Birds – Solo Electric

CD (Item 642890) Tektite, 2012 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.70 5

Weird and wild sounds from bassist Ingebrigt Haker Flaten – working here solo, but on an electric bass – with results that are very different from his playing on an acoustic version of the instrument! The tones are often quite noisy, and very offbeat – sometimes far from music, but wonderful in their sense of space and texture – really opening up a whole new side of Ingebrigt's talents, and moving him way past territory we know from other work! The set was recorded live in the studio, with one more Chicago concert performance – and titles include "Birds", "BP", "Shadow Hillside", "Two", "Lucia", and "Chicago". (Comes in a slim sleeve.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

All Of You
Capitol/PTG (Netherlands), 1984. New Copy
Lillo Thomas has a mighty nice vocal style here – one that's a bit high in the spectrum, and which works perfectly with the sweet keyboards in the grooves! Thomas takes the lyrics right up to the top of the mix – and floats them way high above the basslines, but still in a way that ... CD
