Light sculpture by Stephen Knapp; top, ART Santa Fe vernissage, 2012
Art on a global scale
Bringing together exhibitors from four continents, ART Santa Fe retains its position as the city’s enduring international art fair. It opens with a gala champagne vernissage from 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, July 11. Exhibitors this year include gallerists from France, Spain, Japan, Katmandu, Mexico, and the United States. Local venues Zane Bennett Contemporary Art, Jane Sauer Gallery, and the New Mexico Museum of Art join this year’s fair. New international exhibitors include Moscow’s Khankhalaev Gallery, 31 Galerie from France, and S.O.L.O. arte from Mexico City. Albuquerque’s Park Fine Art brings back Korean paper making for the fair’s popular How Things Are Made demonstrations. In addition, Colorado-based print publisher Oehme Graphics presents demonstrations on monotypes and etchings. ART Santa Fe’s Project Spaces also return, with installations by sculptor Martin Spei, BOMA Modern, and others. Stephen Knapp’s dazzling, prismatic light sculpture is also on view. The keynote speaker this year is former agent and founder of the FBI’s Art Crime Team, Robert K. Wittman. Wittman wrote Priceless, a real-life thriller covering his career as an sleuth investigating high-profile art thefts and other crimes. His talk is at the New Mexico History Museum (113 Lincoln Ave.) at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, July 13. Tickets are $15. Tickets for the gala vernissage are $100. VIP passes cost $125 and include admission to the vernissage, unlimited access to the fair through the weekend, and admission to the invitation-only Art in America party at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, July 12, at the Farmers Market Pavilion (1607 Paseo de Peralta).

Dinner Thursday - Saturday Breakfast & Lunch Tuesday – Sunday
The astrological mood is relaxed, sociable, and curious this
holiday, with a few trust issues and technical snafus sprinkled around the edges as communicative Mercury retrogrades and challenges intuitive, confusing Neptune. Sparks fly easily — both the emotional kind and those of fireworks — so enjoy with care. Feelings run hot and fast as Venus semisquares Mars. Since we can’t quite find the right words to share our feelings, we may use many of them. Mercury retrograde helps us dig up information about the past but can also make it hard to get the whole picture. Instead, concentrate on creating healthy, transparent guidelines for the future, with government, workplace, or friendships. The weekend begins funny and talkative; we are not really interested in going deep. Keep it fast and light. The mood grows more internal and domestic late Saturday and Sunday, and on Monday a new moon in Cancer helps start a new cycle in hearth and homeland. Underlying all summer is a seasonlong grand trine between pragmatic Saturn, philosophical Jupiter, and idealistic, inclusive Neptune that calls us to walk our talk. If we spout spiritual values and act selfishly, we’ll be called on it. Conversely, if we find a way to get practical and apply our most inclusive beliefs, we’ll find it is good business. Friday, July 5: It’s a friendly day; people just want to chill. If close relationships feel abraded by different timing and priorities as Venus semisquares Mars, give people room, understanding, and don’t take it personally. Drive carefully tonight, transportation can be tested by snafus, alcohol, and water damage.

“The Mortgage Experts”
Saturday, July 6: Morning is funny — impatient and a tad impersonal — as the Gemini moon conjuncts Mars; people may be guarding their tender hearts. Midafternoon wanders pleasantly but inefficiently. Tonight, as the moon enters domestic Cancer and conjuncts Jupiter, share warmth over dinner and late into the night, but respect people’s boundaries. Sunday, July 7: Make healthy changes to the home’s emotional and physical landscape. If we don’t feel safe, we may act out, act like we don’t care, or look for retail therapy as Venus squares Uranus as a self-protective moon in Cancer opposes Pluto. But we do care. Choose carefully what needs to be released and what needs to be fought for and nurtured. Monday, July 8: A new moon in deep-feeling Cancer can bring a fresh cycle in our heart; let’s make it a healthy one. Emotions overflow as we feel the woes and joys of the world, not just our own experience. Look for an opportunity to share gifts and wisdom learned the hard way as Chiron and Venus aspect the moon’s nodes.

Tuesday, July 9: Begin a short-term project of the heart as the sun and Mercury conjunct under a Leo moon. The morning flows more smoothly. Use this window to tackle time-sensitive tasks, even though feelings and egos are a bit touchy. Find beauty and make the most of circumstances tonight. Wednesday, July 10: If people speak in hyperbole to get their point across, look for the true feelings underneath as the moon conjuncts Venus in expressive Leo. Pardon some temporary narcissism and be generous with affection. Rest tonight if feeling fractious. Thursday, July 11: If friction arises early on, breathe through it and be safe. Tell good stories at midday; when the plot twists, choose a good road. The afternoon is more efficient as the moon enters mental Virgo, but unknown factors can challenge our judgment. Watch out for detours, sloppy conditions, and defensive people. ◀ www.roanrobbins.com PASATIEMPOMAGAZINE.COM
In Other wOrds book reviews A Fort of Nine Towers by Qais Akbar Omar, Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, 389 pages What most Americans know about Afghanistan can be summed up with dusty, broken stereotypes of women in burqas and men in turbans, the crushing hand of the Taliban, and the bombed-out residue of decades of war. But it was not the Russian bombers, or the English before them, or even the zealots that created the worst havoc for modern Afghanis. Qais Akbar Omar reflects in his autobiography that during his childhood and adolescence, what became known as the country’s “civil war” was inexplicably brutal. Most of his book takes place in the late 1990s, when Russia had finally stopped pursuing its Communist agenda in Afghanistan. In the chaos of that void, warring factions set about to destroy one another — and ended up taking out everything in between. “Our country was being destroyed more every hour, by factions whose leaders slaughtered thousands during the day, then talked like holy men on their broadcasts during the night. ... Day killers; night liars,” he writes. Omar’s memoir is simple and unencumbered by flowery prose. It’s as if the author, 29 at the time of writing, has closed his eyes to recall the essence of events that are burned into his memory from age 7 to young adulthood. He chooses both chilling and loving details that convey his emotion without cluttered analysis — describing his family’s brief return to life as nomads in the Hindu Kush mountains with the same forthright elegance that he uses to explain how a murderous commander’s commandeered house in Kabul smelled like a butcher shop because of a pile of human heads the man was collecting in a pit. Omar spoke Dari and Pashto until he learned English to get a job as a translator for Americans who were pouring into Kabul after 2001. He is now working on a MFA in creative writing at Boston University. The author never looks back from some hindsight place of wisdom. Instead, Omar plunges through this difficult coming of age with a linear thread. First, Kabul was like a garden. His early childhood of kite flying and apple orchards, however, is replaced with atrocity. He recalls that his family spent weeks “trapped in one room like mice in a hole” as rockets rained from the sky and sniper bullets narrowed in on everything that moved. About half the book is devoted to the family’s time on the run, camping along a river, depending on the hospitality of strangers and even finding a cave behind an ancient sculpture of Buddha to seek shelter. “But the war never stopped chasing us,” he writes, noting later that “the country grew increasingly poor, dismal and isolated.” Important figures in the work are Omar’s father, a rug merchant, and his steadfast mother, who holds her family together even as she’s on the verge of losing them. Omar is captured and tortured at least three times, each time disappearing from her sight and alive only in her prayers. He doesn’t tell her — or anyone — what really transpired in these dark times, until now. There is an ache in his soul, he writes, as if these things happened yesterday. A reader looking for a lesson in the politics or the war strategies and territorial changes in Afghanistan during this period will not find it here. Omar doesn’t dwell on dates of battles or identifying which faction was led by whom or what it claimed to stand for. His perspective is from the civilian, trapped in what seemed like an infinite war zone. Cease-fires are key points in the plot, but it’s not important for Omar to explain why or how they occur, just that they allow some measure of respite. The last section of his narrative finally gets to the Taliban takeover of military and civic affairs. By then, it’s easier to understand why the “illiterate peasant extremists” offered something desirable even with their horsewhips and public stonings. “Now we had peace in Kabul, and we did not see blood and corpses and body parts on the streets anymore. But it was an unhappy peace, a frightened peace,” he writes. A different kind of strange peace has more or less come to Afghanistan of the book’s epilogue, although there’s no real sense of what will happen next. From where Omar stands on the roof of the house that the book’s title references — the Fort of Nine Towers — he watches American and British bombers hit targets with much more precision than the low-tech warring factions, yet he quickly determines that this warring isn’t good for the people of his nation either. President Barack Obama has said he aims to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan by the end of next year. — Julie Ann Grimm
PASATIEMPO I July 5 -11, 2013
SubtextS My favorite Big Year: Priyanka Kumar’s new novel For birders, embarking on a Big Year is a serious undertaking, with the potential to fracture personal relationships as the competition to see or hear the largest number of bird species in a calendar year heats up. Santa Fe resident Priyanka Kumar, a writer and filmmaker, has taken on competitive birding in her new novel, Take Wing and Fly Here (Sherman Asher Publishing) — the first book in her New West trilogy, in which she explores humans’ changing relationship with the natural world of the American West. In the first installment, J.K., a graduate student in physics and avid birder, is torn between his birding ambition and his love for his undergraduate girlfriend, Anne Marie, who smells like lilacs and has certain material expectations of him. Kumar will read from Take Wing and Fly Here at 6 p.m. on Thursday, July 11, at Collected Works Bookstore (202 Galisteo St., 988-4226). The reading includes a discussion by the author about birding and storytelling as well as a slideshow of her bird photography, and it concludes with a clip from her feature documentary about director Satyajit Ray, The Song of the Little Road, featuring Martin Scorsese. Kumar, who has taught filmmaking at the University of California Santa Cruz, has received numerous awards for her work, including the New Visions/ New Mexico Award and a Panavision Filmmaker Award. Poems plus: ArtFest13 Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Louise Glück reads with Santa Fe poetry powerhouse Dana Levin at the Santa Fe University of Design’s O’Shaughnessy Performance Space at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 9, as part of SFUAD’s ArtFest13. The festival continues on Thursday, July 11, with a reading and book signing by poet Jon Davis, director of the low-residency MFA program at the Institute of American Indian Arts, and memoirist Emily Rapp, author of Still Point of the Turning World and Poster Child. SFUAD is located at 1600 St. Michael’s Drive. For information, call 473-6200. — Jennifer Levin

