Hopper, Hugh / Alan Gowen - Two Rainbows Daily (expanded)

SKU Rune 77
“...the coming together of two British jazz-rock giants. ...These gracefully introspective instrumentals feature Gowen's trademark flowing analog synth and Hopper's unique high-register bass work in equal measure.” – muze.com

“...showcases harmonic and compositional sensitivity....” – Revue & Corrigee

“There are only keyboards and bass, sometimes with multiple overdubs, keeping it a two-man creation. Therefore, the mood of the album remains very intimate and friendly...beautifully crafted tunes." – AllMusic

Happily once again available physically; it's a sad world for us when this title isn't available. Many of you already have this; some of you don't; ALL of you should!

Reissue of a long out of print classic from 1980 from these two fine, composers & instrumentalists.

Both men were best known for the work they had done before this album; bassist and composerHugh Hopper for his work with Soft Machine, Isotope and Gilgamesh and keyboardist and composer Alan Gowen for his work with National Health and Gilgamesh.

While rich in sound due to overdubs, Two Rainbows Daily doesn't have a full band sound, & this rather stripped-down approach makes for a "intimate" release filled with crafty melodies & subtle tonal colors.

Mastered directly off the master tapes, it sounds terrific! As a bonus there is 20' of extra live material & excellent liner notes by Hugh, which tell the story of the making of this disc.
