Scenes from a Voyage to Arcturus
'Scenes from a Voyage to Arcturus' Ron Thomas - Keyboards Glenn Ferracone - Drums Richard Burton - Keyboards Bob Meashey - Trumpet Bob Howell - Soprano Saxophone Recorded and Mastered by Glenn Ferracone at The Music Centre, Exton, PA Produced by Richard Burton Vectordisc 002 A soundscape to David Lindsay's science fiction classic 'A Voyage to Arcturus'. 'I always thought that music had no boundaries, no limits to where it could grow and go, no restrictions on it's creativity. Good music is good music no matter what kind of music it is. And I always hated categories. Always. Never thought it had any place in music.' Miles Davis Miles Davis would like this disc. I have no idea what category this music falls into, for it successfully bridges the gaps between Toru Takemitsu, Weather Report, James Joyce and Pablo Picasso. Many different and contrasting worlds are alluded to, while the voice of Ron Thomas is always present. This music sounds very fresh-it's real, unfettered creativity and imagination in an age where everything else seems pre-cut to fit neatly in a category. The element of surprise is always at work,and the next move is never predictable.
