zzgl. 3,99 € Versand

One of country music´s rising stars releases his debut album. Dawson co-wrote all 12 of the album´s songs, including the title track. The up-and-coming singer-songwriter collaborated with top songwriters Luke Laird, Josh Kerr, Barry Dean, Seth Ennis and more on the project. An atypical country artist, Devin Dawson´s approach to music is not different on purpose, it´s different with purpose. He grew up just outside the gates of Folsom Prison, drawing inspiration from Johnny Cash, Alan Jackson, Marvin Gaye and Creedence Clearwater Revival. Pulling from these influences, he began to write in a style that is definitively country. Dawson´s lyrics full of romance and vulnerability, delivered with a distinctive saw-toothed vocal, draw you in from the first verse and keep you hooked until the very last chord.

(2004/Decca) 14 tracks 52:29 It´s my pleasure to write my thank you note for this project which must begin with the president of Decca, Costa Pilavachi... it´s marvellous to have your name and Decca´s behind me with such passionate force. This project has given me the opportunity to work with so many talented individuals. In my opinion everyone involved is a key player. Brian Berg, Mark Cavell, Nick Battle and Simon Franglen are a stellar team who presented this project to me with I great vision and delivered a finished product that, I believe, holds the key to another door, leading to a whole new level in my career. I love the simplicity of the sound, the inspired arrangements and the choice of material. As soon as the songs got into the hands of Simon Franglen, I knew that we were on to something special. Not only is he an amazing producer and innovative arranger, but his attention to detail and dedication to the project made this CD what it is and took me to that new level. Simon, it was an honour to work with you and thanks for bringing in the 20-year-old Armagnac for the winding-down toast at the end of some very long but satisfying days. Nick... you picked covers that I would never have thought to touch, but we pulled it off with a fresh and exciting approach and I´m glad I listened. The originals slide in like standards, which is a hard task to accomplish. It´s been a long time since I have ´´felt the thread´´! It´s this sonic thread that weaves the songs together and makes the collection an experience rather than a presentation. All of that golden thread could get shoved in a drawer but for Decca pulling out all stops in the marketing department. Carol Wright, Laura and Jamila are the magnets who draw the attention and grab the world by the ear while Mitch Jenkins catches the eye with his impressive still and video photography. A special thanks to my publicist and friend Clare Hudson for all of her work this past year. I can never thank enough the Universal team in Los Angeles, headed by Bob Mercer with Pat Lawrence, Sujata, and Rhonda. It was a thrill to work with the musicians... they are the crème de la crème, which is very apparent from their performance on this project. They gave me all I needed in order to give my all, and raised the bar some more. It felt like a flashback to the old days; the downtime and just hanging out were an important part of the whole experience. Luckily for me this was a session without pressure. We had the luxury of time, and a good time was had by all. Martin Ditcham on drums and percussion, Nick Beggs on bass, Dave Keary on guitar and Dave Hartley on keyboards gave their ´´tasty´´ best... right down to the last note, the final foot off the pedal. I love the fact that each track breathes and so does the ´´in-between´´, so you have time to soak up the silence and reflect on what you just heard. Andy Caine and Linda Taylor really melted right in with amazing background vocals. And all of this would have been a rehearsal if the engineer hadn´t shown up, so a big thank you to Jon Bailey at the helm with Nick at his side. Everyone at Air Studios... the host with the most... already looking forward to the next project. Last but not least, I´d like to thank my manager, Alan Margulies, for his hard work, positive attitude and presence during the entire session. I´m truly proud of this project and I hope it takes you on a melodic spree that leaves a smile on your face, a song in your heart and has you coming back for more. With sincere appreciation to all, Engelbert

