Disc 2 (Trk 16)
"Las Siete Poderes Africanos"
AP: "The Seven African Powers." What's that supposed to mean? This is
another vintage track you and I did back in Frazier Park in '93. You
even got to show off on a acoustic guitar program I had at the time,
playing parts that physically couldn't be played in the real world
unless they were overdubbed. What do you think, has the piece held up?
RG: I saw this title on a candle I bought at the grocery store. The
candles that show different saints! I later pulled out the old piece,
remixed it, and matched it to the title. Your rhythm had this Santana
quality to it that fit perfectly with the title.
AP: So, what are your future plans at this point--future projects? At one
point, you were going to use the Bone pieces for your next album, and
leading it off with "From the Bottom of the Sea." Is that still a possibility?
RG: "From The Bottom OF the Sea" will be on my next CD. I'm also
working on electro-Italian style pieces where I am using my Melodica.
Imagine Kraftwerk, Budd, and Piazzola. Other styles will include Glass,
Klaus Shulze, Satie, Fripp & Eno, all done Garcia style of course! I'm
not sure what's happening with Richard's pieces. Maybe he'll release
it, maybe I will.
