* Travelling with my old 78 rpm gramophone * by Schwarz Jochen on Mixcloud


perry como / lecuana cuban boys / maurice chevalier / frankie laine / nat king cole/ alfonso esparza / burt ambrose orchestra / edmundo ros

Last friday, I bought a couple of 78 rpm shellac records at an old music store, I took my old gramophone & went to a lovely garden birthday party of a good friend for there was no electricity, so I played these songs on the gramophone. It was such a lovely atmosphere in the garden, flipping the records every 3 minutes, making some pauses, repeating some songs – though I did not have a lot of 10″ shellacs with me.

Most of the songs are from the 20ies and 30ies, I found the songs via the beautiful archive.org 78 collection here the last days on the net and recorded it again here. It´s not exactly the set of that night, I left out a maurice chavalier & one german swingtrack, the edmundo ros track is not “moonlight on bresil” but a nice version of “bresil” & I added an amazing early version of the lecuana cuban boys “taboo”.

“I shall be filled with music, sweet melodie of love”

* River *

Amazing fingerpicking masterpiece by Daniel Bachman, out via three lobed records. Think of John Fahey´s Zabriskie Point sessions, think of Jack Rose or the instrumental tracks by Robbie Basho. Especially the two parts of the “song for the setting sun” are heartbreaking, no additional voice is needed, it´s pure as that. Essential and in heavy rotation for a quite long time, I guess.

Three Lobed:

“Bachman has always been quick to have his music serve as a homage to his musical and geographical roots in Virginia. River is no exception. Here he tips his hat to Jack Rose (“Levee”) and William Moore (“Old Country Rock”) through his interpretations of their songs. Bachman’s playing and flourishes on these tracks simultaneously acknowledge the influence each of these men has on his development and style. His love for old American music and deft skill at adapting traditional tunes allows listeners of all levels of sophistication to feel welcome at his musical table. Whether one is newly discovering the world of American primitivism, or is already deeply into the experimental world, Bachman’s playing draws the listener in and takes them places.(…)”
