Plays John Lennon 2012 [no label, 1CD]

La Villete Jazz Festival. Live at the Grande Halle de La Villette, Paris, France; August 31, 2012. Very good audio (ripped from HDTV broadcast). Incomplete show, complete broadcast.

In 2011, John Frisell released his John Lennon tribute album, All We Are Saying… In an interview with Pop Matters, Frisell said: “What was amazing about this project is that I didn’t touch the music really. I didn’t think of it as a chance for me to reconstruct or re-harmonize the songs. Everything we did was from looking at the original version. The power of the songs is such that the songs themselves brought us together as a band. The songs themselves create the arrangements. It’s more than just the corporate machine ramming them down our throat for our whole life. It is amazing on a technical, harmonic/melodic level. The songs are not all that complicated, but they transcend things - they touch everybody. This music was massively commercially successful, but it was because it was touching people.”

“We didn’t figure the arrangements out ahead of time. We just started playing - we went for it. These are musicians I’ve been playing with for years and years, so there’s not a lot we have to talk about. I would write out what I though was pretty close to the original in lead sheets, but that was it.”

  5. Hitler’s accession to the Chancellorship of Germany triggered one of history’s largest exoduses of brains and talent, from which both Germany and Austria have only begun to recover.

  9. U L E (ugly little eunich)was never a plaster caster, but I bet he’s always been an asshole.

  10. I’m amazed at the number of rockers that have big penises. As a girl I’m usually disappointed when I sleep with a guy . Most are in the 5 to 7 inch range . Occasionally I’ll get a 10 incher to a foot long and very thick , but those are rare exceptions. It seems based on comments that most musicians are exceptionally large . Lucky groupies I guess .

  14. M Berle reportedly had a prick that measured anywhere from 16 to 20 . He would actually engage in whip it out contests in saunas . He retired undefeated.

  15. I think Frank Sinatra has him banned from participating in sauna gang bangs famous by the rat pack in the early 60s . Frank had an ego and couldn’t stand the fact that Berle had a few inches on him .
