              LAMENTATION

              We – Dave Eggar and I – picked this poem, because it had a mournful, funereal quality to it and it felt in a way, like a kind of kaddish (prayer for the dead)…As we learned of thousands and eventually hundreds of thousands of people all over the world lost to the pandemic, the emotional weight became so inconceivable that many simply became numb, watching the news. But eventually, nearly everyone was touched directly and had lost a loved-one, including myself. So in arranging this piece we tried to honor the memories of loved-ones who passed over the last year and a half, instilling into the track the compound loss of so many who were unable to go comfort those who were sick or to have traditional memorials, whether at synagogues or other places of worship.

              DAYS OF AWE

              This particular piece is kind of my version of Patti Smith-meets-Joan Jett. The title of the poem is taken from the English translation of how the Jewish High Holiday period is described, and is a metaphor that relates atonement to behaving rashly and selfishly within a romantic relationship. In Judaism – and most religions – of course there is a time, a season, for virtually every ritual and myriad laws for how to treat loved-ones with kindness and compassion. The poem describes someone being accountable and remorseful for their misguided actions, while highlighting their own lack of faith in ‘karma’. The duality of pain revealing truth and misdeeds garnering perspective are prominent Jewish themes, especially during Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah when we seek a clean slate after repenting. Cynical lines like “I’ve seen too many mensches suffer / while the shlemiels won the prize” give way to self-awareness, and the kind of mindfulness for which one strives during “Days Of Awe”. 
              In many ways this poem seemed to reflect the unprecedented times we are in, where at every turn we are faced with opportunities to either uplift or alienate one another…to connect or divide. The electric guitar on this track feels raw and even a bit aggressive, but the strings add more of a thoughtful polish to the devolving chaos, which seemed to work well with the duality contained in the language.

              ENGAGEMENT

              I was very fortunate to be able to recruit renowned klezmer clarinetist David Krakauer to perform on this track! He is so soulful and absolutely steeped in Old World Jewish music that from the first note he plays, it’s impossible not to feel a certain sacred, Eastern European soulful quality in his performance. It felt like a very appropriate choice of instrumentation because the piece chronicles a broken bond, and the tragic, intractable lover whose ‘engagement’ has been severed, and whose unbridled passion continues to burn, however unrequited.

              PULPIT

              This poem was written several years ago but it felt especially relevant this past year, which of course, is the incredible thing about poetry and how it can be reinterpreted. The piece describes the challenges of channeling one’s awareness of world events and human suffering into something as seemingly trivial as a ‘gig’, let alone a gig on Shabbat. The show becomes a kind of temple, the stage a pulpit, and the audience a congregation. Music becomes the source of light and hope for those who’ve made the effort to gather together and to receive comfort through catharsis, and for the subject of the poem, there is no choice but to be grateful for community, and for the opportunity to instill hope through artistry.

              A FATHER’S NACHUS

              A Father’s Nachus is a tribute to that timeless Jewish term describing the pride one loved-one feels in the accomplishments or qualities of another. Typically, parents feel ‘nachus’ for their children and in this piece a child flips that paradigm, describing the pride and “rachmanus” (joyful compassion) they feel for their beloved father, who though frequently away, nonetheless manages to be an exceptionally loving and emotionally present parent and mentor. By the end of the piece it is clear that both father and child share equal amounts of ‘nachus’ for each other, and that the elder generation has blessed the younger with with deep seated values, with learning, and most importantly, with unconditional love and acceptance.

              With its proud horn lines and retro string hooks, the debut track “Thanksgiving” from the self-titled album POETICA is a psychedelic spoken-word ode to individuality in all its complex glory. Directed and animated by NLX, the video evokes the beatnik era with clever typewriter-inspired imagery, a decidedly committed (red/black/white) color-scheme, and a visual flow that perfectly reflects the stream-of-consciousness vocals. Percolating percussion and sparse bass lines support playful wah guitar riffs in this sensual, empowered music-poetry feast for the eyes, ears and mind.

              “Thanksgiving” and Poetica album playlist

The video premiered in Guitar Girl (US) and Noctis Magazine (UK).

It aims to create a connection and shared experience via the unifying power of words. Adventurous yet familiar in its intimacy, Sage’s voice is perfectly at home in the absence of typical song structure.

              The full album out 10/22 is now available for airplay and follow “Thanksgiving” on this playlist.

