El Grande, Jono: Melody of a Muddled Mason (Rune Grammofon)

Label: Rune Grammofon    
Released in: Norway    

"Melody Of A Muddled Mason is the natural successor to Neo Dada, Jonos masterstroke from 2009. Some of Jonos finest writings can be found here, and he has refined his already considerable arranging skills to perfection, just listen to Bach's Beach and the title track for evidence. Jono lists movements like Rock in Opposition and the Canterbury scene and artists and composers like Frank Zappa, Stravinsky, Magma, Henry Cow and Gentle Giant as sources of inspiration. With his releases and stage shows he has now established his own signature, with mature compositions, refined arrangements, improved guitar playing and the introduction of subtle vocals. Melody Of A Muddled Mason is the sound of a composer and producer at the peak of his powers.-Rune Grammofon

Also available on vinyl LP.
