DON PERRY
By Don Perry
Jazz Supergroup featuring Chuck Loeb-Guitar and Harvey Mason-Drums
from fOURPLAY, joining forces with the dynamic Tony Monaco-Hammond
B-3 Organ, for 2 Big Nights at Nighttown!
August 19th and 20th
This is an event not to be missed, by any jazz enthusiast or student of the art! Be it guitar, drums or
organ, this trio of Masters will enlighten even the finest musician in the intimate “Music Room” at Nighttown. Visit www.
nighttowncleveland.com for ticket information.
Chuck Loeb
Grammy nominated guitarist, composer, and producer; Chuck Loeb has had a musical career that spans over four decades. He is a #1 jazz
recording artist; composer of over 250 published songs, network television show themes and scores; a producer of over thirty world-renowned
recording artists, as well as an in-demand clinician and educator. With the 2013 release of “Silhouette”, his eighteenth solo CD, Loeb has attained
the much sought after position as one of the most in demand artists in the world. He is also a member one of the world’s premier jazz groups
“fOURPLAY” and the ground breaking fusion band “Metro”. He hails from Nyack, NY and studied guitar, composition and arranging at The
Berklee College of Music.
Loeb credits Stan Getz as one of his major influences. Getz gave Chuck one of his first big breaks in the world of music and he later spent
several years touring and recording with the jazz legend
Over the course of his career, Loeb has played and toured with a long list of jazz, pop, rock, and classical greats: Hubert Laws, Chico
Hamilton, Freddie Hubbard, Ray Barretto, Gary Burton, Wayne Shorter and the aforementioned Stan Getz among many others. He has also
written music for, performed on albums by, and produced recordings for Bob James, Michael Franks, Carly Simon, Dave Grusin, Bob Dylan,
Art Garfunkel, Johnny Mathis, Spyro Gyra, Keiko Matsui, Anita Baker, Pat Martino, Jeff Lorber, Everette Harp, , Kim Waters, Walter Beasley,
Jennifer Hudson, Grover Washington, just to name a few.
Chuck’s latest solo release “Silhouette” features his family, with his wife Carmen Cuesta singing certain selections, a duet with daughter
Lizzy Loeb, and a haunting original co- penned with daughter Christina Loeb, who is also featured on Ukulele. The title “Silhouette” (The shape
and outline of someone or something visible against a light background) is meant to evoke the idea that Chuck’s musical life has been shaped and
outlined by the light of his experiences, relationships, and influences throughout his career, and a nod of appreciation to the music and musicians
that helped get him where he is today.
Harvey Mason
Born in Atlantic City, New Jersey on February 22, 1947, Harvey Mason’s biography is nothing short of astounding. He began taking formal
drum lessons at age 7, playing in school bands and finally buying his first drum set at the age of 16. Harvey continued his musical education
first at the Berklee School of Music, then on full scholarship to the New England Conservatory of Music, studying performance, composing,
arranging, percussion and mallets.
Harvey has been hired by everyone from Barbra Streisand to James Brown. From Herbie Hancock to Frank Sinatra, even the London
Symphony Orchestra. He has also been the first call drummer for the Academy Awards ceremonies on 25 occasions. He has laid down the
rhythm for countless landmark albums, including Herbie Hancock’s million-seller “Head Hunters”, which contained the hit “Chameleon” (cocomposed by Harvey), George Benson’s triple-platinum selling “Breezin”, which became the best-selling (real) jazz album of all-time, Grover
Washington Jr.’s “Mister Magic” and even Carlos Santana’s first jazz album, “The Swing of Delight”.
Mason’s precision playing has also graced movie soundtracks for such renowned composers as Michel Colombier (Prince’s Purple Rain),
Dave Grusin (Three Days of The Condor, The Fabulous Baker Boys and On Golden Pond), John Williams (Hook), Alan Silvestri (Who Framed
Roger Rabbit), Alan Menken and Tim Rice (Beauty and The Beast), Thom Newman (the Player), Lion King and Mission Impossible 1, 2 & 3,
again, just to name a few.
Harvey is a founding member of the contemporary jazz “super group” ƒOURPLAY , where he flexes his writing, playing, arranging and
production skills with partners Bob James, Nathan East and Chuck Loeb ƒOURPLAY’s debut album sat atop Billboard’s Contemporary Jazz chart
for thirty-four weeks, leading to a platinum album
Tony Monaco
A native of Columbus, Ohio, Tony Monaco began playing accordion at age eight. When he was twelve, his destiny as a jazz organist was
sealed when he first heard Jimmy Smith. An enthusiastic student, Tony began working in local Jazz clubs as a teenager, guided by local organ
gurus Hank Marr and Don Patterson. On his sixteenth birthday, Tony’s prayers were answered. He received an encouraging phone call from
Jimmy Smith, who soon became his Mentor/Teacher. Four years later, Jimmy invited Tony to come play at his club in California--a peak lifetime
experience for Tony.
From 1980 to 2006, Tony stood by family and worked in the family businesses as he played music on a part-time basis. During this period he
also married and raised three daughters.
In April 2000, Monaco met fellow jazz organist Joey DeFrancesco, who offered to produce a debut CD for him. This collaboration resulted in
the critically acclaimed “Burnin Grooves”. The international success of the recording served as the catalyst for regional and national tours. This
success was followed by two more releases for Summit Records that received critical acclaim and significant sales, charting in the Jazzweek Top
10. In September 2003, Summit Records released “A New Generation”, a unique recording featuring both Tony’s and Joey DeFrancesco’s Trios.
They recorded the project using two “Hammond-Suzuki New B3’s” as Tony was awarded a major endorsement role with Hammond and Suzuki.
As Tony’s reputation has grown, he has been blessed to play with some of greatest musicians in jazz, including Mel Lewis, Lewis Nash, Red
Holloway, Sonny Fortune, Bruce Forman, Harvey Mason, Chester Thompson, Jeff Clayton, Terrell Stafford, Eric Alexander, Peter Bernstein,
Victor Lewis and even George Benson. Tony has also just recently ended nearly two and a half years of playing world tours with Pat Martino.
An ardent student of the organ, it’s no surprise that Tony is an accomplished teacher as well. In addition to private students, classes and clinics,
Tony has produced a series of instructional DVDs titled “Playing Jazz Hammond” that have quickly become indispensable for any serious student
of the organ. Tony has decided to expand his catalogue and has created MotherHenMusicEd.com and now has a system of giving lessons one on
one, online to anyone, from anywhere around the globe! Tony Monaco is now Hammond/Suzuki’s prime instrument endorser worldwide.

By Cat Lilly
Blues Cruise 2015
The third annual Cleveland Blues
Society “Blues Cruise” went off without
a hitch on Monday, July 13th. The sky was
threatening rain all day, but at the
last minute Cleveland dodged
the bullet and the storm
splintered off to the north
and south. The sun came out
for a picture perfect evening
along the shoreline of Lake
Erie, and the blues lovers waiting
in line for the cruise put away their
umbrellas and got ready to party!
What can be said about the
music? Top notch! Having the cruise
on a Monday evening is a smart
move, as a “cream of the crop” band
of Cleveland’s blues all-stars can be
assembled, and the wealth of talent up
on that stage was amazing. The music
was non-stop, beginning even before the
8
cruise as blues buskers entertained the crowd lining up
to board. Onboard the jam was contained to the lower
deck, but could be heard all over the boat, on all four
decks. Finger food and drinks were readily available
on the cruise, and the upper two decks are open-air and
smoking.
Austin “Walkin’ Cane” and Kristine Jackson
started out the jam, with Norm Tischler joining in
on sax. Becky Boyd took the stage and really got the
boat rockin’ with “Let the Good Times Roll”! “Crazy”
Marvin Braxton was next up, adding some Zydeco flavor to the mix. Rotating guitar players
throughout the evening included Alan Greene, Bob Frank, Don Baker, Butch Armstrong, and
Michael Bay. The Armstrong Bearcats did a set, with Mike Barrick on bass and Billy Coakley
on drums. Bob Frank got things swingin’ on a set with Blue Lunch alumni Norm Tischler and
Raymond DeForest on bass. Drum duty was graciously handled by Mike “Daddy Sweet Roll”
D’elia, with a little relief from John Adams. Colin Dussault closed out the jam as only a real
bluesman can, and special kudos to his long-time keyboardist Greg Hurd, who pretty much
pulled piano duty all evening, accompanying just about everyone!
Seeing all these great players onstage together for one night really gives one a sense
www.northcoastvoice.com • (440) 415-0999
July 29 - August 12, 2015
of pride in our blues community here
in northeast Ohio. I would put these
musicians up against players in any big
city in the nation; they have heart, they
have soul, and they have perseverance.
And they have the blues!!!
The city skyline is breathtaking
from the decks of the Goodtime III,
peppered with historical landmarks and
reminders of times gone by, of industry
and immigrants and all the hardworking
people who make up a city. The Blues
Cruise is a fantastic way to celebrate the
blues genre, born in the
rural South but raised in
the northern cities, where
poor folks of all colors
came in search of a better
life. If you have not yet
experienced the annual
Cleveland Blues Society
Blues Cruise, I highly
recommend you put it on
your bucket list for next
year!

