    Toller Ausdruck der Woche: Arrieregarde – Nachtrag! 

    In diesem Beitrag hatte ich mich sehr darüber gewundert, warum für Avantgarde die metaphorische (kultur- und kunstprogressive) Bedeutungsvariante im Duden lexikalisiert ist, während dies für Arrieregarde nicht der Fall ist, obwohl ein Blick in ein DWDS-Korpus zeigt, dass im 20. Jahrhundert auch hier eigentlich nur die metaphorische (kultur- und kunstregressive) Bedeutung verbucht ist.

    Deshalb habe ich beim Institut für Deutsche Sprache (IDS) nachgefragt. Und tatsächlich, nicht einmal vier Tage später kam die erlösende Antwort. Klar, sie ist so allgemein wie die Frage, aber trotzdem: Das ist sprachbenutzer*innenorientierter Service, ich bin baff. Zehn von zehn Punkten für das IDS. Hier die Antwort:

    Kontige Objekte: Duden vs. Klopapier 

    Diese Wörter wurden laut der Online-Duden-Webseite so ungefähr Mitte März 2020 „häufig nachgeschlagen“. Natürlich (und hier für die Nachwelt): Das sind die Wörter bzw. Produkte, ohne die es die Welt zu jener Märzenzeit nicht durch die Corona-Krise geschafft hätte. Bei Google-Trends erstaunt eine solche Suche also nicht unbedingt (man muss ja googeln, ob’s im Supermarkt um die Ecke noch „Reis“ gibt und wieviel 500 Gramm „Pasta“ jetzt kosten). Bei einem Wörterbuch ist die Schlagwortsuche doch kurios. Meine erste Annahme war, dass der Online-Duden einfach schummelt und sich die Wörter bei Google Trends o.ä. besorgt hat – das hat aber nur sehr bedingt mit den Google Trends jener Zeit übereingestimmt („Klopapier“ wurde tatsächlich wie verrück gegoogelt, aber z.B. für „Pasta“ habe ich keine entsprechende Google-Statistik gefunden). Jedenfalls liegt die Vermutung nahe, dass die „häufig nachgeschlagenen Wörter“ mehr oder weniger stark kuratiert sind. Das ist ja auch sinnvoll, sonst würden dort konsequent Dinge wie „wi(e)dersprechen“ und „R(h)yt(h)mus“ die Charts anführen. Ich hab mal beim Duden nachgefragt:

    Die Antwort steht noch aus. Es bleibt spannend: Klopapier. Pasta. Pesto. Reis.

