Mark Zaputil - amazingly versatile guitarit
I want to tell everybody about a hidden treasure in our Quad-Cities’ midst: Mark Zaputil.
Mark has been around the Quad-Cities quite a while – he was a member of the legendary group Silver Laughter, which had quite a following in the 1970s. Mark, who is a music instructor, went to St. Ambrose University when I worked there (he earned a bachelor of elected studies degree, with a minor in psychology, from St. Ambrose and before that an associate of arts degree from Black Hawk College in Moline.
I had never heard Mark play until he presented me with his new CD: “Five Points by Zap.” WOW. Mark can and does play anything on here, and he wrote four out of the six songs on the disc. He plays lead and rhythm guitars, slide guitar, bass guitar, drums and also sings.
The first cut is the country-flavored “Five Points” guitar melody that Mark wrote himself. It tunefully rolls along – believe me, you won’t find any better driving music than this enjoyable instrumental so good that it would have fit right in on a Chet Atkins album.
The second cut is a great resurrection of “I Love You,” a 1960s worldwide phenomenon by People! Mark cuts loose on a gorgeous guitar solo here, and you can’t beat the always-delicious vocals of Carol Anne Chouteau, who is featured through the CD on vocals and flute.
Mark’s sly sense of humor and vocals are present on “New Toys Old Toys.” “Love child, everyone has one … love child, everyone but me!” Mark delivers a soaring rock solo on this one.
On the other hand, “July 22nd” is a reflection on Mary Magdalene’s Feast Day with a hard-driving beat that reflects influences by the likes of Iron Butterfly, Steppenwolf and Grand Funk Railroad. This one gives Mark a chance to really cut loose and is perhaps his finest solo moment.
“Your Love is Forever” is a beautiful and often under-recognized tune by George Harrison, and I think the late Beatle would appreciate Mark’s rendition that’s a gorgeous, undeniable tribute to the way Harrison played guitar (who knows what kind of musical nirvana they could have reached had they performed together).
“Reflective Eyes,” the final cut, is another lovely instrumental that’s quiet and, well, reflective. Listening to it is as relaxing as watching the water on a quiet day on the Mississippi River. I've had to think about it for a few weeks, but I've decided this one is my favorite.
It’s no wonder this guy has great dexterity and talent: Mark studied with English rock guitarist Robert Fripp and with Ravi Shankar!
If you appreciate good music -- and why would you be here, otherwise? -- buy Mark’s CD.
Mark, thanks for sharing your talent!