MMPA BASH
Walnut Beach • Ashtabula, Ohio
Blues at the Music Box Supper Club
Friday, August 14 Travis Haddix Blues Band – Lucky 7 Concert Series - $7 ticket includes
a craft cocktail du jour!
Travis “Moonchild” Haddix‘s style evokes the sounds of the great Stax-Volt days, when the
likes of Sam & Dave ruled the urban blues roost. The fiery, award-winning blues guitarist began
playing the piano at the age of seven in his home town of Walnut, Mississippi. The turning point
in his musical learning experience came the next year, when the legendary B.B. King came to
Memphis and began playing daily at the studios of WDIA. Awed by King’s guitar virtuosity,
Haddix hung around the radio station every day to learn all he could. In 1959, he moved to
Cleveland, Ohio, where he joined the D.L. Rocco Band and achieved regional notoriety that
led to a prominent spot with the Little Johnnie Taylor group. Haddix has also contributed to
five albums by Artie “Blues Boy” White, while his material has also been covered by Dickie
Williams, Jimmy Dawkins, Michael Burks, Charles Wilson, the late Son Seals, and Lee Shot
Williams. Supper Club
Thursday, August 27 Jimmy Thackery – Rockin’ blues guitarist guaranteed to leave
crowds emotionally spent
Whether Jimmy Thackery headlines a festival in South Dakota or jams for hours in one
of numerous blues bars that dot the musical landscape, he’ll always unleash an intense volley
of rockin’ blues guitar guaranteed to leave crowds emotionally spent. His double edged guitar
dynamics allow him to fire off tracer missiles, bend a note so it will fit under a limbo bar, run
off dive bomber riffs, and find space within the trembling of one stinging note. “I put all my
senses on hold and find the zone and follow what’s inside. There’s an electricity from your mind
to your heart to your fingers. You just try and remember to breathe.”
He’s one of the few blues guitarists who learned first-hand from the masters of the blues,
not off a blues record or DVD. Though most associate Jimmy with his 15 years as the cofounder of the Nighthawks, he ended his time with them in 1987. Since then, Jimmy has been
on the road as a solo musician for 15 years doing nearly 300 shows a year proving each night
that he is still the guitar powerhouse in the blues. Supper Club
Friday, August 28 Slowhand: A Tribute to Eric Clapton –two full sets packed with
favorites from Eric Clapton
Slowhand – Tim Askin And Band Perform The Music Of Eric Clapton
Graffiti declaring “Clapton is God” first and most famously appeared in London in 1967.
Tellingly, the same statement has been spray-painted in Cleveland for decades, most visibly
for years on a west-side I-90 overpass. SLOWHAND performs the music of Eric Clapton
with an almost religious reverence. Guitarist Tim Askin, frontman of longstanding Cleveland
bands Sultans of Bing and Into The Blue, has performed onstage with legendary artists like Bo
Diddley, Bernie Worrell, and Phil Keaggy. A lifelong Clapton devotee, Askin brings an extra
level of care to the performance of Clapton’s music live, and has assembled a top-notch band
of musicians and vocalists to realize the full scope of the live experience of Clapton’s catalogue
as much as possible. Past appearances of this band have met with rave reviews. The group will
perform two full sets packed with favorites from the only three-time Rock n Roll Hall of Fame
inductee — Eric Clapton. Concert Hall
The Music Box is located at Music Box Supper Club 1148 Main Avenue Cleveland, OH 44113

By Helen Marketti
Interview with iconic photographer,
Henry Diltz
We have undoubtedly poured over favorite album covers, concert photos, and music
magazines to absorb details of the images. When we see a certain photo, we are taken right back
to that moment in our lives, how we felt, the music that was playing and what was going on in
our lives. Henry Diltz, music photographer can be given credit for many of those iconic images
that we have seen and come to know as an old friend.
“I was in a folk band at first but after The Beatles played The Ed Sullivan Show then we
went electric and became a folk rock
band,” laughed Henry. “My group was
The Modern Folk Quartet. I played
the banjo, harmonica and clarinet.
We were together for about five years
and released two albums with Warner
Brothers. We toured nearly every state
and played mostly for college audiences.
In 1966, we took a break. The other guys
became record producers and I became a
photographer.”
“We had done a concert in Lansing,
Michigan. We were touring in a motor
home and pulled up to a second hand
store. A table was set up with an
assortment of used cameras for sale. One of the guys said he was going to buy a camera and
I thought I would, too,” recalls Henry. “We were bored and looking for something to do. We
took pictures of everything such as cows in a pasture, a junkyard and so forth. I thought it was
fun. I didn’t realize how much fun it really was until we returned to LA, got the film developed
and had a slide show at my house. It was at that moment when I realized that I was definitely
going to be taking more pictures because I liked how they looked. Seeing those images was like
being right back where we were. Every week I would take photographs and then have a slide
show. There were usually around thirty or forty people who would come over and they would
comment how much they liked the photos.”
“Among my friends were Cass Elliot (The Mamas & The Papas), David Crosby and Stephen
Stills. I knew these people because we had all lived in the Laurel Canyon neighborhood and
were fellow musicians,” said Henry. “The first photo that I ever got paid for was of Buffalo
Springfield. I had met up with Stephen Stills in Laurel Canyon one afternoon and he invited me
to go with them to Redondo Beach as they were going to do a sound check at a club. I agreed
to go because I wanted to take pictures at the beach
so I would have images to use for my weekly slide
show. It never occurred to me at the time to take their
picture. (laughs) After some time at the beach, I went
back to the club. I noticed a big, colorful mural in the
back of the building. It was a huge painting of a man
riding a bicycle. I thought it was cool so I decided to
take a picture. Shortly after, the guys from Buffalo
Springfield walked out the backdoor and I asked them
if they would stand against the wall because I wanted
people to see the size of the mural. That was my first
accidental rock and roll shot. Teen Set Magazine
contacted me about the photo and said they would
pay me $100 because they wanted to use it in their
publication and that is how it all started. People refer
to me as a rock and roll photographer but I consider
myself a music photographer because not all music is
rock and roll.”
Henry takes a few minutes to share what he thinks
made the 60s a special era and why people are still
interested. “It was a flowering renaissance of singer
songwriters. Musicians such as Bob Dylan and The
Beatles were writing and recording their own material.
That was a sea change. We now have singers who are

singing their own thoughts and
feelings. I think of Joni Mitchell
and Both Sides Now, Stephen
Stills and Love the One You’re
With, James Taylor and Sweet
Baby James, which I believe was
written for his nephew. This kind
of concept was new in those days.
I once asked Jackson Browne
why he thought the 60s were so
interesting to people and he said,
“Because it was new.” We now
take that for granted.”
It was indeed a time of fresh
ideas, concepts and connections.
“We all used to hang out at The Troubadour which was a club in Hollywood. We went there
every night,” remembers Henry. “One night I ran across David Crosby and he introduced me to
Gene Clark who had just arrived from Missouri. He said they were going to form a band and call
themselves The Beefeaters (laughs) which they later became known as The Byrds.”
Henry was good friends with Cass Elliot. “She was warm, witty, funny and intelligent. She
was an earth mother who liked to take care of everyone,” said Henry. “She was also responsible
for bringing people together. She introduced Graham Nash to Stephen Stills and David Crosby
which they went on to form Crosby, Stills and Nash.”
He continues, “I also recall one summer I was in New York City shooting the Lovin’
Spoonful when Cass called and wanted to know if we were going to be around for a little while
because she had some friends she wanted to bring over. Well, she brought over The Hollies!
They were on tour and didn’t know anyone so they were just staying in their hotel room. She
already had met them because they were on the same TV show with The Mamas and The Papas.
Anyway, she brought them over and we had a great afternoon. We shared stories and drank
margaritas. That is when I had first met Graham Nash. He commented how they needed pictures
so I took a few shots of them and one of the photos was used as an album cover for The Hollies
in England. One thing always leads to another but you have to be open to it and wise enough to
see it.”
Henry had always preferred
color images as opposed to
black and white but over the
years, he has changed his mind.
“In the beginning I had no use
for black and white. I wanted
my images to project and so I
preferred color shots. The more
photos I took of bands, the press
wanted black and white images
because newspapers couldn’t
print color,” he said. “Now
almost 50 years later and I have
to say that I do like the black
and white images better. There’s
something evocative about the
images that draw you in. I think
you could compare it between radio and television.”
2016 will make the 50th year that Henry has been taking photographs. “People are always
contacting me for use of my photos for various projects which is great!” Henry is co-owner of
the Morrison Hotel Gallery with locations in LA and New York. He will be going on tour for a
few show dates in September with the lovely Pattie Boyd. Pattie was once married to George
Harrison and then later to Eric Clapton. She is one of 125 photographers that have images at
Morrison Hotel Gallery. “We thought we would try to take the images on the road, give a talk
and see how this works. Right now we have a few dates scheduled in September which includes
Chicago and New York City.” The show is called “Behind The Lens” which features images
from both Pattie and Henry mixed in with sharing stories and good times. If anyone were
interested in planning a road trip this would be a great event to add to your traveling calendar.
Henry never seems to have a dull moment. “I am working on some lay outs for a few books.
I stop and look back at all that has happened, the pictures I took and think of it as a happy
accident. It all happened at the right place at the right time.”

