LOS ANGELES TIMES TUESDAY, MARCH 31, 1992 1 The New Word Jazz of Ken Nordine Pop music: The underground icon is equally at home in TV commercials and beat poetry. Now, he's trying pop, with help from the Dead's Jerry Garcia. By STEVE HOCHMAN SPECIAL TO THE TIMES Few names are equally known in the company of Ginsberg and Chevrolet. And few figures would be welcome in both a Greenwich Village coffee house and a Madison Avenue boardroom. But there is one: The name is Ken Nordine, and the figure is that of a grandfather 71 -year-old. Since the mid-'50s when both beat poetry and modern advertising were in their infancy Nordine has been striking a precarious balance between the two worlds with his distinctive, much-imitated Word Jazz. Remember that mid-70s animated Levi's spot where a guy took the jeans company's logo for a walk? That was Nordine doing a piece of Word Jazz pretty much straight, not compromising his art, yet. still serving the needs of big business. But the truth is, he's never really felt at home in either realm. "The beats, they were more angry; I've never been as angry as they were," he said, his deep, mellifluous voice familiar to any radio listener or TV viewer resonating, through the phone lines from his Chicago home. "Maybe that's because I did commercials as well." And conversely, his non-linear, soft-sell approach sometimes confounds the very advertising executives who hire him. "Let's face it," he said, "most of the commercials on the air are very banal, very safe. You know how conservative some of the companies are." Not that Nordine apologizes for making a living. "The poets think it's demeaning; they think selling stuff on the air is trivial," he said. "But the nice thing about getting a good commercial is you know it won't be obnoxious if you say you won't do certain things. And when I do one, month after month the royalties just come in like an annuity. That's kind of nice." But now he has found kindred spirits among a community that also bridges counterculture and commerce: the Grateful Dead, the hippie-originated San Francisco band that was the top-grossing U.S. pop concert attraction last year. The group's Grateful Dead Records has just released "Devout Catalyst," a new album by Nordine featuring musical backing by the Dead's Jerry Garcia and his sometimes partner, mandolinist David Grisman, and two guest appearances by neo-beat Tom Waits. The relationship began in December, 1990, when the Dead was looking for someone to anchor the radio broadcast of its annual New Year's Eve concert in Oakland. Garcia suggested Nordine, whose work he had loved since the early '60s. Out of the blue, Nordine got a call from the Dead's engineer, Dan Healy. 'T thought he was putting me J. on," Nordine recalled. "I said, 'Sure, buddy.' I said, 'I'm afraid to fly, or my wife is,' and all that bull. Finally, he cajoled me. So I went out there and it was the best thing I ever did. It was like having your ego Simonized. So what if I didn't fit their demographics. I got to fit it. They're a lovely group of people." For the broadcast, Nordine taped some improvisations with guitarist Garcia, Dead drummer Mickey Hart and Egyptian musician Hamza El-Din, and hosted the live concert airing, filling in between songs and during intermissions. The new album grew out of that experience. "Devout Catalyst" will bring instant recognition of his voice and style, which, in addition to his Word Jazz records and the commercials, had an outlet via a mid-'80s National Public Radio series.

One typical track is called "Ways of the Meek," in which he describes a week consisting of "Dumbsday, Bluesday, Endsday, Blursday, Cryday, Shatterday and Stunday." Another, "The Movie," is basically Nordine describing a crazy film idea, with a bemused Waits gamely trying to keep up with the elder master's vivid imagination. It's as sharp and vibrant as anything in Nordine's Word Jazz catalogue, early examples of which can be heard on the recent Rhino Records anthology, "The Best of Word Jazz, Vol. 1." All in all, it's amounting to something of a Nordine renaissance, with a whole new audience of Deadheads and young neo-beat coffee house habitue's that have no problem with his business side. "We did a show recently here at a little place called the Beat Kitchen," he said. "My ears were blushing from the applause. Kids were 1 JAZZ REVIEW Rousing Tribute to Bassist Budwig s The Dead's Jerry Garcia with poet Ken Nordine in band's studio. holding my hand and asking me to sign things, and it was quite a range of people. A stockbroker came down, and a policeman." It's a case, he says, of literally having the last laugh. "I have never taken myself that seriously," he said. "I think the world deals lightly with people who take it too seriously, when they'll take seriously people who have a light-hearted attitude." I ometimes the most commend-. able events in music are trig-'gered by the least desirable circumstances. Such an occasion was an all-star tribute to the late bassist Monty Budwig, held Sunday afternoon on the Chaplin stage at the A&M Studios. Budwig, who died March 9 of cancer, would have been proud to observe not only the huge turnout, but also the parade of artists who contributed their talent. Produced by Betty Berry, the show ran smoothly, from the opening set by her husband, Bill Berry, to the closing number by Supersax. Tony Bennett flew in from New York for the occasion. Backed simply by a rhythm section with Ross Tompkins at the piano, he was in loose, easy form in a brief set of standards. Rosemary Clooney also benefited from an intimate setting that enabled her to contribute a relaxed, unpretentious performance. Berry's big band dug deep into Duke Ellington's "Harlem Air-shaft," with a reading that was uncanny in its fidelity to the origi nal. His Ellington-oriented set was notable for the alto sax of Marshal Royal, the pepper-shaking trombone of Buster Cooper and the chance-taking tenor of Herman Riley, who clearly doesn't believe in safe sax. The surprise of the day was Arlette McCoy Budwig, the bassist's widow. Replacing Pete Jolly with the Lighthouse All-Stars, she played "Night Blossom," offering impressive evidence of her talents as pianist, composer and arranger. Frank Collett's piano trio set was notable for a blues dedicated to Budwig, highlighting the supple bass of John Gianelli. Terry Gibbs added a couple of damn-the-torpe-does vibes solos to this set. A jam session produced no startling innovations, but when an ad hoc band includes Stacy Rowles on fluegelhorn, Teddy Edwins on tenor sax and Mundell Lowe on guitar, what you get, as expected, is sterling performances of such war-horses as "Body and Soul." In sum, this was a rare display of good vibes, good music and good will. -LEONARD FEATHER Bargain Matinees Daily (except starred features) M Credit Card 1st 2 features Mon. thru Sat. 1st feature Sun. & Holidays.
