Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, Fri 1/29 & Tues 2/2

BaHannC

American Pastorale is fine with me. There’s some of Aaron Copland’s music that can own me with an opening phrase—his music for Our Town, for instance—and when I listen to Maria Schneider’s widely and highly praised CD The Thompson Fields, topping most critics’ ten-best lists for 2015, I respond easily to its wealth of open-throated melody and open-hearted sentiment, but after awhile it starts sounding a lot like good-quality generic film music to me. Not that there’s anything wrong with that—I like some of John Williams’ scores too. But after playing Schneider’s title composition I felt like chasing it with the music of another lady with a big band, and it’s hard not to find something larger and more multifarious in Carla Bley. Later in the show—Friday at 8PM and noon next Tuesday, Local 802 Roseland Ballroom time—there’s more contemporary large ensemble music by Terence Blanchard, Christian McBride’s virtuoso big band and, yes, The Lincoln Center guys bringing it back alive from Cuba, but what I’ll confess to liking best this week is the amazing Barbara Hannigan—and she’s amazing even when she isn’t doing something provocative costume-wise—singing her way through Ophelia’s vocabulary from that Shakespeare play in Hans Abrahamsen’s not-too-long composition Let Me Tell You, which sounds like an instant classic to me. Then there’s the Irish-American Pastorale of Aoife O’Donovan, against whose pristine, subtly uninterfered-with voice I have no defenses, unless it’s a brief interruption from Scriabin, and that’s all folks. Next week, I hope, no more bronchitis, and the curmudgeon consigned to the cellar.

Downhome with Howling Dick (ep 133 Salute The Dame)

There’s some wishful thinking this time out as Howling wants to turn the clock back but without success as the usual collection of oddball miscreants including an artistic evangelist, mime artist and father and daughter act join in the madness. Despite the build up, rest assured its an hour of fine blues and roots.

Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, ep. 100

RavLloyd

Yeah, I’m not sure about the photo either, but that’s how this week’s Updoc starts off—Friday at 8PM and noon next Tuesday, Lincoln Center Birdland time—with Charles Lloyd and Maurice Ravel: a set composed of three tracks from Lloyd’s new, largely countrified gospel record called I Long to See You featuring a band twanged up not only by Bill Frisell but Greg Leisz on pedal-steel. He calls them The Marvels, and I dare you not to like it. I double dare you. Interspersing that are two orchestral works by Ravel as conducted by Pierre Boulez: pellucid perfection and hail and not quite farewell. Never fear: neither one of them is Bolero. For the rest of the show I made some picks from other people’s 10-best jazz lists, so that most of it doesn’t really sound like one of my shows; which might be interesting. I say a few equivocal things about some of the playing on the show, but I won’t spill it here; so you’ll have to tune in to find out, if that’s the sort of thing you like. And awaaay we go . . .
