THE INTERVIEW....
DEBBI (Whats On Central Coast) - Hi John, Thanks for your time.
Mysterious Travellers is a star-studded band with an image-conjuring name, where did it originate?
JOHN PRIOR - Hi Deb, thanks for asking! We named our new band Mysterious Travellers because we’re performing a tribute to the jazz-rock-world-groove music (or “fusion”) of Weather Report and that was the name of one of their early albums.
Also, the musicians in our band – Dale Barlow (sax), Bill Risby (keys), Phil Scorgie (bass) and me (drums) - like to travel and apparently we can seem a bit mysterious before you get to know us.
WOCC - Why perform a tribute to Weather Report?
JP - Well, it was a toss-up between Weather Report and Kiss, but the costumes didn’t fit. Seriously, we just love Weather Report’s music, it’s so melodic and uplifting and a wonderful balance between composition and improvisation.
WOCC - Which members of Weather Report most influence the band members of Mysterious Travellers – who is whose favourite?
JP - We all admire Joe Zawinal (keys) and Wayne Shorter (sax), who both worked with Miles Davis before forming Weather Report, because they were leaders in their field, and Jaco Pastorious is generally considered to be one of the greatest bass guitar virtuosos ever, he basically reinvented how to play bass. They had a few drummers, but my favourites were Alex Acuna, Peter Erskine and Omar Hakim – all brilliant.
WOCC - What’s in the repertoire? Any originals?
JP - We’ve chosen some of the best-known Weather Report songs and some obscure faves, plus some of our originals. Like Weather Report, everyone in our band composes.
WOCC - What is involved in the Masterclass?
JP - The masterclass is designed for music students and Weather Report fans. Dale teaches at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and Phil teaches at JMC Academy, so they know what Bill is talking about, although Dale and I tell the most jokes.
We will discuss and perform music by Weather Report, jazz-groove composition, arrangement and improvisation and talk about our experiences working with musical legends Art Blakey, Dizzy Gillespie, Billy Cobham, Adrian Belew and Lee Ritenour.
