Singer-songwriter Josh Ritter will officially issue his new studio album Gathering on Friday, September 22 though Pytheas Recordings/Thirty Tigers. The album featuring a guest appearance by Bob Weir.
Weir appears on the song “When Will I Be Changed,” which is one of 13 tracks appearing on Gathering. Ritter and Weir collaborated extensively on the Grateful Dead guitarist’s 2016 solo album Blue Mountain.
Recording sessions for Gathering were held with engineer Trina Shoemaker at Clubhouse studio in Rhinebeck, New York. Ritter was supported his The Royal City Band featuring Zachariah Hickman (bass, acoustic guitar, wurlitzer), Sam Kassirer (piano, organ, synthesizers, percussion), Josh Kaufman (guitar, synthesizer) and Ray Rizzo (drums, percussion).
“I began with an exciting sense of dissatisfaction, and what emerged, as I began to find my voice, was a record full of storms,” said Ritter in a statement. “I still can’t tell what era these stories are from. They feel part roustabout, part psalm to me.”

Nicholas Allbrook is currently the frontman in Pond; he was Tame Impala’s bassist until he left the band in 2013. In 2014, he released his solo debut LP Ganough, Wallis and Futuna. Today, he’s announced its follow-up, Pure Gardiya, out May 27 via Spinning Top.
Pianists Arturo O’Farrill and Chucho Valdés celebrate their rich musical family legacies on ambitious, gloriously realized Familia: Tribute to Bebo & Chico. Although they grew up on separate shores, O’Farrill in New York (via Mexico) and Valdés in Cuba, they both came of age in musical households as the sons of legendary Cuban bandleaders Chico O’Farrill and Bebo Valdés. Along with icons like Chano Pozo, Machito, and Dizzy Gillespie, the elder O’Farrill and Valdés were giants of Afro-Cuban music. Similarly, just as their fathers helped further the dissemination and creative development of Afro-Cuban and Latin jazz, Arturo and Chucho are innovators in their own rights, with decades of experience playing both traditional Cuban music and ultra-modern jazz.
Impressively, they bring all that history to bear on Familia, a two-disc collection featuring songs composed by their fathers, as well as new compositions inspired by their lives growing up in such deeply artistic families. Joining them here are their equally talented children, including trumpeter Adam O’Farrill, drummer Zack O’Farrill, pianist Leyanis Valdés, and drummer Jessie Valdés. Also on board are the members of Arturo O’Farrill’s own Grammy Award-winning Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra.
Disc one primarily features the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra and finds O’Farrill and Valdés taking a more traditional, if still dazzling approach on cuts like the merengue-infused “BeboChicoChuchoTuro” and a lushly orchestrated reading of Bebo Valdés’ “Ecuacion.” Also compelling are the pianist’s solo turns on Chico O’Farrill’s “Pianitis” and O’Farrill’s homage to his parents, “Fathers, Mothers, Sons, Daughters,” which features several sparkling cadenzas from pianist Leyanis Valdés.
Disc two showcases the smaller, post-bop-leaning Third Generations Ensemble, in which they explore the more progressive edges of Afro-Cuban jazz. Here, trumpeter (and third place finisher at the 2014 Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition) Adam O’Farrill shines, revealing his knack for harmonically adventurous improvisation à la Woody Shaw on the kinetic and fractured “Run and Jump.” Similarly, the trumpeter breathes new life into Chico O’Farrill’s “Pura Emocion” framed by his father’s taut, angular arrangement. Elsewhere, Zack O’Farrill contributes the expansive “Gonki Gonki” (his mother’s way of describing the sound of rhythmic piano montunos) and Chucho offers the lushly virtuosic solo track “Para Chico.”
The sheer amount of virtuosity on display on Familia: Tribute to Bebo & Chico might well be overwhelming if the music itself weren’t so warmly and beautifully rendered.

Hive Mind, a promising new label from Brighton, UK, present the hypnotic final recordings by respected Moroccan Gnawa singer and guimbri player Maalem Mahmoud Gania. Prolific within his own country, releasing on Tichkaphone, La Voix El Maaraf and Sonya Disquesm as well as western labels and musicians, Gania truly traversed genres during the course of his 45 year career. The musician worked with everyone from jazz great Pharoah Sanders (on collaborative 1994 record The Trance of Seven Colours) to electronic musicians Floating Points and James Holden (on 2015 EP Marhaba). To our untrained ears, the songs follow very similar schematics, with Gania’s bluesy hustle offset by rustling percussion and harmonised vocals in subtle variations that almost recall Raime’s…
…tooth album in their variation-on-a-theme riffs and swingeing percussions.
