MCGILL-MANRING-STEVENS: The PLAINTIFF PRESENTS A CASE FOR FUSION They sound like a law firm and in certain ways they are arguing
a case for fusion. Bay Area bassist Michael Manring, and guitarist
Scott McGill and drummer Vic Stevens, both from Philadelphia,
create a music born in the sound of the Mahavishnu Orchestra,
Chick Corea and Miles Davis, a freewheeling brand of pyrotechnic
compositions and free improvisations. Recently, they released
their second CD as the trio, McGill-Manring-Stevens called CONTROLLED
BY RADAR (Free Electric Sound). A double CD, one disc is electric
and the other disc is acoustic. We gather these three virtuosi
together to make their case in the Court of Echoes.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH KAKI KING Kaki King is a frighteningly virtuosic and independent guitar
player from Brooklyn who is picking up the extended techniques
of Preston Reed and Michael Hedges and finding her own, distinctive
voice. Though only 23 years old and dwarfed by her guitar, she
coaxes a dynamic range of sound from her instrument heard on her
debut album, EVERYBODY LOVES YOU (Velour Records). Kaki enters
the Echoes living room where she plays music from her album, a
new song and talks about a music journey fm New York subways to
ECHOES RE-MIXED We hear music transformed on Echoes Re-mixed. From Sami singers
to minimalist composers music is sliced, diced, fractured and
reconstituted in new ways. Echoes explores the art of the re-mix
with original music including Madredeus, Steve Reich, and Gigi,
and re-calibrations by Bill Laswell, Coldcut, Aphex Twin and more.
