Another installment of the impeccable Slack Key Guitar Masters series on Dancing Cat, this album features Ozzie Kotani, a former student of the great Sonny Chillingworth and a topnotch performer in his own right. With a picking style that rings vaguely of classical guitar (though according to Kotani it definitely isn't), he plunges through a number of standards and original compositions for the slack key guitar. His playing works itself through an alternating bass that comes and goes throughout the backing of the songs, and an ability to express his emotions through the music. Cases in point: "Kani Kipaipai" (the sound of inspiration), dedicated to Chillingworth, is a higher-tempo piece with fewer of the occasional bitter tunings that the strings can emit, while "Ku'u Lei Poine'le" is a farewell for a pair of friends who had passed on, which conveys much more grief through the tunings, the tempo, and the picking styles. Kotani is definitely an expressive figure in the music -- more so than some others. For fans of slack key, the name may already be known from his work with Chillingworth and others. For newcomers to the genre though, something with more vocal additions (perhaps Cyril Pahinui or Ray Kane) might be in order, even from the same series on Dancing Cat.

Tropicália: the Story of a Brazilian Revolution

In the late 1960s, a group of young Brazilian artists rose up against the ruling military junta by fusing local popular music, rock and avant-garde. Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Os Mutantes and their friends invented tropicália, one of the most original musical adventures of the 20th century.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.

Picasso, when painting meets music

Picasso's modernist genius swiftly stretched beyond the pictorial and spread into music and dance, two art forms with which the Spanish painter always maintained a close relationship, to the point of influencing composer friends he met along the way.
