A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH MICHAEL GULEZIAN Michael Gulezian is from the post Leo Kottke/John Fahey generation
of finger-style guitarists who play their instrument like a cross
between percussion and piano. Gulezian was actually a protege
of the late Fahey and recorded his first album for Fahey's Takoma
label in 1982. That album was re-issued last year on CD and now
Gulezian has a new recording, LANGUAGE OF THE FLAME. It's a virtuoso,
some might say, pyrotechnic tour-de force of extended acoustic
techniques. Gulezian comes into the Echoes living room to play
his music live.
AUTUMNS CHILD: GLOBAL NATIVE MUSIC Mark Holland isn't Native American, but he's mastered the
Native American flute. Over the course of several albums with
his group, Autumn's Child, he's been developing a chamber fusion
sound mixing percussion instruments from Africa and the Middle
East along with cello and guitar. Autumn's Child's latest CD,
PROGRESSIVE WORLD (Cedar 'n' Sage), is the finest exposition of
their music to date and placed in the Top 15 of Echoes' Listener
Poll for 2002. Mark Holland reveals the map of his sound.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH BARBARA HIGBIE Barbara Higbie was the best pianist on Windham Hill who wasn't
a solo pianist, until now. Years after recording influential,
critically acclaimed albums on Windham Hill Records with Darol
Anger and Montreux, as well as her solo singer-songwriter debut,
Barbara Higbie has found her inner solo pianist. In 2001 she
released her first solo album, VARIATIONS ON A HAPPY ENDING (Slowbaby).
In her East Bay home, Higbie plays music from HAPPY ENDING and
reworks some earlier tunes for solo piano.
