"After the widely noticed performance at the „Acht Brücken Festival 2016” at Cologne's Philharmonic Hall, Gregor Schwellenbach, Hauschka, Erol Sarp (of „Grandbrothers“), Daniel Brandt, Paul Frick (both of "Brandt Brauer Frick") and John Kameel Farah will be releasing their interpretation of Steve Reich’s "Six Pianos" as a studio recording via FILM. The re-recording of this piece is an interpretation of Reich’s composition but still far more than just that – it is a modern approach to his idea behind it. "Keyboard Study #1" by Terry Riley is a worthy b-side opposed to Reich’s composition.

The composition proposes various possible combinations for the performer to choose from and repeat at will. And what the performers have chosen proves Gregor Schwellenbach’s assumption: "Especially Terry Riley’s and Steve Reich’s music are open doors for pianists socialized by pop music and their audience".

The album stayed in the Top 10 for eleven weeks, peaking at #2. Outstanding reissue. It sounds better than the original release. The standout track is "John I'm only dancing". I have never heard the sax and guitar as clearly on this mix. What a difference ! Get this one you will not be disappointed. The original David Bowie hits compilation tells the story of Bowie's metamorphosis from quizzical folkie to a conquering colossus, and is partially responsible for cementing his stardom.
