Smithsonian Institute Blues
Septet revisits catalog of Captain Beefheart turning out original-sounding covers. Lively jazzy, bluesy prog. Instrumentals except for 13,the live bonus track which features Robyn Hitchcock|
Liner notes give good descriptions of these.. All tracks great
1. Great solo steel guitar instrumental, folk-blues
2.Swinging littlest big-band with a middle-eastern, prog sound. Only vocals are “9 to 5” chant around halfway point, after which it kicks into overdrive.
3.Squonky horns wail over guitars
4.swinging rock, straight-ahead guitar with sax singing
5.party getting started with smoke in the air. Lots of wah at the end
6.quiet intro, spacey echo, ambient. Builds to a solitary defiance
7.easygoing (manic end). A little wacky trumpet solo in here..
8.rock, mid-fast, guitars in lead, no horns
9.horns & percussion only in first third, Beth Custer/Moondog-esque. Guitar-only section in 2nd half. Mid-slow, some interesting rhythms.
10.crazed beat poetry low in mix
11.Horns having a party, quoting “Joy To the World” over rounds then grooving with guitar.
13.Live recording. Weird blues, just steel guitar and vocal.
