A 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of Morrison Hotel will be released in 2020 by Rhino.
Tall Tall Trees Shares Second Track “The Wind, She Whispers” From New LP
Melding the influences of Pink Floyd and Cat Stevens with inspiration from banjo pioneers Earl Scruggs and Bela Fleck, A Wave of Golden Things is Savino’s fourth studio album and his most realized work to date.
Abandoning the heavily-layered textures of 2017’s Freedays for a more organic, stripped-down approach, A Wave of Golden Things leaves Savino’s distinct voice and song craft as the centerpiece of the album. Opting for an immersive experience, Savino self-recorded and self-produced this album – set up residence and a mobile recording rig on a hemp farm in the Appalachian mountains. Recorded in just under three weeks, with much of it arranged on the spot, the album maintains a sense of immediacy, celebrating raw performance over perfection.
