Twistable, Turnable Man: A Musical Tribute to the songs of Shel Silverstein

























"Twistable, Turnable Man: A Musical Tribute to the songs of Shel Silverstein"

Shel Silverstein, as a writer, poet, and songwriter has influenced generations upon generations of kids (and kids at heart) with his brilliant, witty, and touching turns of
phrase. It is Silverstein's oft-overlooked catalog of classic songs that is the focus of this new all-star tribute. As a songwriter, Silverstein penned indelible songs for artists such as Johnny Cash, Dr. Hook, Loretta Lynn, Bobby Bare, and countless others. On this collection, lovingly produced by Bobby Bare Sr. and Bobby Bare Jr., two distinct generations of artists inspired by Silverstein have lined up to pay tribute. From Kris Kristofferson, Ray Price, and John Prine to Andrew Bird, Billy Bob Thornton's band the Boxmasters, Black Francis, My Morning Jacket, Dr. Dog and more, "Twistable, Turnable Man: A Musical Tribute to the Songs of Shel Silverstein" is an eclectic, endearing valentine to this giant of American song.

Elisa Randazzo - Colors





















"Threaded  with  folk and 70s California  rock sounds, "Bruises  and  Butterflies" is a deepand beautiful  singer  songwriter  listen."   (Drag City News)

Elisa Randazzo - Colors
'Colors' is taken from the upcoming Elisa Randazzo's debut solo full-length "Bruises and Butterflies," out on May 18th via Drag City.

Elisa Randazzo is an American musician, songwriter and clothing designer (‘Dusty of California’ and ‘Cameo’) based in California. Her 2010 release "Bruises & Butterflies" was born out of a series of late night writing and recording sessions with guitarist Aaron Robinson.  During a trip to New York in 2007, Randazzo forged a friendship and musical partnership with one of her icons, legendary 1970s British folk singer Bridget St John.  Two songs on this release are a result of their collaboration.

She juggled a range of musical projects, including her own band Fairchild with her then husband Josh Schwartz (ex. Beachwood Sparks, now Painted Hills) and Randazzo Robinson with Aaron Robinson. Her work as a violinist and singer spans releases like UK’s Fierce Panda label and P.I.A.S. While living in Los Angeles, Randazzo met musician-artist Mayo Thompson (of The Red Krayola), she played violin and sang with Red Krayola, joining the band in 1996, and touring the United States, Japan and Austria. She appeared on four Red Krayola LPs (Drag City), including "Sighs Trapped By Liars," which she recorded and co-sang in 2007.

Elisa was born in New York to well-known 1960s famous songwriters, Victoria Pike and Teddy Randazzo (who wrote hit pop songs such as 'Goin’ Out of My Head,' 'It’s Gonna Take a Miracle' and 'Hurt So Bad' and more).  Her Mom was also a prolific songwriter, writing psychedelic classics such as The Third Bardot's, 'I’m Five Years Ahead Of My Time,' (Nuggets collection).

Sneetches - Heloise


"San Francisco's Sneetches, guitarist Matt Carges, singer/guitarist Mike Levy, drummer Daniel Swan and, from Slow on, bassist Alejandro (Alec) Palao are one of the most tasteful, consistently tuneful pop bands on the American scene. Echoes of the Zombies, Left Banke and Easybeats (they've covered songs by all three) abound; simple, uncluttered arrangements let their like-minded originals' substantial charms shine through"    
[Scott McCaughey/John M. Borack] 
(An excerpt from Trouser Press review, read MORE.)



'Heloise' from the Sneetches' third album "Slow" (Alias/1991) containing a cover track of the Left Banke's 'She May Call You Up Tonight.'  They also collaborated with Chris Wilson in 1993 on "Chris Wilson and the Sneetches"  (Marilyn/1993)

Now The Sneetches are now Available on iTunes!

Clutchy Hopkins - Verbal Headlock



From the new Clutchy Hopkins album "The Story Teller" on Ubiquity Records. This track already awarded among the year's best on Gilles Peterson's Worldwide show on BBC Radio 1. Directed by: Christian Borstlap, he is an amsterdam based art director and sometimes film director, edited by Jorrit Spoelstra.




















It’s the most varied Hopkins album to date encompassing lots of vocal textures, and a dash of worldly vibes. Check the Brazilian-psyche-like “No Contact…Contact,” and the mad spooky science of “Miles Chillin,” or the shuffling “Thinkin’ of Eva” which would sound perfectly at home playing in a Parisian café. It’s an album influenced by Hopkins time in jail, where, while in the courtyard, he met many international prisoners waiting to be deported. Lo-fi, acoustic, finger- snapping, hand-clapping, whistle-and-hummed jam sessions gave Hopkins the ideas which he later put to tape. The album booklet will include the entire story, unfiltered. (Ubiquity Records)

"A King in Milwaukee" Documentary DVD



David Greenberger (a writer and radio commentator best known for his Duplex Planet series of zines, comic books, CDs, spoken word performances and radio plays) transforms interviews with sixty Milwaukee elders into 38 songs, a CD ("Cherry Picking Apple Blossom Time") and an emotionally rich concert performance with the Paul Cebar (known as Paul Ceber and the Milwaukeeans) Stage Ensemble.


"A King In Milwaukee" is a thirty-minute documentary by Nicole Brown and Brad Lichtenstein follows Greenberger through his three-month Milwaukee-based project. Beginning with his conversations at a range of elderly facilities, talking specifically with people who have memory loss – some not even noticeable, others profoundly so; from there it moves to Greenberger's collaboration with Cebar as they worked with members of his band and other Milwaukee and Chicago musicians, creating and arranging the pieces in the studio. The culmination is their triumphant concert at the historic Pabst Theater.

The DVD also includes the one-hour concert film, "Cherry Picking Apple Blossom Time," produced by MPTV (Milwaukee Public Television). The DVD includes additional footage and deleted scenes from the documentary (including one number which isn’t even on the CD).

The DVD is available from UWM’s Center on Age & Community

by sunshinetunes67 (Thanks!) 
 
'Witchi Tai To' was written by Jim Pepper (1941-1992), he was an American jazz saxophonist, composer, and singer of Native American ancestry.  Here is a description about the song from Wiki,

Of Kaw and Creek heritage, Pepper also achieved notoriety for his compositions combining elements of jazz and Native American music. Don Cherry and Ornette Coleman encouraged Pepper to reflect his roots and heritage and incorporate it into his jazz playing and composition. His 'Witchi Tai To' (derived from a peyote song of the Native American Church which he had learned from his grandfather) is the most famous example of this hybrid style; the song has been covered by many other artists including Harper's Bizarre, Ralph Towner (with and without Oregon), Jan Garbarek, and Brewer & Shipley. Pepper supported the American Indian Movement.
