What a great article! Today as we have our Thanksgiving meal and listen to Alice's (again and again, no doubt!), we'll know we are joined in spirit for some cornbread dressing and pumpkin pie by Kathy and Louise/Deb and Beverley (you don't get out of it just 'cause you're a Brit!) and lots of others. And this weekend we'll all "be" at Carnegie. If it seems warmer while some of you are hanging out before and after the show, that's all the rest of us crowding around on that block of 57th, trying to get a sniff of Sherry's cookies.

Thanks for sharing your article, Kathy, and for the reminder that we're all together even if we're not.

I miss cornbread stuffing! Eat a bunch for me Shel. ;)
And, everyone at the Carnegie show has to sing really, really loud so that those of us far away can hear it.

Folk, With an Unusual Bunch of Instruments
Michael Falco for The New York Times
Arlo Guthrie, on guitar, performing with the University of Kentucky Symphony Orchestra.


By ALLAN KOZINN
Published: November 26, 2007
In the tradition of the American folk singer that he has upheld for the last 40 years, Arlo Guthrie usually performs on his own or with a few sidemen. But for his annual holiday concert at Carnegie Hall on Saturday evening Mr. Guthrie went symphonic, turning up with the University of Kentucky Symphony Orchestra, led by John Nardolillo. Mr. Nardolillo and his ensemble also accompany Mr. Guthrie on his latest album, “In Times Like These” (Rising Son Records), recorded this year.

The album, which Mr. Guthrie and the orchestra performed almost in its entirety, mostly revisits favorites from Mr. Guthrie’s past work, including his version of Steve Goodman’s “City of New Orleans” and his own “Darkest Hour,” “Last Train” and “Last to Leave.” Curiously, the album’s title song, composed as a response to the Hurricane Katrina disaster (both natural and man-made), is performed by Mr. Guthrie to just his own guitar, on disc and in concert.

If the arrangements by James Burton don’t do anything so grand as put the songs in a new or deeper perspective, they have the virtue of keeping out of Mr. Guthrie’s way. That isn’t to say they’re unattractive.

For “St. James Infirmary,” a blues standard, Mr. Burton added trumpet and clarinet lines that evoke — albeit at a distance — the jazzy spirit of the Louis Armstrong recording. He also supplied a lovely string score, with a singing oboe line, for Mr. Guthrie’s ruminative “Epilogue” and a lush backing for Mr. Guthrie’s account of “You Are the Song,” a sentimental piece with music by Charlie Chaplin and lyrics by Glen Anthony.

Mr. Guthrie has never been anyone’s idea of a virtuoso singer, and the Chaplin song — as well as a cover of the old Elvis Presley hit “Can’t Help Falling in Love” — pushed the edge of his range a bit. But Mr. Guthrie never let considerations of that kind stand in his way, and given the expressivity of his assertively untutored, idiosyncratic style, there’s no reason he should. His voice has retained much of the freshness it had in the 1970s. And he can still spin an amusing yarn between songs.

Mr. Nardolillo and his student orchestra had the show’s first half-hour to themselves, with an exuberant reading of Bernstein’s “Candide” Overture and a focused account of Copland’s “Appalachian Spring” Suite.

Finally got my Vanity Fair (the first and probably only time I'll buy it)
The photos are great. I enjoyed also seeing the photos of the Kennedy's pushing happy the families image (but don't we all???). You gotta admit they were charismatic.

So strange to see those airbrushed stilleto diamond wearing VS girls then turn the page to see Joan up a tree in her jeans and bare feet. I know who I would rather hang out with!!!!!!!

The Wall Street Journal Dec. 31, 2007 issue has on page B1 an article titled "Fast Away The Old Year Passes.
It lists some 14 questions about events of the past year.
Question 1. is: "Nolan Ryan, Arlo Guthrie,Farrah Fawcett, Mitt Romney: This year these four were on a list of famous people who:
a.sued the National Enquirer
b.celebrated their 60th birthdays
c.were treated for cancer
d.ran for office
e.are Mormans

Needless to say everyone on this forum knows the answer to that one.
Around the article an artist drew a charicature of some of some of the folks mentioned including ADG. :lol:
