Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta AIM 1W74 TNI I 1 7 Top U.S. jazz musician to tour Canadian cities 15'? TORONTO (CP) Chuck Manglone, one of today's Freshat contemporary jan musicians, comet to Canada this week for the last leg of hU North American tour. no one seems more blighted about his pending irisllthanhe. Canadians have come to know and welcome the fluid ityle of Mangione's Flugelhorn, a large, trumpet- like instrument. His latest ilbum, Land Of Make Be- lieve, a live concert recorded last year in Toronto, is wiling well in Canada. In Toronto last week for a promotion junket, Chuck Mar- gione spoke of his jazz sound and his surprise at its ready acceptance within a pre- Jominently young, rock- ariented society. "The Canadian audience and the reception of our music in a relatively short period of time has been lie said. "I don't think we (the Chuck Mangione Quartet) are a household word. We don't get extensive' air play all over the Don't Overlook NOOK Coming Soon! place became ouf music long and most of it is instrumental But there's weird kind of thing happening. "Two yean ago I didn't think that we could have gotten five people to know anything about our music over said. "We've been travelling all over the country and I'm constantly surprised at the number of people who are aware of us." WON FESTIVAL ACCLAIM With five albums to his credit, Manglone has estab- lished himself as a major iazx artist and writer. His mellow performance on the flugelhorn and his magic compositions have helped Mangione's Quartet earn two Grammy Award nominations, build a large following in North America and win acclaim at the Montreux International Jazz Festival in Switzerland. Mangione's music is serious, lacking in the commercial gimmickry which often helps sell pop music. But if this omission has held back record sales, the, 33-year-old New Yorker is not concerned, nor will he change his refreshingly free style. "I've never thought about music in terms of a he Mid. "I think our most suc- cessful things have been music that I've written and just believed in enough to record and play for people." Funeral held for song writer TORONTO (CP) A funeral service was, held today for Frank L. Somers, 73, who wrote the music for the song Vagabond 'Lover made popular in the 1920s by crooner Rudy Vallee. Mr. Somers, who died here Friday, wrote the music for Vagabond Lover, with different words, for a social event here. He sold the score to a United States music library for a small sum and Mr. Vallee bought it from the library.

You pay no more than prices quoted at participating Esso retailers Csso TORONTO (CP) After three years of wandering, ful- filling his ambition to visit ev- ery country before he is 40, Phil Ochs, veteran protest singer of the fathers of the modem folk movement, is back on the concert-hall folk-club circuit, rekindling memories of his Flower Girl and Changes. The reason behind his re- turn is, he says, political. "I was in Nigeria when President Nixon fired Cox and I said that's it. Nixon has got to go. I bet that he'd be ousted and I have come back to protect my bet." Ochs also proved that his songs have stood the test of time. He has written little in the last few years and his present repertoire consists of the songs that made him fa- mous during the mid-'60s. His appearances still are topped with such classics as Flower Girl and Changes and the atmosphere is virtually identical to the mood of pro- test and social inequality sur- rounding Greenwich Village a decade ago. "The only thing that wor- ries me now is that I'm not Ochs said during a recent one-week stint at To- ronto's Riverboat coffee, house. "But I've reached the point where I realize that I never knew where the songs came from in the first and I don't know why they're not corning now." Nonetheless, Ochs, 'at 33, continues to break records on his current North American tour which includes appear- ances in Montreal, Ottawa and Vancouver, in Toronto, crowds, many in their 30s, filled the tiny Riverboat. Ochs himself has lost none of his magic. Even today, the songs are captivating and relevant. The humor, too, is still there. is the last one, folks. After this I'll be looking for ladies and drinks." Ochs' previous comeback in 1970, was less successful, cul- minating in what many con- sidered a disastrous attempt to play rock 'n' roll at New York's Carnegie Hall. The concert was interrupted by a bomb scare, there was no in- termission and towards the end a power failure disrupted the music. Ochs look back and laughs. remember when I ap- peared in my gold suit. No one in the audience could believe it. What I was trying to do was relate the intellectual social mood with workingclass music. I was being out- rageous and it worked as far as I was concerned. But the promoter was almost ruined." An album cut from the Car- negie Hall concert was re- jected in the United States be- cause, the record company felt, it went against every- thing Ochs had done in the past. The record, Gunfight at Carnegie Hall, recently has been released in Canada.

Dr Homer told a sub- committee studying his departmental estimates that his department would approach both the CTV and CBC networks to improve their programming about farmers. ''They can do all the yelling they like about consumer prices but they had better have their facts about production costs he told the committee. He said the networks were "pretty delinquent" in producing factual farm prograrhs. He said the province was willing to compare its farm programs with those of the networks any time. Dr. Horner suggested programs on agricultural topics should be broadcast during prime viewing hours. It might cost more but was worthwhile because few people saw Sunday afternoon productions. Record price for gold coins VANCOUVER (CP) Gold coins brought record prices at an auction here in what a dealer described as inflation at work. Two sets of 1912-through- 1914 and pieces in uncirculated condition went for each. Dealers said similar sets were selling a week age for about "People don't want to keep paper said dealer Benny Lee. "They want gold because it'll go up with inflation. Every month, gold prices go up 21 per cent." "Our public relations if almost as bad as the he said.