    6. Arya doesn’t go to Winterfell and heads for Westros while Bran arrives to Winterfell and after quoting „Chaos is a ladder“ Little finger leaves for Westros, Bran hands Littlefinger’s dagger to Sansa and explains what he knows about Littlefinger and Jon’s true name. Sansa decides to keep Jon’s true name a secret from the northerners for now since she doesn’t know how people will react knowing that the Lord of the North is related to The Mad King. When Littlefinger arrives to Westros he tries to advice Cercei on how to take the north in hopes Sansa will fall from power, Cercei sends an army to take over and Littlefinger goes with them. Meanwhile Bran tells everyone about the white walkers but no one believes him except for Sansa and Jon but they can’t convince people so Sansa seeks help from Tyrion, she explains Jon’s true name to him and he believes her so he tries to convince Daenerys to join them but she’s not convinced and is too busy planing her take on Westros to afford it, she only agrees to send a ship with enough dragon glass and very few of her men. Without any more options Jon trains his men while winter comes and the dead advances enough to be seen near Castle Black. By this point Littlefinger’s near the area and hears this, word comes to Cercei about these white walkers just as Daenerys is nearing Westros to attack. Cercei takes advantage of Tyrion being the hand of Daenerys and calls out a truce, after a long talk with Tyrion Daenerys agrees and both their armies are supposed to be fighting along side the northerns against the white walkers while in fact Cercei’s not sending any more soldiers than the ones that are at Littlefinger’s command. Back in Winterfell Littlefinger arrives with his army claiming they’re allies and that the whole kingdom is in a truce thanks to him, Jon and Sansa have to work with them and Jon heads to the wall leaving Sansa to rule the north, with all that’s going on Jon doesn’t know Littlefinger stays with her and only half of his army heads to the wall with them. With winter upon them the armies are sent beyond the wall while a few stay behind to meet with Daenerys who arrives near the Castle Black with her dragons, her only protection being Jora, Tyrion..and her dragons. Everyone’s in disbelief while Jon is called to meet Daenerys, she has her doubts about Jon’s true name and they fall into a disagreement since Daenerys doesn’t want all of her Dragons to participate in battle, after Tyrion explains that the dragons will possibly be their only advantage her only option is to accept the risk so all of them charge beyond the wall in the black of the night, but with the dark they can’t tell the difference between soldiers and white walkers, Rhaegal attacks a crowd where Jon’s being attacked and kills both the white walkers and the soldiers, Daenerys notices this and flies with Drogon to the spot where she knows Jon was fighting, Jon’s heavily wounded by the white walkers but he managed to survive Rhaegal’s fire so she takes him with Drogon’s help back to Castle Black for his wounds to be attended, convinced his her only family left. Rhaegal and Viserion are left to fight and they can only attack where there are lots of white walkers to prevent more soldiers from dying and they take a good amount out but Viserion is far enough to see the Night King, he charges after him but the knight king attacks with the spike, Viserion is turned a white walker, he is killing a lot of soldiers but soon he is fought by Rhaegal and the 2 die in this fight leaving only Drogon alive. Daenerys hears this and is in pain, in the middle of it all she realizes Cercei’s soldiers were small in number and blames Tyrion claiming he’s just trying to destroy her army so she banishes him, he has to obey and leaves her grieving and maddened. Back in Winterfell Littlefinger’s army is taking advantage of the few soldiers left behind and take over the north, Sansa surrenders without any choice. Word comes to Tyrion about Cercei’s army and he tries to level with Jamie about this scam, Jamie is trying to convince Cercei to give the throne away to prevent destruction from Daenerys‘ wrath. Cercei declines knowing that one dragon is easier to be defeated than 3, claiming Jamie’s still on Tyrion’s side she kills him in the spot with a sword though the heart delivered by the mountain, thinking his child is all she will need as a family she decides to send all of her men (including the ones in Winterfell) to protect the castle as she’s in the throne with the mountain as her guard, not going down without a fight. Meanwhile in Castle Black Jon’s better and showing sympathy to Daenerys, they bond over grief and he promises her he’ll fight by her side if they make it out alive, with this she reminds herself of her final goal and agrees to keep fighting this war. 3 armies are fighting against the white walkers and The Night king is outsmarted by Bran’s strategy who controls Drogon and kills him, his army falls along with him. Back in Winterfell lots of homes are being destroyed and Sansa’s being kept a prisoner, Littlefinger’s telling her that Jon’s dead because of a dragon and that he is her only chance of survival now that 2 potential rulers are their enemies, he proposes they join their people, Sansa says yes, knowing it’s useless to oppose him, so she goes free and Little finger’s named Lord of Winterfell with Sansa as his Lady, most of the allies are dissapointed and leave Winterfell convinced the Starks are weak, when they’re alone they’re making plans to pretend that Winterfell’s being conquered in the name of Cercei so they could invite her and kill her while she visits, but Sansa knows this can take years and that Cercei’s going to put a price on her head when she hears she’s a Lady, so she pretends to agree on this plan and while he’s turned his back on her she puts the dagger to his throat, he tries to persuade her telling her he’s on her side, he declares his love for her mother and her, he promises that he won’t kill her no matter the price, but she tells him she knows he betrayed his father, his blood turns cold and he keeps insisting she won’t survive without him, she’s done listening to him and slices his throat. Not long after she calls her few loyal men and declares war on the Lanister soldiers that are left, without their captain the small army that was left is defeated by the northerners. Back to Westros Jon accompanies Daenerys and they join armies to take over the Red Keep now that the white walkers are defeated, Daenerys tries her best to trust Jon despite what she’s been through but he has to follow her orders no matter how against them he is. They basically destroy the city with Drogon’s fire and Cercei’s explosives but they end up winning, the city’s filled with dead bodies from both armies and when they enter the throne room to look for Cercei she’s nowhere to be found. In the end she took Jamie’s advice and ran away after seeing Drogon destroy her army in one swipe, she knows it’s useless to fight now and finds Tyrion standing in her way, she explains Jamie died in battle and that she’s pregnant with his child while tears escape from her face, she blames him for Jamie’s death saying he basically committed suicide because he was so sure they would lose, Tyrion knows she’s come undone, he doesn’t want to see his whole family fade because of him, so he lets her get away and his only condition is to never show her face again, she leaves the room and reunites with the mountain as her guard to sail with Euron, she’s planning to convince him the child is his and maybe go back to conquer her kingdom once her army grows, but just as she think’s she’s safe the mountain kills her, who turns out to be Arya. Now with everything settled Danerys is in conflict since the throne technically belongs to Jon, he doesn’t want it and leaves for Winterfell to recollect his fallen lands leaving Daenerys to be the queen of ashes

    John Lee Hooker told me one day, he said: if you don’t get it like this you’re wrong

    Let’s see, there is a lot to unpack here. This is advertised as the sessions for the „Sittin‘ In With“ label, issued by an obscure Italian label („Universe“) focusing on vintage reissues. And while a slight majority of the tracks in fact stems from these 1951 sessions (in New York and Houston), there are some tracks that Hopkins made in 1948/49 for the Gold Star Records label (1.10–1.16, with 1.14 „Big Mama Jump“ actually from 1947). Several of the tracks were issued later, under labels such as Mainstream, Time, Jax and Mercury.

