Dyke About Town: Inti-Ilimani earns standing ovations

by Mercy Moosemuzzle - SGN Contributing Writer

Tuck and Patti
Zazen joined Mercy for Tuck and Patti at Jazz Alley April 17 because Cuteness was watching Equality play lacrosse. Mercy found Patti's voice in her multicolored gown glorious and Tuck's guitar playing outstanding. Zazen said, 'They are great. He is a wonderful guitarist. She is a fabulous singer. They are clearly comfortable together after their 33 years together.'

They opened upbeat with 'Yeah Yeah.' 'With a Song in My Heart,' the Rogers and Hammerstein song, slowed down nicely. 'His Eye is on the Sparrow' touched a gospel note. The Beatles' 'Blackbird' followed. 'Take This Feeing' was nice and jazzy. 'High Heel Blues' was written by Patti.

'Time After Time' was a sing-along. 'I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face' and 'Europa' were solos by Tuck which received standing ovations.

'Castles Made of Sand' returned to the upbeat and included some scat. 'Better Than Anything' stayed fast. 'Take My Breath Away' slowed down again. 'Little Wing' closed well. The set received a standing ovation.

Dar Williams
Reality joined Mercy for Dar Williams at the Triple Door on April 21. Alex Dezen of the Damnwells was the warm-up act. Mercy thought he had a nice folk voice and guitar work. Reality said Dezen's songs all sounded alike after a while. Mercy agreed.

Dar Williams and her band took the stage. Mercy thought she had a fantastic voice. Reality said he had forgotten how funny her stories were. Williams was introducing a new album of songs inspired by Greek mythology. Reality said he liked the new album and that Dar appeals to the old folkie in him.

The evening was full of mellow original ballads. There were a lot of requests called out. Reality said, 'She does have a crowd of fans here.'

Inti-Illimani
Cuteness joined Mercy for Inti-Illimani at the Triple Door on April 22. Mercy was impressed the waitress remembered she needed a lot of candles to help her write.

Cuteness has been a fan of the band since the '70s. The Chilean group lived in exile in Italy for many years after Pinochet came to power. The leader said their music is about the expression of human dignity.

Mercy thought the band was danceable. Cuteness found them infectious. She liked a story the emcee told about when they first came to America and people assumed they were Mexican and that all Latin-American people played panpipes. She pointed out the audience was enthusiastic.

Daniel Cantillana's violin was hot. Flute by Christian Gonzalez was delicious. Jorge Coulon Larranaga's guitar was melodious. The congas were driving.

Cuteness' favorite song was 'The Plow,' for the workers in the country. She liked its beautiful harmonies. There were three standing ovations.
