Sir Richard Bishop's records may be revered by guitar geeks for their sometimes staggering technical proficiency, but his equally astonishing command of a variety of global traditions and popular styles makes them equally, if not more attractive. He always provides a way in for virtually any listener to encounter whatever world(s) he is exploring. The Tangier Sessions is a different kind of record: First, he uses one instrument throughout, and it is as much about the instrument as the player. While in Geneva, Bishop went into a shop looking for a small travel guitar. Not seeing anything he wanted, he went to leave when the man behind the counter man signaled him, took him into the back room, and pulled a guitar from a closet. No model number or concrete luthier identification was present. The only mark was a sticker that said "C. Bruno" on the inside. Bruno made guitars but he also distributed them, and this one had none of his signature markings. Bishop played it for 40 minutes, entranced by its sound. After inquiring about the price, he left, knowing he couldn't afford it. But he was obsessed. Two days later, he returned to the store and played it again. He left discouraged because the proprietor was unwilling to bargain. But Bishop could not shake the instrument's pull. The next day, to the knowing grin of the counterman, he put down a deposit. After purchasing the guitar, he took it to Tangier to play a show. He stayed in an apartment in the old city. One room was completely decorated in classic Moroccan tiles. Every night for a week Bishop improvised alone on the old guitar, capturing the music on a small digital recorder. The story of the guitar's acquisition and the unique situation for the recording are captured on The Tangier Sessions. These seven pieces flow together even as they move through sounds that have haunted the city for centuries: Those of Arabic and West African cultures meeting those of the Mediterranean and colonial Europe. Bishop is completely absorbed by the sound of his instrument, even possessed by it, exploring its nuances, idiosyncrasies, and rich tonality -- unusual for an instrument so small. On "Bound in Morocco," one can hear the echo of an oud playing traces of a folk melody wrapped in Spanish classical tradition. "Mirage" melds the spiky Malian blues runs to Middle Eastern modalism. Closer "Let It Come Down" weaves the medieval era of courtly love through late 19th century Anglo-Celtic music and West African folk song. The Tangier Sessions' sound is warm and steeped in passion, wonder, and fascination. Here, geography, history, myth, and magic are translated through an unknown guitar in the hands of a virtuosic musician.

Americana, alle radici dell’America

Il nome saprà anche di trovata commerciale un po’ fumosa, ma il genere Americana designa da una ventina d’anni quel mix di rock, country, blues e rhythm&blues. E come in ogni grande famiglia che si rispetti, si ritrovano un po’ tutti i personaggi: la figlia ribelle, lo zio colto, il padre irrequieto, la cugina esaltata…

Johnny Cash dietro le sbarre

Due leggendari album dal vivo pubblicati alla fine degli anni Sessanta hanno dato un enorme spinta alla carriera di Johnny Cash trasformandolo in una star internazionale. Si tratta di due dischi diversi da tutti gli altri: sono stati registrati in prigione. Ma cosa ha portato il Man in Black a ritrovarsi in una sala da concerto così insolita?

Mark Knopfler e Dire Straits, un amore difficile

Il 14 aprile 2018, i Dire Straits facevano il loro ingresso nella Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ed erano in parecchi a pensare che fosse il momento dell’ «ora o mai più». Perfino Mark Knopfler sembrava toccato da quest’onore, nella speranza di essere premiato da Bob Dylan o Eric Clapton. Alla fine, i Dire Straits sono entrati nel pantheon dei rocker senza la loro star, che ha disertato una cerimonia tra le più tristi della storia. Quasi un simbolo del rapporto tra lui e il suo gruppo.