    This makes some sense: Producer Bob Shad had founded numerous labels, Sittin‘ In With, Time, Jax, Mainstream and others, then later sold Sittin‘ In With to Mercury (under which umbrella he started EmArcy, so Bob Shad turns out to be… something of a giant. He is also the grandfather of Judd Apatow. Judd’s sister Mia Apatow manages the label’s properties nowadays). And Shad issued records under his labels that were licensed from and had been earlier recorded by the Gold Star label. This explains the numerous labels involved – they all had something to do with Bob Shad and all the recordings were made – at least very roughly – during contiguous sessions.

    This is where the good news for this compilation stop because to say that the obscure „Universe“ label here did a shoddy job would be an understatement. Let’s see: First, there is no rhyme or reason to what made this double disc from these sessions. These are neither the complete Sittin‘ In With sessions nor is there are a comprehensive approach to the sublabel tracks. Secondly, here is no sense at all in the few scattered Gold Star tracks, no comprehensiveness, no session cohesion, no chronology. Lots of holes. Furthermore, some of the information and track titles are plain wrong („Somebody’s Got to Go“ here is a different number called „Zolo Go“ or „Zologo“). Worst of all, contrary to the information given here, three of the tracks were not recorded by Lightnin‘ Hopkins at all: „Cairo Blues“, „Bad Whiskey“, and, in a major plot twist, the bloody [i]title track[/i] „Ground Hog Blues“ from 1948/49 (for Gold Star). Why? Gold Star also housed a young aspiring bluesman called Lil‘ Son Jackson (check out his discography for reference), who could mimic Hopkins to a tee as he learned the blues from his mentor and who is often lumped together on large Texas blues compilations alongside Hopkins and others.

    This kind of reckless editing gives me fits. Even worse: This collection is completely obsolete, as you can get the entire sessions elsewhere, with no holes and no need for scavenging needlessly scattered tracks on other collections. The definite one being JSP’s All the Classics: 1946–1951. In fairness, that huge collection for some reason misses „Tap Dance Boogie“ and „You Do Too (I’ll Never Forget the Day)“, both of which are here. But you can get those and more on serious collection like Hello Central – The Best of Lightnin‘ Hopkins (which incidentally has some tracks missing on All the Classics).

    So, be all that as it may: This is an obsolete, borderline useless slapdash cheapo ragbag to which you should give no serious consideration. The music here of course is laidback, great acoustic and electric Texas blues, but the poor and careless research ruins the fun of owning this set with overall great music. There are numerous collections that are far more serious and superior. I also worry at night about the fact that this has become one of the more wide-spread compilations, but maybe I should know better.

    John Coltrane: Ascension 

    Rating: 8.8/10
    Rated as

    Like a seagull thrown around by the tides

    This is Coltrane’s „free jazz“-album which might alienate people who mainly go for his 1950s hard bop and ballads. Up to this point, Coltrane already had been flirting and entangled with avant-garde here and there, but this is the wedding announcement. If you listen to free jazz at all, I’d say this is the second record you should pick up (you can figure out the first for yourself). And, to exactly no one’s surprise, it’s great. The energy is amazing, makes you feel like a seagull thrown around by the tides, waves and winds, and I regularly find myself having gone through these 40 minutes without really noticing in the best way – this record sort of suspends my sense of time.

    While free jazz shouldn’t make you „tune out“ mentally, you really don’t have a lot of listening „work“ to do here: The sheer, frenzied soul displayed by the very unususal set-up just carries you right through the piece. The performance of the (large) collective is so good it makes your brain forget that this is, at least supposedly, „cerebral“ music. It is also a very different approach compared to Ornette Coleman’s Free Jazz: While that album was more of a thoroughly collective effort, Ascension follows a pretty tight structure that has ensemble and soloists alternating every few minutes in a specific order (everyone involved gets one solo, except Garrison and Davis on the double-basses get a duet). That’s not better or worse than Coleman’s stress on collective dynamics of development, but it does give you slightly more to hold on to structurally when you’re starting out in the genre. As the record that announced Coltrane‘s complete take-off into the stratosphere, it’s pretty bold and astounding in terms of full realisation – no „transitional“ aspects here.
