#7A. Brian Bennett – 14 Entries
Solo-composed drum/ percussion workouts are relatively few and far between in The Shadows' repertoire: the first and last listed are the predominant ones. Atmospheric soundscapes, as befits a prolific composer of 'Library Music' (LOOK BACK ON LOVE, MOUNTAINS OF THE MOON) and distinctive, relaxed melodies (IT'S BEEN A BLUE DAY, POEM, COLORADO SONG BIRD) are strong points. On the other hand, #7B below harbours two of the direst vocals from the group.
