6 recording artists for fall
by Roberto Friedman
1. The celebrated Bay Area string ensemble Kronos Quartet has made some kick-ass collaborations with other musical artists over the years, but their new album “Ladilikan,” a creation with the Malian group Trio Da Kali, is certainly one of their best.
Da Kali is a trio that brings contemporary edge to traditional Malian music, blending a balafon (xylophone), a bass ngoni (flute) and a vocalist. The Kronos, consisting of violinists David Harrington and John Sherba, violist Hank Dutt and cellist Sunny Yang , are no strangers to world music. Da Kali singer Hawa Diabate is the daughter of Mali’s great traditional singer Kasse Mady Diabate . Kronos leader Harrington compares her voice to that of the late American gospel legend Mahalia Jackson . Composer Jacob Garchik , son of SF Chronicle columnist Leah Garchik, arranged Trio Da Kali’s repertoire for string quartet.

â€œThe Ruby Wax Showâ€ has a distinctly British feel. Itâ€™s a lark, as Wax compares breasts with Pamela Anderson Lee, climbs into bed with Goldie Hawn and goes shopping with Bette Midler. But the thing that makes it work â€” both here and abroad â€” is Waxâ€™s Midwestern straightforwardness, which must seem as exotic to U.K.viewers as â€œCrackerâ€ is to us.
Wax holds up one of Leeâ€™s skimpy T-shirts and says with disbelief, â€œNow, you donâ€™t have a 4-year-old child. This is for your body.â€ She discusses childbirth with Hawn, saying, â€œI never forgave my children for not knowing where the exit was.â€ She compares struggling actor jobs with Midler and talks about being a waitress at the Evanston Holiday Inn.

â€œI know Iâ€™ll never have another â€˜nervous breakdownâ€™ again. Know why? I found the magic words, â€˜I donâ€™t care!â€™ Now, I stand whereÂ they tell me to stand, say what they tell me to say, wear what they want me to wear.â€
Midlerâ€™s latest movie, â€œThat Old Feeling â€ opens Friday, and naturally, the sta r would love to have another big hit. But even ifÂ this romantic comedy isn â€™t a success on the level of â€œThe First Wives Club,â€ Bette has other fish ready for frying, broiling or baking.

“There are only three ages for women in Hollywood,” she says.
“Babe, district attorney and ‘Driving Miss Daisy.”‘
If that line struck a chord with audiences, it’s because we know how hard it is to find a mainstream Hollywood comedy starring aÂ group of actresses the caliber â€” and age â€” of Hawn, Bette Midler and Diane Keaton. Well, instead of congratulating Hollywood for
putting these three women together. we should be asking what took them so long. Female buddy movies like “The First Wives Club” (1996, Paramount, priced for rental) weren’t always this hard to find.

HOLLYWOOD â€” How do you generate interest in an Oscar show when most of the public hasn’t seen the nominated pictures because of limited releases? “You just hope they tune in out of habit,” says Oscar show producer Gil Gates.
He says people watch the Academy Awards in part because “They like to see the stars dressed up and they like the entertainment.”
Big stars he’s got for the March 24 awards, include Madonna, Kenny Loggins, Geline Dion, Diane Keaton, Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler, Mel Gibson, Nicolas Gage, Kevin Spacey and Susan Sarandon. Billy Grystal hosts.

The Real First Wives Club
Daily Mail (London)
September 27, 1996
Byline: SUZY GREAVES
WITH one in three marriages ending in divorce, it comes as no surprise that the biggest hit in Hollywood this autumn is The First Wives Club, starring Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keeton as three wives who are abandoned for younger women.
FEMAIL tracked down a real-life First Wives Club in the form of three sisters. Julie Murphy, Veronica Hyland and Ann-Marie Woodall are Roman Catholics who grew up in Manchester. They were all married at a early age and each of their husbands left them for a younger model. Here, the sisters talk about their experiences and the status of being a `first wife’.
Veronica Hyland, 43, was married to Tom, a school headmaster, for 20 years.

BetteBack September 21, 1996: A MEMBER OF THE CLUB, AND LOVING IT – An Interview With Olivia Goldsmith
Olivia Goldsmith has a guilty pleasure. It doesn’t involve hanging out on Hollywood movie sets schmoozing with such stars as Goldie Hawn, Diane Keaton and Bette Midler, though she has done her fair share of exactly that.
What it does involve is the down-and-dirty pursuit of sitting in coffee shops and people-watching. It’s all a part of the benefits she’s reaping from the blood, sweat and (she assures) tears that went into writing her hugely successful first novel, “The First Wives Club.”
