Pierre Bensusan & Didier Malherbe
Live Au New Morning
(Sorry, currently out of stock.)
A beautiful album of high musical brilliance.
Recorded live at the New Morning club in Paris in March 1997 before an enthusiastic audience, here are Didier - the most complete musician ever to grace Gong - and acoustic guitar virtuoso, Pierre Bensusan at the very top of their form. It's beautifully recorded and full of the melodic invention and brilliance, Didier's Bamboo Shoot Improvisation is a wonder. But Pierre is in no way overshadowed by Didier's genius, his contribution is equally remarkable - he is one hell of a guitarist. Together they produce the most sublime of musical conversations that touch many musical genres.
Note: When daevid and I went to see them in concert around this time, it was Pierre's use and mastery of the guitar effects unit called a 'Boomerang' that inspired daevid to eventually get one.