Rock and roast
It all began with Kaldi the Ethiopian goatherd and his dancing goats. According to a legend whose printed origins date to the 17th century, Kaldi noticed that his goats became more vivacious after eating a certain red berry. A wary monk, after hearing this information, threw Kaldi’s proffered beans into the fire. The bewitching aroma of the roasted beans made him rethink his skepticism, so the two men retrieved the beans, pulverized them, and added them to hot water for consumption. Thus coffee was born. “Coffee is culture, ever since its creation,” said Todd Spitzer, co-owner of Iconik Coffee Roasters (1600 Lena St.), Santa Fe’s newest caffeinated watering hole. “Politics and revolutions are created out of coffee shops. Music movements, artistic movements, poetic movements, political movements — they start in a coffee shop because people are getting together and talking.” A lot more than talking occurs in many coffee shops. In fact, while Spitzer was sharing his thoughts with Pasatiempo on a recent Tuesday night, the band Jaill provided a blaring live soundtrack. The Milwaukee-based rock quartet would be a good catch for any small-town venue, being on the Sub Pop roster (one of the biggest labels that can still lay claim to being indie), and the band and Iconik seemed well matched. The harmonious relationship between music and coffee shops is nothing new. History abounds with examples of performers, both obscure and famous, serenading patrons as they drink Kaldi’s preferred refreshment. But in Santa Fe, with more and more local bars stumbling in recent months — Stats, The Underground at Evangelo’s, Legal Tender, and Ore House at Milagro have all either closed or are reorganizing — coffee shops are increasingly filling the void left by these more traditional music venues. Iconik joins the ranks of Betterday Coffee (905 W. Alameda St.) and 317 Aztec (317 Aztec St.) as performance spaces that lie somewhere between bars and house venues. Of the three, Betterday is the most music-oriented, having an actual stage in the back of the room and a track record of multiband shows

that extends more than a year. Aztec can claim consistency, hosting a weekly open-mic session on Tuesday nights as well as the occasional singer-songwriter showcase. Iconik, however, currently shows the most eagerness to become a vibrant mainstay of local music. “We want to get a beer and wine license and actually stay open [later] and serve food. Then the music will be appropriate for the crowd,” Spitzer said. Hosting bands was not part of the original intention for the space. But Spitzer
Show promoter Alex Pozo joked that his original goal was to turn Betterday into “The CBGBs of Casa Solana.” explained that after putting on a weekend of successful shows in June for local band Evarusnik, Iconik was immediately inundated with requests from other people wanting to play or produce shows there. In this category is promoter and KSFR deejay Alex Pozo, who organized the Jaill show. Pozo has plenty of insight regarding the coffee-shop music experience, having booked bands at all three of the places mentioned above. After arriving in Santa Fe, he spent a few years bemoaning the lack of live music opportunities in town, especially for touring bands. “I felt like a hypocrite after a while, so I thought, well, I’ll try doing something. And it was so easy,” he told Pasatiempo. Pozo first brought bands to Aztec, where he was working at the time, and then, starting last summer, put on a series of successful shows at the newly opened Betterday. Driven by a DIY approach, he faces the occasional out-of-pocket expense due to the unofficial nature of the work. However, for him this disadvantage is offset by the opportunity to showcase underexposed music. “I never did it for the money. I wanted to promote bands that I felt needed to be heard, like Luke Carr,” a rock musician who was formerly in the band Pitch & Bark but now focuses on solo work. One obvious advantage coffee shops hold over bars is that people don’t have to be of drinking age to get onstage or even through the door. Pozo stresses that he prefers his shows to be all-ages. “When I started at Betterday, it was the kids from 15 to 18 who were really grateful there was a show there — and also really shocked and surprised.” This demographic continues to be strong at Betterday; during a June 22 hip-hop show, fans under 21 were out in full force. For some, however, the inherent downfall of all-ages venues is that many late-night music audiences want a buzz from alcohol, not caffeine. When asked whether the availability of liquor impacts the show experience, Pozo seemed to think that the issue was mostly one of expectations. “There’s a stigma between coffee shops and bars already. When people think of coffee shops they’re like: It’s probably gonna be something laid back, semi-acoustic, low impact.” But shows like the Betterday hip-hop showcase and Jaill’s Iconik appearance overturn the assumption that coffee shops only play host to sweater-clad folk singers or beat poets. Referencing the famous New York City punk club, Pozo joked that his original goal was to turn Betterday into “the CBGBs of Casa Solana; I book for the standing-up audience, not the sitting-down one.” His is just one approach, however. The underlying reality is that by providing space for performers to set up and space for listeners to assemble, coffee shop venues offer the two most basic essentials for all types of live music. Providing space to sit down and space Jaill (for humans or goats) to dance is just a bonus. ◀

rock conventions, but the lo-fi aesthetic adds a sense of angst.
bASS DrUM OF DeATH Bass Drum of Death (innovative leisure) If it weren’t for the intentionally poor audio quality of Bass Drum of Death’s recordings, the band would sound like your average alternative-rock group. The Mississippi two-piece’s self-titled LP maintains their presence at the forefront of the lo-fi movement, which backpedals from the clinical crispness and rigid clarity provided by digital recording advancements. Even though there are plenty of archival instances of early alternative/grunge bands that approach the inaudible, gone are the days when bad recordings resulted purely from lack of skill or decent equipment. Emotion is at the forefront in BDoD songs like “Shattered Me” and “Such a Bore.” Structurally and melodically, these songs follow intentionally straightforward rock conventions that at times border on the anthemic, but the lo-fi aesthetic adds a sense of angst that is further enhanced by the generally forlorn lyrics. “I Wanna Be Forgotten” ends with the words: “I don’t wanna be a good kid/Just tell me what to think/And I wanna be forgotten/When I’m gone you’ll have a drink.” This sort of self-effacing insecurity seems oddly in conflict with such an over-the-top approach to sound creation, but it resonates with the idea that sometimes shouting out one’s grievances is more about personal release than being heard. — Loren Bienvenu
KAnye WeST Yeezus (Def Jam) Kanye West is one of the world’s greatest music producers, but he seems content to be known not as the new Phil Spector or Quincy Jones but as the next controversial rapper in a lineage that includes 2 Live Crew, Geto Boys, and Eminem. He isn’t dumb; he knows this stuff generates the most publicity. With Yeezus, people are talking about the album’s misogyny, racism, and uncomfortable conflation of civil-rights imagery with locker-room talk (in one song West boasts, “I put my fist in her like a civil rights sign,” while in another he samples Nina Simone’s iconic take on “Strange Fruit” for a song about the inconvenience of alimony) — while mostly ignoring the glorious bursts of creativity found in its bedrock of sound. If only there were an instrumental version of it. Enlisting everyone from Daft Punk to Rick Rubin to Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, West has crafted a bracing hip-hop album that branches out to soul, dancehall, and electronic dance music, and contains an early stretch of exhilarating pop that nods to Gary Glitter’s “Rock and Roll Part 2,” horror films, Hungarian pop music, and much more. No matter how much music you’ve consumed, you’re going to hear something in Yeezus that you haven’t heard before. Unfortunately, the more music you’ve heard, the more you’ll roll your eyes over the lyrics. — Robert Ker

ON STAGE Folk camp hero: Jaime Michaels r Ker ck her
The collaboration between singer-songwriter Jaime Michaels and producer Jono Manson has been a fruitful one. On Friday, July 5, Michaels launches the release of his ninth studio album, Unknown Blessings — his eighth completed with Manson’s aid. The album is a follow-up to the 2011 New Mexico Music Awards Album of the Year, The Man With the Time Machine. Michaels’ style of folk music is contemporary and contemplative, with an emphasis on straightforward clarity and intentionality. The new album expresses his love for the Kerrville Folk Festival, and its sale benefits the teen music camp run by that organization. For the release show, Michaels is joined by Ben Wright on guitar, Josh Martin on bass, and Tom Adler on banjo, with Jose Ponce opening. Tickets are $15 in advance from www.brownpapertickets.com and $18 at the door. The music begins at 7:30 p.m. at Garrett’s Desert Inn (311 Old Santa Fe Trail, 982-1851).— L.B.

Cristianne Miranda sings Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday
recent transplant from Los Angeles, jazz singer Cristianne Miranda landed her current residency at La Casa Sena Cantina as a result of karaoke night at Rouge Cat. “I was singing ‘The Lady Is a Tramp,’ and sort of bringing the house down with all these youngsters there,” Miranda told Pasatiempo. After she finished, one of the cantina’s longtime singers came up to her and said, ‘Well, anyone who can get that much applause at karaoke for singing a jazz song needs to come audition where I work.’ ” Miranda auditioned last September and soon became part of the venue’s long-running singing-waiters program, where she now performs five nights a week. In addition, she collaborates with Stars Never Fade Productions, an organization that pays musical tribute at the Cantina and other venues to “singers who are famous and have since passed.” In March, Miranda donned the role of Peggy Lee and was backed by pianist Bert Dalton, bassist Milo Jaramillo, and drummer John Trentacosta. On Sunday and Monday, July 7 and 8, she undertakes the even more ambitious project of channeling Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday in the same evening.
PASATIEMPO I July 5 -11, 2013
How does one go about impersonating two of the greatest jazz singers of all time? In Miranda’s case, it’s more a matter of interpretation than impersonation. “I’m picking out certain recordings that they did and doing the exact arrangements, but I’m doing them as myself, with my own interpretations of those songs.” She pointed out that, being a professionally trained jazz singer, some of her renditions will sound similar to the originals because of her own affinity to the legends — “especially Ella Fitzgerald.” Miranda’s career as a vocalist began at age 5. One of her teachers noticed her early singing talents and requested special permission to put her in an after-school choir. At the time, the family was living in England, where she benefited from a school system with a strong foundation in the arts. Over the years, she continued singing in choirs, eventually joining a professional children’s choir that performed at the Royal Albert Hall and on television. When she reached her teen years, everything changed. “When I was 16, we moved to Lake Tahoe, Nevada, which was a huge and very strange culture shock.” After a brief period of acclimation, she found herself in the spotlight

once again, pursuing both music and theater in high school, followed by college at Pepperdine University. As an aspiring actor in 1990s Los Angeles, Miranda became a regular on the open-mic scene. One night, on a whim, she requested to sit in with the Paul Turner band, which was the house band at the Hotel Nikko in Beverly Hills. After singing one song, she was asked to do another. Then the bandleader informed her that he had just fired the singer, who happened to also be his wife. “He asked me how many jazz standards I knew, and I knew very few, but thought I would embellish and say 10. Before I could answer he asked, ‘Fifty? Sixty?’ and I said, ‘Yes!’ ” According to Miranda, Turner’s response was immediate. “You’ll be working four nights a week and on Sundays you’ll be fronting a 14-piece big band,” he said. So began her headlong foray into the world of jazz. Before long, she knew far more than 50 standards and was performing them in venues throughout the city. Last year, feeling that she had capitalized on most of what Los Angeles had to offer, Miranda moved to Santa Fe — a change driven in part by tragedy. “I had a fire, and my apartment burned down in Beverly Hills. I lost everything I owned in the whole world, and my dog died in the fire as well. It was really traumatic.” Santa Fe offered a place for healing. “I thought, what a good place to just leave Los Angeles and bring my two dogs and just chill out. Basically, from the moment I landed, it’s been anything but chilling out.” Currently, her time is monopolized by the upcoming Stars Never Fade show. She is responsible for putting together the program. Fortunately, she said, the shows tend to formulate themselves. After listening to the songs over and over again, both at home and in her car, she generally comes to a natural decision about their order and how she wants to perform each one. Miranda takes special consideration with the Fitzgerald material by listening to the horn parts, which helps her decide when to scat. Although the practice of scatting predates Fitzgerald, she is widely considered to be one of the masters of the form. Miranda plans to scat over some of the standards in Fitzgerald’s repertory, like “Mack the Knife,” a song whose words Fitzgerald famously forgot during a 1960 concert in Berlin. Miranda intends to recreate that performance verbatim. For the upcoming shows, the singer hopes to balance Fitzgerald’s upbeat, fun, and swinging repertoire with Holiday’s darker work. “The Billie stuff is sort of heart wrenching,” Miranda said. She offered the poignant example of “Strange Fruit,” a song elegizing the victims of lynch mobs. Holiday’s rendition of “Strange Fruit” was highly controversial in its day, but in time it became one of her signature pieces. In placing the two artists side by side, Miranda is also taking into account their technical differences as singers. Much of Fitzgerald’s acclaim resulted from her impeccable intonation, vocal range, and musicianship. Holiday, on the other hand, was more interested in emotion than technique, as evidenced in songs like “Good Morning Heartache” and “Lover Man.” “She almost sounds like she is a little flat, a little pitchy. But the mood is so haunting and heartfelt that it’s just unbelievable.” After spending so much time studying the work and lives of the groundbreaking singers who preceded her, Miranda feels a connection with them that verges on the personal. It’s almost as though she has forged her own friendships with the singers. As Miranda undertakes the challenge of honoring them, she draws on their legacies for strength. “What’s funny is that Ella was friends with both Billie Holiday and Peggy Lee throughout her whole life. I thought to myself, Wow! It’s like the three of them are up there looking down on me saying, ‘Go on girl, you can do it!’ ” ◀

