Bob Dylan und Johnny Cash in Nashville

Bob Dylan und Johnny Cash in Nashville

Bob Dylan und seine Plattenaufnahmen im Nashville der 60er Jahre stehen im Mittelpunkt einer neuen großen Ausstellung ebenfalls in der „Music City“, die noch bis Ende 2016 läuft. Es geht auch um Dylans Studioband Nashville Cats und die Zusammenarbeit beider mit Johnny Cash. 

Die Ausstellung Dylan, Cash And The Nashville Cats: A New Music City in der Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum beleuchtet den großen Einfluss Nashvilles auf Bob Dylan seit 1965 und 1966, als er dort das Doppel-Album Blonde on Blonde mit der Studiomusiker-Formation The Nashville Cats aufnahm. Auch geht es um die Zusammenarbeit Dylans mit Johnny Cash und um dessen legendäre The Johnny Cash Show von 1969 bis 1971 im ABC-Fernseh-Network.

Die Ausstellung untersucht zudem weitere Einspielungen der Nashville Cats aus der Epoche mit Musiklegenden wie Joan Baez, J.J. Cale, The Byrds, Leonard Cohen, Paul McCartney, Linda Ronstadt, Simon & Garfunkel und Neil Young. Diese Aufnahmen leiteten in den 1960er- und 70er-Jahren einen Wandel ein: War Nashville vorher nur die Hauptstadt der Country Music, öffnete sich die Stadt seitdem auch anderen Musikstilen. Mit Folk, Rock und Pop wurde Nashville so zur heutigen „Music City“. Was für den Film Hollywood, ist für die Musik Nashville.

Zu den Perlen der Ausstellung zählen Musikinstrumente und Kostüme, das handgeschriebene Manuskript des Songs Wanted Man von Bob Dylan, den Cash im Jahr 1969 für sein Album Johnny Cash at San Quentin aufnahm, sowie Clips der Johnny Cash Show. Der Eintritt zur Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum, der die Sonderausstellung mit umfasst, kostet 24,95 Dollar. Kinder von 6 bis 12 Jahren zahlen 14,95 Dollar. Das Museum ist täglich von 9.00 bis 17.00 Uhr geöffnet.

Back to the Roots …

Back to the Roots …

hieß es am 6. Februar im Headquarter der Vienna Globetrampers in Wien. Es gab wieder eine Premiere, diesmal mit dem Trio MOCKINGBIRDS. Leider hat diese Band keine Website.

Bandleader Peter Trenkler (Ak. Git., Voc., Banjo, Kazoo) kenne ich noch aus der Zeit als er vor ca. 25 Jahren mit Ray Bamboschek (Dobro) als Duo schon unter diesem Namen auftrat. Nach Ray’s Unfall startete er mit Martin (E-Baß) im Jahr 2000 neu durch. Der dritte Mann im Bunde heißt Hans (Fiddle, Banjo, Trommel)) und begleitet das Duo fallweise. Sowohl Peter als auch Hans sind außerdem in einer klassischen Musikgruppe aktiv.

Wie meine Überschrift schon verrät bestand ihr Programm aus lauter altbekannten Titeln der Genres Country, Bluegrass, Blues, Folk. Das Repertoire reichte zurück bis 1890 (Wabash Cannonball), 1905 (Nobody / Hank Williams), 1930 (Mule Skinner Blues / Jimmie Rodgers), 1937 (Home on the range / Gene Autry), um nur einiges zu nennen. Besonders gut gefiel mir >Wheeping willow tree< (Carter Family), >Irene good night< (Gordon Jenkins), >Wayside tavern< (Peter Rowan) und >Mr. Bojangles< (J.J.Walker).

Natürlich durfte auch Johnny Cash nicht fehlen – diese Songs liegen Peter besonders gut – und davon u. a. der >Hef'n Blues< (1955) mit sehr gutem deutschen Text. Noch zwei deutschsprachige Ausflüge gingen zu Ostbahn Kurti (Ka Idee) und Hermann Leopoldi (Schnucki, ach Schnucki). Letzteres wurde sehr bekannt durch die >Worried Men Skiffle Group<, die es nach mehr als 50jährigem musikalischem Wirken aus gesundheitlichen Gründen leider nicht mehr gibt.

Als Zugabe hörten wir >When the circle be unbroken<. Es befremdet mich immer wieder, wenn bei diesem traurigen Lied Menschen mitklatschen und tanzen, das passt eigentlich nicht und ich nehme mal an, dass diese den Text nicht verstehen. Trotzdem war es ein sehr netter Abend der viele Erinnerungen wach rief.

