(())UT (())USE (ZNS) Michigan Senator Philip Hart has announced he will retire next year rather than seek re-election. Hart, a liberal is hard at work on a bill that might stand as a greater legacy to him than his effort to create a consumer protection agency. He is drafting legislation that would end all federal penalties for the possession of less than 3~ ounces of marijuana. Hart has never crusaded for an easing of the pot penalties, at least until his 20-year old son was busted. Hart's son was recently given a 20-day term and fined $200. for possessing ajojnt less than a half inch long. The senator concedes that the jailing of his own child convinced him that current pot laws must go. .

The parents report they ran down the names and addresses mentioned in the tapes; checked out the license numbers of cars in the vicinity of the daughter's apartment; and occasionally put 'a tail' on their delinquent daughter. The information was passed on to Houston Narcotics officers, all of whom were informed of the ongoing tap. The daughter, now 23, is about to get married. The' protective parents say their daughter has thanked them "a million . times" for their vigilance. The cop : who helped set up the tap was also "grateful" 'and says he is going to the wed,ding. I

(ZNS) Feminist leader Betty Friedan has challenged Gloria Steinem to respond to allegations that Steinem may have worked for the CIA. Friedan charged that the CIA has inftltrated the women's movement. She said this activity has successfully caused feminist leaders to turn against one another. She then called on Steinem to respond to recent charges made by a NeW York women's group called "Redstockings." Redstockings claims Steinem had been active in the 1960's in organizing and running the "Independent Research Service," a gro~p which has since been identified as a CIA front. Steinem has refused to respond to the charges. .

(ZNS) A surburban Houston couple wiretapped their daughter's telephone for seven years and turned over drug.related information to area narcotics officers. The parents hooked up a voice-activating device to a home extension in 1967 when their daughter was a "difficult", 15year-old. Over thlj next seven years, they recorded and edited thousand~ of hours of drug conversations and post-puberty sex talks between their daughter and


(ZNS) The ACLU is charging that the FBI secretly funded and directed a paramilitary right-wing organization in San Diego and instructed 'the group to assassinate at least two radicals. The ACLU identifies the group as the "Secret Army Organization," a group similar to the Minutemen which carried out bombings ' and terrorist activities in the San Diego area in the late 60's and early 70's. The memo quotes former members as saying the SAO received funding and instructions from FBI agents. The memo identifies one FBI informer, John Rasberry, as admitting that the Bureau instructed him to assassinate a radical San Diego professor, Peter Bohmer. Bohmer's home ' was shot up in early 1972, and a friend of his was wounded. It was later disclosed at the trial of the assailant that FBI agent Steven Christensen hid the automatic weapon used in the attack for six months in his own home while local police hunted for it. The FBI ' also instructed SAO members to assassinate Chicano activist Linco Bueno. The FBI says it had nothing to do with . the SAO. (ZNS) There's good news for fans of the Bermuda Triangle. .:-

(ZNS) An anti-whaling group that has been following a Russian fleet along ili,e Pacific Coast reports it was nearly har~ pooned last week. The Canadian group has been using an 80-foot fishing 'boat in an attempt to chase whales away from a Soviet fleet of nine ships. The members radioed that they have saved at least 3 sperm whales.

Bugle Readers: I have just finished writing a letter to the D.A., complaining of the illegal search made of my belongings and person by the Milwaukee Police Department at the two stadium concerts on 6-8-75 'and 6-22-75. Anyo')w who was searched or unduly harassed by members of the M.P.D. for any: reason, has an obligation to them, selves and every Goncert goer to report this outrageous treatment to th'e D.A., and demand that these activities be stopped immediately. If we are ever to get ourselves out of the near-hopeless tangle of the "BreierPatch", we must fight our way out with floods ofletters and phone calls, with the collective outcry of the thousands of citizens who, at any and all times, are being wounded mentally, phYSically and spiritually by the thorns of injustic~! (How's that for verbosity?) All of you who were violated in any way by the M.P.D., sit down right now (Yes now! So you don't forget!) and send a note to the D.A. and your alderman, etc. stating your feelings about the M.P.D.'s treatment ,at the stadium, on the streets, etc. and demand action! They don't harass people going to Washington Park for "Music Under the Stars." We , have a right to the same individual privacy at concerts atId everywhere! [ Tell them now!

*** ' Dear Mr. Clancy: r read with great interest your article "TIley've Got Your Number ... and Name, And Address, and More" in the June 18 issue of the Bugle-American. I was sorry to note your use of the namecalling syndi-ome so artfully employed by I the larger newspapers, that of the term "junk mail", throughout your article . Being a proponent of advertising, regar~less of media, it' always sutprises me to see the term used only to serve the

purpo~ of downgrading direct mail advertismg. If a merchant sends an advertisement to a person via the U.S. Post Office it becomes "Junk", yet that same advertising effort can be carried out via an ad in your newspaper or any of the magazines that enjoy "Second Class" privileges and it becomes a nice, clean, profitable endeavor. At this point you might take note that your article reached much of your audience because of the pages of ads and ' the revenue they produced. Also, I might point out, for your en- , lightenment that' junk mail' constitutes an industry that' puts 22.5 billion pieces of mail into the postal stream, weighing 2.3 billion pounds and returning 1.2 billion dollars to the Treasury. Your media which I consider to be "Second Class" (newspapers and magazines) provided 8.8 billion pieces weighing 2.9 billion pounds and returned 212 million dollars to the Treasury. That's right! "Junk Mail" provided 2~ times as Jl\any pieces as ':Second Class", total weight was less and returned SIX TIMES ,as much money to the Treasury. Ne.edless to' say this certainly has a profound effect on the overall cost structure of the postal system, Finally, I ask only that you consider the above in your future efforts at writing articles. and w6uld hope that you would see fit to refer to my media as "advertising mail" in place of your cliche. Sincerely, Merlyn W. Webb. Pres. PubliShers Mail Service, Inc . .

*** Dear Bugle, At the Stones concert June 8th, I got exactly what I came for: a lot of great Rock and Roll played by the greatest Rock and Roll band. It is too bad the concert was so laid back. But there is no one to , blame for that, especially not the Stones. It was the circumstances of the whole day. I was at the stadium from 2:00 A.M: Sunday morning. It was too crowded to move from 6:00 A.M. on. When I fmally squeezed through the gate and 'passed the cop's inspection, I could still fmd no comfort. During most of the day, the infield near the stage was hotter than hell. I didn't bring anything to drink so I was just sick the whole day. I slept through Rufus. When the Eagle performed I was awake but couldn't sit up. I woke up fast when the Stones came on. All in all, it was worth the hassle to see Mick and the boys do their thing.

"Summerfest" ..."Bummerfest.....either or bo'th, it's not for me to categorize an event interpreted by a population the size of it's host city. The ll-day extravaganza could 짜alidly be described by anyone person's experience and state of mind, whether positive or negative. First, let's deal with the statistics by ignoring them. You might like to know that Shakey's sold 3,000 pizzas and the beer vendors at the Americana Village were paid $3.25 an hour--significant things like that. But attendance and financial figures are not as yet tabulated, and a list of dry facts can be found elsewhere. A few general, personal impressions were: good vibes, placid police, mediocre to excellent entertainment, moderately exorbitant p'rices. \ Summer fest is organized by Milwaukee World Festival, Inc., and as the name suggests, it was planned this year to attract you and me and everybody else. Saturday night, the 12th, the Melting Pot was at its warmest, heated by the largest one-day gathering, looking loose and lively and ready for the Party. Sauntering between Roberta 'Flack's

