BRIAN ENO: AMBIENT VOCALS Although Brian Eno is esteemed as the Godfather of ambient
music, he began by crafting witty, knotty and idiosyncratic songs,
first with Roxy Music and then on solo albums like HERE COME THE

creating elongated melodies and slowly evolving orchestrations.
In the studios of Spotted Peccary Records, Jon Jenkins takes
us inside his dream orchestra.
