Bill Bruford And Keiko Abe - The New Percussion Group Of Amsterdam

This latest Summerfold Records release comes from The New Percussion Group of Amsterdam, featuring Bill Bruford and Keiko Abe. The album Go Between was originally released in 1986 but has been unavailable since 1992.

The New Percussion Group of Amsterdam was founded in 1980 by two solo percussionists of the Amsterdam Concertgebouw Symphony Orchestra, Jan Pustjens and Niels Le Large, specifically to bring new and adventurous percussion works to a young and modern audience. This re-mastered edition of Go Between comprises four long tracks of material written specifically for the project and its two stellar featured artists.

Bill Bruford has been in the top echelon of percussionists for almost forty years. Through bands like Yes, King Crimson and Genesis to countless sessions, and also leading a number of his own groups. Bill has enjoyed success within a number of different musical fields including rock and jazz. He currently leads the successful Earthworks jazz ensemble and runs the equally successful record labels Summerfold and Winterfold.

The eminent Japanese composer and virtuoso Keiko Abe studied percussion, composition and piano at Gakugei University in Tokyo, ultimately specialising on marimba, the instrument she was to change forever. Her formidable technical skill and powerful musical interpretation has made her a primary figure in the development of the modern five octave concert instrument, in terms of expanding both technique and repertoire.

This album will be eagerly anticipated by both the substantial and devoted Bill Bruford fan base and also by the growing Classical/World Music devotees. Both will appreciate a musical programme with one of the finest percussion groups in the world featuring two brilliant guest artists.
