WEST COAST MUSIC

 
HOME          ARTISTS          MUSICIANS          SAMPLES          FAVOURITES          CONTACTS

     La lista seguente cerca di elencare in modo esauriente quelli che sono i principali artisti west coast. Attenzione, il termine west coast può risultare fuorviante perchè troviamo nomi cresciuti musicalmente in California ma anche provenienti da New York, dalla Florida, dal Canada, o addirittura dalla vecchia Europa. Cantanti, compositori e gruppi di estrazione musicale diversa ma tutti con il comune denominatore di un suono tipico degli anni '70, un suono sofisticato creato da musicisti e produttori dell'area californiana che ritroviamo in molti dei dischi in questione. Di ogni artista presente nella lista viene inserita la discografia, a volte limitata ai lavori che hanno rilevanza con la musica oggetto del sito, una scheda degli album più rappresentativi e dei samples dei brani più interessanti, cercando di ampliare sempre più il numero degli artisti ed i lavori recensiti.
