Ohm - Raw Ohm



Quote:
Ohm is a Fort Worth, Texas based band founded by Nathan Brown (bass, drums), Doug Ferguson (electronic, mellotron), Chris Forrest (bass and soprano clarinet), S. Forest Ward (percussion, sax) and Mason Weisz (guitar). Started in mid 90s, they represent one of the most interesting bands of the Texan scene, spreading an original cosmic sound through a couple of albums: "O2" (Timothy's Brain, 1997) and "Voices" (Two Ohm Hop, 1999) which exposed Ohm music through inner and outer space. "Raw Ohm" captures the Texan cosmic couriers live during various concerts.

Ohm - Voices



Quote:
Two years after the release of their first LP (02) improvisation artist Ohm, (FT. Worth Texas) makes their first full length cd appearance. Speaking without words, Voices will take the listener on an instrumental journey of emotion through sound, using unorthodox instrumentation. Nathan Brown (drums, bass), Doug Ferguson (analog keyboards, electronics, mellowtron), Chris Forrest (clarinet, bass clarinet), S. Forest Ward (percussion, baritone sax, various).

Tone Float - Music Von Tone Float



Quote:
Tone Float is well assembled experimental 'dreamy space rock'. Liked all eight of this CD's tracks. But the true highlights are "Tonight We All Sleep With The Eggroll King", the awesome "Vapourspace Aquarium", the ten-minute epic "Millipede" and "Blood Red Horizon". Noticed this disc featured long time members of Vas Deferens Organization - Eric Lumbleau, Matt Castille and Doug Ferguson along with members of Mazinga Phaser (the Texas psych band). Not a bad choice here, really - just may be a bit out-there for some listeners. Might draw in devoted followers of Neu!, O.H.M., Can and early King Crimson.
Quote:
MIT consists of Mazinga Phaser leader Wanz Dover, Ohm's Doug Ferguson, and the Vas Deferens Organization's Matt Castille and Eric Lumbleau. Musik von Tone Float is one of the warmest and friendliest examples of this kind of music you're likely to encounter; the VDO crew in particular did an excellent job of subduing its impulses toward confrontational freakiness. We're definitely in the realm of soundtrack here, running the gamut from random noises shooting through space ("tonight we sleep with the eggroll king") to slowly-building tribal stomps ("millipede"), but the whole trip is quite seamlessly constructed. A fascinating peek in a surprising direction.
Quote:
A sonic portfolio of the Texas psych/Krautrock inspired scene it represents, but also an homage to the heavily lysergic first Kraftwerk album under the name Organisation; as the rave review in Alternative Press rightly pointed out, "words cannot do justice to the utterly outlandish studio experiments Tone Float achieve here." And quite rightly, AP are quick to praise the "sonic sorcery" that pervades these cosmic corridor wanderings, this "sublimely demented carnival music."

Prince - Originals, 96/24 FLAC. First listen. This album just came out today, but I'm probably not the first to say it should be called "Demos." There's some "deep tracks" I hadn't heard, but the versions of the hits here are definitely as not as good as the real 'Originals.' Solid get for Prince aficionados (like me) who might be interested in the process, but likely won't thrill anyone else.

Dr. John, the flamboyant New Orleans singer-pianist whose hoodoo-drenched music made him the summarizing figure of the grand Crescent City R&B/rock ‘n’ roll tradition, died Thursday of a heart attack at age 77.

“Towards the break of day June 6, iconic music legend Malcolm John Rebennack, Jr., known as Dr. John, passed away of a heart attack,” a statement on his social media pages said. “The family thanks all whom shared his unique musical journey & requests privacy at this time. Memorial arrangements will be announced in due course.”

Rebennack had already tallied more than a decade of experience as a session musician in his hometown and Los Angeles when he rose to solo fame in the late ‘60s after concocting his voodoo-influenced, patois-laced persona of “the Night Tripper.”

His early ‘70s work was distinguished by a collection of historic New Orleans favorites, “Gumbo,” and a pair of albums with famed New Orleans producer-arranger-songwriter Allen Toussaint and funk quartet the Meters – the first of which, “In the Right Place,” spawned a top-10 hit.

He memorably branched into traditional pop with his 1989 album “In a Sentimental Mood”; the album spawned the first of his six Grammy Awards, for “Makin’ Whoopee,” a duet with Ricki Lee Jones.

In 2008, his Grammy-winning collection “City That Care Forgot” dwelled movingly on the havoc wreaked on his city by 2005’s Hurricane Katrina.