Governments wage war outside, but in that fleeting microcosm... t ,Quite a contrast from two years ago when violence at the Humble Pie performance almost closed, the book on the Mayor's showcase. In response, la'st year's Summerfest offered a ~poonful of musical pablum. Nothing against Seals & Crofts and Sha Na Na, but with the hot boogie bands back at the ranch, there was a glaring , lack of variety in pop music. TQis year some healthy rock and Blues was sUl?plied by the likes of Chuck Berry, Luther Allison, Short Stuff and Houndog Taylor. So, the diverse talents of Roberta Flack, Joan Baez, Woody Herman and Bill Monroe added a nice complement. The rock bands were chosen ca~efully by Milwaukee World Festival President Steve Marcus, himself a former rock promoter, and Mike Beikin Productions of Cleveland, which stages concerts throughout th~ Midwest. Maybe too cautiously, they sought the Big Names of rock without!a history of concert trouble. Assured( ly, many were invited, but schedulihgproblems and salaries unbefitting Superstars got in the way. Asked which big groups they contacted, Marcus replied, facetiously, that Pink floyd teamed up with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra wo~ld have b,een interesting. '. But the devil probablY could have played without major incident because of the attitude of the police, who were drawn from throughout the city's force rather than from the local precinct. Marcus and other fest,ival officials, plus Dr. Alan Reed and tp.e Traveling Medicine Show (which worked this sUl11llier's two stadium concerts) all praised the cops for their unaggressive attitude. Smoking wasn't prevalent, although the pipes and numbers were openly and nonchallantly passed around at various music performances near the stage area. Arrests for everything averaged a relatively few 10 to 12 a day, although the exact totals haven't yet been released. Finding 0\1t the number of uniformed police I and plainclotHesmen working the grounds would be as easy as arranging an interview with Chief Breier. Reed says no serious medical emergencies arose, but a crew of . 66 was buSiest when treating lacerations and bloody noses as a result of several Skirmishes at the Earth, Wind and Fire concert. , There were .. few drug related problems, apart from alcohol, although an amateur pharmacist randomly powdered beer cups at the jazz oasis with "poorly synthesiaed" PCP, a heavy duty animal tranquilizer. A few unsuspecting jazz fans had to be treat~d, ana the dispenser himselflater wound up at the tent closely re. . sembling a zombie after sampling his wares. So much for the PCP. Reed's staff dealt solely with concert incidents; the Red Cross treated all others. The two operations had tents in the same area¡ and some felt the Red Cross may have been better located near the midway due to the possibility of accidents associated with the rides there. ' ' / Food ~nd drink were a major improvement over previous Summerfests when a pational outfit, Ogden Foods, owned the place. Prices, variety and quality this year benefited from competition among local and chain food services. Downtown traffic congestion was simply chaotic during the festival, but maybe the most common complain,t was that the toilets were too inacceSSible for the beer-bloated patrons. , Maybe a good time was not had by all, but the composite face \ at Summerfest wore a smile, just like that silly o(ficiallogo. .

Five Years ,After




Summerfest '75 President Steve Marcus

'Sunday marked the close of Summerfest's fifth year at it 's lakefront site, and the stock phrase heard now is that Summerfest has "come of age." .:J:here i,s no doubt Summerfest has come a long way from it's scattered beginnings around town. The first year, 196,8, is sort of , a local embarrassment. Anyone having managed to find Summerfest that year probably didn't thinkJt would last. The following year wasn't much better. Some topless female Indian tribal dancers we~e busted for obscenity, was th~ only event worth reportmg. After '69 someone at City Hall decided tnat the only way to make money at Summerfest was to centralize it. The abandoned Nike missle site at the Lakefront was chosen. But how do you attract enough paying customers to a moldy old field reeking with dead alewives? The answer, of course, was to bring in rock music. Rock music fans, it was learned at Woodstock, took delight in groveling in shit while hearing various gods and goddesses. So, with some help from Charlie Fain, a local promoter, Summerfest booked Sly and the Family Stone to play on a makeshift stage surrounded by a not-so-secure snow fence. Thousands' of people, mostly young, of equ'al racial mixture showed up. Procol Harum warmed up the crowd, but it was Sly's usual tardiness that made the people hot. Fights broke out ut,the crowd and the show nearly broke into a race riot. The show also made money, and money was the name of the garne. In '7 1Chuck Berry, John Sebastian and Judy Collins rang up the register, but Poco brought a barrage of-bottles and rocks to the stage, causing an early closure to the show. People registered their protest over having to sit in folding chairs sunk six inches into the mud by burning them. The following year will probably be forever referred to as the "year of the busts." The main stage crowd was infiltrated heavily with narcs, who made some rather conspicuous arrests right up front. The police, in an infmite show of courage and tact, created a high point by arresting George Carlin for being a little too Lenny Bruce. For once Summerfest managed to make the national news. Everyone remembers '73 as the year of the debacle. In actuality it wasn't a whole lot worse than the: two years previous. People charged the stage, threw rocks and burned the beer tents. But this time the police retreated and the arrests made headlines. By the end of Summerfest '73 the festival had made enough \ money off the rock crowd to be considered a promising institution. The brass decided to try flying solo, relying on f;unily types for success. In 1974 middle America finally did come to Su~erfest. Walking around the grounds during the day in '72 or '73 you had the place pretty much to yourself. By '74 it seemed apparent that Summerfest could get along without youth. And it did. This year's Summerfest was obviously less cautious than last year's, though not much more so. The crowds were so placid for what little rock there was, flowers could have grown between the The Bugle-American

seats. (However, Summerfest officials took flak from the city's conservatives for bookin~ Joan Baez. For some people time does ' seem to stand still...) . And middle America again turned out for the folk fest, country stage and the circus. A happy blend, as it were, with no hassles. P~t of the reason for the calm crowd, of course, was the complete absence of narcs. , Another reason for this year's success was some of the leadership. Steve Marcus, this year's president, was open to new ideas. The evet:1ts committee was chaired by Bob Reitman, a WQFM deejay, also a highly creative person. And Reva Shore's sense 'Of deAt Summerfest's past: The (ires of '71 (upper left); sign gave some badly needed comprehension to the grounds. busting George Carlin in '72 (above); and storming Where does Summerfest go from here?

It may also use this as an opportunity to put the festival in the perspective Mayor Maier has had in mind all along---an exhibition of "Milwaukee's contributions to the world," mainly its industries, not its artistry. Perhaps for this reason Maier has turned the controls over to three men who represent Milwaukee's most tilmous product--the heads of the three-largest breweries. , These men are not Steve Marcuses. They embody Milwaukee's Old Guard. They ate cut from the cloth, of this city's Deutsch overcoat, and when wearing that apparel, Summerfest may appear entirely different.

(jato BaRBI€RI: "tlk€ an att€ycat" Gato Barbieri came to entertain the rapidly growing crowd of Milwaukee jazz enthusiasts at The Miller Jazz Oasis 'a couple of nights last \\(eek. The excitement was so intense that the groups performing just prior to Gato's appearance could not be totally appreciated. Indeed, it was difficult to concentrate amidst the ,din ever increasing as the scheduled feature drew near. Leandro "Gato" ("<;:at") Barbieri began his musIc career at age 12 in his native land Argentina. Mter playing Dixieland clarinet and more traditional Latin musi~, Gato shifted primarily to saxes. For a short time he was a member of Lalo Schifrin's orchestra. In 1962 he married his wife Michelle and moved to Europe to promote their. careers. After building,a reputation by playing the jazz clubs of Rome and scoring Bernardo Bertolucci's "Befdre the Revolution" Gato came to New York 10 years ago with trumpeter Don Cherry. He later went solQ and cut 3 albums for the Flying Dutchman label. Following his first two releases with Impulse Records, musically displaying his native Argentinean roots, and the success of his "Last Tango in Pans" soundtrack, Gato received acclaim as one of the top tenors. Donned in black his opening night, Gato looked like a cattle rustler as he came on so confident and arrogant. This coupled with the deep-throated sensual tone quality of his tenor made 1tim a fa-

vorite with Milwaukee ladies. Stylistically, he seems to grapple with 'his horn in a struggle fIlled with compassion from which emanates ' beautiful melodies pregnant with Latin romanticism. Barbieri's performance at Summerfest was an example of the variety of his musical experience. Accompanied by Edy Martinez, electric piano; Paul Metzque, ~itar; Roland Wilson, bass; Cachete, congas; and Portho on drums, Gato opened the evening with a composition using variations of the "Last Tango" theme. The intensity of rhythms and time change~ never relinquished itself to the mellow quality of the tango. However, for those who came tc)hear the sweet, Gato played "Milonga Triste," a beautiful ballad complete with the Latin melancholy typical of Antonio Carlos Jobim. Later, as the accompanying musicians set the backdrop, Gato clapp,ed and chanted "La China Leoncia, La China Leoncia." This selection employed the frantic searching quality reminiscent of the Flying Dutchman days and the "New Jazz" movement initiated a few years ago. This was the,only moment at which the piercing spacy quality ~~ the electric piano seemed to contribute to the feeling yf the ,mu- -, SiC.


