ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Graham Reynolds of the Golden Arm Trio has composed the soundtrack to the upcoming film A Scanner Darkly, starring Keanu Reeves and Robert Downey, jr.

“Brilliant...No album in recent memory has ever included such an array of timbres, styles and instrumentation and still felt like a cohesive opus.” -- musicwhore.org

“The second album from the Golden Arm Trio finds sole constant member Graham Reynolds expanding his already formidable stylistic range to new eclectic heights while retaining his ear for strong, memorable melodies.
Is there anything this man can't do?” – Austin Chronicle

"Classically neo jazzetic carnival music, this newest release from Graham Reynolds' Golden Arm Trio, featuring the Tosca String Quartet, is an excellent specimen of contemporary progressive scoremanship. With an entire ship load of musicians, packing everything from vibraphones to tubas, and all the strings in between, creating a 19 song compilation of intriguing compositions, sometimes beautifully serene, other times darkly morose..." -- Proper Gander

"ONE OF THE TOP TEN AUSTIN ALBUMS OF THE DECADE" - Austin Chronicle.


About the Tosca String Quartet:
“Aside from the formidable Kronos, it is hard to think of another contemporary string ensemble that is as versatile and bold in its choice of repertoire, venues, and collaborators." -- San Antonio Current

The Tosca String Quartet has performed with Willie Nelson, Ray Charles, Lyle Lovett, Page & Plant, Ray Price, … And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, and John Cale. They also appear on the Dixie Chicks Grammy Award-winning album, Home, and have worked extensively with David Byrne.

Excelente
Fácil de escuchar, agradable, novedosos y con mucha energia. Pueden satisfacer con creces a los que les gusta el jazz, la música clásica, a los fans de Nino Rota, y a muchos otros. Son la muestra de que fuera de los grandes circuitos hay excelentes músicos haciendo grandes músicas.
Me encantaría verlos en directo.
Mis felicitaciones a Golden Arm Trio y compañia.

More beautiful than a deserted road at rush hour that sprouts pansies singing lullabies, and harder than a heroin selling granny with more tattoos than teeth (in a melodic fashion, of course). And also weirdly wondrous and such. I wasn't sure whether I should laugh and sprout wings like a buzzard, or freak out and dial a therapist, so I did both. Bravo! Encore!

Benjamin Fagin

A great and creative album.
This CD is an eclectic mix of instruments and styles. It was a really fun listen and I'm even more excited now about their other cds!