As an in-demand sideman, he recorded with Levon Helm, Gregg Allman, Van Morrison, Harry Connick, Jr., Ringo Starr and B.B. King, among others. He released “Triumvirate,” a “super session” date with guitarists Mike Bloomfield and John Hammond, Jr., in 1973.

His turns on the big screen ranged from a memorable performance in Martin Scorsese’s documentary about the Band’s farewell performance “The Last Waltz” (1978) to an appearance as a member of the fictional “Louisiana Gator Boys” in “Blues Brothers 2000” (1998). He guested regularly on the New Orleans-set HBO dramatic series “Treme” in 2010-13.

He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011.

Dr. John was married twice and told the New York Times that he had "a lot" of children.

On June 6, 2019, Dr. John died of a heart attack. His family announced through his publicist that he died at break of day, and "He created a unique blend of music which carried his home town, New Orleans, at its heart, as it was always in his heart."

The Pine Box Boys - The Feast of Three Arms





For something a little different, this one must be listened to straight through. My morning listen. Quite entertaining.


Quote:
Over the course of four albums, San Francisco’s THE PINE BOX BOYS have charted the course of a killer named Willie who, accompanied by a rogue’s gallery of other nefarious types, slashed a bloody career across the south and westward to the territories. On their fifth album, The Feast Of Three Arms, the murder balladeers introduce us to Willie’s cousin, Jubal with No Last Name, and his quest to kill the man that did his mama wrong. This detailed tail is delivered through seventeen movements, with Raww leading each ballad with a spoken oration, setting the scene for each subsequent musical segment of this ill-omened tale to unfold. The album features guest contributions of fiddle by Alisa Rose and keys by Nigel Pavao, was recorded at Coast Recording and mixed at Discrete Recording, both in San Francisco, and completed with artwork by Tabitha “Stabitha” Lahr.

Scobey and his Frisco Band! is an album by Bob Scobey, released in 1961.

Robert Alexander Scobey Jr. (December 9, 1916 – June 12, 1963) was an American jazz musician. He took up the cornet while in elementary school, almost abandoned music for a career in chemistry, but ultimately decided to stick with music. He began his career playing in dance orchestras and nightclubs in the 1930s. From the beginning, Bob Scobey’s playing was bursting with energy and a headlong drive—pushing ahead of the beat, syncopating his phrases, and using a pronounced vibrato. In 1938, he worked as second trumpeter for Lu Watters in the Yerba Buena Jazz Band.

By 1949, he was leading his own band under the name Bob Scobey's Frisco Band.

In 1953, Louis Armstrong sang with them at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium. In 1955, Scobey and his band played dates at San Quentin Prison. From early in 1956, he toured colleges and universities, and in 1958 he recorded many of the student favorites in New York, the album College Classics.

Clancy Hayes joined the band to sing and play banjo. The collaboration recorded over two hundred tracks until he left in 1959 to follow a solo career. The Scobey-Clancy partnership dissolved in seething ill will, according to most accounts, over who should receive top billing when they recorded a jingle for Marlboro cigarettes.

In 1959, Scobey opened the Club Bourbon Street, Chicago. While touring in 1960, he was reportedly drinking half and half or heavy cream to ease the pain in his stomach. He was diagnosed with stomach cancer and given only days to live. He managed to survive awhile longer, and went to Canada to seek treatment not available in the United States. Sadly, the treatments were not effective, and Bob Scobey passed away on June 12, 1963.

His wife Jan wrote his biography and arranged for his band to form again and record some blues songs.

The Best of Eddie Rabbitt is a compilation album by Eddie Rabbitt, released in 1979.

Edward Thomas Rabbitt (November 27, 1941 – May 7, 1998) was an American singer and songwriter. Rabbitt was born to Irish immigrants Mae (née Joyce) and Thomas Michael Rabbitt in Brooklyn, New York. His father was an oil-refinery worker, and a skilled fiddle and accordion player, who often entertained in local New York City dance halls. By age twelve Rabbitt was a proficient guitar player. During his childhood Eddie became a self-proclaimed "walking encyclopedia of country music". After his parents divorced, he dropped out of school at age sixteen. His mother said that Eddie "was never one for school because his head was too full of music."

His career began as a songwriter in the late 1960s, springboarding to a recording career after composing hits such as "Kentucky Rain" for Elvis Presley in 1970 and "Pure Love" for Ronnie Milsap in 1974.

In 1977, the Academy of Country Music named Rabbitt "Top New Male Vocalist of the Year". By that time he had a good reputation in Nashville, and was being compared by critics to singer Kris Kristofferson. While he was still relatively unknown, Rabbitt toured with and opened for crossover star Kenny Rogers, and also opened for Dolly Parton on a number of dates during her 1978 tour.

