[TRIBUTE] – ‘ELEGY FOR MARK HOLLIS – A LIFE (1955-2019)’



One Robert Wyatt track ("Maryan") found it´s way to this Mark Hollis tribute from Musicophilia on Mixcloud. Follow link for track list.

The racks are chosen because they "focuses on music roughly contemporaneous to Talk Talk and ‘Mark Hollis,’ from the 1980s and 1990s", and also taken from their site "this mix is comprised of artists and sounds that I’ve loved for many years that have taken me near that singular place, and given me some of same the unnameable mix of joy, sorrow, hope, longing, mystery and meaning. They possess something of the spirit Mark Hollis gave to the world. ‘Elegy‘ is contemplative, sometimes mournful and often haunting. But like Mark Hollis’ music, I hope it will bring you joy through the shadow of sadness, hope in the face of loss".

What is this about? The attraction of Brazilian music to musicians all over the world. The model of togetherness that jazz offers the world. English humour meeting Brazilian. Stories behind the songs. Mônica’s family life and the eye condition which affects her and her brother. People they met along the way, this includes a guest appearance by rock and jazz legend Robert Wyatt."
