Near and Far

by Dick Weissman

I am very excited about my new CD: near and far. There are 15 tracks of music, including three songs, and one instrumental with scat singing! Mollie O'Brien did the scatting, and she also did a great two part vocal On the song Oklahoma (carry all my tears away.) The new album also has oboe, English horn, oboe d'amore (an alto oboe,) soprano saxophone, electric bass on cuts 2 and 3, and drums on track 3. I played banjo, (big surprise!) nylon and steel string guitar, electric guitar, 12 string guitar, piano and tiple, and did a little bit of singing.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This collection of music, is largely instrumental with three songs, and one scat-singing vocal by Mollie O'Brien. Mollie also sings "Oklahoma (carry all my tears away)." That song has a full rhythm section, with piano, bass, drums, harmonica, electric and acoustic and 12 string guitars.

There are three instrumentals that include banjo or guitar with oboe, English horn, and oboe d'amore (an alto oboe.) Mirch Imori plays the oboe-related instruments. Noah Peterson makes a return appearance on soprano saxophone on "Too Much Rain," and "White Men At Eagle Pass." There are several guitar pieces, one dedicated to Scott McKenzie, and another for Artie Traum. These are intricate instrumentals in odd tunings.

The banjo tunes vary from flamenco-flavor to a boss nova tune with a ragtime chord progression, and a scat vocal by Mollie O'Brien. Dick sings a couple of songs, one with Harry Tuft and Mollie O'Brien, and there's an improvised 12 string guitar piece. The last track tells the story behind each tune.
