si, ma che ha senso ha oggi, riproporsi in trio? Odio i déjà vu, manco vado alle cene dei coscritti.
Per non dire quanto la carriera solistica dei tre sia stata negli anni alquanto anonima.

aproparentesi:

‘seahorse and the storyteller’
micheal leonhart and avramina 7

sorprendentemente funky, ogni tanto mi sembra prince ogni tanto un indiavolato crooner, un album bidimensionale come la sua cover, tra voce e fiati in primo piano e l’impianto percussivo incollato dietro…

keytracks: gold fever – dr.killjoy – dream of an acquarian

‘clint’
oddjob

ottima scelta, le soundtrack dei film interpretati da eastwood hanno sempre avuto grandi padri, da morricone a schifrin… grande album, con finale sopra le righe… il tema di scorpio e’ da favola (o da incubo, che dir si voglia…). bella anche la rilettura tra jazz e kraftwerk di the good the bad and the ugly.

keytracks: the good the bad and the ugly – palancio – magnum force theme – scorpio theme

‘liumin’
deepchord presents echospace

un crescendo cosi’, da organismi unicellulari elettronici al trionfo in mare aperto, per giunta registrato in analogico e’ semplicemente da applausi.

‘dagger paths’
forest swords

per quanto ad un primo approccio possa apparire un suono molto spogliato e ‘semplice’ non lo e’… ascoltare e riascoltare dagger paths ne esalta il potere ipnotico e compositivo, ‘quel certo non so che’ che cattura dal primo ascolto

keytracks: miarches, glory gongs, the light

japanese dub
‘jah wobble and the nippon dub ensemble’

ho letto in rete che le esperienze della leggendaria carriera di jah wobble hanno gia’ subito influenze da tutti i continenti… questo arriva dopo le contaminazioni cinesi, proseguendo sulla stessa strada: se qualcosa e’ irrinunciabile, altre (al mio orecchio le tracce cantate in giapponese) niente piu’ che una curatissima e ben fatta escursione nell’assurdo…

keytracks: shinto dub – cherry blossom of my youth – ma – taiko dub

chiudoparentesi
to be continued…

ELP non possono essere discussi? A parte il primo disco, discreto, il resto un tronfio roboante trionfo del nulla buono, forse per il circo equestre e per rincoglionire le platee.
Avere grande tecnica e padronanza strumentale, non produce automaticamente dei capolavori se le idee sono limitate e sterili. In una ideale storia/discoteca del rock anni sessanta/settanta, dei dischi di ELP che più che altro giocano a fare le oche ammaestrate, se ne può tranquillamente fare a meno.

Leonard Cohen’s ‘Songs From The Road’ Showcases Most Outstanding Performances From Ongoing World Tour

In 1999, after an extended break from the spotlight, 64-year old Leonard Cohen returned to the recording studio and world stage with a passion. From then until now, his albums, concerts and DVD releases have informed a new generation. At the same time, Cohen has heroically fulfilled the dreams of his first generation of fans that have been following his career at Columbia Records since his debut LP in 1967.

Following the celebration of his 40th year as a Columbia artist in 2007 and coinciding with his induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in March 2008, Cohen thrilled his fans by announcing his first tour dates in 15 years. He’s gone on to play the most prestigious and beautiful venues in virtually every corner of the globe, mesmerizing and charming audiences with performances that were hailed as some of the best of his career. “When legend Cohen takes to the stage,” raved Ireland’s The Independent (June 2008), “it’s no less than a cultural event of Biblical dimensions.”

One dozen of Leonard Cohen’s most famous songs from those recent world tour performances – at auditorium halls, festivals, arenas, and stadiums from Tel Aviv to London, from across Europe to the California desert and his native Canada – are now collected on SONGS FROM THE ROAD. The 12-song program filmed in high def and recorded in 5.1 surround sound will be issued in two separate packages: The DVD+CD package will be an oversized 2-disc softpak, identical to last year’s Leonard Cohen Live At The Isle Of Wight 1970. The Blu-ray will be in a standard amray case. Both will be available at all retail outlets starting September 14th through Columbia/Legacy, a division of SONY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT. A gatefold, 180 gram vinyl LP of the 12 audio tracks will also be released the same date.

As a bonus, the DVD and Blu-ray configurations will include a 20-minute “behind the scenes” backstage interview with the individual band members. The interviews were conducted by Leonard’s daughter, Lorca Cohen.

The sets also feature two different sets of annotations. One is a rare album liner notes essay written by Leon Wieseltier, literary editor of The New Republic. The other is a detailed track-by-track insider’s commentary written by Ed Sanders, who served as producer of the sound recording and editing, and producer and director of the video recording and editing. “I was there for every rehearsal,” he begins. “I was at every sound check. I was present at every show.”

