I just came from 1st Line & 2nd Line parade right down San Pablo Avenue in El Cerrito CA

September 19, 2014

I just came from 1st Line & 2nd Line parade right down San Pablo Avenue in El Cerrito CA – honoring Chris Strachwitz of Arhoolie Records
for his documentary film released this evening indi production called “This Ain’t No Mouse Music” -
tonight’s the night!
Jon Hammond

By Jim Harrington <a href="honoring Chris Strachwitz of Arhoolie Records
for his documentary film released this evening indi production called "This Ain't No Mouse Music" -
tonight's the night!
Jon Hammond
By Jim Harrington http://www.mercurynews.com/entertainment/ci_26552568/review-this-aint-no-mouse-music-fascinating-story
Chris Strachwitz has spent the past 54 years unearthing musical treasures, journeying into the shadows of America to record all sorts of artists who might otherwise never be documented.
His travels have fueled Arhoolie Records, the El Cerrito-based roots-music label that has issued 400-plus albums and more than 6,500 songs since its founding in 1960. Now, Strachwitz's long, strange trip is nicely chronicled in "This Ain't No Mouse Music!"
The documentary illustrates the dramatic impact Strachwitz's efforts have had on the music world — and on "world music." Notably, it shows how the Arhoolie recordings greatly helped popularize Cajun, Tex-Mex, bluegrass and other regional music styles while bringing some much-needed attention to such significant musicians as Tejano accordionist Flaco Jimenez, zydeco titan Clifton Chenier, bluegrass great Del McCoury and Texas bluesman Mance Lipscomb.
Given that impressive list, it shouldn't be a surprise that the soundtrack is one of the best things about "This Ain't No Mouse Music!" It's a remarkably diverse collection of styles and artists that — like the Arhoolie catalog itself — is simply sewn together with the common thread of Strachwitz's personal taste in music.
"I didn't want to record stuff that I didn't like," he explains in the movie, providing a de facto mission statement for his label.
Yet, Strachwitz seems at a loss when he tries to describe exactly what it is that attracts him to a song or artist.
"I don't know why I like it so much," he says about some unnamed piece of music in the film. "It's just got some guts to it. It ain't wimpy, that's for sure. It ain't no mouse music."
Advertisement

The film never really defines "mouse music," but we're given the impression that it's music of the overly produced, highly commercial variety. And, yes, it's a safe bet that you won't hear "mouse music" on an Arhoolie record.
The film begins — much like Strachwitz's career in music — with the blues. Strachwitz is shown walking through the Arhoolie offices, housed in the back of his low-key record shop Down Home Music on San Pablo Avenue in El Cerrito, with an album in hand. He takes it over to the turntable and drops the needle — unleashing Lightnin' Hopkins' "Big Mama Jump" — and then smiles like a kid in a candy store.
He's not just mugging for the camera. That's Strachwitz in a nutshell — a man who still dearly loves listening to music after more than a half-century in the business. And that's a mighty rare situation in the music industry.
"This Ain't No Mouse Music" works, in large part, because of Strachwitz's unbridled — and some would say unrivaled — enthusiasm for Americana music. He comes across on film exactly like he does in person: passionate, opinionated, motivated and incredibly down to earth. I interviewed Strachwitz in 2011, on the occasion of Arhoolie's 50th anniversary celebration, and the quotes from that chat read like slices of dialogue from this documentary.
He's a natural storyteller, blessed with many great yarns as well as a magnetic presence in front of the camera. Directors-producers Chris Simon and Maureen Gosling wisely keep the focus on him, fleshing out the briskly paced film with short interviews from other members of Arhoolie's extended family and representative music clips.
The film devotes the bare minimum to Strachwitz' boyhood in Germany and the family's flight in the 1940s to America, where he fell in love with the cornucopia of sounds coming out of his radio — hillbilly country, Mexican music, gospel, blues, etc. The film really takes flight after he moves to the Bay Area to attend UC Berkeley and embarks on series of musical treasure hunts to record artists deserving of wider exposure. The first Arhoolie release was the blues record "Mance Lipscomb: Texas Sharecropper and Songster" in 1960.
Watching people work in a recording studio can be as interesting as watching paint dry. Fortunately, Strachwitz favors "field recordings" — where an artist is taped in his or her local environs, no matter how rustic — which makes for some fascinating footage.
"My stuff isn't produced. I just catch it as it is," he says in the film. "I never had a studio — I never wanted a studio. Because I knew that the music I liked was all over the place."

I like how Jimmy wore his Tie-dye Peace Symbol shirt in to AFN Radio when we did the live broadcast on the powerful military station world-wide in March of 1994 – you will be / are greatly missed James Preston!

Drummer, Bandleader, NEA Jazz Master Award Recipient CHICO HAMILTON on HammondCast KYOU Radio, excerpted from interview by Jon Hammond, organist and host of HammondCast

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chico_Hamilton

Chico Hamilton (born Foreststorn Hamilton, September 20, 1921), is an American jazz drummer and bandleader.

Hamilton was born in Los Angeles, California. He had a fast-track musical education in a band with Charles Mingus, Illinois Jacquet, Ernie Royal, Dexter Gordon, Buddy Collette and Jack Kelso. Engagements with Lionel Hampton, Slim & Slam, T-Bone Walker, Lester Young, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Charlie Barnet, Billy Eckstine, Nat King Cole, Sammy Davis Jr., Billie Holiday, Gerry Mulligan and six years with Lena Horne established him as a jazz drummer,[1] and he struck out on his own as a bandleader in 1955.
Hamilton appeared in the March Milastaire number in the film You’ll Never Get Rich (1941) as part of the backing group supporting Fred Astaire, and performed on the soundtrack of the Bing Crosby/Bob Hope film Road to Bali.
He recorded his first album as leader in 1955 with George Duvivier (double-bass) and Howard Roberts (jazz guitar) for Pacific Jazz. In same year Hamilton formed an unusual quintet in L.A. featuring cello, flute, guitar, bass and drums.[2] The quintet has been described as one of the last important West Coast Jazz bands.[1] The original personnel included flutist Buddy Collette, guitarist Jim Hall, cellist Fred Katz and bassist Jim Aton, who was later replaced by Carson Smith. Hamilton continued to tour using different personnel, from 1957 to 1960. The group including flutist Paul Horn and John Pisano was featured in the film Sweet Smell of Success in 1957. The same group, this time including Nate Gershman and Eric Dolphy appeared in the film Jazz on a Summer’s Day in 1960. He marked his first recordings with Eric Dolphy on With Strings Attached, Gongs East, The Three Faces of Chico, and That Hamilton Man.
