Tapestries for Small Orchestra

Bill Dixon: Tapestries for Small Orchestra
Firehouse 12 Records
New Haven, CT

The work that we produced with Bill Dixon at Firehouse 12 has been released.

Those of you that follow this blog may remember the journal I kept here during the recording process.  Response so far has been strong.  Check out the review by Trevor Hunter at AMC's New Music Box.  There is a sample of the music at this link.  I suggest you purchase the product directly from Firehouse 12 Records to maximize artist and label profits.  A tip of the hat to the LEF Foundation, without whose essential support we may not have accomplished this important new work.

The music is a delight: singular and, as Bill would say "not for everyone."  This is music for orchestra, wonderfully drawn and passionately delivered. The DVD opens a lovely little window into Bill's creative processes.  We hope to mount a small tour of the project early in 2010.  Stay tuned for details.
