    Toller Ausdruck der Woche: Fermenta cognitionis 

    Fundort: Lessing, Gotthold Ephraim: Hamburgische Dramaturgie. Stuttgart: Reclam 2013. S. 480.

    Endlich mal ein toller Ausdruck mit vollständiger Quellenangabe. Lessing benutzt ihn im 95. Stück seiner Hamburgischen Dramaturgie – und Überraschung, offenbar ist das eine Eigenprägung. Ich habe es jedenfalls nirgends sonst gefunden, für mich klang das sehr nach irgendeinem Lessingvorbild. Wird im Deutschen übersetzt mit „Gärstoffe der Erkenntnis“, was nach Jauchegrube klingt. Lessing wusste schon, was er da gemacht hat.

    Played around the little town, your head chock full of rum

    Jug band blues is an odd hybrid of folksy and urban, ragtime-y, jazzy and country blues elements. The reverbarting, murmuring sound of the jug, the rattling banjo and dominating harp make for an overall make-shift street corner atmosphere. Gus Cannon’s Jug Stompers were among the most successful and – since some of their numbers became blues standards as well as pop hits for other, much later artists – endurig combos for this comparatively small and short-lived genre. It’s restricted, free-wheeling sound is removed from deep blues through the hustling, bustling city sound it had to dwell in – playful, hurried, sketchy, but always amiable and slightly mischievous. There’s little here in terms of melody or heavy emotion, but the shaggy underdog attitude makes more than up for it, at least when consumed in slight doses – this is about entertainment, presented by next-door-rascals – their lyrics often revolve around trouble with small town judges for petty crimes. As one of the quintessential outfits of this sound, the Jug Stompers are among the quintessential roots of urban blues, there is a strict need to have their material, even if you mostly find yourself listening to the odd grumbling of «Viola Lee Blues» or the tumbling, hungover «Minglewood Blues» every so often. Good stuff.

    As for this particular collection, here’s from my series of «consumer guide reviews», so to speak:

    Gus Cannon recorded 26 sides (as in 13 singles) with the Jug Stompers. While the vinyl version (Yazoo 1989) of this CD contained all 13 sides plus the solo material Cannon recorded as Banjo Joe, this CD-reissue only contains tracks by the Jug Stompers and is even missing 2 of their sides («Riley’s Wagon» and «Springdale Blues»).

    If you want to avoid tedious holes in your collection and get the real deal (that is, Cannon’s solo stuff plus the Jug Stompers catalogue), you’ll need to get Gus Cannon’s Complete Recorded Works in Chronological Order: Volume 1 and theComplete Recorded Works in Chronological Order: Volume 2 (credited to Gus Cannon & Noah Lewis) by the Document Records label: They have all of it and some more side stuff, so they are the definite CD-picks. If you then get Cannon’s revival record Walk Right In from 1963, you’re about set.

    Having said that, when this came out, it was the most complete Jug Stompers compilation on a single CD – which it remains until today. All the other single disc compilations claiming to be complete have less track than this one. If you want an overview of how to acquire the complete recordings of Cannon and his Jug Stompers, compare my list Complete Blues Discographies: What to Get.

    Keith Jarrett: The Impulse! Story 

    Rating: 3.7/10
    Rated as
    : Anthology
    Compilation Status
    : Newbie Baiting
    Released: 2006
    Recorded: 1973–1976
    Specific Genre: ECM Style Jazz
    Main Genre: Jazz
    : Avant-Garde Jazz, Post-Bop, Bebop, Piano Jazz
    Label: Impulse!

    1 De Drums 2 The Rich (and the Poor) 3 Blue Streak 4 Treasure Island 5 Introduction and Yaqui Indian Folk Song 6 Victoria 7 Everything that Lives Laments 8 Konya 9 Bop-Be 10 Mushi Mushi 11 Silence

    Good music, very questionable reason of existence as a compilation

    Problems first: This compilation is called „The Impulse Story“, so the title suggests a sort of narrative for Jarrett’s American Quartet recordings for that label (1973–1976) – or it should, anyway. More complete compilations and box sets of Jarrett’s Impulse output had been issued before this (occupying both in name and completeness the „Impulse Years“ tag), and the question arises to what end there has to be a single disc compilation of that period. A plot? Sure. But there is no plot here, so let’s take a look.

