new album « comicopera » out now on Domino records.
finkielkraut exclusive* : robert gives us his current playlist : « Humans have been making music for thousands and thousands of years. I don’t suppose it gets better or worse, just….different. Like people. Anyway, the world of marketed and recorded music is just one strand, In all corners of the world there are still people playing and singing and dancing to the exciting variety of scales and rhythms and harmonic structures they have inherited. All still the music of today. For music available on records, I recommend:
Bud Powell – ‘Parisian Thoroughfares’
The Swingle Singers – ‘Keyboard Classics’
Bridget St John – ‘Jumblequeen’
Monica Vasconcelos – ‘hih ‘
Hélène La Barrière – ‘Les temps changent’
Lo’jo – ‘Bohème de Cristal’, ‘Bazar Savant’
Pietra Montecorvino – ‘Napoli Mediterranea’
Rachel Unthank and the Winterset – The Bairns
