Kate Bush

KATE BUSH - Versuchsobjekt Popmusik

Kate Bush, who turned 60 in July, is one of the most innovative, experimental and influential artists in pop history. Her career is marked by unorthodox decisions, the urge for artistic freedom and at the same time the need to close oneself off to the public. The English artist is cranky, she has shifted and blown the boundaries of pop music while still preserving a sense of the sellability of her music. On the occasion of the re-release of her complete work we look at the experimental moment of Catherine Bush, CBE.

Roger Waters

ROGER WATERS - Soldat, Erzähler, Teufel

Although Roger Waters presented his first opera "Ça Ira" a few years ago, he is usually not regarded as a classical composer. However, the now 75-year-old already came into contact with classical works in the school choir of his hometown Cambridge and later became enthusiastic about Hector Berlioz' "Symphonie fantastique". Waters' latest classical coup is a new recording of Igor Stravinsky's anti-war piece "L'histoire du soldat". Interesting: Waters does not appear as a musician, but as a speaker.

Donny McCaslin , David Bowie

DONNY MCCASLIN - Der perfekte Blowjob

Donny McCaslin has been one of the hottest saxophonists in the USA since contributing to David Bowie's album legacy "★". The 52-year-old Berklee graduate gained important experience with jazz trumpeter Dave Douglas and the Maria Schneider Orchestra. Since his solo album "Casting For Gravity" McCaslin has developed an independent style that draws on fusion, art rock and electronic dance music. He goes one step further with his latest work "Blow.", on which he also picks up influences from alternative rock.

NAZARETH - Probezeit bestanden

Even if Nazareth has had to get along on stage for about five years without her friction voice Dan McCafferty, the real break is the new studio work "Tattooed On My Brain": for the first time in their 50-year history the Scottish band went into the studio with another singer than McCafferty. Carl Sentance has been the new frontman for a good three years now and has successfully completed his probationary period with the album. Founding member Pete Agnew raised both thumbs during the conversation.
