Even as a serious-minded singer/songwriter, Cat Stevens never stopped being a pop singer at heart, and with Teaser and the Firecat he reconciled his philosophical interests with his pop instincts. Basically, Teaser's songs came in two modes: gentle ballads that usually found Stevens and second guitarist Alun Davies playing delicate lines over sensitive love lyrics, and up-tempo numbers on which the guitarists strummed away and thundering drums played in stop-start rhythms. There were also more exotic styles, such as the Greek-styled "Rubylove," with its twin bouzoukis and a verse sung in Greek, and "Tuesday's Dead," with its Caribbean feel. Stevens seemed to have worked out some of his big questions, to the point of wanting to proselytize on songs like "Changes IV" and "Peace Train," both stirring tunes in which he urged social and spiritual improvement. Meanwhile, his love songs had become simpler and more plaintive. And while there had always been a charming, childlike quality to some of his lyrics, there were songs here that worked as nursery rhymes, and these were among the album's most memorable tracks and its biggest hits: "Moonshadow" and "Morning Has Broken," the latter adapted from a hymn with words by English author Eleanor Farjeon. The overall result was an album that was musically more interesting than ever, but lyrically dumbed-down. Stevens continued to look for satisfaction in romance, despite its disappointment, but he found more fulfillment in a still-unspecified religious pursuit that he was ready to tout to others. And they were at least nominally ready to listen: the album produced three hit singles and just missed topping the charts. Tea for the Tillerman may have been the more impressive effort, but Teaser and the Firecat was the Cat Stevens album that gave more surface pleasures to more people, which in pop music is the name of the game.

Il jazz del nord, terre di fusione (I)

La pulizia del suono, il dialogo interpretativo e l'esportazione di suoni autoctoni hanno fatto dei paesi nordici il paradiso del jazz europeo. Gli estremi che contraddistinguono la musica scandinava hanno definito i nuovi limiti dell'improvvisazione: Soren Bebe, Esbjörn Svensson o Jan Garbarek sono alcuni dei talenti ormai affermatisi sulla scena internazionale.

Alice Cooper non scansa il pericolo

Il percorso di Alice Cooper è, innanzitutto, un caso eccezionale di sdoppiamento della personalità. Come ne “Lo strano caso del dottor Jekyll e del signor Hyde”, il cantante Vincent Furnier si è abbandonato al predominio dello showman Alice Cooper. Ma, come lui stesso ha ammesso, colui che parla sempre di Alice alla terza persone durante le sue interviste rimane un uomo piuttosto semplice e normale nel privato, lontano da quella scena in cui ha moltiplicato eccessi e provocazioni. Nel corso dei suoi cinquantaquattro anni di carriera, è inoltre possibile rilevare una certa schizofrenia nei suoi numerosi cambiamenti di stile. Anche se gli viene attribuita l’invenzione del shock rock, si è dilettato con tutto, o quasi, con più o meno successo, dal pop agli inizi dell’hard-rock, passando per l’heavy metal, la new wave o la musica industriale…

Henry Mancini, il più stiloso

Sofisticata, ironica, sensibile… Sono questi gli aggettivi spesso usati per descrivere la musica di Henry Mancini, considerato ancora oggi, a 23 anni dalla sua scomparsa, uno dei compositori pop più grandi e più influenti di sempre. Probabilmente perché accanto alle opere patinate e leggere a cui deve la sua reputazione (Colazione da Tiffany, La Pantera Rosa…), ha saputo mostrare anche la complessità del suo linguaggio attraverso composizioni più tormentate.