                Poetica Releases New Video for “Thanksgiving”

                the First Track Ahead of Forthcoming Album Self-Titled Poetica Album Out October 22nd

                “mesmerizing…thoughtful, pensive and flush with an emotional flourish, all carefully and adeptly executed…simply superb” – Goldmine

                “I absolutely love the Poetica pieces!!! Very moving. Such magical musical backdrops throughout…it is mesmerising!” – Howard Jones

                MPress Records has just released “Thanksgiving”, the first track/video by Poetica, a spoken-word concept album conceived, produced and engineered by 6-time Independent Music Award winner Rachael Sage. The video premiered in Guitar Girl (US) and Noctis
                Magazine
                (UK). Poetica is an adventurous fusion of poetry with jazz, classical and Americana musical elements in the vein of Leonard Cohen and Laurie Anderson. It aims to create a connection and shared experience via the unifying power of words. Adventurous yet familiar in its intimacy, Sage’s voice is perfectly at home in the absence of typical song structure.

                With its proud horn lines and retro string hooks, the debut track “Thanksgiving” is a psychedelic spoken-word ode to individuality in all its complex glory. Directed and animated by NLX, the video evokes the beatnik era with clever typewriter-inspired imagery, a decidedly committed (red/black/white) color-scheme, and a visual flow that perfectly reflects the stream-of-consciousness vocals. Percolating percussion and sparse bass lines support playful wah guitar riffs in this sensual, empowered music-poetry feast for the eyes, ears and mind.

                Beginning as a duo collaboration under lockdown between Sage and her longtime cellist Dave Eggar (Esperanza Spalding, Duncan Sheik, Corinne Bailey Rae), Poetica soon evolved into a full-blown, cinematic spoken word album, with Sage producing and engineering the project in isolation with limited gear she happened to have with her while on tour while sending files back and forth to bandmates and guest musicians from every genre. From over 200 poems written both during and prior to lockdown, Eggar – whose parents are both poetry professors – volunteered to help Sage select the 18 spoken-word pieces that eventually comprised the album.

                “Writing song lyrics is very different for me than writing poems,” says Rachael Sage. “Poems come from a much more subconscious, mysterious place that I would almost describe as a kind of soul-searching. It’s a very spiritual process for me and I usually learn something after the fact, once each poem is written. I’ve been really enjoying the absence of any kind of song structure while creating these arrangements, and I also greatly credit Dave Eggar for supporting this vision, and my writing, unequivocally.”

                In addition to three-time Grammy® nominee Dave Eggar, contributors to Poetica include renowned klezmer clarinetist David Krakauer, Spooky Ghost guitarist (and longtime David Bowie bandmate) Gerry Leonard, jazz trumpet player Russ Johnson, drummer Quinn(Janelle Monáe) and UK-based blues harmonica player Will Wilde. Frequent musical partners Kelly Halloran (Michael Franti), Doug Yowell (Suzanne Vega), Jack Petruzzelli (Rufus Wainwright), and James Mastro (Patti Smith) contributed violin, drums, and electric guitar, respectively.

                  There Used to be Horses Here

                  Beautifully uplifting and deeply personal, Amy Speace has made the most revealing album of her career with There Used to Be Horses Here. Recorded in Nashville in just four days, the award-winning songwriter pulls directly from her own childhood memories, coming of age in New York City, and losing a parent while learning to become one.

                  38 MacDougal Press Release

                  fred neil – 38 macdougal

                  Mastertone Studios, NYC, 1965…Amidst mounting friction with producer Paul Rothchild, Fred Neil walks out on the unfinished sessions for what was to be his debut album, “Bleecker & MacDougal”. Fearing he wouldn’t return to the studio, his friend and guitar player, Peter Childs, invited him down to the Greenwich Village apartment he shared with John Sebastian, at 38 MacDougal. According to Childs, “the best chance to get Freddie back wouldn’t be to try to persuade him verbally, but to get him over to the apartment for a bit of music-making”. What transpired on that afternoon was a legendary singer-songwriter and his long-time accompanist making music for the pure joy of it, a one-of-a-kind private performance, captured on Ampex reel to reel, and stored for over fifty years!

                  The story behind these previously unreleased recordings was beautifully told in Peter Lee Neff’s 2019 Fred Neil biography, “That’s The Bag I’m In”. Fred and Peter Childs perform songs that would later wind up on “Bleecker & MacDougal” (“Travellin’ Shoes”, “Country Boy”, “Gone Again”, “Candy Man”, “Little Bit Of Rain”), a definitive “Sweet Cocaine”, and two PD songs that don’t appear on any other Fred Neil album; the traditional folk song, “Once I Had A Sweetheart”, and the African-American spiritual, “Blind Man Standing By The Road And Crying”. The latter is our personal favorite, and despite the biography mentioning the song cutting off before it ends, Delmore’s tape magically contained the complete performance in all its glory. Fred takes the song on a personal and deep journey, and Peter adds the most perfect musical touches. It’s also the first appearance on a Fred Neil record of one of the many Spiritual songs that were often a part of his live repertoire.
