Biography

Funny thing, the music business. A go through the discography of the artist should produce the impression that he’s probably one of the most popular violinists on the planet. In the end, the set of information he has performed on is much longer than some essays. Viewers at countless blockbuster movies experienced his violin within their hearing. Yet inside a rave overview of a soundtrack he participated on for any film that wasn’t such popular, the 1997 Nick Nolte automobile Afterglow, the reviewer waxed enthusiastically on the jazzy Tag Isham soundtrack offering famous brands pianist Geri Allen; exactly the same critic reviews “Violinist Sid Web page can be an unknown…” Zero, he didn’t amass those documenting credits since 1997. Web page is the ideal example of the countless types of music artists who, although achieving the best echelon of the professional globe, remain almost totally unknown not merely to everyone, but to severe, inquisitive music listeners aswell. His goal appears to be one of the better or at least busiest collaborators ever sold. In a documenting career that fundamentally kicked off in the past due ’60s, there appears to be no proof in four years of almost any task released under his very own name. If he provides led any rings by himself, this activity continues to be extremely sidelined and it has left hardly any documentation within the press or Internet. It really is difficult to find out where he was created, and he did at the least interviews over time. One of is own on / off employers, West Coastline goofball Dan Hicks, maintains a thorough website of his personal, but doesn’t offer any background info on some of his regular sidemen. It had been in the clothing Dan Hicks & the Warm Licks that some music listeners had been launched to the playing of Web page. Especially effective was the band’s appearance on the segment from the reside in Concert series, because the most recent electric Kilometers Davis music group was also around the expenses and enthusiasts of strange music had been tuned in from the thousands. Regardless of the predictably far-out Davis music, Hicks’ overall performance of “I Scare Myself was still a show-stealer, the gypsy jazz stylings of Web page even detracting interest from Hicks’ two svelte woman vocalists. Page changed violinist David LaFlamme to create what many experience was the very best lineup for Hicks. The previous man did too much to popularize the violin in rock and roll music along with his group It’s a lovely Day. Web page guested upon this band’s second record, Marrying Maiden. LaFlamme was among several violinists of differing technical ability who have been sending the message in this era that this violin could possibly be an exciting single instrument within the framework of open-ended rock and roll jamming. Page might have adopted along around the path blazed from the French Jean-Luc Ponty, well-known dark fiddler Sugarcane Harris, or Mahavishnu Orchestra guy Jerry Goodman, but rather chose the globe of the LA studios. The effect was that he hardly ever established himself being a single player, but continued to be employed long following the inner mounting fire had gone from the fusion-jazz violin jam campfire. Check thou should, his mighty set of credits. It really is the ultimate way to obtain a concept of what Web page has achieved, since committing an individual musical eyesight to posterity appears not to are already important. His prowess as an improviser, where his order of inventive and astonishing melodic language certainly merits mention, is certainly on screen on the jazzier tasks along with the Scorching Licks material. The quantity of area afforded a program player in the pop and rock and roll tasks varies widely, therefore Page’s contributions can often be even more miss and miss than strike and miss. non-etheless he continues to be along for the trip on the sleepy nation blues of J.J. Cale, the grungy country-rock of Cracker, the simple nation of Suzy Bogguss, as well as the straight-ahead saloon golf swing of Harry Connick Jr. He might be the only real artist to get used Joe Cocker, Suzanne Vega, Richard Thompson, Jerry Garcia, and finally, the Animaniacs Orchestra. (Is the fact that his fiddle lick within the notorious “Lake Titicaca?”) Page not merely takes on on many film soundtracks, his credits also have extended up the meals string to concert expert, meaning he’s not only violinist but manager violinist.