    Academically (and moronically) reconstructing the track choice, you‘ll be left with the knowledge that seven of the eleven tracks (make that ten actually – „Victoria“ wasn‘t issued on Jarrett‘s original Impulse albums – but it was first released on The Impulse Years: 1973–1974, so there is no point to view it as the selling point here) stem from just two of the eight albums while three albums aren’t represented at all. You‘ll also notice that the chronology hasn’t been touched (leading to the fact that the four tracks of Treasure Island come in a row). And you‘ll notice that the track choice as well as the liner notes were done by jazz expert Ashley Kahn. I was hoping to find an answer to the choices he made in his liner notes, and he only hints at it by mentioning that the last four albums for Impulse stem from roughly the same sessions Jarrett did in 1975/76. As there is no other information directly relating to the track choice, we’re left with a bunch of questions (why is it called story? Why such a stress on Treasure Island? Why a single disc compilation about a guy whose work has been documented excellently and comprehensively, and whose specialty were 20-minute-suites?), we‘re left to construct a) the scheme that this was called story to imply a personal and artistical ‚development‘ of Jarrett‘s Impulse years and b) the suspicion that the last four albums didn’t contribute so well to represent that arc (as they were part of temporarily close sessions as opposed to long evolution processes). Suspicion also arises this is a cash-in to lure in newbies. Who needs this?

    Call me picky, but I simply expect better from the normally unerring Impulse!-label.

    Economics aside, let’s take a look at the material. Like the albums it’s taken from, it is quite alright to excellent, a particular stand-out is the opener „De Drums“, with its swinging, swirling, breezy and moving pattern, akin to cape jazz, followed by some shorter tunes that all share the same airy and weightless atmosphere – an overall summer feeling permeates this. Things get a bit edgier in the last third, when the group shifted its sound away from the acoustic improvs from the beginning, and went for a less free-flowing, harder bopping approach once again (very sneaky by calling that last album Bop-Be). I prefer to listen to the first half, excellent for mornings and sunny afternoons, very laid-back music. Maybe that was the point, to lounge-ify Jarrett‘s Impulse output, possibly cross-financed by Starbucks. A thin plot: Good music, very questionable reason of existence as a compilation. As I said, I can’t imagine anyone seriously interested in this who wouldn’t want the albums in the first place.

    1: Fort Yawuh (1973)
    2–5: Treasure Island (1974)
    6: from the Backhand (1975) sessions, but first released on The Impulse Years: 1973–1974 (1997)
    7: Mysteries (1976)
    8: Byablue (1977)
    9–11: Bop-Be (1977)

    Toller Ausdruck der Woche: Beflegelung 

    Beflegelung, die

    Fundort: in der Studie: Wendler, Anton Wilhelm: Der Wiener Journalismus der Josephinischen Epoche und seine Stellungnahme zu den Problemen der dramatischen Literatur und des Theaters (unter besonderer Berücksichtigung der publizistischen Tätigkeit Johann Friedrich Schinks in Wien). Diss. Wien 1958.

    Eine Beflegelung ist eine wüste Beschimpfung, auch als Verb verfügbar: jemanden beflegeln. Ein Superwort. Ich habe nicht notiert, ob es in Wendlers Studie von ihm selbst oder als Zitat aus josephinischer Zeit vorkam. Die Befunde aus dem DWDS (drei Belege bei Tucholsky) legen aber nahe, dass Wendler das Wort selbst verwendet, weil das Wort im DWDS-Korpus nur fürs frühmittige 20. Jahrhundert, nicht fürs 18., überhaupt belegt ist. Tolles Wort, ab sofort werden Leute wieder beflegelt, nicht beschimpft oder beleidigt.