Although there could have been more percussion, usually evident . in Latin music, Portho's colorful drumming was forceful enough to suggest counter-balancing rhythms of the absent timbales and other percussive instruments. Many believed that Gato Barbieri was to be the best act booked ',,, at Summerfest. Indeed, he may have been for the only obvious , disappointment was he never returnetl to do an encore. --Jim Erzycki Bugle American

A roar came out from the audience as McGuinn burst onstage, looking spiffy in a black suit and led off with "I Wasn't Born to Follow". By his second number, "Mr. Spaceman" he had tge audience eating out of the 'palm of his hand. ~ His show , however , was not a reha,sh of the Byrd's greatest hits. He included a brand new song called "So Long", "The Lady", "Driving Wheel'~, "Peepin' & Hidin' " as well as a song "near and dear to my heart because it was wri~ten for "Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid". The tune of course was "Knockin' on Heaven' s Door.' ~ The Roger McGuinn Band really cooks. There's a heavier- ' rock influence than in earlier days and the group works well as a unit .

Bobby ' Blue' Bland : \

'r op .Drawe r' - - -

U on't see too many r&b band revues around here, probably for the same reasons we don't see lots of other enjoyable entert ainment features around this black hole of American city-dom. For that reason alone , hope people were in a mood to enjoy Bobby Blue Bland's two days worth of Summer fest appearances . 路Quite a few other reasons to dig it also. As usual , Bland bought along a snappin' tight band and one keeping pace with the era as well (adventurous, jazz-flavored arrangements, often executed in non-elementary time schemes). Some good featured soloists, too (trumpet-b andmaster, saxophonist, and Mel Brown, yet, on guitar). That band handle s the whole first 'set, 'including a stint by a protege vocalist towards the end & it's a satisfying affair. Needless to say , however, that by the first -few minutes of the second set the audience 'is more than ready fo r the main man to take the stage, & he does it with sh6w-biz veteran's aplomb. Bland' s still got it. He takes a little too much of a run-through approach these days but you still get an extended glimpse of that vocal magic, the smooth yet urgent high, ringing baritone, so w ~ ll in control yet able to imply depths of soul. I haven't been keeping up 011 Bland like I ought a be, hence didn't recognize all the tunes, although the miglity " I Pity the Fool" was certainly there , and~ what would it all b e without " Stormy Monday" one time for '.lwhile , / eh ?.

Monster The Boogie , ' Ate the ,Sweatsocks!


John Hartford came to the Schlitz Country stage at Summerfest on the evening of July 9 and played a very good concert. The audience braved intermittent rain and received the performance with obvious enthusiasm. But for some reason, I went hbme liisappointed· and in attempting to pinpoint the reason, I cannot shake the feeling that I was witness to yet an0ther successful putdown of Mywaukee concert-goers. ' This was the fourth time I'd seen 'Hartford perform within the past year, so.I'm accustomed to th~ just-rolled-out-of-bed-and-stillpre-coffeed appeararice and the low-keyed attitude he radiates; it suits me, just fme. Likewise Lcan't fault him for any contractual violations. He showed up well in advance of the 9:30 scheduled , appearance and demon~trated his knowledge of how to play tastefully with other musicians as he treated the crowd at;ld Hickory Wind to a guest appearance with that ''warm-up'' band during their entire fmal-set. Together they played seven tunes, concluding with the' "Orange Blossom Special," which banjo player Bob Shank introduced jokin,gly as the "Orange Blossom Sweatsock"--but the full implications of this went over the heads of most of the listenersthe O.B. Special equals Bluegrass, right? I mean, if they didn't play ' it, they can't be bluegrass, huh?-and the listeners ate it up. Hartford, meanwhile, was using skills sharpened during years of I performing experience to size up the audie'nce and plan his set. To bring the energy 'level down and give himself something to build on, he opened on the fiddle with a classical exercise emphasizing Page 20

Th~ Cannonball Adderley Quartet was 'featured for 3 days at Miller's Oasis last week as jazz seemed to 'be the only thing on many people's minds. The long time alto player and his brother Nat on comet provided the expected light combination that has been the trademark of their band for some years. On their opening night, Wednesday, the musicians were greeted by rain, however, the large audience remained seated intent upon , hearing some of the quintet's hits. Cannonball played his biggies ranging from blues funk to gospel with occasional solos by Nat , and himself. ' . There were some surprises, though. l'he most welcome was pianistcomposer Michael Wolff. Featured with string bassist Walter Booker on "Wa BO)1" (American Indian meaning east wind) Michael displayed his/ability to create images through composition and performance on acoustic piano. With the quartet for six months after stretches with Cal Tjader and Charlie Byrd and not yet 23 years old, this kid has a lot to look forward to. Following Wolfrs piece, drummer Roy McCurdy gpt a chance to show off on Nat's "Five of a Kind." ), After "Mercy Mercy Mercy" and a few selections performed by the back-up trio" ~at came on with a ~luesy vocal that really got the people gruntm. Two drunk dancmg babes were showered with beer cups as they attempted to and succeeded in arousing the crowd in front of the stage. After alI'else failed to discourage the poor girls, the delightful leader of the beer cup barrage came on like Gypsy Rose Lee and truly gave the crowd a rush. By the end of the song the audience was warmed up and ready to tip only to be left the~e as the group went into their hoaky break tune with wishes of good night. This sequence, of ~vents seemed typical of the evening's performance, as selections alternated from brilliant to boring. The inconsistency only reinforces the dismay when one realizes the capability of the individuals-and the group. Maybe the other two nights went , \ . more smoothly.

The opportunities to catch live bluegrass legends in Milwaukee come seldom if ever. Bill Monroe has influenced perhaIfs more, of the newer musieal offshoots of the traditional bluegrass ~tyl~ than any other musician in his genre. It was through Bill Monroe records that songs like "Footprints In The Snow" and "Mule skinner Blues" were picked up by the younger generation of blue-grass pickers . like Clarence White and Peter Rowan. ' Bill Monroe and his Bluegrass Boys.turned in a solid showing of bluegrass tradition at Schlitz Country to a packed, enthusiastic crowd that was yelling out favorite tunes with surprising fr.equency. Most oftthe requests were quickly honored without so much as a batting of the eyelids. It was southern hospitality with the guests playing hosts to the likes of "Blue Kentucky Moon," "Uncle Penn" and "Rostabout." Featured on fiddle was Kenny Baker; 'perhaps the best' fiddler alive in the traditional bluegrass vein. His agility



and tasteful licks even made \the well~worn "Orange Blossom Special" a real treat. Baker's only smile was cracked when he blew the leadoff t'o the title cut from his latest alb,um, "Grassy Fiddle Blues." Otherwise he was as e:l}pressive as, a bloodhound. Bill Monroe is the epitome of the southern gent; he and his band d~cked out in white suits and white hats. The vocal chords had to stretch and strain to catch some of the s)"eet yodels during "Muleskinner Blues," but traditions can always fall back on charisma when all else fails. His mandolin picking also got off to a shaky start but moved right along after the boys warmed it up. When ,those four,musician'g all huddled around one microphone for the harmonies on "Uncle Pen~" you could almost feel the warm I Kentucky sun come shinin' through. That's what traditional bluegrass is all about Milwaukee should be thankful that s~ch a fine dose made its way north. -B.P. Page 21

