FEATURES FOR THE WEEK
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH MARK HOLLAND Mark Holland is the St. Louis-based virtuoso of the Native
American flute and the leader of the world fusion band, Autumn's
Child. Mark goes solo when he comes to the Echoes living room,
playing his Native American flutes and telling the stories behind
the songs of his new CD, FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS (Cedar 'n Sage),
an album inspired by the events of 9/11 and its aftermath.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH BLOW UP HOLLYWOOD Their name is certainly scary and threatening, but the music
of this New York-based art rock group ventures into regions of
dream pop, moody rock and evocative chamber instrumentals. Their
recent album, FAKE, is already garnering critical hosannas. Blow
Up Hollywood conjure up a special set for the Echoes soundscape
when the play live.
ADRIAN LEGG: CHURCH HYMNS AND FLAGELLATED GUITAR Adrian Legg is a guitarist's guitarist. As John Diliberto
wrote in the liner notes of Legg's new CD, INHERITANCE (Favored
Nations Acoustic), "Adrian Legg can bring you to tears with
the sweetest melancholy melody played out in a filigree of finger-picking
intricacy, leaving one gasping for air at the rarefied beauty
of it all. But he can just as easily pluck and twang in a virtuoso
display, bending notes in a drunkenly delirious slur of lines
that slip and slide like Jim Carey at a taffy pull." Legg
talks about his pan-roots approach to modern guitar playing.
ANJA LECHNER & VASILLIS TSABROPOULOS: MEETINGS WITH REMARKABLE
MUSIC In the 1970s, the motto of ECM Records was the most beautiful
sound next to silence. No one has fulfilled that motto more than
Anja Lechner and Vasillis Tsabropoulos with their album CHANTS,
HYMNS AND DANCES (ECM). Lechner is the German cellist with the
Rosamunde Quartet and Greek born Tsabropoulos has several jazz
trio albums out. On their new album, they adapt the music of Armenian
mystic G.I. Gurdjieff and Thomas de Hartmann in a series
