Musician and artist: Richard Adams demonstrating a technique at the Centre for Creative Studies workshop. Lots of excitement down Dixie Street ABOUT THE ARTS with Mike Nettmann It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing -- Duke Ellington BOI Jazz and Blues Festival, reviewed by William D Bonney Since it is impossible for one person to adequately cover all the musical happenings at this festi- val, which was spread over six venues and contained more than 45 acts, this report is of necessity limited to those bands which I saw. There were two bands billed as headline acts -- Dixie Street and KNiKi and Mike Beale, both from Australia. I caught the former but not the latter. Described in their publicity sheet as a decent bunch of larrikins Dixie Street turned out to be a fresh and lively group of musicians dispensing real excite- ment in the traditional jazz idiom. If I were to further pigeonhole them I would describe them as being in the Chicago style, with a hot melodic trumpeter a la Wild Bill Davison or Alex Welsh and a clarinet player with the fluency of Peanuts Hucko. The brass bass player achieved the difficult task of making that ponderous instrument swing. In fact the whole rhythm section swung like the clappers, with a blending, unobtrusive banjo. I was particularly impressed with pian- ist Bruce Gourlay from Tasmania, who kept calling to mind Dick Hyman. I can think of no higher praise. I only caught a short section of vocalist Carol Power with the Joe Carbery Swingtet but was very taken with her rendition of stan- dard songs in the jazz idiom. Thelonious Punk played in a more modern, funk-tinged style, with an impressive guitarist. When I caught them in the TMO Bar in Paihia they had a two tenor saxophone front line, Reese Helmondollar being joined by Luka Grbavac, a student at Taurua Area School. It s good to see the younger generation coming along. Miles Ahead, led by saxophonist Miles Tremlett, were as excellent as we have come to expect. A disappointing feature of the festival was the number of singers who chose to play with recorded backgrounds, with sometimes their guitar as the only live instrument. What next? Karaoke? Grant Haua is to be congratulated for performing solo with his guitar, with no recorded props. Richard Adams in Kerikeri Richard is not only one of our leading jazz violinists in Nairobi Trio, but also a leading contem- porary abstract artist. He gave a dynamic, informative workshop at the Centre For Cre- ative Studies on August 13 and 14 to a group of enthusiastic fellow artists, generously revealing his tricks , processes and techniques with acrylic paints and mixed media. Richard is most definitely not one of the precious artist brigade. He also gave an impromptu talk at NorthTec Kerikeri. Concurrent with the workshop was an exhi- bition at Kaan Zamaan of a selec- tion of his works on paper. His surfaces are reminiscent of cut and polished semi-precious stone radiating harmonious colour with compositions establishing equilib- rium between strata and markings that echo and comple- ment each other. The exhibition has been extended to August 26 and can be viewed by appointment -- call Julia 021-163-4478.
