All That Moody
Eron LP007 (1976)
Album available as:-
T his album could probably be called "The Complete Davey Graham"
since it includes a few numbers, which earned him international fame
on earlier (now deleted) albums and which his fans have urged him
to reissue. However, Davey has revised those few earlier tracks so
they should prove of much interest to those who still own some of
the old albums, as will his later works, which many may not have heard
before. Davey plays guitar and finger cymbals; Keshav Sathe accompanies
on some tracks playing tabla and tamura; Roger Burn plays bass.
- Ron Milner (Original sleeve
Anji (Graham) - 1:26
Roger suggested we do this with bass. We hope you like it.
La Morena (Graham) - 4:42
From fragments, some learned from Felicity's American, Chris, who was
in Edinburgh in '62. The rest from Spain - at the time it reminded me
of Wyn, my mother, who was black-haired and dark skinned like Dusky, her
Travelling Man (Graham) - 1:57
My attempt to write a 'pop song'! (Never tried again)
Sunshine Raga (Graham) - 3:46
Inspired by a jugalbandi of Pandit Ravi Shankar and Ustad Ali Akbar Khan.
In the Bhilawal mode (I think)
A Smoother One (Goodman) - 2:12
One of our Qabhlah group said it reminded him of the words "Eli poked
us in the middle" ("Fred" was always doing that with jazz
Kim (Graham) - 2:24
My attempt at a piece in 7/4 with 4/4 middle. My justification is that
I had not then heard enough bouzouki. Also for my daughter who was named
after having seem the film with Dean Stockwell from Kipling's work. Had
she been a boy we'd not have changed her name.
Jenra (Graham) - 2:04
After my first visit to Morocco I wanted a piece in a triple rhythm, which
is so common there among Berber musicians.
No Preacher (Graham) - 2:37
A little irreverence (from a young man).
To Find The Sun (Graham) - 2:23
I was looking for a tune to one of Shakespear's sonnets (with little musical
experience) one cold winter on the Grove. Now we all have Carnival in
Tristano (Graham) - 3:38
After the late great Lennie Tristano. Probably today, Keith Jarrett is
what I would mean about a tremendous horizon at the piano. Fortunately
Roger Bunn is rather good on jazz guitar chords - "Roger, how do
your hands do that?"
Blues For Geno (Graham) - 3:05
(Was miss-titled Blues At Genos on the original Eron album) The later
Geno Foreman was as good on blues piano as he was at blues guitar. As
you can tell, I love "Snooks" Eaglin, too.
Fingerbuster (Graham) - 1:53
Learned from Geno, with some of me. Davis used to play it; it closely
resembles "Little Rock Getaway" and Ivor Mairants's "Spirit
of New Orleans" Ivor's book. "My Fretting Years" is a good
Blue Raga (Graham) - 4:38
The great Afghan musician Essa Kassimi, with Qadir Darwesh on tabla, have
a fine version of this, Bairami mode.
