A new CD of classical compositions by the mastermind of Zony Mash, The President, Pigpen, the NY Composers Orchestra and countless other bands. Blending a profound knowledge of jazz and popular musics with a soaring lyricism and arranging/production skills that have graced CDs by Bill Frisell, Eddie Palmieri and Peter Apfelbaum, the compositions here blend abstract expressionism with a touch of the blues. Imaginative and seductive music for strings with an organic sense of structure and unity by a founder of the downtown scene.