Summer Voices Santa Fe Desert Chorale
PASATIEMPO I July 5 -11, 2013
“We try to get creative with our programming,” said Joshua Habermann, director of the Santa Fe Desert Chorale, of the ensemble’s upcoming season. One program is devoted to music by or inspired by artists who were depressed, resided in asylums, schizophrenic, suicides, or hallucinators. Other concerts feature Renaissance-era madrigals, Americana, and music by French and Scandinavian composers. Habermann also directs the Dallas Symphony Chorus, a group of 175 amateurs, who sing masses, requiems, and other “huge, monumental” works. The Desert Chorale, with just 24 professional singers, generally performs smaller works. “It’s like tapas instead of a big meal,” Habermann said, speaking by phone from Texas. He said that coming to work with the chorale is like being handed the keys to the nicest sports car you can imagine. “These are really high-level people. They can do anything.” The casting of the chorale changes from summer to summer. About two-thirds of the singers are returnees. Others are drawn from auditions Habermann conducts in New York and Los Angeles. Some singers send recordings or travel to meet with Habermann in Dallas. Because of the reputation of the group, the director is able to select some of the best choral singers in the country. “I look for heart, voice, and brains. We’re a community, and I have to have the right personalities. I’m looking for people who are positive and who can be vulnerable as performers. This is not a gig where you rehearse and perform for one week. We live in close quarters. I need talent, but I can’t have any prima donnas. The singers have to be stars. They have to have the chops to hoot and wail, to be in front and rock it out. But they also have to hear and work cooperatively. It’s a rare singer who can do a demanding solo and then step back into the group and help create a seamless sound. I enjoy building teams.” The full contingent of singers performs two different programs at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi in Santa Fe and at the Cathedral Church of St. John in Albuquerque. Two other programs, held in the more intimate Loretto Chapel and First Presbyterian Church in Santa Fe, feature half the group — 12 singers. The chorale also participates in the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival this summer in a four-part series called Years of Wonder, featuring works by Schumann and Mozart and Book V of Gesualdo’s madrigals, published in 1611. The Road Home: Songs of America opens the chorale season on Thursday, July 11, at the Cathedral Basilica. The offerings range from Shaker songs to spirituals. Also included are works by American composer Shawn Kirchner (born in 1970) that were inspired by his love for bluegrass music. Morten Lauridsen (born in 1943), whom Habermann called “the dean of American choral music,” is represented by “Lament for Pasiphaë” from his Mid-Winter Songs cycle and “Sure on This Shining Night.” The second program of the season, Northern Lights, opens July 16 at Loretto Chapel. Habermann, who calls himself a “language person,” once taught Spanish at the high school level, lived in Sweden on an exchange program in 1985, and speaks fluent Swedish. Music on the program features composers from Sweden, Denmark, and Norway. Many people from Scandinavia are fascinated with lands with warm climates, so the music on this program includes the Lorca Suite, inspired
by the writings of the Spanish playwright and poet, and a piece called “Peze Kafé,” a traditional Haitian song arranged by Sten Källman. Other pieces describe unicorns, the obsessive celebration of the short-lived Scandinavian summer and, as Habermann described it, “sad stuff about Swedes crying in the forest.” Touched With Fire explores the link between the psychological states of composers and their works and features pieces by Francis Poulenc and Johannes Brahms, whose Fünf Gesänge, op. 104, describes “lost youth and autumn,” according to Habermann. Per Nørg˚ard (born in 1932) created a piece inspired by Adolf Wölfli, a Swiss artist and schizophrenic. He was locked in an institution and given one piece of paper a day, on which he created thousands of intricate drawings and poems. The program opens July 26 at Loretto Chapel. The full chorus, backed by pipe organ, cello, and a guest star, mezzosoprano Susan Graham, appears at the Cathedral Basilica on Aug. 10 and in Albuquerque the next afternoon, in a program called Romance to Requiem. The all-French program features the Requiem by Maurice Duruflé. Habermann described the piece as “one of the great works for organ and chorus.” The composer, who died in 1986, served as a choirboy in his youth, and Habermann said this lyrical piece evokes Gregorian chant. Graham also performs with the Santa Fe Opera this summer, in the title role of Offenbach’s La Grande-Duchesse de Gérolstein. At the Cathedral Basilica, Jonathan Dimmock, organist for the San Francisco Symphony, is at the keyboard, while Dana Winograd performs the cello part. The final program, The Triumphs of Oriana, features madrigals, Renaissance secular ensemble songs. The chorale highlights a chronological representation of this music, beginning with its Italian origins and moving on to its later blossoming during a period of English obsession with the form. The concert title refers to a collection of 25 English madrigals published in 1601. A benefit for the Desert Chorale takes place on Aug. 29 at La Posada de Santa Fe Resort and Spa. Sylvia McNair, a cabaret singer who has won two Grammys and has appeared in New York City at the Rainbow Room and at the Oak Room of the Algonquin Hotel, performs. The evening includes a cocktail reception, dinner, music, and an auction. ◀

Schools, streets, and bandstands made the sound of saxophonist
STACY DILLARD 22
PASATIEMPO I ????????? ??-??, 2013
isten to the involved post-bop music of Stacy Dillard, and it’s hard to believe he spent his time as a teenager listening to saxophonist Najee and other smooth-jazz artists. “I was also a fan of [hip-hop artist] KRS-One, even Tears for Fears,” he recalled in a phone conversation from his home in Brooklyn. “You don’t want to know all the stuff I was listening to.” Consider his sound — the saxophonist was heard in Santa Fe as part of bassist Curtis Lundy’s quintet last fall, and he has a handful of CD releases out (the latest is Good and Bad Memories on the Dutch label Criss Cross) — and it is hard to reconcile what you hear with his youthful jazz-fusion enthusiasm. The music embraces straightahead and progressive jazz. His tenor sound seems to spring from a variety of influences, some of which aren’t normally thought of together. At different times, he recalls Ornette Coleman and John Coltrane, two postmodernists that came at their music from different directions. At other times, he has something of Coleman Hawkins’ style in his play — not so much Hawkins’ spacious resonating tone but his ability to turn improvisations into rhapsody. On the other hand, he has something of Coltrane’s note-by-note phrasing, no matter how fast those notes are coming. Then there’s a sense of Coleman’s unique combination of harmony and melody — “harmolodics,” Coleman called it — that surfaces in the unpredictable intervals Dillard sometimes uses. Dillard also carries something of Coltrane’s spirituality in his moods and feel. His improvisations aren’t so much narrative as they are quests; there’s something in them that suggests a search. The one word most frequently used to describe his style is “mature.” Dillard’s approach to his instrument — he also, like Najee, plays soprano — is a product of both new- and old-school musical training. In an age when more and more jazz musicians are turned out whole by music academies and formal training, Dillard received something other than a conservatory education, gaining a working knowledge in high-school band classes and small college workshops. Much of his specialized training came on the bandstand after moving to New York City, where he’s been a sideman for a Who’s Who of band leaders. The streets served as rehearsal space. Raised in Muskegon Heights, Michigan, Dillard was more interested in sports than music as a student. But during the summer before his 16th birthday, he had an epiphany. “To this day I couldn’t tell you who I heard or what he was playing — I don’t know if it was alto or tenor — but I do remember how it made me feel. I was watching TV and there was this guy playing the horn and instantly I knew that’s what I wanted to do. So I asked my parents for a horn for my birthday. And they said, ‘Are you crazy? No.’ All my older siblings had played an instrument and then given it up so they kind of spoiled it for me.” Dillard concentrated on his other love: basketball. But he didn’t forget the horn. When he was 18 he saw an advertisement for instrument rental: 90 days for $90. “I was working at an electronics store and had some money, and I thought, here’s my chance. So I got it and just kind of ran away with it. Or it ran away with me.” While in college, first at Wright State University and then at Central State University (both in Ohio), Dillard heard the saxophonists that turned him away from smooth jazz: Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter and, yes, Coleman Hawkins. “I was listening to everybody, hearing what they did, trying to figure out how they sounded the way they did.” Wynton Marsalis came to Central State, heard Dillard play, and encouraged him to look him up when he came to New York. Another great, the late pianist Mulgrew Miller, came to Dayton to work with a group of middle-school musicians, and asked Dillard to come in and help keep their sound moving. “These kids were young, but they were serious. Mulgrew didn’t want me leading the tunes; he just wanted me to play along. I was like the pace rabbit in dog racing. Something to chase.”
In 2002 Dillard took up a friend’s offer to put him up in his Queens apartment. The saxophonist did his best to immerse himself in New York’s vibrant jazz scene. “I was going any and everywhere. My friend was a school teacher and couldn’t hang out late but I could. Sometimes he was getting up just as I was getting home. I didn’t know anybody in New York, but I made friends fast.” His first gig was in a church with the singer Pucci Amanda Jones. To make ends meet, he would play in parks and subway stops with the trio — bassist Diallo House and drummer Ismail Lawal — he appears with on Friday, July 5, at the Den in Santa Fe. “It was good money but we had to do more,” Dillard said. He was ready to leave New York when a call came in from drummer Cindy Blackman, who heard about Dillard from saxophonist J.D. Allen. Soon another came, from pianist Miller, who heard Dillard was in town. “A little exposure goes a long way,” Dillard said. Soon he compiled a list of performance credits with trumpeter Tom Harrell, trombonists Steve Turre and Wycliffe Gordon, drummers Victor Lewis and Ralph Peterson, the Mingus Big Band, and pianist Eric Reed, among others. In 2006, Dillard wanted to make a recording of his own. “I had a lot of music that I wrote and was ready to put some of that together with a band I’d been working with. We actually did [Elite State of Mind and cPhyve] on the same day. Some of the tunes we did at a studio nobody’s heard of. The last few tracks we did we set up some mics in somebody’s apartment. Almost all of them were one take. Considering all the things we were dealing with, it sounds pretty good.”
I’ve learned a lot about musicianship and the instrument from other musicians; I’ve learned from all the greats. But I want to sound like me. I don’t want anybody saying he’s a clone of such and such. I don’t go about it that way. - - Stacy Dillard
Dillard said he doesn’t try to approach his playing with any definite concept in mind. Rather, he just lets it go, playing in the moment and responding to his sidemen and the audience. “That is my concept,” he said, “not really having a preconceived concept. I studied a lot of saxophone players, and the thing I’ve come away with is that you don’t play clichés. So many people will push on you to sound like this or that, and it’s true that we all need to learn from the great players. What you learn from them is that they sounded like nobody else but themselves. I’ve learned a lot about musicianship and the instrument from other musicians; I’ve learned from all the greats. But I want to sound like me. I don’t want anybody saying he’s a clone of such and such. I don’t go about it that way.” And what about that label of “mature” that critics have stuck on his play? Dillard suggested that they’re mistaking confidence for maturity. “Or maybe it’s the same thing. I’m relaxed with what I do. My frame of reference is that there is no frame of reference. There’s no telling where I’m going to go, but I’m going somewhere. And there won’t be any clichés.” ◀

n Mark Adamo’s opera The Gospel of Mary Magdalene, which received its world premiere at San Francisco Opera on June 19, we get a brief glimpse of the title character in bed with Jesus, and that is something you don’t see every day. One might have anticipated that the city’s War Memorial Opera House would be besieged by fundamentalist picketers, but I didn’t see any. I guess word had seeped out that even the bedroom scene was timid, no more dramatically involving than anything else that would occur onstage that night. Adamo arrived at this San Francisco Opera commission with a strong résumé. He had scored a stunning success with his first opera, Little Women, which he wrote on commission for the Houston Grand Opera Studio, the group that unveiled it in 1998. It proved so popular that the company’s general director, David Gockley, then mounted a main-stage production of it, and the piece went on to crisscross the globe in more than 60 productions. In 2006, Gockley assumed the reins at San Francisco Opera, where a further Adamo commission seemed an obvious move. Opera aficionados anticipated the unveiling of The Gospel of Mary Magdalene with much interest, not just because of Adamo’s own achievements but also because, being married to John Corigliano, he is half of the opera world’s most eminent composer-couple. For Santa Feans, the event held specific interest thanks to several involved parties who also have important upcoming presences at Santa Fe Opera. The production’s director is Kevin Newbury, its set designer is David Korins, and tenor William Burden portrays the role of Peter; all of them will add their talents to Santa Fe Opera’s world premiere of Oscar this summer. Also among the leading singers is baritone Nathan Gunn, as Yeshua (which is to say Jesus), who is scheduled to sing the central part in Jennifer Higdon’s new opera Cold Mountain during Santa Fe’s 2015 season. For none of these (with the exception of Burden) did Mary Magdalene prove propitious, but one wonders if anyone would be able to make the piece truly stageworthy. At the heart of the problem is the libretto, which Adamo wrote himself. There was no mistaking his passion for the subject. He has read whatever he can put his hands on that deals with the noncanonical Gospel of Mary, a document (usually considered a Gnostic text) that probably dates to the second century and that tells the story of Jesus from the viewpoint of a woman named Mary, who was very possibly Mary Magdalene. Adamo knows the literature; he even includes 116 footnotes in his libretto, replete with the requisite scholarly citations. Nobody is harmed by this, but a libretto’s primary responsibility is not to convey reams of information, however precisely. Instead, it needs to present a story clearly

