Charlie Watts On Later.
1. BBC Radio 4 Desert Island Disc, 2. BBC Radio 2 Jim Keltner Project &
More, 3. BBC Radio 2 Chris Evans Interview.
release is the first tribute to the late great Charlie Watts and presents his
last show with the Stones as well as solo broadcasts over the years when promoted
his solo activities. The Hard Rock Café in Miami, which was the final concert
of the 2019 US Tour had been previously released as no label releases No Filter
Miami 2019 (2 cdr) and Miami Gardens 2019 (2 cd & 1 DVD-R), a tour that has
escaped the usual coverage by WLR, so this is the first time this label presents
such recording. It is in fact a very nice stereo well balanced document of that
night concert which should have been played in September but was anticipated
due to a forthcoming storm. Amazingly this is also the last time the band
played Brown Sugar in the USA. At the end of Disc Two there is the version of
You Can’t Always Gey What You Want the band played with each member at his own
location, possibly he only time this version is available on silver, as well as
the NME C.Watts interview, which is interesting, unfortunately the questions
are omitted, so we only get Charlie’s answers and guess what the questions
were. The second concert is a 2008 broadcast from TSF Jazz Radio of an ABC
&D of Boogie Woogie, the combo he played in with his teenage friend Dave
Green on double bass, Axel Zwingerberger and Ben Waters on piano, in this show
there is also Xavier Richardeau on sax on Somebody Done Changed The Lock On My Door
and Roll’Em Pete. This is a very enjoyable recording, too bad the radio
announcer talks over between songs preventing listeners to hear what is said on
stage. Charlie Watts starts playing after being introduced by Ben Waters together
with Dave Green. Discs Four and Five presents the CW Tentet live and come from
the original BBC3 2001 broadcast of the June 12th Ronnie Scott’s show,
in the booklet it is noted that the 2004 Watts at Scott’s album included tracks
from June 12th and 14th concerts. The bonus track Here
Comes Charlie is from the official Chico Hamilton Forestorn cd which was
released on the same day. Disc Six is the only one that presents a concert
previously released on silver disc Aoyama Concert (Empress Valley EVSD 717) whose
front cover shot by Jill Fumanovsky from the Sunday Times won award; this is a
concert held in Japan to present the album From One Charlie dedicated to
Charlie Parker, whose title has been incorrectly quoted here. This was the
Charlie Watts Quintet which included six people including Charlie for this trip
to Japan. The following discs are the recording of both shows played in 1987 in
Philadelphia at the Mellon Jazz Festival (funny how the music has been displayed
here, backwards) which was broadcasted by 950 WPEN Radio; we have here the
Charlie Watts Orchestra which consisted of 30 players, besides Charlie, that
played a somehow more traditional swing jazz. This disc ends with the Matt
Lauer 1993 interview from Later, which is most of the times referred at as
Later with Bob Costas (who Lauer replaced that night) and happened on the day
the album Warm and Tender was released. The last disc consists of three if the interviews
Charlie Watts gave over the years, starting with the Desert Island Disc from BBC4
(that was repeated on June 3rd, 2011 by BBC6), unfortunately the music tracks
are shortened, so it lasts 35 minutes in all; next comes a Johnny Walker
interview from July 2000 and disc ends with Chris Evans 2008 live interview
from London. All in all, this is a nice box and due tribute to Charlie Watts,
hard to say how many copies it sold, but waiting for something official this is
certainly a great release, even if it could have included some more things
though, like the concert recently broadcasted by BBC2 of the Tentet in Cardiff
from 2001 and as far as interviews Stone Alone, The Charlie Watts Story by Stuart
Maconie from 5 August 2000 and a fitting end would have been David Hepworth
BBC4 obituary from August 24th, 2021.
