07.17.07: Tribute to ROBERT WYATT
"An enduring figure who came to prominence in the early days of the English art rock scene, Robert Wyatt has produced a significant body of work, both as the original drummer for art rockers Soft Machine and as a radical political singer/songwriter.......his solo career was built less around his abilities as a percussionist and more around his frail tenor voice, capable of breaking hearts with its falsetto range.........he has recorded some stunning music, full of wonder, possibility, and pure emotion, that remains undiscovered by many." -John Dougan (www.allmusic.com)
Tonight we will explore the many sides to Robert Wyatt's 40 years worth of recordings. From his early recordings with the Soft Machine to solo albums from the last 30+ years to collaborations with everyone from Jimi Hendrix to Bjork, he is a truly enigmatic force and one of the greats.
