Give My Regards to 116th Street

Kobe Van Cauwenberghe

Carrier Records (2015)

 

Give My Regards to 116th Street is Belgian guitarist Kobe Van Cauwenberghe’s humble homage to the city where he spent his formative years as a musician. Music from a number of New York based composers features heavily on this album. From the various collisions and malfunctions of Alex Mincek’s Strata, through the clicking rubbing, scraping and popping of Rama Gottfried’s Spindle, to Christopher Trapani’s association of the guitar and various american folk instruments in Really Coming Down, this album explores the different musical approaches of young American composers of Kobe’s generation.
