Cities of the Heart – Jack Bruce

November 1993 marked a very special occasion. Jack decided to celebrate his 50th birthday with two unique live concerts, which resulted in the recording of this unique event. Helping Jack to make the most of the occasion were a whole host of musical heavyweights including Gary Moore, Ginger Baker, Simon Phillips, Bernie Worrell, Dick Heckstall-Smith, Clem Clempson, Maggie Reilly and many more. Musically the concerts featured many treats including all time classics such as “Sunshine Of Your Love”, through to contemporary material like “Ships In The Night”.

Tripping Over God – David Torn

Guitarist David Torn has been re-ordering the edges of rock, jazz & alien world music ever since he heard Hendrix’s “burning wall of voodoo”. In 1994, he was lauded as “Best Experimental Guitarist” by Guitar Player Magazine Reader’s Poll. Natural development has now led to his exploration of solo recording/ performance: ‘Tripping Over God’ is David’s first foray into this territory. He worked alone in his studio, building brooding & complex moods, implausibly lush & screaming melodies, tying modern angst together with odd song forms, arching soundscapes and classic blues gone wrong.

The Tooth Mother – Mick Karn

Recorded during November/December 1994, “The Tooth Mother” is Mick Karn’s second solo outing for CMP. Written, arranged and produced by Mick, “The Tooth Mother” contains a gamut of musical styles and influences (not least of which is his fascination with Middle Eastern music) skillfully woven together to create an album of disturbing beauty. He is joined by long-term collaborator David Torn on guitars and Gavin Harrison on drums, percussion and computer programming.

3 Pound Universe – Wes Martin

As a singer, songwriter, guitarist and composer, Wes played bass in a trio called JoshoMisho and with the New Bohemians as rhythm guitarist, providing mostly sheets and backdrops of sound for the bands more percussive tones. He was exposed to hundreds of films by visionary filmmakers whose images and accompanying soundtracks became the basis and filter for how Wes would perceive music: as a visual medium. In his own words Wes Martin describes 3 Pound Universe “as a door that I have finally closed on a mostly painful part that leaves me standing outside in a world in which with a newly found independence I must navigate alone.”

Monkjack – Jack Bruce

`Monkjack’ provides the opportunity to really hear the full splendour of Jack’s distinctive, colourful voice and compositional talents. The original singer and composer of such modern-day masterpieces as `Sunshine Of Your Love’ and ‘White Room’, now presents him­self at the grand piano singing a clutch of songs, accompanied by Bernie Worrell of Funkadelic fame, on Hammond organ. As well as new songs which feature lyrics by maverick New Yorker, Kip Hanrahan, Jack also performs three duets with Bernie and some revivals of songs from ‘Songs For A Tailor’ and ‘Harmony Row’, much loved albums from the period immediately following ‘Cream’.

Synaesthesia – Andy Summers

This place where light, colour, music, mysticism and spirituality meet, has a name. Synaesthesia. This phenomenon has a long history, dating back to the 12th century poems of Rumi and perhaps even beyond.There have been many attempts to unders tand and explain this phenomenon. Suffice to say that it is a condition to which artists and musicians continually attempt to return in which ever way their period permits.

What Means Solid, Traveller? – David Torn

David Torn takes the electric guitar to previously unimagined dimensions. From the tekkno-esque ‘Spell Breaks With The Weather’ through sick Mississippi slide deconstructions like ‘Tiny Burns A Bridge’ and ‘In The Sand Of This Day’ to the fizzing ambiance of ‘Elsewhere, Now Than Waving’ Torn is in his highest evolutionary form.