The Ohio Celtic Festival to Shake, Rattle
& Roll Classic Park August 7, 8 & 9
The Ohio Celtic Festival returns for its fourth year to Lake County, OH bringing with it an
impressive line-up of more than 150 Irish musicians, singers, bagpipe bands and dancers from
across the US and around the world. The festival will take place on August 7, 8 and 9 at its new

Five stages of live entertainment will be going on all weekend long, with big-name headliners
sure to amp up the energy and excitement.
Headlining the event will be the Willis Clan, an Irish family of fourteen musicians,
dancers, writers and artists who will provide their unique blend of Irish music with other genres
to the Festival. In addition to their musical career, the family is also featured on a reality show

Acclaimed actor, singer and star of Broadway’s Phantom of the Opera, Dublin-born Ciaran
Sheehan will warm the hearts and sooth the souls of his audience with every performance.
Fresh off their Celtic Thunder Cruise and 32-City nationwide tour will be Celtic Thunder’s
Emmett O’Hanlon and Emmet Cahill. Not only will loyal fans get to enjoy musical
performances by these guys, the Festival has arranged for a separate “Meet and Greet” event
with these ever-popular artists.
Off-Kilter, a high energy progressive Celtic Rock band and a fan-favorite at Epcot’s
Canadian Pavilion in Walt Disney World will deliver rocked up traditional Celtic tunes and
rock’n’roll favorites.
The Elders have toured worldwide and will return with their Irish American folk rock style.
Their songs are “mystical, comical, political and cultural” with American roots and “amped-up
Celtic folk.”
New to this year’s festival will be live cooking demonstrations by author and Chef Eric
W. McBride from the Celtic Caterer. Classically educated in Celtic history and literature, Chef

Hot night at Nautica with Tedeschi Trucks
Last time the Tedeschi Trucks Band played
Jacobs Pavilion was on a cool September evening.
Everyone had to bundle up—even fiery-fingered
guitarist Derek Trucks, who wore a scarf and
jacket for the show. Not so with the group’s nearcapacity Nautica concert Sunday night July 19th.
The heat was sweltering.
Fortunately, so was the band.
Co-headlining the Wheels of Soul tour with
Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Trucks and wife
Susan Tedeschi thrilled with another marathon
romp through a dozen burly, blues-based covers
and spirited originals from their two excellent
studio albums, Revelator (2011) and Made Up
Mind (2013).
Wearing a T-shirt and black banks, the
ponytailed Trucks grinded all night on his Gibson
SG guitar, ripping through The Box Tops’ Dear
John anthem “The Letter” (as popularized by Joe
Cocker), foregoing a conventional pic to pluck
the strings with his fingers (or grease them with
a glass slide). He’s still a phenomenal player
(son of Allman Brothers drummer Butch), having
been something of a guitar prodigy as a kid—like
Johnny Lang and Kenny Wayne Shepherd, albeit more jam-oriented.
Spouse Susan is no slouch on six-string, either. Wearing a summer dress (with little dogs
pattered thereon) Tedeschi tweaked a Fender Stratocaster with the band, sometimes trading solos
with her softs-spoken hubby. She’s also the band’s designated lead vocalist, and showed off
tremendous Janis Joplin-esque pipes on “Made Up Mind” and (Derek & The Dominos cover)
“Keep on Growing.” But others in the group (like Mike Mattison) enjoyed a stint singing lead,
too.
Revelator track “Midnight in Harlem” was
poignant as ever, and showcased the sultry horn
section (sax, trumpet, and trombone). Trucks
transformed Betty Harris’ 1969 gem “(There’s
A) Break in the Road” with a jagged riff before
embarking on a crisp solo—after which the
group’s two drummers (Tyler Greenwell and J.J.
Johnson) went into double-time. Coasters classic
“Let’s Go Get Stoned” relied on keyboardist Kofi
Burbridge’s eloquent piano and organ gestures
between the guitar pyrotechnics. Later, Kofi
broke out his flute.
Dusting off a selection from his solo career,
Trucks raged on “Get What You Deserve,”
abusing his SG while Tedeschi and the backup
singers conspired, gospel-like, on the karmic
chorus. Elmore James / Stevie Ray Vaughan
entry “The Sky Is Crying” gave Tedeschi another
turn in the vocal spotlight, soaring, chanteuselike as bassist Tim Lefebve pumped rhythm over
the tandem percussion.

The Wood Brothers Coming to Kent Stage

The Kent Stage is proud to
announce that the Wood Brothers
will perform at the Kent Stage on
Tuesday, September 29th, 2015
at 8pm. All tickets are general
admission.
The cover of The Wood
Brothers’ gorgeous new album,
‘Paradise,’ is adorned with an
illustration of a mule staring at a
carrot dangling just inches in front
of its mouth. The carrot, though, is
hanging from a stick affixed to the
mule’s own head.

got it,” explains guitarist Oliver
Wood. “And in some ways, he’ll
never have it.”
That paradox is at the core of
‘Paradise,’ an album about longing
and desire and the ways in which
the pursuit of fulfillment can keep
it perpetually out of our reach. It’s a beautiful collection, the band’s most sophisticated work to
date and also their most rocking, with bassist Chris Wood playing electric on tracks for the first
time. Recorded at Dan Auerbach’s Easy Eye studio in Nashville, ‘Paradise’ captures the latest
chapter in the ongoing evolution of a band-and a family-navigating the joy and challenges of a
life in music.
Dubbed “masters of soulful folk” by Paste, The Wood Brothers released their debut studio
album, ‘Ways Not To Lose,’ on Blue Note in 2006. You’d be forgiven at the time for expecting
it to be something of a side project. Chris Wood already had legions of devoted fans for his
incomparable work as one-third of Medeski Martin & Wood, while his brother Oliver toured
with Tinsley Ellis before releasing a half-dozen albums with his band King Johnson. Almost a
decade later and with drummer Jano Rix added as a permanent third member, it’s become quite
clear that The Wood Brothers is indeed the main act.
‘Paradise’ follows the band’s acclaimed 2013 release ‘The Muse,’ which was recorded
almost entirely live around a tree of microphones in Zac Brown’s Southern Ground studio.
Hailed previously by the New York Times for their “gripping” vocals and by the LA Times for
their “taught musicianship,” the brothers found the live setting to be a remarkable showcase for
their live chemistry and charismatic magnetism. But when it came time to record ‘Paradise,’
their fifth studio album, the band knew the music called for a different approach.
“For this album, we wanted to have a more up-close and dry sound,” explains Chris. “I
worked on another record at Easy Eye and I just loved the room. Dan’s studio is cool because
it’s not old, but it feels that way when you walk into it. It reminds me of Sun Studios. It just has
that feeling of a small room with natural compression, and I think you hear that in the sounds on
the record.”
The decision to record in Nashville was no coincidence either, as this marks the first album
written with the entire band living in Music City.
“Oliver and I spent a lot of hours just in a room together writing songs,” says Chris. “That’s
really never happened before. All the music in the past was written long distance or over the
course of touring. It’s definitely the most collaborative album we’ve ever made.”
“It was kind of a luxury to be able to play together not just at a sound check,” adds Jano. “It
was a different starting point. Rather than people bringing in compositions that were relatively
finished, we were starting from the ground up as a group.”
The album opens with “Singing To Strangers,” which sets the tone for what’s to come both

