Re: essential loop recordings
Haven't gotten through all the messages, but here are a couple of looping
recordings no one has mentioned, that were a big influence on me:
Roger Miller - Maximum Electric Piano
In the late 1980s, Miller was using a rig consisting of a Yamaha
electric baby grand, an EH 16 second delay, an analog delay, a fuzz box,
a volume pedal, and Cage-style prepared piano techniques to pour insane
amounts of sound out into the world. I saw him do this live and was
never the same. This album, probably long out of print, captured the
essence of what he was doing.
Power Tools - Strange Meeting
Frisell, Melvin Gibbs, and Ronald Shannon Jackson, live to DAT.
Frisell's looping was more obvious then, which i think was a GOOD thing.
