This Week's Playlist:(* = new)
Cay Elinden Oteye
Guitarist Bahadır Akkuzu, leader of the late great Anatolian (Turkish psychedelic)
rocker Barış Manço's band Kurtalan Ekspres (though not an original member;
the band launched in 1971 and he joined in 1980) passed away in August 2009.
Kurtalan Ekspres also backed another major Anatolian rock figure, Cem Karaca,
from Manço's death in 1999 until Karaca's death in 2004.
Some great images here:
Juan Calle and his Latin Lantzmen:
Mein Shtele Beltz
/ Mazel Tov Mis Amigos
/ Reboot Stereophonic
From the reissue liner notes (original LP was on Riverside, 1961): "Neither Juan Calle nor his Latin Lantzmen were actually Lantzmen, and only some of them were actually Latin. Juan Calle was John Cali, an Italian-American banjo picker and radio veteran best known for his work with the Vincent Lopez Orchestra and a string of solo banjo outings. His Latin Lantzmen included some of the biggest names in 50s and 60s Latin music-- conguero Ray Barretto, timbales guru Wilie Rodriguez, pianist Charlie Palmieri-- playing alongside African-American jazz greats Clark Terry, Doc Cheatham, Lou Oles, and Wendell Marshall. The sole Lantzmen were Yiddish vocalist Ed Powell, who appeared in the 1957 Ziegfield Follies but whose credits mostly seem to point to steady work as Riverside’s in-house engineer, and reed multi-tasker Shelley Russell, such a Lantzmen that, as the original liner notes told it, his background included 'playing at many a Jewish wedding.'"
/ Parang Queen
With La Divina Pastora. This song by the late queen of Parang is a Christmas classic in Trinidad.
"Parang is the act of merrymaking, music, dance, and food typical of the Hispanic community of Trinidad. While it is most actively performed during the Christmas season, parang (in its reference to music, dance and food) is also used in other festivals and ceremonies throughout the year."
