De legendarische Braziliaanse zanger en gitarist João Gilberto is op 88-jarige leeftijd gestorven. Dat heeft zijn familie zaterdag via Facebook gemeld. Gilberto staat bekend als de grondlegger van de bossanova.
“Mijn vader is gestorven. Zijn strijd was nobel. Hij probeerde zijn waardigheid te bewaren, terwijl hij zijn zelfstandigheid verloor”, aldus zijn zoon João Marcelo Gilberto. Volgens nieuwssite G1 overleed Gilberto zaterdag op 88-jarige leeftijd thuis in Rio de Janeiro.
De muzikant staat bekend als de vader van de bossanova, een mix van jazz en samba. Hoewel hij het genre niet heeft uitgevonden, was het pas toen hij in 1958 in de scene startte, dat bossanova echt doorbrak. Hij scoorde wereldwijde hits, zoals zijn versie van ‘The Girl from Ipanema’. De Braziliaan verkocht miljoenen exemplaren van zijn plaat met de Amerikaanse saxofonist Stan Getz en won in 1965 een Grammy voor album van het jaar.

I have known Shawn as a stellar performer as a guitarist for quite some time (having recorded with him before) and every time I hear him it is a pure joy! This latest recording, "Symmetricity" is sure to be a sought after recording by all jazz enthusiasts and musicians alike!

- Chip McNeill (Maynard Ferguson, Arturo Sandoval, Jazz Division Chair/University of Illinois)

Just Lookin’ with the Robert Jospe Express featuring John D’earth on trumpet was recorded and mixed in 2018 by Mark Graham at The Sound in Charlottesville, Virginia and mastered by Dave Darlington in NYC. The new release is Robert’s follow up recording to his 2014 double CD “Classics”/ “Doin ‘ It Up”. “Classics” featured the trio with Butch Taylor on keys and Dane Alderson on bass and “Doin’ It Up” features the quartet with Brian Mesko on guitar.

Evil Invaders may sound notoriously tech-loving yet astoundingly raw on record – but if you unleash these Belgians onstage, their trademark sound nestled in between death, thrash, progressive touches and trad heavy metal gains another heady and exciting dimension that is second to none. After two studio albums and two EPs released to date, the time has finally come to immortalize the incredible high-octane live phenomenon in sound and vision: Surge of Insanity - Live in Antwerp 2018 is the expected balls-out hometown insanity, taped at the Trix Zaal in 2018, and set for release on October 4th 2019 with powerhouse label Napalm Records!
“On October 4th we will finally release our live album + DVD, 'Surge Of Insanity: Live in Antwerp 2018'! From day one, our goal has always been to distinguish ourselves musically as well as visually in our live performances.” frontman Joe comments.
“We're always striving to create new and unique visual aspects to our show. It was massive to play with a full production at the venue where we all used to go to see our favorite bands since we were teenagers. This live album + DVD marks the end of an old and the beginning of a new era for Evil Invaders. We're just getting started...”
In addition we're releasing another slice of what's coming; one of our favorite tracks ‘Broken Dreams In Isolation’ with a live video, taken from the DVD.

Geronimo Black “Freak Out Phantasia” Features Previously Unreleased Live and Studio Sessions Now Available on Vinyl/CD
These previously unreleased live and studio sessions are a loose exercise in spontaneity, and sheer art, which has been lost in the mists of time. Geronimo Black, a truly underrated band from Los Angeles, had existed long before its self-titled debut album released officially by UNI Records in February 1972.
Composer, arranger, keyboard player, and founding member Andy Cahan, was also part of Dr John's band at the time. Despite the fact that nearly all his players were part of the busy schedule of the evolving Frank Zappa's band Mothers Of Invention, Cahan attests that, “it was a real band with every intention of getting a record deal. Of course, since Jimmy Carl Black, Ray Collins and Bunk Gardner were from Zappa's original band, that was a big selling point to record companies.”