and compellingly, and it would be hard to argue that Adamo’s libretto succeeded in that regard. One senses the story he wants to tell: after Jesus rescues Mary Magdalene from punishment because of her sinful behavior, she becomes one of the groupies who surround him; but another of them, Peter, does what he can to exclude her from the apostolic circle because she’s not one of the guys. Simple. Clear. Interesting. But Adamo seems unable to resist eking out that central conflict with an immense amount of historical detail, and the dramatic crux gets buried in the onslaught. Then he frames the whole thing with a narrative overlay that involves modern archaeologists who are “digging into” the text, apparently to magnify how historical documents are assessed and championed — or not. Unfortunately, this outer story is presented chaotically. Who are these people dressed in clothes they bought at Sears in 1989, bumbling about this ugly environment that looks like it has been bombed out? Is this a homeless encampment? That would explain why they have a fire going in a garbage bin. But, maybe not: Why would they be arguing about correct versions of religious texts? Why are we hearing broadcasts of news reports in many languages? Oh, it’s about the discovery of ancient scrolls. Who is this lady wandering in dressed as if she just escaped from a Sunday school pageant? Oh, that’s Mary Magdalene, who inhabits the space that will
later be occupied by archaeologists — or, as Adamo says noncommittally in the libretto, “perhaps the site of an archaeological dig in Israel.” The details confuse the story, and the direction clarifies little. It is a talkative opera. Yeshua tends to utter portentous statements, repeating words annoyingly, probably for emphasis. He seems practically a New Age guru, sharing thoughts like: “When you’re not afraid to lose something,/Then you’ll understand/How to hold on to it.” For a while the projected supertitles display a sentence Mary Magdalene sings: “The only thing I wish I knew is what it is that I must lose you to find.” I sit transfixed, trying to parse these words that the libretto needed to make crystal clear in an instant. Characters talk a lot and do little. Even talking about doing something seems exciting in the context. A rare frisson of dramatic energy arrives in an exchange between Mary Magdalene and Peter, who has acted faithlessly vis-à-vis Yeshua: Mary: Still — you’re not a traitor. Peter: Do you think that’s true? Mary: If I cannot: Then I will act as if I do. And, oh yes: much of the text is cast in rhyming couplets or expansions thereof, which in the end seems more of an impediment than a delight. Sometimes the second half of a thought seems to
convey the vocal resplendence he often has in the past, and a listener was concerned to hear suggestions of a vocal wobble at times. Perhaps it was merely born of opening-night insecurity, or of overcompensation to project through the rich orchestration, or maybe the part lay higher than he might have wished. Short-Liszt few weeks ago the name of Ophra Yerushalmi resurfaced — an expert pianist I heard with pleasure on occasion in New York during the 1990s. She was a regular presence on the city’s concert scene, often giving recitals that included music by Franz Liszt. Since then, she has become a part-time Santa Fean and has developed a parallel career as a filmmaker. Her documentary Liszt’s Dance With the Devil, released in 2008, was scheduled to screen this week at the Center for Contemporary Arts. The event was postponed due to unexpected circumstances as this article was heading to press. We will let you know when a screening is rescheduled. Liszt tends to evoke extreme responses from otherwise well-balanced music lovers: they love him or they hate him. His reputation suffered for many years from the overrepetition of the more sensational chapters of his life and from the overexposure of a few of his compositions that are, frankly, not from the top drawer. Whether or not he is on your shortlist of favorites, it is an unassailable fact that Liszt was one of the most fascinating figures in the history of music. Situated at the vortex of the 19th-century musical swirl, he seemed to pack three lives into his time on Earth: first, as the unparalleled piano virtuoso of his day; then, as a searching musical thinker, honing his skill as a composer and promoting forward-looking music by others from his perch at the Weimar Court; and finally, as a senior eminence intent on looking inward, adopting a mystical stance of eccentric religiosity while fulfilling the responsibilities of a much lionized cultural icon. Yerushalmi clearly loves Liszt. She does not attempt to provide a comprehensive account of his life and works in her hour-long film, producing instead a more personal rumination that allows various pianists, historians, and other informed parties to share some thoughts on matters Lisztian, punctuated by wellchosen performance excerpts. It’s surprising how much she was able to pack into so short a span without making the film seem rushed or overloaded. Among the pianists who make appearances are Jeffrey Swann, Mykola Suk, and Oxana Yablonskaya, in addition to Yerushalmi herself, who graciously refuses to hog the spotlight. The American pianist Frederic Chiu offers thoughtful insights on Liszt’s transcriptions and plays a riveting excerpt from his piano version of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, demonstrating
exist only because it rhymes with the first half, after the Seussian manner, as in this scene sung by Mary Magdalene and Miriam (mother of Yeshua): And fifty years ago, there lived a rabbi; And he was named Hillel. He seemed to know the secret of a godly life. You’d ask him: he would tell. The music is attractive, nowhere more so than in a wordless chorus that accompanies Mary Magdalene’s washing of Yeshua’s feet. The score ranges in style but the fundamental influence seems to be movie music of the 1940s — Rózsa, Steiner, Herrmann — or maybe a touch of Richard Rodgers, though filtered through a modernist prism. Conductor Michael Christie oversaw it adeptly, but at first hearing no individual segments leapt out as extractable or particularly memorable. Of the singers, mezzo-soprano-on-the-rise Sasha Cooke turned in an affecting performance as Mary Magdalene with vocal security, and she projected the text with unimpeachable diction (not always to the text’s advantage). William Burden brought his intense, burnished tenor to the role of Peter, and his confrontations with Cooke provided nothing but vocal delight. Maria Kanyova rendered the soprano part of Miriam nicely, though the role proved dramatically eviscerated as the evening progressed. Nathan Gunn did not

some of the subtle artistry that was involved when Liszt turned a work for orchestra into one for piano. French pianist Wilhem Latchoumia delivers huge sound and stunning left-hand octaves while demonstrating Liszt’s extroverted side and then retreats to near silence for his late, puzzling Nuages gris. Liszt’s great-great-granddaughter Nike Wagner discusses Liszt’s reputation within her family (Liszt was the father-in-law of Richard Wagner). Poet Robert Pinsky adds a multidisciplinary flavor, and French critic and intellectual Jacques Drillon offers original thoughts about the modernity of Liszt’s pianistic style and his attitude that there need be no such thing as the final, definitive form of a composition. For music lovers, Liszt’s Dance With the Devil will represent time well spent. ◀

Sounds of Timbuktu Festival au Desert: Caravan for Peace concert Paul Weideman I The New Mexican
Wednesday, July 10, music fans will get an intense dose of desert — the Sahara — as the renowned Festival au Desert arrives in town. The occasion is not quite celebratory: the annual event, normally held in Timbuktu, Mali, was canceled there because of escalating civil war and brutalities committed by Islamic extremists. “This is the continuation of a conflict between north and south that was generated over centuries,” said Chris Nolan, one of the Festival au Desert organizers since 2006 and the owner of Clermont Music. “The festival was an attempt to bring everybody together into a neutral space and have them share their cultural traditions. It was pretty successful. Things could be much worse there. It really became a problem because of the outside influences related to religious fundamentalism and influences not native to the region.” The festival has always been a dynamic venue, presenting traditional nomadic Malian music; bands that incorporate rock, blues, and other genres; as well as emerging groups from around Africa and Europe. “Seventy-five percent of the people who perform at the festival are 26

from the north of Mali. Someone from the far north would be more characterized in their music having evolved over time and dramatically influenced by their time in refugee camps in the 1970s and the introduction of electric guitars.” Three performers from the Timbuktu stages play Santa Fe on July 10, offering quite a range of music. Billed as the Caravan for Peace concert and jointly presented by ¡Globalquerque! and the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market, it features Mamadou Kelly, Tartit, and Imharhan. Singer and guitarist Kelly comes out of a traditional Malian background but also mixes in some Delta blues. His band members play calabash (percussion), ngoni (West African plucked lute), and njarka (single-string fiddle). The Tuareg group Tartit is fronted by vocalist Fadimata Walett Oumar (known as “Disco”) and a collective of women who play traditional acoustic instruments and sing. “Tartit was last in this country 10 years ago; it’s difficult to bring them here because there are so many people,” Nolan said. “The group is really based in tradition, then the program changes into another reality as the group Imharhan comes forward.
That band is led by Disco’s brother, Mohammed Issa, and transforms the happening into the present with electric guitars. The so-called “festival in exile” is exposing a broader range of people to the music of the West African desert, but it’s also about promoting peace, tolerance, and understanding. “One of the primary songs that Tartit sang at the festival in 2012 is called ‘Democracy,’ ” Nolan recalled. “They’re all talking about it. Another artist named Khaira Arby sang ‘La Liberté,’ which was against enslavement and human trafficking, and in the middle of the song she sang ‘Peace, Peace, Peace.’ ” The folk art market kicks off Thursday, July 11, with a free celebration at the Santa Fe Railyard. The event — featuring food, kite flying, and
Youro Cisse, Baba Traore, and Mamadou Kelly
music demonstrations and performances — begins at 5 p.m. A 12-piece Zulu band from South Africa plays Maskandi music at 6:40 p.m., and then at 8:15 p.m. the West African Highlife Band takes the stage. Babá Ken Okulolo, that band’s leader, was first seen by American audiences as a member of King Sunny Ade’s African Beats, but music has been a part of his life since he was a child. His earliest tastes of song and drumming came from listening to his parents and elders growing up among the Urhobo people in the Niger delta region. “Our music held stories of our ancestors as well as stories of daily happenings,” Okulolo continued on Page 28

said in a telephone interview from his longtime home in Oakland, California. “We have music for marriages and for the time the young people are introduced into the world, for all kinds of events and the different aspects of life.” Okulolo has lived in the United States since 1985, but he still relates strongly to his homeland. His people traditionally used canoes for local transportation. Today many prefer motorboats — which requires money for gasoline. “It should be cheap, but everyday billions of gallons of oil are shipped out, and it is expensive for people in Nigeria to buy. Also, all of the oil spills have changed life in the area I came from, and it is hard for people to fish like they used to. Life is very hard for them to manage.” At age 8, Okulolo began attending Anglican missionary schools, but he also used a shortwave radio to listen to Afro-Cuban songs, American R&B and jazz, and Congolese music, and would sneak out to watch highlife bands. “Highlife music is the music from the West African club scene in the early 1960s, the music that the young Africans who were fortunate enough to travel abroad to study the various professions liked to listen to when they returned. It was first introduced from Ghana, and it was really good middle-class, guitarbased dance music.” His early musical career also takes in the Nigerian palm-wine, Afrobeat, and Afro-rock genres. As a young man, he toured with the highlife band Harmony Searchers before joining the big band of Dr. Victor Olaiya, a legend of the highlife music. After a few years, Okulolo formed the Afro-rock group Monomono with singer Joni Haastrup. He also worked with Afrobeat master Fela Anikulapo Kuti. He toured for two years with King Sunny Ade and made a pair of albums — E Dide in 1995 and Odú in 1998 — with the Nigerian singer/guitarist. Today, Okulolo leads the Afro-Groove Connexion and an acoustic band called The Nigerian Brothers, in addition to the West African Highlife Band. That group is made up of Okulolo on bass and four other musicians playing guitar, drumset, talking drums and percussion, and keyboards. The musical menu broadens further on Friday night ( July 12), with a concert by TradiSon, the house band at La Bodeguita del Medio restaurant in Havana. Musicians performing or giving workshops during market weekend (Saturday and Sunday, July 13 and 14) include TradiSon, the West African Highlife Band, Jalol Avliyakulov from Uzbekistan, Ihhashi Elimhlophe from South Africa, and Edmond Randriamanantena and Roger Randrianomanana from Madagascar. ◀