Sanders’ notes provides precious insight into the selection process for the twelve outstanding performances captured on SONGS FROM THE ROAD. For “Chelsea Hotel” (Royal Albert Hall, London, 11/17/2008), Sanders writes “Between sound check and show time Leonard would often play his guitar in the dressing room. In the early stages of this leg I would find him practicing ‘Chelsea Hotel’. It came as a surprise to everyone (especially those on stage!) when at Rotterdam he launched into it solo after ‘Tower of Song’. He continued to rehearse it with the band until the arrangement was ready. The version presented here is the second full-band performance. At the time I thought it was exceptionally compelling and I told Leonard so during intermission. He replied that he thought it went well; that he could feel the presence of a certain ‘someone’ as he sang it.”

SONGS FROM THE ROAD is not only a tribute to Cohen’s consummate artistry as a concert performer, it is also a tribute to his enduring worldwide popularity at this time in his career. The program complements his 2-disc DVD release of last year, Live In London, recorded on July 17, 2008, at London’s 02 Arena, one of Europe’s largest indoor venues. Live In London marked his first concert collection to be released since the 2001 CD, Field Commander Cohen: Tour of 1979. (Note: The O2 Arena selections on SONGS FROM THE ROAD are from November 2008.)

It is ultimately Cohen’s ageless songs that draw faithful audiences – new fans and old – to his advance sold-out concerts. (The 2008 tour dates sold over 700,000 tickets alone, across 84 shows worldwide.) SONGS FROM THE ROAD represents every decade of his life as a recording artist, from the 1960s (“Suzanne” from his 1967 debut, Songs Of Leonard Cohen; “Bird on the Wire” and his interpretation of “The Partisan” both from his second album, 1969’s Songs From a Room) – to the ’00s (“That Don’t Make it Junk” from 2001’s Ten New Songs).

Along the way, SONGS FROM THE ROAD revisits Cohen’s ‘greatest hits’ from the 1970s (“Famous Blue Raincoat” and “Avalanche” both from 1971’s Songs Of Love and Hate; “Chelsea Hotel” from 1974’s New Skin For the Old Ceremony, and “Lover, Lover, Lover” from the 1979 Field Commander Cohen recordings) – the 1980s (“Hallelujah” and “Heart With No Companion” from 1984’s Various Positions) – and the 1990s (“Waiting for the Miracle” and “Closing Time” from 1992’s The Future.)

“Throughout the show,” Wieseltier concludes in his essay, “it was never clear whose gratitude was greater, Cohen’s or the audience’s. He seemed to find at every stop the sisters of mercy whom he immortalized in one of his oldest and most tender songs…. And now, wherever this precious man wanders, the famous blue raincoat notwithstand¬ing, people sing ‘hallelujah!’ The Psalmist himself could not have asked for more.”

LEONARD COHEN TO PLAY PHNOM PENH ON NOV. 27, 2010
A LEGENDARY ARTIST – A LEGENDARY CITY

(For Immediate Release – June 17, 2010) – To celebrate and contribute to the restoration of the majestic city of Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Leonard Cohen will perform at the Olympic Stadium on November 27, 2010. To aid victims of Cambodia’s recent tragic past, proceeds from this concert will benefit the Cambodian Red Cross and Cambodian persons with a disability. Tickets available online on July 15, 2010.

Leonard Cohen’s November 27th concert will be held under the patronage of His Excellency Samdech Hun Sen, Prime Minister of Cambodia and Lok Chumtuev Bun Rany Hun Sen, President of the Cambodian Red Cross. The performance is produced by The Mekong Sessions in conjunction with Robert Kory Management and AEG Live and is exclusive to the South-East Asian region.

Cohen’s legendary artistry and his performance, referred to by many as a “spiritual experience,” at the architecturally significant Stadium in one of the world’s most intriguing and reemerging cities is intended to be more than just a unique evening of music. As an ordained Buddhist monk, Cohen is known for his affinity for the culture and his commitments to assist those who have suffered from conflict.

“Leonard is deeply honored by this invitation, and we hope that in our small way, we can both assist in cultural restoration and personal healing,” said Robert Kory, Manager to Leonard Cohen. “The world is aware that Phnom Penh, once a cultural Mecca, and its people, suffered a brutal genocide thirty five years ago which ended lives and altered that magnificent city. We are hopeful that the concert may become a first step in celebration of the city’s rebirth as a vibrant cultural centre and serve to aid those who have suffered.”

“This is a landmark event for AEG Live as well as a significant international milestone where Phnom Penh announces its objective to become a premiere performance destination,” said Rob Hallett, President, AEG Live.

Chris Minko, Founder of the Mekong Sessions Concert Series stated, “We wish to convey our gratitude to Mr. Cohen for this epic event that demonstrates that Cambodia has emerged from tragic civil conflict and its tradition of cultural excellence is reborn.”

Phnom Penh’s Olympic Stadium is a rare example of the work of famous Khmer architect Vann Molyvan, whose designs are the current subject of international interest. His distinctive designs combine High Modernism with elements of classical Khmer design and are a reminder of the days of Phnom Penh’s former cultural stature.

ABOUT LEONARD COHEN: Leonard Cohen is a master songwriter, musician and poet whose stunning body of original work has touched the lives of millions with a career spanning five decades. He was inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame (2006) and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (2008) for outstanding work. Cohen’s world tour, which inaugurated in May 2008, is still playing to sold-out crowds.
