The fourth of Motorpsycho’s expanded archival sets revisits 1997’s Angels and Daemons at Play – a chronological and developmental follow-on from the earlier Blissard set…
Reissue with the latest remastering and the original cover artwork. Comes with a description written in Japanese. Ferdinand Povel's one of those players we never seem to get enough of – a tenorist who may not be one of the bigger stars on the European scene, but one who always finds a way to serve up something special! Povel's got a nice edge in his horn at times – a mode that's always inside, but often sharply spoken – even when he's going for some mellower moments too – a bit of old school bite in the way he approaches the reed, maybe – and a definite sense of attack that really comes on when he's in a more swinging mode! The group here has some great guitar from Wim Overgaauw, whose ringing tones bring a bright balance between Povel's horn and the piano of Frans Elsen – and the rest of the group features Victor Kaihatu on bass and Ruud Pronk on drums.
After 3 years of a strong return to the "Master & M" Lizard prepared for their fans another position - presented "little yellow, a little more white." The music on the album is dominated by autumn atmosphere, not only in the title closely associating the color of autumn leaves. The band recorded the album in autumn, during the preparations for the jubilee concerts and is also reflected in the shape and content of the material presented.
2016 release from the former Japan, Rain Tree Crow and Dalis Car bassist, his seventh solo album, Three Part Species, illustrates more than any other, how completely in command of musical composition he has become. A mixture of so many diverse types of music that, somehow never, even for a second, sound confused in direction. It's impossible with each piece to predict which genre will come next, as the listener is guided through Mick Karn's unique world. At times, there are elements of Motown rhythms and gospel choirs, classical arrangements and Rock guitars, passing through Hip Hop and Jazz Fusion, ethnic traditions and Pop songs.
