dave van ronk frontThis two-on-one single-CD pairing of sessions from 1963 and 1981 isn’t the most logical chronological mating, but Van Ronk’s style was consistent enough throughout his career that it’s not jarring, though neither album is among his very best. The first half of the disc is devoted to the whole of the 1963 In the Tradition album, which was evenly split between tracks on which the singer is backed by the Dixieland jazz-style combo the Red Onions and by more customary acoustic folk-blues solo guitar. That 1963 session isn’t too much different from much of the rest of his catalog, other than in the balanced mixture between jazz and folk approaches. Of the trad jazz cuts, the item that might attract the most collector interest is the jaunty “All Over You,” which is certainly one of the most obscure (and atypical) early Bob Dylan covers; Dylan would never release his own version, though a demo he did of the tune in 1963 has appeared on bootlegs. It’s not much of a song, but its basic joie de vivre fits in well with the jazz segment of this program, on which Van Ronk’s gravelly vocals credibly echo (especially for a white singer) the spirit of early New Orleans jazz vocalists like Louis Armstrong. Among the acoustic numbers are “Green, Green Rocky Road” and “Rocks and Gravel,” both of which would be recorded by several other major talents of the ’60s folk scene. The CD also contains all but two songs (“In the Midnight Hour” and “Stagolee”) from a solo acoustic album he recorded in a single-night session in London in 1981, Your Basic Dave Van Ronk. If you’d been following Van Ronk up to that point, it wouldn’t have contained anything in its approach that you hadn’t heard before; indeed, some of the songs (“God Bless the Child,” “Cocaine,” “St. James Infirmary,” “Candy Man”) had been included on Van Ronk albums released many years prior to 1981. Still, Van Ronk’s powers as an excellent folk-blues interpreter were fully intact, and it did include two original Van Ronk compositions in “Sunday Street” and “Gaslight Rag,” the latter an homage to the famed Gaslight club in Greenwich Village.

seShe sounds like a folk singer, her diction clear as a mountain stream while she weaves whimsical tales of ships (Night Before Mutiny), conversations with Venus (The Moths Are Real), and rivals who meet at dawn “with pens and open scorn” (Lady Fortune). But there is an eccentricity to Serafina Steer that resists categorisation, and fills her songs with surprises. One moment she is pastoral, as on Skinny Dipping, a gauzy reverie on nakedness in which her fingers skitter over her harp like dragonflies; the next tart and opaque, as on Ballad of Brick Lane, which starts off bemoaning the hipster hub of London before turning to more abstract territory. Disco Compilation is brilliant, building from a harp backing to a pulsing beat and a celebration of music’s power to console. Jarvis Cocker – a fan of Steer’s 2010 album, Change Is Good, Change Is Good – produces with a relish for her oddities that is infectious.

jeJerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead and David Grisman were friends for over 30 years. On an occasional basis they would get together and jam, and Grisman would tape the results. Sometimes they would play rock, folk music, country, or free improvisation, but the music on this CD put out by Grisman’s Acoustic Disc label is strictly straight-ahead jazz. Joined by two (or sometimes three) sidemen from the mandolinist’s regular band (bassist Jim Kerwin, Joe Craven on percussion, and, on two numbers, flutist Matt Eakle), the co-leaders perform three versions of “So What,” two apiece of “Bag’s Groove” and “Milestones,” and one of Grisman’s “16/16.” Garcia is quite credible as a jazz improviser without attempting to be a virtuoso; he apparently loved the music and does not sound at all like a rock player. The versatile Grisman effectively updates his swing style, and the rhythm section is driving and supportive despite being quite light in volume. Even with the repetition of titles (only the last version of “So What” sounds like a rehearsal rather than a regular recording session), the music holds one’s interest throughout. A nice surprise that is well worth checking out.