Vinyl-Wiederveröffentlichung vom ersten Album des legendären Rockproduzenten und –musikers aus Memphis. Meisterwerk mit Southern Boogie, Blues, Soul und Country Music. Ursprünglich 1972 auf ATLANTIC veröffentlicht, aufgenommen mit den Dixie Flyers als Begleitband. Mit Eric Clapton an der Gitarre – auf dem Cover wurde er nicht erwähnt. Sorgfältig neu gemastert, Reproduktion des Original-Covers. James Luther ’Jim’ Dickinson spielte Klavier auf dem Rolling Stones-Titel Wild Horses . Seine Söhne, Luther und Cody Dickinson, sind Gründungsmitglieder der North Mississippi Allstars . James Luther ’Jim’ Dickinson (1941 - 2009) wurde in Little Rock, Arkansas, geboren. Der Musikproduzent, Klavierspieler, Sänger und gefragte Sessionmusiker spielte 1969 Klavier auf dem Rolling Stones-Titel Wild Horses und 1971 bei ’Teenage Head’ von den Flamin’ Groovies. Mit den Dixie Flyers, einer Band mit Gitarrist Charlie Freeman, Keyboarder Mike Utley, Bassist Tommy McClure und Schlagzeuger Sammy Creason, die er in den späten Sechzigerjahren in Memphis gründete, begleitete Dickinson Aretha Franklin, Sam & Dave und zahllose andere Label-Soulkollegen im ATLANTIC-eigenen Studio in Miami, Florida. In Memphis war er später Chef der Americana-Band Mud Boy & the Neutrons. Als Dickinson 1972 sein erstes eigenes Album aufnahm (das nächste sollte erst dreißig Jahre später folgen!), galt er bereits als bestens bekannter Musiker und Produzent. Auf Anregung von Jerry Wexler von ATLANTIC RECORDS arbeiteten die Dixie Flyers bei annähernd jeder ATLANTIC-Soulsession als Studioband. Nur die Jungs aus den Muscle Shoals Studios wirkten bei mehr Aufnahmen mit. Zusätzlich wollte Wexler ein Album mit den Dixie Flyers selbst produzieren – ‚Dixie Fried’ war das Ergebnis, ein einzigartiger gelungener Mix aus Southern Boogie, Blues, Soul und Country Music, eine Ansammlung von neun handverlesenen Songs. ‚Dixie Fried’ wird oft als unentdecktes Juwel, als vergessenes Meisterwerk, als ein legendäres und nur schwer zu findendes, zeitloses Südstaaten-Album mit Kultstatus bezeichnet. Jeder einzelne Song besitzt diesen wilden und unberechenbaren Charm. Ein Album, das auch heute noch frisch klingt und in jener Musik aus Memphis verwurzelt ist, deren Ruf James Dickinson einst folgte. Besprechung von Jon Dale in UNCUT (UK), 27. November 2016: World boogie keeps on coming... James Luther Dickinson – Dixie Fried The late James Luther Dickinson was one of American music’s most elusive, intriguing musicians and producers. Part of the unpredictable Beale Street crowd from Memphis, Tennessee, his résumé reads like a free-styling, improvised narrative of American country, blues, folk, soul and rock. A limber, flexible player, he’s on Aretha Franklin’s Spirit In The Dark, The Flamin’ Groovies’ Teenage Head, and great sets from Jerry Jeff Walker and Ronnie Hawkins, among others: he also played piano for The Rolling Stones, on Wild Horses . Later in his career, Dickinson was a benign presence on albums by Bob Dylan, Tav Falco, Meat Puppets, Mudhoney, Primal Scream and Spiritualized. His production legend, however, rests on Big Star’s dissolute classic, Third/Sister Lovers. Listening to Dickinson’s first solo album, ´´Dixie Fried´´, recorded a couple of years before the Big Star set, you can start to hear how things ended up the way they did: while Dixie Fried is more coherent, there are still some seriously odd things going on. Like his eventual collaborator Alex Chilton, Dickinson takes liberties with songs, pulling them apart like taffy while scrawling graffiti over the musical backbone provided by a motley crew of players, including Mac Rebennack (aka Dr John), Memphis legend Sid Selvidge, and members of Dickinson’s session group, The Dixie Flyers. Dickinson’s version of Dylan’s protest song, ´´John Brown”, is a good example: low-slung and sprawling, his bolshy, colloquial vocal ties itself in knots over a rhythm section playing through fug and mud, the sax and slide tangling together as Terry Manning’s Moog dials in electronics seemingly from an entirely other recording session. Songs like this, the warped blues clatter of ´´O How She Dances” and the drunken, see-sawing bluff of ´´Casey Jones (On The Road Again)” are the heart of Dixie Fried, balanced as they are by more immediately straightforward performances, like the bawdy roar of the opening ´´Wine”, or the gospelised holler of the title cut, written by Carl Perkins. Throughout, Dickinson’s deeply invested in animating revenants,

George Abdo - The Art Of Belly Dancing (CD)
29,95 € *
