Alexis Korner: The RIAS Session - Live in Berlin June 19, 1981 - Alexis Korner, Tony Sheridan, and Steve Baker (CD)

1-CD digipac - 24-page booklet - 12 tracks - 61min.

Though nobody knew it at the time, this was literally a once in a lifetime encounter: the father of British blues Alexis Korner, whose groundbreaking group Blues Incorporated laid the foundations for the emergence of bands such as the Rolling Stones and many others, and Tony Sheridan, the man who played a major role in the early development of the Beatles during their formative period in Hamburg, including their recording debut.

Alexis and Tony had never met previously and as far as I know they never met again thereafter. On the night of June 19, 1981, they got together at the instigation of Sigi Schmidt-Joos for just a few short hours at the RIAS studio in what was then West Berlin. In 1981 I was playing a lot with Tony, so when he asked me to come with him to Berlin to perform on a live radio show with Alexis Korner, I naturally jumped at the chance.

The show was broadcast live and ran from 11pm to 4am under the title "Lange Nacht des Blues" (Long Night of the Blues). As you can hear, things got pretty loose and we all had a wonderful time. Despite the lack of rehearsal, Alexis and Tony connected really well and some great jams ensued.

For this CD, the original tapes have been remastered and the whole thing edited down to something over an hour, giving blues lovers everywhere the best of this historic session in good audio quality for the first time. Tony and Alexis were both brilliant, erratic and unconventional interpreters of the blues tradition. Each played a pivotal role, both in the emergence of British rock music, and in bringing the deep blues to a wider audience (both men at various times also hosted popular blues radio shows). This recording documents the only time that these two seminal figures ever met and I'm happy and hon- oured to have been part of that meeting!

"Alexis Korner"

Alexis Korner

In the early Fifties Korner (born in 1928) flirted with traditional jazz and skiffle before opening the London Blues and Barrelhouse Club with Cyril Davies in 1955. The pair first played together at the club's Thursday evening sessions, which attracted visiting American blues-men as well as local enthusiasts. Inspired by Muddy Waters, Chris Barber introduced R&B into his jazz band's repertoire, and Korner (guitar) and Davies (harmonica) backed singer Ottilie Patterson.

The popularity of the sets encouraged them to form their own- R&B band, Blues Incorporated, in 1961 and, in March the following year, to open their own club in Ealing. The band's original personnel included Art Wood (vocals) and Charlie Watts (drums), and among those who passed through the constantly changing line-up during the next year were Long John Baldry, Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, Graham Bond, Ronnie Jones, and Phil Seamen. Despite his seminal influence on British R&B, the boom passed Korner by and he spent much of the mid-Sixties working in television with his current rhythm section, Danny Thompson (bass) and Terry Cox (drums).

In 1967, he formed a trio, Free At Last, with an initial line-up of Cliff Barton (bass) and Hughie Flint (drums), but which changed so much he decided to work on his own. While touring Scan-dinavia the following year he met Peter Thorup; their sub-sequent collaboration provided the nucleus of New Church in 1969, the studio band CCS, and Snape, formed by chance on an American tour in 1972 with ex-members of King Crimson. Though Snape broke up within a year, Korner and Thorup continued to work together both as a duo and in CCS, whose hits included a cover of Led Zeppelin's 'Whole Lotta Love' in 1970.

Sehr interessante Session

Es ist erstaunlich, wenn man liest, wie diese Aufnahmen zustande gekommen sind. Ohne Absprache, ohne Übung etc. einfach anfangen!
Aber, die drei sind ja versierte Musiker - darum hat's auch geklappt.

Spitzenprodukt, sehr empfehlenswert.
