BOB DYLAN - The Sculpturer

Bob Dylan - Rome 7/9/23

“Gorgeous renditions of old tracks such as Gotta Serve Somebody

and I´ll Be Your Baby Tonight just give a break through the

musical journey and rough poetry of the new songs.

When I Paint My Masterpiece

is again sung in Rome the exact place where it was imagined.

It starts in the known way and it finishes like a waltz.

 

Surprise track of the evening: Only A River by Bob Weir.

Maybe there´s a river theme on this tour

(this song, Crossing The Rubicon, Watching The River Flows

 opening track, and the other song recently picked in the Dead basket: Brokedown Palace).

 

Then, of course, TRUCKIN´! The ghost of Jerry Garcia

seemed to hang over the stage. What a stunning and powerful singing and playing.

The lyrics suits perfect for a travelin´ band in a 3 years World Wide Tour:

Sometimes the lights are shining on me,

Other times I can barely see!

Bob sings the fast verses without even a doubt. Perfect shape for a stage!

19 songs set and never a shadow of boredom.

CALIFORNIA TYPEWRITER

by Uncle John

I saw this documentary, “California Typewriter”. There´s an excellent segment with musician John Mayer that clicks with me. John Mayer eloquently shares with us that it´s not the same trying to write on a computer.  John Mayer explains this about his songs, how he has many hard drives with his lyrics and work, and yet he´s never going to go back and look at that. Something typed comes from a different mind process, the song flowing from the typing. You can hold it, touch it, see it, roll and scroll it.

 

I corresponded with the Grateful Dead office in California. I went to the Lincoln Avenue office in San Rafael and Annette invites me in and has me sit at a desk in an office by myself to wait for a phone call from a band member. The whole place is like a musical wonderland of ideas. What I notice in this room is the Selectric typewriter and its balls of different fonts. When I was in New York, I wrote to the Office asking for the lyrics to about eight of the Grateful Dead songs. They mailed them to me, typed, with a script font from an IBM Selectric typewriter. One of those songs is “Scarlet Begonias” and I´m thinking of this song singing to myself:

Once in a while, you get shown the light
in the strangest of places if you look at it right

Look at it write, look at it write

John Mayer shares a clip with us from the documentary “Don´t Look Back” that shows Bob Dylan playing the typewriter typing. It´s just like another musical instrument for him, like the guitar and harmonica, John Mayer shares. He is in his own world. I see Bob Dylan writing a song tapping the keyboards on the typewriter and the keys he´s tapping are dancing to his words.  

John Mayer was inspired to buy a typewriter to see what it´s all about.

"I realize the reason that I was able to come alive on a typewriter where I wasn´t using a computer, or even a pen,  was that you´re at sort of a safe distance where you can express yourself openly without  having to edit yourself at the same time.   And so it became sort of like a confessional for me where I would sit and just type, and the reason I was able to go deeper into an idea was because I wasn´t stopped anywhere in that writing by a red squiggly line. And what is spell check or grammar check if all you´re really try to do is sort of dig into this sort of mercurial sort of world of what your ideas are."

John Mayer is holding a stack of typed lyrics. "If these were in Microsoft Word I´d never see these again, all these typed out lyrics,  some of which made the records, most of which didn´t. " He sings "Queen of California" as we watch him read the typed pages. "It´s almost what thoughts look like."

Bob Dylan performs “Truckin´” first time live

 @ Tokyo Garden Theater

April 12, 2023

Review by D. and Mademoiselle Lili

“And then it happened... Something didn't seem right. At first

we thought it was a new version of "Jimmy Reed" but then we heard the word

"truckin'"... Sporadic roars from around the audience (jumping from Dead

heads), we wanted to rush the stage- the reaction would have been bigger

but it is so difficult to express oneself in this venue.

But this was special, so special, Really special. Bob was loving

it, the band were loving it. He sang like a 20 year old do dah man, giving

it everything, every word was clear, next level stuff. As the song

finished Tony punched the air in delight - smiles all round.

And then it was over - from Truckin' to Mother of Muses - like nothing had

happened. This is the rough and rowdy tour and don't forget it - a great show.

