Seacoastonline’s Christopher Hislop interviews Randy Armstrong about the Beyond Borders concert presented by Randy, Volker Nahrmann and 8 international artists.
“More than a collection of tracks, the album is a scenic travelogue covering a range of World Beat music with the accent on Latin, Brazilian and Indian music and those genres are just some of the scenic signposts dotting the album’s sweeping terrain. In addition to his expert synth guitar work and his background in exotic percussion, Randy Armstrong is a seasoned guitarist who is equally gifted on both classical, steel string and electric guitars and he uses all of it to enhance the sound. Volker Narhmann gives the album its tasteful sonic thunder so to speak and he plays a range of different acoustic and electric basses.”
“Revered musician Randy Armstrong is back with his latest recorded effort, ‘Beyond Borders,’ which is literally just that —a global musical voyage with no boundaries. It’s an exploration in sonic textures and global grooves that evoke movement and, at the same time a serene space in which to meditate and reflect on, well, life.”
