Indescribable music.

"After long thought, I am a a loss to easily decribe the music on this CD.
So I'll try "infectious, charming and beguiling"
Could be the instrumentation. A barrell organ and 3 different clarinets.
Strange line-up, but what a unique and terrific presentation.
The players are fabulous and make these classical compositions almost sound like jazz.
There are 27 short pieces or "ditties" here from 1 minute to 5 minutes long.
Represented are Pierne, Milhaud, Poulenc, Goyone, Leroy Anderson,Satie and even Scott Joplin and Enrico Morricone. Also pieces from some of the group members.
Not easily categorized, but Fresh, exhilerating, bouncy, charming and downright uplifting and infectious.
Would be hard to listen to this CD without a smile on your face and a bounce to your step.
The Sound is in the Demonstration Bracket.
Full, clear and rich, with great front to back depth.
So if you are tired of the same old #*#* and looking for something Really different this is your ticket.
Recomended.