musically and thematically.
“Singing to strangers is something we do every night,” explains Oliver, “and there’s some
satisfaction about singing to strangers. It’s this weird thing that I think we get addicted to. It’s
not that we need attention as much as we need connection. On a good night, when we’re singing
to strangers, everybody in the room bonds, and you have this amazing sense of connection.”
That desire for connection permeates the album, from “Touch Of Your Hand”, a song about
what Chris describes as “the most basic human need that there is” to “Two Places”, a track about
longing for home and family while on the road-to “Never And Always,” which examines the
fundamental emotional experiences of loneliness and belonging. “Snake Eyes” and “American
Heartache” both explore the dark side of longing, how the constant need for more in our
consumer culture can engender a perpetual dissatisfaction with never having enough, while on
“Without Desire,” they find the beauty and the magic that the titular emotion can bring into our
lives.
“Desire gets a bad rap sometimes,” explains Chris, “and people think it’s the root of all of
our problems. We wanted a song that said, ‘Maybe it’s not, maybe we need it.’ What would it be
like if we didn’t desire all those good things in life?”
In addition to Chris’s electric bass, which appears on two tracks, the album also showcases
Jano’s “shuitar,” a portmanteau for “shitty guitar.” The name belies the instrument’s complexity,
though. It’s actually an acoustic guitar that Jano has rigged up with noisemakers to function as
an easy-to-travel-with drum kit.
“I made one in The Wood Brothers because we needed a portable drum set we could take to
play on sessions and on the radio,” he explains, “but then we’ve been using it so much live, we
started writing for it and not wanting it to even sound like a drum set anymore. We wanted to let
it be its own thing.”
It turns up prominently on “Heartbreak Lullaby,” which also features guitar playing
from Oliver inspired by field recordings of African folk musicians. There’s more to Jano than
percussion, though, as he sits down at the piano on several tracks on ‘Paradise,’ including
album closer “River Of Sin.” “That song imagines how when people get baptized in a river, it’s
supposed to wash away their sins,” explains Chris. “But what happens to the water? Where do
the sins go? And what if you live downstream from all that baptizing?”
“A lot of the songs are dealing with these themes of longing and desire,” adds Oliver,
“but the album finishes with ‘River of Sin’ because it’s a positive and empowering message,
which is that you can’t really do anything unless you’re persistent. The narrator is humble and
understands that there are all these things larger than him and he’s just trying to understand them
and he’s determined to do better and be as good as he can. And he recognizes the only way to do
that is to keep trying.”
It’s a fitting, lovely, gospel-tinged ending to an album that traces both the darkness and the
beauty in our nature, the perpetual hope and the futility of it all. The quest for the carrot often
blinds us to the fact that we already possess it, and that’s the irony of desire.

John Lennon:
The Collected Artwork
“John started out as an artist first,” writes Yoko
Ono in the forward to John Lennon: The Collected
Artwork.
“Music got him later, after high school.”
Now available from those photography and artbook culture enthusiasts at Insight Editions, the 204page volume collects and curates—for the first time
ever—the sketches and lyrics of one of pop’s most
influential icons.
When Ono asked her husband why he didn’t
pursue the visual arts as ardently as music, Lennon
was reticent.
“I can’t,” he said. “I’m a Beatle.”
Which was another way of saying Lennon
didn’t think people would approach his whimsical
illustrations with the same minds and hearts they
so willingly opened to welcome his songs. Instead off
approaching his art objectively—regarding the myriad interpretive (and semi-autobiographical)
drawings as the products of an artist struggling to find his place in the world and comment upon
it—they’d see only doodles done by a Beatle. A rock star’s twee self-portraits and cutesy curios.
Nothing more, nothing less. Imagine that.
Editor Scott Gutterman (deputy director of the Neue Galerie in New York) knows there’s
more than meets the eye when it comes to Lennon’s lithographs. Gutterman doesn’t have to
twist our arm when it comes to arguing the merits of Lennon’s interpretive inking: This is the
walrus we’re talking about, after all, goo-goo-g’joob—the bard behind Revolver, Rubber Soul,
and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
Reservations aside, Lennon continued to take pen to paper even as Beatlemania infected
the globe. His creative impulse was nurtured by mother Julia and Aunt Mimi as a tot, and
he attended Liverpool Art Institute in his late teens (from 1957 to 1960). “Love Me Do” and
“Please, Please Me” may have been taking over the airwaves, but there’d be no curtailing
Lennon’s clever cartoons.
In 1969 John presented a series of drawings to Yoko—the Bag One Portfolio—as a wedding
gift. In the ‘70s he used his sketches to sublimate his passion for equality and peace, and he
studied Japanese sumi-e art while summering in Karuizawa with Yoko and their “Beautiful Boy”
son, Sean. The Lennon family dynamic was the focus of Lennon’s later work.
The Bag One array is now part of a permanent Lennon collection at the Museum of Modern
Art in New York City. Featuring over 200 original pieces, Collected Artwork profiles several of
the Bag One bits—and many other eye-popping artifacts.
Sure, many of Lennon’s drawings are of the minimalist sort we’ve seen in his squiggly
“granny glasses” self-portraits. Most consist of black ink on white parchment, and don’t look
as if they took much time (or thought). But deeper study reveals the musician’s surrealist
sensibilities, his feel for eroticism, and penchant for free-association.
There are some color pieces, too: The earliest works date back to 1952, when Lennon was
just a Liverpool lad taken by the medieval melees of the Saxons and Normans, and the exploits
of historical figures like Ivanhoe, Robin Hood and Sherlock Holmes. Chapter One serves up
a hefty helping of crayon drawings of cowboys and Indians on horseback, and pen sketches of
knights bashing one another with maces and swords.
Middle sections focus on self-reflection and personal observation. Encouraged by muse
Yoko, John released two books of poems and pictures in the mid-Sixties—In His Own Write and
A Spaniard in The Works—whose key images are republished here.
“They were his diary,” posits Ono on her late husband’s paintings.
Inspired by his wife’s heritage, Lennon immersed himself in Japanese culture in the ‘70s
even as he took up house-husbandry at the Dakota in New York. Collected Artwork documents
sketches of John and Yoko in kimonos, and of sundry “samurai sensei”—all with Japanese
captions (and concomitant English translations). One image (“Exile”) depicts a lone figure
wandering away from a pyramid, but it could be said to represent Lennon’s own self-imposed
retreat from the music business in the late ‘70s.
There are skylines, naked nymphs, giant kangaroos, and pencil renderings of “two virgins”
John and Yoko staging their famous bed-in for peace.
The book also showcases Lennon’s lyrics as art: The tome features no less than twenty
paragraph-verses in John’s own hand, including samples from “Imagine,” “Working Class
Hero,” “Grow Old With Me,” “Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds,” “Isolation,” and “Real Love.”

