American folk is a traditional affair. It’s historically patriotic. Old songs are handed down from generation to generation, evolving as they go. Musicians play together as a family, passing the torch from one to the next. Joachim Cooder is no exception to the rule. He’s Ry Cooder’s son, an incredible musician with a broad vision for folk. Joachim often played with his father and here his father accompanies him on Over That Road I’m Bound, his debut album dedicated to covering old-time musician Uncle Dave Macon’s repertoire. Macon, who was born in 1870 and died in 1952, was one of the founding fathers of folk and country. He was immediately recognisable thanks to his high-pitched nasal voice and lively banjo playing. Joachim Cooder does of course respect Macon’s sound, but he also modernises the songs, almost appropriating them. On the opening track he plays the electric mbira, a strange African-inspired instrument that’s like a cross between a xylophone and a thumb piano, with a graceful sound that sets the tone for the rest of the album. His arrangements bring Africa to mind (you can hear echoes of Vieux Farka Touré, Ali’s son on guitar) as well as Ireland and the Appalachians. The vocal harmonies glide around like a warm breeze and the string instruments (guitar, violin, banjo...) weave new patterns into the fabric of Uncle Dave Macon’s songs. The record is beautifully produced: subtle, modern, soft to the ear and never old-fashioned. Joachim Cooder is definitely his father’s son. © Stéphane Deschamps/Qobuz

Outlaw Country: Nashville Uprising

In the early 1970’s, a group of musicians from Nashville radically challenged the city’s musical tradition, its codes, its smooth productions and its clichés. With Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and a few other long-haired rebels who were deeply influenced by rock and roll, this new trend defied country music’s conservatism.

Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits: A Love-Hate Relationship

On 14 April 2018, Dire Straits were finally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Even Mark Knopfler seemed touched by this honour, hoping to be handed the award by the likes of Bob Dylan or Eric Clapton. But in the end, Dire Straits moved into the pantheon of rockers without their star, which made for one of the saddest ceremonies in history. The absence was almost symbolic of the relationship between the lead singer and his group.