Hoyt Axton opened this show with a self-admittedly ragged set that was strong on energy but lacking in polish. Axton is a big, braZen character, better known (again,by self-admission) as a songwriter ("Never Been To Spain", Ringo's "No No Song") than a performer. Yet as his set progressed, it became easier to forget the slightly but of tune guitars and the sometimes missed harmonies and dig on the man's personality which was upfront . and warm. By the time he brought out his two young sons to help on "No No Song" you had to be at least smiling. There was an encore of "Will The Circle Be Unbroken" that brought Ms, Baez out early. Again th~ edges were ragged (they'd never sung the song together before) but as Baez put it: "That makes it all the more fun." ( , . ' , I ' Joan stayed on after Axton exited and talked to the crowd while she helped adjust her mike stands. The loose, personal feeling that Axton had created was to follow through in Baez's three ets, only the professionalism remained intact. Joan was doing this tour for three reasons: 1. to make money, 2. to promote her latest album Diamonds And Rust and 3. to have a good time. All three should be well satisfied if {his evening's' concert was any indication of future stops. Her stage, presence was loose arid extraordinarily bouncy. Launching into "Blue Sky" as the opening number with full band accompaniement, Baez placed the new sound right up front immediately. Her bciIld literally soared. With Dav'- id Briggs on keyboards, Dan Ferguson on guitar, Jim Gordon on ' drums and James Jameson on bass, Baez had assembled a perfect vehicle for her first exploration into an electric format onstage . . Joan made it evident early in the show that her political interest's haven't lost any zeal. While she waited for a new guitar chord and a balance in the monitor sound she did a straightforward version of "Don't Let Nobody Tum You Around" which featured

such notables as Indira Gandhi and "Lousy Kissinger" during the verses. The first set continued with a beautiful version of "Jesse", a surprise with Emmylou Harris' "Boulder To Birmingham", an acapella "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" and an excellent version 0 f Dylan's "Four Letter Word", learned by the band earlier that afternoon. After a short break, Baez returned for a six song acoustic solo set which featured three album title cuts: "Come From The Shadows", "alessed Are ... " and Dylan's "I Shall Be Released". She also did Woody Guthrie's "Pastures of Plenty", the traditional ~ "Silver Dagger" and closed with "Joe Hill". She was drawing equally positive responses during both sets from an enthusiastic crowd (as enthusiastic as you can be when you're freezing.) t.• When the band returned for Jackson Browne's "Fountain Of Sorrow" the energy level picked up and the crowd was treated to ' :::-, another stellar set. Highpoints included a sad new song written by Steve Goodman entitled "Yellow Coat", a firie version of Ste-: vie Wonder's "I Never Thought You'd Leave In Summer" that ~ featured JOlin on piano and a strong "The Night They prove Old ~ Dixie Down" that -surpassed the studio version by leaps and bounds. ; Her "first all-out attempt at rock'n'roll, Dylan's "Simple Twist ' Of Fate" was excellently camped; posing in an early Dylan stance . straining at the microphone during her imitation Dylan verse. She ~• really had fun and that positive energy was higltiy contagious. : The encore was an acapella rendition of "Amazing Grace"; Joan ., : reminding ev.eryone with this closing number ,that she still has strong ties to foJk music, but also that rock'n'.roll is music now. Either way she was strong. It was a beautiful evening and a strong sh.O\ying of the new Joan Baez. Welcome back.

THE DillARDS: 'DANCING IN THE AIS1ES'-Just about all the actio n this weekend at Summerfest was divided between the one million and seven beer stands and the Country Stage. While swarms of Milwaukeeans reached for that last little bit of 50 cent paper cup wetness , the Dillards made the last 'two nights of Summerfest musically exciting, creating a foot stompin' fervor that called them back for several encores each nigr,t. The only Dillard in the Dillards is Rodney, lead singer and guitar player. Other members of the five piece group include a fellow from Strawberry, Arkansas said to be the David Bowie of the Ozarks. That remark was never explained, conjuring up all sorts of weird imagt:s in my head. But it matters little in the face of the finest country,/bluegrass music I've heard in a long time . AJ;cording to band members , just about all their songs are either about hounds or moonshine . While there are a few exceptions, the spirit of the music could be best explained by the feeling you might get sitting on a country porch, sipping from a jug with three x's on the front and listening to the neighborhood boys get down. The Dillards did exactly that through two sets each night, playing mostly original material with a few country standards thrown in for familiarity. The crowd seemed to respond to both equally well. Highlights ofl:1oth sets were breakdowns, masquerading under one name or another, but full of more spirit than a . h'Ound dog in heat. There was dancing in the aisles, not visible foot that wasn't giving in to the urge to tap , and more smiles per square inch than anywhere on the Summerfest grounds. Why Page 24


contend with the 40,000 plus people at the main stage when there was such quality stuff going on elsewhere? It was impossible to listen to the DHlards without remembering that Bob Wills had died recently. Not that the music was so similar , but the roots were coming from common ground. This ~ight be a good place to sneakily stick in the fact that all you people who are into Jackson Browne, the Eagles, Gene Clark , et aI, should be aware that Bob Wills was the father of country swing which swung into the progressive country rock that a lot of people from the city listen to today. His accomplishments shOUldn't. go unnoticed. Seeing all the people have an excellent time to Rodney and the boys made me see that Milwaukeeans can dig back a little in the roots of country music and like the natural feel of the ground.

"The Mainstream" 'yo~ could've called the band playing this concert. Jazz mainstream; that is, which is still "the mainstream" of American music, you understand. I even saw our mayor strolling around the backstage area with a smile on his face. He probably smiles like that all "the time, but the point is that no one is gonna put Ella & Co. do~n. Roy Eldridge opened the bill. Something like sif.ty & recently ailing, I'm told, he can't quite command the higher registers as III the 30's, when he was blowing king of the trumpeters, but he still gives it a photo-finish run and he knows just what to play without "relying" upon anything dated. The rhythm section was tremendous all night long, a very hip trio which meshed just right. Tommy Flannagan is the legendary nonpareil accompaist, one 'of a few of whom it can really be said "he's played with all of 'em" and\he comes off like all the jazz pianb played right. Ex-Charlie Byrd bassist Keeter Betts (liked that Spanish strumming solo) and the strongly efficient drumming of Bobby Durham complete the ba~d lineup. _ . But there's still nothing quite like Ella. She had what was possibly the most receptively appreciative of Summerfest audiences squarely in the palm of her hand as soon as she hit the stage (with a minimum of fanfare that many hitter-C!ay "stars" would do well to emulate). Well she should have. Simply enough, she's one of the,standards by which a Whole generation and more of female jazz vocalists has been judged. That wonderfully clear voice which sounds like it's co'ming out of a 22-year-old, with its impeccable phrasing and com- "

plete dynamic control is an awesome thing to hear. Many are struck by her improvisaHonal (scat, if you will) fluidity, but, then, others can approximate such things. What's really amazing is that anyone-could-do-it ease with which she can deliver a tune straight up with what would appear to be no frills (actually she's subtly on and off tempo, up & down the register almost continually). . Ella glided through a set of those "standard" standards that blur into focus in my mind and the range was from "A-Tisket-A Tasket" to C;uole King. But it's when she takes a klinker like "Wives and Lovers" (that is what 'it's called isn't it?) and renders it palatable that you know you're in the presence of genius.

Summerfest's Rock Performance Area filled quickly fo r the Saturday afternoon Roberta Flack show. Two shows were sched路 uled for the day. One being at 3:30 pm; the other was a 7:30 spot. Stanley Turrentine was scheduled to play before Roberta, but the afternoon show went on without him. Roberta's band lead in before she made h~r appearance with a splash of cymbals and glJt level funk from the lead guitarist. The seven band members were accompanied in their introduction by three able-throated songstresses who sang in a spirited gospel fash1ion . Ms. Flack took the_noble entrance and approached a massive grand piano--- the sonJ~bird began to sing. , The band had fallen silent for her a 路capella begihning to "Killing Me Softly". Roberta eased her piano accompaniment in quietly~ as Errol Bennett graced the airwaves with sonorous percussives. His polished musicianship was equalled by that of his peers. A sweet, soft electric piano section led into a mellow guitar bridge. By the conclusion of that opening . tune, the band members were interrelating on a massive scale. The four female voices blended in complementary style. A startling fact presented itself! This'is an act! I must confess I expected to hear this pretty little lady sing.her sweet, soft songs. Well she did just that--but q~ite a bit more. Her sidemen drive from the word go. They are: Keith Luvitt, lead guitar; Richie Reznekoff, guitar; Errol Bennett or "Crusher" as he is nicknamed, on percussion; Harry Whittiget on electric piano and what appeared to be a string synthesizer; Warren Schezan, vibes; bassist, Anthony Jackson; and the renowned IDRIS MOHAMMED on drums! That line-up is pretty astonishing in itself. Most of those musicians are imminent in various areas of the recording field. Little did I expect this jazz orchestra as a back-up to Roberta's pleasant acoustic piano and vocal. Roberta Flack's producing and qrranging associate, Leon Condobis, took the role of musical director. The gospel trio was composed of Lonny Grohs who came sporting a flashing pink floor length gown, Brenda White in a soft pink and brown ensemble, and singer/songwriter Gwen Guthrie engarbed in various shades of orange. The girls' singing was as bright and elegant as their clothing. They are rather accomplished in the field themselves. Gwen Guthrie penned "Supernatural Thing" which Rage 26