Talking about the songs on “Freak Out Phantasia” release, which preceded the first official album, Andy mentions that The Beatles were his main influence. Also, he name checks other luminaries such as The Zombies, Kinks, Lovin' Spoonful, Hendrix, Cream, Dave Clark Five, and The Beau Brummels. The live output found on this release is part of their non-stop gigging system. It's worth pointing out that around that time, they were playing gigs with The Eagles, Delaney & Bonnie, The Byrds, Eric Burdon, Joe Cocker, Ike & Tina Turner, The Standells, Canned Heat, Southwind, Taj Mahal, Little Feat, and many others.
Some songs herein included were recorded in a prison. Even doing very well on their live adventures, in terms of breaking through in sales, Geronimo Black never had the same lucky destiny of many of their Californian contemporaries. Signing a record deal with Uni Records around Christmas time, they were essentially deemed a tax right-off and were billed thousands of dollars on no income.
Back to the present, some highlights of Munster Records' compilation include “Topanga Canyon People” and “Ooh Poo Pah Doo” (both live recordings showing their total intensity and stoned freak-out atmosphere, recalling Zappa's sound, which obviously they were part of). “Let Us Live” is a superb song, with a bluesy-pop-twisted Southern rock vibe. An alternate version of “Siesta” is another key song, and in some ways resembles “Flute Thing,” a classic instrumental by The Blues Project. Now it is time to enjoy these recordings because they “reveal the raw passion and excitement we had on stage,” as Andy concludes. Includes CD with four bonus tracks.

Dura lex, sed lex. Dat ondervond de Britse sixtiesband Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band, zo heeft de muzieknieuws website loudersound.com vandaag gemeld.
De Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band was met zijn diepzinnige nonsens-humor zowat de muzikale tegenhanger van Monty Python. Hun grootste commerciële succes was het door niemand minder dan Paul McCartney - zij het onder een pseudoniem - geproduceerde 'I'm the Urban Spaceman' (1968). De Bonzo's doken ook op in de Beatles-film 'Magical Mystery Tour'. In 1970 was het met de groep afgelopen.
Twee jaar geleden wilden de nog levende leden de groep nieuw leven inblazen, maar zij konden niet onder hun originele naam optreden of platen opnemen. Een onbekende had immers de naam gedeponeerd als "figuratief merk".
De Britse wet staat toe dat eenieder wie dat wil voor 200 pond online de naam van een groep of intellectuele eigendom kan deponeren. Of die iemand er al dan niet bij betrokken was, doet er niet toe.
De overblijvende Bonzo's zijn nu op zoek naar geld om via juridische weg hun naam te heroveren. Ondertussen kijken ze ook aan tegen een rechtszaak van de "entiteit" die hun naam heeft geregistreerd. Voorts voeren ze campagne voor een wetswijziging, aldus loudersound.com.
He may be the most versatile bassist in or out of jazz, fluent in the musical languages of Dizzy Gillespie, André Previn, Rosemary Clooney, George Michael, Phil Woods, Kenny Rankin, Hank Jones, Paquito D’Rivera, Ivan Lins, and Sheila Jordan, to name just a few of the stars on his resume. But David Finck has spent much of his 40-year career exploring the solo potential of an instrument that is usually the unobtrusive heartbeat of the rhythm section. His bass has as many textures and shadings as the human voice; it can tell stories without words.
This album, his third as a leader, is another testament to his exquisite and eclectic taste, to the lushness of his sound, and most of all to his passion for melody, a now-rare commodity in popular music. “I miss the richness of real songwriting,” says David.
It’s everywhere on this recording, however. The arrangements, all by David, are airy and spacious, meticulous but never fussy; they put the songs’ impeccable craftsmanship first. You’ll hear the lyrical improvising of musicians who are not afraid to play the tune.