What a long strange happy night it's been!”

WHITE RABBIT LIVE

CLARE MALONEY

Dream Within A Dream

by Uncle John

Sunday, March 19 is the 100th show Phil Lesh has played at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York.

 

Clare Maloney & The Great Adventure is playing a Phil Lesh & Friends pre-show next door at Garcia´s, and all concert ticket holders get free admission to this show.

 

I spoke with Clare after a show with The Airplane Family at The Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley, California. Her talent is astounding as a musician playing guitar in a band, and a premier vocalist with deep operatic training, and her golden voice is present through songs that move the spirit.

 

A touch of Hot Tuna, “Hesitation Blues” helps me understand what is going on. Her vocals on “Blows Against The Empire” are deep and mesmerizing. “Paul Kantner and David Crosby are here tonight very strong in the spirit.” I tell her, and she agrees with me, smiling. I share that I met Paul Kantner at an acupuncture clinic with Dr. Ron in San Francisco.

 

Her rendition of “Sunrise” is pitch perfect.

Clare Maloney was an international opera star before she became a rocker.

During the pandemic, Clare wrote over a hundred songs and it reminds me of the time Robert Hunter went on the road with The Grateful Dead and wrote a song with a hundred verses, “Truckin´”. The Grateful Dead recorded the first five verses.

I tell Clare that Jerry Garcia is here tonight. “Yes, he is!” she says.

 

Clare Maloney & The Great Adventure have a new album out called “DAYBREAKER”. Check out “Legend Lives On” and “Dream Within A Dream” and “Song To The Moon”.

 

I tell her that she sounds just like Grace Slick. She personifies, amplifies and emanates her vocally. “White Rabbit” is maravilloso.

"Inspector Rabbit" by artist Grace Slick.

Clare reminds me of Grace the musician, yet she has her own style. This girl knows how to rock on!

I'm sitting at a table directly across from Paul Kantner of the Jefferson Starship  & Jefferson Airplane. He's reading the Chronicle and I'm playing one of the puzzle mazes. Paul's profile is facing me and he looks just like I do with pins sticking out of our ears. We are at Dr. Ron´s acupuncture clinic and I engage Paul´s attention and bring up my musical science fiction play, "RAINDANCE". In the play, extraterrestrial time travelers, seven sirens, intercept the Voyager 1 and capture the Golden Record and listen to it, including Chuck Berry's song Johnny B. Goode, and when they arrive on Earth they become seven gypsy dancing women who sing to Bobby "Sugarfree" Sugaree, and in one voice tell him "Take us to your leader Johnny B. Goode". Paul Kantner and I talk about Jerry Garcia's love for science fiction, Blows Against The Empire, and Sirens Of Titan.

"She come skimming through rays of violet She can wade in a drop of dew She don't come and I don't follow Waits backstage while I sing to you"

 

Venerable rock and blues guitarist Joe Patenaude released (2022) SNAPFINGER, an album dedicated to original instrumentals, offering a creative landscape of lush guitar compositions, spiced with a few rockin’ blues tunes—Patenaude records and plays on guitars, bass, piano, organ and several vocal numbers, and its mastered by Steve Johnson of Big Blue Studios in Astoria, Oregon. A departure from years of rock, blues and pyschedelia, yet drawing from all, Patenaude musically paints with programmatic themes, musical memories and using his snap fingers, as he refers to, that have been playing the guitars for over 50 years.

View here: David Letterman & Jerry Garcia play Scrabble

The first time I am backstage with the Jerry Garcia Band, I’m sitting at the main round table listening to Jerry Garcia carry on a half dozen lively conversations at the same time. He is astutely following each one and contributes brilliant observations, upbeat, with a good deal of laughter. I finally capture his attention with my eyes and interject a question, "Have you seen the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind?" I ask him, not realizing he had a cameo in the film. He immediately replies, "Im not answering anymore questions until we find out who you are." There is suddenly silence in the room. And I introduce myself as

"Uncle John"  

"That improves things considerably,"

Jerry Garcia responds, lifting his eyebrows with a twinkle, and smiles,  and the banter in the room resumes.
