Concert review: Bahamas Thrills at Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles

Review by Jon Gossard
Afie Jurvanen

Thursday evening, February 21, saw Toronto-based Bahamas visiting the lovely Teragram Ballroom in downtown Los Angeles and performing a sold out show in front of an appreciative audience in support of the recently released Earthtones LP.  

From the first notes of "So Free" to the final strains of "Any Place" over an hour later, the crowd was held in rapture by frontman and songwriter Afie Jurvanen and his able band.  Bassist Darcy Yates and drummer Jason Tait provided rock-steady rhythm for the duration of the show, ranging from the spartan requirements of "Waves" to the deep groove of "Bad Boys Need Love Too," always in pocket, always serving the song and allowing their bandmates to layer above with confidence.  Guitarist Christine Bougie provided tasteful accompaniment all evening long, adding texture throughout and providing several standout solos that built on the melodic elements of each song to create emotional high points.  Playing sans plectrum for the evening, Bougie’s sinewy six-string work provided compelling counterpoint to Jurvanen’s own terrific guitar playing, and at times some of her more staccato lines even reminded this listener of Stevie Wonder’s syncopated keyboard playing.  

A highlight of the evening was Bougie’s delicate work on the lap steel guitar on the haunting "Like A Wind," a dynamic song that makes the most of its quiet-loud-quiet structure.  The sublime Felicity Williams weaved her gorgeous backing vocals throughout each song, treating her voice as another instrument within the band, sometimes mimicking melodic lines in call-and-response with the guitars or soaring into the upper reaches in several spine-tingling moments such as in "No Wrong," and always amazing the audience with her ability to add depth and emotion.  

One ardent admirer of Williams’ in the audience was even called out by Jurvanen, eliciting a shy smile from Williams herself, who perhaps doesn't realize just how important she is to the overall sound of the band.  Not to be outdone, Jurvanen capitalized on the freedom afforded by having a crack band and shined as both guitarist and singer.  One of Jurvanen’s most intriguing qualities is his ability to unleash a line from his guitar that reminds you just how potent of a guitarist he is and yet he always plays within the song, never adding notes for the sake of notes, only playing what he believes the song needs.  

His statements on the guitar throughout the night’s performance were consistently in support of that one thing: the song.  Jurvanen is clearly comfortable as a vocalist as well, playing with the phrasing of his lyrics to the delight of the crowd and hitting upper register notes with ease and emotion, such as on the intense encore-opening "Never Again."  Jurvanen himself commented on the crowd’s respectful appreciation of the music as they provided the silence the songs need to be fully appreciated but also displayed hearty enthusiasm at the many musical and emotional highlights of the evening.  Bahamas continues to tour in support of the wonderful Earthtones and this reviewer strongly recommends that readers experience the band in an intimate environment such as the Teragram sooner than later.  By all rights, Bahamas will be entertaining much larger venues in the near future

New Music: Van Morrison, Tony Banks, Tinsley Ellis

There is a trio of wonderful new releases from decidedly-different corners of the sonic universe to recommend. A concert film featuring Van Morrison, an orchestral album from legendary Genesis keyboardist Tony Banks and a new studio set from bluesman Tinsley Ellis would make welcome additions to any music lover's library. 



Artist: Van Morrison
Title: In Concert (Eagle Rock Entertainment)
You might like if you enjoy: Van Morrison
Tell me more: The newly-released In Concert features a memorable Van Morrison concert filmed at the BBC Radio Theatre in 2016. The iconic singer is backed by a terrific musical cast of players and singers as he explores a stellar catalog that encompasses a mixture of blues, folk, jazz and classic soul. The 76-minute concert includes a few choice hits (including an animated "Wild Night" and jazzy "Brown Eyed Girl," the latter bolstered by Van the Man's sax playing), but the larger joy of this fast-moving performance is in the choice of deep cuts. The gorgeous "Every Time I See A River" (a newer track from his 2016 LP "Keep Me Singing"), spiritual "Whenever God Shines His Light," yearning ballad "Carrying A Torch" (enhanced by Dana Masters' backing vocals) and the set-ending "In The Garden" are among the winning numbers featured during the inviting show. In addition to that main performance, there is a bonus 12-song "Up On Cyprus Avenue" concert filmed on Morrison's 70th birthday. Van Morrison In Concert is now available on both DVD and Blu-ray. Information: eagle-rock.com.



