Such a night – Dr. John hyldede Allen Toussaint

22. juli 2016

It was during “Such a Night” that Dr. John made his musical kinship with Toussaint inescapable as he took two piano breaks in which he effortlessly reeled off a staggeringly complex progression of melodic ideas, accompanying chords and percussive rhythmic accents that have been a core attribute of New Orleans music for more than a century, reaching back to the innovative music of Creole pianist and composer Louis Gottschalk.

– og “Such a night” i Dr. Johns version fra The Bands “Last Waltz”…

Rullesten til døden os skiller

“They’re not really bands if they don’t last; they’re groups. We’re a band and a real band sticks until it dies. These bands, they become big, but they’re generational, just for their one decade. They literally go when their testosterone goes.” (Keith Richard til Radio Times)

Keith Richard er altid god for en kommentar. Og selv om ovenstående måske ikke vil komme bag på os, der har fulgt bandet siden begyndelsen, så er det alligevel noget sådan at sætte ord på det.

Led Zeppelin på BBC

21. juli 2016

Selv om Led Zeppelin stadigvæk slås med fortiden om rettighederne til deres sange, så kan man ikke tage fra dem, at det har været et af de største rockbands i Storbritannien gennem årene. Og derfor er det med glæde, man modtager nyheden om, at bandet genudsender deres gamle BBC-optagelser i fornyet, forbedret og ikke mindst komplet udgave. Plus lidt ekstra materiale. Hele 3 CD’er/ 5 vinyl-LP’er kommer herlighederne til at fylde.

Netop statsinstitutionene BBC stod for mange fine dokumentationer af fortidens (og nutidens) bedste musikalske akter. Fra The Beatles og frem, så at sige.

Jeg tilgiver gerne Page, Plant og Co., at de har “lånt” og “citeret” flittigt fra traditionen i opbygningen af deres succes (selv om de burde og skulle have betalt for det…), så længe de således kan levere varen i tiden efter.

Zeppelinerne, da de indtog vores egen statsradiofoni…