Arlen Asher Museum Hill Café, June 27
Here and now
rlen Asher is all about melody. During a long first set with guitarist Michael Anthony, drummer John Trentacosta, and bassist Michael Olivola on the patio of the Museum Hill Café, the saxophonist would reach back at different times during his improvisations and reference a song’s theme, using it as a touchstone before spinning off again in attractive variations. Playing some of jazz’s most familiar material, Asher turned the standards into something new, exposing the music’s possibilities — all the things the melody held — in ways that were both attractive and meaningful. Even during his solos’ most involved moments, one could grasp a sense of what he was doing in relationship to a song’s melodic lines. Yes, there were times he plugged in a blues note or phrase and moments that were something other than lyrical. Yet he never lost the mood or the message. Before the show, part of public radio station KSFR-FM 101.1’s monthly Museum Hill Café Jazz Series, Asher, standing in a nest of saxophones and flutes, was introduced as a local treasure. Recently awarded the New Mexico Music Association’s Eric Larson Lifetime Achievement Award, the 84-year-old musician has been a fixture on the state’s jazz scene since moving here in 1958. But he’s more than a local hero. His confidence, his invention, and his sense of musical purpose make an argument that the regional nature of jazz is the source of its development and endurance. Asher, who seldom performs outside the state, is nonetheless one of the music’s ranking personalities, no matter the location. The quartet opened on a relaxed pace with “Beautiful Love.” Playing baritone against Anthony’s crisp, just-so accompaniment, the saxophonist pushed the tune from inside the tempo, filling space with phrases that seemed to go places before ending with definitive resolution. He played strong right up through a line’s last note — not an easy thing to do on the burly instrument, especially at this altitude. Those lines were frequently as beautiful as suggested by the number’s title. But they also held a bit of minor-key darkness, a nod to the uncertainties of love. Asher picked up the flute for “What’s New,“ delivering a rich tone that he occasionally embellished with extra air or a burst of brightness. His lines were longer than those from the baritone but just as resolute. Asher brings out the best in his band mates. With the rest of the group sitting out, Trentacosta and Asher, this time on alto, displayed the familiarity of their 20-some-year association; the drummer seemingly anticipating the saxophonist’s lines. On George Gershwin’s “Summertime” the two paired again, the drums and Asher’s soprano in an all-out uptempo drive. Then Anthony paired off with the saxophonist and the two chased each other through the song, one leading and then the other. But the most beautiful moment of the number — and the set — was Asher’s languid, melancholy solo introduction, a thing of such lyrical beauty that it sounded composed (and may have been; the saxophonist having a stand and sheet music that he seldom referenced in front of him). With the sunset showing its last orange colors behind him and a warm breeze stirring, it seemed as though he’d anticipated the mood and was playing in tune with what nature had painted. — Bill Kohlhaase

All the cosmos in Red River A lot of country singers do songs about being a cowboy. But Michael Martin Murphey doesn’t just have the songs and the hat. In a recent telephone interview, Murphey said he operates ranches in Colorado, Texas, and Wisconsin. “They’re pretty much dedicated to horses. I’ve been involved with cattle, but I’ve decided to concentrate on horses,” said the man responsible for “Wildfire,” probably the most famous horse song of the 20th century this side of “Tennessee Stud.” Murphey used to live in New Mexico. He moved to Taos around 1980 and stayed 20 years, he said. And now, he’s back, at least for a few months. Red River will be his base this summer. And he has a lot planned there — a series of shows plus the release of a new album, Red River Drifter. First of all, there’s a show Saturday, July 6, at the Motherlode Saloon that he’s calling the Cosmic Cowboy Rebellion. The show also features Gary P. Nunn (most famous for writing “London Homesick Blues,” which was later used for the closing theme of PBS’s Austin City Limits), Bob Livingston, Craig Hillis, Herb Steiner, and Paul Pearcy. “All those guys were in my Cosmic Cowboy band,” Murphey said, referring to the early and mid-1970s, when Murphey was a key figure in the progressive country scene in Austin. Murphey said the individual musicians will be playing their own solo sets as well as playing together like the old Cosmic Cowboy days. He had a song called “Cosmic Cowboy, Part 1,”

on his album Cosmic Cowboy Souvenir, which has the refrain “I just want to be your cosmic cowboy/I just want to ride and rope and hoot.” That fertile longhair redneck musical alliance included Jerry Jeff Walker, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Rust Weir, Steve Frumholz, and others. “I got sick for awhile, so the Cosmic Cowboy band started playing with Jerry Jeff and became the Lost Gonzo Band.” Then there’s Murphey’s new amphitheater in Red River called the Rocking 3M Chuckwagon Stage. “Just three miles up Bitter Creek Road,” he explained. It’s a covered amphitheater near a small lake. “A couple of years ago, my partner and I bought the old Lazy H Ranch, which was an old guest ranch where lots of musicians used to stay when they played Red River. Jerry Jeff Walker stayed there and Gary P. Nunn. I actually stayed there in the cabins back then.” Murphey is doing a series of shows at the amphitheater beginning Friday, July 5, and he will be playing music spanning his career. “I’ll be doing my music, all my hits, a lot of cowboy songs.” And he’s not kidding about that chuck-wagon part. The concerts will feature chuck-wagon meals catered by Texas Reds Steakhouse. Murphey said these shows will provide a real Western experience. But one thing that won’t be real — unless the drought gives us all a break later this summer — is the campfire. “It’ll be an artificial fire, unless they lift fire restrictions.” Good idea — “Murphey sparks wildfire” would be far too tempting for newspaper headline writers across the country. Flashback: The first time I met Murphey was in the summer of 1980 when he played a show at the Paolo Soleri Amphitheater that was great until his surprise guest Roger Miller, who had recently moved to Tesuque, came out on the stage. Miller stepped up to the mike and said, “I live down the road apiece,” strummed a chord or two, and all of a sudden the clouds opened up. The rain refused to quit, and the show was stopped for fear of electrocution on the uncovered stage. Miller must have been cursed. Next time he performed here — a big show with Barbara
Mandrell at the Santa Fe Downs a couple of years later — it rained like crazy again. All this and a new album too. Red River Drifter is released next week. It’s an all-acoustic album with bluegrass overtones — especially the upbeat “Peaceful Country,” which opens the CD. Like all Murphey albums in the past several years, it’s produced by his son Ryan Murphey, an accomplished songwriter and guitarist. The best song here is a funny one, “Shake It Off,” which Murphey sings with Pauline Reese. It’s got one foot in bluegrass and one foot in the blues. It could almost be an old jug-band song from the 1920s. “When the monkey’s on your back don’t you cut him any slack/Buddy, won’t ya shake it off/When the devil’s at your door, don’t you take it any more/Buddy, won’t ya shake it off.” “Faded Blues” is basically a western take on Thoreau’s adage, “Beware of all enterprises that require new clothes.” It tells of a poor kid whose girl leaves him for “a sharp-dressed dude, kind of a high-brow cat.” This tune has some tasty Mexican-style guitar that would make Marty Robbins proud. Another favorite is “Mountain Storm,” a minor-key tune with some sweet fiddling and a melody that might remind you of “Poor Wayfaring Stranger.” From the beginning, Red River Drifter is full of gorgeous melodies, the sweet, sentimental tune called “The Gathering” perhaps being the best example. It’s good to know that New Mexicans will have plenty of opportunities to hear those melodies up close this summer. The Cosmic Cowboy Rebellion show is at 8 p.m. Saturday, July 6, at The Motherlode, 410 E. Main in Red River. Tickets are $42 (VIP tickets $60).

PASATIEMPO I July 5 -11, 2013
sing clay-based paint, Santa Fe artist Mokha Laget has crafted a series of geometric abstractions that gravitate between nonobjective and objective interpretations. Color Walk, an exhibition of her work on view at Peyton Wright Gallery, represents a direct lineage from the Washington Color School, active in the D.C. area from the late 1950s and through the 1960s. Beyond that, Laget’s paintings recall the earlier Color Field movement as well as the work of German-born painter Josef Albers. The dynamism of Laget’s paintings have a flow of movement, a sense of depth, and spatial considerations that invite real-world comparisons. For instance, Study for Skybox VII, a new work shown in the exhibit, reads like the edges of buildings against a blue sky. The blue color takes on the characteristics of negative space within the painting, although it can also be read as solid color form or as a formal, reductive abstract element. Looking at the work, one gets the sense of gazing straight upward, into the sky. Other abstractions in Laget’s Skybox series suggest a similar interplay of architectural forms in space without use of any actual explicit references. In other words, the sense of objects in space is merely implied. “My work is always about the dialectical play on every level,” Laget told Pasatiempo. “I was a studio assistant with Gene Davis of the Washington Color School for four years and worked extensively with him on color issues and color application. I really wanted to push that further and start working with the surface as well but keeping the depth and transparency. When I worked with Gene we had a lot of discussions about this idea that, here he was working in this very formalistic, hard-edge way, and he had really started as an Abstract Expressionist. Those two impulses were within him. That was a duality he was never completely able to bridge, and that was something that was, for me, essential to bridge. It’s essential to make a synthesis between the formal and the informal.” Laget’s triangular wedge forms, tapering to a point at one end and opening wide at the other, draw the eye in a multitude of directions, right out off the picture frame. It is almost puzzling how clearly defined sections of color appear to swing between having a solid appearance to having the appearance of space, as in the painting Unseen 1. The sense of depth in it is always present but constantly shifting. An earlier body of work Laget called the Bildung, or the Architectonic Series, also plays with the idea of lines of sight in the paintings extending into the physical
space around them. “The vanishing points are outside the frame, so your eye is naturally pushed off and then brought back,” she said. “When it’s pushed out you’re dealing with the architectural space as a whole. There’s an implied space that meets the eye. Then there’s an implied space that happens within the painting because you are drawn into it at deeper levels. For me, the architecture is something that is internal as well as external.” The surface treatment in her work has a matte, velvety texture enhanced through the use of clay pigments. Some colors sink into the canvas and others pop depending on their juxtaposition with other colors. The most obvious associations with Laget’s use of black are shadows, night, or void space, but they, too, could be seen as mere shapes within the greater construct of the overall composition. Included in the exhibition are a few shaped canvases, the edges of which echo the geometric shapes of the compositions. In some ways, Laget’s current work is a reflection of her life experience. She came to the United States after spending part of her childhood in North Africa and studying in Europe. “I came to America when I was quite young, and we always talk about it as this melting pot but, in fact, it’s not a melting pot. It’s more like a mosaic. We don’t ever melt. We kind of pull it together with edges that don’t quite fit. My personal mosaic has been extraordinarily rich with all the cultures and influences, and all the exposure to art that have needed to be processed.” In the series Homage to the Wedge, the repetition of triangular or wedge-shaped forms is suggested by the use of multitudes of parallel lines. “Albers is a fantastic inspiration, both in terms of what he was doing with color behavior and the purest forms. The series I call Homage to the Wedge, that’s a wink to Albers’ series Homage to the Square.” Peyton Wright rarely exhibits work by living artists, but the modernist sensibilities in Laget’s abstractions make her an exception. “They saw that the work I was doing was not only directly connecting to the early modernists but then pushing it into the contemporary, which I don’t think many people are doing.” ◀

