From the heart of the Big Apple Eric Kamen delivers his multicultural instrumental music to the world. Nearly a year and a half has passed since the incredible Native Unit made its mark upon our consciousness and now Eric 2.0 continues the journey of the tasteful Latin-World flavored instrumental compositions that have built a large worldwide following. Once again, Kamen gracefully plucks his Spanish guitar and dazzles us with picturesque soundscapes on his latest offering.
Kamen composed, recorded, and played all the instruments on Eric 2.0, again proving his steadfast indie approach to all of his recorded output. Since the release of the last album, the artist has found his place amongst the many flourishing cyberspace communities. The phenomenon of Myspace is no stranger to Eric, and he has created an entirely new audience by connecting to that community. As he progresses as an artist, his listener’s are with him every step of the way.
Fourteen tracks encompass Eric 2.0 and his distinctive World-Latin-Fusion comes at you in different tones, atmospheres, and flavors. Each track creates a story in one’s mind, allowing you to run away with the music for a while then you begin to write your own script as the music unfolds. Spanish guitar, Indian tablas, sitar, and many other worldly sounds emanate from this musical melting pot of instrumental delights.
The enchanting “1001 Nights” and “Etude for Flute and Sitar” give the listener a Middle Eastern flavor while “La Gitane” reminds you again of Eric’s expertise with Spanish guitar and how a melody can sweep you away and stay stuck in your head for hours on end. The entire recording is something you will want to hear repeatedly.
The master of moods and atmospheres is back with another work of genius and he does it all without saying a word, he lets his guitar do all the talking for him.
