A message and an invitation from the one and only Dr. Groovy:

This week: I am back from Tanzania and Kenya and will have stories of Nairobi, Shirati, and the clinic there and my climb up Kilimanjaro (I made it!) and a little bit of London thrown in for my friend Nick. I may even mention the peaceful days at my parents’ farm in Virginia (beautiful)

Sit back, tray tables in the upright and locked position and join me on the quest for understanding…

Mike Watt Interviews Charles Bukowski’s Widow

Plus, the DIY “Blues for Bukowski” music video

Being a friend as well as a huge long-time fan of Mike Watt and his various musical adventures, I thought I’d share a couple of cool Mike Watt offerings:

Hey Folks,

You can hear me work the thudstick w/ Steve Hodges on drums for violinist Chris Murphy’s “Blues for Bukowski” and yep, that’s a fuzz bass solo I did in the middle of it (Chris’ idea!)

Plus, the Linda Bukowski interview. A must read for any true fan of Charles Bukowski:

(The image below) will bring you to a spiel I did last year w/ mister Bukowski’s wife Linda here in my (San) Pedro town.

The 8th Annual Harmony Festival Saturday Night…

TECHNO-TRIBAL COMMUNITY DANCE

SATURDAY – JUNE 9th 2007
Grace Pavilion – 8:00PM – 2:00AM – All Ages

Once a year there comes a sensorium extravaganza like no other… The fabulous Techno-Tribal Dance takes flight in a universe of 21st Century sound and light in the vast cathedral of Grace Pavilion. A sea of costumed, dancing people celebrate the moment to the music of top electronica artists, their eyes filled with jewels by a full spectrum laser array and vast airy beings that hang in space, painted with light and sailing in the sound field. Fire spinners dazzle the eye as daring aerialists soar through the dark reaches above the pulsing crowd, whose bones are vibrating with massive bass beats. Then fantasy forms and dream beings on stilts cut a path through the happy dancers, bringing with them an element of – what? Ritual? Magic? Birth of something so novel we cannot name it, but we know we want it and it’s here!

  • RABBIT IN THE MOON – SHPONGLE (DJ SET)
  • STANTON WARRIORS (FEAT: DOMINIC B.)

Kate Stewart Jazz Music Review

Some information from a friend of the community, Jazz singer Kate Stewart.

Dear Friends & Associates:

I’m pleased to report that Jazz Review has just done a write-up on my CD, “They All Come Back”. I’ve copied and pasted it below, but if you would like to see the original, you can click here:

Thanks for all you support in the past – please know how much it is appreciated!

Best,

Kate

P.S. See my review in the Italian Magazine, Genovatune. And, as always, you can hear some music samples at MySpace

Featured Artist:

  • K8 Stewart Experience

CD Title:

  • They All Come Back

Style:

  • Jazz Vocals

Musicians:

  • Kate Stewart (Vocals)
  • Jamieson Trotter (Piano)
  • Sherman Ferguson (Drums)
  • Dan Lutz (Bass)
  • John Baxter (Guitar)

Review in JazzReview.com magazine:

I honestly never thought that I would ever hear a CD (in this case an EP-CD) with both ???Autumn Leaves??? and Leonard Cohen???s ???I???m Your Man??? as tracks, but Kate Stewart proved me wrong.

New singers and their initial efforts are always a challenge to review. It???s like watching a young pitcher (I apologize in advance for the sports analogy) making their major league debut. You can determine whether the pitcher has the equipment (arm) to be able to succeed in the big leagues, but it’s hard to predict whether the pitcher will evolve into a real big league pitcher. But without the arm, it will not happen. (I already apologized for the sports analogy ??? right?)

Well based on this EP-CD, I can definitely conclude that Kate Stewart has the equipment (in this case voice) to become an excellent jazz singer. But natural ability alone does not guarantee that someone will evolve into being a singer ??? in another genre Linda Ronstadt comes to mind.

I would bet though based on this effort that Kate will evolve into a fine jazz vocalist. She has been a lifetime devotee of jazz and began singing in clubs out East when she was 16, so her style is more polished than on most maiden efforts. She definitely shows more than glimmers of the singer she might well end up being.

I tried, I mean really tried, to use another word, but alas for want of that other word her voice can best be described as sultry ??? which one would not expect based on the picture of the perky, svelte blonde beaming at us on the back of the CD.

Mostly she knows how to sing. I especially liked he straight ahead interpretation of Johnny Mercer???s ???Too Marvelous for Words.??? Her interpretation of the Leonard Cohen classic was also quite good. She has an excellent combo backing her, and the arrangements allowed their abilities to be demonstrated without taking away from Kate???s own efforts.

All in all Kate Stewart is definitely worth a listen ??? it will be interesting to see how her career and style evolves.

Tracks: How Long Has This Been Going On?, I’m Your Man, They All Come Back, Autumn Leaves, Too Marvelous for Words
