Something was needed, Chandler thought, whereby Hendrix could blow the successive acts off the stage and Altham had the beginning of an idea. Altham borrowed a lighter from Gary — the third Walker brother and drummer — and that night, at Bobby Jones And New Life - New LP Releases (Vinyl Astoria theatre in central London, Hendrix set his guitar ablaze for the first time.
The small clubs in regional venues. When he was desperate to make a name for himself, but was also playing for himself. In the small theatres, people had come to hear him. But that was his best music ever — played for its own sake. None of these crazy expectations, no one hanging on — just the people he knew, liked and trusted, and his own music. But what was this music, this singular, uplifting, otherworldly, menacing, exotic and erotic sound?
Then there was just the dexterity — he was left-handed, but I remember people throwing him a right-handed guitar and Hendrix picking it up and playing it upside down. These were no Fenders or Stratocasters. These were Hofners we bought for a few quid. Very basic, but stretched to the fucking limit.
The most precious insight comes from Etchingham. Sometimes, he would play a riff for hours, until he had it just right. Those were the moments he had got it right for himself, not for anyone else. The Experience would finish a concert up north, drive south, record between 3am and 9am, then return north for two more shows each day. LSD had yet to play a major role — if the Experience were on amphetamines, it was to keep the schedule. He would talk in colours and my job was to give him the electronic palette which would engineer those colours so he could paint the canvas.
But nothing can be predictive — it is speed-forward analogue, a non-repetitive wave form, and that is the definition of pure music and therefore the diametric opposite of digital. Digital makes the false presumption that you can predict those ripples, but Jimi and I were always looking for the warning signs.
The brain knows when it hears repetition that this is no longer music and what you hear when you listen to Hendrix is pure music. Jimi Hendrix only sounds like he does because he was Jimi Hendrix. The memories of the people who actually knew him overshadow the tragic, antiheroic Hendrix of popular imagination. Etchingham and Keith Altham recall a man with a sense of humour. You always knew you were with someone quicker-witted than yourself. He wanted the music to speak.
Many of his childhood friends were over there, some never to return. And then, well, there were drugs, drugs, drugs. I never took any, because I had to make sure everyone got out of bed in the morning — but they were around, too much around. Even the flat on Brook Street became an open house, to journalists, anyone. Yet Hendrix was available to anyone, perhaps almost too much so. Only Hendrix was almost too shy to appear and, when he did so, he retreated to the steps outside, where he met a young singer-songwriter too shy to enter the fray — Patti Smith.
And he was so full of ideas; the different sounds he was going to create in this studio, wider landscapes, experiments with musicians and new soundscapes. It had been a long weekend on the Isle of Wight and, for me, an exciting one.
I was compelled — not disgusted, as is the official history — by the determination of French and German anarchists to tear down the fences so that it be a free festival. The strange atmosphere added to the climactic moment, after the Who and others: the one set, at 2am on the Monday, for which it was imperative to get down from among the crowds on Desolation Row and force a way right to the front and concentrate or, rather, submit to hypnosis.
The set by Jimi Hendrix. It is written in the lore of Hendrixology that this was a terrible performance. I remember the sound — the sounds, plural — bombarding me from the far side of some emotional, existential, hallucinogenic and sexual checkpoint along the road towards the rest of my life.
I remember the deafening and painful silence after he finished his fusillade and in the crowd a mixture of rapture, gratitude, enlightenment and affection. Afterwards, Hendrix went on a reportedly disastrous tour of Scandinavia and Germany failing to meet one of his two children, by a Swedish girlfriend — the other he had sired in New York and also never metbefore returning to the Cumberland hotel and the room in which he gave his last ever interview, to Keith Altham.
To mark the anniversary, the Cumberland has designed and decorated these rooms in a swirl of colour, stocked it with Hendrix music and called it the Hendrix Suite, in which people can stay. On the tape, Hendrix laughs and jokes; he tells Altham about plans to re-form the Experience and tour England again. Burdon considered him unfit to play. The following night, he returned and joined his friend on stage. It was the last time Hendrix ever played the guitar.
Hendrix went on to a party with a German woman, Monika Dannemann, and back to her rooms at the Samarkand hotel in Lansdowne Crescent. He vomited during the deep ensuing sleep, insufficiently conscious enough to throw up; Danneman panicked, and telephoned Burdon, who urged her to call an ambulance. Sadly, Danneman took her own life in So it was, back in Septemberthat I made my way up Lansdowne Rise and round the corner to the Samarkand hotel after reading the news today, oh boy.
I was amazed to have the pavement outside the address at which Jimi Hendrix had died that morning all to myself for a good couple of hours — not a soul. He was born to a father who was an alcoholic and a mother who died and he died because he was in that flat in Notting Hill with a complete stranger who gave him a load of sleeping pills without telling him how strong they were. I can look back and see all that more clearly than I did at the time — I was so young, only Plus, he always said he wanted to be buried in London, not Seattle, where he was born and his family lived.

