Silva, Alan & Burton Greene: Parallel Worlds (Long Song Records)
Label: Long Song Records    
Released in: Italy    


"Retro electronics for this time!

Amazing and strong vintage synth and keys duo improvisations by free jazz pioneers Alan Silva and Burton Greene, still exploring and pushing boundaries after half a century of no compromise careers.

Burton Green says:

"It's not about the latest (electronic) instruments or gadjets.. it's about the creativity of the composer/improvisor. Alan Silva and I have so-called "dated" instruments or "retro electronics", but you can just judge for yourself if what we do with them is dated on not..!.. i.e. I've heard creative drummers working just with pots and pans or beating on tables or the backs of chairs with drum sticks and I've been amazed at what they can produce. A colleague pianistJasper Van t'Hof worked extensively with an old PPG analog keyboard back in the 70´s and 80´s The company stoppedproducing them for a long time, but popular demand by young musicians inspired by musicians like Jasper brought back the PPG sound in digital module form much later on. My Roland gear is very simple.. I use an old D50 synth with a U110 module.. I've made something like 400 programs for it including all kinds of complex polyphony detuned orchestras, combi instruments that don't exist other than on my keyboard or module. Alan uses mostly just presets on his instrument but what he gets out of them, I've never heard anoyone else do.

Enjoy!" "-Long Song Records
