Amazons Das Rad der Zeit: Endlich Diversity in einer Fantasy-Serie

Gerade sind alle Augen auf Amazons Das Rad der Zeit gerichtet. Zum Teil, weil die Serie als neues Game of Thrones gilt, und auch, weil es die aufwendigste Serie ist, die Amazon je produziert hat – vor allem aber, weil die Hauptrollen (im Gegensatz zu anderen Fantasy-Shows!) divers besetzt sind. Diverses Casting in Fantasy-Serien lässt noch immer mehr auf sich warten als in anderen Genres; echte Repräsentation sucht man vielerorts vergebens. Verglichen mit den beinahe ausschließlich weißen Darste...

Terrace Martin Goes Deep On Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Herbie Hancock, Kamasi Washington, & His New Album Drones Out This Week

Back in the ’80s, jazz and hip-hop were often seen as being in conflict. Hip-hop’s locked-in, mechanical funk beats were seen as antithetical to the loose, human swing of jazz. But there were always players who defended the new music, and by the early ’90s jazz artists were attempting crossover projects. They often felt awkward and clumsy. It didn’t start to work until recently, when a generation of musicians who had grown up listening to hip-hop, breathing it like air, took their place in the j...

Ken Dodd, Stockhausen and Psycho: unlocking Paul McCartney’s musical genius

When the Pultizer-prize winning poet was asked to collaborate with the former Beatle on a book, he gained a unique insight into the creative process behind the band’s biggest hitsTowards the end of 2016 I had a phone call from an unfamiliar number. The voice, though, was immediately familiar. The newly elected Donald Trump introduced himself quite matter-of-factly. He lost no time in getting to the point: would I be willing to come to Washington to serve as his “Poetry Supremo”?That Sir Paul McC...

The Beach Boys’ Lost Concert: Watch the Band Perform Their Classics at Their Zenith (1964)

In early 1964, there could hardly have been an American teenager ignorant of the Beach Boys. Singing in immaculate harmonies about surfing, hot rods, girls, and root beer — as well as various combinations and permutations thereof — they soon found themselves riding an unprecedentedly high wave, so to speak, of postwar teen culture. On the other side of the pond, the Beatles had been hard at work playing to demographically similar, also-enraptured audiences. In February of 1964 the Fab Fo...

Watch The Trailer For New Insane Clown Posse Documentary United States Of Insanity

A 2011 FBI report classified Juggalos, fans of the controversial rap duo Insane Clown Posse, as a “loosely organized hybrid gang.” Viewing this as a dangerous precedent that would allow law enforcement to target people as criminals for their musical taste — or any number of other reasons — the ACLU teamed up with ICP to sue the FBI for discrimination. In 2017, Juggalos marched on Washington. Their ongoing legal battle with the United States federal government is the subject of the new documentar...

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 2 NFL Predictions

Welcome to 2021 Week 2 of the NFL season as things kicked off with a bang. Last week was bad, but it could have been much worse with my predictions. My record was 5-4, which falls way short on my quest to have at least a 70% winning percentage. The big shockers on Sunday had to be the Saints dominate the Packers for starters. The other one saw the Arizona Cardinals decimate the Tennessee Titans. On Monday, we saw one of, if not the best game when the Raiders beat the Ravens in OT. We will kick...

Netflix documentary looks at mob-affiliated minor league hockey club

Of course there's a tax crime connection. A defunct Connecticut minor league hockey club is the focus of a new Netflix documentary. The film's tales of the brawling Danbury Trashers offer this weekend's diversion, along with a bit of a tax connection. I fell in love with hockey when I went to my first game, a Washington Capitals match back in 1981 shortly after we moved to the National Capital area. Those early Capitals' teams sucked majorly. But they had some good individual players. ...

Kamasi Washington – “My Friend Of Misery” (Metallica Cover)

Last month, young Los Angeles jazz legend Kamasi Washington headlined the Hollywood Bowl, and his set featured a very cool surprise. Metallica’s Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo joined Washington and his band onstage, and they helped out on a cover of Metallica’s 1991 deep cut “My Friend Of Misery.” This, of course, is Washington’s contribution to the extremely strange new project The Metallica Blacklist, in which artists like Phoebe Bridgers and Weezer and Chris Stapleton cover tracks from Meta...

