What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

YES ALUMNI: Patrick Moraz Releases Moraz Album Project

Patrick Moraz has released his collaborative album entitled Moraz Alban Project - or MAP for short. The former Yes and Moody Blues man partnered with longtime friend and drummer Greg Alban on the record, which is billed as 'a collection of instrumental pieces that range in style and spirit of world-fusion, rock and jazz.'

The pair - who first worked together on Moraz' 1984 album Timecode - are joined on the new release by bassist John Avila (Oingo Boingo) and percussionist Lenny Castro (Elton John, Eric Clapton), as well as guests Matt Malley (Counting Crows), Dave Van Such and Patrick Perrier.

Moraz says: "Some time ago, Greg asked me if I would like to start composing and arranging some music that he could play the drums on. He wanted to record a whole album together, and eventually, of course, release it." Read more here.
