Product Notes

Short wave has been around for a long time. But, Detroit-area songwriter, Greg Utech, has given the radio communication term a new meaning. Utech's compact disc entitled Spank has meshed artistry and technology to bring forth a musical offering that's both impressive and innovative. Stepping away from typical production, Utech uses a fluent mixture of unique sounds from untraditional sources such as short wave radio, audio travelogues and sound-snippet archives blended with electronics and conventional musical instruments. Jazz and techno fans alike will want this CD in their collection. The title track, "Spank" is a jazz lover's delight with Walt Szymanski's wailing trumpet backed by a funky beat. "Mark's Boat Trip" takes you on your own journey with it's driving foundation and Sheila Landis' haunting vocals. And "Bushmonkey" is a sobering commentary on the chaos of our world. Spank is a music and sound experiment that evokes a wide array of human emotions. Recording artist Joe Henry said of Utech's work, "I'm a sucker for that sonic palate...I'm entertained."
