ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
the pickPocket ensemble makes music at the crossroads: Inspired by many world folk and instrumental traditions, from Eastern European and Balkan, to Klezmer, to North African and Mediterranean and even Contemporary Classical. the pickPocket ensemble blend together these inspirations and more to create a beautiful music that is both hauntingly familiar and surprisingly fresh and new. The music of the pickPocket ensemble has been called "soul-wrenching" for its evocative and passionate expressiveness. For its ability to communicate across cultures, the pickPocket ensemble has been termed "una banda del pueblo para el pueblo."

"If you only knew how good this act is... the pickPocket Ensemble is a band from San Francisco founded by accordionist and composer Rick Corrigan. They play a certain style of music that can't be found anywhere, not even in the geographical areas they claim their music to be coming from. Middle eastern? Gipsy Music? let's call it pickPocket style. If I Were A Highway is their best production and it should be looked closely not as a pop phenomenon nor as a potential world success, but just as beautiful music with no boundaries of any kind. "Prague" is a gipsy dance tune that recalls those Czech Republic cafes on the street where beautiful women are trying to steal your heart as well as your tourist-ass-wallet. "Valls" is a conection to spanish-peruvian waltzes, arriving softly on our ears. Once again, where's Sony, Nonesuch or Telarc? Can't they sign this band already? The world needs this band ASAP." - Javier Moreno, review on Amazon.com
