February 24, the Adrian Belew Trio played a fabulous show at the Paradox club in Tilburg (NL).
Next to Adrian, the band featured Julie Slick on bass and Tobias Ralph on drums and they rocked.

After the concert, I picked up Julie Slick's "Terroir" album. To be honest, I didn't even know that Julie had released a solo album. Anyway, I'm glad that I brought a copy home. Actually, I'm very glad that I brought a copy home.
The album is a sort of compilation of different tracks in different settings. Almost every track has a completely different line-up. The nice thing about this is that you get a lot of variety. It's not just different pieces, there's also the different guests adding their own particular sound to the compositions.

"Terroir" is a fine album and the title is well chosen. You get an insight into Julie Slick's musical world (and it's a beautiful one).
The list of the musicians that participated to "Terroir" is quite exceptional: David Torn, Pat Mastelotto, Eric Slick, Robbie 'Seahag' Mangano, Marco Minnemann, Adrian Belew, ...

Instrumental, contemporary progressive rock.
I love it.
Essential food for melomaniacs !!

"Terroir" is Julie's second solo album.

  1. Her first (untitled) solo album is also great -- as are her recent albums with Marco Machera under the band name EchoTest.
