Although commercially successful, Chicago's previous long-player, Chicago VI (1973), had not been received as warmly from both the critics as well as from some bandmembers. Both parties expressed their dissatisfaction with the lighter fare and significantly shorter material. In response, the combo briefly returned to their previously tried and true methodology on their follow-up album. As such, Chicago VII (1974) was not only a double LP, but much of the effort likewise returned them to their former jazz/rock glory while continuing the middle-of-the-road (MOR) ethos that was concurrently impacting the pop charts. Nowhere is this more evident than the trio of sides extracted as singles -- including the Top Ten hits "(I've Been) Searching So Long," "Call on Me," and "Wishing You Were Here." The latter of which features some stunning backing vocals from Beach Boys Dennis Wilson, Carl Wilson, and Alan Jardine. The group were continuing in their incorporation of additional musicians, most notably Laudir DeOliveira (percussion) and David J. Wolinski (ARP synthesizer) -- both of whom are prominently featured throughout the sides. The opening instrumentals, including "Prelude to Aire," "Aire," and "Devil's Sweet," reflect Daniel Seraphine's (drums) tremendously underrated skills as a writer as well as the combo's recently underutilized talents as ensemble musicians. All three tracks provide a brilliant showcase for the brass/woodwind section(s) to flex their respective muscles, drawing heavily upon the styles of Weather Report and to some extent Miles Davis and Santana. The nature of their seemingly experimental fusion is stretched out even further on "Italian From New York." The cut includes some interesting ARP interjections from Robert Lamm, whose decidedly free-form contributions weave alongside some rubbery and liquefied fretwork courtesy of Terry Kath (guitar/vocals). His lead bobs around Lamm's synthesizer and an equally prominent cool-toned Fender Rhodes keyboard bed. The second half of Chicago VII directly contrasts the less structured instrumentals with more inclusive sides such as the previously mentioned hits "Call On Me" and "Wishing You Were Here." Other highlights include Lamm's funky mid-tempo "Life Saver," Peter Cetera's (bass/vocals) laid-back and unencumbered "Happy Man," and a double shot from Kath in the form of two serene ballads, "Song of the Evergreens" and "Byblos" -- which features some stellar acoustic strumming. This collection would be Chicago's final two-disc set by the original lineup and offers the best of the band as improvisational instrumentalists as well as concise, emotive vocalists and song crafters.

Sofia Coppola on Air

En su nuevo film, La seducción, Sofia Coppola cuenta de nuevo con la colaboración de Thomas Mars, cantante del grupo francés Phoenix, habitual en las películas de la realizadora. Una buena ocasión para revisitar algunos de los mejores pasajes musicales en la filmografía de la hija de Francis Ford, y en particular la banda sonora de culto de Las vírgenes suicidas, firmada por el conjunto versallés Air.

Know your Lemmy

El 24 de diciembre de 2017 Lemmy Kilmister habría cumplido 72 años, 40 de ellos al frente de Motörhead, el grupo de rock & roll más ruidoso de la historia. Un cáncer fulminante se llevó a este icono que muchos tenían por incombustible, puesto que su muerte había sido anunciada más de una vez para ser desmentida poco después. La trayectoria de Motörhead, que lógicamente termina con él, se ha extendido a lo largo de cuatro décadas, con sus inevitables altibajos. Y ha dado pie a numerosos malentendidos, sin que nada afectara lo más mínimo al huracán sonoro desencadenado desde encima de los escenarios...

J.J. Cale, blues a cámara lenta

A más de cinco años de la muerte de J.J. Cale, su música sigue más viva que nunca. Con su atípica mezcla de blues, folk, country y jazz, este guitarrista tan admirado por Clapton y que residió durante años en una caravana fue uno de los ermitaños más influyentes del rock.
