    Recordings

    NakedMan San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus (KAO Info Systems) I liked opera until I read translations. What before had sounded like a bunch of flittering, intertwining, head-sung melodies (in the case of the Italian variety) or like the lowi...

    Hear This

    June of 44/Rex/Grassy Knoll/A Minor Forest Looking for a little mindless diversion to usher out the hand-wringing anguish of election season? Best look elsewhere, because the bands on these two triple bills share a mutual sense of foreboding -- a...

    The House of Tudor

    Observe the essential breakbeat in its natural habitat at Future Primitive Soundsession's "21st Century Urban Breakbeats." This exhibition will encompass the kinetic rhythms of the Chemical Brothers, the jungle groove of Goldie, the old-school hip ho...

    Hear This

    Glenn Spearman Double Trio In reference to his incendiary approach toward improvisation, Glenn Spearman once said: "I'm never gonna quit playing this way, man. ... That's my rifle -- my saxophone. It's also my peace pipe." Not unlike '60s-era Alb...

    Night Crawler

    Outside the 848 Community Space hangs a small, handwritten sign that reads quite simply "No Christians." This is promising. It is Allhallows' Eve after all, and true to the spirit of the night and character of the city I am in search of anything repu...

    Lone Nut - Bob Green's Grassy Knoll

    The Grassy Knoll's new lineup, performing in the San Francisco Jazz Festival's new music showcase at Bimbo's last Monday, sure looked like a real group -- guitar, bass, drums, trumpet. Offstage, however, the band is really nothing more than a figment...

    Quashing Analysis

    "Silk Road: Asian Concepts in Jazz" At the Herbst Theater, Thursday, Oct. 24. The first noticeable thing about the people who'd come to the Herbst to see "Asian-American jazz" (an iffy hybrid in concept, but a good one in practice) was their ap...

    Max Roach/Leon Parker Max Roach knows that the beat is the backbone of jazz. For half a century, along with fellow bop godfathers Art Blakey and Roy Haynes, his rhythmic energy has propelled some of the genre's greatest names: Charlie Parker, Diz...

    Chico O'Farrill Though rooted in the secular music of the Congolese, mambo was distinguished by modern Latin big bands (like that of Perez Prado) as a form where brass and sax riffs played against each other. Arrangers like Arturo "Chico" O'Farri...

    The House of Tudor

    The latest prefab musical thorn in our collective side comes in the form of a willowy, black-clad 18-year-old with lips that smack of collagen and a penchant for Maya Angelou. According to Fiona Apple, if "lyrics are conceived out of honesty" they ar...

    Suspicious Minds

    Her name alone would suffice for the purposes of imposed romance. Garrison Starr. Garrison: such a patriarchal fortress of a title to signify a 20-year-old female. And Starr: connoting not only the apogee of fame, but weirder relations such as drumme...

    Night Crawler

    South of Market, outside the Plunder Industries warehouse, a disheveled crowd gathers in the biting cold. A woman dressed in Mission-style earth tones and a khaki Army jacket zipped to her chin bounces from foot to foot, trying to generate heat. She ...

    Tim Berne Saxophonist Tim Berne's first exposure to jazz came in the early '70s with Julius Hemphill's classic Dogon A.D. The "wildness" of the music impelled him to drop out of school and venture to New York City, where he wound up studying with...

    Suspicious Minds

    Listening to history can be as cheap and easy as handing over 50 cents on a Saturday afternoon. One of the scratchy old records I bought on the street is called "I Can Hear It Now ..." -- "The history of an era spoken by the men who made it and narra...

    A snow-white marquee beckons from several blocks away. "Gospel Night," it reads -- a strangely pleasant contrast to the topless bars on the fringes of the Tenderloin. Underneath the glowing sign, a young, stylish couple stand wrapped in a loose embra...
