CD van de week in Ongehoord: Anthony Geraci – Daydreams In Blue

Naast de vele (nieuwe muziek) die er langs komt bij Radio Duivenstraat in ONGEHOORD, nu ook elke week een album van de week.

In de week van 27 juli t/m 31 juli: Anthony Geraci – Daydreams In Blue

“This by far is the most exciting recording I’ve done under my own name,” Geraci says about the album sessions. “Having all these great musicians on the recording is a ‘Daydream’come true. And having Walter Trout on the song, ‘No One Hears My Prayers,’ is something that transcends beyond just a recorded track. Musicians supporting each other, willing to give themselves to others is something we should all aspire too.”

“Music- all kinds of music – defines my life; and many of my friends, whether they are musicians or fans,” he says. “Where do we retreat to when things just aren’t right? A song is where I go to. It could be a song by Muddy Waters, John Coltrane, ‘New World Symphony’ by Antonín Leopold Dvořák, or a Hank Williams tune – it’s all music. Or I go to my piano and just play. The compositions on Daydreams in Blue were written over about a year’s time, some only a few weeks before the recording session. I’m very sensitive as to who I may want to bring into the recording studio. I have a vision for each song and who I’d like to have play on it. Immediately after I wrote ‘No One Hears My Prayer,’ I thought of Walter Trout. We had done a few shows together recently and he graciously asked me to sit in with his great band a few times. But it was his sound, his spirit that made me want to ask him. Mike Welch has been my friend for a very long time, since the original House Of Blues was in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where I was part of the Blue Monday Band. He was in his early teens and was already (almost!) as good as he is today. Dennis Brennan is truly a roots music hero here in Boston – his vocals and harmonica playing captures the soul of a bluesman – straight from the heart. Check out his ‘Dead Man’s Shoes’composition.”

ONGEHOORD is te beluisteren op maandag van 17:00 tot 19:00 en op dinsdag t/m vrijdag van 17:00 tot 18:00 via
