ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Seattle's Black Cat Orchestra has played for bars, weddings, silent films and cafes since 1991. They perform old pop songs from the Mediterranean, Eastern Europe and Asia and elsewhere, with a dreamy and cinematic feel.

This album was recorded on the stage of the Capitol Theater in Olympia, Washington, and contains eleven songs, including rebetica, Turkish rock, an Italian aria, a ballad from the movie "Mothra," and a song recorded by Carmen Miranda before she visited the United States.

CD Baby


Having seen them live in Portland, I can attest to the energy and conviction they bring to their music and the personal commitment threaded through their group musicianship. Combining the spunk of alternative klezmer, the common accessibility of folk and the educated artistry of classical, the Black Cat Orchestra delivers mischievous little gems with one hand open to wit and the other hand clenched in drama.

Bruce Lomet (CHINASKI)

A Worthy Addition
Suffice to say, you have never heard music quite like this original fusion of rock beats, Eastern intrumentals, and dreamy vocalizing. Black Cat Orchestra carves out a new space in the music pantheon and deserves much credit for it's sublime efforts. This CD is a worthy addition to the collection of the open minded music listener.
