Corea 's back
in good form

Soft War debuts
art rock, poetry
at Blind Pig

A

By arwulf arwulf
Even if you've given up on Chicks
Corea for the time being, you will
probably find grounds for conten-
tment in his latest release. This is
a welcome gust of creativity from
a man who has embraced Scien-
tology, God help us, and who came
through town with lots of elec-
tronics a few weeks ago and resor-
ted to some rather formulated tac-
tics. It is perfectly all right for a
man to cop out once in awhile, and
anyone who can make enough
money to live comfortably has my
respect, so long as they don't hurt
anybody. Chick, like Herbie Han-
cock, sometimes sells himself out.
Chick has covered lots of
territory in some twenty years,
and I love him for the beauty
which he has brought into the
world. And it's exciting wondering
what's next from this fellow, who
has worked with Anthony Braxton
and participated in the Return To
Forever band experience, tiptoes
on both ends of the spectrum.
I've always asked myself if he
will ever be able to continue the
ideas he was displaying when he
and Hubert Laws put together that
Guijira album in 1968, especially
the "Trio for Flute, Bassoon And
Piano." That piece is the closest he
ever came to honest chamber

music, in my opinion, up until he
recorded the Septet album for
ECM in October of 1984.
"Music for String Quartet,
Piano, Flute and French Horn" is,
in fact, a milestone in this man's
career. The piece "Septet," in five
movements, invokes Zoltan
Kodaly, if not Jacques Ibert or
Heitor Villa-Lobos. The Muse is
summoned, and the instrumen-
tation leads the vision deep into
wellsprings of the stuff of which
dreams are made.
The players are none of them
familiar to my recollection:
Chick himself, piano; Ida
Kavafian, violin; Theodore Arm,
violin; Steven Tenenbom, viola;
Fred Sherry, cello; Steve Kujala,
flute; Peter Gordon, french horn.
These folk must spend most of
their time with chamber music.
I've never heard any of them and
they seem very much at home with
the moods which Chick has written
upon for them.
The fifth movement was by
favorite, for its spunk.
Naturally, I'd expect the piece to
be caught as a whole, but with the
fifth coming in at the beginning of
Side Two, one finds it stands just
fine on its own. Chick says he im-
provised while he composed this
thing, and I must say it flows
beautifully.

By Hobey Echlin
S OFT WAR, an unusually diverse
group of musician/poets from
Detroit, make their Ann Arbor debut
at the Blind Pig Tuesday night.
To call them art-rock wouldn't be
doing them (or the listener) much
justice so you'll just have to bear
through a few thoughts.
Made up of fusion bassist Kneil
Ivory, progressive rock guitarist Er-
nie Douglas, Zappa-influenced
drummer John Dennis,
classical/punk-inspired guitarist
Greg Kutcher and avant-garde
poet/singer Tim Eldair, Soft War of-
fers a brand of "upbeat fatalism"
that packs the punch of an over-21
Midnight Oil.
Their eponymous eight song casset-
te on Rude records, features excellent
vocals from Eldair, diversely uplif-
ting guitar work from Kutcher (ap-
proaching the unlikely comparisons
of Robert Fripp and Peter Buck), as
strong, jumpy basslines from Kneil
Ivory keep the whole thing rolling and
soaring along. Tracks like "Babel"
and "Stay" show the kind of punch
Soft War packs, while giving you

printed lyrics on the cassette case so
you know where that punch is coming
from.

A

Where is it coming from? Mostly
the mind of Tim Eldair, who, judging
from his lyrics and pamphlet of
poems, is as confusing as he is in-
triguing. "Babel is a song about the
death of meaningful language, when
specialization becomes so extreme
that communication breaks down,"
he explains, not without some
deliberate ambiguity.
Be that as it may, the lyrics con
front you with enough confusion to
want to give it a second listen, that is
if you stop dancing long enough to
rewind the tape.
Thoughtful art-rock with an upbeat
approach to pessimism? A guitarist
who lists Black Flag and Stravinsky
as influences?
Self-styled "pop-subversives" who
can give us the infinitely poppy
"Stay" right along side the abstract
pessimism of "Babel"? A band who
could just as easily be compared to a
non-self-indulgent Roxy Music as
they could elude the "jazzy R.E.M.1
moniker? Can these guys be for real?
See for yourself, as Soft War debuts
the Pig tonight. Admission is free and
action begins around 10:30.

'Elektric' jazz artist Chick Corea finds a positive direction with his new
group of musicians on his latest LP, Septet.

The other composition on this
album is entitled "The Temple of
Isfahan."
(I'm hoping this isn't a mythical
invention of L.Ron Hubbard)
It's much more of a Corea Jazz
sound, and less of a chamber
music rush than "Septet." The
disc as a whole is a delight and I
encourage seasoned listeners and

newcomers alike to try this release
and see how far Mr. Corea can
take you.
I'm hoping he does more along
these lines. Mr. Chick, can you
hear me?
How's about a concerto, or Sym-
phonic Wash?
I'll listen.
