JAN GARBAREK: IN PRAISE OF DREAMS IN PRAISE OF DREAMS is Norwegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek's
latest foray into a music that reaches for the mystical. Garbarek
is noted for his more "purely" jazz work with George
Russell and Keith Jarrett, but he's always had a more atmospheric
sensibility, often recording albums on which he drops the conventional
jazz combo. That's the case with IN PRAISE OF DREAMS, an album
of haunting moods and searing melodies on which Garbarek is joined
by violist Kim Kashkashian and drummer Manu Katché. Rich
in texture and searching solos, In Praise Of Dreams awakens on
the Echoes soundscape as our October CD of the Month.
KAKI KING'S STRINGS Her guitar is almost bigger than she is, but Kaki King makes
you forget her size when she starts playing her six strings.
She created a sensation last year with her debut album, EVERYBODY
LOVES YOU (Velour). She returns with a new CD, LEGS TO MAKE US
LONGER (Epic), that shows an evolution in her already formidable
skills. Kaki King talks about big changes in her music in a short
time, and reveals more of her eclectic background which includes
electric guitar and lap steel guitar.
BLOW UP HOLLYWOOD: CHAMBER ROCK SOUNDTRACKS 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. They
surround deeply personal and intimate songs, often about death,
with cellos and electronic effects for a haunting sound. Their
recent album, FAKE, is already garnering critical hosannas.
We talk to the primary members of Blow Up Hollywood about their
chamber rock reveries.
