Glen Neff Explores a Full Range of Hybrid Sounds,Harmonies and Rhythms on "BAMAKO" 
JamSphere Review: By Rick Jamm. March 04,2014. A couple of months back Glen released the World Dance Electronica CD BAMAKO.There is so much going on in this album. There's more than just a hint of World Music and Nu Jazz. Glen Neff's composing is extraordinary, and a source of inspiration for anyone worried that their creativity might dry up after their early-youth years. Neff's playing is fantastic - utterly dependable whenever he needs to swing or groove spontaneously, yet rich in emotion required to improvise a solo or the melody of each track. What is never in doubt from the moment you start getting into Neff's music is that you have before you many years of listening pleasure. The music will take you to places you have never been before and you'll always return with a refreshed point of view. Glen Neff explores the full range of hybrid sounds,harmonies and rhythms on BAMAKO. From a soft and tender relaxing vibe to a full blown controlled frenzy, this music parallels the experiences of planetary life with all it's ups and downs and ebbs and flows. It is something to experience often. The long and winding 9-track suite starts out slow, builds to a boil, explodes, and then mellows out from what can only be described as an emotional storm. From the title track, Bamako, through Walls of Darbari, Veenapersia, All or Nothing, Bolly Stop Spot and Time Machine Dreams, when the music finally ends, you have have been through an emotional roller-coaster.

BAMAKO is a riveting, hypnotic,exotic,and majestic piece of music from Glen Neff.

Tribal Timeshift
2011

Tribal Trance Electronica World

A journey through time, this dreamy CD provokes images in the head.
Blending pulsating beats with eerie synthesizers and creates melodic details,
conguring musical masterpieces that are spellbinding.


Skope Magazine review: December 20, 2011
Glen Neff was born in New Jersey in a family that was extremely musically inclined. Growing up in this environment opened a lot of doors for him as he built his own career one beat at a time. His music is atmospheric and soothing. He is able to inspire emotions with out the benefit of any lyrics. He now lives in New Mexico in a round straw-bale house he designed and built himself. I assume this is the birth place of his cosmic instrumentals. This CD was beyond fascinating for me. I am a songwriter stronger in lyrics than I am in melodies, so anyone with the ability to manipulate tunes in such extraordinary ways is mind blowing to me. The entire CD is dreamy to say the least. It feels like a journey through time. It provokes images in my head of nature documentaries you might see on the NatGeo or Science channel. Glen has a unique way of blending pulsating beats with eerie synthesizers that create intricate melodic detail. Glen Neff has an impressive bio with numerous projects done for TV and films; after listening to his latest release, “Tribal Timeshift”, it is easy to understand why. He is a composer extraordinaire, who can conjure musical masterpieces that are spellbinding. While listening to the CD in its entirety I came to learn, understand and appreciate that I was in the presence of greatness. This CD not only is an excellent learning tool for anyone interested in pursuing a composing career, it is also an awesome resource of enjoyment.

Morning Sun

Morning Sun-Glen Neff

by Glen Neff

"With an extra measure of jazz chops,Glen Neff is head and shoulders above the Budd/Eno clones in his sophisticated use of harmonics,rhythms and synth voicings.His music has a kind of languid dissonance which suggests Ravel,and various motifs twist and blend with impressive intricacy. The feeling is solid and spacy at the same time,which is no mean feat." Option Magazine L.A. " His music is as adventurous and lively as much of that other stuff is predictable and cumbersome. Synthesist Neff is a true improvisor and a reflexive expert at reacting to himself on tape. This one-man interactivity is compelling in and of itself,but what really counts are the basic building blocks of Neff's music-the notes themselves. Since the compositions are initiated spontaneously and later embellished,the musical mind of the initiator had best be fertile. Tis'.Neff, to a degree,shows the results of a jazz background in his extemporaneous melodicism,but he hasn't got a bunch of rote bop licks to trot out.The innocence of his lines works extraordinarily well with the complexity of his construction.The more traditional textures,the ones to which words like "majestic" are usually applied,are here made into something more substantial,thanks once again to Neff's melodic ingenuity and a decidedly avante-garde bent in the peripheral activity,plenty for an inquisitive brain to chew on."Mike Keneally (Frank Zappa) San Diego Reader.Recorded on vintage Kurtzweil Midiboard,Kurtzweil 1000PX,DX7,TX81Z,OBX,Memory Moog,Akai S612 Sampler,Atari 1040,Creator C-Lab,Effectron 1024,Midiverb ll,Toa Mixing Board,AMR 4 Track Cassette,ST707 Reel to Reel,bowed Banjo.Maria Solaris-vocalise
