Greaves, John - Verlaine

SKU 32-ZZT080202
"John Greaves is a bit of an enigma. Apart from his solo career, he has played bass with Michael Nyman, sung opera with Jack Bruce, collaborated with Robert Wyatt and Carla Bley, and played piano with Robert Crumb. Over the last two decades, he has produced a stack of albums strangely wonderful and wonderfully strange. The new French Dictionnaire du Rock allows him a whole page, yet in the British equivalent you'd be lucky to learn he was a part of the infamous Henry Cow and National Health, or that he continues to collaborate regularly with Peter Blegvad. His newest release features poetry by Paul Verlaine transposed into songs as irreverent and sexy as the old reprobate would have liked."

"John Greaves is one of the finest voices in British music ... runs the gamut from vocal caresses to near-shouts in superb ballads."-Le Monde