Gnawa is an ancient traditional Moroccan spiritual music, characterised by its trance-inducing rhythms, and still widely popular today. Gania was a master of the sintir – a three-stringed, Moroccan bass lute. Born in 1951 and brought up in the coastal city of Essaouira, Mahmoud was raised in one of the country’s great Gnawa families.
The release has been licensed directly from the Gania family and comes with the support of all who were involved in the original recordings. The album was produced by Ali Faraoui at Plein Les Oreilles in Casablanca in 2013 and was mastered by Julian Tardo at Church Road Studio, Hove in December 2016. On these recordings, Maalem Mahmoud Gania was accompanied on qraqebs and backing vocals by his sons, Hamza and Houssam Gania, and by Karima el Filali, Asmae Hamzaoui, Chaimae Lofti, Ahmed Elbnoua, Mehdi Mnouer, Abdellah Malibo and Soufiane Aghmam.

On the ninth album since her 2004 debut, “Night Songs,” Kitchener singer-songwriter Lynn Jackson decided to embrace a new way of recording.
After co-producing many of her previous records, Jackson said she was eager to hand over the recording reins to someone else for “Follow That Fire,” which will receive its hometown release at The Boathouse next Friday.
“I was just getting tired of my own ideas, my own sort of toolbox. I needed to go and start fresh with somebody else who has their own ideas on how to do things and it can be really refreshing that way,” she said in a phone interview this week. “I was just up for anything; I was just up for change, and up for a brand new approach.”
Jackson asked Cowboy Junkies guitarist and songwriter Michael Timmins to produce “Follow That Fire” a couple of months after meeting him backstage at last year’s Kitchener Blues Festival. Recorded at Timmins’s studio The Hangar in downtown Toronto earlier this year, the album is a dark and compelling collection of songs with themes of death, dreams, and the passage of time.
Jackson said Timmins, who also plays electric guitar on the record, not only helped shape the sound of the album, but her vocal performances as well.
“He said that he really wanted the stories of all the songs to stand out, so he thought that the best approach would be to go for something that’s kind of intimate, even in the vocal delivery. Instead of really belting things out, to try to pull back as a device to draw the audience into the words and into the stories. I always spend a lot of time on the words, but to try to sing in a more intimate fashion, that was different for me, but I just trusted that I liked the stuff that he’s done before, the stuff that he’s produced before, and I’m really happy with the results,” she said.
The album also features guest appearances by Josh Finlayson and Andy Maize of the Skydiggers, who Jackson originally met through her friend and one-time Skydiggers guitarist Paul MacLeod. Maize sings harmony vocals on “Meet Me In The City,” a song inspired by a dream Jackson had about MacLeod and another friend and local songwriter, Mo’ Kauffey, both of whom died last year.
“It was a really peaceful dream. I knew they were going on a trip, and they were going to be gone for a long time, and we went out for a couple of drinks and told some stories and told some jokes, and then actually in the dream they got on a bus and they waved goodbye, and everybody was happy,” she said. “And I got up and I wrote that song.”
The song “Random Breakdowns, False Starts & New Beginnings,” was also written for MacLeod, to whom the album is dedicated. Jackson said MacLeod and other local songwriters like Shannon Lyon had a major impact on her when she first began attending shows at the Walper Hotel in the late ’90s.
“I just couldn’t believe how great everybody was, at songwriting, at guitar playing, at stage presence, it was all there,” she said. “And Paul, for sure, an amazing guitar player, an amazing entertainer, he would have the crowd eating out of the palm of his hand. And I would just watch in awe as he would play that guitar and sing really, really difficult songs, really great original songs, very melodic.”
The history of music is always being written and rewritten, and in its latest draft, the Afro-rock pioneers WITCH are legends, with a fan base growing beyond the borders of their home in Zambia 45 years after their debut record. The lead singer and sole survivor of the original lineup, Emmanuel “Jagari” Chanda, is heading out on WITCH’s first European tour, which will be featured in a documentary about the band’s rise and the tough times that followed for its members.
Chanda grew up in a Zambia that became independent from Britain in 1964, listening closely to the radio that played artists like the Who, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. The latter were especially influential on either Chanda or his fans, because early in his musical career he took on the nickname “Jagari,” an Africanization of Sir Mick’s handle. It’s a fitting nickname for the lead singer of a band that created a British-influenced rock ‘n’ roll that was distinctly Zambian.
