ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Two-time Grammy nominee bass-baritone Edwin Crossley-Mercer is joined by tenor H. Stephen Smith and pianists David See and Jason Paul Peterson in these virtuosic performances of Michael Linton's settings of Cody Franchetti's poems. Best known for his appearances in the documentaries "Born Rich" and "The One Percent", Franchetti's poems range from volcanic bisexual eroticism to Apollonian philosophical speculation, an emotional cosmos the singers embrace with tour de force performances of electrifying music.
