Jon Hassell studied with Stockhausen and eventually collaborated with Brian Eno and Peter Gabriel. I found this bit from his website about the album I played today, maarifa street, that struck a chord with his outlook on food:




Before the 2002 Montreal Jazz Festival concert

from which some of the Maarifa Street music

came, we ate at a "fusion cuisine" restaurant

called Kiwi. Something like watermelon and tomato

salad was on the menu and it occurred to me that this

type of dish—surprise combinations of familiar

elements—was not a bad metaphor for the sort of

music that we were doing (especially the track called

'Maarifa Street'). But while fusion cuisine

seems open ended with possible combinations,

the use of "fusion" to describe music has become

a dirty word, narrowly defined to mean jazz merged

with rock elements (a style which soon became cliché).


So imagine a music which is more like fusion cuisine—

with a much bigger menu of choices.

"Etta Rocks the House" - Etta James live in Nashville, 1963. I am appalled that I haven't (knowingly) heard this before. Knockout live album.


Thank you for this.


NOTE TO DANIEL: You gotta hear this, if you haven't already.

a great album - but I now restrict my live R&B choices to Sam Cooke @ Harlem Square
