Hey, there’s a whole stretch of things I wanted to (needed to) say about what I chose, and why I chose the pieces, and why I chose those pieces in that particular order, but I more than ran out of time, so I think (with a sense of humor) that i”ll tell the audience the info at some later time, maybe in a show that has even less to do with my lost buddy Jack. And, yeah, this really is the 74th NON Jack Bruce show in a series of 679. There’s really no redicule worthy attempt to approximate 70 years of awe demanding musical force and 35 years of intense friendship and musical collaboration in the deepest way in a two hour (plus) “radio” show, BUT there are a fuck of a lot more anecdotes and….. oK, sigh…. sob….. deeper sigh….


11/20 | Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, Fri., Nov. 21 & Tues., Nov. 25 | Posted by Bob Rogers

There isn’t a single focus or overall theme on this week’s Updoc—Friday at 8PM and noon next Tuesday, East Broadway Rundown time—but I think the music’s good enough to stop by for: first a set of jazz newcomers who recorded notable albums this year—Alfredo Rodriguez, Oran Etkin, Melissa Aldana et al—and then a kind of mournful song-set built around a performance of Jeff Buckley’s Grace—live on TV, four-piece band, no tricks and yes he could really sing like a soaring angel contemplating his oncoming death unbothered. The brackets are two of the stunningest melodies I know, Purcell’s Dido’s Lament and Buxtehude’s Klag-lied, and after a dazzle of D-minor Bach, Jacob Druckman and an orchestra wish Nor Spell Nor Charm trouble his friend Jan DeGaetani’s lully-lullay, and please annul her early death. Maybe the show does have a theme: Herbie Nichols is up next, and his successor Andrew Hill, then along comes maybe the most famous early death of all. I’ve been featuring Mozart piano concertos to close recent shows but this time I got distracted by the extraordinary brilliance of his String Quintet in D, the fifth of the six he composed, less famous than the G-minor but I think the stunner of the set: for most of its length it sounds like Beethoven’s Late Quartets decades before the fact. The canonical recording is by Grumiaux & Co. but I found even more to love in a recording by the Zukerman Chamber Players. I can’t say enough about the glories of this music, so I’ll let words fail and just hope you lend an ear.RichterBlueLarge