made it to the no. 1 spot in the charts recently. And I believe Brenda White has recorded with Stevie Wonder. Roberta called for a pair of shades to ease the distress -of her westerly gaze, and introduced the Gene McDaniels tune : "Feeling That Glow." That number is from her new album . It was a perfect vehicle fo r the Flack vocal style . "Jessie" was served up nex t. Roberta accompanied her own easy vocal for this Janis Ian number with some languid and subdued phrasings from her grand piano. An upbeat instrumental 'broke forth in vivid contrast to the previous songs and if it weren't for the intricate sophistication of the rhythm guitar work it might have been closely akin to reggae. The crowd was incited to participate when Keith Luvitt broke into a bluesy but high-powered and fast moving slide guitar solo. The vocal trio lended support and enhanced the jam. Roberta went into a monologue and introduced the band. The lady had a lot of audience rapport . She's very sure of herself and in command of her audience; she came off showing herself as much of a powerful personality as the soft-lovely vocalist we've grown accustomed to hearing over the radio. After a really heavy bass jam by Tony Jackson, Roberta ended her narrations and moved to center stage, brandishing a hand mike, and oozed out "Feel Like Makin Love".. . Hearts were awakened with the emotional 'Climax "The First Time Ever I Saw Your F.ace". The audience melted, and so did Roberta as she sang. The final number of the hour set was initiated in a p~ano and guitar quel between Roberta and Keith. This was a lengthy and moving blues, a tongue-in-cheek theme of a staunch preacher being tantalized by a delectable lady. Fiack trucked off the stage as the group attempted to grind into their finale . But a false en~颅 ing was ta)cen up again by a few of the performers and Roberta strode back out t~ finger the grand once more. The finale came as an energetic crash of sounds. And the crowd was wholly satisfie d. The lady's got soul.

Q., '/

Bee Gees: twenty yeaRs What rock group has been together twenty years without turning b'rother against brother-at least in public? Answer- the Bee Gees, and the folks at Atlantic records decided to celebrate the occasion in Milwaukee with a press rece"ption Sunday afternoon prior to their 3:30 Summer fest concert. Before you think the Bee Gees have discovered the secrets of youth, let me explain that they started when they were quite close to six, mugging around on musical stages. According to Maurice Gibbs, "We were able to keep it together because we had exceptionally understanding headmasters and we were also brilliant." I wouldn't argue that fact, in the light of the superb classical training and background group members have, translating itself into some extraordinarily fine arrangements with intricacies that work .. .instead of getting awkward and affected. But,back to the party, for a minute. Imagine a Holiday Inn room with marine camouflage carpeting, gold and white wallpaper with American eagles spreading their wings all over it and a cake that looked like a refugee from any of Saturday night's wedding receptions. Add a few sleepy looking Bee Gees and you have a pretty good idea of what was going on. I fmd the party more fun to review simply because there weren't 40,000 people there, I could hear what was going on, and it seeme'd a lot mont interesting than what eventually transpired that after.noon and evening. Channel 12 was there filming the cutting of the cake as various group members mugged their way through what could in no way be called a solemn occasion., Champagne lightened up the otherwise oppressive air~that Sundays seem to take on, and for the 10 or 15 minutes they were there, the Bee Gees were affable, nice lookingandanswered all the questions put to them. It was clear that 20 years in show business hadn't given these boys big heads! July 16, 1975


a~teR ,

Quite seriously, they were great, if a little bleary eyed. While I was" talking to Gibbs, he was informed that they were due on stage in 45 minutes with no opening act ,to delay things a bit. Asking only that he be allowed 30 minutes for a drink, he smilingly whisked out the door, wiping the cake crumbs from his mouth saying "Ah, yes, it's been a very nice tour", and going out into the small ;.1 city of Summerfest to entertain the masses. The scene at the main stage was once again bedlam. People in the aisles, jockeying for position, craning their necks for at least ,. a glimpse of the folks they had come to hear. The saving grace was the sound system. If you couldn't look at the band, at least you .could hear them pretty well. "Gotta Get A Message To You" was their opening number, and tlley did get the message across throughout the course of the afternoon. They followed with "Edge Of The Universe" from their new album, Main Course. Nonetheless, the audience seemed to be setting a pattern of responding more to the tunes that had some sentimental signifi. cance for them, and the Bee Gees responded with more than a few of their old hits. They ventured Lnto "Come On Over", and while , the one-hand-to-the-ear, Bee Gees, vocals were there, the song hever , really came off. The crowd seemed a little bored, and people be- )' gan trickling out. It's hard to say whether it was from apathy or ~ claustrophobia. _ :' The music was good ... the Bee Gees seemed into what they were .: doing. But it all got lost somewhere in that sea of people. Why doesn't Summerfest come up with an indoor eoncert facility, to be used year round? It would save a lot of music from wafting OJ out over Lake Michigan. . o , -Carol Line

so I spent a ton of dough talking with. strange and interesting people for long stretches of time. I also got into some weird situations like the time Miss Nude America disrobed in the studio, I advertised for weeks about heralding the first day of summer in Chicago with three topless girls on the sidewalk near the City Hall downtown. People got real excited and just about died when the girls turned out to be two years old. , "I almost got into big trouble once when I advertised for a week that at high noon on a given day I would toss a bag filled with 500 one dollar bills out of a 5th floor window of a building in downtown Chicago. Five minutes before I was to toss the money, some kids w~o had cut newspaper to the size of the bills tossed the fake s,t uff out of a window directly above mine. I was shocked when I saw all the people below push and shove to get at the fake money. A police captain ordered me not to toss the cash and said if I did I'd cause 'a race riot. He was probably right. I'd have felt pretty bad if I caused someone to get injured. The fact that he'd have thrown the book at me also had something to do with it. I probably would never go to that extreme again. " After five years of working nights, the Leg decided it was time to get into some daytime work. He was offered a job hosting a tv talk show in Green Bay on WLUK-TV. "Johnson and Folks" was a daily hour program that focused on interviews with personalities. "My relationship with the station was a bit strained. They didn't take kindly to the ~act that I spent $5,000 a month flying in celebrities to do the show. They just didn't "Seem to understand that nobody but a famous football players ever come to Green Bay." In February of this year, WZUU (a consistent loser in the mom-

The ZUU mangement is probably happy.MiIwaukee's seemingly unimprovfug AM airwaves have not been shaken up by an outrageous character like him since the middle 60's , when WOKY presented the golden pipes and dented trumpet of Barney Pip. The Legend has gone Pip one ~tep better. Gimmicks and audience participation have taken the place of shouting and musicless trumpeting. ' His -eargrabbing techniques are probably the best crowd pleasers. "All the gimmicks I use get listeners involved." Assinine things like "sending me the stupidest office memo pays off in listeners. I get loads of these every day from people who see them at the office, rip them off and send them in. I choose one and read it on the air. It gives people in the offices something to talk about and gets me more listeners the next day." The All Gone Machine is another involvement project. "When a husband, wife, girlfriend or boss screws up and does something -, the caller doesn't like, and if I think the bad guy deserves a scolding, rlllet the caller tell the story over the air and then start the All Gone Machine." Tlie machine is a combination of sounds that includes flushing toilets, firing machine guns, blasting cannons and w~rkjng trash compacters. It vicariously disposes of th.e unwanted human and satiates the blood lust of the caller. When a negative situation calls for a more drastic measure, he swings into action with his most successful ploy. rhe Larry the Legend Ding-a;Ling Yo-yo award (a Duncan profession~1 yo-yo and a plaque) is given to an individual who has trifled with the sensitivities of the Leg or a listener. It gets a big response. "A couple of months ago'; a Sentinel article said that a blind and crippled woman had , her furniture repossessed by Waldheim's. It got me ticked off, so I went on the air, talked about it and asked for some response . It was great. Over the air we set up a fund so callers could contribute money to get her stuff back. Within a day or so we had/enough to send a check to Stan Waldheim for the amount the l:l0Y owed. Stan Waldheim then sent a letter saying he had not been aware of the situation and he had contributed the same amount of the due bill to the society to prevent blindness. But quite frankly, I don't think he has any great love for me." One person he is always sending Ding-a Ling awards to is the Governor. The Leg calls him Governor Loser. Whether it has to do with taxes or the yet unsigned state budget, the Guv catches th'e flak. A couple of months ago, one of Lucey's administrative aides called the station and demanded to speak to the station manager about some comments made on the morning show. "It was incredible and a bit underhanded. This guy demanded that the station provide tapes of all the 'nasty' things I was saying about Lucey over the air. First of all, except for calling him a baby, I didn't and never would say anything slanderous about J:1-im--at least on the air. Everything I say is factual. I was mad that he didn't bother to call me himself." _ That episode- provided him with fuel for a number of shows. Just about everyone who called supported the Legend. Undoubtedly it made him more friends. A few weeks ago, the Leg sent "militant Indians" at the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota a case of yo-yo's for "the killing of two FBI agents." At a personal appearance at a shopping center, a young Indian woman handed him a note that mentioned his comments. A short discussion of the Native American movement followed .