ART OF SPACE
In great depth: the art caves of Ra Paulette If you’ve had the opportunity to visit one of Ra Paulette’s art caves in the Embudo area, the word “transcendent” might occur to you when describing the experience. “I call it the cave effect,” Paulette said. “There are some perceptual and psychological things that are in play, as far as a medium goes, that are advantages in this work.” And work it is. The process of creating his underground cathedrals is intensely physical, as viewers of CaveDigger will see. The new documentary film screens at the Center for Contemporary Art on Tuesday and Sunday, July 9 and 14. Even though his medium is relatively soft sandstone, it is rock, and the cave sites are remote. You get an inkling of the effort involved when you observe Paulette 44

trudging, climbing over the landscape on his way to his current cave project, a wheelbarrow and tools strapped to his back. Then there’s all the digging and carving, creating arches and walls, shoveling all the loose stuff into the barrow, and hauling it outside the cave entrance. California filmmaker Jeffrey Karoff was inspired to make CaveDigger not only because of the quality of this work but because of the artist’s anonymity. “Paulette’s spectacular, Gaudi-like caves are easily on par with the most well-known land artists — Goldsworthy, Smithson, De Maria — yet only a small circle in Northern New Mexico is aware of his work,” Karoff wrote in a blog for the Maui Film Festival. His 2013 documentary won an audience award for Best Short at the mid-June festival.
The most recent image in CaveDigger is from August 2012. Karoff started shooting in January 2010, a decade after he first saw a Paulette cave. That occasion was the result of meeting Shel Neymark and Liz Riedel at a Dixon pancake breakfast. “They were having a cave built, and at that point they were pretty exasperated, because it had been going on for some time, and Liz was sick. But I walked into that cave and was just sort of hit with this visceral impact.” As the film shows, Paulette’s wholly intuitive process — as he picks through the rock, creating floors and ceilings, pillars, rooms, doorways, steps, benches, and detailed carving decorations in the surface — made it difficult to satisfy clients’ needs regarding deadlines. Each cave took years to complete.
“I wasn’t particularly interested in making a piece that was simply exploring an artist and his process and work,” Karoff said. “I wanted to find something deeper and more universal. There’s a fundamental irony, because here’s a guy who is ultimately an outsider in almost every way you can think of, and yet he was dealing with a timeless conflict: creative freedom versus the financing for that creativity and dealing with people. Ra is a world-class artist and he is unnoticed, and because of that he has to deal with the exigencies of having patrons and what they want. So is he a contractor or is he an artist?” Karoff said the major challenge in doing the film was finding a structure. “Biography does not supply that very easily, so finding a way to tell a story with a beginning, middle, and end was difficult.” He found what he came to think of as “a liberation story” in the conflicts Paulette had with patrons, which disappeared when the artist ultimately decided to work only for himself. Most of the art caves have proceeded without incident, as Paulette carves away, relying on what he terms “intuitive engineering.” In one project, though, he encountered a different sort of rock. “That wasn’t the usual Ojo Caliente sandstone, but it was in my backyard. I did my best, but the material didn’t work. The Ojo Caliente sandstone is homogeneous. You’re dealing with one material, basically going into a solidness that is all one thing. If your shapes are conservatively engineered, I don’t have problems. Safety is everything, working as a cave artist.” Even with the more consistent rock, it’s still one of the most demanding mediums one could conceive for such large projects. Is the man obsessively physical? “It comes out of my life experience. For many years I traveled around and worked as a farm laborer. I was known as the human backhoe. My approach to labor is as a dancer. It’s a very minimalistic dance.” Paulette grew up in La Porte, Indiana. He came to Arroyo Seco in 1977 to visit an old friend and moved to Embudo in 1984. He finished the first cave in 1987. Known as the Heart Chamber, it was created on public land and became somewhat of a public shrine — so well-visited, in fact, that the artist had to fill it in. “There were so many people going to it and it was detrimental to the area, and there were safety issues.” He calls himself “a precocious beginner,” in spite of that fact that he’s been dedicating himself to creating these caves for more than a quarter century. “I don’t have a studio, and I try to evolve by doing different things. As a sculptor I don’t have that many hours in, because so much of it has to do with excavation, but I think creating negative space and feeling the shape of the negative space is a sculptural aspect that I think you only find in digging a cave. That’s another psychological aspect of the cave effect: we feel the shapes we’re in with our peripheral continued on Page 46

Art of Space, continued from Page 45 attention and it is different to be in shapes that are other than rectangular prisms. “The project kind of reveals itself. I have a starting point in my mind, and then what’s being offered reveals itself as the project is under way.” With that modus operandus, problems with client deadlines are a given. That is no longer an issue. He is in his third year of a 10-year project, just for himself. He calls it his magnum opus. He could use some help. But in the film, he says, ”I’ve tried to tell young guys that they can do this, but it doesn’t register.” There have been some with an interest, but they didn’t seem to have the ability. “Ra turns 67 in July, and he’s pretty out-front about wanting to have young people working with him,” Karoff said. “He has in the past tried to instruct people on how to follow their noses into the mountain and none of them can find the floor.”

Finding the floor. Imagine carving your way through a mountainside, looking for a “floor.” One important aspect of the process is rigorously practical. “I try to avoid wheelbarrowing uphill,” Paulette said. “So in most of them the floor level is higher than the outside entrance. But I generally go up and down, up and down, and here and there I’ll go through the ceiling because it’s important to correlate the outside with the inside.” Karoff and his Transylvania-born director of photography, Anghel Decca, give viewers plenty of rhapsodic pans in these entrancing sandstone spaces. With all that’s gone before it, Paulette’s magnum opus promises to be an astounding feature. “It’s very exciting. It’s a culmination,” he said. “Actually, the process is what I get out of it, but I have a lot of ideas and plans, how this could be a societal tool, how this could be used as an instrument of connecting people to the earth and also to their own inner sense of who they are. I’m creating a venue, a very unique venue.” ◀ “CaveDigger” screens at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 9, including an interview with Ra Paulette, and at 11:30 a.m. Sunday, July 14 (with Paulette and director Jeffrey Karoff), at the Center for Contemporary Art (1050 Old Pecos Trail, 982-1338). 46

T H E A F T E R L I F E O F O N C E - G R A N D T H E AT E R S art of the allure of exploring derelict and abandoned buildings is the chance of finding a relic from the past. The excitement of entering a danger zone, ignoring prohibitions to “keep out,” is another draw — as is the possibility of seeing a ghost. Since the 1990s, photographer Julia Solis, along with artist collaborators and friends, has lead history-based scavenger hunts, art installations, and performances in abandoned buildings to call attention to their potential as places for creative expression. These experiences led Solis to start a photography project that culminated in a book, Stages of Decay, which explores the architecture and ornamentation of neglected and forgotten theaters across the United States and Europe. “Finding them came out of a general desire to explore abandoned buildings and ruins and do something different with them, bringing people into them and allowing them to have an experience with the space through adventure games I’ve organized, or having a picnic inside a building,” Solis told Pasatiempo. “When you’re paying attention to any downtown in America you start noticing them. I was driving through a small town in the hills of West Virginia, an old industrial town, very small, and I thought I’d go down Main Street because I’m sure they’ll have a theater. They always do. There is a Main Street and, yes, there was a theater and, yes, it was abandoned. It was just a lucky guess. The door was open in the back, and you walk in and see this incredible structure that’s still standing, and you can find things inside that people haven’t seen in five, 10, or 20 years.” Solis peppers the book’s accompanying essay with intriguing images: a mosaic tile with Mesoamerican motifs in the Vanity Ballroom in Detroit, the gilded ceiling
of Loew’s Kings Theater in Brooklyn. A short section of vignettes, briefly delving into the history of five different abandoned theaters, presents readers with an introduction to the kind of spaces Solis concentrated on for the book. They are movie theaters, concert venues, ballrooms, hospital stages, and a large number of school auditoriums. “A lot of those are in the Detroit area, because Detroit has an unusually high amount of abandoned schools. I found it surprising, too, that even a very small school that takes up half a block will have a beautiful auditorium inside. I wasn’t aware of that until I started this project. Some of them are very plain, but you can tell that someone loved performing there because there was a lot of care put into them, even if they didn’t have a lot of financial means.” Theatrical spaces weave a timeless spell, even when crumbling to dust, because the details of plaster ornamentation and scenery are part of a theater’s aura of escapism and play. “When they built the first movie palaces in the teens and ’20s, people would go into these incredible theaters, and they’d never seen anything like it before. Not even the churches were that glorious, because developers would spare no expense with the ornaments, especially in the atmospheric theaters where they tried to recreate an entire outdoor setting, with lights that would turn on and off and seemed like stars twinkling, little bird sculptures that sing, all these incredible details that would make you feel you were traveling somewhere completely different, whisked back 100 years to a place where everything was better. It’s designed to whisk you away into another world.” Anachronisms such as Detroit’s Michigan Theater, whose ornate ceiling is a bizarre contrast to the parking structure that now occupies the space, carry an air of aging majesty. But if the graffiti, trash, and willful damage evident in some of continued on Page 50

these old theaters is any indication, they hide danger as well as treasures. “One thing about a theater that’s difficult to get into is that there won’t be people inside, and you can find something that’s sort of like a time capsule. That’s really nice. But the one’s that are really blown out and open, people are living in them, and people do drug deals in them. It gets pretty sketchy, and so I sometimes go in a larger group or go really fast, take a couple photos, and run out. I almost got car-jacked in East St. Louis. I knew it was a really bad area. And the Eastown Theater here in Detroit, for instance, I was in there with a friend, and we were taking photos, and we saw flashing lights and heard sirens and saw a guy running in from the police. We left very quickly through a back door. You really don’t know what you’re going to run into. You have to be prepared and use your good judgment if you can.” Most of the theaters in Stages of Decay are now closed, and a few have been repurposed. It doesn’t matter how artful and enchanting a grand theater may once have been; more have been demolished or await demolition than have been restored, due in part to the high costs of renovation and to indifference. “Whether something is abandoned or not doesn’t have so much to do with how historic it is or functional it is. A lot of it has to do with its location and management. A lot of downtown theaters couldn’t offer parking. That’s something so trite ... you wouldn’t even think about it, but it’s such a huge economic factor for some places. Lately, there’s been so much revitalization of inner cities, which is really nice, but five or 10 years ago, when everyone was moving out of the cities and into the suburbs, a lot of these spaces were left behind, and it became hard to distinguish what the original function of one building versus another was, especially when the marquee is gone.” Solis is the founder and director of Ars Subterranea, one of several groups whose aim is to call attention to abandoned sites through creative projects and preservation campaigns. “We’re contributing to making people aware of what these spaces can still offer, that there’s a certain kind of beauty in them that should be preserved. You have to make something positive out of it because it is very sad. It’s as sad as seeing any beautiful artwork or even an organism come to life and then die again. You have to appreciate the beauty when it’s there and celebrate it.” ◀ “Stages of Decay” by Julia Solis was published by Prestel in March.

