Jam Session

London Jam Session

Last night we gathered at Hugo’s for another fantastic evening of music, the third in our series of acoustic sessions. This time we took over the main room and were a little less unplugged than usual with the red light of a vintage Fender amp shining brightly from the stage! 

 

Hugh Burns led the session with his out-of-this-world-guitar playing and the lineup included a few new faces and instruments, among which were a few more guitars, harmonicas, trumpet and vocals. 

 Jamming

The repertoire bounced back and forth between between jazz standards like Satin Doll, Blue Bossa and Autumn Leaves, some Joni Mitchell, Eagles and Van Morrison and bluegrass tunes like John Whiskey Before Breakfast, all rounded off by a free flowing blues jam as an encore. 

 

The audience was enthusiastic enough to ask us to make our sessions into a regular event they can put in their diaries so watch this space for details! Thank you to Terry Relph-Knight for the photos.

Riff Of The Week 6

Riff Of The Week 6

Jonathan Wilson – Desert Raven

From collaborations with Tom Morello, Crosby, Stills and Nash and The Doobie Brothers, its obvious that Jonathan Wilson can hold his own on a guitar. Originating in North Carolina, Wilson’s music is the sweet spot between Folk and Psychedlic, and perhaps that is most evident on the track ‘Desert Raven’.

Riff Of The Week 6

Riff Of The Week 6

The clean and washy rhythmic feel of the acoustic guitar feels directly inspired by something from post- Beatles Harrion, whilst the down winding of the harmonized electric guitar is David Gilmour-esque at its best. A perfect tune for a road trip, that in itself is a sonic journey.

It seems Jonathan Wilson has managed to create an opus to guitar heroes – hold on tight, this is 7 minutes of wonder.

Kool Thing – Sonic Youth

Influential and an absolute must if you are sitting around discussing 90’s grunge guitar with friends. Sonic Youth were dirty and vicious with there guitar playing, often touching upon dissonance and textures previously undiscovered. Renknown for experimenting with unsual tunings and modified guitars, amplifiers and effects units – Sonic Youth took the idea of noise somewhere new with each release.

This brings us to ‘Kool Thing’ a quintessential 90’s grunge track,

Riff Of The Week 5

Riff Of The Week 5

Paperhouse – Can

Can were unprecedented, a product of post second world war Germany, where the youth felt it necessary to distance themselves as far as possible from previous generations – and seemingly much like there generation in other countries, they turned to psychedelics and primiscious behaviour.

However, unlike their contemporaries from across the pond, Can had a transcendental nature to their music, songs that would reach 15 minutes in length, all free form and rhythmically repeatitive. A friend of mine once likened ‘Krautrock’ (a term given to the German rock music of this period by the British press) to being the sonic representation of driving down an endless autobahn, where the sense of all urgency is lost.

Paperhouse is a track from Can’s most accessible album ‘Tago Mago‘. Once again, it is incredibly difficult or technical guitar playing, but it exudes a rawness as it moves with vocals, it sweeps you up and pushes away throughout the song. Essentially to me, it is an ever changing landscape and easily one of my all time favourites.

Listen to it here –

Ode to Viceroy – Mac Demarco

In the age of technology, it seems as if music is getting more and more of an electronic focus. However, it is important to note that the rise in popularity of electronics, in conjuction with the drop of price in home recording equipment, is allowing us to hear music by self-produced artists we may have never heard before.

Mac De Marco is an example of this – a Canadian musician, living in Brooklyn with a couple hundred  of dollars worth of recording equipment, making an album on his own and then taking the independent music world by storm.

Riff Of The Week 5

Riff Of The Week 5

Mac has become reknown for his wobbly and unconventional twee pop guitar stylings – and in all honesty, I could of picked a multitude of songs from any of his releases to highlight this. However, to me the track ‘Ode to Viceroy’ sums it up perfectly, kooky, simple, far from perfect, yet completely complimenting the song.

Enough of my thoughts,  form your own here –
