1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Shalom Freedman HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on October 23, 2007
The occasion of this interview is Simon's being first recipient of the Gershwin Award. As Simon explains it this is given for musical achievement which is like Gershwin's. Simon defines this as multicultural, sophisticated music , of harmonic complexity which integrates popular and high culture elements elegantly.
The interview is a friendly if not particularly exciting one. There is no question about Art Garfunkel. There is a certain tone of regret in it, as apparently the past ten years have not been the most wonderful for Simon in terms of popularity.
Rose asks him about the creative process in regard to song- writing. And Simon says that initially it is as if a person has a certain well of melodies and music which they can bring out. But then a different process is required. Perhaps he is referring to the difference between his earlier most popular song- writing period and what has come later. I may be wrong but it seems to me that the songs people have most loved of Simon were those like ' A Bridge over Troubled Waters' 'Sounds of Silence' 'Mrs. Robinson' which came in the earlier Garfunkel phase of his career. And this though much is made in the interview of the success of 'Graceland' which came in the middle years.
Simon talks about his being influenced by various kinds of musical traditions, including Jamaican and South African music.
Simon laments what has become of the Music business, and suggests that considering the way people IPOD listen to music now putting out a new track with twelve - songs on it might simply be irrelevant.
There is a sense of 'Sic transit gloria mundi' in the interview.
And so it appropriately closes with Simon singing 'Slip- Sliding Away' though paradoxically in a very passionate, involved way.
