Guest Stars : September Song

Pascal Comelade : September Song (with Robert Wyatt)


Pascal Comelade is a French (or,I'd better say, Catalan) musician with a passion for instrumentals (he doesn't sing)and unconventional arrangements.

In this 2000 EP, dedicated to covers of pop standards played with toy instruments (along with "Knockin' On Heaven's Door", "The Sheik of Araby" and others) the only vocal track was by Robert Wyatt, legendary musician and genius, I mean the one who made my all-time favorite album (Rock Bottom), and another specialist for quirky covers of great standards (remember his version of "I'm a beliver" in 1974). He also plays the trumpet on this one.
