Mary Fahl Live and the Jan Hammer Echoes InterviewThis Weekend on Echoes.
Hear songs you’ve heard before, performed live by Mary Fahl. The immaculate voice of the 90s band October Project has a new solo album covering songs from her youth as a child of the 60s, including tracks by The Moody Blues, Judy Collins and Pink Floyd. It’s called I Can’t Get It Out of My Head. It will be in yours when she plays live with her full band on Echoes.
Jan Hammer came to renown as the keyboardist with the fusion group, The Mahavishnu Orchestra. He went on to a string of solo albums and collaborations with artists like Jeff Beck, John Abercrombie, Neil Schon of Journey, and Al Di Meola. Then in 1984, he began composing the score for TV’s Miami Vice, one of the signature shows and themes of the 1980s. He won several Grammy awards, got Emmy nominations that he probably should have won and was featured on the covers of Keyboard Magazine and others. It was a long journey for the Czechoslovakian born and raised keyboardist, who started out as a jazz musician. But for most of this millennium, the keyboardist has been silent. But Jan Hammer is back with a new solo record, Seasons Pt 2. We talked to him in 2018 when Seasons Pt.1 was released. We revisit that interview as Jan Hammer casts back on his long and influential career on Echoes.
