Rafi Zabor’s Updoc – Paul Bley & Pierre Boulez

BoulBley

That Paul Bley and Pierre Boulez died within two days of each other (and another large, much younger B, David Bowie, five days further on) is pure happenstance, of course, though the family resemblance is prominent: none of these guys had much appetite for musical complacency, for music as a rehearsal of the already known (except in Boulez’s case, appropriately, as a conductor). I don’t like doing all these dead-guy shows, but I tend to feel that attention must be paid—Friday at 8PM and noon next Tuesday, Carnegie Hall and Village Vanguard time—with the long Paul Bley set staring with his influential solo all All the Things You Are with Sonny and Hawk and the obligatory Ida Lupino, then moving on to cover some of the territory he visited while skating on the other side of the harmonic ice. Boulez is represented by the first movement of Pli Selon Pli, which I’m coming around to thinking is his greatest masterpiece, and by his signature conductions of Debussy, Bartok, and for a finish his unbeatable performance of Mahler’s elegiac Adagietto. The clarity, transparency, and finesse are unmistakably his, and theirs. Two musicians thinking forward, always forward, and finding sounds that rose to meet them. Meet them here for a couple of hours and see what you think.

Also: Conor Oberst and Mark Lanegan (both of whom need a change of scenery), Cassandra Wilson, Jimi Hendrix, the Roots and Meshell Ndegeocello.

Downhome with Howling Dick Ep 132 (The Cutting Room Floor)

It’s a brand new year but the same old nonsense as Howling reminisces sartorial fashions, reviews a curriculum vitae and consults the oracle. Despite all this he still  manages to play an hour of some excellent blues ‘n roots!

Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, Star Wars Music

FuddLeap

The New Yorker’s classical music critic Alex Ross wrote an interesting blog post called Listening to Star Wars—Google it up and check it out—which among other things fills in the backstory to John Williams’ scores for the films. The echoes of Holst’s Mars music from The Planets was obvious in the Empire and Vader music, of course, but I wasn’t aware that the Star Wars main theme was a variation on Erich Korngold’s score for the 1942 film Kings Row—the one in which Ronald Reagan asked “Where’s the rest of me?” Ross also pointed out some battle music in the new movie that riffs on bits of Bartok’s Concerto for Orchestra, and I thought all that interesting enough to put on this week’s Updoc—Friday at 8 PM and noon next Tuesday, Times Square time—but then, really, the primary root of Williams’ Lucas music is sunk in the earth of Richard Wagner, leitmotifs and all, so why not play Lorin Maazel’s sensational orchestral suite The Ring Without Words so we can all lie back, enter Wagner’s overwhelming soundworld, have a sonogasm and make up our own movies in our heads? And what better way to introduce it and lay out the thematic material than via one of the greatest comedy recordings of all time, Anna Russell’s ‘explication’ of Wagner’s Ring Cycle? It sounded like radio heaven to me, but then two major dudes, Paul Bley and Pierre Boulez, left town and it was too late to put something together in their memory this week. Alas: regrets, Valkyries, Bugs and Elmer in What’s Opera Doc, and Siegfried’s Funeral Music will have to do till next time. Hail and farewell, heroes, and if you pass through Valhalla may you enjoy the scenery and move on.

Jones for blues guitarist Albert King in 1967.
