'Ruby, Ruby' his newest
Gato still Gato
On Ruby, Ruby, his latest, Gato Barbieri
is influenced by the Latin sounds of Herb
Alpert while he retains his own strong
Tenor saxophonist Gato Barbieri's career
can be broken down into three distinct
stages. Early on, when he was recording on
Flying Dutchman, he broke into the
American jazz scene with a bold new sound.
He combined the rhythms and percussive
nature of his roots in Latin American music
with a tenor style somehow grating and
melodic at the same time. Some of his
sidemen on the Flying Dutchman releases,
such as Stanley Clarke, Lonnie Liston
Smith, Airto and John Abercrombie, have
also become jazz stars in their own right. The
albums of that period were raw and
challenging, and remain fresh today.

The second stage of Gato's career began in
1973 when he signed on with ABC Impulse.
During the period from 1973 to 1975. he
released a series of four albums, Chapter
One ("Latin America") through Chapter
Four ("Alive in New York"), not counting
the forgettable "Last Tango in Paris"
soundtrack. Chapter One is perhaps the
definitive album of the set. Recorded in Rio
de Janeiro, Gato assembled a band of fellow
South Americans for the sessions, some
playing Brazilian Indian instruments. The
result was a record of exciting and exotic
music. It was a bit loose in execution, but it
was tight in structure, with Gato's tenor
floating wildly above the earthy bed. It was a
high-energy outing, certainly not for the
mellow, laid-back listener. Sound promising
to you? If so, good news: Chapter One is
available in most record stores' bargain bins
for $1.99or $2.99. It is highly recommended.

In 1976, coinciding with the sudden
discovery of jazz by the mass record-buying
public, Herb Alpert (yes, that Herb Alpert)
wooed and won Gato for his own A&M
Records. Gato's first release on A&M, last
year's Caliente, was also produced by Alpert.
For a jazz album it was very successful in
commercial terms. It was also very pleasant
in musical terms, but it posed a danger sign.
Don't worry; Gato has not pulled a
George Benson on us. His playing is still as
rough and vital as ever, and his singing is still
limited to his unique brand of Latino scat.
But the new album Ruby. Ruby is nearly
ruined by Alpert's influence. Ruby, Ruby is
vastly over-produced. Alpert has given the
record a crassly slick sound, and the lush

string accompaniments are reminiscent of
Muzak at best. Alpert's forgivable mistakes
of Caliente are grossly distracting excesses
on Ruby, Ruby.
Don't misunderstand. Ruby, Ruby is not a
bad album by any means it is simply
cluttered by Alpert's idea of the sound that
will sell records for Gato. Gato himself still
wails as usual. He remains one of the most
original and inventive musicians in jazz
today. Those of us who respect his music
greatly can only hope that he will reject
Alpert's commercial "carrot on a stick."

Hi u ?
The animal and agricultural exhibits are some of the most popular at this year'sState
Fair. This Alpine goat shows off her floppy ears and her prize-winning smile as she
tries to eat the photographer's lens. Mike Sneed was persistent, though, and
managed to get a close-up of the goat, who was being judged not for her smile or
ears, but for the size of her udders. Sneed didn't stick around to see if she won.
Owners spend weeks preparing their animals
for the State Fair and other fairs within and
outside North Carolina. And when they get
to the fair, they have to keep their animals
warm. The sheep, which are the only animals
kept outside, wear what appear to be white
laboratory coats on chilly autumn nights.
On Sunday the dairy goat show occupied
the arena in the livestock pavilion, otherwise
known as the big pen. It lasted from noon
until 8 p.m.
Judge Norman A. Austin examined 286
udders in the all-doe show, and awarded
prizes in several categories depending on the
age of the goat, its breed and the size of its
udder. , .......
Five breeds were shown: the traditional
white Saanan goat, the Nubian long-eared
goat, the no-ears LaMancha, the
Toggenburg and the Alpine.
Diane Bradway, who runs Panderfax
Dairy Goats in Apex, brought 14 does to the
fair out of a herd of 18 Alpines. The Alpines
have erect ears and are brown with different
colored markings. She says that the bucks
are breeding at this time of year and are
shown only in the spring. "Right now, they
look pretty scruffy, because they have one
thing on their mind," she says.
She has been raising goats for four years,
and adds that the farms that have been at it
for 20 years are walking away with most of
the first- and second-place ribbons. Her does
have won 1 3 ribbons, although most were for
third place and below. But she is proud to say
thata 13-year-old 4-Her, Teresa Junger, who
keeps a kid and a milker at Panderfax, won
three firsts a second, a third, '.two grand
champions and one junior champion.
The goats are taken from their mothers
immediately after birth and are hand-raised
and bottle-fed, Diana says. "It takes them a
long time to realize they are goats; they think
In preparation for each show, the goats
must be kept in good shape, and must be
used to being led around a ring. Directly
before each show, their hair is clipped close
and their feet must be trimmed, she adds.
And they have to be talked to a lot, she
says. "We tell them how pretty they are and
how intelligent they are and to stay away
from that apple tree, or else."
