[Longhorn Review] Obsolete systems

Material Type: All, music — Tags: electronic music, falstaffpicks — Posted on September 2, 2008, 11:31 am

By: Laurie Spiegel

"When it was new, each of these music systems, now long obsolete, was state of
the art, visionary, radically new and so revolutionary that it required extended
explanations in response to common questions such as 'Why would anyone ever want to
do that?' " -Laurie Spiegel

St. Giles Cripplegate

[Longhorn Review] St. Giles Cripplegate

Material Type: All, music — Tags: falstaffpicks, orchestral — Posted on August 3, 2008, 8:28 am

By: Jack Nitzsche

Here is Jack Nitzsche's massive and beautiful orchestral work that brilliantly
captures what's compelling about the classical avant garde in the 20th century. Most
will recognize Nitzsche's name for his work scoring films like "One Flew Over the
Cuckoo's Nest" and "Performance" as well as arranging for Phil Spector, Stevie
Wonder, Neil Young, and pretty much everyone else too.

Finally we have a good selection of Sun Ra material.  This is one of my
favorites.  Eloquent and odd jazz that's deeply satisfying

Solo piano [sound recording] / Gonzales

[Longhorn Review] Solo piano [sound recording] / Gonzales

Material Type: All, music — Tags: falstaffpicks, piano — Posted on November 1, 2007, 12:08 pm

By: Gonzales

A surprising disc coming from this South American MC. Sounding something like an
expert mixing of Keith Jarrett and Erik Satie (in his more imaginative stylings),
Gonzales has made a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable album of piano sketches that
are at turns elegiac, ecstatic, comatose. The sound quality of the recording leaves
something to be desired (expect a small amount of background noise and damage if you
turn it up) but it also adds its fair share of charm to the recording, coming across
as a work of private, brilliant impulse. Odd, but a CD to play again and
again.

Porgy and Bess

[Longhorn Review] Porgy and Bess

Material Type: All, music — Tags: falstaffpicks, Gershwin, Music — Posted on September 26, 2007, 11:55 am

By: George Gershwin

I'd like to recommend our newest Gershwin CD, "Porgy and Bess." Gershwin is
always a classic, and that he wrote an opera when he did with this much style makes
this worth a listen.
