've been obsessed with the song for the last week figuring it out for guitar, including some of the oriental licks and all the changes. It's actually an incredible piece when you start to dig into it and a real challenge to learn and big fun to play when you have it down.

According to the YouTube page it's from a film called "Le Reel Du Pendu" (Hangman's Reel) and there are some other clips, one of McGee with Bois-Sec Ardoin and one of Isom Fontenot playing the harmonica. Not sure what else is there but that's what I saw last night. I sure hope there's more footage of the two of them. I also suspect that the place where the McGee/Courville bit was filmed was the same furniture store Dewey Balfa worked in (owned?) but I'd have to check on that "Cajun Visits" DVD to be sure.

I'm sure you've already checked out YouTube for "Dennis McGee" and "Le Reel du Pendu", but don't forget to also search for "J'ai ete au bal" on YouTube and elsewhere. You'll see a couple of clips from Dennis, as well as Canray Fontenot and Bois Sec Ardoin. Only problem is that the film by the same name has a lot of clips that aren't allowed to play out to the end.

If you haven't seen the Les Blank film by the same name, go find a copy.

Even better, fly down to Evangeline Parish and hear some of that stuff on your own, spring and fall are the best times for festivals, summer's too hot. Find a VFW or American Legion hall that's sponsoring a Saturday night dance, they're closest to the original Cajun style.

The following is not from the film, but it shows Bois Sec and Canray in their musical prime:

Ah, the actual title turned up results at the NFB. You can watch the entire film (57 min) online at http://www.nfb.ca/film/reel_du_pendu/  (in French). There is a bit more footage of McGee and Courville at around the 50 min mark. I've just skipped through so far but watching the last 7 minutes of the film at that point is pretty great.

P.S. I realize the title is longstanding, but I think that it would be more accurately rendered in English as The Hanged Man's Reel.  Which is kind of a different image. :D

Ah this brings back memories. In 1991 I attended the 2nd Basingstoke Blues Festival. To be frank I found most of the acts boring and predictable with the exception of Angelina & The Cornbabies, an act from the Isle of Wight. They were playing good old fashioned acoustic country blues with more than a hint of Bessie Smith about the vocal. Two years later I went to the Onslow in Southampton to see an advertised duo of Angelina and J.C. who I'd never heard of before. Wrong...it was the same Angelina duetting with her brother John-Claude. Fantastic evening's entertainment. I've often wondered what became of them. Thanks to PP I now know.

Here's a video of me playing a tune of mine, "The Singing Moon", with two wonderful Argentine tango dancers, Patricio Touceda and Eva Lucero.  The film was produced by a friend and former student of mine, David Paris, and it was his idea to do the film.  I hope you enjoy it.

Fabulous! And Cheryl agrees.

We play "Maria Elena Waltz" as an accordion / guitar duet. I had not heard "The Singing Moon" before and it struck me immediately that this song is a second cousin to "Maria Elena" so I have at least a shot at figuring it out. Consider it covered at some point, to the best of our abilities.

Thanks for the good words, guys.  I know what you mean, John D.  One of the things I especially like about Eva and Patricio's dancing is their tenderness and affection and flow.  It's not at all the standard-issue competition-type tango dancing, with ultra-stylized very rigid movements, no eye contact, communicating a sort of "we're horny strangers" type of message.  I love their sweetness with each other.
All best,
Johnm

I agree completely Johnm,  not showy, just very relaxed and natural - it's like being a fly on the wall, are somehow privy to an intimate moment with them.

And not to take away form your great composition Johnm, (I can report at least some video success - I ordered the CD :D ) but I assume they are dancers from the Seattle area?  And does she have a boy friend? (just kidding on that last one)
Title: Re: Other Musical Interests on YouTube
Post by: Johnm on December 28, 2011, 12:32:06 PM
Hi John D.,
Both dancers are originally from Argentina and at the time the video was made, around 10 years ago, they both resided in Seattle and were dance instructors there.  I don't know if they're still living there, but I haven't heard otherwise.  I can probably find out.
All best,
Johnm

Slack, different dances seem to go through cycles of being popular, but the tango craze that started in the 80s just seems to get bigger and bigger, with no end in sight. I'll bet there's a teacher in El Paso who can show you enough so that when you meet Eva in person, you'll be ready.

