Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, Friday March 1, Tues. 3/5

Golly good gracious me, I’ve put together the second all-jazz show in two weeks—this would be Updoc,clarkwithhorns Friday 8PM and noon the following Tuesday, Brooklyn Approximate time—but honest, officer, I have a good excuse. I don’t know how it happened, but I’d never heard Clark Terry’s big band ballad album Clark After Dark until a couple of weeks ago on a radio station that will go nameless (WKCR) and it just bowled me over. We’re not talking Miles and Gil here: the charts sound like Nelson Riddle from 1959, and the record, Clark’s personal favorite, was made in ’77 and came out the year after. I was a full-time jazz crrritic at the time and got everything, but I didn’t get that one, and then somehow missed it for another few decades. I love Clark Terry, and we all expect him to be warm and wonderful, but the beauty of his playing on this record is profound, and a real heart-melter. Not enough for you? How about Duke Ellington’s Blues in Orbit, also featuring Terry, and Terry with Monk, plus Terry with Mingus, four cuts from the band with Bob Brookmeyer and we take it out with Mumbles? The sweetest cat in the world and sounds like it, turned 93 in December, and still the only man on earth who can simultaneously play two brass instruments using only the strength of his lapels. You have to tune in for that. Bring your own valve oil.

Record of the week has the feel of your best friend moving back to town… this long loving hug comes from UK’s number one Americana Country band The Rockingbirds. Alan Tylers writing is as strong as ever… the playing shines and ‘ The Return Of The Rockingbirds ‘ will surely give them the success to keep them playing for us for many more years to come and a big tip of the hat to Tom at Loose Records for making this happen…watch out for the tour dates.
Our first session this week comes from The Motor City…the heart land of American rock…mixed with the love of blues…P-A-U-L Lamb & The Detroit Breakdown are an old school trio who take no prisoners. They first came to my attention on my blues stage at Glastonbury in 2010…since then they have been here opening for Molly Hatchet and causing ‘ jungle hot ‘ shows around the country.
The second session has a familier ring to the story…UK band takes American music back to the USA with an English twist…better known in the US than here the Leeds based band The Dunwells take Everly Brothers harmonies and strong writing and make it there very own.

Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, Friday 2/22 & Tues 2/26

Gosh, it’s been ages since I’ve done an all-jazz show, but it happens on this week’s Updoc—miiesbyrdFriday at 8PM and noon next Tuesday, Birdland time—and it leads off with a belated tribute to Donald Byrd, who left this town a couple of weeks ago and took his trumpet with him. It ends with his hit, Cristo Redentor, and if the choral arrangement is a bit schlocky it’s a beautiful melody and Byrd plays it well enough for heaven. Then I catch up on someone I should have been hip to for years, the young tenorist Walter Smith III, playing with a young all-star cohort. Following that, well hey, I actually got my hands on a new release, if of old music: the legal release of bootlegs from the no longer quite so “lost” Miles Davis Quintet of 1969-70, the one with Wayne, Chick, Holland, and DeJohnette, probably MIles’ scorchingest band ever. An hour and four minutes long, and get ready to have your eyebrows broiled. Bring lots of lotion and a cooling drink.
