Tamia & Pierre Favre
playing music from their two ECM albums
& reading passages from my talk with them in old Paris 1991
John McLaughlin: Birds of Fire
Pharoah Sanders: Tauhid
Terry Riley: Persian Surgery Dervishes
((Surely regarded as spiritual music by the artists involved, MUSIC FOR ZEN MEDITATION would have been nicely placed as interludes between the long tracks))
Marion Brown: Vista
Jan Garbarek & The Hilliards: Remember me, my dear
John Coltrane: Blue World
(I know what Im good at, but the transition from Marion Brown to The Hilliards didn‘t work well, soundwise, so here again, to use it as a „leitmotif“, MUSIC FOR ZEN MEDITATION would have bee a good „separator“:)
Frank Harris & Maria Marquez: Echoes (that wonderful compilation on vinyl from the label with the nice name Strangelove Music)
I don‘t know how often I drove around the planet since 1990, between Dortmund and Cologne and back in the night, and later on between Aachen and Cologne and back between late evening and early morning. In the first twenty-five years the show was on air every two weeks.
Two or three months ago I was nearly crashing my car and myself cause for two or three or even five seconds (who knows?) I fell asleep while driving (this normally cannot happen to me , cause I know how to act when getting totally tired on a highway, but, well, it happened). There was no other car around, and after some breaking I came to a halt.
This was the day I finally decided to let it all go. With other good reasons at hand, too, I decided to end my „radio life“ in 2020 doing my last radio show of „Klanghorizonte“ in December 2020. And I meanwhile found a driver, in fact three drivers, so I can have my decent amount of sleep in the morning. Drivers are such a big luxury.© Michael Engelbrecht
