1 - KENNEDY, PETE - ELECTRIC SITAR MEDITATIONS - (CD) 
THE KENNEDYS


In the next room, Electric Sitar Meditations by Pete Kennedy is playing. The drone of his sitar is calming, but at the same time it triggers a heightened sensual awareness. Kennedy's solid reputation as a folk-rock sideman was cemented long ago through his work with Nanci Griffith, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Kate Wolf and most notably his wife and duo partner Maura Kennedy. He's also released a string of guitar-centric albums in the roots/Americana genre. Now he takes a bold step in a new direction, offering a set of jazz classics from the late fifties "modal" period associated with Miles and Coltrane, balanced against a virtual "side two" of his own improvisations on classical themes by Debussy, Ravel, Stravinsky and Bartok. The electric sitar, played solo throughout without overdubs or edits, is an evocative, surprisingly sonorous instrument with which Kennedy quietly reinvents the instrument as an "ancient but fresh" sound.

2 - KENNEDY, PETE - HEART OF GOTHAM - (CD) 
THE KENNEDYS


Guitarist and songwriter Pete Kennedy, known for his work with Maura Kennedy in husband-and-wife duo The Kennedys, steps out with his first project as a roots-rock frontman in two decades. Harder edged than the duo's jangly, Byrds-inflected sound, Heart of Gotham is an all-original song cycle that showcaseshis talents as a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and singer, with a voice that is gritty but with a strong ring of truth. Ultimately it's the lyrics, film-noir vignettes dealing with life in his hometown, New York City, that bring this long- anticipated project to a redemptive fullness.