Hi-yo Silver, away — far away Robert Nott I The New Mexican The Lone Ranger, Western, rated PG-13, Regal Stadium 14, onion At one point in producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski’s movie The Lone Ranger, the titular hero (Armie Hammer) halts his horse on his way out of town to tell his lady love (Ruth Wilson), “I can’t stay.” You see, Western heroes get to move on to new adventures at a certain point. Boy, was he lucky. I had to sit through the entire film, which has a running time of about two and a half hours and feels twice that length. Action packed but curiously unexciting, The Lone Ranger offers an uneasy mix of sadistic violence and wry humor. Whether its depiction of the Comanche offends Native Americans remains for others to determine. Frankly, I think the picture is an equal-opportunity offender: it insults everyone, including flesh-eating rabbits, one-legged prostitutes, and the audience. Only the scenic beauty of New Mexico and the Lone Ranger’s horse, Silver, emerge from this fiasco with any sense of dignity. And it’s a shame, because with all the talent involved and the use of a tried-and-true story of a masked hero righting wrongs in the Old West, this retelling of the Lone Ranger saga should have worked on some level. The screenwriters — Justin Haythe, Ted Elliott, and Terry Rossio — created a charming framework from which to spin their tale. A young boy (well played by Mason Cook) clad in Lone Ranger garb, circa 1933, visits a carnival’s Wild West exhibition, where he encounters an aged Tonto

The film follows the traditional Lone Ranger set-up of a group of Texas Rangers, including John Reid (Hammer) riding into a canyon ambush orchestrated by the evil Butch Cavendish (presented here as a borderline cannibal in the persona of actor William Fichtner). Only Reid survives, saved by Comanche outcast Tonto with some help from a spirit horse that Reid calls Silver. With the donning of a black mask, Reid becomes the Lone Ranger, and he and Tonto set out to bring Cavendish to justice — for very different reasons. The Lone Ranger not only borrows and steals bits, gags, and direct scenes from earlier, greater movies — High Noon; The Searchers; Once Upon a Time in the West; The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly; The Wild Bunch; and The General (the 1927 Buster Keaton version), to name just a few — it shamelessly relies on familiar thematic devices from the Western genre. So it jams in a revenge theme, the cavalry vs. Indians conflict, the business involving white men posing as Comanches to stir up trouble, the building of the railroad (representing progress and power), and an examination of race relations. It also offers environmental commentary, as the actions of Cavendish and his criminal colleagues set nature out of balance, which is where those carnivorous bunnies come in. All of these elements leave little room for character development or reflection of any kind. As if it can’t slow down for fear of losing its audience, the movie rushes ahead with little rhyme
or reason. Tonto gets jailed about 20 or 30 minutes into the movie, and then he’s out and about, and we never learn how he escaped. The Lone Ranger is wounded, unconscious, and comes to on top of a high burial platform on a scaffold that sits on a narrow mountain peak about a thousand feet high. In the very next scene, he’s stumbling through the desert. Maybe he had a parachute. The characters fall from speeding trains and off of roofs and bridges without sustaining much more than a scratch or a bump, bouncing back immediately like animated foils in a Warner Bros. cartoon. Instead of pursuing Cavendish and his bunch, the Lone Ranger and Tonto should have taken on the scriptwriters, producers, and director, sending them to the hoosegow without any chance of parole. The actors don’t perform, they clown. Depp must have taken pointers from Joey Bishop’s similar turn as a deadpan, wise-cracking Indian in a deservedly forgotten Dean Martin comedy Western called Texas Across the River. Hammer’s part is written and performed as if he is Superman in one scene and Jerry Lewis in the next. The women mostly serve as window dressing, and Fichtner and Barry Pepper, as the bad guys, offer cardboard-cutout villainy. But let’s try to be a little upbeat here. The horse’s antics are amusing, even when the film’s creators turn him into Pegasus as he carries our often inept hero across the top of buildings and locomotives. New Mexico does look beautiful, and you should be thankful it doesn’t have to deliver any dialogue, given the quality of the script. “Who am I to argue with the Great Spirit?” Tonto remarks at one point. It would be nice if the Great Spirit warned moviegoers away from this picture. I know I will. ◀

Just a shot away Jonathan Richards I The New Mexican 20 Feet From Stardom, documentary, rated PG-13, Center for Contemporary Arts, 3.5 chiles And the colored girls go doo-do-doo-do-do, doo-do-doodo-do ... “Some people get nervous about that,” says Darlene Love, listening to the chorus of Lou Reed’s Take a Walk on the Wild Side. “Because it says ‘colored girls.’ ” And she laughs. But they were colored girls, a lot of them, once the music industry started shaking off the dredged-inflour whiteness of the Perry Como years and putting backup singers with soul behind the headliners in recording sessions and touring acts. There were white girls too, and some men as well in the backup ranks (Rita Coolidge was a session singer who broke through the barrier, and Luther Vandross started out behind David Bowie), but an awful lot of the best ones were black women. And when rock and roll gave them license to be as black as they wanted to be, it freed a glorious sound. “People started wanting songs with feeling,” Stevie Wonder recalls. When British groups like the Rolling Stones came across the Atlantic in the mid-’60s, it opened things up even more for black women, because a lot of these guys “were trying to sound black,” Merry Clayton remembers with a chuckle. Clayton got a call in the middle of the night to do a studio session for the Stones on “Gimme Shelter.” Pregnant, hair in curlers, she belted “Rape! Murder! It’s just a shot away!” into rock history. Love and her Blossoms sang backup, and sometimes even did the whole song, ghosting for established groups that took the credit. This movie reunites Love with the other two Blossoms, Fanita James and Gloria A. Jones, for the first time in
Jean King, Darlene Love, and Fanita James behind Marvin Gaye, 1964
decades, and they reminisce about doing “He’s a Rebel” for Phil Spector. He released it as a single by The Crystals, who were on the road touring with Gene Pitney. “It started climbing the charts,” James recalls, “and they’d never even heard it!” Love was under contract to Spector, who exploited her ruthlessly — you think of Debbie Reynolds in Singin’ in the Rain, contractually forced to dub the movie voice of Jean Hagen, saying “I’ll do it, Don, but I never want to see you again!” Love never wanted to see Spector again, and trapped inside the producer’s celebrated Wall of Sound, she quit the music business and went to work cleaning houses. Then one day “while I was cleaning this lady’s bathroom” she heard an old song of hers on the radio and knew she had to give it another try. Love really began her solo career at the age of 40; in 2011, she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Morgan Neville’s exhilarating documentary brings these backups singers front and center and illuminates a dynamic of the 20th-century rock-music scene that too often got taken for granted. Ray Charles’s iconic “What’d I Say?” is a classic call-and-response straight out of the black church tradition, but with sex on its mind. One of the Raelettes who filled that sound is Mable John, now a Los Angeles pastor. Many of the women who filled the ranks of the background singers came from the gospel tradition, the black churches, and the families of preachers.
Sweet harmony in the rock: Jo Lawry, Judith Hill, and Lisa Fischer
You’ll meet some terrific women, and hear some extraordinary voices. Tata Vega, Claudia Lennear, the Waters family, Lynne Mabry, and the sublime Lisa Fischer are a few that will send you out of the theater wondering about that imponderable barrier that kept them from headliner stardom. Judith Hill was set to launch her career as a featured performer in Michael Jackson’s farewell concert tour, “This Is It,” when the star’s death sent her back to the ranks. Today she hovers between a solo career and backup work; she enjoys the latter, but friends and critics worry that it undermines the former. A few flirted with breakout careers, only to see that will-o’-the-wisp dance tantalizingly just beyond their reach. They were slotted into a niche already filled with another star, or one thing happened, or another, and they found themselves back working for a living in the upstage regions, and for the most part happy to be there. They get their moments in the spotlight — Lennear and Fischer have been regular featured performers with the Rolling Stones on tour. The quality that runs through them all is a love of music and a joy in the way voices can blend and weave and make acoustic magic. “I love melodies,” Fischer says. “I’m in love with sound vibrations and what they do to other people.” Most of the singers we see here started out in the business young in the ’60s and ’70s. They’re of a certain age now, comfortable in their own skins, funny, philosophical, and warmly natural, respectable women with a few disreputable memories that they hide behind earthy chuckles and sparkling eyes. Most of them never made that leap to stardom, but the regret is muted; if there’s disappointment, there’s little bitterness and a lot of pleasure in both yesterday and today. We hear from some of the stars whose careers have profited from the work of these singers who stand 20 feet back and make magic. Bruce Springsteen, Mick Jagger, Sting, and Bette Midler listen to some old tracks and shake their heads in pleasure at the backup work that enriched their sound. “Not everyone is cut out for stardom,” Springsteen says. Some of it’s temperament, some of it’s luck, and some of it’s just the business. But here the backup singers step out front and center, and it’s glorious. ◀ PASATIEMPOMAGAZINE.COM

Monotone hysteria Jennifer Levin I For The New Mexican Augustine, drama, not rated, in French with subtitles, The Screen, 2 chiles If I had a choice between being burned at the stake as a witch or being treated for hysteria in a 19thcentury French mental hospital, it’s possible I’d choose the latter. But if I had to watch a movie about either, I would choose the former because I have yet to see a really good movie about hysteria — the time-honored “medical” term, only abandoned in the mid-20th century, that encompassed practically every health problem women had and attributed them to a “wandering womb,” which made you sick and crazy. Are you lustful? Angry at your husband? Fat? Frigid? Epileptic? It’s because you’re a woman and inherently mentally ill. At some point in history, mentally ill women were burned at the stake. Later medical treatment for hysteria prominently featured the practice of doctors masturbating their female patients to orgasm — called “hysterical paroxysm” — for a fee, of course, to cure them of their symptoms. But before that there was Dr. Jean-Martin Charcot, a pioneering neurologist, born in 1825, who worked with hysterical women at Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris. He hypnotized women in front of panels of male physicians in order to trigger and showcase hysterical episodes such as the violent, sexual seizures of his most famous patient, a 19-year-old housemaid named Augustine. While Augustine, a French film about the treatment of hysteria, written and directed by Alice Winocour, doesn’t make a joke out of medical sexual

Hysterical/historical: Vincent Lindon
abuse — as the 2011 film Hysteria did — it just doesn’t have enough meat in the story to make it a compelling narrative of its own subject matter. It is supposedly about the relationship between Charcot (played by Vincent Lindon) and Augustine (singer and actress Soko), but there is so little dialogue, exposition, or character development that if you didn’t already know the history behind the movie, you wouldn’t get much out of watching it. The tone of the movie is uneven, with a score that does more than imply that you are about to watch a horror film based in an old-fashioned mental institution, yet the story never goes in that direction. It’s a red herring with no dramatic purpose. We begin with Augustine serving dinner to a party of wealthy people. She has a seizure that forces her left eye shut and weakens and numbs that side of her body. (She is not paralyzed on that side, as some critics have stated; many symptoms of hysteria seemed to have no organic basis — thus the diagnosis of hysteria.) She is sent to the hospital, which is filled with ghoulish, suffering women and the aforementioned horror-movie score. Charcot tests her symptoms by, among other techniques, sticking a hot metal poker all the way through her arm, causing her no pain, bleeding, or sensation, as well as expanding her vagina with some kind of instrument that looks like it hurts, a lot. He considers her the perfect hysterical specimen and shows her off to panels of doctors, mostly in an effort to get funding for further research. Because Augustine’s seizures, which Charcot can trigger at will, are highly sexual, with copious pelvic thrusting, moaning, and grabbing at herself, other doctors — and their wives — regard their relationship with derisive suspicion.
At first, it’s difficult to tell what is going on between doctor and patient. Augustine seems to be developing affection for Charcot, and he seems utterly put off by this, yet he controls her entire life. When he doesn’t tell her he is going out of town for a few days, she becomes silent and combative with hospital staff, refusing to eat. When Charcot returns, he feeds her soup, spoonful by spoonful. His wife is suspicious, but everything actually seems aboveboard — until it isn’t. With so little dialogue and nearly endless shots that linger on the actors’ expressionless faces, viewers could project almost anything they wanted onto the story. I was hoping for themes about the conflation of medical care and romantic love, need and lust, trust and exploitation. But none of that is explored. Nothing is explored. It’s unfortunate, because the acting is uniformly good and the background story is so very rich. The most confusing part of the movie is when we are suddenly outside the hospital, witnessing testimonials from individual women talking about symptoms of their mental illness. The women are not in the rest of the movie, and though they are dressed as though they live in the 1870s, there’s something very modern about their styling. What they speak of is interesting, albeit exceedingly brief, but in no way connected to the rest of the film. Why is it so tough to get at this subject? Why are we so afraid to talk beyond the diagnosis and titterinducing treatment to what was actually happening in women’s minds and bodies? Any filmmaker considering taking on the topic of hysteria might consider that there is a middle path between treating it as something ridiculous in the history of women’s autonomy and a thrill-less gothic horror show. ◀

When she loses her job answering phones and witnesses her husband in bed with another woman, she high-tails it from Chicago to Santa Fe to audition for a belly-dancing company. Mona’s (Golshifteh Farahani) in-laws own a convenience store that Marilyn frequents, and the two run into each other at a highway rest stop where Mona ends up after an accidental murder. As luck would have it, Mona also belly dances. Rachid Bouchareb’s film tries to confront heady subjects like violence against women and racial discrimination, but its treatment of these topics is so cursory and simplistic that it comes off as hackneyed. Santa Fe is presented as a Newsies-esque Shangri La, while belly dancing is portrayed as a close cousin of stripping. Rated R. 90 minutes. Center for Contemporary Arts, Santa Fe.

