ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The pickPocket ensemble has made an international reputation within the past 5 years for a spirited and original acoustic music that incorporates many kinds of inspiration: Eastern european folk music, Parisian bal musette, American folk and blues, even North African rhythms and melodic structures. If these sources of inspiration seem far afield afrom one another, the pickPocket ensemble has been able to create from them and more a unique vision that speaks with its own voice. The music is soulful and cinematic, at once familiar-sounding and fresh.

"Now on their fourth full length release, the Pickpocket Ensemble continue to pursue the Middle Eastern direction that they had begun to explore in their last outing If I Were A Highway (2003). The core lineup remains the same with frontman Rick Corrigan on accordion, Marguerite Ostrovski on violin, Tim Fox on guitar and assisted on a couple tracks by some additional clarinet and cello. Along with the increased concentration on pan-Mediterranean strains of music, the group has picked up a lot more confidence in their playing, taking more time to fully flesh out songs, with Corrigan, Ostrovski and Fox each taking turns with solos and building their counterpoint as they do. Further, more and more complex and interesting time signatures seem to be the order of the day on Fingerpainting In Red Wine. Interesting developments from an always interesting group."

"Es una banda del pueblo para el publo."

"...(The pickPocket ensemble)... choose to use their alembic to reinforce the commonalities of such diverse elements as much as they do to punctuate the differences. The result of course is just plain fine music that can only come from the pickpocket ensemble."
