ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Seattle-based MandoMorphosis is a collaboration among seven experienced mandolin players who have come together to explore the boundaries of new acoustic music. This is their debut record. This mostly instrumental music includes many twists and turns, ranging from high-energy tunes with traditional roots, to free-wheeling jams, to fresh arrangements of classical works, to daring group improvisations.

Skope magazine calls this CD "Musical diversity at its finest... these seven artists prove to be a creative force to reckon with. 2010 is a joy to listen to because it is refreshingly new music for the ears. 4.5 (of 5) stars." 

Seattle Weekly says, “MandoMorphosis' [2010] is far more melodic and controlled than a seven-member mandolin ensemble has any right to be… There's a vocal quality to the lead parts, and each track on the 60-minute–plus album feels like a different scene from a suspense film.”

Wildy's World calls the CD, "Intricate... energetic... intriguing... brilliant... I highly recommend 2010 for its varied musical styles and approaches, creativity and overall sound. 4 (of 5) stars."

Scott Tichenor of Mandolin Cafe says, "I want to be in this band."

The group's members have performed and recorded extensively. Most play multiple instruments, and you'll hear lots of dobro, violin, and guitar and mandolin-family instruments.

Performing on this record are:

Matt Sircely (Hot Club Sandwich)
David Tiller (Taarka)
Orville Johnson (Kings of Mongrel Folk)
Pete Frostic (Old School Freight Train)
Michael Connolly (Captain Gravel)
Adam Larrabee (Zoffer/Larrabee)
Scott Schaffer (Edge City Collective)
