Several artists with long musical resumes grace the soundscape of Deep Threes Radio #5. Master drummer Paul Wertico keeps busy by holding his new Mid-East / Mid-West Alliance together. Here’s part of an improv set that Paul posted from the “Live From Space” DVD.
Paul joined the Pat Metheny Group in 1983. His long and memorable tenure came to an end in 2001, but there was the occasional side job, like this 1986 wedding. June brides take note.
LCD Soundsystem released It’s Happening Now this week – somebody called me and asked to play a long track on the show. Leader James Murphy took a big step towards founding DFA Records when he produced the Law of Ruins album for Six Finger Satellite. Here’s pictures from a tour of some of the Vatican’s deepest recesses set to “Fur Immer Liebe”.
We’ll also hear something from the new live album by the Stan Kenton Alumni Band. Who could they have possibly played with before that gig? Here’s Kenton leading His Orchestra performing “Malaguena” in 1962 on Jazz Scene U.S.A. hosted by Oscar Brown Jr.
“Peanut Vendor” is a Kenton classic. Bull uses it as the soundtrack to show off his many faces (and helmets).