Jazzmen love “The Song Is You” and “Old Devil Moon,” whose chords are fun to blow on. David’s versions are finely orchestrated gems of breezy swing. They feature the shimmering tone and buoyant rhythm of David’s favorite collaborator, the great vibraphonist Joe Locke. You’ll also hear Locke’s sometime pianist Jim Ridl, whose cool, light touch has fire in it; Cliff Almond, a drummer of grace and precision; and David, who solos as nimbly as if his bass were a guitar.
On two movie songs, he shows the full range of the sounds he can create. Rex Harrison sang “When I Look in Your Eyes” to a seal in Doctor Dolittle (1967); the song has since become a standard. David’s bowed solo “sings” as expressively as any vocal version. His plucked exploration of “Alfie” sheds light on the twisty pathways of what David calls “one of the most unusual pop songs of all time—very beautiful and melodic and complicated.”
He got to play “The Summer Knows” (Theme from Summer of ’42) with its composer, Michel Legrand, on piano; later he performed it with Broadway’s Linda Eder, who sings it here. Her emotional delivery of Marilyn and Alan Bergman’s words—which view summer as a sensual goddess of the sea—is matched by David, whose bass becomes a
Over the opening credits of Narcos, the Netflix series about Colombian drug cartels, an ironically sweet and simple theme, “Tuyo,” is played. The laid-back Latin rhythms are supplied by Kevin Winard, one of L.A.’s busiest drummer-percussionists; the cool trombone solo comes from Michael Davis, who spent years with the Rolling Stones, Frank Sinatra, and Buddy Rich. The 1959 bossa nova “O Barquinho” (Little Boat) is a nod to the Brazilian music that has occupied much of David’s career. In the ensemble you’ll hear Bob Mann, a veteran guitarist whose collaborations encompass an eye-popping array of pop legends. “Bob, who is an outstanding soloist, is featured here as an integral part of the rhythm section,” explains David. “His nylon string accompaniment adds the perfect texture to four tracks.”
The album’s other guest vocalist is Alexis Cole, a much-respected, Manhattan-based jazz singer with a velvety alto and solid musicianship. She gives a fresh, no-frills reading of “Bluesette,” by the late Belgian harmonica player Toots Thielemans. “It’s an almost-perfect song; the melodic and harmonic content are delightful,” says David. “I enjoy the way the arrangement begins as a jazz waltz and morphs into a samba... kind of sneaks into it.” Cole also sings “I Love You So,” one of David’s rare forays into composing. This playful tune, which isn’t easy to sing, sprang out of a practice session in which David was experimenting with changing keys rapidly. Witty ensemble writing and a clever vamp help make this effort a winner.
David sings even less than he composes, but “some songs have to be sung,” he says. His singing is pitched conversation, cuddly and charming; and you’ll hear it on Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen’s “All My Tomorrows,” introduced in 1959 by
Frank Sinatra, one of David’s idols.
John Coltrane’s “Moment’s Notice” is a whirlwind of chord changes attached to one of the catchier tunes in bebop. David’s version is lilting, not frantic; it swings without breaking a sweat. The piano-and-vibes unison lines bring to mind the George Shearing Quintet, while David’s solo is a model of fluidity and dead-on pitch. Clearly bop is in his vocabulary too—“but at the end of the day, I still want to play melodically. Like all my albums, this one is about music the way I want to hear it. It’s
not all jazz but it’s basically a jazz record. That’s why we called itBASSically Jazz.”

PHILADELPHIA (Tuesday, July 2, 2019) – Legendary Sound of Philadelphia architects Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff joined today’s celebration of homegrown R&B living legend Patti LaBelle with a street naming dedication, by issuing the following joint statement:
“We congratulate our very dear friend Patti LaBelle on her street naming honors today. Patti is one of the greatest music legends to come out of Philadelphia, and she is beloved around the world. This could not happen to a better, and more well-deserved, person and friend! Congrats, Patti!”
