FURTHER CONVERSATIONS WITH BUELL NEIDLINGER — PART 2

–A horse scampers off on the suburban track, and
along the tilled fields and woodlands, pervaded by
the carbonic plague. A miserable woman of drama,
somewhere in the world, sighs for improbable de-
sertions. Desperados pine for strife, drunkenness and
wounds. –Little children stifle their maledictions
along the rivers.

Arthur Rimbaud from ILLUMINATIONS as translated by Louise Varese

RIFFING ON RIMBAUD

Santa Anita never was luck for me,
pervaded in carbonic smog, choking pine
trees of coughing San Gabriel Mountains —
miserable drunkenness the horse tracked
the woodlands without me, the
the freeway on-ramps crowded with
hitch-hiking French children.

As promised: Part 2 of our Live radio talk with maestro Buell Neidlinger — possible threads of conversation:
* Studying bass with Walter Page
*Playing at Eddie Condon’s club with Pee Wee Russell
* Edgar Varese
*the intricacies of bluegrass + jazz
*seeing the ghost of Henry Grimes through the window of Catalina’s while on stage
* Harry Partch
*subbing for Haden in Ornette’s band at 5 Spot
*accordionsville: Frank Marocco, Mat Matthews, Art Van Damme
*and who is “Mike” in Buell’s composition “Cecil/Mike”?

    Louise Varese Is Dead; Literary Translator, 98

    Published: August 16, 1989

    Louise Varese, an American biographer and translator of French and the widow of the composer Edgard Varese, died on July 1 in Eugene, Ore. She was 98 years old.

    Mrs. Varese wrote a biography of her husband, ”Varese: A Looking-Glass Diary,” which was published in 1972. Among the authors whose works she translated are Stendhal, Proust, Georges Simenon, Julien Gracq, St.-John Perse and Arthur Rimbaud.

    In 1948, she received the Denyse Clairouin Award – named for a French Resistance heroine who died in a concentration camp – for her translation of Baudelaire’s ”Paris Spleen.”

    Mrs. Varese is survived by a son from an earlier marriage, Michael T. Norton, and a granddaughter, Sylvia Calderwood, both of Eugene, Ore., and three great-grandchildren.
