There's something about simplicity and subtlety that sets the best songwriters apart. The simplicity in using the exact, perfect word—and only that word—to describe a feeling in a way that everyone can relate. And the subtlety of taking the listener on an emotional journey with a song that only lasts three minutes. Few artists have attained a mastery of both quite like my next guest, singer/songwriter Ben Vaughn. An exceptionally talented musician, Ben is a persistent writer; indeed, he writes almost every day. The tough part is getting it all down before it goes away. His music may remind you a bit of They Might Be Giants, a little Tom Waits mixed in with some Lou Reed. Ben's been at it since the early 80s and even scored music for television shows and movies. He's funny, witty, subtle, and unfailingly polite. We spoke from his California home about his newest album The World of Ben Vaughn, released in May 2022. Listen in as he discusses how he approaches his craft, his inspirations, and four songs from new album—Wayne Fontana Was Wrong, Blind Alley, Asking for a Friend, and New Jersey Rock and Roll. Dig in and welcome Ben Vaughn to For Songs.

 Lisa continues her conversation today with Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and iconic drummer of The Doors, John Densmore. John reads poetry and explains about the thread which runs throughout each of our lives, if we just tune into it.  This is a way of never being lost. He talks about Ram Dass and how, in the silence, people can really contemplate his deeper words. He further discusses the importance of poetry, and specifically Jim Morrison's poetry, and then reads a special poem that he read to Ram Dass, written in the 1960s by renowned poet Etheridge Knight. He further describes the essence of creativity and the gifts that musicians and artists bring to us. In this uplifting interview, he talks about his latest book, “The Seekers – Meetings with Remarkable Musicians (and Other Artists).” Inspired by mystic G.I. Gurdjieff's classic work, “Meetings with Remarkable Men,” Densmore's latest book is a collection of short vignettes of his encounters with musicians such as Patti Smith, Lou Reed, and Janice Joplin, as well as spiritual teachers like Ram Dass, the Dalai Lama, and Joseph Campbell.

How is it that some people can perform moving pieces of music, or write a thrilling manuscript, or create a deeply emotional piece of art? What is the secret to artistic genius? Today's guest is Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and iconic drummer of The Doors, John Densmore. In this uplifting interview, he talks about his latest book, “The Seekers – Meetings with Remarkable Musicians (and Other Artists).” Inspired by mystic G.I.

Each a luminary in their own right, Densmore shares stories of the creative thread that runs through each mystic, musician, and teacher as he searched for the origin of creativity and artistry. He shares several experiences he's had with LA Philharmonic conductor Gustavo Dudamel and how so much can be learned in the moments of silence between notes. The universal language of music is always a direct connection to one another's heart. This is Part 1 of the interview. Info: JohnDensmore.com

Qui a peur des histoires ? Certainement pas Rébecca Dautremer qui sait mieux que personne se les approprier quand elle illustre et réinvente les classiques de la littérature : Cyrano, Babayaga, Nasreddine, le héros malicieux du conte arabe… Soie d'Alessandro Baricco devient un autre livre, son Alice aux pays des merveilles, un hommage à la modernité de Lewis Carroll, Des Souris et des hommes de John Steinbeck, une adaptation visuelle qui fait corps avec le texte du romancier américain. S'éloignant d'une simple illustration, nourrie par une approche photographique qui lui fait appréhender cadrage, couleurs et lumière, la dessinatrice parvient à inventer son propre langage, à faire entendre sa voix sans faire oublier celle de Steinbeck. Sous les pinceaux de Rébecca Dautremer, apparaît un monde peuplé de créatures sombres et fantastiques, d'un lapin philosophe – l'inoubliable Jacominus –, de princesses oubliées ou d'une Belle au bois dormant qui s'affranchit des codes visuels habituels… Née en 1971, Rébecca Dautremer a étudié aux Arts Déco de Paris et s'est consacrée très tôt à l'illustration. Artiste prolifique (animation, théâtre, photographie…), ses ouvrages sont aujourd'hui traduits dans plus de vingt langues et lui valent une reconnaissance internationale. La gouache est sa technique de prédilection, ses originaux aux formats géants sont très prisés des collectionneurs. L'artiste prête son talent à la publicité ou aux costumes de théâtre qu'elle dessine pour les adaptations scéniques de ses albums.