The block of Broad Street between Spruce and Locust streets will be renamed Patti LaBelle Way, not far from the section of Broad Street that was renamed Gamble & Huff Way several years ago. It also is close to the former location of Gamble & Huff’s Philadelphia International Records (PIR) offices, which stood for decades at 309 S. Broad St. That is where Miss LaBelle, who grew up with Kenneth Gamble in West Philadelphia, signed with PIR in the midst of her superstar solo career following worldwide success leading the vocal groups Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles and later, Labelle. Her solo hits with Gamble & Huff include “Somebody Loves You Baby” and “If Only You Knew.” More recently, Miss LaBelle collaborated with Gamble & Huff for a pair of 2008 projects, the Labelle reunion album Back to Now, and Mr. Gamble’s patriotic anthem, “I Am An American.”
Laurence Jones Band heeft de eerste muziekvideo van het aanstaande nieuwe album uitgebracht. De single ‘I’m Waiting’ kwam op 31 mei uit en werd goed ontvangen door onder andere Veronica Inside, BBC Introducing en Planet Rock Radio.

Joe Louis Walker Announces World Tour In Support of His Brand New Concert DVD/CD Release “Viva Las Vegas Live”
Joe Louis Walker’s career has spanned nearly six decades – and 24 studio albums – since first picking up the guitar at his childhood home in San Francisco at the young age of eight. Joining the local musicians’ union in his early teens enabled young Joe to perform publicly with the likes of John Lee Hooker, Buddy Miles, Thelonious Monk, Willie Dixon, Nick Lowe, John Mayall, Muddy Waters and even Jimi Hendrix. By the late 1980s and into the 1990s, Walker had already collaborated with and performed with multi-Grammy Award winning artists such as B.B. King (on King’s Blues Summit album) and James Cotton (on Cotton’s Deep In The Blues album) as well as enjoying the rare honor to perform at the Presidential Inauguration of President George H. Bush. In 2013, Walker was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame, later being nominated in four categories for a Blues Music Award. In 2015, his album Everybody Wants A Piece was nominated for a Grammy Award in the “Best Contemporary Blues Album” category.
Viva Las Vegas Live is available on global digital platforms along with the home entertainment version that will be packaged in a gorgeous, four-panel, 2 Disc Digipack containing a DVD and audio CD of the concert. The all-region DVD’s bonus features include an exclusive interview with Walker that was filmed backstage at the venue plus a rare, behind the scenes slideshow of Joe and his band as they prepare to storm through ten, smoking tracks in front of their adoring live audience.

Gitarist Gary Duncan van de Californische groep Quicksilver Messenger Service is op 72-jarige leeftijd overleden, zo heeft het gezaghebbende loudersound.com vandaag gemeld. De precieze doodsoorzaak is niet bekend.
Gary Duncan, geboren in San Diego, voegde zich midden de jaren zestig bij de Californische groep The Brogues die enkele singles opnam waaronder de garagerockklassieker 'It Ain't No Miracle Worker". Samen met drummer Greg Elmore stapte hij over naar Quicksilver Messenger Service (QMS) die zich naast groepen als Jefferson Airplane en The Grateful Dead profileerde als uithangbord van de acid rock in San Francisco. Zeker bij de Airplane en de QMS was het personeelsverloop nauwelijks bij te houden.
Het luidt dat het complexe samenspelen van Duncan met collega-gitarist John Cipollina veel bijdroeg aan de status die de Quicksilver Messenger Service wist te verwerven. Bij optredens lag het accent op improvisatie en experiment waarbij één liedje wel eens drie tot vier uur kon duren.
De QMS leverde in 1969 met het album 'Happy Trails' één der meest gewaardeerde live-albums af. Duncan speelde bij de groep tussen 1965 en 1979, en van 2006 tot zijn dood.
Een waar muzikaal fenomeen. Babymetal maakt furore in de internationale muziekscene met hun mix van metal en kawaii (Japanse schattigheidscultuur), en opmerkelijke live shows die auditief en visueel veel spektakel bieden. De band brengt weldra hun langverwachte derde album uit getiteld ‘Galaxy Metal’. Een release die gevolgd wordt door een wereldtour met een reeks exclusieve shows in 2020 in Europa. Babymetal staat op zondag 16 februari voor het eerst in de AB. Een niet te missen event!
