Sir Richard Bishop - Improvika


"The nine compositions of “Improvika” are influenced by folk music of all corners of the world with the music of India and the Middle East playing particularly prominent roles. This is not, however, post-modern pastiche or multicultural collage. Quite the contrary, it is something that synthesizes all these disparate elements into something wholly new. Bishop has a somewhat improvisational rhythmic language that is all his own as well as a compositional sense that (even if these pieces are, in fact, improvisations as the title might suggest) carries this album easily through its 45 minute running time." - Nick Hennies (Foxy Digitalis)

Hey Jizz:

I was sad to see you leave back in February, but it's great to see that you are back on the blogging scene. On your old blog, you linked to my blog Eclectic Grooves. I was wondering if you would be willing to add me back to your links. I have already added you to my "frequently visited" section of links.

Cheers, Kevin
