This Island Earth
Sunday August 15th, 2010 with Alnoor Allidina
Warm Music for a Rainy Sunday

Along with the usual assortment of Earthling musicians, Alnoor Allidina presents a profile of American musician and ethnomusicologist Lloyd Miller, who very recently released a disc featuring the Heliocentrics. Or, maybe they released a disc featuring him. Either way, it sounds great!
In the first hour we start with some desert blues, move into West Africa and finish in the Middle East.

The second hour is dedicated to the music of Lloyd Miller. In the sixties, he fused jazz and "oriental" music, and recently he released an album with the Heliocentrics that features sounds from the Middle East and Indonesia.

In the final hour, we continue with music from Bali and eventually end up listening to seventies Miles Davis. By the way, only a couple of weeks left if you want to check out the Miles Davis exhibition at the Montreal Museum of Fine Art. Well worth a trip to Montreal!
