by The Missing Parts

Imagine a string quartet playing bluegrass, or a metal band playing Argentine tango, unplugged: this is instrumental, acoustic music that stretches genres to their breaking points, and then stitches it all back together.

Album Notes
In the spring of 2011, in the Sonoran Desert just 60 miles north of the Mexican Border, Tucson Arizona's most unusual string quartet gathered in a century-old church to record their second album. The group, consisting of violin, cello, lap steel guitar and acoustic guitar, writes original music through a process beginning with improvisation. Out of hundreds of ideas, the finest are selected and woven together into carefully articulated musical landscapes.
Classically trained violinist Oliver Blaylock complements Douglas Francisco's self-taught lap steel (slide) guitar work to provide a pair of very different virtuosic lead instruments. Guitarist Paul Wright's intensely percussive style of guitar playing is joined by Brian Hullfish's lyrical cello to drive the fast songs to a frenzied pace and lull the sleepy, delicate laments to a restrained dignity.
Because improvisation is such a big part of the creation and performance of these songs, the entire album was recorded live in order to capture the music's spontaneous, living nature.
