Notes & Reviews:
Here we have another remarkable recording by the quirky Oregon composer/performer Richard Crandell., whose first delightful CD for Tzadik 'Mbira Magic' hit several Best Ten lists for 2004. Adapting and retuning traditional Shona instruments, Crandell draws upon the work of Steve Reich, Terry Riley and John Fahey to create a hypnotic minimalist world through the use of repetition, variation and phrasing. Charming and original, this is beautiful and subtle music from a recently rediscovered maverick composer out of the early days of west coast minimalism.
