Two members of the band join me on the show today with recorded music from San Patricio plus chat in promotion of their special Thursday 5th. May concert at Dublins' Grand Social.

REVIEW EXCERPT AMERICAN SHOW
About five songs into his show Thursday night at the Arvest Bank Theatre at the Midland, Andrew Bird paused to pay his respects to Prince. (Coincidentally, Bird’s previous show was Tuesday night at First Avenue in Minneapolis, the club featured in the movie “Purple Rain.”)

“I’ve got to say something,” he said. Then: “It makes me want to play better.”

He then performed “Puma,” a bright, poppy track from his new album, “Are You Serious.”

Bird can be a bit eccentric and cryptic, but like Prince, he is a virtuoso on several instruments, especially the violin, which he plucks, strums and bows, sometimes all in the same song. And when it comes to whistling, he lives up to his surname, sounding effortlessly and at will like a piccolo. He played guitar, too, and glockenspiel and created loops of it all, adding filigrees, textures and other dimensions to his songs, which have roots in folk, rock, world music and jazz.

About the show:
Jazz Mine is a play on jasmine which, as you can read below, is one possible originator in respect of JAZZ as a description of the music being featured on this weekly show.

Jazz keeps developing so the intention is to keep the focus on newer stuff with many forays into the Jazz Mines to illustrate past jazz musical triumphs.

I hope that you can join me on this ongoing voyage & that you email, Facebook & Twitter communications will bring me down new shafts as we explore the MINE that comprises JAZZ in all it's shapes & sizes.

On the subject of the word JAZZ Garvin Bushell, was sure it had a fragrant origin. In his 1988 book Jazz From the Beginning, he remembers his early days in music, around 1916: “The perfume industry was very big in New Orleans in those days, since the French had brought it over with them. They used jasmine — oil of jasmine — in all different odours to pep it up. It gave more force to the scent. So they would say, ‘let’s jass it up a bit,’ when something was a little dead.” John Philip Sousa suggested in the 1920s that jazz slid into our vocabulary by way of the vaudeville stage, in which all the acts would come back on to the stage at the end of a performance to give a rousing, boisterous finale called ajazzbo, a type of low physical comedy.
