One / A Coat Of Many Colours (CD)
Two CD set containing a pair of collaboration albums from legendary percussionist Bill Bruford. Back in 1999 before he was well-known, Pete Lockett toured with Bruford as Network of Sparks and they produced an inventive, culture-busting album called ONE. the group was a percussion quintet covering many of the disciplines from around the world, in which the Ghanaian and North Indian Dhol traditions rubbed shoulders with progressive jazz and electronics. the music on ONE is an authoritative guide to the glorious colors available from more sophisticated rhythmic cultures than our own western one, and several of its ideas were carried on into the recent World Drummers Ensemble. on dual-disc a COAT OF MANY COLOURS, four percussion masters, global leaders in their respective disciplines, come together for a highly-charged musical exchange; explosive, unpredictable, and unusual. Doudou Diaye Rose (Senagalese master of the sabar), Chad Wackerman, (Frank Zappa, Allan Holdsworth), Luis Conte (Madonna, Michael Jackson), and Bill Bruford (Yes, King Crimson, Earthworks), are known internationally as the World Drummers Ensemble. the music includes pieces from all members, but also from Switzerland via Pierre Favre, Turkey via the Harem Percussion Group, America via Max Roach, and there's even a re-working of King Crimson's B'Boom. This Dual Disc CD audio/ DVD documents over an hour of their ambitious programme from concerts in Amsterdam and Brussels, and includes a complimentary 15-minute DVD on the reverse side.
