Synopsis

Product Description
Independent record label Mnemonic Records is proud to present Quintets an instrumental album of original music by Paul James de Benedictis, featuring string quartet, the improvisational work of noted piano virtuosos Ralph Grierson and Michael A. Lang, jazz pioneer Jeff Lorber, and a variety of soloists including such luminaries as Sussan Deyhim, Branford Marsalis, and Paul McCandless. The music was composed over several years, with some of the pieces being specifically written for the soloists. In Prelude the composition contains musical collaboration with singer Sussan Deyhim contributing vocal improvisations that were then arranged by Paul de Benedictis to form the complete work. On two of the compositions, Il Lago (The Lake) and Remember, Paul s boyhood friends who he grew up with in the 1960 s, perform: John Knox on piano and Matt Eakle, a 20-year veteran of the famed David Grisman Quintet, on flute. Quintets is mixed and presented in both stereo CD and surround formats. The package includes a DVD with Dolby Digital and DTS surround versions, along with audiophile-quality 96k 24-bit stereo. DVD-Audio 96k 24-bit disks will also be available. The musicians performing on "Quintets" include: Soloists