Biddeford-based indie rocker Jim Baumer has released a diverse pastiche of songs on the provocatively titled Living in Some Strange Days. The songs emanate from a space of darkness and deep pain and his music hearkens back to a period of time he calls indie's “halcyon days,” in the early-to-mid-90s. Music has been Baumer's path forward after losing a son, well-known environmental activist and poet, Mark Baumer, killed in 2017. Picking up an old Yamaha acoustic he'd had around the house for 20 years, Baumer says he took it out of the case and started to play. “I've been playing it ever since.” LISSD has solo acoustic material, rooted in 70s music and artists like Arlo Guthrie, Neil Young, Big Star, and others. Then, Baumer's one-man-band electric songs” are influenced by angular indie bands like Pavement, Polvo, Silkworm, while channeling T. Rex and other influences, too, especially the grittiness of Lou Reed's solo material. A child of the 70s, Baumer grew up with music that never shied away from the topics of the day. “TNT (Acoustic Mix)” speaks to freedom and protest and is a paean to Canadian truckers, while sounding like it might have been recorded during Young's “Tonight's the Night” sessions. He performed some of the new tracks from the new release on Podcast Open Mic. Jim Baumer Musician/One-Man-Band Ph: (207)939-8057

In The Past: Garage Rock Podcast

"Foggy Notion" by The Velvet Underground is a sneaky candidate for greatest rock'n'roll song of all time. Listen to the original version at (1:13) - Lou Reed and the gang had been playing the song since '66, finally recorded it in '69, but it wasn't released until 1985! We discuss the song in its context of Warhol's Factory and the Second Generation of New York School poets, but we also just love the Beat, the Beat, the Beat! Those Boston boys, Jonathan Richman & the Modern Lovers knew the song through live performances, so we listen to their own live take on the song from 1971 (1:17:48). Get ready to dance fast!

