Guadalcanal Diary Pillow Talk from Walking In The Shadow Of The Big Man (Rhino Handmade reissue) Add to Collection
This week, Features Co-Director Mick R speaks with Woody Goss, a Chicagoland native who is best known as the pianist and composer of Vulfpeck. Goss discusses his latest solo album, Rainbow Beach, which is a real beach in the South Shore neighborhood, and how a rare birding experience there shaped the visual theme of the album, the lore behind Carolina parakeets and their inclusion in Rainbow Beach's album artwork, and his fruitful year of birdwatching.
"I wanted to make something relaxing. [...] Booker T and the MGs had this song called 'Sunday Sermon' that I had been listening to for a few years and I put this song on whenever I just wanted to just chill out, and I was like, 'man, I want more music like this.' And so that was kind of an inspiration. I need more music with just a live single and a piano just grooving." - Woody Goss
