‘Laurel Canyon’ will take you back to the magic time of the 60s



'Laurel Canyon' will take you back to the magic time of the 60s

If you are looking for a place to escape from the house where you have been trapped for more than two months in lockdown, then “Laurel Canyon” might be.

The two-part document, aired May 31 and June 7 on Epix, takes you back to the magic period in the 60s, when the Laurel Canyon area in the Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles is music utopia for everyone from Jackson Browne and Joni Mitchell to David Crosby and Neil Young.

Yup, it’s back when there is free love, not social distance.

Directed by Alison Elwood (“American Jihad”), this series captures the free spark of times when we need to remember most of the ways people are connected.

“It was not a scene at the time. It was just a better place to live – above the haze,” Crosby recalled moving there as a member of The Byrds.

“It’s like living in the countryside, but you’re in a big city,” said The Byrds’ Roger McGuinn about the beautiful setting.

Henry Diltz from Modern Folk Quartet remembers moving to a studio in Laurel Canyon. At night, he said, “it was very quiet, except for the owl.”

“We used to call it Oz,” said Love guitarist Johnny Echols, who told a touching story about taking his instrument for the first time: “The vibrations only tickled my soul. It is a love relationship that continues to this day. “

And about how the band got its name, Echols just said, “We just like music.”

But one of the most telling and timely moments came when Echols remembered getting advice from Little Richard, a stone pioneer who died on May 9 and who had lived in the Laurel Canyon area. When Richard unlocks the keys for “Lucille,” Echols remembers traveling with him to England.

“We met these four people,” he said. “They used to follow Richard around … sycophants as far as I could see. Then in Los Angeles, I was invited to see the Beatles. I don’t believe that. The little people who run after Richard are the biggest things in the world.”

After the classic The Eagles “Take It Easy” introduces the second episode, LA DJ Jim Ladd tells how it was not easy at all because the Vietnam War and the civil rights war at home continued. “The whole social order of the country is in turmoil,” said Ladd, who at that time had “hair down the middle of my back.”

Ladd said that the hippies of Laurel Canyon did not always receive the love they spread in their peaceful place. “They are people who hate us,” he said. “They don’t like hippies.”

But Browne landed exactly why Laurel Canyon was a hippie paradise. “‘Hippies’ are like young people who are just growing up, just opening, just blooming, someone getting hip,” he said. “There’s a way to live your life in the open, be a freak and not regret who you are.”

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