(For a while, Port Townsend had two live tango bands, both with the same bandoleon player. It is rare for a city 20 times its size to have even one.)

Lindy, I have in fact taken Argentinian dance lessons, but not many.  It was difficult to get that timing, to dance that slow, pauses etc.  I suppose I really did not get it either. 

John, I must admit I do not spend much time at all cruising youtube - but I'm sorry I've missed this video!

Well, that does it.  It's obvious I just need to move to the northwest.

The story I heard was that a group of Kenyans were conscripted by the British army to fight in World War II, and they transferred the music normally played on 9-string lyres to the Spanish guitars they had access to. The result was something that is now called benga. The musician in this video, Olima Anditi, is from the post-WWII generation; he had some commercial success in the 60s and 70s. Similar to the way that young enthusiasts tracked down country blues players in the American South, a group of young Kenyans recently tracked down Olima.

Check out his right hand, he's holding a really large pick on his thumb, it looks like it might be connected to the pick that he's using the play the treble notes.

Loved the Snooks vid also, the Ray Charles of the guitar. His right hand technique is hypnotizing.

Here's a nice ragtime guitar piece composed by Dakota Dave Hull in memory of a fine musician who died a few years back, Bill Hinkley. If I were a better guitarist, I could pick up some licks from it.

Here's a French-Canadian guitarist I really love.
He only plays his own compositions, which are all played out of drop-G tuning, and always uses his trademark 'brush-stroke'.
Even his slow pieces have a great swing feel.
His playing looks easy but it isn't (I tried...)

Here's another one of my favorite guitarists : John James
In 1972 he recorded with Pete Berryman an instrumental guitar duet album called "Sky In My Pie"; it became a cult-album among fingerpickers.
After 42 years they reunited and recorded one of the selections of that album.
Fine, inventive and relaxed picking.

Heard Jean Emilien from Madagascar tonight on KUT Austin World Music show and had to track something down to post here.

The man plays great understated diatonic harmonica as a lead instrument within the African music context. This clip is amped up and slightly overproduced(!) but stick with it and check out the instrumentation. Let's see we have 4 row button accordion swapping solos with a fabulous harp player, several weird instruments I don't recognize and everyone having a really good time. I hear a lot of different stuff in there, particularly what struck me as cajun sounds:

Yup, I agree, Phil.  I saw this band a couple of times around twenty years ago, first at the Vancouver Folk Festival, where their set blew everybody's doors off.  I literally took about twenty-four hours to come down from the excitement of their set.  As is apparent, they are all ultra-virtuosos.  Unfortunately, the bass player is not hot enough in the mix in the clip--he can and does play many of the super-fast, complex melodic lines in unison and harmony with the horns and accordion--how, I can't imagine.  The drummer is a monster, too.  If you listen to the clip a couple of times and just focus on him, he's changing up all the time, with tremendous dynamics.
I would love to see this band perform with dancers some time, because, hard as it is to believe, they are playing dance music.  I would love to have seen them on "American Bandstand" sometime.
All best,
Johnm

A track on a sampler CD that comes free with UK magazine "R2" has really caught my attention. It's a version of Bob Dylan's "Mississippi" by highly respected Scottish performer, Rab Noakes.

On this video he sports a "proper" Gibson, but on the recorded version (which you can find on his website - rabnoakes.com) he seems to be playing a Kalamazoo KG-11.

Noakes is a fine guitarist and blessed with a great voice.

In particular - I'm really enjoying discovering what older Black fiddle music remains. Saw an old thread where Johnm mentioned this excellent modern player and was taken back to seeing this intense combo in '82 or so. Really love these guys and now think of Peg Leg Howell and Eddie Anthony when I hear it....  :)

Blood Ulmer - Charles Burnham, and Warren Benbow -

This comes close to seeing the band live - there is uncanny chemistry between the three of them. They never rehearse, but just turn up and play gigs when all are available.