WITCH, whose name started out meaning just the broomstick rider and was later reconfigured to stand for “We Intend To Cause Havoc,” released the first commercial record in the young country’s history in 1972. They became the biggest band in what became known as “Zamrock,” Zambian polyrhythms fused with Deep Purple-esque fuzz. They played gigs that lasted up to six hours, complete with stage diving and costumes, and released more albums. But both the band and the country were in for rough times as the ’70s proceeded.
The government began instituting a strict curfew, which made live music a tougher proposition. Chanda ended up leaving the band, which went on to make two more records that were influenced by disco, before calling it quits. In the 1980s, Zambia was hit by economic turmoil and also the AIDS epidemic, which took the lives of the other four founding members of WITCH. An understandably distraught Chanda would eventually find work as a gemstone miner and become a born-again Christian.
But in the 2010s, the music of WITCH has caught on with curious listeners. European fans of WITCH have offered to accompany Chanda, along with Patrick Mwondela from the “Disco WITCH” on his new tour and the whole experience is being turned into a documentary that, ideally, will be released in 2018.
They were unknown legends in their own time, but it looks like WITCH is getting its due. Let’s hope an American tour soon follows.

EGO ON THE ROCKS
Από τα καλύτερα ελεκτρορόκ άλμπουμ των έιτις. Γερμαναράδες, με προϊστορία στα συγκροτήματα της προηγούμενης δεκαετίας. Σ’ αυτό το στυλ οι Εγγλέζοι κοιτάγανε πάντα με… ανοιχτό το στόμα τους Γερμανούς. Το άλμπουμ το είχα αγοράσει, πολύ φτηνά, πριν χρόνια, από το Σόλωνος & Μασσαλίας. Τώρα, καινούριο, έχει την τιμούλα του…
Η λέξη "τοξικός" πάει να γίνει η πιο σιχαμένη μου μετά την "εμβληματικός".
Ο Χρύσανθος υπήρξε μία από τις μεγαλύτερες φωνές της Ελλάδας τον περασμένο αιώνα. Μαζί με την Κάλλας, το Στέλιο, το Γούναρη, το Στελλάκη Περπινιάδη και το… Ρουβά. Ακούστε τον εδώ σε πανηγυριώτικη διάθεση, με φαρφίζα, ηλεκτρική κιθάρα κ.λπ. Στο τέλος τραγουδάει και σε… ξένες γλώσσες. Αυτός που φουμέρνει θεριακλίδικα στη φωτό είναι άσχετος.
Φέρε μπύρες, κουτί, φτηνές, για να μην κοπούμε και να ’χουμε να πίνουμε…
Ορισμένοι, σαν τον Δημήτρη Κανελλόπουλο από το e-tetRadio, προσπαθούν να μας δημιουργήσουν… ενοχές, επειδή δεν ήμασταν στη συναυλία Αγγελάκα-Παυλίδη προχθές στην Τεχνόπολη! Σιγά μην κλάψω…
Αυτό το πανηγύρι της Διεθνούς Έκθεσης Θεσσαλονίκης, με τους φτηνούς πολιτικούς μας, τον έναν μετά το άλλον να λένε ό,τι αηδία τους κατέβει στο κεφάλι, μου προκαλεί εμετό. Είναι ένα έθιμο, που πρέπει να εκλείψει, γιατί, και αυτό, κοστίζει πολλά στον ελληνικό λαό. Δεν ξέρω, δε, αν πρέπει να καταργηθεί και η ίδια η ΔΕΘ, καθότι δεν είμαι σίγουρος αν βγάζει πλέον τα λεφτά της.
Αφήνω κατά μέρος το γεγονός πως, για μένα, από τότε που χάθηκαν το Φεστιβάλ Ελαφρού Τραγουδιού (που γινόταν Σεπτέμβρη) και το Φεστιβάλ Κινηματογράφου (που ξεκινούσε επίσης Σεπτέμβρη και όχι Νοέμβρη) η ΔΕΘ έχει χάσει παν ενδιαφέρον.
Και θα πρέπει να βρεθούν τρόποι ώστε κάτι τέτοιο να γίνεται αλλιώς, για να μην υπάρχουν σκιές τού στυλ… ορισμένοι εκμεταλλεύονται κάποια κοινωνικά γεγονότα, για να προωθήσουν την καριέρα τους.