Like It Is: Yes at the Mesa Arts Center
Like It Is: Yes at the Mesa Arts Center is a bittersweet offering
from the Yes camp, what with the recent passing of longtime bassist
Chris Squire.
The group’s sole constant member, Squire cofounded the
English five-piece in 1968 and anchored the roster (not to mention
its sound) over the course of five different decades. He
w 2-CD / DVD live set
A sequel-of-sorts to Like It Is: Yes at the Bristol Hippodrome, the new
captures the progressive rock pioneers in concert August 12, 2014 in Mesa, Arizona as they storm
through two classic albums in their entireties.
Where Bristol documented the quintet’s May 11, 2014 romp through 1970’s The Yes Album
and 1977’s Going for the One, Mesa chronicles high-energy retellings of 1971 and 1972’s
consecutive Atlantic Records long-players Fragile and Close to The Edge.
Some cursory research reveals that performances of the two albums were separated on tour by
a pair of tunes from the band’s latest, Heaven & Earth (“Believe Again,” “The Game”), and that
the concerts were capped by sundry encores “Your Move / Seen All Good People,” “Owner of a
Lonely Heart,” and “Starship Trooper.” As with Bristol, these extras have been shorn from the live
releases so as to facilitate the containment of one live album on each of the two discs. The blu-ray
and DVD likewise strip the non-CTTE and Fragile material.
But back to the bassist.
“That evening in Mesa was a great one,” reports Squire in the liner notes. “The audience was
fantastic. We were in top form. The music sounded great and we could have played all night.”
Squire wasn’t kidding: Though the replacement of longtime Yes singer Jon Anderson with
Benoit David (2008-2011) and Jon Davison (2011-present) polarized the fan base, the ex-Sky Cries
Mary / Glass Hammer front man acquits himself marvelously on Like It Is, Par Deux, gracing the
twenty-minute pastoral epic “Close to the Edge” with the same cosmic hippy euphoria oozed by
Anderson on the original studio recording and rendering “Roundabout” and “South Side of the
Sky” in a similarly cherubic vocal range (and unerring annunciation).
Joining Squire from the “classic” mid-70s Yes lineup are guitarist Steve Howe and drummer
Alan White. Hearing Howe rip on his Gibson ES-175 is always a treat, and this release is no
exception. White still curates the cadences and summonses rhythmic thunder with seasoned flair,
meting out Squire’s melodic (but undulating) bass lines from behind his kit.
“And You And I” is trance-inducing with Davison on mic, bolstering the argument that it’s
always been about the message—not the messenger—where Yes music is concerned. “Siberian
Khatru” is a tempo-shifting workout whose zany passages provide ample opportunity to Howe and
Squire to stretch on their respective axes. The guitar intro by the former isn’t quite up to snuff (it
sounds a tad brittle), but Howe cranks it up for the hyperactive leitmotif as Squire’s propulsive bass
lends unstoppable momentum to Davison’s “bird of prey” verses.
Moving into Fragile territory, the band reimagines “Roundabout,” whereon Howe’s harmonics
and crunchy chords complement Squire’s sinewy bass line and Geoff Downes’ faux moog fills.
Replacing Oliver Wakeman (who seceded his father, Rick) on keyboards, Downes puts
his own spin on the Johannes Brahms-inspired “Cans and Brahms.” Elsewhere—as on “Long
Distance Runaround”—the ex-Buggle duplicates the elder Wakeman’s piano parts, organ fills, and
moog pastiches with aplomb.
Diehards will recall that Downes first allied with Howe and Squire in the first sans-Anderson
iteration of Yes, cutting the forward-thinking Drama in 1980. The “Video Killed the Radio Star”
synthesist then joined super-group Asia (“Heat of the Moment”) with Howe in ‘82 as Squire and
White carried on in “Yes West” with guitarist Trevor Rabin, who architected the group’s chartbusting comeback ’83 disc 90125 (“Owner of a Lonely Heart”). It’s been a treat having Howe and
Downes together again, in both Yes and Asia.
“We Have Heaven” is a head-spinning vocal round robin, whose outro footsteps carry into
the storm clouds (and snare riff) of the proto-metal “South Side of the Sky.” Squire’s background
vocals come to the fore here, particularly during the song’s nah-nah midsection. All members
contribute quirky bits to “Five Per Cent for Nothing,” whose guitar and keyboard slurs eventually
wind into “Long Distance Runaround.”
Given Squire’s departure, “The Fish (Schindleria Praematurus)” becomes this outing’s spiritual
(if not musical) epicenter. Falling midway through the second disc, the bass showcase sees Squire
march through his Fragile signature piece for the Nth time—but with no less the virtuosity and
enthusiasm of his early days (in pointed collars, capes, and calf-high boots). And anyone who’s
witnessed Yes in concert can attest to the bassist’s athleticism and spritely demeanor (despite his
size): Squire would always kick up a knee whilst plucking his Rickenbacker, or would thrust an
index finger skyward, only to spiral the digit back down into proper position on his fretboard.
We’ll miss that onstage charisma.
Fortunately, Chris’ bass (and vocal) brilliance has been preserved for the ages on twenty-odd
studio LPs and a dozen live titles, from 1973’s Yessongs and 1980’s Yesshows through 2011’s In the
Present: Yes Live From Lyons—and recent treasure trove box set Yes: Seven from Seventy-Two.
Like It Is: Yes Live at the Mesa Arts Center is a must-have in that it is the final Yes concert
pressed with Squire’s input. Whether more fantastic fossils and “lost” reels will be unearthed in
future times (as on Seven from Seventy-Two) is anyone’s guess.
Heck, it remains to be seen whether there’ll even be a Yes without Squire (though sources hint
that frequent Squire collaborator Billy Sherwood will step in for Chris on the upcoming summer
tour with Toto).

Asia: Axis—XXX Live in San Francisco MMXII
A
In
Insuffi
cient Asia in your musical orbit? Fear not: The English progressive-pop all-stars are back
w
with another superlative concert set.
Out now on Frontiers, Asia: Axis—XXX Live in San Francisco MMXII finds the “Heat of the
M
Moment” heroes tearing through tracks from their then-new studio effort XXX alongside hits from
th
through
their thirty-plus year lifespan (notwithstanding an extended hiatus during which surrogate
si
singer
John Payne fronted the group).
Recorded for compact disc and filmed for DVD November 12, 2012 live at the Regency
Ballroom in the city by the bay, Axis—XXX Live marks the fourth live release from the refurbished
Asia since its original members reconvened in 2007: Fantasia XXV: Live in Tokyo documented
said reunion, Spirit of the Night: The Phoenix Live in Cambridge captured their 2009 tour, and
Resonance: Omega Live in Switzerland preserved a gig from the band 2010-11 outing.
Caught up, or just plain confused?
No worries. We’re familiar enough with Asia to condense the band’s prolific history into a
paltry paragraph.
Comprised of virtuosic veterans from renowned progressive bands of the ‘70s, the “original”
Asia cut two albums for Geffen (Asia and Alpha) and notched a string of MTV hits before guitarist
Steve Howe (ex-Yes) ventured solo. Singer / bassist John Wetton (UK and King Crimson),
drummer Carl Palmer (ELP), and keyboardist Geoff Downes (Buggles, Yes) enlisted substitute
guitarists for a couple more LPs, but the singles had already dried up. Wetton and Palmer left it to
Downes to continue as he saw fit (with an alternate singer and players) until 2007, when the four
founding gents reassembled for a 25th anniversary tour.
That alliance was fruitful, twice as long (and productive) as the first go-round: The reawakened
Asia recorded four more full-lengths and embarked on several lucrative tours between Howe and
Downes’ outings in Yes.
Howe has since absconded anew, devoting his energies to Yes (and solo projects). He was
supplanted by young gun Sam Coulson on Asia’s 2014 album, Gravitas.
While Axis—XXX Live doesn’t necessarily render Asia’s earlier live releases obsolete, it does
stand as the band’s most comprehensive concert set to date (if solely by virtue of the fact that it is
the most recent, and covers more material than ever). It’s a solid mix of old and new that shuffles
XXX offerings with one or two songs apiece from Phoenix and Omega whilst slotting in tried-andtrue gems from the Geffen LPs. Indeed, Wetton and the lads perform just about every cut from
Asia’s eponymous 1982 debut.
Following a two-minute orchestral intro (that sounds like it quotes Beethoven’s “Pathetique
Sonata”), the guys launch into “Only Time Will Tell,” with Downes conjuring the apocryphal
synth riff that inspired ‘80s arena bands like Europe (“The Final Countdown”). Wetton recounts
a fictitious fight for king and country on “Wildest Dreams,” his bass (probably a Zon) pulsating
beneath Howe’s fleet-fingered guitar runs.
XXX single “Face on the Bridge” benefits from Downes’ elegant piano and synth strings.
Throwback “Time Again” commences with Howe’s menacing volume swells before locking in
with Palmer’s strident beat. The band gets simpatico on “Tomorrow the World,” dispatching an
optimistic, chin-up missive courtesy Downes’ medieval-sounding brass samples.
Wetton introduces “Heat of the Moment” B-side “Ride Easy” as a tune he wrote with Howe
before the band proper even started. Downes dominates again, his harpsichord passages bounding
alongside the guitarist’s scorching scales.
Howe then treats the Frisco audience to two wonderful solo acoustic pieces. “Pyramidology” is
a crisp, classically-inspired bit with syncopated runs that sees Steve mastering melody and rhythm
parts simultaneously. The Natural Timbre extract is also an appropriate bit for this outing, given
that San Francisco’s Transamerica Pyramid graces the album sleeve (in emerald green) with the
band’s Roger Dean-designed dragon mascot. The second guitar excursion, “Golden Mean” (from
2008’s Motif), is a dynamic, Chet Atkins-influenced number from the same songbook as Howe
signature pieces “Clap” and “Cactus Boogie.”
Howe then capitulates to Wetton and Downes, who render “I Know How You Feel” as a
keys-and-vocal-only ballad and “Don’t Cry” as an upbeat clap-along. Howe and Palmer return
for the climax on “The Smile Has Left Your Eyes.” Wetton announces that the band will take a
twenty-minute break—but the collective breather is inconsequential here, the CD spinning past the
intermission.
Howe unleashes acoustic arpeggios and jagged riffs on “Cutting It Fine,” but it’s Downes who
prevails on “Holy War”—at least until Palmer’s lengthy drum solo.A consummate percussionist,
Palmer employs every shell and cymbal in his arsenal in a dazzling display of robust rhythm.
Where most drum solos occasion a potty break and beer-run for restless fans, Palmer’s foray is of
the Neil Peart variety in that it’s worth sticking around to watch. That said, we’d have preferred it
were assigned its own track instead of a piggy-back position at the end of “Holy War” (making for a
fourteen-minute track).
Uplifting Phoenix anthem “Extraordinary Life” segues into the cowbell-powered “Here Comes
the Feeling” and churchy, lute-flavored mini-epic “Open Your Eyes.” Primed for an energetic finale,
Regency revelers thrill to the instrumental acrobatics on “Sole Survivor.”
Commencing with a cursory pick-slide from Howe, the obligatory-but-euphoric “Heat of the
Moment” finds Wetton nailing some of the tune’s familiar falsetto notes—and leading a call-andresponse game of tag with the audience at the halfway mark.
Catch a pearl and ride the dragon’s wing once more.