Sinds de release van hun titelloze debuutplaat uit 2014 blijft de populariteit van de band toenemen. Hun bijzondere muziekstijl roept veel nieuwsgierigheid op en wint show na show aan geloofwaardigheid dankzij de briljante uitvoeringen en verwoestende energie op het podium. Hun tweede album ‘Metal Resistance’ uit 2016 bevestigt dat Babymetal geen ééndagsvlieg is. De band slaat opnieuw hard toe en zet zijn muzikale zegetocht verder. Ook nu met gloednieuwe single “PA PA YA !”, voorloper van het derde album dat deze herfst verschijnt. En met de nieuwe tournee die Suzuka ‘Su-metal’ Nakamoto et Moa ‘Moametal’ Kikuchi tot in Brussel brengt!

Crammerock heeft Balthazar kunnen strikken voor een exclusief concert. Want na het enorme succes op Rock Werchter spelen deze publiekslievelingen deze zomer nog maar één keer op Belgische bodem, jawel, op Crammerock.
De heren van Balthazar speelde drie jaar geleden op Crammerock hun allerlaatste concert op Belgische bodem, voor ze aan hun sabbatperiode begonnen. Het werd een stomend afscheid, waarna De verschillende bandleden elk hun weg gingen, onder de namen Zimmerman, J. Bernardt en Warhaus.
Ofschoon die acts de afgelopen jaren ook hun weg vonden naar Stekene hunkerde het Crammerockpubliek naar een comeback van de moederband. Dat bleek toen we dit voorjaar vroegen om wensenlijstjes in te dienen via crammerock.be: Balthazar stak er met hoofd, schouders, knie en tenen bovenuit. Daarom konden we niet anders dan dit neusje van de Belgische muziekzalm dit jaar terug naar Stekene te halen.
Na Rock Werchter toert het vijftal deze zomer door heel Europa én ver daarbuiten. Met zijn eigen sound vult de band met gemak grote zalen over het hele continent. Telkens met dezelfde Mathieu Van der Poel-instelling: elke keer àlles geven. Wil je ze toch nog een keer op Belgische bodem zien? Kom dan naar het exclusieve concert op Crammerock.
TicketsBalthazar is één van de 30 namen die intussen bekend zijn voor de 29ste editie van Crammerock. Deze zomer zal het festival nog een reeks namen lossen, want ook dit jaar komen er weer zo’n 50 top-acts uit de rock, pop, dance, elektro en hiphop naar Crammerock. De line-up is te vinden op de festivalwebsite: crammerock.be.
Wie er op vrijdag 6 en zaterdag 7 september bij wil zijn, wacht best niet te lang met het kopen van zijn tickets. Op dit moment zijn reeds 2/3de van de beschikbare tickets de deur uit. De afgelopen acht jaren was Crammerock helemaal uitverkocht.
Crammerock is een tweedaags, complexloos muziekfestival tijdens het eerste weekend van september in Stekene, tussen Antwerpen en Gent. Jaarlijks passeren meer dan vijftig bands op de drie podia, die garant staan voor non-stop muziek uit alle genres. Dankzij een uitmuntend collectief aan vrijwilligers weet het festival zich te onderscheiden met lage ticketprijzen en een opvallend ongedwongen sfeer. De vorige editie klokte het festival af op 35.000 bezoekers. Door zijn impact op het milieu zoveel mogelijk te beperken won het festival al verschillende awards.

UK Punk Rock Mavericks THE MEMBERS Put Their Own Unique Spin On Songs By Buzzcocks, The Ramones, The Wailers, Gregory Isaacs, Grandmaster Flash, ABBA, Prince and more!
