The Word on Spiral Out!

Spiral Out

"...makes you wonder what Crimso would be like if Oteri took over Belew's guitar chair - possibly re-invigorated!" FOUR THUMBS UP!
-Manny Lunch, Downtown Music Gallery NY
"Spiral Out is an extension of the improvisational outings that made acts like John McLaughlin's Mahavishnu Orchestra and Tony Williams Lifetime, King Crimson and even Frank Zappa the uniquely memorable experience that made musical history."  "Whatever is in Willie Oteri's water, I think it's high time that it was poured into the two dimensional cesspool which is what some of the homogenized and pasteurized modern music industry has become today.
-Bruce Stringer, Music Street Journal
"I think Spiral Out is one of the best fusion discs to come along in years. Where is the follow-up?? Keep The Faith (in the Music)"
-Ken Brown
"Guitarist Oteri with King Crimson side men in a improvised rock/jazz outing, prog fans take note, the torch of interesting fusion lives on!"
-Squidco, Review of Spiral Out
"A highly gifted work, absolute recommendation!"
-Ragazzi, Music Review of Spiral Out

Excited to be Working with Ronan Chris Murphy Again!

February 20 2005

I am very excited to be working again with producer, mixer Ronan Chris Murphy on a second CD that will also feature the King Crimson rhythm section, Pat Mastelotto and Tony Levin. We are in the basic talks now and we will be recording around the end of April, mostly in Italy.

We are booking shows for duets and full bands for the spring and summer including shows in Germany and Italy and hopefully other parts of the EU, including "45" a 45 hour non stop improvisational concert in Padova. This is part of a continuing madness that started years ago in the mind of Chris Boulet who started with a 6 plus hour non stop show then a 14 hour non stop show and then the infamous 33 1/3 show last year and now comes 45. Should be a blast as always. Stay tuned.

Until next time, don't hide in the Bush.

Willie