Artist: Tony Banks
Title: 5 (BMG)
You might like if you enjoy: Rick Wakeman, composer Howard Shore
Tell me more: As a founding member of Genesis, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Tony Banks is recognized for his work as a keyboardist and songwriter with that legendary progressive rock group. Fans of Genesis can catch up with Banks via his extraordinary new orchestral album titled 5. The disc's opener "Prelude to a Million Years" is an ambitious piece that draws favorable comparisons with Howard Shore's riveting score of the  "Lord of the Rings" trio of films; however, Bank's piece was actually commissioned for the 70th Cheltenham Music Festival in 2014. The success of that work's world premiere on July 5, 2014 under the baton of conductor Maxime Tortelier with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra was the genesis of 5. The five track album marks Banks' 10th album apart from his work with Genesis, and the emotional weight and beauty of the work here is lavishly delivered by the Czech National Symphony Orchestra and Choir along with conductor Nick Ingman. Produced by long-time collaborator Nick Davis, "5" features an intoxicating blend of symphonic textures and forays. The nuanced "Reveille," aptly-titled "Ebb & Flow," the cinematic "Autumn Sonata" and a reworking of the exhilarating Genesis-era composition "Renaissance" fill out the wonderful 5. The album is set for release on Feb. 23, 2018. Information: TonyBanksMusic.com.



Artist: Tinsley Ellis
Title: Winning Hand
You might like if you enjoy: Eric Clapton, Tommy Castro, Gary Moore
Tell me more: Fans of electric blues music  and great guitar playing  should check out Tinsley Ellis' new album Winning Hand. "The Sound of a Broken Man" is the album's first entry, and Ellis' fiery guitar work impresses with every phrase. But that proves to be just the beginning, as the Atlanta native offers up scorching performances that showcase his virtuoso chops and artistic touch where even the most blistering lead solos come in the service of solid songs. The tender "Gamblin' Man" showcasing Ellis' outstanding baritone vocals, the playful "I Got Mine," old time Southern rocker blaster "Satisfied" that joyfully explodes out of the stereo speaker, and gentle R&B "Don't Turn Off the Light" are among the must hear tracks on the aptly-dubbed "Winning Hand." Ellis will headline at The Coach House, 33157 Camino Capistrano, San Juan Capistrano, at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2018. Admission is $15. Information: www. www.TinsleyEllis.com and TheCoachHouse.com.

Rock Legend Todd Rundgren Headlines Cleopatra Records First Ever SXSW Showcase!
Los Angeles, CA - One of the few remaining truly independent, privately owned record labels in existence today, L.A.-based Cleopatra Records has been championing underground music and outsider artists since its inception in 1992. Now, the label has teamed up with the biggest music festival dedicated to discovering and promoting new talent, SXSW, to announce the first ever official Cleopatra Records showcase. 

Headlining this special event is legendary songwriter/producer/guitarist, Todd Rundgren, an artist well known for pushing the boundaries of rock and pop with his distinctive flair for the eccentric and unusual. Todd’s newest album, White Knight, was released by Cleopatra Records in May of last year and features guest performances by Trent Reznor, Robyn, Joe Satriani & Daryl Hall.

In addition to Rundgren, the showcase will also bring together some of the label’s newest acts including dreamwave artist Pastel Ghost, whose first album Abyss has been reissued by Cleopatra and will also see their forthcoming album released later this year on the label. Alternative metal cabaret act from Mexico, Descartes A Kant, partnered with Cleopatra for their newest album Victims Of Love Propaganda in May of last year while L.A.’s own death rock architects, Egrets On Ergot, released Surfeit Of Germütlich last October. Electronic duo United Ghosts will issue their Cleopatra debut later this year while local Texas band Nite, consisting of twin brothers Kyle and Myles Mendez, saw their newest release Rebornlaunched in July of 2016. Each of these bands demonstrates the label’s fondness for uniquely creative acts and a commitment to supporting truly artist-driven music.

