The Skinny

11/25 | RootsWorld Radio: Wednesday at 5 PM | Posted by Cliff Furnald



On the 172nd edition of RootsWorld Radio, we’ll begin by heading back to the 1780s with the Belgian band, WÖR. We’ll hear a bit of Ellington-as-ska by Italian brass band Bandakadabra. We’ll also explore a few songs from the latest episodes of Anne-Mari Kivimäki’s ‘Suistamo Suite’ (including Suistamon Sähkö). Then we’ll finish off the program with a rebroadcast of a half hour set by Denmark’s Trolska Polska in a live performance at ‘The Old Mill’ at The Tønder Festival in Denmark last year.

11/19 | Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, Fri 11/20 & Tues 11/24 | Posted by Bob Rogers

LennyThe first time I arrived in Paris I came upstairs from the Metro at Saint-Michel and saw a big cathedral a block or so up the river and wondered if that could be Nôtre Dame. I was a nineteen year old Brooklyn College kid, and the first uncensored thought that tumbled through my mind was, No, couldn’t be, they wouldn’t leave it out on the street. As if, like, someone might steal its hubcaps. The idea that beauty could be a breathing part of life and not some restricted aesthetic or romantic category was new to me, and I tried to learn it, along with a lot of other things that summer. My idea was to finish school, avoid the Vietnam war, come back and be a great writer right away, but I wouldn’t live there for, oh, another twenty-five years. I didn’t learn everything Paris had to teach me but I gathered what I could. This week’s show—Friday at 8PM and noon next Tuesday, six hours earlier than Louvre time—after last week’s slaughter, opens with a nostalgic set of French songs featuring Django, Montand, Brassens, Piaf and perhaps a few surprises before moving on to the looming, brooding, cataclysmic, hushed and roaring bulk of Hector Berlioz’ Requiem, the mad romantic sweep of which might just be enough to gather the present moment in its arms. In 1975 Leonard Bernstein conducted the Orchestre National de France at Les Invalides, where the piece premiered in 1837, with the extra brass players blowing the last trump from the upper galleries and the massive church acoustic doing what Berlioz intended. It’s a performance that, to my ears, speaks to the moment better than any other. A Paris friend of mine was given a free ticket to the Bataclan for last Friday night, but while working on a painting that morning he got some acrylic in his eye and experienced an outrageous reaction: his eye, face, head and body swelled up until he looked like the Elephant Man, and nothing helped. So he didn’t go to hear the music that night. It’s that close.
