Leontyne dazzles with priceless vocals

By Gordon Jay Frost
HE CROWD was typically caddy, bourgeois and
we l dressed. It was an event for many of them, no
doubt, as they mingled and jabbered and then sat
down in their main floor seats. But there was
something acutely different.
First, the audience was remarkably integrated.
Secondly, the entire auditorium -was sold out (with
he exception of some standing room tickets at eight
ollars each). Lastly, the haughtiness of the crowd
as at a minimum.
Leontyne, Price entered in a flourish wearing
radiant black gown. David Garvey, slightly hun-
bhed, walked in and immediately got down to
business. (Incidentally, since. I have little infor-
mation on Garvey, I cannot adequately describe him.
Needless to say, however, he is one of the finest and
most understated accompanists I have ever seen).

Price calmed the applause with one trademark
sweeping bow. She had already established a rapport
with the audience.
In her first three short pieces, Price sounded won-
derful, but seemed to need a glass of water; a note
didn't come as delicately as she intended when she
reached for a high B-flat and her pause offstage was a
bit longer than usual.
When she returned to pick up with four Strauss
pieces, for which she believes her voice is now most
appropriate, Price showed incomparable intelligence
and strength. She seemed to understand von Schack's
intention in Strauss' version on Standchen.
Her lower range was powerful, rich and dark and
the hall was a good setting for this quality; long
sustains could almost be felt by all member of the
audience.
In the last piece before intermission, the "La
Mamma Morta" aria from Giordano's Andrea
Chenier, she gave into her full range of operatic ex-

pression. The audience, in turn, gave in to her.
True to her convictions, she sang a number of songs
in English including Margaret Bond's rendition of
Hughes' Minstrel Man and Dougherty's is thank you
God drawn from e.e. cummings. The former was
deep-seated in spiritual veign, the latter with an
exquisite rising line. She performed both so
beautifully that it was difficult to muster up the
energy to applaude.
In completing the program, but not the performan-
ce, Price sang Witness and Ride On King Jesus in a
manner that would malre any James Cleveland fan
toss out those California Community Choir recording
for the untarnished memory of Price'sfull, heartfelt
and pure interpretations. They could not have
seemed more authentic.
To complete the evening, she sang six encores,
ranging from "Summertime" from Porgy and Bess
(the best rendition I have ever heard) to a Puccini
aria.

Los Lobos (The Lobos)

journey to Joe's

.

y Larry Dean
OS LOBOS: The Wolves. Carramba!
The latest in the Latino music ex-
losion taking the stage at Joe's
uesday night? Dios mio!
But you may ask, what Latino music
xplosion? And if I were to drop the
erm "Tex Mex," you might think,
hat has a party mix made up of stray
hex cereals, nuts and pretzels got to
aowith Latino music?
Well, if you're not too completely con-
used by now, I will attempt to explain
11 this lingo to you, and perhaps, when
he explaining is all done, you will be
onvinced to go see a purportedly-ex-
ellent quartet at Joe's tonight.
Los Lobos coincidentally hail from
nother similarly-named place, Los
ngeles (ever hear of it? Do I see: few
ands?). They have been around for
ell over a decade now, having started
out in auspiciously as an acoustic four-
ome. That all seemed well and natural
or the nature of the music as well as
he venues that would accept it at the
ime.
The music, comprised mostly of
exican folk songs, satisfied a certain
ultural desire, but soon the bandmem-
ers began to feel a tad cut-off from the
ther nossibilities at hand. So Conrad
ozaio, Cesar Rosas, Louie Perez, and
avid Hidalgo-alias Los

Lobos-picked up electric guitars and
let the boundaries crumble away. Soon
they were playing an inspired mix of R
& B, country, Mexican folk, and good ol'
rock and roll.: There were even elemen-
ts of the so-called Tex Mex music
popularized by Doug Sahm to be heard
in their sound, so lovely as it was. . . a
hybrid of rock and cultural tradition.
After gaining the attention of both the
Blasters (themselves "traditionalists"
of a kind) and Slash Records, the
Blasters' label, Los Lobos signed on to
the roster and produced a seven-song
EP, . . . and a time to dance, produced
by Steve Berlin, saxman with the
Blasters, and T-Bone Burnette, ex of
the Alpha Band and Bob Dylan's
Rolling Thunder Review, and now a
full-fledged solo artist in his own right.
The EP has received unanimous ac-
claim from critics for its sprightly,
original approach to many age-old and
traditional musical formats, and for the
band's naturally tight sound after ten
years' playing together.
There is an abundance of Latino-
flavored music, currently the rage on
the West Coast. As a result, groups like
Los Illegales and Los Lobos are gigging
frequently, and various others are
adopting a country-fied sound, which is,
in itself, becoming.more and more ac-
ceptable to audiences these days.
Los Lobos start with a cultural
heritage and turn it into a rave-up good

time. They've made it a point to accent
the fact that they are a "party" band,
and welcome any or all initiates to the

Latino rock forum.

and cost, you can call 665-JOES.
