Album Notes
"Captivating and brilliantly arranged. This CD is in a class of its own. Relaxing one minute and uplifting and exciting the next. Love it, love it, love it. Words cannot really describe the music; it is a true original work of musical art."- Chris D., New York, New York

Scott and Racquel are married and raising their two beautiful, multi talented sons. This has slowed down their ability to record their massive catalog of original works (about 300 at last count), but they have managed to squeak out 3 CDs in the last 11 years. They have been recording together in studios in manhattan to nashville for 24 years and counting.

Classically trained musicians with BFA's in performance from Purchase College, they have always been eclectic musicians. Dabbling in jazz compositions, performing in rock bands (they met in one when they were 15 and 16 ("STAND-BY"!)), and sweating it out giving classical music recitals in Greenich Village, with their Manhattan Maestros ever correcting and honing technique, Racquel and Scott love to explore many music forms. "mindwanderings" features many of their jazzy, feel-good compositions, but is a completely intimate, NON-studio, live recording , done right at the piano in the living room. this little portrait of 2 composers playing for eachother's benefit has sold out twice on cd baby, and done well in digital sales all over the world.

MP3tunes.com had mindwanderings at number 1 on their easy listening charts for 7 straight weeks when it first was digitally available in 2005. It was also ranked the #1 bossanova album, and #1 jazz album that June.

CDbaby.com put the mindwanderings CD on their prestigious "recommended" {classical waltzes} list. (2005)

Swingsett records latest release features Racquel's compositions in the studio, fully orchestrated, performed and arranged by Racquel. "Baby Tuesday" is also being distributed and released by cdbaby.com ("Editor's Pick, Spring 2008 new age/ techno"- cdbaby.com)

Press release: Spring 2008

If one loves the melodies on mindwanderings, we hope you will try BabyTuesday. Racquel presents 12 tracks of her music - rich in harmonies, references, technology, with sometimes intricate and always layered arrangements. BABYTUESDAY is a bricolage approach...shuffling between favorite genres. The lines were painstakingly blurred between genres...in the doo wop piece you will find jazz progressions...in the techno dance piece there is a rock presentation of traditional verse /chorus. Please check it out and share your thoughts with us if you download or buy it, as so many around the world have already.....a million thank you to all adventurous listeners who have found us! ....www.cdbaby.com/cd/racquel

We love to know what you are thinking!

Press Release Summer 2008:

Swingsett records is currently working on our next CD, featuring Scott's compositions and a joint CD, both to be released in the next 2 years. Details to follow!

My favorite car tunes
It is not often I find music other than classical enjoyable in the car. I find myself bringing this cd in the house with me. I know every melody by heart at this point.
My favorite track is Carolyn's Waltz.

Jerry and Lynn

A delightful collection of music! Easy listening, upbeat and would make a great addition to your CD collection!

Frank Walker

Sheer creativity & musicality have been always been the Tirrell's strongest points in the 20 years I've known them, aside from them being such amazing, supportive, & loving people I'm honored to know & love.

This CD proves that a 2 person jam in a living room can offer more beautiful music than you could hear in most of today's fully produced professional works & one I will always love & enjoy.

Hope this helps to spread the word for 2 people who should've been stars ages ago & who could still become such now!!!

This is great
This cd is great. It is nice, calm, and relaxing. It also has so many cool beats.

Christine B. DiFede

This CD is phenomenal; a must have!!!!
Captivating and brilliantly arranged. This CD is in a class of its own. Relaxing one minute and uplifting and exciting the next. Love it, love it, love it. Words cannot really describe the music; it is a true original work of musical art.


More than background music..Lifts my spirits without being intrusive. Melodies fit many moods. Very enjoyable!


Great Easy Listening
I find this CD very easy to listen to. It is great background music that is lively, and yet not overpowering!
I would recommend this CD to anyone who is interested in new sounds that are very catchy.
