Lineage

February 1st, 2012

This is one of the best albums I have heard in awhile. It takes a second for you to realize how serious Zach Saginaw is about his art. After listening to this masterpiece 3-4 times I have read his Ghostly bio and understood where this extremely rich output comes from. ..”Zach records under the name Shigeto. It’s his middle name; it’s also his grandfather’s name, a tribute to the Japanese branch of Zach’s family tree. Shigeto also means “to grow bigger”—appropriate, given Zach’s premature birth-weight of less than a pound. Today, Shigeto stands for Zach’s vividly beautiful electronic music. Beat-driven but given to richly textured sound design. Zach’s father spoon-fed him old Motown and jazz records by the crateload. Zach picked up the drums at an early age, spending much of his childhood playing in the Detroit/Ann Arbor music scene. After nearly flunking out of high school—save for his music studies—Zach spent three years studying jazz at the New School in NYC and three more in London, where he began woodshedding, obsessed with learning electronic production. Soon enough, beats materialized, Zach moved to Brooklyn and took up the name Shigeto. His upcoming 2012 release, Lineage—a mini-LP of sorts that has a complex constellation of sounds and ideas that we have come to expect from the producer/drummer. Shigeto was one of the first of a wave of young artists who grew up influenced by the label’s early output. And again, names come into play. “Putting out these records on Ghostly isn’t just ‘getting signed,’ for me,” says Zach, “it’s becoming part of a family, an influence that I’ve respected forever”….

EN NUESTROS VIAJES

November 22nd, 2011

I am not really a Jazz music fan (Actually you could call most jazz fans I know fanatics, cause they are really into it and are extremely emotional about it and take criticism as if it is a personal offense). Since I have started reviewing music on Lofiles exactly 3 years ago, I have published 1400 posts, and I think only 5 of which were about jazz music. Sometimes, all that knowledge these Jazz cats do have is too much for me to grasp, the ignorant peasant I am. But why do I exhaust you with the long intro. This is the extremely rare occasion where I Actually wanted you listen to this Jazz record I like, even if you are not a jazz fan/atic. Its called ‘EN NUESTROS VIAJES’, (released 6 months ago) and this is a dialogue between 2 very talented musicians, (I called it a dialogue cause judging by the way this record sounds they really listen and respect one another).

Matt Davis plays the guitar and Javier Resendis plays the Rhodes. Cassette is out on the Galtta record label/ Studio and available at their shop or could be downloaded digitally only for 5$.

 


Gypsies

November 25th, 2010

I have just heard a Django Reinhardt track, and remembered having heard those 2 local artists playing at a radio station in Tel Aviv, one band is Swing De Gitanes, and they are on a Django Reinhardt successors mission, 2 classical guitars and upright bass, and the other one is violinist Mirel Reznik, a Klezmer Gipsy master, playing a violin guitar swinging piece. This is the actual broadcast session.