For the first time ever in a career that reaches all the way back to the ‘70s, British punk rock icons The Members have recorded an entire album of other band’s songs, offering up 14 cover versions that are utterly unique and unmistakably The Members. Entitled Version, the album reflects the many and varied influences of the band - from punk to pop to reggae and dub - but arranged and performed with an intense artistry all their own.
Longtime member and mastermind JC Carroll had this to say about the project, “This compilation goes right back to the roots of punk and reggae in the UK. I first heard the Dillinger track ‘Cokane In My Brain’ when Don Letts played it at the Roxy Club in 1977. With Chris Payne [bassist since 1976], I saw shows by The Heartbreakers and The Lurkers at the Vortex. We also pay tribute to the late Pete Shelley on two tracks with radial reworkings of two Buzzcocks classics.”
Version will be available on all formats everywhere starting July 5 on Cleopatra Records. And be sure to catch JC Carroll and the boys on the road this summer for a tour in Europe followed by a North American tour in the fall!

Today Whitney Houston and Kygo released a new single “Higher Love”. The single marks the first new Whitney Houston music released in a decade, since 2009’s “I Look To You.” Whitney originally recorded the cover of Steve Winwood’s “Higher Love” and released it as a Japan-only bonus track on her “I’m Your Baby Tonight” album in 1990.
Pat Houston said of the single, “The Estate of Whitney E. Houston and our new partner Primary Wave are delighted with the collaboration between KYGO and WHITNEY. We knew KYGO would be the right producer to enhance Whitney’s powerful vocal performance on ‘Higher Love,’ to the standards and expectations that Whitney’s fans have recognized for over three decades. The resurgence of this precious archival performance will carry Whitney’s musical legacy on to a younger generation for years to come. Everyone should be ready to dance to this uplifting and inspiring record - a testament to KYGO’s incredible talent, and a reminder of why we fell in love with Whitney from the very beginning!!!”
WITH THE UPCOMING, HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED RELEASE OF THE JAMES THOMAS BAND’s LATEST, PERFECTLY TITLED ALBUM ‘THE LOVES OF MY LIFE’ AND THEIR SIMMERING, HEART-TUGGING NEW SINGLE ‘EILEEN’, THE MULTI-TALENTED, VIRGINIA BASED SOUL-BLUES (WITH A TINGE O
It began in the late 2000s, a few years after the passing of Thomas’ wife of 25 years. Still in a dark place and emotionally distant from his vibrant, earlier musical lifetimes, he ran into his old friend, keyboardist/bassist/drummer David Floyd, who convinced him to start writing music again. To jump start his creativity, Thomas, despite his initial skepticism, posted songs from his long ago released album Ocean Song online – and quickly hit the viral jackpot. In its first two months, over 227,000 listened to the resurrected recording, resulting in an astounding 1.5 million-plus plays.
Greatly encouraged and getting his long set aside creative mojo back, Thomas, Floyd and guitarist Pat Walters formed the James Thomas Band and recorded the multi-faceted concept album The Courthouse and the Redemption. Produced by Thomas, who sang lead and played acoustic guitar, the recording, driven by country rock foundations heavily seasoned with blues/rock influences, earned him an enthusiastic following in Europe – and the unique experience of being a middle-aged musician earning a following dominated by fans of the ages 13-18. The music of the James Thomas Band is particularly popular in Spain, Italy (from Sicily to Milan), Algeria, Libya, Tunisia, Morocco, Ethiopia and Venezuela.
In the handful of years since the release of The Courthouse and the Redemption, the James Thomas Band has evolved significantly. “Eileen” and the other 10 tracks of The Loves of My Life – which will also be released in a special limited vinyl edition - feature the explosive new lineup of renowned veteran guitarist/producer Andre Ferreri, lead guitarist, bassist, drummer and keyboardist Mat Sigmon and lead guitarist Alan Rueda, who began performing in bands with Thomas when the two were in their late teens. Ferreri and Sigmon are graduates of the famed Berklee School of Music in Boston. Ferreri has multi-genre history that extends back several decades and includes performing with the funk/soul band Powerhouse and jazz/rock instrumental group Airstreeam, performing with the Charlotte Symphony and Greensboro Symphony and doing sessions and live performances with legendary artists like Brook Benton, Maurice Williams, Dave Valentin, Herbie Mann and Sam Moore. Rueda’s electric guitar expertise and years of performing experience mirrors and complements the explosive power of Ferrari and Sigmon’s formal jazz-based education to create Thomas’ most potent lineup yet.
