Hate saying it as much as you do.


Moraes Moreira (singar/guitarist of Novos Baianos) has passed away. He also had a whole bunch of solo records, but his work with Novos Baianos produced at least three really fantastic albums. I think Acabou Chorare is pretty well regarded on BEA, especially for a non-English album. Personal fav too. Think I'll give it a spin tomorrow.

Hoping people give this one a shot too:

R.I.P.

Acabou Chorare is transcendent (my current #6), and Novos Baianos F.C. is great. I've only heard those two. What's your third favorite - self-titled?

Yeah.

It's third in the bunch, but still worth a spin. If you dig those two, there's no reason not to give it a listen.

French singer Christophe has passed away. Covid.

First a very famous unwilling ye-ye star in the mid-6Os (with songs such as 'Aline' or 'Les marionettes'), he reinvented himself in the 70s as the night-prowling dandy of Parisian bars and dancings, with a touch of the Italian popular song that belied his origins. He reappeared in the mid-80s with frankly horrible top 50 variété, to finally come back in style in the early 00s with a string of very original, experimental-ish Wyattesque albums.

He always professed a deep admiration for Alan Vega, whom he worked with on several occasions, and even pre-figured Vega's repetitive punkish rockabilly style, on this beautiful occasion:

Him as the loner dandy roaming the Grands Boulevards in search for an open bar:

Fantastic reinvention in 2001:

So long, bambino.

Some great improvisers all just from this week or so: Richard Teitelbaum, synths for Braxton, Lewis, Jenkins, Crispell, et al.; Lee Konitz, saxophonist for Lennie Tristano; Giuseppe Logan, contemporary and label mate of Ayler; and Henry Grimes, bassist for Ayler, Taylor, et al. Not exactly unexpected, but Teitelbaum was still making music, contributing to Crispell's very good Dream Libretto from a couple years ago.

Suggestions:

Joelle Leandre Project by Joelle Leandre


Subconscious-Lee by Lee Konitz


The Giuseppi Logan Quartet by The Giuse...an Quartet


Spirits Rejoice by Albert Ayler Quintet

Losing Konitz, Giuseppe Logan and Henry Grimes within 48 hours is surreal. I swear there was a day not too long ago (mid-2019) where I listened to an album by each of them in the same day.

Fantastic musicians. Heavy rec on this if you haven't heard it:


The Call by Henry Grimes Trio

Harold Reid of the Statler Brothers group is the newest person to go forward.

God bless you and his family and the three remaining members always!!!

No Accommodation For Lagos by Tony Alle... Africa 70


Progress by Tony Allen & Africa 70


Confusion by Fela Kuti & Africa 70


A Tribute To Art Blakey And The Jazz Me...Tony Allen



RIP Tony Allen. This one kinda hit me... absolute legend. Truly one of the best ever. I've probably heard this guy on 50+ albums and not a single one is bad. Afrobeat's sound owes just as much if not more to Tony Allen than Fela Kuti. Without Tony Allen, the genre might not even exist (certainly not the groove). One of my favourite drummers of all time, easy. To lose Allen, Ginger Baker and Manu Dibango so close together is surreal.


Rejoice by Tony Allen & Hugh Masekela

His album last month with the late Masekela is well worth a listen. Hoping people give it a shot. Even at their age they were still both in the top 1% of the game. Sad to see both of them gone.

Yeah. This one cuts deep. He was still making great music. To lose Dibango and Allen in the past month or so is such a blow to afrobeat.
