Suoni Per Il Popolo is taking over Montreal this month, and we’ve got a handful of tickets to give away. Interested?? First tickets available are for MV & EE, Casa del Popolo, June 8th. We’ve got one pair we’d love you to have!
Perusing CKUT’s enormous library for hidden gems is one of our favourite pastimes here in the music department. Though I stumbled upon this record by chance it already seems to fill a gap I never knew existed. Recorded in 1975, Gateway’s first, self-titled record speaks volumes. Upon first listen the swirling sounds within immediately remind me of Pat Metheny’s early works with Bob Moses and Jaco Pastorius. Not surprising considering the artists involved and their various musical histories. John Abercrombie on guitar, Jack DeJohnette on drums, and last but not least Dave Holland on bass. Gateway (the album) is filled with surreal interweaving and dazzling textures; the trio seems to speak as one. Find yourself a copy if you dig!!
For those of you looking to see some live music in the next couple weeks here’s a run down of upcoming shows!! Mutek is taking over the next couple days, followed by Suoni Per Il Popolo for the month of June. Suoni will also be hosting June’s Montreal Sessions so keep checking in! This Friday don’t miss Cinema L’Amour’s album release show at Brasserie Beaubien! Good weather and musics all round!
