Μια από τις μυθικές μουσικές φυσιογνωμίες που έχουν γεννηθεί αυτό το μήνα, ο συνθέτης, δεξιοτέχνης διάφορων οργάνων και παραγωγός Al Kooper, είναι διάσημος για τις συνεργασίες – συμμετοχές του σε γκρουπ [Dylan, Stones, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blood Sweat & Tears, …] και για μια σειρά ηχογραφήσεων ως leader, όπως το κλασικό Super Session του 1968, με τους κιθαρίστες Mike Bloomfield, Stephen Stills.
Τον ακούμε να σαρώνει το keyboard σε ένα εκτυφλωτικό σόλο, ακολουθούμενος από τον MB.

One of the mythical music figures born this month, the composer, multi-instrumentalist and producer Al Kooper, is famous for his collaborations – participations [Dylan, Stones, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blood Sweat & Tears, …] and for a series of recordings as leader, such as the classic Super Session, released in 1968, with guitarists Mike Bloomfield, Stephen Stills.
We hear him sweeping the keyboard on a dazzling solo, followed by MB.

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
