Episode 060 - feat. Edgar Gabriel's String Fusion, Willard Morris, Twisted Ph8, Mark Allender

Edgar Gabriel's String Fusion - "Blue 7"
Willard Morris - "Teen Town"
Twisted Ph8 - "Theft at Whitley Bay"
Mark Allender - "The Last Supper"

Hello everyone,

This show comes to you during the not-so-well reported-in-the-national-press Ohio Blizzard of March 2008. Thank god for the internet's all's I gots to say - else I'd be bored outta my mind!

I am also pleased to report that the show makes an appearance in the Spring 2008 issue of Fiddler Magazine - on newsstands now!

Leading the charge this time thru is jazz violinist Edgar Gabriel and his group String Fusion. This seven-piece group has a clear, clean sound that dips into different styles at every turn. They are currently supporting their cleverly-titled disc Not Radio Material from which this cut is taken.

Willard Morris returns to the show with a Bowed Radio exlclusive: a viola-and-bass arrangement of the Jaco Pastorius "Teen Town." His arrangement pretty well speaks for itself. Incredible.

Twisted Ph8 is the husband and wife team of Jason and Christine Labore, with Jason on a six-string Viper violin and Christine on vocals. Jason is also a touring member of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra and is a prolific performer and teacher in northern New Hampshire.

Closing out the show is a track from my own solo recording Battery - a cover of Larry Norman's "The Last Supper." Back in about 1996, I was asked to contribute a piece for a Larry Norman tribute album that never materialized. It is presented here as a memoriam; Larry Norman passed away on February 24, 2008.

Your experience of Bowed Radio is made possible in part by Nepenthe Music and Publishing, neo-expressionism for the 21st century, featuring the works of Dwight Ashley, Tim Story, and Hans Joachim Roedelius. Online at .
