Guillaume Bouzignac (1690?-1743?) was not attached to the French Royal Court. His music was not published by Ballard, who held a royal monopoly on musical publication. He MAY have been a choirboy in Narbonne, a master of the choirboys in Grenoble, a musical servant of Henri Montmorency, governor of Languedoc at the time of the wars against the Huguenots, and a person of musical importance in the city of Tours, where the manuscript of these motets was discovered in 1905. That covers almost everything that's known about the composer outside of the very specific information about his musical thought contained in his works.
Romantic Warriors III - Got Canterbury? Special Features DVD (2016) is the companion DVD to the highly acclaimed documentary "Romantic Warriors III - Canterbury Tales" that was released in 2015. "Got Canterbury?" contains almost 5 hours of new footage, including the remaining (and last) interviews with Daevid Allen, and pioneering promoter Giorgio Gomelsky. Also on the DVD: Live performances of bands that were featured in the film, including Forgas Band Phenomena, The Wrong Object, Soft Machine Legacy, and American bands Glass and The Muffins…
This is the very first project of an ex-member ONE SHOT. The band is led by drummer Daniel Jeand'Heur. The music itself, while firmly connected to the classic One Shot sound (a heavy bass, explosive drums, Fender Rhodes, long tracks), also features a horn section.
The result, as you may expect from such a band, is a bridge between the most electric jazz-rock bands and prog. But the real sensation here is the inclusion of occasional vocals that add a modern urban vibe to the whole thing - and that fits perfectly. That guy (whose stage name is "Onan") reminds quite a bit some of George Duke's vocals while with FZ's Mothers of Inventions.
