Herb Barbee, Roots Music Report

"Live At The Alley Café" is instrumental Jazz at its best.
"Live At The Alley Café" by Sixteen Strings is instrumental Jazz at its best. Mike Choman, Bud Hellner, Glen Isaacson and Rodger Vandivort join forces to produce a sound that is lilting and soothing.
With Sixteen Strings, no vocals are necessary because they let the strings do the singing for them. The group is amazingly synchronized as they move buoyantly from note to note and then song to song. Each member of the group is an accomplished musician and they blend harmoniously and complement each other to the point of creating beautiful music indeed.
This is the kind of CD you can listen to over and over again and it compels you to sit back, close your eyes, relax and smile.
