CD Review: LUANNE HUNT - The Heart Of It All / Songs From The Valley

LUANNE HUNT
The Heart Of It All / Songs From The Valley
Texas Tears - All I Ask Of You - It's Only A Paper Moon - Darcy  Farrow - So It Goes / Bluer Than Bluegrass - A Song For Healing - The Hosts of Christmas Past - If I Love You - Not A Day Goes By - The Last Of The Brave Ones - The Wandering Soul

Right now as I review this album by Luanne Hunt, I'm in California appreciating the rain.  Luanne Hunt is also from California, and I would suspect she's one of the best 'country' artists in this state.  The first song out of the chute, at least if you are a cowboy is, "Texas Tears," a super neat Texas style honky-tonk song that really stands out.  Luanne is one of those beautiful blondes that has a magnificent voice to go along with her obviously strong desire to be a terrific recording artist.  And that she is.  This album is studio recorded with some fine musicians, they all stand out proficiently, though I have no info on who they are or what they play.  I especially enjoyed the piano player on "It's Only A Paper Moon."  Listen for some really good 'fiddle' on "Darcy Farrow"  super good., and the acoustic picker really sets the song off.  It's Luanne's very nice folk-country voice that brings the song to it's fullest appreciation.  We hear some more great fiddle music in "Bluer Than Bluegrass" and again on "If I Love You" very effectively.  "Bluer Than Bluegrass" is not bluegrass backing, but it sure is a nice traditional country song done really well.  Luanne has made the trip back east to visit us in the heartlands for CD of the Year awards.  I'll have no difficulty forwarding this very entertaining CD to the Rural Roots Music Commission, the 'country' sound on this one is truly a lovely one to listen to.  Luanne closes the album with either pan-pipes or a recorder flute, absolutely lovely on "The Wandering Soul."  Back up vocalists on this one is especially well done.  I don't know who all the musicians are, but Luanne has a great ear for a good player, and she is also very perceptive, especially if she is in the engineers booth when the mixing is done.  She knows what she wants to hear, and she looks for the 'little' things, and makes them all better.  A lot of recording artists let this be done entirely by someone else, but I firmly believe that Luanne sees the project through all the way.  Good going Luanne.

CD Review: ALEX SMITH - Close To Home

ALEX SMITH
Close To Home
I don't even have the song list on this brand new CD by Alex Smith.  It's so new I don't even have the jacket to tell you who the magnificent musicians that are appearing on this wonderful, very poignant presentation of original music.  Many of you know Alex, originally from Maine, now living in the state of Vermont, is an incredible writer about the deepest of human feelings and emotions.  One title, I'm pretty sure, is "Stay With Me Now" or very close to that.  It's a song about past life, looking at the past, atoning, and dreaming of redemption, predicting the future in a personal relationship.  Alex's baritone voice is very expressive and tremendously meaningful in his interpretation of his own artistic work.  There's some incredibly beautiful guitar work on song #3, which is obviously the title track "Close To Home."  This land is your land is as meaningful to Alex as it was to Woody Guthrie, but also expect to hear some delightful guitar picking on this song, both acoustic and electric.  I'm a great fan of Alex Smith.  He's first and foremost a 'songwriter' with the voice to make it all plausible, understandable, and listenable.  Track #4 has a really nice tempo change that emphasizes understanding.  I'd like to be able to tell you who these musicians are that provide such interesting backing, but no information at this time.  Pretty sure it's Alex on rhythm guitar.  Please also remember, Alex Smith uses the old, very successful 'story telling' element in his writing.  It was nearly mandatory in early country to have a story behind the song.  Alex uses this technique really well.  Oh how I wish modern country music could somehow recover that lost art.  Alex is probably best described as a 'folk' singer utilizing some of the early ingredients that made rural music popular in the first place, but today is a 'bought and paid for' commodity.  That's very sad.  There is a tremendous amount of incredibly gifted music and music makers in America today that will go unheard to the masses simply because of the collapse of fair-play in the music marketplace.  We get an overdose of performers like Gaga and Madonna, all preaching how they are playing to the popular music crowd, but are they, really?  And WHY is so much of America's beautiful music from it's still surviving rural areas so overlooked, deliberately or otherwise?  Well, now you know, you can still find it with Alex Smith.