Later in the 1970s, Rabbitt helped to develop the crossover-influenced sound of country music prevalent in the 1980s with such hits as "Suspicions" and "Every Which Way but Loose" (the theme from the film of the same title). His duets "Both to Each Other (Friends and Lovers)" with Juice Newton and "You and I" with Crystal Gayle, appeared on the soap operas Days of Our Lives and All My Children.

Rabbitt's album Horizon reached platinum status and contained the biggest crossover hits of his career, "I Love a Rainy Night" and "Drivin' My Life Away." Rabbitt developed "Rainy Night" from a song fragment that he penned during a 1960s thunderstorm. "Driving" recalled Rabbitt's tenure as a truck driver, and was inspired by Bob Dylan's song "Subterranean Homesick Blues".

Rabbitt felt it was his responsibility as an entertainer to be a good role model and was an advocate for many charitable organizations including the Special Olympics, Easter Seals, and the American Council on Transplantation, of which he served as the honorary chairman. He also worked as a spokesman for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and United Cerebral Palsy.

In 1997, Rabbitt was diagnosed with lung cancer and received radiation treatment and surgery to remove part of one lung. He died on May 7, 1998, in Nashville at the age of 56.

A World Apart is the debut soundtrack by Hans Zimmer, released in 1987.

Sountrackdreams review:
“A World Apart”, the score for an anti-apartheid movie from 1988, is Hans Zimmer’s first solo score. This is where it all started; this is Superman’s first flight.

In “Amadla”, after the speech ends, we get the first Zimmer cue. It’s not a very complicated synth melody, but this is where Hans’ music opened its eyes. It was just a spark, but it lit a flame that never went out. The suite from “A world apart”, worth 17 minutes, is beautiful. It is an eerie, melodic and lovely composition that doesn’t feel like it is part of someone’s first score. There’s depth and a lot of emotion in it and it feels like a presentation for Hans Zimmer’s late 80s / early 90s portfolio. There’s the variation that will become “Show me your fire truck” a few years later! There’s the melancholy that will haunt me in “Rain man”. I can’t get enough of this suite and I am very happy to have discovered it. Once I listen to it I feel the need to go through the scores it made me think of, and this is how I end up lost for an entire day in Hans’ music…

For Hans Zimmer fans, this score is a must listen.
AllMusic Review:
Hans Zimmer's soundtrack to the apartheid melodrama A World Apart is as impassioned and moving as the film its self, filled with tugging strings and wrenching emotions. Occasionally, South African musical instruments and motifs are worked into the score, but the music, for the most part, is as moving as Hollywood scores can ever get.
Hans Florian Zimmer (born 12 September 1957) is a German film score composer and record producer. Zimmer's works are notable for integrating electronic music sounds with traditional orchestral arrangements. Zimmer was born in Frankfurt am Main, West Germany. As a young child, he played the piano at home but had piano lessons only briefly as he disliked the discipline of formal lessons. He said "My formal training was 2 week(s) of piano lessons. I was thrown out of 8 schools. But I joined a band. I am self-taught. But I've always heard music in my head. And I'm a child of the 20th century; computers came in very handy. My mother was very musical, basically a musician and my father was an engineer and an inventor. So, I grew up modifying the piano, shall we say, which made my mother gasp in horror, and my father would think it was fantastic when I would attach chainsaws and stuff like that to the piano because he thought it was an evolution in technology. My father died when I was just a child, and I escaped somehow into the music and music has been my best friend."

Since the 1980s, he has composed music for over 150 films. His works include The Lion King, for which he won the Academy Award for Best Original Score in 1995, the Pirates of the Caribbean series, Interstellar, Gladiator, Inception, Dunkirk, and The Dark Knight Trilogy. He has received four Grammy Awards, three Classical BRIT Awards, two Golden Globes, and an Academy Award.

A turning point in Zimmer's career occurred with the 1988 film Rain Man. Hollywood director Barry Levinson was looking for someone to score Rain Man, and his wife heard the soundtrack of the anti-apartheid drama A World Apart, for which Zimmer had composed the music. Levinson was impressed by Zimmer's work and hired him to score Rain Man. Zimmer has collaborated on multiple projects with directors including Ridley and Tony Scott, Penny Marshall, Ron Howard, John Woo, Michael Bay, Gore Verbinski, Antoine Fuqua, Steve McQueen, Zack Snyder, Denis Villeneuve, and Christopher Nolan.

He is on the list of Top 100 Living Geniuses, published by The Daily Telegraph. He is the head of the film music division at DreamWorks studios.
