This reminds me that my band Mamalama is playing a show tonight - we're not a gypsy band, but the orchestration is similar!
Avatar Fri. 5/29/15 9:58am Doug Schulkind:

For your further edification:

At the age of four Toni Iordache got to know the smaller portable version of the tzambal (cimbalom). Iordache's friend, the trumpeter Costel Vasilescu, remembers their first meeting well: "I met Toni in 1954 in a village on the outskirts of Bucharest. Toni was playing there and everyone was just standing around him and getting scared, because his playing was so insanely good."
Iordache was so gifted a musician he soon was sent on tour through many European countries, the USA and Asia as a representative of Socialist Romania. Returning home he often drove from Bucharest Airport straight to a wedding where his band were waiting for him. At the beginning of the 1970s he was arrested for the illegal possession of foreign currency. Apparently he wanted to buy his wife a fur coat with the money he had earned abroad. Even the prestigious orchestra leader Florian Economu couldn't help his soloist at the trial when he spoke up for him: "We have three giants in Romania, Nicolae Ceausescu (head of state), Ilie Nastase (Romanian tennis champion) and the tzambal player Toni Iordache! Do you really want to convict him for a few dollars?".
Toni Iordache was famous for his complex solos, a gifted ensemble player, who enriched many melodies with oriental elements and sophisticated rhythms. For him the technique of playing the tzambal was not solely one of speed; his sensitive touch, immense skill and imaginative verve marked him as a master amongst Lautari.
Seriously ill with diabetes, Toni Iordache died in February 1988. Dan Armeanca, the godfather of Romanian Gypsy pop, states: "Toni was a genius on the tzambal, ones like that are not born twice. He respected tradition, but even back then he allowed jazz influences to sound through. He gave us young musicians courage due to his musical audacity."

Doug, went to see Chip Taylor & John Platania on guitar this week. He told a story about catching a train at Grand Central. Seeing a couple arguing then moving on, he was earwigging the conversation, got on his train and wrote a song about it. There is a song in anything for a good writer.

Avatar Fri. 5/29/15 11:36am Doug Schulkind:

That Joe Maneri was never released. It is from the collection of Abe Maneri

Speaking of Harry Smith, about 10 years ago maybe, a fan of my radio show began corresponding with me. He caught my attention by mentioning that his old friend Harry Smith would've loved my show. (A comment that still humbles me.) It turned out that the listener was a poet and fellow traveler of Harry Smith's. We began communicating prolifically via email and I was drawn into a universe of Harry Smith history and arcana. Very thrilling stuff for me. This listener sent me tapes of another friend and Smith chum whose grandfather Harry had recorded more than 100 hours worth chanting ancient Hebrew liturgy. Amazing stuff.

Well as our email backs and forths got heavier and deeper, I started to get a weird proselytizing feeling from the messages I was receiving.

It turned out that this listener was a molecular biologist who was one of the leading AIDS denialists. He was named to the panel formed by then South African president Thabo Mbeki to support his horrendous AIDS policy. The listener sent me one of his books and was clearly recruiting me to use my radio show as a platform for his theories. At least that what I sensed what was happening.

When I confronted him on this, the correspondence stopped cold.

@Doug what a story!

I just hold onto the "Harry Smith would've loved your show" comment and imagine that it might be genuine.

Well I am a time denialist. Three hours. NEVER. Have a great weekend y'all.

@Doug even if it wasn't I'm sure Harry would have loved your show anyway

Amazing amazing story, Doug.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/29/15 11:41am Lewis:

@Doug - I think that part was genuine!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/29/15 11:42am Brian in UK:

How could that bit not be true.

A song covered by Elvis Costello ...I Wanna Be Loved...yes sir.. you can look it up!

@Mr C and his backing band was The.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/29/15 11:45am Uncle Michael:

Mr. C, I don't doubt Costello covered it...but he also has a song of his own called I Wanna be Loved that's not the same song.

June 18, 1984: Elvis Costello's re-working of obscure Hi Records single by the Teacher's Edition, "I Wanna Be Loved", reaches #25 in the U.K charts proves to be last Top 30 single until 1992.
  Fri. 5/29/15 11:45am Mr C:

it wasn't the Hi Rhythm section. But the intent was pure. And I can tell first hand, Farnell Jenkins, who wrote I Wanna Be Loved, was highly appreciative
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/29/15 11:46am Uncle Michael:

Hmm...Costello's song has different words...I'm purdie sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/29/15 11:47am Uncle Michael:

I'm probably all wrong.

The Denise here is Denise LaSalle. The Abe is Abe Tilmon.

Abe from the mighty Detroit Emeralds

Yes of course!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/29/15 11:48am Uncle Michael:

Yay...I'm wrong! Learning something is better than being right.

Anyone thought if you connect Reg Presley of the Troggs and Elvis Costello you have a famous star. Reg Costello. Time to go.
Avatar Fri. 5/29/15 11:49am Doug Schulkind:

I love that the flip side of "Down on My Knees" is "Stand Up for Your Rights"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/29/15 11:52am Hugo:

@Doug: Thanks for the info. More unreleased Joe Maneri is highly welcome (and released, too). Those Harry Smith recordings of Hebrew liturgy has been played on your show, at least parts of it? Forgot the actual name now.
Avatar Fri. 5/29/15 11:52am Doug Schulkind:

You are invited and encouraged to keep the par-tay vibing over at Uncle Michael's pad. He's got some cupcakes and punch and stuff. I think there will be Pictionary. Just remember to take your shoes off:

Good call on "Never Walk Out on You", one of the many jams that Matthew Africa (RIP) and DJ B.Cause turned my onto via their essential "Soul Boulders" mix.

excellent show Doug!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/29/15 11:57am Uncle Michael:

Thanks Doug...see you all next door!
  Fri. 5/29/15 11:58am trs:

See you in June. A bright light month.
  Fri. 5/29/15 11:58am Dean:

Why are the names Abulafia and Ziprin familiar to me? (Google the latter and you'll find a YouTube clip of the poet reading, but it files after other results relating to "a natural male enhancement formula.") But wow, what a show today, melding the usual kaleidoscope of the playlist with comments ranging from Harry Smith to Hebrew chanting. Awesome.
