wild combination

Went a free screening of WILD COMBINATION at Space 1520 in Hollywood last night where they are doing big big things (FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH TOMORROW NIGHT FOR FREE!!!). Wild Combination was no exception.

The film is a documentary portrait of the avant-garde Jazz/Folk/Dance legend Arthur Russell and if you are one of those people that like art and music I would have to suggest it. Arthur’s music is unlike anything to come before or after and he traversed the entire musical landscape experimenting with sound. When ALLEN GINSBERG is your biggest fan you are doing something right.

In homage to Arthur’s diver auditory wanderings we present you with two mixes that feature his work. The first is a more mellow mix with respect to his singer-songwriter musings. The second explores the dance club side to his aesthetic. Support art. Enjoy.
