2CDs SPECIAL PRICE
|This double CD, the third release from Johan Berke w/Upstairs Five, Eastern Scene in Grey Minor, sees composer/guitarist Johan Berke and the musicians further explore areas present on the earlier releases with the same group: Upstairs Five (2005) and The Cactus Suite (2006).|
There's the tightly arranged ensemble work on the more melodic tunes, sort of "in the tradition", then there's the free improvising within a larger framework of structure and there's the extended suite and the short pieces which hints on European Contemporary Classical with, this time around, an undefined flavour of the East.
As on the earlier CD:s the group is sometimes augmented by Jan Eriksson on Pedal & Lap Steel. This CD sees him get more room as soloist than the previous ones.
Also present, as on The Cactus Suite, is electric/experimental guitarist Barry Cleveland, who has provided a couple of atmospherical soundscapes for the title track.
