ROGER SMITH "Unexpected Turns" (1993-6) EMANEM 4014

Stunning solo acoustic guitar improvisations (recorded digitally) by one of the unsung masters, who made his previous highly acclaimed solo record much too long ago in 1980. "A mercurial combination of flowing lyricism and disruptive awkwardness, unafraid of exploiting the conventional beauty of the instrument's timbre as well as startling the ear with more abrasive sounds." (Ian Vickers, from his sleeve notes.) 69 minutes.

Special price GBP 7.00

Mostly extended solo acoustic guitar improvisations to complement the mainly short items on his highly acclaimed previous CD (EMANEM 4014). Also a duet with flautist NEIL METCALFE. 78 minutes.

Special price GBP 7.00

ROGER SMITH & LOUIS MOHOLO-MOHOLO "The Butterfly and the Bee" (2004) EMANEM 4114

Following the success of their very first performance together at the 2004 FREEDOM OF THE CITY festival (heard on EMANEM 4215), Roger Smith and Louis Moholo-Moholo went into the studio to record some more. Their second meeting went so well that they recorded enough duo improvisations for a complete CD. The resulting music is heard complete, with Smith on Spanish guitar and Moholo on augmented drum set. 71 minutes.

Special price GBP 7.00

ADAM BOHMAN & ROGER SMITH "Reality Fandango" (2004/6) EMANEM 4135

At the end of 2004, Adam Bohman went to Roger Smith's home, and the duo recorded two extended improvisations included in their entirety. Bohman returned a year and a half later, resulting in four short duos to fill out the CD. Smith played Spanish guitar, and Bohman a table top covered with objects including a prepared violin. Apart from a very short section of electric guitar, no electronics or amplification were used, so that both musicians could hear themselves and each other (unlike their intervening Southend concert). The music sounds like no other (although there are certain similarities to the Three Pullovers from 30 years earlier). 75 minutes.

Special price GBP 7.00

IMPORTANT NOTICE



PASCAL MARZAN & ROGER SMITH "Two Spanish Guitars" (2006/7) EMANEM 4145

The meeting of two of the finest finger-style guitarists around. Pascal Marzan has come from Paris to London several times and recorded duets with Roger Smith resulting in great music that ranges from the hyper-frantic to the laid-back pastoral. This CD should help give both guitarists the reputations they deserve. 76 minutes.

Special price GBP 7.00
