Lettuce Prey (Musea Records) by David Fabris

Editor's Comments

In the right hands the bandoneon is a sacred instrument, Astor Piazzola has few rivals. This is a rock interpretation of a Piazzola Tango by Dave 'Knife' Fabris.

About the track

From Astor Piazzolla's classic Tango Zero Hour album, Knife updates the arrangement for guitars, bass, and drums...Lettuce Prey is music that is supported equally by the three legs of Rock, Jazz and Classical. It has the guts and glory of rock heroes like Jimi Hendrix (whose tune, Angel, is featured as a guitar solo on this CD). It possesses the surprise and intrigue of Jazz improvisation (like Ornette Coleman's Sadness - presented here in a jazz quintet format). Lastly, it exudes the intricacy and depth of contemporary Classical music - Ives, Prokofiev, and Khatchaturian are among the composers presented here. But the intent is for the styles to coalesce...that the heavy guitar bass and drum treatment of Ginastera's String Quartet No. 2, for example, maintains the sublimation of the original while making the listener pump their fist in the air!
