Barbazza, Annie - Vive CD

SKU 33-DC 0013
“This is Annie Barbazza’s first solo album. She is a rising star of the international avant / prog scene. She was on stage with Greg Lake and plays bass with Paul Roland Band. She performs with Henry Cow’s John Greaves as a duo and she already has an album on Manticore records, produced by Greg Lake, Moonchild, with pianist Max Repetti.
This album has a long history: Lake originally wanted Annie to played all the instruments, but the record slowly turned into an all-star friends collaboration for most of them asked Annie to be part of it, from Fred Frith to John Greaves, from Lino Capra Vaccina to Daniel Lanois and Paul Roland.
All tracks are originals with the exception of two tracks written for her by John Greaves and Paul Roland and a cover of the splendid Blegvad / Greaves classic, ‘How Beautiful You Are’. Those who know Annie are aware of her elusive, shy nature. By these songs she gave voice to her inner ghosts and dreams, desires and fierce creativity.
This is an intimate, courageous, innovative album in which the many influences and musical styles of Annie melt together. Producer Max Marchini wanted to keep as immediate as they were conceived and played, avoiding over-engineering. The result is a collection of songs that span over the years working on which the many sides of the sparking, incredible voice of Annie Barbazza are the main character.”
