- sound liberation: days
(2014, cd, usa, naxos, composers concordance comcon0013)
As you should know, Sound Liberation performs the music of Gene Pritsker, a composer without musical boundaries. Gene Pritsker blends soulful rhythm 'n blues with chamber music strings and hip-hop rhymes. And he might add some bop jazz guitar lines on the spot.
"Days" collects compositions from different projects. There's music from the "Money" hip-hop-chamber opera, there's remixe of previously released songs, some hip-hop jams based on orchestral samples, and even a couple of live concert recordings.
My favourite track is 'What Shall I Do, a beautiful song that features the supeb voice of Chanda Rule, accompanied by a string quartet and a guitar.
Worth checking out.
Here's the poppy 'Breath':
