Although Brian Eno is esteemed as the Godfather of ambient music, he began by crafting witty, knotty and idiosyncratic songs, first with Roxy Music and then on solo albums like HERE COME THE WARM JETS and TAKING TIGER MOUNTAIN BY STRATEGY. Those CDs have been recently re-issued, but Eno also has a brand new recording of songs, his first in over 15 year. It's called ANOTHER DAY ON EARTH (Rykodisc) and it's an excursion into profound melancholy, tinged with Eno's whimsy. We talk with Eno about his return to singing.

Christopher O'Riley is a noted classical concert pianist as well as the host of Public Radio International's From the Top radio program. You'll usually hear him playing Scriabin and Mozart, but two years ago he put out an album called TRUE LOVE WAITS (Sony Classical), which consisted of songs by the English art rock group Radiohead. O'Riley transcribed their music for piano and in the process recast them as classical pieces. O'Riley has returned with a new CD of Radiohead tunes, HOLD ME TO THIS (World Village). O'Riley returns to the Echoes Living Room to play music from his album as well as an unreleased version of a tune by the late Elliott Smith.

Jon Jenkins is an electronic composer who grew up listening to the progressive rock of Genesis and Pink Floyd. You can still hear that influence in his latest album, BEYOND CITY LIGHT (Spotted Peccary Records), but he's gotten more expansive in his approach, creating elongated melodies and slowly evolving orchestrations. In the studios of Spotted Peccary Records, Jon Jenkins takes us inside his dream orchestra.