Celine (Delpy) and Jesse (Hawke) have been together for the decade since Before Sunset (2004). Here they drive and talk and walk and talk and make love and talk. All that conversation ebbs and flows through the intimate knowledge two people develop about each other over a long time and the ways they make each other laugh and think and cry and rage. Both actors are as good as or better than they have ever been. Rated R. 108 minutes. Regal DeVargas, Santa Fe. ( Jonathan Richards) tHe BLing ring Directed by Sofia Coppola, this is the true-crime tale of celebrity-obsessed young Angelenos (played by the ever-sensational Emma Watson, leaving Hermione Granger in the dust; a captivating Katie Chang; Taissa Farmiga; Israel Broussard; and Claire Julian) who, beginning in 2008, broke into celebrities’ homes and stole designer sunglasses, shoes, purses,
jewelry, and clothes worth more than $3 million. This is a snappily paced wisp of a film, awash with Coppola’s trademark super-cool aesthetic, her ear for dialogue, and a good amount of tension. For better or worse, she reserves judgment, although as she portrays them, these teens are a lot like the houses of the vacationing celebrities they rob: the lights are on, but nobody’s home.

The left-field hit of 2010 gets its sequel with this story about the ex-villain Gru (voiced by Steve Carell), who is trying to raise his children.

(Not reviewed) FAST & FURIOUS 6 This franchise, which somehow finds new gears with each installment, is wildly popular, and part six is more of the same. The stunts are Looney Tunes-worthy, the dialogue is hilarious (except for the jokes), and the acting (from Dwayne Johnson, Vin Diesel, and friends) stresses brawn over brains. These are all positive traits. The problem is that for a movie that hypes speed, the story, in which the gang attempts to take down a terrorist (Luke Evans), downshifts to a crawl in the film’s second half. Rated PG-13. 130 minutes. DreamCatcher, Española. (Robert Ker)
THE GREAT GATSBY Baz Luhrmann’s movie rendering of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel is The Great Gatsby the way Jay Gatsby might have directed it. Gaudy, extravagant, and ecstatically excessive, it lights up the screen like a lavish party into which Luhrmann hopes Daisy Buchanan will wander some night — and if not Daisy, then at least the rest of the world, looking for a good time. That is the quality that distinguishes this movie; when it slows down for the more intimate scenes, it usually fails to convince. Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, and Tobey Maguire star. Rated PG-13. 143 minutes. Screens in 2-D only at Regal DeVargas, Santa Fe. ( Jonathan Richards) HANNAH ARENDT In 1961, the great German-Jewish philosopher Hannah Arendt (played here by Barbara Sukowa) went to Jerusalem to cover the trial of Adolf Eichmann. What she reported, in a series of articles, angered Jews. She did not find a monster inside the glass cage that was the defendant’s dock. She found instead a “terrifyingly normal” human being who followed orders blindly. What really enraged her readers was her reporting that some European Jewish leaders were at least partly complicit in the Nazi treatment of Jews. For this she was vilified, threatened, and rejected by friends and colleagues. The climactic scene in which she answers her critics is a powerful statement of principle and riveting cinema.

Fortunately, her disposition is cheerful and optimistic, and for the most part, so is the film’s mood. Frances Ha nicely captures the awkward plight of those who struggle to find a place in the world and accurately represents floundering in your 20s. Rated R. 88 minutes.

HAVA NAGILA: THE MOVIE Let us rejoice. That is what hava nagila means, and this documentary about the song is cause for rejoicing. Director Roberta Grossman takes us on a journey, beginning with the song’s origins in Ukraine and through to Israel and America, offering wonderful photographs and film footage of Jewish people along with numerous disparate performances of the song. The movie is brief, lively, and informative, and it touches nicely on the spiritual balance between the earthly and the divine, between sorrow and joy. Not rated. 75 minutes.

FROM UP ON POPPY HILL The latest release from Japan’s Studio Ghibli comes not from master Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away) but from his son Goro. The results are disappointing. Set in 1964, the story concerns a teenage girl named Umi (voiced by Sarah Bolger in the English-dubbed version) who longs for her lost-at-sea father while helping to save her school’s student center from demolition. Although melodramatic, the tale lacks tension. The animation is still gorgeous, however, with the meticulously detailed and exquisitely colored seaside village being the film’s real star.

THE HEAT With Bridesmaids, director Paul Feig found success by putting women in the traditionally male-dominated genre of the raunchy comedy. Now he attempts to do the same with the buddy-cop genre. He reunites with Melissa McCarthy, who became a star with her assertive, frank character in Bridesmaids. She plays the bad cop to Sandra Bullock’s good cop, and the two becoming unlikely partners. The film moves quickly, and aside from some digs at Boston and Bullock’s downplayed character arc, the plot is mainly a vehicle to bring us from one McCarthy tirade to the next.

The heroic duo should have gone after the film’s screenwriters, producer, and director and thrown them in the hoosegow without any chance of parole.

The result is (sometimes too) dark and violent yet promising; it favors a realistic approach that lends a sense of awe to that which is super.

It also shows how far Pixar has fallen with regard to its writing: the cleverness of the original Monsters movie is replaced with a recycled plot. Set during the younger days of Mike and Sulley (voiced again by Billy Crystal and John Goodman), the story revolves around the two getting booted from their program at Monsters University and competing in a scaring competition to get back in.

Emma Watson and Michael Cera kill in their cameos, and the cocky, obnoxious McBride pretty much steals the show. Rogen and Evan Goldberg co-direct with a light touch; if it looks like a film made by a bunch of buddies trying to crack each other up, that’s because it is. Rated R. 107 minutes. Regal Stadium 14, Santa Fe. (Robert Ker) WHITE HOUSE DOWN Just in time for the Fourth of July, here’s a movie in which the White House gets blown up good. Don’t worry, though: the destruction is being carried out by director Roland Emmerich, who has done this before (in Independence Day) and is a total professional. This time, the enemies come not from outer space but from within our own country. Channing Tatum is the film’s tough guy, and Jamie Foxx is the President. Rated PG-13. 137 minutes. Regal Stadium 14, Santa Fe; DreamCatcher, Española; Storyteller, Taos. (Not reviewed) WORLD WAR Z Though this film thrusts its protagonist, played by Brad Pitt, into one Republic serial-type cliffhanging situation after another in rapid succession, what’s missing from Marc Forster’s production — based on the Max Brooks novel of the same name — is suspense. Pitt is the multi-talented expert who travels the world to find a way to end a zombie epidemic. The actors are convincing, and the characters more interesting than usual for such fare, but the combination of sloppy scripting, CGI special effects for the zombies, and the speed and confusion of most of the action scenes wears you out. Rated PG-13. 115 minutes. Screens in 2-D only at Regal Stadium 14, Santa Fe; DreamCatcher, Española; Storyteller, Taos. (Robert Nott)

The Short Order Someone in the kitchen at Momo & Co. has a serious sweet tooth. This is mostly a good thing, given that the glass case at this cute, colorful bakery-café just down the street from the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum displays gluten-free and vegan cupcakes along with other sweet treats. Not much on the menu is savory; whether you think that’s a problem depends on whether you think having a waffle topped with cookies and whipped cream for lunch is a good idea. Recommended: green “rollito,” the Big Pun waffle, chocolatemocha cupcake, and carrot-ginger cupcake.
Ratings range from 0 to 4 chiles, including half chiles. This reflects the reviewer’s experience with regard to food and drink, atmosphere, service, and value.
PASATIEMPO I July 5 -11, 2013
Someone in the kitchen at Momo & Co. has a serious sweet tooth. This is mostly a good thing, given that the glass case at this cute, colorful bakery-café just down the street from the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum displays cupcakes in various flavor combinations, cookies, sticky buns, and other confections. The fact that these treats are mostly gluten free and vegan only adds to their appeal. People deserve to tuck into a delicious dessert without having to compromise their ethics or their digestive systems or going into anaphylactic shock. If you’re skeptical about the idea of a gluten-free vegan cupcake, you should sample some of Momo’s wares. On any given day, you’ll have up to a dozen flavors to choose from. While many that we tasted were slightly crumbly, they were still delicious, sweet, and cakey, the frosting pleasantly light and fluffy — they were all capable of standing up to “conventional” cupcakes. The chocolatemocha variety is filled with enjoyably moist, if slightly thin, vegan caramel; and we especially enjoyed the hint of citrus in the carrot-ginger cake’s frosting. Waffles are a specialty of the house and are served all day. These vegan gluten-free variations on the plain butter-and-syrup combination (that’s available too, with vegan butter) include waffles topped with strawberries or blueberries and whipped cream — versions of breakfasts you could find in many a diner or pancake house across America. But you’re wandering into dessert territory when you start considering topping your waffle with crumbled crunchy chocolate-chip cookies and whipped cream. Delicious? Yes. Too sweet for lunch? Probably. If there’s a glitch at Momo, it’s that not much on the menu is savory. The Baby Bella sandwich is a generous, slightly greasy panini full of well-sautéed marinated portobello mushrooms and caramelized-onion jam. That combination results in a filling so soft and sweet that the third ingredient, typically pungent smoked Gouda, was almost completely lost. Each of the salads and bowls on the lunch board includes at least one sweet ingredient — a salad with beets and pears, for example, and a quinoa bowl with currants and roasted sweet potatoes. That’s not to say that savory items aren’t available. In a more traditional vein, Momo offers a breakfast sandwich made with organic free-range eggs, green chile, and jack cheese, which is served all day. One waffle on the list is topped with highly aromatic (though not particularly spicy) green chile, a pretty little fan of avocado, and either regular or vegan cheese (the latter doesn’t melt well — a condition that’s plagued alternative cheeses for decades — but beneath its oddly tough surface, it’s remarkably creamy). Even this waffle comes with a side of maple syrup. Also on the less-sweet side is the über-nutritious green “rollito” — a pseudo burrito stuffed with carrots, pineapple, and purple cabbage, a collard-green leaf standing in
for the tortilla. The nut-ginger dipping sauce (made with cashews rather than the peanuts you might expect) has more of a spreadable than a dippable consistency, but it’s still highly satisfying and mildly addictive — rich, buttery, and with a mild gingery warmth. An area filled with toys for kids is tucked into one corner (it includes a miniature kitchen, naturally), but the rest of the sunny space feels like a playroom for grownups, with its multicolored walls and tables, speckled robins-egg-blue floor, and eclectic artwork. Free wifi is available, but the generous, spacious tables will encourage you to gather and linger with friends or family. Adding to the lighthearted atmosphere, the waffles all have hip-hop-related names (Wu Tang, Brass Monkey, Big Pun, and Sugar Hill, for example), and while you’re noshing on one and sipping local Agapao coffee or a Boba tea, you might hear some Beastie Boys sandwiched between Fiona Apple or a slackkey-guitar version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” Veganism and animal cruelty are addressed with discretion and subtlety here. You might come across a pamphlet titled “Compassionate Choices: Making a Difference for Animals,” but no messages are plastered across the walls, and no one will get in your face about your choices, dietary or otherwise. The staff members I encountered were pleasant and had smiles on their faces, and they’re all happy to provide you with whatever information you need about products and their ingredients. In case you’re feeling guilty about having a waffle with ice cream for lunch, check out the mirror in the bathroom. A sticker there reminds us that “Reflections in this mirror may be distorted by socially constructed ideas of ‘beauty.’ ” Ain’t that sweet? ◀
