ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
These tracks were composed by Stew as the score for a live production of Shakespeare's comedy by Shakespeare On The Sound, a not for profit theater company that produces outdoor Shakespeare in Norwalk and Greenwich, CT (please visit www.shakespeareonthesound.org for more information about the show).This show was performed in June and July 2009.
The score was enthusiastically received by audience and critics. Charles Isherwood, The New York Times theater critic, wrote in his review of the show:
“Changed into an ass by the mischief-making Puck, the hapless Bottom howls out an achy, lowdown song set over a classic riff, finding in his transfigured form the eloquence that eludes him — despite his loquacity — when he’s in human form. This delicious, unexpected moment is one of many in which Stew’s subtly modulated music adds fresh seasoning to this summertime favorite. When Titania and Oberon set aside their grievances at last, their passionate embrace is met with a burst of electric guitar. When Lysander awakens, charmed into love for Helena, a surging swell of music signals the new groove in his heart.”

Such Sweet Stew
Stew's artistry never ceases to amaze and impress. Here he wraps the Bard's words in folk and blues and jazz and beyond. Buy this CD, dust off your copy of the play, and push play. Not since Duke Ellington's SUCH SWEET THUNDER has Shakespeare sounded so good.
