CD Reviews

Dr Orlando Owoh
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Where are the rest of Dr Orlando Owoh's famous music and songs. I am particularly interested in his early recordings with his Omimah Band/African Keneries for my music library and listening pleasures. Thanks"

"Intrigued by the title, I went ahead and purchased this album. The pretentious liner notes droolingly compare this music to Ives, Stravinsky, and other 20th-century masters, but the actual music is pure drivel. Each track is a mind numbingly long (17-19 minute) mid-tempo groove with a static harmony and forgetable melody. The guitars are playing in two different keys (and drastically out of tune with each other), but even that's only interesting for a minute or two, because each player stays on one or two chords in his key. If you are completely tone-deaf, you might enjoy this stuff for its "groove". Not being a stoner, I can't seem to get into it.

To be fair, I don't speak the language, so perhaps the lyrics add some value to this music that I am unfortunately unable to grasp."
