Wienerworld are releasing a brand new album on 13th August which is a collaboration with legendary Doors keyboardist, Ray Manzarek, and poet Michael McClure taking Ray's music to another dimension, 'Piano Poems: Live From San Francisco'.
Michael McClure states:
"On a cold, foggy night in San Francisco after a great Japanese meal, Manzarek and McClure stepped onto the stage and there were sparks of consciousness - the stage was on fire with poems and piano improvisations. The symbiosis and the synergy made lights. Then Larry Kassin stepped up to join the two with his jazz flute while Lou Judson was recording."
This is a live album with its heart still beating - no tricks, gimmicks, or second takes. McClure's poetry and Ray's improvisations shaped words and sound into richer meanings: Piano Poems.
