Vinyl Vault: "M"

Aug 24, 2017

This week the Vinyl Vault remembers guitarist John Abercrombie who passed away on August 22. We’ll hear several cuts from his 1980 ECM release “M.” The album features Richard Beirach on piano, George Mraz on bass and Peter Donald on drums. The album has that ethereal ECM feel the Abercrombie helped pioneer as well as some straight ahead playing.

This week only, the Vinyl Vault moves to Monday with a 1972 album by flautist Tim Weisberg, “Hurtwood Edge.” The album was his second on A&M Records and has never been released on compact disc. The album features a compact quintet all the way up to a good sized orchestra with players like Bud Shank, Larry Carlton, Max Bennett, David Spinoza, Jim Gordon and many more.

This week the Vinyl Vault features the world beat sound of Bernie Krause’s “Citadels of Mystery.” Recorded in 1975 and released in 1979, it includes the “Machu Picchu Suite” as well as music inspired by Stonehenge. Krause was part of the ground breaking duo of Beaver & Krause which introduced the synthesizer to modern music. After Paul Beaver’s death in 1975, Krause became interested in “bioacoustics” and has since recorded thousands of hours in the natural environment.

“Free in America” by vocalist and keyboard man Ben Sidran is the featured album on this week’s Vinyl Vault. The album was released in 1976, just in time for America’s Bicentennial. Backing musicians include David “Fathead” Newman, the Brecker Brothers, Woody Shaw, Phil Upchurch and more. It also includes the first recorded version of Billy Joel’s “New York State of Mind.” Check out the Vinyl Vault with host Geoff Anderson on "The Night Beat", Tuesday, August 1 at 8:30pm on KUVO/
