TREY ANASTASIO: A PHISH IN CLASSICAL WATERS Phish is the highly regarded and willfully eclectic jam band
from Vermont that has taken on Grateful Dead-like allegiance from
their fans. A band that is usually plugged in and often improvising,
Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio shows another side to their sound
with his solo album, Seis de Mayo (Elektra). Anastasio creates
a suite of works scored for chamber orchestra, string quartet,
brass band and occasionally, some acoustic guitar. Many of these
tunes have been played by Phish, but Anastasio says their roots
are in his pre-Phish classical studies. Trey Anastasio talks about
swimming in classical waters on Echoes.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH VINCE REDHOUSE 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 settings. Vince Redhouse
talks about his personal approach to the Native American flute
and a Native vision of spirituality.
A LIVING ROOM CONCERT WITH IAN BODDY Veteran English synthesist Ian Boddy crosses the pond to inaugurate
the new Echoes living room. In the summer of 2003, Ian appeared
on Echoes as part of Redshift when we recorded them in London.
This time, Ian comes in solo, plugs in his electronic rig and
fires up live renditions of music from his latest CD, CHIASMATA
EARTH DAY On Earth Day 2004, Echoes presents artists making music drawn
from nature. From the wind whistling across a reed or a musician
beating drums to the rising sun, nature has always been integral
to music. We celebrate that relationship on this Earth Day 2004.
We'll hear from artists like Paul Winter, Samite of Uganda, the
Grateful Dead's Mickey Hart, The Soundings of the Planet Ensemble,
Bernie Krause and Robert Rich, the Grooved Whales of Lisa Walker
and many more. The sound of the planet lives on in an Echoes Soundscape
on Earth Day 2004.