The official SXSW showcase for Cleopatra Records will be held at Elysium in downtown Austin, TX on March 15th. The first band will start at 8pm.

'The Who Live at the Fillmore East 1968' coming to vinyl and CD on April 20, 2018

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of The Who's legendary performances at the Fillmore East in New York in April 1968, a lavish double audio CD / Triple Vinyl edition release of The Who Live at the Fillmore East is set for release on April 20, 2018 courtesy of Geffen/UMe. I can't wait to hear this release when it is issued this spring; the live recording includes three (!) Eddie Cochran numbers ("My Way," "Summertime Blues" and "C'mon Everybody"). Here is the full media release...


THE WHO LIVE AT THE FILLMORE EAST 1968

RESTORED AND REMASTERED FOR THE SHOW’S 50th ANNIVERSARY

DOUBLE CD / TRIPLE VINYL RELEASED ON GEFFEN/UME
APRIL 20, 2018


The Who were in New York to conclude a gruelling tour on April 4, 1968, the day that Dr Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. America was already a country divided; Anti-Vietnam demonstrations, civil rights disturbances and militant student activism. With this turmoil as a backdrop on Friday and Saturday, April 5th & 6th, 1968, The Who performed two incendiary live sets at Bill Graham’s legendary Fillmore East on the lower East Side of Manhattan.

The venue had only just re-opened in March by Graham from its previous incarnation as the Village Theatre where the band had played on a couple of occasions the year before. The Who was the first British rock act to headline the Fillmore East and were booked to play four shows over the two nights. However, because of feared social unrest in the wake of Dr King’s assassination, it was decided to compact the shows into one per night.

The Who’s time in New York City in 1968 can best be described as ‘lively.’ Keith Moon’s antics with cherry bomb explosives had meant that the band had to move hotels. When installed in at the plush Waldorf Astoria he then somehow managed to a blow a door off its hinges and, the band had to move once more.

On the morning of the Fillmore rehearsal, the band was photographed for Life magazine and legend has it that the band was so tired from Moon’s antics that they nodded out under the large Union Jack draped over them at the base of the Carl Schurz Monument in Morningside Park. This iconic image was later used as the cover and poster for The Who’s classic film The Kids Are Alright.

Both nights were recorded by Who manager Kit Lambert with the intention of releasing the results as The Who’s fourth album after The Who Sell Out and before Tommy. Disaster struck when it was discovered that due to faulty equipment or human error only part of the first night was captured. Thankfully the second night was recorded and has now been fully restored and mixed by long time Who sound engineer Bob Pridden (who was responsible the band’s sound on those nights in 1968) from the original four-track tapes. For the 50th anniversary of these legendary shows, the unreleased recordings are to be issued on double CD and triple vinyl.

Thanks to an acetate reaching the bootleg market in the early ‘70s, The Who’s reputation as rock’s most dynamic live act quickly grew. The show is regarded by fans as something of the ‘holy grail’ of Who live shows equalling the legendary Live At Leeds album. The tapes have been meticulously remastered for optimum sound quality and will only serve to enhance The Who’s reputation as the best live act of the time.

The 2CD 3LP sets include three Eddie Cochran numbers; “My Way,” “Summertime Blues” and the never before released Who version of “C’mon Everybody.”

Also featured is a rare cover version of “Fortune Teller” written by Allen Toussaint, originally recorded by Benny Spellman but made famous by The Rolling Stones. These shows also showcased “Tattoo” and “Relax” from The Who Sell Out as well as stunning extended versions of “A Quick One” and “My Generation” which becomes a 30-minute jam with a the climax of guitar-smashing and drum demolishment!

CD; 2 x CD deluxe edition 6-panel digipak 12-page booklet including new liner notes and rare photos.

Vinyl; Deluxe 3 x LP heavyweight vinyl, gatefold sleeve, three printed inner bags & new liner notes and rare photos.

