Thursday, November 11th at 8pm:
The Jazz Record Art Collective is proud to present a livestream and in-person performance celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Elton John's "Madman Across the Water", released in 1971.
"Trading the cinematic aspirations of Tumbleweed Connection for a tentative stab at prog rock, Elton John and Bernie Taupin delivered another excellent collection of songs with Madman Across the Water. Like its two predecessors, Madman Across the Water is driven by the sweeping string arrangements of Paul Buckmaster, who gives the songs here a richly dark and haunting edge. And these are songs that benefit from grandiose treatments. With most songs clocking in around five minutes, the record feels like a major work, and in many ways it is."
