The Rippingtons Featuring Russ Freeman - "Côte D'Azur" 2/1/11 Peak Records #jazz

Fans that have followed Russ Freeman and The Rippingtons for any stretch of time over the past quarter century know the versatile award winning and Grammy® nominated guitarist/composer and producer has long had a penchant for naming songs and albums after exotic places (“Aruba,” “Kenya,” “Morocco,” Weekend in Monaco, Sahara, et al). But The Ripps’ latest Peak Records recording Cote D’Azur--inspired by Freeman’s passion for the French people and the storied region of the French Riviera—is more than simply the latest stamp on Freeman’s well traveled passport. Beyond simple wanderlust or a gathering of “musical postcards” from the Southern region of France, it taps into a spirit that’s deeper and more transcendent than any other group project to date.

All of the songs on Cote D’Azur tell stories of Freeman’s extensive travels in France with his wife Yaredt Leon, a hit songwriter in her own right who contributed tracks to the Ripps Latin-themed Wild Card (2005) and Modern Art (2009). Cote D’Azur is bookended with songs they wrote together, the high energy title track and the beautiful “Mesmerized.” Yaredt has been Freeman’s consummate travel partner these past years. For a time, he couldn’t get enough of Italy, but the minute Leon (whose mixed heritage is Colombian-French) introduced him to her father’s homeland of France, Freeman was hooked.

After so many excursions to the country--and train trips from Paris to Cote D’Azur (the French Riviera)--that he loses count, Freeman felt music stirring inside him that was exotic, deeper and more heartfelt than any he had ever written and produced before —quite a bold statement considering that their music has played such a defining role in contemporary jazz since the release of Moonlighting in 1986. He also feels that both musically and technically, Cote D’Azur takes an incredible leap forward.

“This is the best album I’ve ever written,” he says, “and unlike on any other Rippingtons recording, the music is a pristine crystallization of the way I first heard it in my head. I think the incredible cultural connection between France and America hit me one night in Nice when I was watching a show on the history of St. Tropez. Brigitte Bardot was so well known as a model and film actress, but in the 60s she also did hundreds of music videos of French remakes of songs that were big hits in America. Remakes of everything from Elvis to the Beatles were huge. Johnny Hallyday is a French music superstar who patterned himself after Elvis. All of this taught me how close our cultures really are. They also were big into American surf music in the early

60s, and that inspired the new song ‘Le Calypso.’ All of this, combined with Yaredt’s French heritage, really made me fall in love with the country.”

Cote D’Azur is a daring, full-scale exploration of world that fascinates Freeman and, as he has discovered, has more ties to American culture than he ever imagined. So much so that on tour throughout the U.S. in the summer of 2010, The Rippingtons gave their thousands of loyal fans an extraordinary gift. Months before the official release of the album, the band complemented their run of classic hits with an unprecedented sweep of six songs from the new collection.

1. Côte D'Azur 4:21
2. Le Calypso 3:32
3. Bandol 3:50
4. Sainte Maxime 4:15
5. Postcard From Cannes 4:22
6. Passage To Marseilles 3:40
7. Provence 4:25
8. Riviera Jam 3:25
9. Rue Paradis 4:34
10. Mesmerized 3:24

Shilts - "See What Happens " - Debut Solo Project #jazz

Saxophonist Paul "Shilts" Weimar's pedigree as a retro-funk sideman is so extensive and impressive that anything less than a mindblowingly groove-happy solo debut would be a disappointment. He's played behind legendary jazz artists (Nancy Wilson, Mel Tormé) and classic soul groups (the Temptations, the Four Tops), and then became best-known for his touring with the Brand New Heavies and Jamoroquai. From there, he became a founding member of Down to the Bone, which brings all types of wild funk elements into smooth jazzland. He goes crazy from the beginning of the title track, blowing heavy tenor over a wild shuffle groove, Simon Carter's retro keyboard elements, and Tony Remy's echoing vocorder. "Mind the Gap" is all wah-wah and thumping disco beat energy, with Shilts' horn dancing atop the house vibe. Shilts doubles on feisty alto and tenor over a "Superstition"-like keyboard groove on "There's No Wonder," then rolls over a jumpy tropical percussion groove on "Short Island Ice Tea." Shilts is firmly grounded in the present, but he's also honest about his love for classic blues and soul, infusing the blues-drenched "The Word Is Out" and brassy "Stax of Sax" with a total '60s soul sensibility. "Tequila Frenzy" then takes this out to an even further extreme. Rare is the sax recording that features no meltdown ballads, but it's clear that Shilts just wants to keep the party rolling relentlessly. With apologies to Prince and Rick James, it just doesn't get any funkier than this. ~ Jonathan Widran, Rovi All Music Guide

Eric Clapton 'Crossroads Guitar Festival 2010' Rhino #jazz

The latest in a series of festivals created, in part, to gather funds to subsidize the rehab center guitarist Eric Clapton founded in 2004, Crossroads 2010 may not have had the longest roster or the most varied list of participants, but most of the performers who appeared are presented to maximum effect in this package .