Nous recevons l'artiste américaine Natalia M King pour la sortie de son nouvel album Woman Mind Of My Own et Elliott Murphy, le plus Français des Américains, en duo dans cet album sur le titre Pink Houses de John Mellencamp. Ils sont nos invités dans la #SessionLive ainsi que 2 journalistes qui ont accepté de les présenter : Francis Dordor et Laurent Bachet.   Portrait de Natalia M King par Francis Dordor. Née à New York à la fin des années 60, Natalia Maria King a grandi à Brooklyn, au sein d'une famille monoparentale. Sa mère, d'origine dominicaine, travaille comme femme de service dans une cantine scolaire. Dans les années 70 et 80, New York est un formidable creuset et les oreilles de Natalia sont sollicitées par un large éventail de musique : rock, disco, soul, salsa, rap. Mais pour autant, peut-on parler d'influences, s'agissant d'une artiste qui va longtemps s'ingénier à effacer toute appartenance, chercher à rompre avec tout ce qui lui a précédé, pour inventer son propre langage, son propre son, trouver sa propre vérité. Sa vie est ainsi faite de nombreuses ruptures. La première intervient à l'Université de Rochester où elle se consacre à la pensée du philosophe John de Salisbury, un humaniste du Moyen-Âge à qui l'on doit cette citation : "Nous sommes des nains, assis sur des épaules de géants". Si étudier la philo la sort de son milieu d'origine, lui permet d'en savoir un peu plus sur elle-même et sur sa place dans ce monde, elle n'entend pas rester assise longtemps, fut-ce sur les épaules d'un géant. Dans une tradition qui doit autant à Arthur Rimbaud qu'aux auteurs beatniks, elle prend alors la route, traverse les États-Unis d'Est en Ouest, à bord de bus, cumulant en chemin les boulots alimentaires, elle fait la plonge dans les restaurants, livre des pizzas, vidange des moteurs et profite de ses moments perdus pour remplir un carnet de bribes de poésie, prémices de ses chansons. Après avoir trimé à bord d'un chalutier au large de l'Alaska, elle prend la direction de la Californie où elle devient chauffeur de taxi à Long Beach. C'est en Californie qu'elle découvre vraiment la musique, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, les Doors, ce qui lui fera dire "Je ne crois pas au conflit entre générations".     On la retrouve en 1998 à Paris, ville qui avait été un refuge pour de nombreux artistes noirs américains dont Miles Davis et Archie Shepp, qui n'étaient plus tenus de prendre l'entrée de service pour accéder à une salle. À partir de là, elle brûle les étapes, et des couloirs de métro où elle chante s'accompagnant à la guitare pour quelques pièces, se retrouve en 1ère partie de Diana Krall sur la scène de l'Olympia. Son 1er album album Milagro en 2001 est sans équivalent pour l'époque. Ayant conservé l'esprit du rock le plus sauvage, tout en s'affranchissant de la forme, son free rock ne doit rien à personne, sinon à elle-même et à son caractère indomptable. Suivront 2 autres œuvres aussi radicales "Furyandsound" et "Flesh Is Speaking". Trop radicales peut-être. Toujours est-il que lasse de creuser le même sillon alternatif, elle décide de retourner aux États-Unis et enchaîne à nouveau les jobs alimentaires. Il faut croire que seules les véritables étoiles méritent de réapparaître après éclipse, car de retour en France après quelques années, Natalia reviendra à la musique avec Soulblazz et Bluezzin T'il Dawn. Et celle qui ne croit pas au conflit entre générations, se glisse naturellement dans les pas de 2 immenses chanteuses, Nina Simone et Billie Holiday.     Cette nouvelle rupture annonce son dernier recueil Woman Mind Of My Own qui est à la fois un hommage à quelques grands noms du blues et de la soul comme Robert Johnson ou Aretha Franklin, mais aussi une célébration de ce qu'elle est au plus profond d'elle-même, une femme libre qui revendique sa sexualité, une artiste qui a vécu le blues avant de le chanter.   Puis nous recevons Elliott Murphy, portrait signé Laurent Bachet.     Alors question : est-ce Elliott Murphy qui a choisi la France, ou est-ce la France qui a choisi Elliott Murphy ? En tout cas, il habite à Paris depuis 32 ans et personne ne s'en plaint, bien au contraire. La 1ère fois qu'il a joué ici, c'était au Palace en 1979, où il a obtenu 6 rappels. Il s'est dit : "Tiens ici, on m'aime bien". Enfin il se l'est dit en anglais de New York, car à l'époque, il ne parlait pas encore parfaitement le français. Bien sûr, il est déjà apprécié des grandes plumes de la presse spécialisée et d'une cohorte de fans dévoués qui, depuis la parution de son 1er album en 73, adore l'univers poétique et urbain de ce rockeur cultivé, dandy passionné et élégant. Aux États-Unis, Elliott Murphy est donc un artiste culte qui lui-même admire Elvis Presley, les Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Muddy Waters, Otis Redding et son ami Lou Reed. Avec cette culture et ce savoir-faire, même si vous êtes un excellent showman, il n'est pas toujours évident de s'imposer, surtout si on vous compare à d'autres artistes qui émergent au même moment que vous comme David Bowie ou Bruce Springsteen, un autre de ses amis, car oui Elliott a beaucoup d'amis.     Alors il tente le voyage, l'aventure, l'exil peut-être. L'été 89, il atterrit à Paris avec sa guitare, son harmonica et s'installe à la Bastille. Ce jour-là, les jets de la Patrouille de France paradent dans le ciel, laissant de grandes traînées multicolores, sans compter les 2 immenses défilés sur les Champs-Elysées. Dans les rues on chante, on danse, on fait la fête. Très naturellement, Elliott Murphy prend tout cela comme des signes de bienvenue à son égard. Or, nous étions le 14 juillet 1989 et la France célébrait en grande pompe le bicentenaire de la Révolution Française. Immédiatement adopté par la population locale, Eliott Murphy a trouvé ici son refuge et depuis il rayonne dans toute l'Europe avec une moyenne d'une centaine de concerts par an. Il sait écrire des chansons qui deviennent des classiques, il sait se tenir sur une scène, et il sait s'entourer de musiciens fidèles et talentueux comme Melissa Cox et Olivier Durand ici présents. En revanche, Elliott Murphy ne sait pas donner de mauvais concerts. Entre folk, blues et rock, il propose des voyages intenses qui ne ressemblent à aucun autre. Et comme ce troubadour est plutôt du genre hyperactif, entre 2 concerts et 2 albums, il écrit des articles, des beaux romans et il lui arrive même de faire l'acteur dans des films. Car Elliott Murphy a aussi un sacré look : couvre-chef stylé en toute saison, foulard de corsaire, boots pointus façon Beatles, le tout mettant en valeur une silhouette ô combien affûtée.     Car depuis qu'il habite près des théâtres à l'italienne sur les grands boulevards à Paris, il a aussi acquis un truc un peu particulier et assez français : le panache ! La classe américaine, il l'avait déjà.   Morceaux interprétés à RFI lors de la #SessionLive - Woman Mind Of My Own (Natalia M King) - A Touch Of Kindness (Elliott Murphy) - Forget Yourself (Natalia M King) - On Elvis Presley's Birthday (Elliott Murphy) Et le duo sur Pink Houses (Natalia & Elliott) de John Mellencamp.     Musiciens - Elliott Murphy, guitare, voix - Olivier Durand, guitare, choeur - Melissa Cox, violon. - Natalia M King, voix, guitare - Ludovic Bruni, guitare.   Son : Mathias Taylor et Benoît Letirant Réalisation : Steven Helsly.