David Rogers introduced me to Larry […]. Working at the Museum often brings experiences that one would have never imagined. Sometimes ordinary, sometimes extraordinary.
A fairly ordinary call. Recently I had the pleasure of hosting this lovely group at Crystal Bridges. It was their first visit to Crystal Bridges and, for most, their first time in Arkansas. However, as we prepare for our upcoming exhibition State of the Art: Discovering American Art Nowmany of these works have been temporarily stored in our vaults to make room for this large-scale exhibition.
You guessed it. We made special arrangements, following Museum security and safety guidelines, for the family to visit the vault with our Registrar to view their beloved artwork. Family members told stories about it hanging in the master bedroom, where it was for 30 years, and jabbed at one family member for his careless play as a young boy that nearly damaged the work.
The matriarch and her late husband purchased Supine Woman from a gallery inone year after it was painted. She shared important documents regarding the provenance of the work, such as conversation records and purchase documents. The matriarch insisted on seeing a photo of Supine Woman on my cake! From this point forward, Supine Woman will hold new meaning for me.
I will not look at her without thinking about this extraordinary family who allowed me to step inside their story and a very special birthday celebration. Note: Crystal Bridges did not acquire Supine Woman directly from this family, the work was purchased at auction. Wayne Thiebaud born November 15, is an American painter widely known for his colorful works depicting commonplace objects—pies, lipsticks, paint cans, ice cream cones, pastries, and hot dogs—as well as for his landscapes and figure paintings.
Thiebaud is associated with the Pop art movement because of his interest in objects of mass culturealthough his early works, executed during the fifties and sixties, slightly predate the works of the classic pop artists. Thiebaud uses heavy pigment and exaggerated colors to depict his subjects, and the well-defined shadows characteristic of advertisements are almost always included in his work.
His family moved to Long Beach, California when he was six months old. From tohe worked as a cartoonist and designer in California and New York. Thiebaud subsequently began teaching at Sacramento City College. Inhe became assistant professor at the University of California, Daviswhere he remained through and influenced numerous art students. He continues to hold a Professor Emeritus title there. Thiebaud did not have much of a following among Conceptual artists because of his adherence to basically traditional disciplines, emphasis on hard work as a supplement to creativity, and love of realism.
Occasionally, he gave pro bono lectures at U. On a leave of absence during —57, he spent time in New York Citywhere he became friends with Elaine and Willem de Kooning  and Franz Klineand was much influenced by these abstractionists as well as by proto-pop artists Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns.
During this time, he began a series of very small paintings based on images of food displayed in windows, and he focused on their basic shapes. Returning to California, Somebody Needs Prayer - The Gospel Keynotes pursued this subject matter and style, isolating triangles, circles, squares, etc.
He also co-founded the Artists Cooperative gallery, now Artists Contemporary Gallery, and other cooperatives including Pond Farm, having been exposed to the concept of cooperatives in New York. These shows received little notice, but two years later, a Sidney Janis Gallery exhibition in New York officially launched Pop Artbringing Thiebaud national recognition, although he disclaimed being anything other than a painter of illusionistic form.
He is a very special man. Paul Thiebaud was a successful art dealer in his own right and had eponymous galleries in Manhattan and San Francisco; he died June 19, These painters were part of a new movement, in a time of social unrest, which shocked America and the art world. Inhe turned increasingly to figure painting: wooden and rigid, with each detail sharply emphasized.
Inhe made his first prints at Crown Point Pressand has continued to make prints throughout his career. Inhis work was shown at the Biennale Internationale. Wayne Thiebaud has been married twice. With his first wife, Patricia Patterson, he produced two children, one of whom is the model and writer Twinka Thiebaud. Thiebaud is well known for his paintings of production line objects found in diners and cafeteriassuch as pies and pastries. He was associated with the Pop Somebody Needs Prayer - The Gospel Keynotes painters because of his interest in objects of mass culture ; however, his works, executed during the fifties and sixties, slightly predate the works of the classic pop artists, suggesting that Thiebaud may have had an influence on the movement.
In addition to pastries, Thiebaud has painted characters such as Mickey Mouse as well as landscapesstreetscapes, and cityscapes, which were influenced by the work of Richard Diebenkorn. Thiebaud is a voracious reader and is known for reading poetry to his students. His thick, saturated brushstrokes and flair made him one of the most important painters of our time. Despite his monumental presence in the art world, Thiebaud is still a bright light on the Davis campus.
Though officially retired sincehe teaches one class each academic year. As much as anything, it keeps this professor emeritus of art on his creative toes. Thiebaud has taught at Davis for 34 years and endures the incessant creak of classroom chairs in the Art Building. He reads voraciously — poetry, especially. And his busy schedule does not get in the way of a serious tennis passion. His teaching philosophy is more straightforward.
Sometimes described as a realist or formalist, Thiebaud is concerned that students are not learning the basics of drawing, painting and art itself. His teaching talents and contributions, together with his artistic achievements, were honored in with the UC Davis Prize for Teaching and Scholarly Achievement. Thiebaud also has given a large number of his art works to campus galleries. Thiebaud began as a commercial artist and cartoon illustrator like many other artists of midth Century America, including Andy Warhol.
And like Warhol, Thiebaud became tied to Pop Art as he was creating images of popular American products like food, lipsticks and toys.
Yet unlike many of his pop peers, Thiebaud was not interested in poking fun at the establishment. One day the teacher asked if anyone knew how to correctly sharpen a drawing pencil. Dinah 2.

