    It was 1984 when I got pleasantly surprised with this
    awesome soulful jazzy bluesy record with a number of
    topnotch musicians. They gathered for the occasion,
    composing music on texts of the poet Ishmael Reed.
    The main initiative was taken by Kip Hanrahan who
    also produced and directed the sessions. Allen Toussaint
    flew in from New Orleans to join guys like Taj Mahal, Olu
    Dara and David Murray among others. An album of sweet
    jazz fusion you definitely do not want to miss.
    I just rediscovered it in my collection,
    better get it and spread it ..

    Ik schrijf nu al een tijdje het Engelse stukje ook in het
    Nederlands. Zijn er veel mensen die dit nodig hebben vraag
    ik me soms af. Als je hier veel waarde aan hecht, wil je me dit
    dan laten weten ? Indien dit nauwelijks het geval is, houd ik
    het voortaan bij Engels alleen.

    In 1984 werd ik prettig verrast door dit geweldig fijne soul-
    volle jazz, blues album met een aantal top artiesten. Ze
    kwamen voor de gelegenheid samen om muziek te maken bij
    de woorden van poëet Ishmael Reed. Het initiatief was van Kip
    Hanrahan die de composities schreef en de sessies produceerde.
    Allen Toussaint vloog in uit New Orleans om zich te scharen bij
    de groep waarin Taj Mahal, Olu Dara, en David Murray onder
    anderen. Een fraai stuk jazz fusion dat je absoluut niet zult
    willen missen. Ik herontdekte de plaat in m’n collectie van
    de week. Dus, down, deel en luister ..


    01 – Jes’ grew
    02 – The wardrobe master of paradise
    03 – Dualism (1)
    04 – Oakland blues
    05 – Skydiving
    06 – Judas
    07 – Betty ball’s blues
    08 – Untitled II
    09 – Fool-ology (the song)
    10 – From the files of agent 22
    11 – Dualism (2)
    12 – Rhythm in philosophy

    Some people never quit, others give it up after a period.
    I used to be a viper from 1976 till 2016, when I couldn’t
    stop coughing I’ve never touched it again. I must say, life
    was good in those days, it is even better today. Still, when
    thinking back, a whole lot of crazy stories pop up and make
    me laugh. What are we speaking off? Listen to this marvelous

    meer een korrel aangeraakt. Ik moet zeggen, het leven was
    mooi, maar het is vandaag de dag nog mooier. Als ik terug
    denk echter komen de leukste verhalen naar boven en wordt
    er veel gelachen. Waar we het over hebben ? Luister naar deze
    pracht cd en als jij de ‘reefer man’ kent weet je’t ..

    John Lee Hooker, front

    I could impossibly say it like Leadbelly, so I’ll leave it to him.
    Leadbelly said it this way;
    “Never was a white man had the blues, ’cause nothin’ to worry about.
    Now, you lay down at night. You roll from one side of the bed to the
    other all night long. You can’t sleep.
    What’s the matter ? The blues got you. You get up and sit on the side
    of your bed in the mornin’. You may have a sister and a brother, mother
    and father around, but you don’t want no talk out of ’em.
    What’s the matter ? The blues got you. Well, you go and put your feet
    under the table, look down at your plate, got everything you want to
    eat, but you shake your head, you get up.
    You say, “Lawd I can’t eat and I can’t sleep.”
    What’s the matter ?
    The blues got you. Wanna talk to you.
    Here’s what you gotta tell ’em:
    “Good morning blues, blues how do you do ?
    Good morning blues, blues how do you do ?
    I’m doin’ all right, good mornin’, how are you ?
    I lay down last night, turnin’ from side to side,
    Ohhhhhhhhhh, turnin’ from side to side,
    I was not sick, but I was just dissatisfied.”
    John Lee Hooker is another man who knows what it is to have the
    blues, and how to tell it.
    Proof that he can do so with individual style and dramatic force and
    surging swing is amply displayed in this collection, which must be
    regarded as one of the great blues albums of recent years.”


    1 Walkin’ the boogie
    2 Love blues
    3 Union station blues
    4 It’s my own fault
    5 Leave my wife alone
    6 Ramblin’ by myself
    7 Sugar mama
    8 Down at the landing
    9 Louise
    10 Ground hog blues
    11 High priced woman
    12 Women and money

    dit 'Farka'

    Ali ‘Farka’ Toure was born Ali Ibrahim Touré in Bamako, Mali.
    He was the 10th son but the only one that survived. His parents
    nick-named him ‘Farka’, which means donkey, because he was so
    stubborn and persistant. Famous in all of Africa his music is a blend
    of traditional Malinese and blues. Ali reached worldfame with his ’94
    album ‘Talking Timbuktu’ which he made with Ry Cooder. The album
    was crowned with a Grammy award as was his 2005 album ‘In the heart
    of the Moon’ with Toumani Diabate. He died 66 years old of bonecancer.
    Listen to this 1979 LP on Sonafric, Ali Toure – dit “Farka”.

    Ethel Waters, front

    Since I found this blog with sweet old jazz and other classic
    stuff, I am completely gone listening to it. It’s a time consuming matter
    but I just can’t stop. I bet you know what I mean. This is Ethel Waters,
    she made huge impression on me when this came out. It was released
    in 1989 with recordings from 1934 and ’38. If you like this, better take a look
    here, you’ll find a lot of Ethel Waters and more.


    1 Miss Otis regrets
    2 Dinah
    3 When it’s sleepy time down south
    4 Moonglow
    5 Give me a heart to sing
    6 I ain’t gonna sin no more
    7 Trade mark
    8 You’re going to leave the old home, Jim
    9 You’re a sweetheart
    10 How can I face this wearied world alone
    11 I’ll get along somehow
    12 Miss Otis regrets*
    13 Dinah*
    14 I ain’t gonna sin no more*
    15 How can I face this wearied world alone*