Weigh anchor and hoist the mizzen! Paul and Arlo set sail for a discussion of David Jenkins' pirate rom-com Our Flag Means Death. The new HBO Max series, a very loose telling of the history between Stede “The Gentleman Pirate” Bonnet and Edward “Blackbeard” Teach, begins as a silly romp very much in the vein of executive producer/star Taika Waititi's other work. And then…well, it becomes something very much more, depicting a number of queer romances in positive, affirming fashion. The boys discuss this shouldn't-be-shocking-in-2022 level of representation, the chemistry between Rhys Darby and Waititi, how closely (or not) the show follows the historical record, the series' moral of not accepting that the way things are is the way they have to be, and more.

Oi ga vay and Jesus Christ! Happy Purim and Passover! Oh boy, do we have a special interview for you today! We have someone we have wanted to speak to ever since we first initiated this Podcast: The Inimitable Eddie Stern! But man, we had so many problems with this recording! Ha! Just booking the time, some unexpected delays, so we just jumped right in without any introduction. Then we stopped so abruptly we lost the damn interview for weeks, only recovering the recording with a bit of technological magic. You'll feel absolutely transported as you jump right into our conversation with the iconic Eddie Stern… Talking about rectangles of all things and their place of importance in our world! Around 3 minutes in, you'll get to hear why (or why not) we always do postures to the right side first! And, of all the outrageously unorthodox things we said in this interview, “jumping to the left” seems to epitomize how unconventional we've all become. So listen now, as Eddie speaks to the origins of Revolved Side-Angle (parivrtta parsvakonasana) in the Ashtanga Sequence, and to the larger context of “Listening” within the yoga tradition. What is it that we, as students, can learn from surrendering our own beliefs and desires to a steadier mind found in the teacher? Is this even necessary? These days, Eddie is, surprisingly (or maybe not so surprisingly), directing his attention away from Pattabhi Jois' lineage, no longer wanting to engage in that world and all that it represents. We ask him to speak about how we, as students, might find our way moving forward in a post-guru world. It gets emotional. Spoiler Alert! Be sure not to miss the celebrity name drops at the end and a beautiful story about Lou Reed passing from life to death.

