A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH MCGILL-MANRING-STEVENS Bay Area bassist Michael Manring is joined by two virtuosos
form the Philadelphia area, guitarist Scott McGill and drummer
Vic Stevens. Recently, they released their second CD as the trio,
McGill-Manring-Stevens. It's called CONTROLLED BY RADAR (Free
Electric Sound). A double CD, one disc is electric and the other
disc is acoustic. In a live Echoes performance the trio brings
their semi-acoustic side with McGill on acoustic guitar, Stevens
on drums and Manring on fretless electric bass. It's an exhilarating
performance from three virtuosos.
RETURN TO TWANGQUILITY
We'll be hearing country twang in ambient terrain with pedal steel
guitars and slide dobros resonating in space. It's new atmospheric
music with a decidedly country tinge, including new music from
Daniel Lanois [LAN-wah} and Ed Bilous's [BIL-lows] score to FRONTIER
HOUSE. It's a Return to Twangquility, from Twangquility Base
DAVID & STEVE GORDON: SOUNDING THE RITUAL CHANT In the second of two features, brothers David & Steve
Gordon talk about extending their tribal drum sound into global
chants and electronica grooves. Best know for their drumming CDs
like SACRED SPIRIT DRUMS and DRUM MEDICINE (Sequoia), the brothers
have split into new areas of music. Steve Gordon released his
solo debut, DRUM PRAYER (Sequoia), which, despite the title is
about voice as much as rhythm. He creates original chants using
words in Sanskrit and Lakota. David Gordon, meanwhile, has produced
an album by the singer, Sophia, called CHAKRA HEALING CHANTS (Sequoia)
which fuses Sanskrit and Hebrew words. We visit each of their
studios where they unfold their new direction.