Life Loves You:
Seven Spiritual Experiments to
Heal Your Life
By Louise Hay and Robert Holden, Ph.D.
“Knowing that life loves you is the secret to loving yourself
and to living a life you love.” —Louise Hay
Louise Hay has been an inspiration to millions since her
best-selling book You Can Heal Your Life was published,
and in this new book—a joint project between Louise and
Robert Holden, best-selling author of Shift Happens! and
Loveability—readers will delve into the power of one of
Louise’s most loved affirmations: Life Loves You.
Together, Louise and Robert look at what “Life loves
YOU” really means—that life doesn’t happen to you;
it happens for you. Life is on your side. And when you understand and live in line with this
philosophy of basic trust, you open yourself up to countless opportunities to experience greater
happiness, creativity, prosperity, and love.
But the authors don’t expect readers to take their word for it. In fact, they outline seven
practical and straightforward experiments that will help readers experience the loving universe
for themselves.
These experiments include:
Look in the Mirror – learning about Mirror Principle and self-love
Affirm Your Life – creating a Personal Manifesto of affirmations for your life
Follow Your Joy – trusting your inner wisdom and creating an Affirmation Board
Forgive the Past – healing your future, releasing the past, and living in the present.
Practice Gratitude Now – appreciating the good in your life “Gratitude always takes you in the
direction of love.”
Live with Prosperity – living with an abundance mindset
Paint the Future – visualizing and creating the life you want
As readers go through the book, they will see more and more clearly that they are supported
in all they do. They will understand that they live in a friendly universe. And they will begin to
see life in a new way so they can heal themselves and the world around them.

More ‘Science Of Mind’….We Are Here To Create!
Remember when we were in the 2ND grade and were asked what we wanted to be when we grew up? In most cases, the enthusiasm was
electrifying! There is no doubt that children use their imaginations to see all kinds of wonderful possibilities.
Awhile back, this question was posed to a group of high school students. The response was very different. In fact, there was little response.
Students shrugged their shoulders, a few muttered answers but the enthusiasm was gone. Where did it go???
Think about 2nd grade again. We knew back then, much more about “can” than “can’t”. Sadly, the opposite occurred on the high school level.
When did we begin to buy into a belief system of ‘impossibility thinking.’?
People often come to science of mind after years of disappointment about one thing or another. We continue to base our current and future
lives on those disappointments. So….of course we create more. After all, we are creative minds….
Ernest Holmes said, “Never limit your view of life by any past experience.”
We know—in theory—to leave our pasts in the past. Scripture frequently uses the term: “And so it came to pass…..” Scripture never said,
“Ok, this is how it is now folks and how it will remain, cuz you let it come to pass once.” J
If we desire to step beyond our current boundaries (which we created for ourselves, I might add), we have to start using our imaginations
again. We have to start thinking those things, as we did in the 2nd grade, which inspire excitement and enthusiasm.
So where do we start? I’ll admit; that’s a tough one sometimes. as a healing facilitator, I am often in the position to say these things to a
client, but then what do we do when faced with, “you don’t understand what’s happened in my life that keeps me from moving forward.” You’re
right. I don’t. But I do know that it’s never too late, nor is anything so horrific that we can’t start fresh right now by changing our thinking. The
reason I know this is because we survived it. We’re still here. So obviously, if it didn’t kill us, it was meant to make us stronger. Changing our
thinking is what makes us stronger. This is how we evolve.
If we started a discussion with the question, “exactly what do we believe about ourselves?”, what might our answers be?
I would bet—under most circumstances—if people were asked that, they unfortunately, would probably think of all the negative things they
believe about themselves. At the very least…..they would respond with something like, “oh, I’m nothing special….”
We might then list all the reasons why we’re stuck where we are: in a job we dislike, or the reason we can’t return to school, or to seek a better
job…..or we might have excuses about why we don’t take that creative course that we yearn for.
We might have all kinds of reasons why we don’t lose weight or exercise or start that yoga class. We might very well find ourselves drowning in
“impossibility thinking”.
Ahhhhh……but then we have that beautiful ‘grace of god’ moment, when we allow ourselves to become still. If we were to quiet our
minds long enough instead of allowing the list of “impossibility thoughts”….and changed our thinking, we could begin to imagine the unlimited
possibilities for our lives.
Science of mind teaches that there is but one life, and that life is the life of god and that is
our life. If we really believe that statement, our entire lives can open up.
So what’s god? As metaphysicians (that being us), we believe in a kind, generous, and
loving god that only wants the best for us. Every one of our lives has meaning and purpose.
Every one of us is ‘something special.’
When we get in touch with that meaning and purpose—that path that we came here to
walk—the entire universe comes to our aid. All we have to do is begin to use our imagination to
help create a life beyond the boundaries we’ve currently set.
In spite of the messages of mainstream media, we aren’t victims. We have choices. within
each one of us, there is a world of possibilities, creative imagination, a world that whispers to us
daily that we can be whatever we commit ourselves to being.
This is the most important thing to remember: everything is vibration. The universe in all
of its wisdom, responds to us at the rate of our own vibration. That is our thoughts. Because the
law of attraction is impersonal, it doesn’t differentiate between positive thinking and negative
thinking. The law simply knows to respond to our thoughts and feelings.
So where is our focus? What possibilities do we see for ourselves?
You’ve probably seen this meme a thousand times on Facebook: Einstein said, “Imagination is
greater than knowledge.” Our goal is to use our imaginations and to follow the positive leadings
of life.
It is important to recognize that the positive is where the potential lies; the positive is always
where we find god’s inspiration and guidance.
Helen Keller said, “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.”

