March CD of the MonthL Johnson & Keaggy's Ravenna
This weekend on Echoes, the March CD of the Month is Jeff Johnson and Phil Keaggy‘s latest pastoral opus, Ravenna. Inspired by the mosaics of this Italian town, they create musical mosaics, lacing together keyboards, guitars and more. Read John Diliberto’s review here.
Weekend listeners may also hear the many moods of Thievery Corporation. In 2020, Thievery Corporation released their Symphonik album with orchestral renditions of some of their best-known songs, and Eric Hilton, one half of the duo, released a pair of ambient lounge music recordings, The Impossible Silence and Infinite Everywhere, with a third imminent. We put together a 2020 interview with Hilton and a 2010 interview with Garza, about a music born in dub and music sampling.