Quite right Carl - Liam plays or has played with the likes of Steeleye Span, Paul Brady, Gerry Rafferty, Penguin Caf? Orchestra, Richard & Linda Thompson and many more besides. He is equally at home playing blues, modern jazz, folk-rock or any other genre you can think of. He is amazing to watch live and you cannot believe some of the rhythms he creates. Bassist Colin keeps it simple for country blues, but is also capable of more elaborate playing in other musical scenarios.

Glad you liked it.

  Hey guys while i was surfing youtube i came across a great clip from the 60s of Tapio Rautavaara playing this  beautiful finnish piece. Ive been trying to figure out the guitar part he plays but it is so different sounding than most western music and blues stuff i try to figure out. I have tuned my guitar down a half step to match his pitch playing out of a minor. its seems like hes just doing little base lines mostly but i was wondering if maybe he is using a different tuning all together? Beautiful though i thought i might as well share video with you guys because it is really awesome. cheers!

Hi crustypicker,
He is playing out of A minor position in standard tuning, though he may be low.  He's doing boom-chang back-up with moving bass lines, as you said.

Since Ryland P. Cooder's name has come up recently, and it's Saturday night, I thought I'd share this, which, having seen it for the first time 5 minutes ago (so I've had a lot of time to think about it) I regard as close to perfection for a live performance involving electric guitar and conjunto accordion.

I really like the timing here, the changes are perfect no matter how crazy things get. It's nice to watch musical telepathy in action, and nobody messes up their solo either. It's also a primer on how to fingerpick a strat. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I dunno why it doesn't embed, just click on the link.

I'm glad you enjoyed Teddy's playing on that cut, Lastfirstface, and I couldn't agree more about his solo playing.  One thing really impressive to me about the cut is that it is 3:11 long, and he is not coming anywhere near to running out of ideas by the end--he sounds like he could keep playing until sometime next week and still be hitting fresh ideas.

In answer to those who asked about hearing Karen Dalton,
I knew her slightly in the late sixties, early seventies. She was the ex wife of a close friend, and also a terrific songwriter named Richard Tucker.
As with many musicians she was better live than on vinyl imho. Katie Cruel is a really great cut though. An Interesting, complicated and very alluring woman.

JohnM, I'm also a big Jessie Winchester fan. Excellent songwriter and singer. I saw him live once at a place called the Speakeasy on McDougal St., and in between sets he found a quiet place to sit and read a book! I looked at that and thought, wow I wish I had had the presence of mind to have done that rather than swilling away between sets at the Kettle of Fish! Although that also had its rewards.

I'm so sorry to hear that Ornette has died.  He was one of my biggest musical heros, a wonderful composer and player and a big spirit.  To invent a new way of hearing and playing music--that's a really big thing to do, and he did it.  The coherence and sense of his approach is reflected in the playing of so many present-day musicians who speak comfortably in his musical language.  What a sound he had!  I've heard him play solos that sounded as though he was expressing everything in life.  I will miss just knowing he was out there somewhere, hearing what he heard and expressing it as he felt it.  Thank you for letting us know, Phil, though it is sure sad news.

1987 Vancouver Jazz Festival, Commodore Ballroom, Sunday night end-of-festival headline performance, the only chance I got to see Ornette Coleman live.

The band consisted of two drummers, two bassists (one electric, one back-and-forth electric and acoustic), Ornette on his white plastic sax, and a tabla player from India.

There's a Buddhist meditation practice called shamatha, or concentration. When I get into conversations about the idea of concentration, I sometimes think about those two bass players. They had to focus on Ornette's chordal changes, which could come at any moment and go in any direction. Those guys were sweatin' buckets with the effort. If they missed any, I sure didn't notice.

There's a quote on the quote generator from Muddy Waters, something like "Don't hear the changes, *feel* the changes." A challenge when playing with Mr. Coleman.

What a night, a transformative experience listening to someone completely in control of his unique art.

I had the pleasure of visiting the Harare International Festival of the Arts earlier this year, and I was amazed at the fingerpicking prowess of Derek Gripper, from South Africa.

His specialty is performing songs normally played on a 21-string kora on a six-string guitar. As is the case in many of his renditions, he has three things going on most most of the time, bass line, rhythm line, and variations on melody.

