100 Jahre Django Reinhardt

In texts & reviews on January 23, 2010 by paul

Today, Django Reinhardt, the pioneer of Gypsy Swing and European Jazz in general, would have celebrated his 100th birthday! Please feel welcome to listen to the 3-Minute Radio Piece (german) I made for Radio Bremen. More information about Django you will find here. If you are only in it for the music, this is a collection with a lot of important recordings but without liner notes. For guitarists I can recommend this book, with tabs, a play-along-CD, a biography and texts on his technique as well as guitars. This by the way is a movie about Reinhardt, Woody Allen made, who uses a lot of Reinhardts music in all of his works.

Here you can see how two fingers of Django’s left hand are crippled from a fire of Djangos caravan. Django caused the fire himself by accidentally kicking a candle into the paper flowers his wife produces for a living. More than a year the Sinti Reinhardt had to spent in a hospital. One can call it a miracle, that he developed such a fast and sensitive technique with only three fingers.

LINK: Japanese Vendor explains Rock’n'Roll rhythm

Thank You Jörg, for this wonderful clip:

Japanese vendor is going nuts on keyboard-drums. Funny, but what he says about rock’nRoll rhythm pattern is actually true.

15.1. und 16.1. BERLIN – Life is Live im Hebbel am Ufer

In texts & reviews on January 12, 2010 by paul

A propos Spex und ihre Ex-Herausgeber: Christoph Gurk (nunmehr Kurator Musik im Hebbel am Ufer) macht mal wieder eine feine Popdiskursveranstaltung. Life is Live soll eine Reihe werden, aber schon dieses erste Wochenende allein ist ein Knaller. Die großartige Niobe spielt hier in Berlin selten. Zu Niobe siehe auch diesen Beitrag. Pantha du Prince hat ein neuess romantisches Technoalbum draußen, Whirlpool Productions treten erstmals mit neuem Material auf, nicht nur mit “from disco to disco”. Panda Bear ist einer von Animal Collective. Vorher gibts Diskussionen und Vorträge. Thema in etwa ” Live ist das neue Album”. Simon Frith, Jens Balzer etc. Diskursprominenz. Oder eben nur die Konzerte.

Freitag 15.1.
Pantha du Prince und Panda Bear

Samstag 16.1.
Niobe und Whirlpool Productions
