ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Azure trio is an exciting trio of flute, oboe and cello. On Acorn, we include pennywhistle, oboe d'amore, & English horn. With a repertoire ranging from classical to traditional American, Irish & other folk music, with original arrangements, this trio delights it's audiences. Located in beautiful south- central Pennsylvania, the trio sometimes travels to neighboring states & college campuses for concerts.
This CD is a pleasant mixture of folk songs & originals by Grammy- nominated composer Tom Reese. The originals were originally created for a story-telling show that we accompanied live. Our story-teller is Marie Wenger, and she is taking her show on the road right now. More Music: With the addition of viola, Azure morphs into a quartet called "Susquehanna" whose CD debuted at #3 on the New Age charts in July '01 (yes, it's available at CD Baby!). Tom & Laurie (flute & cello) also perform with The Reese Project (jazz) & Wyndfall (celtic & folk rock) - be sure to check their music out! ALL Cd's are available at CD Baby! Our players are multi-talented, not only playing several instruments, but our oboist, Marti Hess, is also a wonderful artist & did the cover paintings on the front & back of Acorn. She also did the cover painting for Susquehanna's CD, Conversations.
The Players:
Tom Reese: flute & pennywhistle. Tom brings a special blend of styles to his music, performing throughout the east coast as a jazz, celtic, folk rock, blues & classical flautist. Tom's warm tone lends a beautiful timbre to every performance. He also performs on a variety of global wind instruments, including ocarinas (clay whistles), the Lakota Indian flute, pennywhistle & others. Tom also performs with Susquehanna, The Reese Project, MuZette, & Wyndfall & free-lances in many other venues. Tom's compositions were nominated for a Grammy in 2002. See www.wyndfallrecords.com for more information about Tom.
Martha Pineno Hess: oboe, oboe d'amore & English horn. Marti received a B.S. in Art Education from Millersville University. In addition to Azure, Marti currently plays with ChromaTrio, Wyndwood, Opalessence & Susquehanna. Marti is executive director of Cygnet Studios, a non-profit arts organization in Elizabethtown, PA, where she teaches drawing, painting, pottery and oboe. Marti was nominated 1997 Best Performance Artist by Lancaster Sunday News for her "Heritage Portrait Series." You can see more of Marti's paintings at www.cygnetgallery.com.
Laurie Haines Reese: cello (just cello!). On the faculty of Lebanon Valley & Messiah colleges, Laurie earned a master of music performance degree from USC in Los Angeles & a bachelor's from the Univ. of Miami in Florida, studying classical & jazz. Laurie has free-lanced and concertized extensively on the east coast, in Los Angeles, Miami, Seattle, Hawaii, New York and Europe. An accomplished classical musician, Laurie loves the variety in performing jazz & folk music. She has worked with jazz trumpeter Ira Sullivan & the Spoleto Festival Orchestra. She also performs with MuZette, The Reese Project, Susquehanna & Wyndfall & free-lances in many venues. See www.wyndfallrecords.com for more information about Laurie.

Excellent musicianship
This CD of ancient and original music is warm and expressive. Great musicianship and delightful, pleasant sounds. I will enjoy this one again and again.
