ECHOES JANUARY CD OF THE MONTH/SUZANNE TENG'S MILES BEYOND After several year's wait, flute player Suzanne Teng returns
with a follow up to her imposing solo debut, Mystic Journey.
Miles Beyond picks up on the global rhythms and world flutes that
made her debut so compelling. The core of the album is Teng
and percussionist Gilbert Levy, playing flutes and hand drums
from India, Africa, Eygpt, and Persia. Their melodies and rhythms
spiral off each other in desert arabesques. Miles Beyond is a
meticulously composed and arranged work with oud, string bass,
keyboards and guitar fleshing out the sound in a music that uses
traditional sounds for a new, pan-global music. Whether playing
ocarina, Turkish ney, Indian bamboo flutes or the Balinese suling,
she's a master pulling melodies out of the air and bending them
in sensual, calligraphic designs. Miles Beyond is an auspicious
first CD of the Month for 2004.
VINCE REDHOUSE: IN THE REDHOUSE OF THE LORD Vince Redhouse is an Arizona based musician and is one of
six music siblings in the Redhouse clan that includes singer/bassist
Mary Redhouse. A one-time evangelical preacher, Vince Redhouse
brings Native themes to Christian spirituals, turning them through
his Native flute in sensitive ensemble setting. Vince Redhouse
talks about his personal approach to the Native American flute
and a Native vision of spirituality.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH JAIRAMJI Jairamji is Charlie Roscoe and early in 2003 he released Kindred
Spirits (Dakini), an album of entrancing ambient-ethno music.
Although he's a gifted guitar player and had live Native flute
performed by Andreas Kornevall, it's an album that was largely
constructed in the studio and on computers. So imagine our surprise
when we visited Charlie Roscoe on a farm in the English countryside
outside of Bristol and he was set up to play live on Echoes, with
not a computer or synthesizer in sight. Instead, Roscoe and Kornevall
created a set of gorgeous new pastoral works for acoustic guitar
and Native flutes.
PSYCHETROPIC: ARIZONA AMBIENCES As Psychetropic, Todd Fletcher takes the hunt for new sounds
to an extreme, throwing away his synthesizer settings after finishing
each song. This search for unexpected sonic textures has resulted
in recordings that range from lush world music simulations to
dance music for the empty desert. He distributes his music in
tiny batches on his own Microrelease label.
