Home ARTISTS MUSICIANS MADE IN EUROPE FAVOURITE LINKS CONCERTS E-MAIL WEST COAST HOLIDAY MP3 SAMPLES

     La lista seguente cerca di elencare in modo esauriente quelli che sono i principali artisti west coast. Attenzione però, il termine west coast può risultare fuorviante perché non tutti questi nomi sono nati o cresciuti musicalmente nella zona di Los Angeles, alcuni sono di New York, o della Florida, o del Canada, o addiritura vengono dalla vecchia Europa. Possiamo perciò trovare autori di estrazione musicale diversa, con generi che vanno dal country rock (Eagles), al pop (Cristopher Cross), al soul (Brenda Russell), al funky (Earth, Wind & Fire) e alla musica fusion (Lee Ritenour), ma tutti con il comune denominatore di un suono tipico degli anni '70, un suono sofisticato creato da musicisti e produttori dell'area californiana, nomi che ritroviamo in quasi tutti i dischi in questione. Si può perciò dire che il termine west coast lo usiamo, forse impropriamente, per definire un certo tipo di musica che originariamente appartiene ad una determinata area geografica ma che poi si é sviluppata in modo ed in realtà diverse. Di ogni artista presente nella lista verrà inserita la discografia, verrà dedicata una scheda agli album più rappresentativi e sarà possibile ascoltare un paio di samples dei brani più interessanti, cercando di ampliare sempre più il numero degli artisti ed i lavori recensiti.
