Gathering The World songs Product Information
Gathering The World album for sale by Wall Matthews was released Jan 17, 1992 on the Clean Cuts label. Guitarist/pianist/percussionist/composer Wall Matthews made an eclectic, culture-spanning album in GATHERING THE WORLD. There is evidence of Matthews's usual acoustic instrumentals, as on the lovely guitar passages of "Night Waterman" and the light, breezy Malian blues of "She Comes from the Sea" (which is somewhat reminiscent of Ali Farka Toure). Elsewhere, Matthews quotes more traditional African forms, as on the Pygmy chant "Clementine" and the uplifting, call-and-response vocals on the title track. Yet GATHERING THE WORLD is most interesting when Matthews blurs boundaries, as he does on the gospel-inflected "Go Down Old Hannah," which rides a funky, African drum-driven groove, or on the spacious, atmospheric blues "Pastures of Plenty." Female guest vocalists add the perfect counterpoint to Matthews's textured music, making GATHERING a nice balance between well-crafted, experimental fusion and lush, accessible music for relaxing.
