AMERICAN ZEN features THE HIPPY COYOTE, previously hailed as "The Best Flute Player In The World," has spent the last two years playing drums. This is Coyote's first album as a drummer and it will impress audiences with songs like, "House Of Rejection," with it's jazzy psychedelic feel, and rock'n'roll songs such as, "All Around The World."
The two previous albums detailed The Coyote's struggles with Utah Mormons while living in Salt Lake City. This album, LEVEL 3 = I WANT YOU TO LOVE ME, is about the love affairs Coyote pursued upon his return to California.
Coyote's newest form of poetry has evolved into "BASS POETRY." After reciting all the poems for the LEVEL 3 album, Coyote thought he was done, but his 1959 Rickenbacker bass persuaded him to add up to three tracks of bass harmonies under all the poetry. Also recorded in one night, all the bass tracks behind the poetry transform this poetry into a new kind of song. Check out, "Civilized World,""Let's Go To Church," and "1,000 Sorrows For A Love."