Album Of The Week: Wolves In The Throne Room Primordial Arcana

The veteran black metal wanderers Wolves In The Throne Room formed in Olympia, a beautiful little college town that also happens to be Washington’s state capital. Olympia has a lot of thrift shops and seafood restaurants. It’s a bougie place with hippie signifiers and a vague sense of encroaching methiness. K Records and Kill Rock Stars are both based in Olympia, and Kurt Cobain lived there for a while. Rancid wrote one of their best songs about wanting to get back to Olympia. A lot of great ind...

A Young Janis Joplin Plays a Passionate Set at One of Her First Gigs in San Francisco (1963)

From her early, unhappy teen years in Port Arthur, Texas, Janis Joplin seemed to know she wanted to be a blues singer. She once said she decided to become a singer when a friend “loaned her his Bessie Smith and Leadbelly records,” writes biographer Ellis Amburn. “Ten years later, Janis was hailed as the premier blues singer of her time. She paid tribute to Bessie by buying her a headstone for her unmarked grave.” She was devoted to the blues, from her earliest encounters with the music i...

Rickie Lee Jones talks ‘Last Chance Texaco’ and tales of music, heartache, addiction and family

Singer-songwriter Rickie Lee Jones says she decided to write her life story for one simple reason. The material was just so good. “I know I have great stories to tell,” she says recently by phone from her home in New Orleans. “I’ve told a few to audiences in live shows, and told them to friends, and watched them play in my head again and again.” Readers can now get the chance to experience these tales themselves in Jones’s memoir, “Last Chance Texaco,” which hit stores on April 6.

From Soul Train to Beyoncé: the joy of black performance in America

In A Little Devil in America, Hanif Abdurraqib set out to celebrate black artists across music, dance, comedy and more, who succeeded even when their own country refused to honour themWhen I began A Little Devil in America, I was thinking about Josephine Baker. The title of the book comes from Baker, from her speech at the March on Washington in 1963. It is a speech that is often overlooked. The legacy of the march so often centres on its male speakers (Martin Luther King Jr, A Philip Randolph),...

How Jazz Became the “Mother of Hip Hop” Jazz and hip hop have been in a lively conversation in recent years, breaking new ground for both forms, as the work of artists like Kendrick Lamar and his collaborators amply shows. Lamar created his majorly-acclaimed albums To Pimp a Butterfly and Damn with the indispensable playing and arranging of jazz-fusion saxophonist Kamasi Washington and his frequent sideman, bassist Stephen “Thundercat” Bruner, who have contributed to the work of Flyi...

What Rhymes with Hamilton?

I can't begin to tell you how much I miss making musicals. It's like someone cut a leg off.The only way I can keep my sanity during the Great Pandemic is to write about musical theatre. If I can't direct musicals for awhile, at least I can still do research and lots of pondering. I spent last year creating some really fun musical theatre novelty books -- a horror anthology, a Christmas carol collection, a children's book (that's not just for kids), and a "civilian's guide." And it was only last...

Don’t Think Twice: A Poignant Film Documents How Bob Dylan & The Beatles Bring Joy to a Dementia Patient

It’s often said the sense of smell is most closely connected to long-term memory. The news offers little comfort to us forgetful people with a diminished sense of smell. But increasingly, neuroscientists are discovering how sound can also tap directly into our deepest memories. Patients with Alzheimer’s and dementia seem to come alive, becoming their old selves when they hear music they recognize, especially if they were musicians or dancers in a former life. “Sound is evolutionarily ancien...

How John Coltrane Introduced the World to His Radical Sound in the Groundbreaking Recording of “My Favorite Things” John Coltrane released “more significant works” than his 1960 “My Favorite Things,” says Robin Washington in a PRX documentary on the classic reworking of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Broadway hit. “A Love Supreme” is often cited as the zenith of the saxophonist’s career. “But if you tried to explain that song to an average listener, you would lose them.
