East Meets West (1984) was originally released on Bruton
Music, BRR18, bringing the collaborative efforts of Jon
Keliehor, Orlando Kimber, Eddy Sayer and Simon Tassano
together after performances of Keliehor's "DreamHouse" at
the World Music Village Festival, Commonwealth Institute,
London in 1983.
The recordings are performance based. Enhanced by engineer
Tassano's sound designs, they display a potent collection of
music ideas, melodic rhythms from a large, world-based
collection of mainly percussion instruments. Working at the
forefron of the sampling generationthese individuals forged
music very much ahead of its time.
