Riders On the Storm - The Doors Concerto

Open iTunes om muziek voor te beluisteren, te kopen en te downloaden.


There's always an air of pretentiousness that accompanies classical performances of pop and rock classics, and most performances are quickly dismissed to the muzak-filled realms of elevators and doctor's waiting rooms. The fact that classical violinist Nigel Kennedy has dropped his first name for this set (to become Kennedy) doesn't bode well. Which makes it all the more surprising that this collection is quite good. Teaming up with producer Jaz Coleman (who has previously reworked Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin in the same vein) and the Prague Symphony Orchestra, Kennedy's violin replaces the vocals of Jim Morrison. Fortunately, lurking underneath Kennedy's guise as a rebel lies the thing which first brought him so much attention: his ability to play exquisite music, both technically and emotionally. Coleman's arrangements bring new depth to the music; at times the results bear little in common with the originals (such as "Riders on the Storm" and "People Are Strange"); nonetheless, they're fascinating musical excursions best approached with an open mind. Some tracks, such as the simple pop classic "Light My Fire," would have been better left alone and cry out for Morrison's passionate vocals rather than the melancholic strains of the violin; nonetheless, this collection makes for a good listen in an oftentimes difficult genre.

He uses oriental classical styles that give an extra dimension... . Lean back in your best chair, make sure no one will disturb you and dive into this precious peace. Some of my friends have allready chosen songs as their favorite on their own funeral, so have I....

Jaz Coleman has had his hand in many genres of music, from post-punk angst to composing classical music. A Londoner residing in New Zealand, Coleman came to the public's notice singing and playing keyboards in the band Killing Joke in 1978. As Killing Joke's career began to slow down in the early '90s, their singer worked with Art of Noise member Anne Dudley on the 1991 Middle Eastern themed Songs from the Victorious City. Coleman teamed with Killing Joke bassist Youth and collaborated on two symphonic...
