Product Overview

A new CD of classical compositions by the mastermind of Zony Mash, The President, Pigpen, the NY Composers Orchestra and countless other bands. Blending a profound knowledge of jazz and popular musics with a soaring lyricism and arranging/production skills that have graced CD's by Bill Frisell, Eddie Palmieri and Peter Apfelbaum, the compositions here blend abstract expressionism with a touch of the blues. Imaginative and seductive music for strings with an organic sense of structure and unity by a founder of the downtown scene.

ReviewSource Alternative Press
Review The delightful mix of tones and textures is almost a sufficient reward in itself, but Horvitz is also a damn fine musician with an ear for a groove. This disc is way more happenin' than most of the techno on the racks right now.
