Blooming heck, would love to see Fernando Pérez live. I don't know which hand to watch! But aside from his obvious technical brilliance his playing is so musical and full of expression. The use of pinches, open strings and Kora like runs with the drop thumb and index, not to mention all the subtle push thumbs...just astounding and so clever.
I think he's mainly playing out of vestapol but if anyone knows better I'd love to know more. The first two tracks are lovely but from track 3 onwards it really starts to get serious. Well worth a watch all.
Such a brilliant record. Loved it when it was released in 1974 and still do. Hamish Stuart and friends...
- Completely agree (although, my attention in '74 was more focussed on rusks and milk). I love the unmistakable groove of this track. That amazing sax solo and key change shake the whole sound up and really give it a lift. Funk royalty.
Last Sunday Charlie Parr came through town. It was a great show at a beautiful venue called the armory (built in 1907). Here is a clip I got of Charlie playing 1922 Blues that night. As always, he plays a long show, he’s humble, funny and has time for who ever wants to talk after the show.