SOUTHERN FLAVOR …..

SOUTHERN FLAVOR …..

.. so heißt ein Song und das 18. Album von Bill Monroe. Doch jetzt trägt diesen Namen auch ein neues Trio aus Wien/NÖ das im März 2014 gegründet wurde (www.southern-flavor.at).

Aktuelle Mitglieder sind:
Herbert Schicht (Akkordeon, Banjo)
Barbara Maresch (E-Baß, Gesang)
Richard Hafner (Gitarre, Mandoline, Gesang)

Am 6. März hatte ich das Vergnügen, ihre Premiere im Headquarter der Vienna Globetrampers zu erleben. Der Bandname spricht bereits für sich, denn gespielt wird ausschließlich mit akustischen Instrumenten in den Stilrichtungen Old Time Country, Bluegrass, Cajun und auch Modern Country. Z. B.: >Highway Headin South<, >Drivin Nails in My Coffin<, >Wagon Wheel<, >Glory Of Love<, >Midnight Boat To Erin<, und vieles mehr. Und das alles sehr temperamentvoll, mit sehr gutem und harmonischen Zusammenspiel.

Das Publikum war begeistert und so ergab sich nach der Vorstellung eine spontane Session mit dem Musiker Christian aus Salzburg ------ höflich aber bestimmt wurden wir dann um 1:30 h (!!!) hinausgebeten.

Ich glaube, von diesem Trio wird man künftig öfter hören.

DON WILLIAMS ANNOUNCES 2015 SPRING AND FALL TOUR

DON WILLIAMS ANNOUNCES 2015 SPRING AND FALL TOUR

Icon Continues To Deliver Hits To Fans
 
Nashville, Tenn. (March 27, 2015) – With his easy-going style and laid back nature, Don Williams has become one of Country Music’s most-beloved performers both in the United States, as well as abroad. Williams announces the Spring and Fall legs of his 2015 tour, bringing his hits to fans old and new.

“Mercy, the fans have kept us going for years, and I am glad to share the music with them once again,” says Williams.

Williams first came to prominence in the 1960s as a member of the folk group The Pozo-Seco Singers. The trio recorded several hit records, with the biggest being “Time.” By 1971, Williams had gone solo, and had signed a publishing deal with Jack Clement. The Hall of Fame producer was so taken with Don’s style that he offered him a recording contract with his JMI Records in 1972. Early hits included “Atta Way To Go” and “Come Early Morning,” as well as “We Should Be Together,” which became his first Billboard top ten hit from 1974. He then moved to ABC / Dot (Later MCA), where the hits increased. Tracks such as “Rake and Ramblin’ Man,” “Tulsa Time,” and “Nobody But You” helped to make him one of the most-played artists on Country Radio in the 1970s and 1980s. He took home the Male Vocalist of the Year trophy from the Country Music Association in 1978, and notched his biggest hit in 1981 with “I Believe In You,” which also crossed over to the top-30 on the Hot 100.

Subsequent moves to Capitol Nashville and RCA kept Williams on the charts into the 1990s, as he continued to play for huge crowds on the road. His success in the United States is well-documented, but the music of Don Williams has made him an international star – with followings in such places as England and New Zealand. He has placed 52 singles in the top-40 on the Country charts in the United States, with 17 going all the way to the top spot. Williams was a member of the Grand Ole Opry in the 1980s, and appeared in the films W.W. and the Dixie Dancekings and Smokey & The Bandit II with Burt Reynolds.

Williams’ most recent album was 2014’s Reflections, which earned the singer his highest peak on the Country Album chart in three decades. Known as “The Gentle Giant,” Williams was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2010.

JIM ED BROWN and THE BROWNS NEWEST MEMBERS OF THE COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME

JIM ED BROWN and THE BROWNS TO BECOME THE NEWEST MEMBERS OF THE COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME

NASHVILLE, TN ( March 27,2015) - This week, the Country Music Association announced that Jim Ed Brown and The Browns will become the newest members of the revered Country Music Hall of Fame in the "Veterans Era Artist" category and the excitement continues to build!!  Jim Ed Brown and The Browns (siblings Maxine and Bonnie) will be stopping by the SiriusXM studios to appear on Willie's Roadhouse with Charlie Monk this Sunday, March 29th at 8 pm (ET) and re-air on Tuesday, March 31st at 11 am (ET). In addition, Jim Ed Brown will bring The Browns to the Grand Ole Opry during his appearances this weekend. 