she praised Bob Barry and walked off. It's surprising that he has not received much comment from feminists. He constantly refers to women as "pretties", "honey" and "lovely lady". ''I'm for equal pay and all that," he says, "but ' men should be able to have an all men's restaurant and a woman should take her husband's name. I debated that point one time' with a woman attorney and am willing to debate it anytime in the future:' Married 6 years, he has first hand knowledge. Although he entertains arguments from all sides, he shies from "extremists." One examplel is the Nazis in Milwaukee. "I blasted them for their 'back to Africa for Blacks' proposal. A couple of them showed up at the front door of the station and asked to be allowed to counter the things I hid. When their fearless leader (Tony Schmidt) came to talk on the air, he would only do so with his boJyguards. Imagine that, what a baby." Promotional contest abound. Later this week, he will give away . a live 6 foot shark. The w.inning contestant must provi~.te a last name for the shark. The first two names are "Jaws" and "Legend" : "God knows what the winner-will do with his prize." .' To promote "National Hot Dog Month" he is asking for nomi- . nees for the best hot dog. Entrants must submit the mqne of their ~: favorite show off and what the person did to deserve the title. The :. winner will receive a meaty tube--a Weisel's Balogna--comparable :; r w~th his/her~eigIit. No one deserves the meat as much as he does. ~ In May, at the disc jockey Greater Milwaukee Open Golf tourna- :~ ment, he punctuated his arrival by landing in a helicopter that ~ dropped 1000 ping-pong balls (with his nl;lme on them) on the ~ frrst tee. ~ Even though Bob BarrY and Gordon Hinkley still have Milwau- ~ kee's female morning radio listeners fIrmly in their grasps, the ~ Legend is making inroads. ~, "I may not have Barry's smooth delivery, but I'll out-promote -~ him. It's like I always say : Uyou can't baffle 'em with brilliance, ~ baffle 'em with bullshit." ~ ~

On the IDar by Marty Racine Ron Cuzner is the Midnight Rambler. His turf is WFMR radio in Mil-wau--kay. Say the word slowly, rolling each syllable off individually, and you have an idea of the deliberate, distinctive announcing style of Milwaukee's only full time jazz disc jockey. Cuzner presents six hours of jazz on "The Dark Side" of every Tuesday through Sunday from midnight to six a.m. from the cozy recesses of a third floor cubicle in FMR's studio on Capitol Dr. With his unique speaking delivery and thorough knowledge of his music, Cuzner has developed a large folldwing, a diversity of loyal listeners who, "for one reason or another (pause ),dig the darkness. ',' It's not easy to listen to him the first time. He's not your typical golden voiced baritone rattling off either a sexy or high octane monologue between records. He sounds affected, strange. But if you get used to him his rap becomes a smooth, concise link with the music. 1 Cuzner.doesn't look like he sounds on the air; with a burly, stocky build and geherous belly he fits the stereotype of a truck driver. Not that it matters, but it is surprising when you notice the dichotomy between Radio Personality and Actual Man . A dichotomy which; incidently, is one of the mystiques of radio broadcasting. In the one a.m. solitude of a balmy July first we trekked to jazz central and here comes Cuzner decked out in tank top, frayed cutoffs and barefoot. Looks like a pretty mellow job . But it's that weird announcing style. First questionjs,leW-ihe hell did he develop it. While a bluesy sax droned in the background Cuzner elaborated: "I think there's something disturbing to people who hear me for the first time ...and that's the articulatio,n. And the only reason it's disturbing is because the articulation is what

'k Side' with Ron 'Cuzner you should be hearing all day long from other people. Unfortunately, you're used to slurring in normal conversations and I don't slur. If there are seven syllables I'll give you all seven. People aren't used to that. "I don't know how I developed it. I think the lighting helps, the fact that I'm by myself, the fact that I'm conscious that it's two or three in the morning. I think being obsessed with the sound of your own voice helps---any jock who's working and does not admit to being obsessed with the sound of his own voice is full of shit, because that's what it's aU about. You're ego-tripping from the time you're on til when you get off. If you listen closely there's a rhythm to the words I use and I use many of the same )words night after night. But the rhythm of those words is never the same ... the placement, inflection are never the same. It sounds awfully conceited but I'!Ill trying to create something with that rhythm so I make music with my voice, like using as a horn to a background trio. I would try to fit as a tenor player with ~at music. I I don't use the background anymore but I'm still-doing, the same thing with my voice. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't." Cuzner was born in Racine 36 years ago and grew up in what he labels a white, WASP neighborhood where all the young dudes were infatuated with Bill Haley and Elvis Presley. At age 12 he was first introduced to jazz via a Count Bassie record. A simple twist of fate. And he's been into jazz happily ever after. Two years later he landed his first radio gig, and, as is the case in broadcasting, he apprenticed in various announcing capacities, including sports play-by-play. His first jazz show aired in Valparaiso, Ind. EigHt years ago he initiated the "Dark Side" at WTOS in Wauwatosa, and he's continued the same format at FMR. Would he consider leavIng Milwaukee for the jazz havens of C,hicago or New York? Not really: "Where ever else I'd go I'd either be fortunate to do what I'm doing now---in which case why leave---or I would move to a place where the Program Director would say no Coltrane, for example. I'd make more money but I don't need the hassle:- I've got the perfect set-up." No quarrel there. Cuzner enjoys freedom and influence rare to broadcasting. He acknowledges that he's not faced with compromises---not from s~ation management nor from record promo men. Most local sponsors, he says, have confidence in his judgement of music selection and allow his input on commercials ~road足 cast on his show. He writes many of them and ad libs of reads them live to retain the flow with the music. There are a few exceptions: " Agenc'ies in New York and Chi, cago have heard the program. They don't know what I'm trying to I create ,and they say, 'hey, man,. just run the tape' (referring to a Pabst commercial) not realizing that tape is probably going to piss off more people than make them buy beer. The guy who has , an agency here in town is more hip to the show and wants the spots to fit." In contrast to television, radio is an intimate medium. TV obligates a focus on that little screen tucked in a comer of its environment. Radio is multi-spacial, permeating; it comes to you. Ideally the listener feels a one-ot- one communication with the announ-

MOVlE: Christmas in July-This is Preston- Sturges' second film ; made in 1940. He wrote the screenplay and directs Dick Powell (surprisingly enough, he's godd) and Ellen Drew in a comedy about an underpaid clerk and his wife trying to get by on $40 a week. Suddenly, thru a series of practical jokes and the vagaries of fate , the couple thinks they a;e the beneficaries of a windfall, and soon wind up on a treadmjII of credit spending that reaches dizzying heights. The plot is loaded for the Sturges' specialty: satire and razzberries at the American way , 路 of living. Very fumiy. At 2 and 8 pm., UWM Union Cinema, ~5 cents .

Which brings up an interesting point. Jazz is begining to seep into the musical mainstream nationwide . It's becoming respectable and acceptable. It's certainly influencing rock, where today the record factories are Icranking out all kinds of weird blends of rock and jazz, many of which fit neither category. Maria Muldaur has recorded with Benny Carter, Phoebe Snow has teamed with Teddy Williams and Zoot Sims and Joni Mitchell has been backed by by Tom Scott and the Crusaders.

It had nothing to do with the quality of the music, but the kids bought it and that was crucial. "One of the hang-ups was always labels.

"I think what's happening to jazz is symptomatic of what's happening in our culture. The culture is going back to a conservative way of life, of looking at things--having your own garden, baking your own bread.

