RootsWorld Radio  #167 will start off with some rhythmic beatings from Bahia Black, and then spend some time listening to the piano in different settings, from the music of South Africa to a trio of musicians from Gambia and Sweden bringing together piano, kora and saxophone. We’ll finish off the program with Youssou N’Dour et le Super Etoile de Dakar, recorded live in Athens in 1987. The recording is from from next month’s “Music of the Month” CD (see the web site for more info). Other artists will include Catina DeLuna & Lado B; Alagi M’Bye, Arne Forsén and Jonas Knutsson; Hank Jones and Cheick-Tidiane Seck, Abdullah Ibrahim, Aranis, and Uxia.

10/01 | Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, Fri.10/2 & Tues. 10/6 | Posted by Bob Rogers


Here in Brooklyn the leaves have barely started turning color, still less falling to the sidewalk, yet here I am asking myself how many times I have to play Autumn Leaves, or the more complex Josef Kosma original, Feuilles Mortes, before encroaching on my colleague Kip Hanrahan’s triumph of programming Jobim’s Waters of March seventeen times running. On this week’s show—Friday at 8PM and noon next Tuesday, Prospect Park Maple time—with leaflets from Yves Montand, James Moody, Miles Davis (twice), Miles’ great early love Juliette Greco, Keith Jarrett (once), and of course Edith Piaf, in French and English, recorded live at Carnegie Hall, I’m not all that close, but still I feel a draft, spelled though the leaves are by Eduard Tubin’s Fifth—as thoroughly accomplished a 20th century symphony as anyone has composed—which the Estonian master completed in 1946 about the time he left for Sweden upon the confirmation of the Soviet takeover of his country; and by the exquisitely autumnal Piano Quintet in C Minor, a late work by the devastating and revelatory Gabriel Fauré, as summer into autumn slips. Autumn Leaves or Feuilles Mortes: Johnny Mercer’s English lyric ain’t but a patch on Jacques Prévert’s original, but it’s one of the great songs of the last century however you cut it: la chanson que tu chantais, toujours, toujours je l’entendrai. Ah yes, I remember it well.
