The exceptional atmosphere of this acoustic concert reflects not only in the music but also the familiar setting; candles instead of a laser show, a string section instead of keyboard sounds, reduction instead of inflation. Floydian grandeur turns into intimate music experience, borne by creativity, wit, charm and respect for the makers who are Pink Floyd. This DVD, recorded at the sold out Stadttheater Aschaffenburg, impressively documents the memorable evening and manifests the music of Pink Floyd in a way that it has not been heard before.
After performing hundreds of concerts throughout Europe, enchanting thousands of people and playing festivals alongside all time greats like Jethro Tull, Joe Cocker, Manfred Mann and Asia, Echoes are now one of the premier Pink Floyd Tribute Bands. To echo the music has never been enough for this band and so the elaborate live shows convey the grandeur in all its facets. The "Süddeutsche Zeitung" simply calls it a spectacle.
British band Echoes perform a live acoustic tribute to Pink Floyd. The tracks performed include 'Shine On You Crazy Diamond', 'Wish You Were Here' and 'Comfortably Numb'.
The Piano Tribute to Pink Floyd contains twelve solo piano pieces performed by David Ari Leon. Most songs are simple interpretations without fancy improvisations, but it really gets to the heart of the essense of Pink Floyd.
Better than a mere tribute album, this compilation is actually Pink Floyd's legendary album covered in its entirety and original playing order by Shadow Gallery, Enchant, Cairo, Magellan and other masters of today's progressive music.
An electronic tribute album to Pink Floyd isn't a bad idea, since the head-swimming quality of the group's music is so often a prime mover in electronica. However, the talent assembled for this Vitamin production is too often relies on a restatement of the original song, without employing available electronic trickery to suggest anything new. Alex Xenophon is the main offender here, offering two versions of "Comfortably Numb" and a take on "The Wall." Only Motor Industries rises to the task, giving "Is There Anybody Out There?" a cool, retooled, new wave groove. The collective also renders "Time" as a drifting cocktail of 10cc and dub, referencing the clouds in Pink Floyd's head while creating a few of its own.
A pleasant compilation of Oscar Peterson tracks with Ed Thigpen, Louis Hayes, Bobby Durham, and others sitting in, all anchored by Peterson's classic version of "Fly Me to the Moon," originally written by Bart Howard in 1954.
