"Music is the cup that holds the wine of silence. Sound is that cup, but empty. Noise is that cup, but broken.”

Conjure


 Kip Hanrahan born in 1954 in a Puerto Rican area of the Bronx, is one of my favorite musical producer and former of the famous record label "American Clavé"  where, for records and concerts, he could get together great artists as Jack Bruce, Jerry Gonzàlez, Hilton Ruiz, Jamaaladeen Tacuma, Don Pullen, Milton Cardona, Arto Lindsay, Anton Fier, David Moss, Steve Swallow, the great unknown Alfredo Triff and many many others...


 

"Kip Hanrahan, a producer, a composer, a percussionist and facilitator, Kip Hanrahan has an uncanny ability to assemble remarkable musicians and apply their talents in interesting ways. The results are often magical. His records are as enigmatic as he is, and maybe that heightens the attraction and expectation..." 

"Conjure" is one of his special project