“We’ve really come together as a cohesive band with great chemistry these past few years, and we’re looking forward to getting out and sharing the new songs live,” Thomas says. “The Loves of My Life is more focused than the ‘Courthouse’ album, which had me exploring all kinds of genres, from jazz to blues to pop. Because I grew up in Durham, that country twang will always be a part of me, yet as a unit we’re all about soulful blues-rock and we wanted this album and all future recordings to reflect what we’re really great at.
“I think ‘Eileen’ in particular will open up our sound to audiences on both sides of the Pond,” he adds. “It resonates as a rocker, a country song and a pop tune, and allowed my voice to be at its most emotional. I think people are responding to it so positively because it tells a good story. This takes me back to my earliest country influences, including Hank Williams, Sr., who was a masterful storyteller. That’s basically what country music is about. When I originally wrote ‘Eileen,’ I didn’t realize it would become such a meaningful song to people. Yet it resonates because it’s honest and true and really strikes a chord.”
While most of the original tracks on The Loves of My Life are very recent compositions, “Eileen” – a co-write with Ferreri - is unique in that Thomas penned the original version of it when he was just 17. Living in Durham, he was moved to tears by the local story of a Duke co-ed of that name who was killed by a trash truck when she was distracted walking and stepped off a curb. Though he never met the girl, he turned the tragedy into a personal reflection of losing a great love who both brought him down and “picked me up like a clown.”
Other key tracks on The Loves of My Life include two previously released singles “Siren” and “Meet Me on the Corner.” “Siren” is an edgy mid-tempo rocker (heavily influenced by the classic “All Along the Watchtower” that finds Thomas refashioning the classic Odyssey tale about a lonely woman who is searching for true love but has a hard time connecting with men. A funky old school horn-drenched soul-rocker, “Meet Me on the Corner” is about a guy trying to get closer to a sheltered girl whose parents disapprove of him.
Another can’t miss gem is “Soul Shake,” which Thomas describes as “a religious-like rock song about intense desire, confronting mortality and looking forward to a love of a more eternal nature. “Suicide Blues” is a poignant classic styled rocker about a chronically troubled singer in one of Thomas’ previous bands who tried to leap off a mountain years ago during a photo shoot. The lone cover is the gentle piano and guitar driven cover of Larry Norman’s hard hitting, religious themed “I Wish We’d All Been Ready,” featuring one of Thomas’ most tender vocals.
The James Thomas Band’s current success among European listeners is no surprise considering that Thomas – who was born in Durham, North Carolina, spent three years of his childhood in Verona, Italy. His father was a master sergeant in the U.S. Army attached to NATO as their comptroller. Thomas attended an Italian school from first through third grade. Two of the early obstacles he had to overcome were a terrible speech impediment and being trained to switch from being left to right handed. Two years ago, during an interview with the best-known radio DJ in Milan about working on The Loves of My Life, Thomas blew his host away by speaking fluent Italian. He also spent part of his childhood in Boston and Durham.
“Inspired by my late wife, who spent much of her career as a psychologist at Duke and taught me about the inner workings of the mind, I have always found it natural to write songs about the human condition,” Thomas says. “She was always my greatest fans and I know she would love the fact that I’m making music again from a perspective of having a deeper understanding now about how relationships go. Many years ago, I almost signed a deal in Nashville, but a difficult encounter with a record company executive made me change my mind.