This season on the Burning Ambulance Podcast, we're going to have a single subject we're going to be exploring through all ten episodes, and that subject is fusion.Fusion, of course, is a term that means different things to different people. When most people hear it, they probably think of bands from the 1970s like the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Return to Forever, and Weather Report: groups that were formed by ex members of Miles Davis's band that played extremely complex compositions that were sometimes closer to progressive rock than to jazz, but which still left room for extended improvisation. What's interesting about that positioning is that it's very easy to draw lines between that stuff and the music being made by Yes, King Crimson, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, and Santana, all of which gets filed under just plain rock. And if you extend the boundaries out just a little bit further, you get to the music Latin artists like Eddie Palmieri, Ray Barretto, and the Fania All-Stars were making at the same time. Or think about some of the really adventurous funk and R&B that was being made by Earth, Wind & Fire, Parliament and Funkadelic, the Ohio Players, Slave, the Isley Brothers... This is what's so interesting to me about fusion, is that at its best it's about all kinds of musical boundaries being knocked down.I recently spent some time listening to a whole bunch of albums by keyboardist George Duke, released on the MPS label between about 1971 and 1976. Duke was a really fascinating figure, because he traveled between worlds to really unprecedented degree. He had his own trio in the late 60s, and somehow or other hooked up with electric violinist Jean-Luc Ponty. They made an album together, and the gigs they played in L.A. brought them to the attention of Frank Zappa and Cannonball Adderley, two people who couldn't have been doing more different things. But Zappa hired Ponty to play on Hot Rats, and then wrote and produced an entire album, King Kong, on which Ponty played Zappa's compositions, and George Duke was the keyboardist on that record. And after that, both Zappa and Cannonball Adderley – who, don't forget, had Joe Zawinul in his band before that, who composed “In A Silent Way” and played with Miles Davis, and formed Weather Report with Wayne Shorter – both Adderley and Zappa wanted George Duke in their bands. He wound up taking both gigs, doing two years with Zappa, then two years with Adderley, then going back to Zappa's band for three or four more years. He had left the group by 1975, though, so he was not part of the concerts recorded for the album Zappa In New York. But Randy Brecker was.Brecker and his brother, saxophonist Michael Brecker, who died in 2007, worked together in dozens if not hundreds of contexts from the late Sixties to the Nineties. They were both part of that Zappa concert, which was related to their being part of the Saturday Night Live band at the time; they played on a million recording sessions for everyone from Aerosmith to Bette Midler to Aretha Franklin to Lou Reed to Dire Straits to Donald Fagen. They were part of drummer Billy Cobham's band in the early to mid '70s, playing on Crosswinds and Total Eclipse and Shabazz and A Funky Thide Of Sings. And right around that same time, they formed the Brecker Brothers band and made a string of albums for Arista that were extremely successful. Now, what matters for the purposes of this introduction is that the side of fusion the Brecker Brothers represented was very different from the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Return to Forever, Weather Report side. That was, for lack of a better term, white fusion. It was marketed to white rock audiences. Those bands toured with rock bands. They played arena concerts. Lenny White talked about it in the previous episode of this podcast — the members of Return to Forever hung out with members of Yes. On the other side of the coin, there was black and Latin fusion. Like I said above, there was some incredibly challenging music being made under the headings of salsa and Latin jazz in the 70s – you should check out the episode of this podcast where I interviewed Eddie Palmieri to hear more about that, as well as the episode with Billy Cobham, where he talks about performing with the Fania All-Stars. There are funk records that are every bit as complex as prog rock. Jazz artists like Donald Byrd and Freddie Hubbard, George Duke and even Joe Henderson were all making records that can really only be described as fusion in the early 70s, and that's without even getting into what Miles Davis was doing, particularly with his live band from 1973 to 1975. But except for George Duke, who actually had Frank Zappa cut a couple of guitar solos on his 1974 album Feel, they were drawing more from funk than from rock, and they were marketed more to black audiences than white. And as Randy Brecker explains in this interview, that was where the Brecker Brothers fell. They had more success on black radio and on the R&B chart than in the rock world. Now, eventually, that more funk-oriented, R&B-oriented side of fusion slid in an explicitly commercial, radio-friendly direction, and a lot of it ended up as smooth jazz. Which is to some degree why the term is vilified in some quarters today. But that doesn't take anything away from the good stuff, and Randy Brecker has been involved with some very good records over the years.This was a really fun conversation that went in some very interesting directions. I hope you enjoy listening to it.Music in this episode: The Brecker Brothers, “Some Skunk Funk” (Heavy Metal Be-Bop)Billy Cobham, “Taurian Matador” (Shabazz)The Brecker Brothers, “Sneakin' Up Behind You” (The Brecker Brothers)
