Sunnyland

Slim

By Alan Paul
81 is pretty old to be playing the
blues with verve and energy. Hell, to
my 21-year-old bones, it seems
pretty old to be alive, for God's
sake..
But Sunnyland Slim, 81, and still
going strong, will be at Ypsilanti's
Depot Town tomorrow night for
three high energy sets of rockin' pi-
ano blues. You may be skeptical. I
may have been too except that I saw
Sunnyland Slim and his young, very
tight, and very talented blues band at
last June's Chicago Blues Festival.
After receiving a medal from the
city of Chicago for meritous service,

which he proudly wore around his
neck, Sunnyland and his boys took
the stage and were simply the best
band on a day of very good blues.
Sure, his fingers have slowed down,
but his band, led by guitarist Steve
Freund, cooks.
Cooking is nothing new to Sun-
nyland Slim. He has been playing
professionally since 1922 and the
following year he left his home in
Mississippi and settled in Memphis.
He went on to play with blues per-
formers from Ma Rainey to
"Memphis Minnie" Douglas, and
"Sonny Boy Williamson, No. 1"
During the early '40s, Sunnyland
settled in Chicago where he played

Margitza are native Detroiters, who
won the Hennessey Cognac National
Jazz Search shortly after forming last
year.
Ann Arbor jazz/new age pianist
David Flippo opens the show. He is
popular with Gandy Dancer diners so
he should be just fine with you as
you munch down some inexpensive
grub for dinner. This is the second of
three concerts in this winter's Depot
Town series and probably the high-

Sunnyland Slim, 81, can still coo
evident at last year's Chicago Bl
night at Ypsilanti's Depot Town
with the original Muddy Waters
blues band.
So, the man's itinerary reads like
this: 1922 - Ma Rainey, 1942 -
Muddy Waters, 1988 - Depot
Town. And Slim promises a great
show. "Don't worry, we'll be ready,"
he says. "We're going to let it all
hang out."

By Lisa Pollak
Rockabye baby, on the treetop,
She's Having a Baby is really a flop.
The husband is played by the young Kevin Bacon.
(Lines uttered so poorly he sounds like he's faking).
And Elizabeth McGovern in a wife's role so trite -
She can't cook; she complains; she' resists sex at night.
Until, (who'd have guessed it?), she wants her own child;
The very idea makes her husband go wild.
In fantasy scenes far more stupid than clever,
His yuppie existence he wishes to sever.
You'd hate it as well, for his life's a clich6:
(It's what we'd expect from John Hughes, anyway).
The in-laws, the suburbs, the just-married blues,
The train rides to work - and it all makes me snooze.
Two brat-packish stars, who both hardly can act,
Try - and fail - to bring life to this corny love pact.
"If I tell you something, will you please not get mad?"
If you buy this line then you've surely been had.
For McGovern's announcement of motherhood pending
Unfortunately isn't this movie's real ending.
Instead - and embellished by pop tunes so sad -
We must last though the birth of their darling young lad.
Yet when the bough breaks, the cradle will fall.
This movie does too. And that, John, is all.