Most of the.hypesters masquerading as music experts are involved in rock an~ Cuzner predicts they'll be reluctant to latch on to jazz, despite its popularity growth. Rock dollars are still chasing new groups, new gimmicks, splashy promotions. When Charlie Mingus packed Teddy's four straight nights recently there was not one representative from his record company (Atlantic) attending to promote his aJbums. And Atlantic isjust down the road in Chicago. Mingus also has no agent to book him for radio interviews. When Fletche-r Henderson, a blackjazzman, was cooking in the small clubs of New York in the 30's he was known only to a hand· ful of jazz freaks. Now along comes Benny Goodman and his Big BaI)d of white faces at the same time-to play Carnegie Hall. Good· man hires Henderson to do the arrangements, bowls over New York sophisticates and vaults onto the center stage of American music while Henderson is left in the wings. . Cuzner relates another shining example of America's mus~cal caste system: "When Janis Joplin kill~d herself and Hendrix kil: led himself a tenor player by the name of Booker Irvin also died. Now it just so happens I was between jobs at TOS ana FMR and .the New York Times and the Journal made a big thing about Hendrix and Joplin but the fact that Irvin died of natural causes, no . one knew. Booker Irvin had been making fantastic music for 20 years and Joplin and Hendrix around three, four years, and that's a synopsis 0f what's wrong with the way this culture approaches this music. "I feel that Joplin may not have lasted had she lived. Hendrix may have, and Irvin definitely would have. He was what you'd call a journeyman tenor and the fact that his death we'nt unnoticed really bothered me at the time." With a healthy perspective on music and broadcasting Cuzner knows his place in the scheme of things. While toking on an everpresent Lucky Strike and emptying his thermos of coffee through· out the course of the show he reflects, "I've become too much of a night person. I'd never work days again. I'm all by myself. I've 'got my tank shirt and cut-offs--you don't do·that during the day no matter where you work.

During a camping trip in the Southwest in the Spring o'f 1970 two backpackers came over to ask us for some brown rice and Tang. Though today they seem like extremes of good and . bad eating, in those days they were our camping staples. We have long since dropped Tang from our supplies, trying instead to forage for our vitamin C. But rice and other grains remain a gpod basic for suppers around the campfire. Vegetarian eating lends it_selflto easy outdoor living because you don't need to worry about refrigeration as much. Grains, nuts and seeds, dried fruit, and sprouts can provide you with a compact, well-rounded food sup"' ply. Of course if you are as much of a food addict as I am you will also bring along a cooler full of eggs, cheese, fruit's and vegetables. . . One habit I have found helpful for short camping trips is to make mixes for favorite meals before departing. Like my favorite breakfast is oats, bulghur, and raisins so I store them in the same tin can and just throw some in the pot every morning. A camping supper I really like is BULGHUR PI.LAF (bulghur is great fo( camping because it cooks so fast):

Any dirt or foreign matter l'n the wound will prevent healing and must be gently removed. If there is none, bandage the injury... the blood will have washed.. it. A hurt that has not bled well should be cleaned with mild soap and water and bandaged. NQ other antiseptic is needed. " Here's a recipe that's really great for groups of kids of all ages.!

After last year's superb showing with CSN&Y and a solid new LP recently released, the expectations for this concert had to be high. StillS' working band for this tour is basically the same as the o;le he utilized on the newer cuts fronl! Stills, with lead guitarist Donnie Dacus taking on an equal share of lead vocals and guitar as well as leading the band itself. There were times when Stills and

Dacus seemed like a father/son duo; Stephen turning to Donnie with a "here's how it's done son" look during many of his breaks while Donnie bounced and grimaced with all of the flash and vitality of a mayerick n,ewcomer. Stills has groomed Dacus well. The riffs and songwriting talents have direct Stills influence' oozing out with no complaints. . r ) I

SIEGfRIED QUIN TET ': TRAIL 'BREAKING Siegfried's band appears to be the most ostensibly "free" one in Milwaukee , possibly also the most intense and turned on. Finally one sees a group which has digested the lessons of Ornette Coleman, Dolphy , Ayle :, Cecil Taylor, pr'obably AACM. etc .. and which goes on in the f, ce of all that with furious creative aplomb . generating the spirit 01 fiery interactive abandon which one expects from assured "free" bands and which locals here avoid like a swim in a boiling cauldron. First set;tmply demonstrated what this band can d9 with "free" origmal materi,,!. Trumpeter Brian Lynch's "Third Wish" opened in a more orthodo.xlY Ornette-ish vein and allowed him room to evidence mastery of t o!le 8: attack far and beyond what could be expected of your average 19-year old--he's one to watch out for. Siegfried's "Speak for Yourself' brought pianist Jerry Weitzer to the front line to double on ciarinet and was a high-interaction free-blowing vehicle, although "Free Breathing .F.estored" pulled out even more stops, Siegfried (normally an alto player) going to th~ piano with Cecil-ish tempestuousness and he & Lynch engaging in thing~ like mouthpiece-breathing ,d uos up front. To paraphrase Leroi Amaru Baraka Jones on Ornette Colem:m, things happen in Siegfried's band that couldn't happen in anyone else's around here . - And it's a young band which promises to outstrip itself even further. Second set the band turned its attention to older, often bop'pish material, a show of roots which all the more fi1:mlyentrenches their claim to move beyond them. Fats Waller's "Jitterbug Waltz" (such as was done by EricDolphy on one of his later ai, bums), Bud Powell's "Web City", Cparlie Parker's "Quasimodo"; tile upfro.nt original and the ground we've covered since, "These Foolish Things". tlie ballad outing of the evening, wherein Siegfried emerged with a kinky, wa\lery sound stressing upward dynamic shifts. But this band is too restless for straight ballads, as Siegfried soon enough cut the time--his can't-stand-still outbursts of dancing, body English and even instrumental prodding while offstage are indicative enough of the energy his band continually reflects. Tad Dameron's "Squirrel" was something of a flag-waving tourde-force, Siegfried's full-rush' alto turning even more molten as the

IT UP! The Bugle-American

There were a number of strange twists and surprises that made the entire show seem like less than you expected but not quite a disappointment. The volume level dl,lring,the electric sets was excessive; drowning the superb vocal possibilities that Stills, Dacus and Rick Roberts are certainly capable ofl~nd forcing the leads to painful levels on the high ends. If you could cut through the blasting there was some pretty fine stuff being shown by both of these guitarists. Stills somehow caught fire after years of on and off soloing on last year's tour and he's still burning. Dacus showed some fme slide technique and some fluent fast riffs. The choice of material was full of surprises. The electric version ' of ~'Love The One You're With" op ~ ned the. show on an enthusiastic note. Following the CSN&Y program, came "Wooden Ships", with Stills handling both parts of the opening dialogue. After a \ new Dacus tune came the first showing of the Stills ma(erial. "In . The Way" and "My Favorite Changes" both sported extended arrangements from the studio versions; giving both guitarists a chance . to stretch out on leads. The first electric set closed with a remade "Special Care" from the Springfield days. Vocally Stills rushed the song but his leadwork was inspiring. . The acoustic set was Stills alone on acoustic twelve and six string guitars, banjo and National steel guitar. The highpoints were the exceptionally controlled vocalS that he wasn't' showing durin.g the ' electric numbers and a warm stage presence (for Stills) that was especially charming during a splendid version of Fred Neil's classic, "Everybody's Talking." ' ~Word Game" was perhaps the stellar performance of the evening with sorpe stunning picking and a sincere I vocal performance .. "Down The Road" was rendered in a traditional blues performance on the National; Stills telling,the audience it was the first time he'd done that arrangement onstage. "Change Partners~' continues to grow as a lovely melQdy. Again the vocals were sensitive and strong. ' I After Joe Lala's introduction of the band, which included a bad joke about the Stray Gators, and a short funky blues progression led b'y keyboardist Jerry Aiello, Stills returned to help out on "Going To The Country" and they were off on another set that increased in volume as they went along. Rick Roberts was featured on his own composition, "Colorado" and proved to be one of the evening's biggest let.downs. His general aloofness on stage is supposedly characteristic, but his indifferent rendition of one of his best tunes was disheartening at best. Stills introduced "Turn Back The Pages" as ('the latest tune from Steve you can hear on the radio" and promptly blew the second verse. His vocals seemed to suffer during this set; missin'g altogether in crucial passages on the encore, an electric version pf "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes". "The Treasure" doesn't sound the same without AI Perkins doing his Eric Clapton leads on pedal steel, but Dacus threw in some tasty fast slide work to keep it interesting through the first pair of breaks. \ It was a mixed performance that left a lot of mixed feelings. Stills is getting back to his old self onstage; brash and hard (you ' know, a blues man). Some moments he seemed interested (the acoustic set had a few warm moments) but generally it seemed to be motions. The material could be excellent if appreciated at a listenable volume level. Vocally and instrumentally the band has many possibilities. Dacus is a good counterpart to Stills; offering I a bouncing enthusiasm that is directly countered by Rick Robert's boredom. Tubby Ziegler and George Terry supply the thick rhy-


thm section that Stills has always liked. Aiello is a fine organist; probably better than they're letting him show here. Joe Lala is still the best in the business as percussion for cash. 1t was O.K., but the Gators never got this loud.