zzgl. 3,99 € Versand

Middle East Instrumentals And Vocals (13 tracks / 51:25) Belly dancing is an ancient art. When danced to the rhythms of Middle Eastern music, it is a whole series of sensuous undulating move-ments that are very graceful, supple and fluid. The isolated body movements will take inches off your waist, abdomen, hips and thighs. It will tone up flabby and sagging muscles. It is an excellent form of exercising that will also help you to relax phys-ically and mentally from the tensions of everyday living. Begin by keeping in mind that your body must be completely relaxed at all times. Keep your back straight unless otherwise stated. The basic foot movements are danced in even rhythm, 4/4 time, with three steps to a measure pausing on the fourth beat as you bring your foot forward to begin all over again. You may begin on either foot, keeping each step fully in contact with the ground. The hands are rotated in a complete circle to the exact timing of the music. Bend them at the wrists slightly, flexing your fingers, similar to that of a Spanish dancer. (See Photo #1). The arms are bent at the elbows at all times. They are moved in all directions; both up over your head; down by your sides; one up over your head and one down in front of your navel; and out to your sides. The arm ripple is done by bringing your arms out to the side in a horizontal position. Raise one arm up bringing the other arm down at the same time in a rippling manner, to the rhythm of the music. If you push your shoulder forward slightly during this movement, you will get a beaut-iful effect similar to the movement of a snake. (See Photo # Belly Roll — Position your body by bringing your pelvis forward with your abdominal muscles pushed out. Bend back slightly at the waist in a cantilever fashion. (See Photo #3). Gradually start pulling your abdominal muscles in as you push your pelvis down, bending at the knees (the small of your back near your waist should be straight in this second position).(See Photo #4). Rock your pelvis backward relaxing your abdominal mus-cles as you bend slightly forward at the waist. (See Photo #5). Repeat these three basic belly roll move-ments continuously, rocking forward and back-ward until it resembles a waving motion. A com-plete belly roll movement is done to the count of four beats. All hip movements should be done in a can-tilever position in which the hips are brought for-ward as you bend back slightly from the waist up. This is very important. It will help you to move easier as well as give a beautiful effect. (See Photo #6). Horizontal Hip Movements—Sway your hips from side to side in a horizontal figure eight by first pushing up on the ball of your right foot, then sway to the left and vice versa. Repeat about three or four times to the rhythm of the music. Hip Shaking — Bend your right knee, keeping your left knee straight and vice versa. Start off slowly, gradually increasing your movements into a shimmy-shake. This can be done in a stationary position as well as in a fast walking movement. Lateral Neck Movements—To move your head from side to side, keep your head and body completely straight and move only your neck muscles, first to the right and then to the left. (See Photo #7). Once you have mastered this movement, you can easily rotate your head on its axis. Shoulder Shaking — Keep your body straight, re-laxing your shoulders completely. Bring your right shoulder forward and the left shoulder back at the same time in one movement. Move them con-tinuously in a graceful quivering manner to the rhythm of the music. Back Bend — A back bend should be included with any floor work that you should do. Do this gradually to prevent straining yourself. It is a beautiful movement and is an excellent exercise for strengthening your spine and firming your ab-dominal muscles and waistline. (See Photo #8). Finger Cymbals (Zils) — The finger cymbals are the most difficult to master. Although they are played to the beat of the music, they are not played to the same timing of the hands and feet. They are a very important and necessary part of the dance. Place one cymbal on your thumb and one on the second finger of each hand. (See Photo # I). Hit them strongly together and release them quickly to get a ringing sound. You may also get a clapping sound, which is equally as effective, by placing your first three fingers over each cymbal. Hit them together on your right hand and then on your left hand, repeating continuously to

