Brown: Beyond

Mud Bowl

By Ben Ticho
0HE BEGINNINGS were not aus-
picious. Outside Rick's on Friday
night raged the ska sounds of SLK and
the Mudbowl as masses of eager people
rushed tb get to their third party of the
evening. Inside, everything was
relatively quiet when the Tony Brown
Band finally began their set around ten
p.m. For some reason the regular Ann
Arbor reggase crowd failed to attend in
grea numbers and even Rick's
miniscule dance floor remained bare as
this fine ensemble from Wisconsin
Spened with the refrain, "Happy music
makes you feel so good."
Undaunted by what seemed a rather
bland initial reception, Tony Brown set-
tled back into his regular stage show,
with unhurried grace, singing "No tree
grow up ... from the top" and smiling

From .UPI
Skelton on TV
Red Skelton has a word for televi-
sion-"horrible." Skelton, in Rock
Island, Ill., said, "What they are doing
now is horrible." He predicted that in
five years TV would be composed only
of sports, special events and news. He
maid the networks use violence and sen-
sationalism to scare viewers. "TV is
deliberately frightening people so they
will stay home," he said. "If they can
create a fear, people stay home. If they
stay home, they watch television."
Osmond girl
Mary and Merrill Osmond have a new
baby, a 7-pound, 19-inch girl named
Heather. She's their first girl after
three sons. For those who can't keep
track, Merrill is the fifth son of George
Pand Olive Osmond. Heather makes the
older Osmonds' 26th grandchild. The
baby was born Friday at Latter Day
Saints Hospital in Salt Lake City. All
along, the doctors told Mary her child
would be a boy.
Suzanne to B'way
Suzanne Somers, the beautiful blonde
who used to star in the ABC sitcom
"Three's Company," will be making
her Broadway debut in a new musical,
The-Party Girl, with book and lyrics by
James Ackerson and music by Darryl
Curry. The book is about the mistress of
a senator who wants to run for the
presidency of the United States.
Kaye honored
Danny Kaye will receive the first
Special Recognition Award for Out-
standing Service at the 1982 Com-
munications Award Dinner of the In-
ternational- Center for the disabled.
He's being honored for his worldwide
humanitarian efforts. For more than 28
years Kaye has traveled the world as
UNICEF's ambassador-at-large. Also
being honored are Clifton Garvin, Jr.,
head of Exxon Corp., and Laurance
Rockefeller.

The Tony Borwn Band, with ar
album to its credit, hails from Ma
and is the first Midwestern ban(
heard that plays an "American-:

Sly Stone's "Thank You (falettin' me be

"Knockin' On Heaven's Door."'
Second, Mr. Brown has some very
able players behind him, including a
highly proficient drummer (whose
name escapes me). Neil, the rhythm
guitarist from Trinidad, and Ted Win-
field, the bassist from Iowa, perform
well, but the biggest contributions are
made by sax artist Robert Gordan. For
pure intensity, he plays the best
popular saxophone I've heard since Jay
Beckenstein and the rest of Spyro
Gyra's lesser crew played in Ann Arbor
last spring. On the groups obligatory
Marley cover, Gordan stuck two in-
struments into his mouth
simultaneously, providing one-person
brass harmony. Equally able on all
forms of sax (alto, etc.) he replaced the
standard guitar solos with such effec-
tiveness and continuity that what might
have proved' an inconsistency (he for-
sook Jamaican tie-dye for a classic
suburban green Fox) became a mark of
originality and assuredness.
Lastly, the Tony Brown Band plays
hard .., and long. They outlasted that

initial indifference and played a two-
hour set that left everyone a little
drained. Then they came back and
played some more. I finally departed
sometime after midnight, a victim of
heavy rhythm and kamikazes, but Tony
Brown played on and on.
And he played Rick's again Saturday
night with the same intensity. Anyone
who missed Tony Brown this time
around would do well to catch him on
his next trip through.
