Pretend you’re hanging out at the oldest Beatnik coffeeshop on the West Coast: the storied Caffe Trieste, where you can still see Lawrence Ferlinghetti (occasionally) and where practically anyone known as a “Beat” once sipped an espresso. V. Vale, whose father and uncle were “Beatniks,” provides a piano “bed” (E minor, D, C) for Will Rogers to sonically paint his amazing effects-laden guitar explorations, sometimes sounding more like a flute than a string instrument. Will definitely “takes you on a trip” into some kind of psychedelic sonic wonderland, til finally impresario Fanny Renoir brings the voyage down to earth after 7.5 minutes…
