Invoking the Muse

Performers Layne Redmond

Sounds True | July 20, 2004 | Compact Disc

Not yet rated | write a review
Personnel: Layne Redmond (vocals, frame drum, bells); Laurel Mass', Ruth Cunningham (vocals); Vicki Richards (violin); Steve Gorn (bansuri); Tommy Brunjes (frame drum, percussion).
Layne Redmond has been exploring ancient Mediterranean music and ceremonial drumming for many years, and is considered one of the most innovative living percussionists. Adopting the frame drum as her drum of choice, her contributions to Glen Velez's first two albums and the formation of her own group of drummers, A Mob of Angels, established her as a master percussionist. INVOKING THE MUSE presents Redmond in a much more album oriented light then previous efforts, as she further develops her own polyrhythmic compositions. "Radiant Pleasure" and the "Moons Lament" offer haunting and ethereal vocals by Laurel Masse and Ruth Cunningham. The bansuri, a beautiful North Indian flute is found on most of the album. It is on the track, "The Proclaimer," that Redmond really emerges. Her impossible finger rolls command the full reaches of the frame drum's resonance. The steady rhythm of INVOKING THE MUSE has a bass that gets deep down to a very tribal essence that is exquisitely realized.
