2008 release. Vampisoul offers you David Axelrod's very first UK orchestral performance, live at the Royal Festival Hall in London in . A Grammy award-winning producer for Capitol Records who helmed dozens of great jazz, funk and soul records during the 1960s and '70s (David, McCallum, Lou Rawls, Stan Kenton, The Electric Prunes, Cannonball Adderley...), David Axelrod also forged a distinctive musical style while recording several of the most eccentric albums of the '70s. His music was rediscovered in the '90s, and has been sampled by key hip-hop artists such as Dr.Dre, DJ Shadow, or Lauryn Hill. On this performance, from Dean Rudland's liner notes: "The show opens with what sounds like an Axelrod classic, but is in fact, a re-composition specifically written for the show, the Rolling Stones' 'Paint it Black.' 'How could I come to England and not pay tribute to the Beatles or the Rolling Stones?' explained David. And sure enough, the show's closing moment is dedicated to Lennon and McCartney's 'Norwegian Wood,' sealing the overall unique experience of Axe's evening. In between, for the best part of an hour and a half, we were treated to an incredible selection of David Axelrod's music, mainly taken from his work on the William Blake inspired albums Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience." DVD is NTSC, all region format.
