“Pempelem… pelem-pem-pem!” So sang Azie Lawrence to kick off a set that careened from The Melodians to Chris Farlowe & the Thunderbirds (as “The Beazers”) to Colonel Elliott & the Lunatics and of course included The Skatalites, making for hoppy-skippy-jumpy diversity that had us doing all three. And when we reached Sherwood’s Planet… well, who but Sherwood spins Emerson Lake & Palmerand the Dave Brubeck Octet back-to-back_ and the Bru’s spoken-word meditation on “How High the Moon” at that? The ELP cut was “Tank”, by the way… Yukari Ito took us into the Home Stretch with another of our three ’60s Japanese “Lollipops”, Mutant Frogs took over the 5(+1)@5:05 with a set of some of Sherwood’s bumpers, David Lindley’s take on “Werewolves of London” served to remind us all of his soon-to-be May 22 appearance at Cedar Cultural Center, and we belatedly sent Maggie Thatcher off to the Great Beyond with a certain English Beat song. Phoenix City All Stars added to its cover of “The Selecter” the tune’s original title “Kingston Affair”, and with that, we remind you to Tune In… and Stay Tuned.
Finally, we have laurels to rest on. There is nothing especially notable about this show. No crazy trainwrecks. No coughing fits. Just a bunch of solid tunes and talkin' dudes.
Cassettes from Somalia and Ethiopia, vinyl from Record Store Day, and lots of other music from all over the continent and beyond including Brazil and Jamaica on today's African Rhythms.
