New Age

This is EKO's finest CD!!! Their is a combination of jazz, rock, new age, and world music on this set. My favorites are Morning In Martinique and Navajo White. EKO receives almost no airplay in most parts of this nation…yet have a following of devoted fans. I am glad to be one of them!

Logikal is the second release from Irish guitarist John O'Connor's eclectic group Eko. The sound centers around O'Connor's guitars as he cooks up an old-world folk music hybrid that extends to Andean, Celtic, Irish and Caribbean influences. Gutsy finger-picking gives way to laidback island flavorings and easygoing changes. Several musicians with rock and folk backgrounds are heard, like percussionist Hossam Ramzy, Bob Loveday from Penguin Cafe Orchestra and the versatile Danny Thompson on double bass. The sound is ethnically based and highly charged with large doses of clean, lighthearted fun.
