This 1992 recording by the Garbarek Group has their customary blend of Norwegian folk themes and original compositions, with the leader's big-toned soprano and tenor saxophones at the heart of a music that combines cool lyricism and intense, if restrained, passion. It's the emotion that Garbarek can concentrate in a single note that distinguishes his work. His soprano is a keening wail in the unaccompanied introduction to "Brother Wind March," his high-register tenor an impassioned cry on "The Tall Tear Trees." Rainer Bruninghaus's piano provides a reflectively lyrical contrast, while the shifting rhythms of percussionists Manu Katche and Marilyn Mazur add variety to the reiterated themes. The CD is filled with distinctively Norwegian touches.
The Beat Daddys' new bump and grind CD, "Five Moons" makes you want to, well . . . . . bump and grind. The duo has called Malaco Records of Jackson, Mississippi home, since 1990. Drummers and bass players come and go, but the core of the Beat Daddys has remained Larry Grisham on lead vocals and Britt Meacham on lead guitar for 20 years. Larry says that they are the few, possibly, only white players signed by Malaco. Paul Scott is the band's drummer and they are actively seeking a full-time bassist.
All tracks of the new album were written by Grisham who lives in a FEMA trailer in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. His 6'5". frame doesn't fit into the "queen-sized" bed so he sleeps diagonally, and his feet still hang over the end, and his head hits the wall behind him. It's parked in the middle of a cow pasture which turns to mush at the first sign of rain. "But it's a place to stay, anyway. Getting up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night is an experience." He spends most of his days on the road, sleeping in motel and hotel rooms, spreading the wealth of the Beat Daddys experience. His parents lived on the bay in Bay St. Louis and lost everything to Katrina. They now live in Newburgh, Indiana…..
