|Who Remembers Imani Coppola?|
|Present - Here and Now|

Well, she ain't Imani Coppola any more. She goes by Little Jackie now, and back in September she did a gig in Hollywood...
Back in 1997, when Imani Coppola was still Imani Coppola, she had quite a big hit called 'Legend of a Cowgirl', which I thought was great. I felt to go out and buy her album just on the strength of that song, but I never got round to it. Partly because the album was pretty scarce in the UK, and when I did find it, I wasn't prepared to pay the import price for it (which would have been about £18/$28 or so). Not that many of my friends had heard of her, and I couldn't get the album so as time went by I kinda forgot about her. That was until I looked through the KCRW events website one day saw Little Jackie, checked her out and found out who she really was. I have no idea why she decided to change her name, but I'm sure she has her reasons. Whatever the case, the gig was great.
After the opening band (who were far too bizarre for me to mention here) came on, Little Jackie's two backing singers came on and then she followed. The style of music was quite similar to her old stuff but with a 60's kinda twist. She even got out her violin and guitar for some of the songs.
One of the highlights of the gig was this other woman that came on midway between the set. She was a beat-boxer. I have no idea who she was, but she was amazing, one of the best I'd heard.
After the gig, I got the album. It's pretty good. You can check it out on her myspace page.

“Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind...And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded with patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader, and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar.”
