A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH PETER KATER Southern California based pianist and composer Peter Kater
comes into the Echoes Living Room to play a set of solo piano
live. We know Peter Kater from his many collaborations with Native
flute player R. Carlos Nakai, ensemble recordings that range from
neo-primitive to neo-chamber, and solo albums that explore his
wide-ranging piano skills. Last year's RED MOON was a Grammy
nominee and an Echoes CD of the Month. Peter Kater's first recording
was a solo piano CD and his latest album picks up the solo thread.
It's aptly called PIANO (Point of Light Records) and draws on
compositions from across Kater's career. In a living room in
Chester County, Pennsylvania, Peter Kater plays some of that music
live on Echoes.
ECHOES MARCH CD OF THE MONTH
LANTERNA: "HIGHWAYS" Lanterna is guitarist Henry Frayne, a musician who's on the
leading edge of Ambient Americana music. Based in Champaign,
Illinois, Frayne has been recording as Lanterna since the mid-1990s.
Before that he was a member of the ethereal rock groups Area
and Moon Seven Times. As Lanterna, Frayne articulates an open-air,
country-tinged sound that recalls Ry Cooder's Paris, Texas soundtrack
but with a more electronica and ambient edge. His latest CD,
HIGHWAYS, released on the Badman label, is a perfect soundtrack
for a journey heading west into the sun.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH AL JEWER & ANDY MITRAN Hailing from Chicago, Al Jewer and Andy Mitran make a music
born of the western plains and transmuted through synthesized
textures and global rhythms. Al Jewer is a specialist in Native
American flute while Andy Mitran handles synthesizers and percussion
in the evocative music of their new CD, TWO TREES (Laughing Cat
Records). These two musicians fill up the Echoes Living room
with more gear than some 8 piece ensembles who've played on the
show. We'll hear the haunting melodies of their music revealed