(1996 ´Delmark´) (70:15/13) Eine Benefiz-Veranstaltung für die privat-finanzierte Blues-Radiosendung Steve Cushings. Grundsolider, wenngleich wenig spektakuläre Aufnahmen aus dem ´B.L.U.E.S.´ in Chicago - eine typische Bluesnacht in Chicago For 17 years DJ Steve Cushing has aired Blues Before Sunrise, the ´Blues Heritage Showcase´, over Chicago´s public radio station 91.5FM WBEZ, and for the last six years the rest of the country has also had a chance to hear his show via satellite syndication. Broadcast from midnight to 5 a.m., Blues Before Sunrise has long served an audience that includes loyal home listeners, musicians lounging on break, lovers in their living rooms, cab drivers and other service workers pulling the graveyard, and even teen airwave surfers discovering an entire musical world peopled by cats who were hip before them. Blues Before Sunrise showcases blues as part of a cultural landscape that includes jump and jive, rhythm and blues, swing, doo wop, gospel, comedy, and recitation, and never is the music presented as kitsch or retro fashion in the way that some music has been exploited and trivialized. For Cushing the blues is a living African-American tradition with deep roots. As a musician himself bearing substantial credentials with Magic Slim and The Teardrops, the Lee Jackson band and Smokey Smothers and The Ice Cream Men, Steve Cushing numbers among his friends and closest associates the artists on this recording-fellow musicians to whom this is a vital, thriving music as well as a means of making a living. Now gone independent and seeking permanent sponsors, Blues Before Sunrise held a benefit concert at Chicago´s B.L.U.E.S. on October 20, 1996 to purchase satellite time to keep the show on the air. The packed-to-the-doors fund-raiser featured artists Billy Boy Arnold, John Brim, Jimmie Lee Robinson, Taildragger, Big Wheeler, Jimmy Burns, Lurrie Bell, Willie Buck, Lester Davenport, Dave Myers, Sammy Fender and others&emdash;each an extraordinary practitioner of Chicago blues and together a full-credit, higher education history lesson in the blues. The portion of the show preserved on this CD is hair-bristling proof of among other things the constancy of the post-war sound and of the vitality of the ever-fruitful Chicago scene. Vocalist and harp player Big Wheeler leads off backed by Rockin´ Johnny Burgin, Dave Waldman and Cushing, as he was on his 1993 Delmark release Bone Orchard (Delmark 661), performing three original compositions solidly in the musical style of his other two selections, Muddy´s ´I´m Ready´ and Little Walter´s ´Got To Go.´ Gary, Indiana native John Brim reprises four of his now-classic Chess sides supported by some of the original Ice Cream Men (named by Illinois Slim when they played behind Otis ´Big Smokey´ Smothers who was one, and only coincidently also the name of one of Brim´s numbers) Cushing, Dave Waldman, Slim (Tom Morris), and Sho Komiya on bass, and on the last cut, Martin Lange on harp. Billy Boy Arnold still sounds like the young man he was when he waxed classic 45s ´Ain´t Got You´ and ´I Wish You Would´ in the mid-1950s. ´Streetwise Advisor´, a sly paean to the Bronzeville patter of his youth, is followed by a rock-the-house-down musical pastiche that begins as ´Stormy Monday´ and leads into a medley of verses from his mentor Sonny Boy (John Lee) Williamson. Johnny Burgin and The Lazy Boys provide crack period back-up with a contemporary freshness behind both Arnold and Jimmy Burns (they were also the studio band in Burn´s recent release Leaving Here Walking (Delmark 694) and they appear with him weekly at Smoke Daddy´s). Burns makes Jimmy Rogers´ ´You´re The One´ sound brand new, then closes out in thrilling fashion with the soulful, minor-key title track to his CD, a fitting end that effortlessly stretches the blues boundaries. These musicians (all of them heard regularly on Blues Before Sunrise) aren´t ´revival´ acts. They´re out there every day playing music that would never occur to them as being ´old´ or ´retro´ but instead is part of an ongoing cultural tradition. Put this platter on and spin your own private Chicago blues festival featuring some of the best current practitioners of the genre, courtesy of Blues Before Sunrise and Delmark Records. Then go out and see them live. And afterwards, tune in to the show. And may the sun never set on Blues Before Sunrise, or the Chicago Blues. --Justin O´Brien