Here's an example, a "standard" in West African kora playing called "Jiarabi."

That takes me right back to Hy Lit, and WIBG radio 99, Johnm. I think growin' up in the Philly area we had an extra dose of this music. Not saying it wasn't popular elsewhere, but in Philly, it just seemed to dominate the AM radio in the decade before the British Invasion, and held it's own for sometime afterward.

Thanks for the memory jolt.

Great stuff, brings back memories.  We used to dance (in the late 70's) to a mix known as "Kevin's Party Tapes" which had a bunch of this old soul stuff.  This group of Austin friends was still dancing to these tapes in 2014... I was there to witness and to also pull a leg muscle trying to get fancy.  Kevin had transferred the whupped cassettes to CD - they sounded terrible, but didn't matter.

This weekend a friend and I watched "Improvisation," a film that Norman Granz produced in the 1950s (with Charlie Parker, Lester Young, and Coleman Hawkins sadly lip-synching their performances because the studio wasn't sound-proofed sufficiently to record them live), plus some clips from the 60s and 70s tacked on.

This is the one that really caught my ear: Joe Pass.

Hi all,
Here are Chick Corea and Gary Burton performing a tune of Chick's, "Armando's Rhumba".  Chick starts out on vibraphone, which is not even his primary instrument.  Gary joins in and they hit the main theme at 2:14.  Man, are they having fun!  I think what Gary Burton can do with two mallets is amazing, but two in each hand is completely incomprehensible.

That "someone" is your ol' buddy Stuart, Lindy. Dennis has been out here a couple of times, playing with Greg Ruby's band, The Rhythm Runners. When I saw them last May at Washington Hall in Seattle, I got there early and was sitting on the front porch when Dennis and Charlie Halloran walked up with their mitts--they had been playing catch in Wisteria Park, which isn't a bad way to warm up for a gig. Charlie is a trombone player based in NOLA. Paul de Barros also came by. Paul is the author of Jackson Street After Hours: The Roots of Jazz in Seattle. Greg first learned of Frank Waldron from reading Paul's book.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AGxbSmMrwA

http://gregrubymusic.com/bands/the-rhythm-runners/

After the initial Syncopated Classic CD release and tour, Greg put together a folio that contains reproductions of the original sheet music as well as a book with the music in updated form and an expanded essay about Frank Waldron by Paul and Greg that includes photos. Greg also had Jacob Zimmerman and Dalton Ridenhour record the music in the way it might have sounded at Frank Waldron's place back in the day.

Hi all,
Some of the most enjoyable things on YouTube for me in recent years have been the videos posted by the amazing young Finnish Jazz guitarist, Teemu Viinikainen.  Here is his version of Ray Charles' hit, "Crying Time":

https://youtu.be/yG-_rnHzvyc 

Here is his play-along with Kenny Kirland's piano solo on "When The World Is Running Down".  If I didn't see him do it, I would never have believed it possible.  It isn't just the execution, it's the memory involved, too!  And the industry--I don't care how gifted you are, you can't play like that without working and working for years.

Old Crow Medicine Show was one of the most exciting modern old timey bands of recent years, and Willie Watson provided the high harmonies that lifted them out of the mud.

Celso Machado, a wonderful Brazilian guitarist, lives a couple of hours north of me in Vancouver, B.C., so I've had the good fortune of seeing him several times. For a long time I did not know that he has an equally talented brother named Filo. Here's Filo with his grandson, looks to be around 11 or 12 in this vid, obviously blessed with Machado guitar genes.

This obituary caught my eye this afternoon, and I clicked on the accompanying YouTube vid of this alto sax player's 100th birthday party.

He was the organizer of an amateur gathering of jazz musicians that met every Tuesday at noon at some restaurant in Manhattan. He had to shut down the gig in 2011, but he made sure to get his friends together for one more session for his birthday.

Watch it all if you have 8 minutes to spare; if not, at least check out his solo at :36, then again at about 6:05.

100!

Love this! Hedy is playing a longneck banjo capoed up. I do it in sawmill tuning on a regular OT banjo and have no clue how she's tuned but love the playing and vocalizing. What a great groove and backbeat she has.

