A Dyke About Town: Ladysmith Black Mambazo amazing at ZooTunes

by Mercy Moosemuzzle RAVI COLTRANE QUARTET
Cuteness joined Mercy for the Ravi Coltrane Quartet at Jazz Alley, July 31. It was an evening of intellectual jazz. Cuteness said the son of John and Alice Coltrane has good DNA. His saxophone was phenomenal.

David Virelles' piano was delicious. Bass by Hans Glawischnig was funky. E.J. Strickland's drums were rhythmic. High points were 'I'm Old Fashioned,' 'Who Wants Ice Cream,' and an original, 'The Change, My Girl.'

LOS LOBOS
Cuteness joined Mercy for Los Lobos at Woodland Park Zoo, August 1. Cuteness liked the warm-up band, Steve Earle and the Dukes, because his songs had a political conscience and he had women in his band. Standouts among his songs were 'Waiting on the Sky to Fall,' 'Galway Girl,' and 'Guitar Town.'

Los Lobos had powerful voices. They sang songs in Spanish and English, mixing new and old ones. Memorable tunes were 'Kiko and the Lavender Moon,' 'Te Canto con Amor,' and 'Roses Raining.'

MACEO PARKER
Mercy enjoyed Maceo Parker's funky six-piece band at the Triple Door, August 2. She liked the fact that the waitress remembered to provide candles for light to take notes without being asked.

Maceo Parker's saxophone defended his doctoral dissertation. Trumpet by Lee Hogan was hot. Bass by George Winston was soulful. Gerard Mann's guitar was out there. Gary Williams' keyboards were luscious. Vocals by Darlene Parker were sweet. People were up and dancing. High points were 'A Donde Fiesta,' 'Papa's Got a Brand New Bag,' and 'Stand By Me.'

THE KINSEY SICKS
Reality joined Mercy for the Kinsey Sicks' show, 'Electile Dysfunction: The Kinsey Sicks for President,' at the Triple Door, August 4. He liked their broad satire and excellent harmonies. Mercy found the drag queens singing barbershop music fun.

They opened with 'Vote for Me' (I Wasn't Born in Kenya'). 'Tsk Tsk,' 'Eliminate the Schools,' 'Peoria,' 'Yahweh,' 'Everyone's Coming Up Noses,' 'Love Child,' 'South of the Border,' 'We Arm the World,' 'I Will Watch You Tube,' 'T'aint It Love?,' 'Gonorrhea,' 'Be a Slut,' 'Sikh to Sheikh,' and 'Sell the Poor' followed nicely.

LADYSMITH BLACK MAMBAZO
Cuteness joined Mercy for Ladysmith Black Mambazo at ZooTunes August 5, on a beautiful evening. The male vocal group had tight harmonies. They were founded in 1960 by Professor Joseph Shabalala to spread the culture of South Africa. The chorus sings in Zulu. They include sons of the original group members. Translations of their song titles include 'This Woman Is Beautiful,' 'A Girl's Name Meaning Hope,' and 'Rain, Rain, Beautiful Rain.' They also performed the Paul Simon song 'Homeless.' The group received a standing ovation.

Another South African group, the Johnny Clegg Band, also performed. Memorable tunes were 'Love in the Time of Gaza,' 'Bullets for Bafazan,' 'The Crossing,' 'Jongosi,' and 'Great Heart.'

RORY BLOCK COMING SOON
Mercy and Cuteness are looking forward to seeing Rory Block at the Triple Door, August 16. Rory is a blues singer and guitarist who plays in a country blues style. You can get tickets at www.thetripledoor.net.