Grandioser Start ins Jubiläumsjahr der Country & Western Friends Kötz

Grandioser Start ins Jubiläumsjahr der Country & Western Friends Kötz
Als Peter „PeeWee“ Wroblewski vor 35 Jahren einen „Steckbrief“ beim ersten Country-Feschtle in der Fischerhütte in Großkötz an die Wand pinnte, konnte er damals nicht ahnen, was sich daraus entwickeln würde. Mit seinem Enthusiasmus für die Country Music ist vom kleinen „verrückten, verschworenen Haufen“ wurde über die Jahre einer der renommiertesten und bekanntesten Vereine für traditionelle Country Music – selbst über Deutschlands Grenzen hinaus. Mit unzähligen Konzerten und Veranstaltungen mit regionalen Bands bis hin zu international bekannten Stars und Legenden der Country & Bluegrass Music Szene. Am 10. Februar konnte der Verein mit einem weiteren Konzerthighlight ins 35. Vereinsjahr starten.

John Arthur Martinez & Tejas begeistern Fans aus nah und fern
Schon 2006 spielte die beliebte Country- und Tex-Mex-Band in der Gegend und hinterließ einen so guten Eindruck, dass auch viele Jahre später der Saal des Schützenhauses Leipheim voll wurde: Fans aus ganz Süddeutschland, Duisburg, Kassel, Frankfurt und der Schweiz, versammelten sich und sorgten so für einen hoffnungsvollen Start ins Jubiläumsjahr „35“ und die neue Saison der Country & Western Friends Kötz. John Arthur Martinez stammt aus Austin, Texas, wo die Musik noch urwüchsig und unangekränkelt vom kommerziellen Nashville-Sound von heute gepflegt wird. Hier mischen sich also Elemente klassischer texanischer Country Music mit mexikanischen Klängen, manchmal ging es auch lautstark, aber immer kontrolliert, in Richtung Rock n‘ Roll, und das ergibt eine unwiderstehliche Mischung voller Energie und Lebenslust.
Martinez war die bühnenbeherrschende Person, er sang die meisten Lieder, gern im Duett oder Trio mit seinen Musikern, er ließ ihnen aber auch kollegial die Möglichkeit, sich ab und zu als Gesangssolist hervorzutun. Namentlich waren dies Gitarrist Chris Reeves mit seiner Gitarre, auf der er mit perlenden Läufen spanisch-mexikanisches Flair herzauberte, E-Bassist B.B. Morse mit virtuosem Spiel und engagiertem Gesang und der aus Italien stammende Schlagzeuger Stefano Bertolotti, der den nötigen Druck erzeugte, ohne den Rest der Musik zu erschlagen. Das war genau auch die Besetzung von 2006. Martinez spielte Gitarre, machte auch lockere Ansagen und erläuterte die Lieder in gebotener Ausführlichkeit, schnell knüpfte er Kontakt mit dem Publikum, wo sich Bekannte und Fans von früheren Konzerten befanden. Er gönnte auch seinem Drummer eine kleine Pause und setzte sich selbst ans Schlagzeug. Die Mehrzahl der Lieder hat Martinez selbst geschrieben, dazu kamen einige Standards und Evergreens aus den Bereichen Cowboy Songs, Western Swing und Rockabilly – das Publikum freut sich über vertrautes Material in Grenzen. Eine große Auswahl an CDs hatte er mitgebracht und die verkauften sich gut. Drei lange Sets vergingen wie im Flug, die Besucher lauschten andächtig oder tanzten losgelöst zu Evergreens wie „Don't be cruel“ oder „La Bamba“. Langweilig wurde es bei diesem wunderbaren Gastspiel keinem. Insgesamt war das Konzert ein gutes Omen für die kommende Saison bei so viel Besuchern dürfte die Kasse stimmen, und für musikalische Qualität sind die Country Friends eine unbestrittene Garantie.
Die nächste Veranstaltung der Country & Western Friends Koetz 1982 in Zusammenarbeit mit der Volkshochschule Ehingen steigt am 25. März um 19 Uhr in der Lindenhalle Ehingen: das 21. Bluegrass- und Country-Festival mit New West (A), Rawhide (B) und den Henry Girls (Irl). Eberhard Finke
