Fantastic Merlins: perfectly spellbinding
Courtesey of Fantastic Merlins

Jazzed

Fantastic Merlins

Quartet follows where the music leads ... and finds magic

“This is the essence of magic, which does not create, but summons.” So said Franz Kafka in his diary, and so it might be said of the Fantastic Merlins’ approach to music.

Music Interview

Marianne Dissard

Love and trust

Marianne Dissard was born in a small village in the South of France.

When Dissard was 16, her dad secured a job in Arizona and moved the entire family over. Her parents went back to France a few years later, but Dissard stayed behind. She went to USC for film school, then she returned to Tucson to film a documentary on the local band Giant Sand. The group featured future Calexico frontman Joey Burns.

Dissard says she planned to move back to France for good after her film was finished, but romance intervened. While visiting Paris, she met a French musician who adored Tucson, and the two returned to the desert.

Sonic Reducer

Fever Ray Fever Ray · Black Randy and the Metrosquad Pass the Dust, I Think I'm Bowie · Rahim Alhaj & Amjad Ali Khan Ancient Sounds

When two masters collaborate, competing egos and agendas can undermine the work, but not on Ancient Sounds, where oud master Alhaj and sarod master Khan commit themselves to serve the music and one another. Their play together is so responsive and complementary that distinguishing who is who is occasionally challenging; as in some Navajo weavings, foreground and background shift continually, serving only to deepen your engagement and wonder. Ancient though the musical architecture may be, Ancient Sounds delivers a clear, eloquent, and moving message of compassion and beauty the modern world will do well to heed. (MM)

Franks and Deans
Courtesy of the Artist

EVENT HORIZON (Thursday, Feb 23)

Franks & Deans • punk rock, rock 'n' roll • Shrewd • Punctured Muffler • Silent Crush • metal

At some point during the progression of meta-ultra-postmodernism, it was only natural that a band covering Rat Pack Tunes revisioned as rambling ska paeans or blisteringly buoyant punk anthems based on the imbibing and love-making habits of dudes like Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin would rise from the rocanrol cauldron. We'll it's 2017 and such has indeed come to pass. The name of the band is Franks and Deans. They've succeeded by inflecting the sweepingly romantic, sometimes melancholy and nearly always self-referential ditties of these post-war, pre-rock vocal heroes with with good-natured rhythms and danceable guitar leads—as well as an updated fashion sense that seems to borrow more from ZZ Top's summer style guide than from Robin and the Seven Hoods—that adds affable nuance to legendary, mid-century American popular music. Band members Rob DeTie, Pip Ullemeyer, Hoss and Arpee Sampson III await your indulgence at Low Spirits on Thursday, Feb. 23, and the admission price of $5 sure as heck beats dropping “Three Coins in the Fountain.”
