Rock and
Roll bash
a smash
By TONY SCHWARTZ
Dancing to down-to-it, old-
time, rhythm-heavy rock-and-
roll is back, resplendent with a
big new following. A hard-core
contingent will tell you it's here
to stay.
A sock-hop drew a huge crowd
Friday night - perhaps 300
people at its height - in an
equally huge West Quad din-
ing room. Sparked by the live en-
tertainment from the two
groups at the core of the sock-
hop rage - Jimmy and the
Javelins and its female side-
kick, Chastity and the Belts -
the crowds rollicked and fro-
licked away for five sweaty
hours.
The catapulting popularity of
these 50's dances is beginning
to have a legendary feel. It all
beganas a small spontaneous
uprising in an innocuous Alice
Lloyd Hall Lounge, following
shortly after an inspiring. Sha-
Ni -Na concert at Homecoming,
1970. Unspecified plans for a
dance to old rock and roll mu-
sic attracted unexpected crowds
within minutes after songs like
"At The Hop" and "Leader of
the Pack" started blaring.
And it was there that the
formation of Jimmy and the
Javelin's took place. A group of
Alice Lloyd students standing
around decided to rig up a
couple of dance routines. and the
Javelin's name was the first one
that came to mind.
The rest is history. A couple
of sock-hops later an admirer
was grabbed as the first female
recruit and was dubbed Chastity
McFarlern: of late, Chastity has
flanked herself with two "Belts":
Big Mama and Chickie Larou.

Contemporary Jazz Quintet

Coltrane's cosmic

-Daily-Denny Gainer
jazz.

By HARVEY SLAUGHTER
Anyone who pretends to have
a serious interest in jazz or any
style of music for that matter
must sooner or later come up
hard against the legacy of John
Coltrane and his great tradition
of musical excellence which is
being carried on by his wife
Alice Coltrane.
Friday at Hill Auditorium,
UAC's Creative Arts Festival
and the hundreds of students
who came to hear and experi-
ence her played host to this in-
comparable musician. In a set
which lasted five hours and
which featured, Leon Thomas
and the Contemporary Jazz
Quartet, the stage was set for
what was to be the most out-
standing live performance since
my passage here at the Univer-
sity of Michigan.
The CJQ kicked off the night
and launched a rather impres-
sive rendition which showed
both insight and style. Unfor-
tunately, their performance was
marred by sporadic electronic
feed-back from their equipment
which only aggravated matters
since they were already too loud.
Coupling this with the fact that
their music was too reminiscent
of Miles Davis (particularly,
Bitches' Brew), I was pleased
but not overjoyed at their per-
formance. The CJQ's exit saw
the 'impromptu entrance of
John Sinclair as .M.C., who not
only advised the crowd of their
Constitutional rights to hear

and demand to hear more jazz,
but also of their rights to smoke
and demand to smoke when,
where and what they pleased.
This done he deftly introduced
Leon Thomas and plodded off-
stage. The "Cosmic Warbler"
brought the already ecstatic
audience to even greater enthu-
siasm with the masterful in-
cooperation of a multiplicity of
unique African instruments
which varied his rhythm and
pitch. His songs of universal
love and understanding were in-
terspersed with the mellow
warbling which has become so
synonomous with his name.
Some even maintain that his
performance was the highlight
of the show. But they were

wrong, inexcusably wrong. For
the crowd came to see Alice of
the incomparable Coltranes.
She glided upon the stage
garbed in the robes of her an-
cestors both possessing and em-
bodying all creative imagination
of the audience. To the applause
of many standing ovations, she
began to play, her hands were
like ghosts upon the keyboard
of the organ then the piano,
song after song of her late hus-
band. Twelve o'clock came and
still she played on; those who
did not understand and could
not understand began to leave.
By 12:30 only those who under-
stood remained and to these
she gave her universal con-
sciousness.
