Dance with the Anima
A mesmerizing 'film score' style album of dazzling old-school fusion, 60's cinematic themes, epic progressive rock melodies, gypsy jazz, dramatic classical moods and psychedelic guitar virtuosity skillfully composed to Marco Minnemann's live unedited 51 minute 'Normalizer 2' drum solo. At times the music sounds as if John Barry and Frank Zappa had collaborated on the surreal soundtrack to a richly orchestrated guitar adventure. Also featuring the musically dynamic and spellbinding playing of keyboard virtuoso Lalle Larsson (Karmakanic, Agents Of Mercy) who joins Phi as a fellow soloist and star performer of challenging musical parts. Together with the stellar contributions of Ola Olsson (trumpet & flugelhorn), Amandine Ferrari (choral vocals) and Gary Compton (harmonica), the resulting music has the depth, quality and feel of a timeless soundtrack album. This CD is part of Marco Minnemann's Normalizer 2 series of releases which also includes albums by Mike Keneally, Trey Gunn, Alex Machacek, Jason Sadites, John Czajkowski Mario Brinkmann & Marco himself. Each album features the same unedited drum tracks but with totally different music composed and recorded over the top!