Apparently, President Ford is unimpressed: People says: "So far Sinatra's overtures-and Sammy's pleas-have fallen on deaf ears."

Gprillii -James Taylor (Warner Bros.) This is an example of timely seasonal music. Everything about this record is laidback summer nights and lazy days; content to let the mind wander over the past and wallow kl the better aspects of the present. Every once in a while there's a subtle tension that rides along underneath the skin, but it's all for the sake of balance. There will always be doubts and moments of weakness, but there will also always be m)Jsic and love that will call you home. Taylor has refmed his singer/songwriter/ wanderer ~tance somewhat. He's a married father now who's more like a lighthou, than a seafarer. The urge to move keeps him wandering in his head; to places he's never been but would like to go ("Mexico"). There's always a moment of doubt in his domestic decisions ("I Was A Fool To Care") and even a fair share of temptation still in abundance ("You Make It Easy") but love has got him hooked and he wears J his condition well. Marvin Gaye's "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)" says it all; with Cady right there sharing in their premier common interest in a serious vein this time. "Mockingbird" was a light piece of fun and a funky single; this one's a sweet swaying tributr that shines with,the best of them both. The arrangements have taken on a streamlining since last year's Walking Man. Taylor is putting his guitar back in the center , of things where it belongs; counting on the old solid support from either Sklar/Kunkel or Weeks/Newmark as the rhythm section and utilizing the talents of Crosby / Nash, Carly, Lowell George and Valerie Carter to back him up with vocal support. His 'own vochls are smooth and assured; a trademark if you will. The crack ,production team of Lenny Waronker and Russ The Bugle American

Titleman have kept the arrangements uncluttered, tasteful and acce,ssible. There is a distinctive smoothness\here without the unpleasant slick aftertaste that gives the effort great depth. The material is James Taylor (which should explain it enough). Sure, the title cut may be "Knockin' Around The Zoo" to some extent, but listen to the changes it's gone through. "Mexico" is a fme characterization of its subject and should give J.D. Souther's piece by the same name a decent run for the best summer vacation tune oj the year. "Lighthouse" is another standout; helped by a highly inspired vocal, job by Crosby and Nash. Even Randy Newmim shows up on that cut! James hasn't been put to sleep by his

marriage . There's still a lot of questions knockin' around behind that happy voice. He's still wandering in his head; floating with his own emotional tides. He's also got his music together. On-top of it all,wllo can resist that picture on the back of thecover. ,-Barry Patton

The album was re~ corded in just four days, and there is a further feeling of intensity and drive that' trans,mits itself to the listener. . Rachel's ancestral and religious heritage has figured heavily in her lifestyle and her music. Born Carol Joy Magidoff, she adopted for varying periods of time four other names over the next quinter century, before re-assuming her favotite childhood nickname of Rachel. ' The great-grandaughter of a great Magid (a Jewish holy man who sang, danced and had visions), and the daughter of a Marxtst' singer-actress and philosopher businessman, Rachel was an unusual child, full of music and visions. Leaving home at 16, the next depade included drifting as a ,coffeehouse singer, marriage to ajazz drummer,motherhood, a 6-month stint as actress in "Hair," a television commercial, 2 years at the Integrated Yogurt Instigator (a spiritual organization in Hollywood) stuqying Hindu chanting and Ihdian classical singing, U2 years as a welfare mother in San Francisco singing on street corners, and transcontinental drifting once agai? Finally, 2 ye~s ago, Rachel met John Simon who worked to produce both her first album Re~gees and the present one.

est because they're in direct competition with the home town boys, the Fine Arts Quartet, which has recordings of all but one of the same quartets on the market at the exact same price. In the Fine Arts vs. Budapest competition, the Budapest comes out 1-1-1. The tie is the Fine Arts single of Schubert's quartet number 13 which is paired with Brahms quartet number 3 on an Everest cheapie. The Budapest recording takes more time, and it's on two sides instead of one. The reason is that the Budapest takes some repeats that the Fine Arts skips. It comes down to a personal preference call. .A lot of people think Schubert's quartets .are too long, which makes the Fine Arts version better for them. If you like Schubert's "heavenly length" (Schumann used the phrase), then go with the Budapest. The Fine Arts quartet comes out better on the Haydn set. There ·are two types of Haydn quartets--those with names and those without names. .The ones with names are exactly the same as the ones without names except there are so many of them things that the names are the on} ly way to keep them straight. Opus 76 contains' three quartets with names: the "Quinten" (no. 2); the "Emperor" (no.3); and the "Sunrise" (no. 4). The three named quartets are standbys in the repetoire. The other three get recorded only . when someone does the complete Opus 76, even though they're just as good as the named ones. The Fine Arts (Opus 76) Vox Box is a better deal than the Budapest because it's in stereo, which helps the fireworks in places like the first movement of the "Emperor" and gives a sense of movement in the slow movements, which, in cases like Opus 76, no. 1, can get pretty tedious in monaural. The two sets seemed equal on my favorite of the buncQ, no: 4, but the Fine Arts put more life into the first movement of no. 6 and the last movement of no. 1. . If you're interested in Haydn's quartets, the Opus 76 batch . is the best place to start, but do it with the Fine Arts version. (Note: the slow movement of no. 3 is based on a little Th.e Bugle American

ditty that later--much later--got turned into "Deutschland Uber Alles" which takes some of the fun out of it. But that's not Haydn's fault). The winner on the Budapest side is their rendition of Schubert's quartet no. 14 in d-minor, also known as "Death and the Maiden." It's my favorite quartet , and my, favorite recording is the Smetena Quartet's no longecavailable version on the defunct Artia label. The quartet needs a balance of brutality and syrup-the sweet sections, particularly in the corner movements, have to have a menace much like that in Dracula's voice in the early parts of a vampire movi~, where the old neck-biter is welcoming some poor sap to his castle. The idea is to play some of the most beautiful melodies ever written in such a way that they scare the hell out ' of the listener. Schubert's quotation from his song "der Erlkonig" in the last movement (the ErlkoI!ig, or Erlking, is an evil spirit who kills a sick little boy in the song) is the best example of the technique. The Erlking's song needs schmaltz to work. ,The Fine Arts keeps the song spectral, the Budapest--the difference

is actually very slight--somehow 'gives it more substance. The clincher, though, is right in the opening measures. The opening of the quartet is supposed to hit the listener over the head. The Fine Arts quartet downplays the first few measures and doesn't let loose until the fortissimo about 35 measUres later. The Budapest lets you have it right at the beginnin~ The Fine Arts version ,'gives more kick to the crescendo that builds to the fortissimo climax, but the Budapest performance makes it clear wnat's going on right from the start. What it all comes down to 'is this: as long as the Supraphon gang in Eastern Europe continues to nest on the Smetena quartet's performance of Schubert's no. 14, the Budapest's is the best one going. There',s no way to buy it without quartets 13 and 15, and the renditions of both of those are pretty good anyway. But it you're in the market for Haydn's Opus 76's, get the Fine Arts Vox Box. -Ed Goodman

I (ZNS) The I:.ondon Daily Mail reports that Jackie Onassis is considering an offer of $1 million to play the part of herself in 'a movie on Aristotle Onassis. The Daily Mail's movie correspondent Roderick Gilchrist reports that Jackie is "fairly keen" on taking the part. The movie, to be called "Tycoon," will feature Anthony Quinn as Onassis.

(ZNS) Believe it or not, a twenty-five year old Walt Disney movie has been cut to please movie censors. The movie in question is "Treasure Island," but before you go running out to the theaters, there's no X-rated drama invqlved. It seems that Disney' productions has a policy of never releasing a flick without a "G" rating, and the "Treasure Island" reissue was assigned a "PG" (Parental Guidance Suggested) rating. To solve the dilemma, a scene where someone gets shot in the head will be cut, and the movie will get its "G" rating.