The setlist, as featured in order on the two DVDs, is creatively composed to allow for the juxtaposition of Sonny Landreth's idiosyncratic slide work just moments removed from the exquisite technique of British folk artist Bert Jansch, who in turn gives way to the equally understated Earl Kugh. Those two folk and jazz oriented players are in stark contrast to the rough and ready approach of ZZ Top, whose dirty boogie helps the group transcend the caricature that afflicted it at the height of its commercial popularity.

Then there is Jeff Beck and his primal but polished jazz-rock fusion, so expertly and (seemingly) spontaneously rendered it gives the lie to the leader's casual manner. Clapton's playing during the course of the show varies in both ingenuity and intensity. Given his admiration for Landreth,and the blues-derived likes of “Promise Land,” it may only stand to reason Clapton plays with a raw intensity matching his guest there. A similar dynamic arises when Clapton shares the stage with Beck as they play “Shake Your Moneymaker,” but to lesser extent: Clapton seems to be more than willing to defer to the other ex-member of The Yardbirds both as a gesture of respect and also because he knows he literally can't outplay him.

The appropriately rousing finale, sharing the stage with kindred spirit Steve Winwood, finds Clapton in a role perhaps more comfortable for him than fronting his own band alone, at least judging from the surprisingly tentative playing contained on “I Shot the Sheriff” and slightly less so on Robert Johnson's “Crossroads,.” Allowing the former leader of Traffic to sing as well as play guitar and keyboards frees Clapton to channel all his intensity into his guitar playing, and nowhere else this day does he sound more passionate and inspired than on Blind Faith's “Had to Cry Today” and Jimi Hendrix' “Voodoo Chile” (the original recording of which found Winwood on Hammond organ with the late guitar icon).

The insertion of spoken word and interview segments such as those with bluesmasters Hubert Sumlin and Buddy Guy, as well as the younger generation including Derek Trucks, Gov't Mule/Allman Brother Warren Haynes and Los Lobos' David Hidalgo, actually supports the pacing of the DVD. That said, it might have been worthwhile to include more extended conversations with the likes of those players and others as bonus features to this set (or perhaps given the technology at hand, providing access to such segments as they appear in abbreviated form in the liner sequence of the program).

With cameras roaming around Toyota Park's audience, the stage and behind it, it becomes simple to feel immersed in the experience as it happened that hot summer day in June 2010, especially as the sound quality of the recoding is as clear, clean and full as the video. But to fully appreciate as a bonafide resource, a complete list of personnel who played that day would aid those simply curious as well as those who want to pursue an interest in a newly (re)discovered artist.

There are, however, some inclusions on the artist roster that, while understandable, don't nurture the momentum of the show as it progresses. As Clapton's second guitarist for some years, it makes sense to see Doyle Bramhall II and his band, but he's simply not arresting to watch or listen to. Citizen Cope's abbreviated performance, obviously designed to appeal to a demographic younger than Clapton's (and most of the lineup) is lethargic and lacking direction even with Clapton beside him. And, likewise, Sheryl Crow's appearances, by herself and during her other sit-ins, adds marquee value in excess of musical memorability.

In fact, Crow pales in comparison to Susan Tedeschi fronting her band with Trucks, an act getting some deserved exposure not to mention a humorous and heartfelt introduction from emcee of the day, Bill Murray. It is is one of the most honest presentations of the day and not just because, as relatively unknown as they are, they have no hits with which to please the crowd: “Midnight in Harlem” is an exquisite piece of playing and singing pure and simple. Haynes' solo performance of his signature song, “Soulshine,” no doubt cements an impression of him with an audience otherwise not wholly cognizant of his membership in The Allman Brothers Band (which was scheduled to appear here but cancelled due to Gregg Allman's liver transplant). But he's better represented as he adds guitar and vocals to the Delaney & Bonnie tune Eric Clapton recorded with them, “Comin' Home.”

A rough cut of some of this same footage circulated in theatres this past summer, but left out performances of some artists, such as Los Lobos' Cesar Rosas and David Hidalgo on a smoldering expedition through The Allman Brothers Band's “Don't Keep Me Wondering” (with Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes) that, in the context of this double DVD, reaffirms Eric Clapton's serious intent to showcase the art of the guitar and his own devotion to the blues.
