ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
We present to you our first collaboration with our friend and amazing lyric baritone Robert Sims, who we began working with in early 2008. Collaborating with a vocalist is something we hadn’t really considered much until we heard Robert’s incredibly moving voice and his inventive take on early African American spirituals. We were eager to see what would result. Brian went to work on arrangements that could work for both the quartet and Robert, and together, they came up with a collection of songs that blew us away.

Among them is Leonard Bernstein’s “Simple Song,” a piece commisioned in honor of JFK, a Delta blues-style rendition of the traditional spiritual “Two Wings,” and a haunting and beautiful arrangement of Bob Dylan’s legendary “Blowin’ in the Wind.”

The GGQ/SIMS ensemble had our debut performance at Martha’s Vineyard in July, 2008.
