Chieli Minucci is offering a new CD of never-released material, but you won’t find it in a record store. The guitarist has released a CD titled Travels as a digital download only on his website, chielimusic.com, the second time he has done so. Minucci says the music is separate from his Special EFX sound, although it overlaps stylistically. The music is a compilation of two projects, both of which are long-form compositions originally used for pre-show music for the theatrical productions Dora the Explorer – Live, Go, Diego Go - Live and Thomas and His Friends – Thomas Saves the Day.
Minucci says he's now put much more of a personal touch to these pieces, and they transcended their original purpose. The compositions are "Journey,"which has three parts, and “Bienvenidos” which has five. Each of the eight compositions are $1 each.Posted by Brian Soergel at August 11, 2007 8:32 PM