“The Storm” were both epic in proportion—guitar-laden mini-masterpieces whereon brass
section and backup vocalists decorated the thunderous beats with melody, harmony, and plain old
grit.
Opener Doyle Bramhall II returned to the stage with Sharon Jones to share the load on Etta
James oldie “Tell Mama,” which became a three-pronged guitar adventure as a result. Tedeschi
and Trucks then signed off with a mash-up of Sly & The Family Stone late ‘60s hits “Sing a
Simple Song” and “I Want to Take You Higher.”
Thing is, TTB had already taken us higher; the all-star encore was just icing on the cornbread
muffin.
Bramhall (a guitar sensation who’s produced for Eric Clapton and performed with Roger
Waters) delighted at dusk with a half-hour of blues rock that harkened to Slowhand’s days in
Cream. Heck, the razor-stubbled Bramhall even had poofy hair like young Clapton did in his
psychedelic Disraeli Gears phase.
But Bramhall—whose dad (like Derek’s) was a famous drummer (for Lightning Hopkins)—
is more than just a haircut and paisley neckerchief. Playing a Fender Strat (and an exotic
turquoise Eastwood guitar), he had fret board acumen needed to interpret the greats whilst
putting his own stamp on the music—and ample fuzz tone and wah-wah to make his notes sizzle.
His three-piece band was a rhythmic hit squad, towing the line on an impressive run through the
posthumously-issued Hendrix song “Angel.”
Brooklyn R&B / boogie ensemble The Dap Kings then took over at 7:30pm, serving up fifty
minutes of super-soul funk drawn mostly from their sixth release, Give the People What they
Want.
Fronted by sparkplug Sharon Jones and—like TTB—boasting a rock band, horn section,
and backup singers), the dynamic unit wowed on “If You Call,” “Stranger to My Happiness,” and
“Long Time, Wrong Time.”
Jones, 59, dazzled with her strong voice and can’t-look-away stage presence, shaking and
shimmying in her silver sparkle Hullabaloo-style dress during “People Don’t Get What They
Deserve” and a smoldering march through 1966 Marvin Gaye classic “Heard It Through the
Grapevine.” The band’s cover of Johnny Otis classic (via Gladys Knight & The Pips) “In Every
Beat of My Heart” likewise captivated the Nautica contingent. Jones said the smoky “When I
Come Home” got a thumbs-up from Prince.
“He said it’s the funkiest thing he’s heard in the last twenty-five years,” Jones beamed.
Sharon also reported she’d recently overcome pancreatic cancer, and dedicated “Get Up and Get
Out” to the successful purging of her illness. She said became determined to regain her health
after an epiphany standing before a hospital mirror.
As if to demonstrate her resolve, Jones gave the audience a lesson in Sixties-style dancing,
working her way through a boogaloo, The Jerk, Ride the Pony, the Funky Chicken, and the
“swim.” Then she shuffled like James Brown, and did a dead-on vocal impression of Tina
Turner. Other Dap King highlights included “Keep On Looking” (from 2007’s 100 Days, 100
Nights) and “She Ain’t a Child No More” (from 2010’s I Learned the Hard Way).
Accompanying Jones and the fellas were Bronx soul babes Saundra Williams and Starr
Duncan Lowe, better known as singing duo Saun & Starr. The ladies impressed with a couple
numbers from their new disc Look Closer before guitarist Binky Griptite introduced Ms. Jones to
the stage.
The pair first started working with Jones years ago in a wedding band. The women
eventually went their separate ways—only to reconvene in-studio for the King’s third album.
Both Saun and Starr astounded with their operatic descants, sisterly demeanor, and goodtime
vibes before retreating to a rostrum adjacent conga percussionist Fernando Velez.
The Dap Kings also count bassist Gabriel “Bosco Mann” Roth, trumpeter Dave Guy, and
saxophonists Cochemea Gastelum (baritone) and Neal Sugarman (tenor) as members. Guitarist
Joe Crispiano acted as the band’s musical director, cueing the stops and starts whenever Jones
was ready to roll.

If You Can Dream It,
I Can Build It.
Well it’s now the end of July which has always meant to me that the summer is almost over. It’s hard to believe because I don’t quite
remember when it started. At least the weather has been a little dryer the past week. As I’m writing this, I look out my window and see my “Rose
of Sharon” bush is in full bloom and it is absolutely gorgeous! The day lilies are doing exceptionally well this year too.
This time of year is also when I celebrate my birth rite and this year I have reached the big one. You know, the one where you thought you would
have enough things accomplished in your life so that you could start thinking about planning your retirement years and how you were going to
spend all your free time. What a crock of sh%*#@$t that is. Everybody I talk too say’s that they are busier now that they are retired than when
they were working every day. Oh Well, I guess “they” were wrong! I guess that I should just be happy that I have my health , my family , and
most of my mind still left to be able to function (as well as can be expected from a man of my age) everyday and I’m still doing it with a smile on
my face.
So, I have been gearing up to take a big trip out to Denver in November (that’s
got a catchy rhyme to it )I’m going to a trade show called Champs which is the
nation’s largest trade show for tobacco related products and accessories for the head
shop industry. I’m going to unveil my newest “Smoking Hot Guitar” venture to the
public. No better place to do it than where it is legal and abounding with joy in the
wonderful state of Colorado. I’m not promoting the use of illegal marijuana, I’m just
promoting my guitar pipes that could be used for such activity if one chose to do so.
Although there is a sticker that is on the back of the guitar that clearly expresses that it
is to be used for tobacco only! I’m just saying......
I’m having so much fun building them and they are such a beautiful work of art
that it is hard not to get excited about selling them. I have so many new designs to go
along with the whole concept of musical smoking accessories. I now have little tiny
amplifiers that are great to stash your guitar picks into (and other things, like rings or
coins, etc.) Electric guitars will be coming soon as well as banjos and basses, just to
name a few.
It’s time to increase my visibility with the social media network but unfortunately
I think I might be too old to figure out how that it works. It seems there is a lot of time
that needs to be spent on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc., etc. I don’t know all of
the ins and outs of that “posting stuff” and have been having a hard time finding the
time to do it. If there is anyone out there that is exceptionally good at working the
social media network and would like to give me a few pointers or some direction in
where to go or how to increase my visibility and “brand” my new product I would be
greatly appreciative and can be reached at 440-474-2141 or through my website www.
smokinghotguitars.com. There could
be some employment opportunity that goes along with the phone call, so please give a call if you’re interested.
As far as the repair business is going... I am as busy as I ever have been. The usual 3-4 setups every week and a couple of major repairs
slipped in there too. Currently I have three neck sets and two full refrets, a huge side crack, and a couple of pickup installments. For the most part
things are as normal as they can be. I have been trying to spend more time on a couple of the building projects in between all of my other projects.
They are slowly taking shape and with a little luck I will be doing a harp guitar show in October. I have been spending most of my time trying
to finish up all of the details in my new SHG shop. I just finished putting an underground electric service to the building and setting up my new
office. That gave me a lot of room in my Liam Guitar shop which I installed two new work benches into. It seems as though every step forward
is not just one step. The one step forward usually adds a whole dance sequence with it to be able to make it work. Now that I have the benches, I
need to put drawers and shelves and organize this and move that and throw out this so that I can fit this new machine over there and then I can put
this there instead, blah,blah,blah....do you know what I mean? I only have to paint the floor and build a new CNC machine and add a few more
lights and I think I’ll be almost finished, at least until some other idea comes to mind.
That reminds me I have to buy a new switch for my band saw that is going to cost a couple hundred bucks. It makes me wonder why I had to
buy that fancy expensive Italian band saw in the first place. I have had great service from it for over ten years, but $200.00 for a switch is a little
crazy don’t you think? It doesn’t matter because I have to get it up and running a.s.a.p.. I use my band saw and sanders everyday and could not
do much of anything without them. It’s kind of like a tape measure for a carpenter, just more expensive. Oh, I almost forgot about the pump that I
blew up in my power washer too. I guess it’s just been one of those kind of weeks. The trick is to just shake it off like water on a duck’s back and
move forward to the next level and don’t look back any further than to fix your broken machinery as quickly as you can! That’s my story and I’m
sticking to it! So till next time …Be safe and Stay in Tune. Also stay Happy you will live longer and have more Fun, Guaranteed!