David Byrne Releases "This Is That" off "American Utopia"

Here is an update on David Byrne's upcoming 'American Utopia' album and news about his 2018 tour, including the sold-out dates at Coachella in April...


DAVID BYRNE RELEASES NEW TRACK “THIS IS THAT

AMERICAN UTOPIA OUT MARCH 9
ON TODOMUNDO/NONESUCH RECORDS

WORLD TOUR ANNOUNCED

Photo Credit: Jody Rogac

Today, Friday, February 16, 2018, David Byrne has released “This Is That,” the latest track from his forthcoming album American Utopia, out March 9 on Todomundo / Nonesuch Records. Of the track, David noted. “This Is That” was co-written and produced by Daniel Lopatin and is available to download instantly with pre-orders of American Utopia on iTunes and nonesuch.com. Additionally, the track can be purchased/streamed as a standalone here.


Uncut named “This Is That” The Month’s Best New Music saying, “‘This highlight from American Utopiafinds Byrne teaming up with Daniel Lopatin aka Oneohtrix Point Never; over resonant, distant electronic drums and samples of Chinese folk instruments, Byrne channels the imagery of gospel music, but with a modern twist[…]  One of the best songs of Byrne’s storied career”.

This past month, Byrne has been in Europe presenting “Reasons To Be Cheerful,” an ongoing series he curates of hopeful writings, photos, music, and lectures. Watch a stream of the presentation given at New York’s New School last month via David’s Facebook page. 

More about American Utopia
While David Byrne has collaborated on joint releases with Eno, Norman Cook (aka Fatboy Slim), and most recently St. Vincent over the past decade, American Utopia is Byrne’s first solo album since, 2004’s Grown Backwards, also on Nonesuch. American Utopia morphed during the writing and recording process, beginning with longtime collaborator Eno, and eventually growing to include collaboration with producer Rodaidh McDonald (The xx, King Krule, Sampha, Savages) alongside a diverse cast of creative contributors including Daniel Lopatin (aka Oneohtrix Point Never), Jam City, Thomas Bartlett (St. Vincent producer, aka Doveman), Jack Peñate, and others. The album was recorded in New York City at David’s home studio, Reservoir Studios, Oscilloscope, XL Studios, and Crowdspacer Studio and in London at Livingston Studio 1.
The album packaging features the work of “outsider artist” Purvis Young, whose work was often a blend of painting/drawing and collaged elements comprised of everyday found objects. A painting depicting a head with a face of indeterminate race or possibly gender—dreaming, meditating, contemplating—is on the album’s cover.

David Byrne’s recent works include Joan of Arc: Into the Fire, a theatrical exploration of the historical heroine which premiered at The Public Theater in New York (2017); The Institute Presents: NEUROSOCIETY, a series of interactive environments created in conjunction with PACE Arts + Technology that question human perception and bias (2016); Contemporary Color, an event inspired by the American folk tradition of color guard and performed at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and Toronto’s Air Canada Centre (2015); Here Lies Love, a twenty-two-song theatrical production about the life of Imelda Marcos, authored in collaboration with Fatboy Slim that premiered at The Public Theater in New York (2013), traveled to London’s National Theater for a sold-out run (201415), and was remounted at the Seattle Repertory Theater (2017); Love This Giant, a studio album and worldwide tour created with St. Vincent (2012); and How Music Works, a book about the history, experience, and social aspects of music (2012). In 2015 Byrne curated Southbank Centre’s annual Meltdown festival in London. Aco-founder of the group Talking Heads (1976–88), he has released nine studio albums and worked on multiple other projects, including collaborations with Brian Eno, Twyla Tharp, Robert Wilson, and Jonathan Demme, among others. He also founded the highly respected record label Luaka Bop. Recognition of Byrne’s various works include Obies, Drama Desk, Lortel, and Evening Standard awards for Here Lies Love, an Oscar, Grammy, and Golden Globe for the soundtrack to Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Last Emperor, and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Talking Heads. Byrne has published and exhibited visual art since his college days, including photography, filmmaking and writing. He lives in New York City.
