Rio Bravo

by Nighthawks

/
  • The Nighthawks are back with their sixth studio album which is entitled “Rio Bravo”. The title is very suggestive and the music does not disappoint. Dal Martino and Reiner Winterschladen conjure up atmospheric scenes in the listener’s mind delivering the perfect soundtrack to match the spell-binding images. Music in true Cinemascope. It was not by chance that the Nighthawks story started with a film music assignment in the mid-1990s while Winterschladen and Martino were part of the Cologne-based combo ‘Trance Groove’. With unfailing instinct, they named their new band after Edward Hopper’s best-known picture. Hopper’s late night scene, with its compelling light effects and palpable sense of urban isolation, is clearly reflected in the ambient and emotional depths evoked by the Nighthawks’ impressive ambient, dub, pop and jazz fusion.

    On “Rio Bravo”, one can hear echoes of “Citizen Wayne”, Dal Martino‘s and Reiner Winterschladen’s 1998 debut album. “As the name “Citizen Wayne” implies, our common denominator lay somewhere between an atmospheric trumpet drifting through rainy urban streetscapes and Western film sets featuring white-washed Mexican churches and red dust. “Bronco Suite” on “Citizen Wayne” was inspired by Western soundtracks.” Both the urban vibe and the Wild West have also made it onto “Rio Bravo”, an album whose relaxed, playful character reveals two musicians at peace with themselves.