Ant Man
Marvel PG13 117 Min.
Does it seem that all these superhero
films, (and especially my redundant reviews),
seem to blur together?
If it gets tedious I do apologize but in my
own defense it’s pretty tough to come up with
different points for essentially the same movie.
I often speak of the never ending war between
the two comic empires, DC and Marvel, and
my opinion is that while Marvel and their
leader Stan Lee are bright and resourceful they
are also as imitative as the Iotians from the
Star Trek episode A Piece of the Action.
Even Marvels biggest devotees can’t deny
the fact that whenever a popular DC comic
hits the stands a very similar one is sure to follow from Lee and company. No rip off I can
think of is more blatant than Ant Man who followed DC’s The Atom in a matter of months
back in the sixties.
At any rate The Atom and especially his
imitation Ant Man were never A list superheroes even in the old days. One of the reasons
being is that the superpower is pretty much
limited to shrinking to a very tiny size. Ant
Man has one slightly interesting twist to his
abilities; even though he can’t fly he can
communicate with actual ants and hitch a ride
when necessary on the back of a carpenter ant.
I’m not sure, and it wasn’t covered in the film,
if he actually spends anytime crawling around
in people’s kitchens or spoiling picnics.
For those Marvel purists out there this
appears to be a relaunch of the Ant Man who
originally appeared in the early sixties.
Back then a scientist named Hank Pym
(Michael Douglas) figured out something that
would allow people to shrink to molecular size
and beyond and used that technology to save
the world or do good deeds or something like
that. It seems he hit the skids when his wife
died on one of these little escapades and the
secret fell into the hands of unscrupulous business people and evil military guys. Yes they
are to blame again! That’s kind of standard issue for a lot of monster and or super guy films
since the 19 sixties.
It turns out the good doctor has been
working in the shadows waiting for the proper
subject to wear the magic shrinking suit and
once again save the world. That honor falls
to a down-on-his-luck cat burglar Scott Lang
(Paul Rudd).
A little background you may or may not
want to read involves some of those bad guys
and swindlers about to sell that technology to
Marvel Comics’ fictitious evil organization
called Hydra.
We aren’t exactly sure why they are
spending the big money on this technology but
you can pretty much bet it’s not to promote
world peace. Scott now spends the rest of the
movie flying around shrinking expanding,
beating up bad guys and blowing up a massive
evil computer with his army of ants. Luckily
the bad guys have never considered a can of
Raid. He’ll also test the waters of a lukewarm
love interest with the boss’s daughter but that
goes almost nowhere.
The rest of it is made up of long but
adequately engaging action scenes until, of
course, the good guys are victorious.
www.northcoastvoice.com • (440) 415-0999
Then the standard Marvel Comics run the
credits show the one extra scene setting up a
sequel on its way then cut and wrap.
I’ve heard Michael Douglas is already said
he’d consider doing another round so there
you have it folks. Hopefully they will make
enough money from this one to be able to purchase a little more interesting plot for the next
time. This isn’t a bad movie and Paul Rudd is
a pretty charismatic little guy.
BMr. Holmes
BBC PG 105 min
The Legend of Sherlock Holmes is such
a great part of the fabric of English literature
that it has almost created a life of its own.
One of the basic tenets revolves around the
idea that though the books had been accepted
July 29 - August 12, 2015
and purchased as fictional entertainment they were actual accounts of Sherlock Holmes cases
glorified as they may be by Dr Watson, as actual case transcripts. At least that’s a part of the
idea behind the
latest BBC sequel,
as it were, MR
HOLMES.
I can imagine
one would not need
to be an aficionado
to appreciate the
random mysteries
and even the action
in many films and
stories but here, as
we examine the last
months or possibly
days of his life it’s
hard to imagine
being drawn in
without a great deal of prior interest. Unlike the Robert Downey Jr Sherlock Holmes the Ian
McKellen version exhibits no fisticuffs, no shirtless cavorting, no action scenes, and only the
most bittersweet hint of romance.
Remember this is a BBC production and not prone to the over the top production, explosions battles etc. found in American films.
In this version the sleuth has long since retired and his faithful friend Dr Watson many years in
his grave. Now well into his nineties and facing early signs of Alzheimer’s Mr. Holmes is trying
very hard to tie up a couple of loose ends; unfinished business that have haunted him ever since
his self-imposed exile to his country home.
It’s in this idyllic setting he will spend his days surrounded by a sullen housekeeper (Laura
Linney), her precocious son Roger (Milo Parker), his bees and his failing memories.
Referenced in flashbacks and dream sequences two of those cases continue to eat at his
mind. In Japan, a young man is searching for his father who left the family on a trip to England
and never returned but only sent a copy of one of Watson’s memoirs A Study in Scarlet. With
the promise of secret Japanese herbs that can sharpen the mind Holmes is persuaded to visit the
young man and possibly find his errant father.
The other involves a woman Holmes could actually care for embroiled in a romantic and
possibly murderous intrigued. I won’t tell you how either one works out (or if they even do)
because if you invest your time in this relatively slow film those answers are just about your
only pay off.
Oddly enough one of the solutions reminded me of STAR TREK’s Kobayashi Maru but I’d
be shocked if it weren’t just a coincidence. (That’s your only hint by the way.)
There’s also the matter of the housekeeper
and Roger, the friction between them since his father was killed in the war has to be resolved.
I found myself hoping that Ian McKellen is just a damn good actor and not nearly as feeble
as he plays a character almost 20 years his senior.
At the end of the day, though, I really enjoyed this film and I think you will too if you have
absolutely no expectations of action or thrills.

The 2015 version of the Geneva-on-the-Lake “Summer Fun Heritage Trail” has been very
well received. It’s fun seeing the visitors walking along the strip and reading the 22 heritage
sites in the village.
For 2016 and 2017, new locations will be added as pictures, information and artifacts
continue to be received for the upcoming locations.
Now is your chance to nominate any Geneva-on-the-Lake locations YOU feel has
contributed to the resort’s history.
Email suggestions to [email protected] and the GOTL Visitors Bureau will
see what kind of historical or social history can be found on the location. It would be helpful if
you let us know what impact you feel it had on the resort’s development, and if you have any
pictures.
This year’s sites can be viewed at www.summerfunheritagetrail.com
HOUSE OF BLUES® CONCERT ANNOUNCEMENTS
Papadosio
November 25 – House of Blues
General Admission Tickets: $18 On Sale Now
Born in the burgeoning, artistic city of Athens, OH, the quintet now calls another creative
community, Asheville, NC its home. Little time is spent nestled up in the Blue Ridge Mountains,
though, as Papadosio spends much of the year on the road, crisscrossing the United States
ceaselessly. In addition to headlining shows in every region of the country, their high-energy,
technologically perplexing, and utterly engaging stage show has made the five-piece a staple
on the festival circuit, with scene-stealing sets at All Good, Wakarusa, Sonic Bloom, Electric
Forest, Envision Festival, Oregon Country Fair, and more.
The culmination of all that writing on the road is T.E.T.I.O.S. The follow-up to 2009’s critically
acclaimed Observations finally arrived in the fall of 2012. To End the Illusion of Separation is
a sprawling double album, signaling not only an evolution of the band’s sound, but a paradigm
shift on a far greater scale. The album is a call for people of all stripes to reject artificial
barriers of wealth, class, and creed and come together under the flag of humanity. Themes of
conservation, tolerance, and mind-expansion delicately weave their way around tribal rhythms,
psychedelic excursions, and soaring melodies. The
fusion of the earthly, the organic, with technological
innovations and progressive sonic structure plants
Papadosio’s roots firmly in the past and present with an
eye turned towards the horizon.

VERTIGOISMATIC!
A couple years ago I had a bad bout of
the ‘Bohemian Thogwart Dung Beatle’s Dung
Flea’s Dust Disease’ on my right leg, at least
that’s what I called it; the Doctors never did
figure out what it was and couldn’t give it a
name! So this of course put me into Science
Fiction mode and I could then describe it as
like a million microscopic Thogwart Dung
Beatle Dung Fleas trying to eat the skin off my
leg! It was a friggen nightmare right out of
the Twilight Zone!
Finally, after 19,000 pills of various
shapes and colors, IV’s, QV’s, AV’s, WV’s,
EV’s and probably some BV’s, gave up 400
gallons of blood for testing, and had at least
250,000 X-rays, the doctor I’m seeing now
called in a team from the Antarctic to take a
core sample from my leg, which told him at
least what it wasn’t! Well… I’m not actually
seeing him… right now, that would mean I
was crazy; I’m seeing my computer screen as
I’m typing and I’m not kidding either!
Anyways, after analyzing the chunk of
meat he took out of my leg he still didn’t
know what it was, just some sort of skin
bacteria that got infected, something he’s
never encountered before… huh, imagine that!
At least then he was able to give me some
magic ointment, which I cannot pronounce
the name of, so I just simply call it the; ‘Anti
Bohemian Thogwart Dung Beatle’s Dung
Flea’s Dung Dust Ointment’ and it got rid of
the ‘Thogwart Dung Beetle’s Dung Flea’s
Dung Dust’ that was infecting my leg and
that’s all I care about!
(Answers on Page 28)
Of course I was in SciFi mode when
I came up with the name for this hideous
affliction and there’s no truth to the rumor that
I’m always in SciFi mode, I check into reality
from time to time just to make sure I haven’t
turned n-n-n-n-n-normal and so far I have
not! N-n-n-n-n-normal people get n-n-n-nn-normal illnesses and have pieces and parts
removed or radiated to get rid of them! I think
I’m better of right here in my own little world,
where once in a while I run into some weird
or unknown SciFi affliction and get to name it
myself!
Once I give the weird or unknown SciFi
affliction a name, it seems then a friggen
cure of some sort comes about like out of a
cosmic chicken soup and all is good! With
that thought in mind, I’m going to name my
newest weird and unknown SciFi affliction,
which started a couple months ago. It’s some
sort of ‘Falling Down Disease’ where I feel
like I’m going to fall down… all the time…
but I don’t, as of yet anyways!
Again the doctor doesn’t know what it
is and all the conventional n-n-n-n-n-normal
things aren’t working, and I’m walking around
like a drunken sailor, so I’m giving it a friggen
name so it will go away, I’m going to call it…
umm… ‘Vertigignasticdown Syndrone’, yeah
I like that one, and anyone afflicted would be
‘Vertigoismatic’!
There… now go the hell away, and leave
me upright… please and thank you!
