One Giant Leap

One Giant Leap

This album & dvd, featuring MIchael Stipe, Eddie Reader, Ashe Bosle, Michael Franti, Kurt Vonnegut, Speech, and a plethora of World musicians, is in my opinion one of the greatest musical achievements of the past 20 years

Jamie Catto & Duncan Bridgeman spent over a year travelling the world, using pre-recorded drum samples & basslines, and then adding pieces from musicians in each country they then visited … letting the musicians add to what the last musician had played

The resulting compositions are truly World Music and exceptionally beautiful … the sum being far more than the parts

The second installment, “What About Me”, has now been shown in weekly episodes on CH4, but I’m waiting to see the film … can’t wait
