Cat Russell’s DB Deep Cut Of The Day

“It’s Monday”

As you are no doubt aware, from 2002 through 2004, Catherine Russell worked with David Bowie as a band member, providing backing vocals and featured contributions on guitar, keyboard and percussion for Bowie’s Heathen Tour and A Reality Tour.
Cat is a very successful contemporary jazz and blues vocalist in her own right, so when we asked her to choose a track for DB Deep Cut Of The Day, we suspected she may opt for one of Bowie’s more jazz-flavoured recordings.
But instead she went for the superb guitar-heavy 1977 track, Joe The Lion, from the "Heroes" album, which was partly inspired by performance artist Chris Burden’s, 1974 piece, Trans-Fixed.
Here she explains how she made her selection...

    You know, when we were in rehearsals for the Heathen tour, I combed DB’s catalogue listening to stuff I’d never heard. I found Joe The Lion and listened to it several times in a row for days and weeks on end.
    I just did this again for the past few days. I LOVE THIS TRACK !!!! It reminds me why I love rock 'n' roll in the first place. Why I loved rock 'n' roll as a kid. Why it made me feel included, when I felt like an outsider. All the reasons why I love DB’s music. Everyone can express themselves through the music at the same time.
    I love DB's inspired and partly improvised lyric over the conversation between Carlos and Robert Fripp’s guitars, against George Murray’s bass line and Dennis Davis’ drumming! It’s brilliant! Wild and sexy.
    Even though it was made in Berlin, it reminds me of what New York night life was like in the '70s and '80s, when New York streets were dangerous and vibrant. Much of my teenage life was formed on those streets.
    I could go on, but I think I'll just listen to the song again......

Thanks Catherine, great choice. And as Cat suggests, listen to the song again, here.