Making music on my own terms now, I can enjoy my success much more than I could have in those days,” he adds. “Back then, I had no objectivity and I was not as strong and refined a songwriter as I am today. I would just throw out the first thing that popped into my head and go with it. Now I carefully craft every single word and feel like I can communicate my feelings so much better. I’ve always understood the impact of music, but now I understand the power of words and always keep in mind how people will receive and relate to them.”
Jerry Carrigan, a celebrated session drummer heard on famed Nashville recordings from Elvis Presley, Waylon Jennings and Kenny Rogers, died last week, according to the Alabama Music Hall of Fame. He was 75.
Raised on Fats Domino and Little Richard, Carrigan began his Music City career at age 13, cutting a Nashville session with Little Joe Allen and the Off Beats.
A native of Florence, Alabama, Carrigan spent his early adult years at the notable FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, where he crafted a technique on sessions with early FAME breakouts Arthur Alexander and Jimmy Hughes.
In 1964, Carrigan played in the Muscle Shoals backing band that opened for the Beatles' first United States concert, at the Washington Coliseum in Washington D.C.
Carrigan moved to Nashville in 1965, quickly becoming a go-to session drummer with excellent timing and an irreplaceable “big, fat snare” sound.
It may be impossible to play through country music’s most notable tracks of the 1960s and 1970s and not hear Carrigan’s percussion work. His drums landed on Kenny Rogers' “The Gambler,” Jennings' track “Only Daddy That’ll Walk The Line,” Jerry Lee Lewis’ “Middle Age Crazy,” Charlie Rich’s “Behind Closed Doors” and the 1980 George Jones hit “He Stopped Loving Her Today.”
The list continues, with Carrigan credited for work with Kris Kristofferson, Loretta Lynn, Reba McEntire, Charley Pride, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Dolly Parton and numerous others.
The demand for Carrigan swelled in 1977, the Alabama Music Hall of Fame notes, where he’d be wanted for 12 sessions a week.
He wasn’t just sought after in country music, either. Carrigan laid down work in pop and folk music of the time, playing for Tom Jones, Johnny Mathis and Joan Baez. He also helped craft jingles, offering his experience to McDonald’s, KFC and Coca Cola, among others.
Carrigan tracked on John Denver’s famed 1981 album “Some Days Are Diamond,” opening a door to tour with the singer-songwriter from 1981 to 1989. He also shared the touring stage with Charlie McCoy, Porter Wagoner, Johnny Rivers and Ronny and the Daytonas.
The Country Music Hall of Fame honored Carrigan in 2009 as part of the ongoing “Nashville Cats” series; The Alabama Music Hall of Fame inducted Carrigan in 2010.
Carrigan died in Chattanooga of an unknown illness, the Times Daily of Florence, Alabama reported.
Liam Gallagher maakt zijn retour, en die gaat uiteraard niet onopgemerkt voorbij. De Britse rocker kondigde zonet de release van zijn tweede soloalbum aan met twee splinternieuwe singles vol gitaargeweld! En omdat goed nieuws nooit alleen komt, maakte Liam in één beweging ook zijn Europese tournee bekend, die op zaterdag 8 februari halt houdt in Vorst Nationaal. Tickets zijn verkrijgbaar vanaf woensdag 3 juli om 10u.
De helft van het Oasis-broederpaar is al sinds begin deze zomer niet uit de spotlights weg te slaan. Na de release van de aan hem gewijde docufilm ‘As It Was’, die in première ging tijdens het recente filmfestival in Cannes, levert Liam met “Shockwave” een nieuwe single af, compleet met een charismatische viral video. Daarnaast is er intussen ook “The River”, met een helse riff in een hedendaagse ‘Madchester’-stijl. Maar het beste moet natuurlijk nog komen: in september is er zijn tweede album ‘Why Me? Why Not.’ en in 2020 mogen we ons opmaken voor een langverwachte concertreeks, waarin Liam Gallagher het beste van zijn onnavolgbare carrière aan bod laat komen.
