I was at the helm again for last week’s 101 Dimensions and I plotted an interesting journey for us! This was the itinerary:

1. Pete Townshend – Who Are You (from the album The Lifehouse Chronicles, 2000); Catsnatch; Body Language; and Baroque Ippanese (from the album Scooped, 1995)

2. Jean-Michel Jarre – Electric Flesh; and Skin Paradox (from the album Geometry Of Love, 2003)

3. The Orb (featuring David Gilmour) – Metallic Side (from the album Metallic Spheres, 2010)

4. The Fragile Fate (featuring Rupert Greenall, Jerry Marotta, and Eric Taylor) – Bell-Like; Configuration; Rolled Over; Large Rooms; and The Lost Toy Piano (from the album Lilliam Ocean, 2015

5. Glass Hammer – Twilight On Longview (from the album On To Evermore, 1998)

6. Kitaro – Mysterious Encounter; Sundance; The Field; and The Light Of The Spirit (from the album The Light Of The Spirit, 1987)

If you missed it last weekend, I hope you will join me for the podcast!

Until next time, Prog On!

101 Dimensions – August 2018-1

 

 

 

Jerry Marotta is one of the most prolific drummers in the history of modern music. He has played on literally hundreds of records and has worked with acts such as Orleans, Hall & Oates, The Indigo Girls, Stackridge, Marshall Crenshaw, The Dream Academy, Tears For Fears, Elvis Costello, Paul McCartney, and many, many more. Of particular note to Progressive Rock music fans is his association with Peter Gabriel, Tony Levin, and Trey Gunn of King Crimson, who now works with Jerry in the Security Project. Jerry is my esteemed guest on this week’s Prog-Watch, and he talks at length about working with the Prog icons just mentioned, and what he is up to now. Along the way we will hear lots of great music from the progressive end of his resume.