Martinez Hillard was part of the popular band Cowboy Indian Bear They were three dudes who had just moved from their hometown of Topeka to, what in our eyes, was our very own local music mecca: Lawrence, KS.
We were flush with plans and ideas for our music. Over the course of almost six years, the three of us, along with Katlyn Conroy who joined the band inand Danny Bowersox, who came in to the band in worked hard and were able to accomplish so much. Martinez Hillard started Ebony Tusks. Danny Bowersox helped form the band Spirit is the Spirit. CJ Calhoun created the musical project Bonzo Madrid.
At a time when the scene was hostile, frigid, and cliquey, Cowboy Indian Bear put on their best manners and welcomed everyone with open arms. Often times at shows early in their careers, they greeted every single patron who walked through their door. This allowed more music fans to feel at ease, and actually feel drawn to live shows.

The remaining members regrouped as New Order. They were successful throughout the next decade, blending post-punk with electronic and dance music influences. They left with four songs—one side of the album—and the record was completed at Sierra Recording Studio in Visalia, CA. After the LP was pressed, the group took their music on tour, first in California, where they played with acts including the Gospel Keynotes, The Jackson Southernaires, and the Mighty Clouds of Joy, and then on an ill-fated trip to Texas.
A follow-up album was planned forbut it never materialized; having slept sometimes a dozen to a room in Texas, the men in the band were reluctant to leave jobs, wives, and kids for the hardship of the road. The group simply fizzled out, even if the friendships never did. A copy of the album sold to a fan on that Texan tour made its way to a San Antonio record store, where it was discovered nearly three decades later by collector David Haffner Friends of Sound.
And he eventually introduced the group to Light In The Attic Records, which now presents the album, restored, remastered, and available to the public for the first time. The three shared a love for s era pop rock and soon started writing their own music.

Billy Paul — Traces  9. Billy Paul — Proud Mary . But that ode to a steamy extramarital affair hardly told the whole story of Billy Paul. As a young man in the mids, Paul was already known on the Philadelphia airwaves, and he parlayed his success into live gigs with artists as renowned as jazz saxophonist Charlie Parker. Naturally, record labels pursued Paul, and he had been recording since It was in that year that Paul recorded the first version of the Morris Bailey song that would give Ebony Woman its title.
Typical of the era, it was a studio effort despite the live title. Ebony Woman scored a none-too-shabby No. Andy Kellman has provided new liner notes based on an interview with Paul. Artist……………: Champaign Album……………. Champaign — Party People  3. Champaign — Whiplash  4. Champaign — Lighten Up  9. Champaign — If One More Morning  A wonderful treasure from the early 80s soul scene — the first album from Champaign, and an instant winner right from the start!
Artist……………: The Chi-Lites Album……………. Also features the original cover art. Posted January 9, by mrdap in Soul. The Commodores — Wide Open  2. The Commodores — Slippery When Wet  3.

Mayer Hawthorne — Finally Falling  7. Mayer Hawthorne — Hooked  8. Mayer Hawthorne — Stick Around  9. Mayer Hawthorne — The News  Mayer Hawthorne — You Called Me  Mayer Hawthorne — No Strings .
Happy days are here again! I loved his first CD A Strange Arrangement and this collection of songs is even better than the last. Unusual for a relatively unknown artist to have two incredible albums back to back, but Mayer Hawthorne has accomplished just that.
Henny and Gingerale is, in my opinion, the best of the lot and he saves it for the very last. I love the short and sweet The News, what a great tune. What a great CD, thanks Mayer, I can always count on you for great music. Posted January 8, by mrdap in Soul. Artist……………: Ace Spectrum Album……………. Ace Spectrum — Moving On  5. Ace Spectrum — Pickup  6. Ace Spectrum — Easy  8. This is one of my favorite albums from back in the day. Ace Spectrum was a wonderful group that had some of the best harmony.
This was without a doubt, their finest work. Surprisingly, my lp is still in good condition but I had to have the cd to listen to in my car. Posted January 7, by mrdap in Soul.