Hi Rivers,
Thanks for posting the Hedy West version of "Little Sadie".  She used the same tuning as you do, but it's neat to hear the song done with a different melody than the more familiar one that Tom Ashley, Doc Watson and many others have used.  Wade Ward recorded an instrumental version on which he played fiddle that had a different and very cool melody--different from either the familiar version or Hedy West's.  It transfers well to the banjo, too.
All best,
Johnm

Post by: Rivers on August 09, 2018, 04:06:52 AM
Thanks John for the tuning, I'll listen out for that Wade Ward version you mention. Hedy's version has piqued my interest in playing longneck banjo, I've never tried.
Title: Re: Other Musical Interests on YouTube
Post by: Lastfirstface on August 10, 2018, 05:45:45 AM
I don't think Hedy West is using sawmill. She's playing it out of the tuning Hobart Bailey used, which is dDGAD. She's capoed up to what would be the fourth fret on a standard banjo and has the drone string tuned down a half-step to f#, the resulting tuning being f#F#BC#F# playing out of the key of F#. The first and fifth string are tuned to the same note. Watch how she lands on the "home position" of fretting the third string at the second fret.
Title: Re: Other Musical Interests on YouTube
Post by: Johnm on August 10, 2018, 06:23:58 AM
Thanks for the catch, Pete.  You are certainly right.  Does she ever play the fifth string in this rendition?  Sometimes she rests her thumb on the string, but I can't hear or see her play it.
All best,
Johnm
Title: Re: Other Musical Interests on YouTube
Post by: Lastfirstface on August 10, 2018, 07:08:02 AM
Hard to say if she catches the fifth string, her thumb just seems to float around it! The sound of it could be blending in with the unison-tuned first string, but definitely seems to be avoiding the drone string in general.

Here's a video that demonstrates Mark Knopfler can do a good Blind Blake and Willie McTell impersonation. He also does a very good summary of various guitars and what they're good for, and developing out of simple I-IV-V into chord melody.

This would be a video I would recommend to any enthusiastic young guitarist just starting out. Don't get me wrong, I've always loved his playing, I had no idea it went this deep.

Thanks, John--That's a good one for sure. Like many of us in the U.S., my only exposure to Lulu was to her Top 40 hits in the sixties. But when I lived in Taiwan and did transcriptions and translations for Taiwan Television, one of the shows I worked on was "Let's Rock!," which prominently featured Lulu (as well as many other talented artists). I was very, very impressed by her talents. "Let's Rock!" was a Jack Good production for teenagers in the UK and beyond. The MC doing the intro for the famous Howlin' Wolf appearance on Shindig! is Jack Good.

An interesting song by British "indie rock" band, the Wave Pictures. The subject matter will be familiar to Weenies. The guitar style is straight out of Africa. The band's guitarist David Tattersall is a very good fingerpicker in the style of Rev. Davis, John Hurt, Fahey, etc. and has released an LP of acoustic guitar instrumentals called "Little Martha" (that Allman Bros. tune being one of the tracks).

It might be a bit too quirky for some folks, but I have come to like it.

Davy Graham was arguably the acoustic guitarist who "started it all". Subsequent star players all looked up to him. I once saw him on a train from London to Leeds in the early 1970s, but I suppose I was too shy to talk to him, and he was already engaged in conversation with an elderly lady who clearly did not know who he was. This was at a time when not many people would have recognised him, but being a guitar nerd I did.

Someone asked about fans of Hank Williams on Weenie ... the only reason I haven't been a fan as long as Front Page is that he's older. Hank *was* a great performer, but what keeps me in constant awe about him is his songwriting talent, noticeable in a long long list of cover recordings made by other musicians over the decades.

The shaky start, what with the band having various tuning issues, was making me n-n-n-nervous...

It gets way better after the half way point I reckon. I Got A Woman got cut off way too soon, I Ask For Water & Killin' Floor are good. I wanna see the whole footage of the band, maybe cut the barroom chat to the end of the video or actually just cut it entirely.

Man that piano sure needed tuning, and the bass player must have had trouble hearing himself to be so sharp. Anyway, glad I saw it, thanks.
