CLARA & JEAN-LUC PONTY: RUNS IN THE FAMILY Jean-Luc Ponty is the world renowned French violinist who
was an icon of jazz-fusion in the 1970s and 80s. In addition
to stints with Frank Zappa, The Mahavishnu Orchestra and dozens
of his own recordings, he also had some children, among them,
pianist Clara Ponty. She's just released her first album in five
years. It's called MIRROR OF TRUTH (JLP Productions) and marks
the first time the father and daughter have recorded together.
We gather the two musicians together where they talk of a youthful
prodigy and a woman who is finding her own musical voice.
JEFF GREINKE: ACOUSTIC AMBIENCES Jeff Greinke has been a denizen of electronic ambient music
since the early 1980s when he released his first recording, CITIES
IN FOG, favoring slowed-down textures and elongated melodies.
He still leans towards that sound, but in recent years, since
moving to Tucson from Seattle, his music has been growing more
acoustic and overtly melodic. He's even cut two albums under
the moniker of Hana, with Sky Crys Mary singer Anisa Romero.
Prior to a concert in a church in Philadelphia, Greinke talks
about his new directions and recent albums, SOUNDTRACKS and WEATHER
FROM ANOTHER PLANET (FWD).
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH OTTMAR LIEBERT The pioneer of Nouveau Flamenco comes into the Echoes living
room, takes off his shoes, and plays live with his current incarnation
of Luna Negra. Hot on the heels of his first CD of all new music
in five years, LA SEMANA (SSR), Ottmar Liebert reveals in performance
why he's still the reigning master of the guitar- driven flamenco-hybrid
he created over a decade ago.
MARY YOUNGBLOOD: NATIVE FLUTE FUSIONS Mary Youngblood is a Native flute player born of Seminole
and Aleut descent raised in an adoptive anglo family. An imposing
women, she has a big flute tone that she's recorded from caverns
to studios, and she is the first flute player to win a Grammy
Award. That was for her album, BENEATH THE RAVEN MOON (SilverWave).
Now she has a new CD, FEED THE FIRE that includes a guest spot
from one of her early heroes. It's not R. Carlos Nakai, but Ian
Anderson from the British rock group, Jethro Tull. Mary Youngblood
talks about flute traditions and new directions.
