Harvey Mandel - The snake

Publicat la 10.01.2014

Nascut la 03.11.1945, Detroit Michigan USA dupa parerea Livingmusic unul dintre cei mai originali si importanti guitaristi de Rock & Roll , Blues, Blues – Rock ai tuturor timpurilor.
Primul album – Stand Back (1966) – alaturi de Charlie Musselwhite's South Side Band catalogat in Legends Of Rock Guitar 1997 ca fiind un album legendar.

Analizand din punct de vedere tehnic – muzical – un solo Harvey Mandel  cuprinde acel : fuzz-tone inconfundabil presarat cu reprize de feedback-edeged si pasaje cu frazari sincopate – hmmm sterila descriere, de aceea Livingmusic va recomanda sa ascultati cat mai multe albume Harvey Mandel pentru a va forma propria parere.

Pentru cunoscatori suntem siguri ca solourile lui Harvey Mandel pot fi apreciate ca fiind geniale, originale, cu un feeling rar intalnit.

Anul 1970 il gaseste pe Harvey Mandel in San Francisco – Bay Area – unde concerteaza la celebrul club "The Matrix" alaturi de Jerry Garcia si Elvin Bishop.

Intalnirea cu Abe Kesh – producator si disc jockey – se soldeaza prin semnarea unui contract la casa Philips, unde se inregistreaza primul album solo " Christo Redentor" – 1968.

Mai tarziu apar "Righteous" – 1969 si "Games Guitar Play"-1970, alaturi de Barry Goldberg si Graham Bond.

1970 ne aduce in atentie la casa Janus ( independenta ) "Baby Batter". August 1969, Harvey Mandel inlocuieste pe Henry Vestine si concerteaza alaturi de Canned Heat la Woodstock.

"Future Blues" si "Live in Europe" sunt cele doua albume de referinta in care Mandel evolueaza alaturi de Canned Heat..

John Mayall este urmatoarea etapa creativa al lui Mandel , aparand pe albumul celebru "USA Union" alaturi de Larry Taylor – Bass si Sugarcane Harris – Vioara, de asemenea si pe albumul celebru "Back to the Roots".

Pure Food and Drug Act este combinatia dintre Mandel si Sugarcane Harris, Randy Resnick- Guitara, Victor Conte – Bass, Paul Lagos – Baterie pe albumui "Choice Cuts".

1976 - Mandel la Rolling Stones – pe albumul "Black and Blue" si fantasticele piese "Hot Stuff" si "Memory Hotel".

De mentionat si albumele din 1970 "Baby Batter", "The Snake" si "Shangrenade" .

In 2006 Mandel infiinteaza grupul "Harvey Mandel and The Snake Crew" cu Elvin Bishop, Nick Gravenites, Pete Sears, Peter Albin, Barry Goldberg etc., aceasta formula fiind captata in concert si pe format DVD.

In 2009-2010 se reuneste alaturi de cei de Canned Head : Fito de la Para – baterie, Larry Taylor – bass, realizand diverse inregistrari notabile.
