A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH CHRISTOPHER O'RILEY 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 on his new album, he plays the music of Radiohead, the critically
acclaimed English art rock group. O'Riley started playing this
music on piano during breaks on FROM THE TOP and wound up with
an album's worth of material now called TRUE LOVE WAITS: CHRISTOPHER
O'RILEY PLAYS THE MUSIC OF RADIO HEAD (Sony Classical). Christopher
comes into the Echoes Living Room to play live.
KAKI KING: HER WAY OR THE SUBWAY Kaki King began her career playing on New York City subway
stops. Now this frighteningly virtuoso and independent guitar
player from Brooklyn has a new, critically acclaimed CD called
EVERYBODY LOVES YOU (Velour Records). She's adapted the extended
techniques of Preston Reed and Michael Hedges and discovered her
own distinctive voice. Kaki talks about a music journey from New
York subways to concert stages.
ECHOES JULY CD OF THE MONTH
ONE ALTERNATIVE-PENDULUM One Alternative has been a fixture on Echoes since we debuted
in 1989. And at that point they'd already been around for six
years. On their latest CD, they continue to hone their acoustic
chamber fusion sound, weaving two acoustic guitars along with
oboe/English horn. One Alternative swings on rhythms that phase
seamlessly from classical to jazz, draped across the intricate
finger-picking of their guitars and Jill Haley's refined, lyrical
oboe playing. We'll feature music from this CD on a special Echoes.
JASON RUBENSTEIN: SOUNDINGS AT 3AM Jason Rubenstein is a journeyman musician who has recorded
under his own name and as 3AM. Working out of a bedroom studio
in his apartment, Jason mixes a jazz musician's sense of improvisation
with and electronic composers sense of sound painting. His music
has been picked up by TV shows like ER, but you're unlikely to
find his records. He's recorded on small labels and his most ambitious
release, DISTANT EARLY WARNING by 3AM is only an MP3. We travel
to the home of Jason Rubenstein and hear about his music between
morning and night.
