LORI CARSON: SONGS THAT WHISPER
Lori Carson has released several albums in what might be called
the conventional singer-songwriter mode, but on her new CD, THE
FINEST THING (Meta Records) she heads into ambient terrain with
songs that whisper and instrumentals that recall Brian Eno-style
ambiences. Carson travels down from her Long Island home to talk
about her introspective music, recorded right in her home.
OTTMAR LIEBERT: A DAY IN THE WEEK
Ottmar Liebert made a career change a few years ago. After more
than a decade on major labels, the German-born, Sante Fe-based
musician struck out on his own, hoping to capitalize on the internet
download phenomenon. It hasn't quite worked out the way he anticipated,
but that hasn't stopped him from recording his finest CD in a
while, LA SEMANA (SSR). Ottmar strips down his sound to simple
percussion and guitar, but then creates amorphous, evocative edges
through electronic processing. Ottmar Liebert talks about his
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH CLARA & JEAN-LUC PONTY
Jean-Luc Ponty is the legendary French jazz violinist. Pianist
Clara Ponty is his daughter. The two recently recorded together
for the first time on Clara Ponty's MIRROR OF TRUTH (JLP Productions).
We gather them in the Echoes Living Room where they play the
delicate, romantic, classic-tinged themes of Clara Ponty's music
in a pair of duets and some Clara Ponty piano solos.
JAI UTTAL, BEN LEINBACH & MANOSE: YOGA JOYS & OTHER DELIGHTS
Jai Uttal is a pioneer of world fusion whose first album, FOOTPRINTS,
set a standard for east-west fusion when it was released in 1991.
Since then, the San Francisco based musician has played rave-up
jam band east west music with his Pagan Love Orchestra and more
meditative sounds based on his Kirtan singing of Hindi mantras.
Recently he's been working with multi-instrumentalist Ben Leinbach
and Nepalese flute player Manose. They have a CD called MUSIC
FOR YOGA AND OTHER JOYS. Jai Uttal, Ben Leinbach and Manose talk
about yoga trance and dance.
AN ECHOES HALLOWEEN

the dark side of the Echoes soundscape to bring you atmospheres
and chills for Halloween.
