ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
For high quality folky Latin jazz played on acoustic, stringed
instruments, you really can't go wrong with this album. An eclectic
mix of mandolin, violin, Rhodes, guitars, pandeira (a type of drum
with tamborine jingles on it), a multitude of other percussive and
melodic devices bring these vibrant tunes to life. "Theoretically
Speaking" is not only a marvelous display of dexterity from Eva Scow
and Dusty Brough, but also would be great practice for music students
to try to play along with. It's highly melodic but not distracting,
while serving as testimony to the skill of the players. And while
many of the songs stay mostly in a fairly Latin-based milieu, songs
like the "Gypsy Wagon Crash", explores the gypsy sound that Django
fans will love. What makes this album unique is its captivating blend
of genres, part folk, part jazz, part Latin, part gypsy, and wholly
individual when you put it all together. Fans of Pink Martini and
Buena Vista Social Club will find something to love here. CDBABY


An Intricate fusion of jazz, Brazilian and classical music that speaks
to the best of each genre, SHARON BY THE SEA features the amazing
talents of Eva Scow ( mandolin and violin ) and Dusty Brough ( guitars ),
two rising stars on the west coast acoustic music scene.

On SHARON BY THE SEA, Eva and Dusty have surrounded themselves
with a group of musicians whose adventurous spirits match their own, including
bassist Kevin Freeby, percussionist John Martin, Javon Davis on keyboards and
Mark Summers on keyboards.

Honoring the tradition of their musical roots while exploring the boundaries of
improvisation, Eva-who has performed and recorded with such legendary artists
as Mike Marshall, David Grisman, Edgar Meyer and Bela Fleck-and Dusty- whose
resume ranges from work with artists as diverse as Jesse Cook and Michael Buble
has designed a unique landscape of melody and rhythm, rich in atmosphere and
texture.

Very Cool-- It swings!!
Great virtuoso acoustic music!! This is string band stuff at high level, constantly entertaining. I agree with other review about the use of Latin rhythms/riffs and the kinda 'bluegrass-meets-Hot Club of Paris' ideas, & just
the way the album flows. Nice balance between melodies and extended improvisation. Bravo!!