"This is all very overwhelming not just for me, but for the Brown family" said Jim Ed Brown. "Receiving this honor with my sisters, Maxine and Bonnie, is something I had dreamed about for years, but never knew if it would happen or not. Fame is fleeting, hit records change every week, award show winners and nominees change every year, but being inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame will be forever!"

CMA created the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1961 to recognize noteworthy individuals for their outstanding contributions to the format with Country Music's highest honor.

About Jim Ed Brown and The Browns:
Jim Ed Brown and his family trio The Browns helped define an era while also taking Country Music to wider, more cosmopolitan audiences. Their smooth three-part harmonies, centered around Jim Ed's rich baritone complemented by Maxine's alto and Bonnie's breathy soprano, lifted the soul and cut across genre lines to bring a more sophisticated sound to Country Music.

Perhaps the most important vocal group of the Nashville Sound era, The Browns' harmonies were among the most influential of the time, immediately influencing groups like the Beatles and the Osborne Brothers. And the trio's take on what Country Music can aspire to be can still be felt decades later in the music of modern vocal groups like Lady Antebellum and Little Big Town.

Jim Ed (born April 1, 1934 in Sparkman, Ark.), Maxine (born April 27, 1931 in Campti, La.) and Bonnie (July 31, 1937 in Sparkman, Ark.) got their start performing at church and social functions as teenagers in Southwestern Arkansas.

Maxine signed up Jim Ed for a talent contest on Little Rock radio station KLRA's "Barnyard Frolic." Brown didn't win, but he was invited to join the cast. Maxine eventually joined him on a stage and the two found quick success as a duo, landing a spot on the popular and influential "Louisiana Hayride" in 1954 and recording "Looking Back to See," a surprise hit that rose to No. 8 on Billboard's Country chart.

Bonnie filled out the trio by joining formally in 1955 and The Browns quickly scored another hit with "Here Today and Gone Tomorrow." It was an exciting time for the siblings, as chronicled in Maxine's autobiography Looking Back to See and famed author Rick Bass' fictionalized account of their lives, Nashville Chrome. They found themselves on the road with good friend Elvis Presley early in their career and helped establish Nashville as Music City, USA, along with acts like Presley and the Everly Brothers. Together they all pushed the boundaries of popular music.

They signed with RCA Records in 1955, teaming with legendary producer Chet Atkins, and eventually recorded 250 sides with the label, including sizeable hits "I Take the Chance" and "I Heard the Bluebirds Sing." They toured the U.S. relentlessly during this period and also went to Europe with fellow RCA acts.

The Browns reached new levels of popularity with the recording of 1959's "The Three Bells," a song originally performed by Edith Piaf in France. The song displayed The Browns' willingness to explore folk and pop modes in their music and the public responded, making it No. 1 on the pop and Country charts. It even rose to No. 10 on the R&B charts, showing its universal appeal.

The song and subsequent hits like "The Old Lamplighter" also proved widely popular and led the group to huge television appearance opportunities including "The Ed Sullivan Show," "American Bandstand," and "The Perry Como Show."

After initial friction because of their pop leanings, The Browns joined the Grand Ole Opry in 1963. The trio, which was occasionally augmented by younger sister Norma, formally disbanded in 1967 when Maxine and Bonnie chose to retire to raise their young families.

The Browns have made occasional appearances over the years, recording a reunion album in the mid-1980s and appearing on the Opry. Jim Ed, meanwhile, remains a beloved figure in Nashville. He continued his solo career after the trio separated, scoring Top 10 hits like signature songs "Pop a Top," "Morning," "Southern Living," "Sometime Sunshine," and "It's That Time of Night."

Jim Ed Brown managed to recapture the magic of boy-girl harmony again in 1976 when he began recording duets with Helen Cornelius. They were named the CMA Vocal Duo of the Year in 1977 and recorded memorable hits like "I Don't Want to Have to Marry You," which went to No. 1; "Saying Hello, Saying I Love You, Saying Goodbye"; "Lying In Love With You"; "Fools"; and "Morning Comes Too Early."

Brown hosted a number of television shows in the 1980s, including the contest show "You Can Be a Star," and has remained a notable figure in Nashville, occasionally appearing on the Opry and hosting "Country Music Greats Radio Show" for more than a decade.
