THE WORLD OF CAPTAIN BEEFHEART featuring Nona Hendryx and Gary Lucas was recorded at Eastside Sound in NYC, and is a comprehensive overview of the man’s towering legacy, re-imagined and infused with new blood by Hendryx and Lucas, who starred in a symphonic Beefheart Tribute with Amsterdam’s famed 65-piece Metropole Orchestra at the Paradiso a few years ago.

Their new album strikes a fine balance between the more bluesy and grooveaccessible songs in the Captain Beefheart oeuvre —including “Sun Zoom Spark” and “Her Eyes are a Blue Million Miles” from Beefheart’s 1973 “Clear Spot” album, “Too Much Time” and “When It Blows Its Stacks” from 1972’s “The Spotlight Kid”, “Sure ’Nuff ’n Yes I Do” and “I’m Glad” from “Safe as Milk”, and “Tropical Hot Dog Night” from 1977’s “Shiny Beast”—to the more extreme, darker and weirder side of Beefheart, including “When Big Joan Sets Up” and “Sugar ’n Spikes” from 1969’s “Trout Mask Replica”, and “The Smithsonian Institute Blues” from 1970’s “Lick My Decals Off, Baby”.

Nona Hendryx is a longtime fierce admirer of Don Van Vliet’s music, and possesses a huge voice and the commanding stage presence to do full justice to Van Vliet’s unforgettable multi-octave voice. Nona is no stranger to stepping out of her funk/soul roots with Labelle (“Lady Marmalade”)- by way of her many r&b-tinged solo albums- and into more experimental rock territory “where the wild things are”, as a guest vocalist with cutting-edge rock ensembles like Talking Heads, Material, and Casual Gods.

Gary Lucas cut his guitar teeth as an incendiary player and soloist on the last two Captain Beefheart albums, “Doc at the Radar Station” (1980) and “Ice Cream for Crow” (1982). A world-renowned guitarist and a Grammynominated songwriter and composer, Gary has released over 30 acclaimed albums in a variety of genres—including last year’s tribute to the music from Max Fleischer’s cartoons: “Gary Lucas’ FLEISCHEREI”— which was chosen as one of the Best Albums of the Year by DownBeat.
