Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, Fri 3/28 & 4/1

Sonny Rollins’ Roadshows Vol. 3 is coming out in the first week of May, but for some of us the anticipation is too much to bear, so this week’s Updoc—Friday at 8PM, noon next Tuesday, East Broadway Rundown time—is another Sonny Rollins love-fest. But wait: I didn’t go to the record collection but trawled through concert videos and bootlegs for terrific lesser-known material, and found it. Most of the concerts are from the ‘80s, with bands of varying quality but Sonny radiantly melodious, and there’s a 22-minute St. Thomas from the quartet with Ornettists Don Cherry and Billy Higgins, an outtake from the 1962 live date that yielded Our Man in Jazz: Sonny more staggeringly formidable, less grandly joyful than he would be twenty years on, but you’ll feel plenty of glow nonetheless. Since even Sonny Rollins needs a break from Sonny Rollins now and then, Updoc takes one with the Mt. Everest of piano sonatas, Beethoven’s Hammerklavier, the power tool he used to break through to his late-period music. It’s played for us by the phenomenal youngster Igor Levit, who has the whole gigantic thing working in all its parts. Then back to Rollins playing The Tennessee Waltz, engulfing the melody in his bear-hug, undaunted by obvious sentiment and arcane technicalities alike: he’s as broad as a mountain range, as fine as sunlight, and an apparently endless source of deep-delved joy.SonnyPic

Sonny Rollins’ Roadshow Vol. 3 is coming out in the first week of May, but for some of us the anticipation is too much to bear, so this week’s Updoc, Friday at 8PM and noon next Tuesday, no foolin’—, 8PM Friday and noon next Tuesday, East Broadway Rundown time—SonnyPic—is another Sonny Rollins love-fest. But wait: I didn’t go to the record collection but trawled through concert videos and bootlegs for terrific lesser-known material, and found it. Most of the concerts are from the ‘80s, with bands of varying quality but Sonny radiant, and there’s a 22-minute St. Thomas from the quartet with Ornettists Don Cherry and Billy Higgins, an outtake from the sessions that yielded Our Man in Jazz: Sonny more staggeringly formidable, less grandly joyful than he would be twenty years on, but you’ll feel plenty of glow nonetheless. Since even Sonny Rollins needs a break from Sonny Rollins now and then, Updoc takes one with the Mt. Everest of piano sonatas, Beethoven’s Hammerklavier, the rock drill he used to break through to his late period music, as played by the phenomenal youngster Igor Levit, who has the whole gigantic thing working in all its parts. Then back to Rollins playing The Tennessee Waltz, embracing the melody in his bear-hug, undaunted by obvious sentiment and arcane technicalities alike: he’s as broad as a mountain range, as fine as sunlight, and an apparently endless source of deep-delved joy.

Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, Fri 3/21 & Tues 3/25

Hector Berlioz’ Symphonie Fantastique is the looniest piece in the 19th century orchestral canon, but Updoc doesn’t think that most performances, like the go-to recording by Colin Davis and Concertgebouw, are loony enough, so this week’s show—Friday at 8PM and noon next Tuesday—goes with John Eliot Gardiner and his brash Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique, its smaller forces, original instruments (including a serpent), bold textures and unvibrato: what a wake-up call, march to the scaffold, Dies Irae, opium hallucinations and all. What a blast. Then we cool off with Scarlatti, who sounds as brilliant as Bach but somehow without the universal-intellect-thing, and as usual Updoc clocks in late for a holiday, with the traditional ballad Finnegan’s Wake and James Joyce himself lilting on about Anna Livia. For closers, okay, there’s this kid of 27, Igor Levit, who plays the late Beethoven piano sonatas as if he’s Artur Schnabel recorded in a modern studio; which raises the question, is it an interpretation or a Xerox? Well I’ll tellya, Sonata #31 Opus 110 is one of the greatest pieces of music there is, and the kid plays like a dream and the fi is hi, and that will do for now. I know, where’s the jazz? It’s in there somewhere, I’m sure of it. Maybe it’s the cat blowing serpent.
