ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Joyful life musical celebration Perpetual Motion – DANCE OF TWO SOULS: These two high-talent players, Josie Quick and Tom Carleno, are well known to us here… I’ve been reviewing their joyful life music for a long time now, most recently on their “Rear View” album (where they got very high marks – & over 1000 page visits)… it’s just wonderful to see a husband and wife team in musical celebration... On to the new release (it’s not due out until June 1st, 2019, so I will come back and add the samples as soon as I’m told it’s live)… the title track, “Dance of Two Souls”, certainly puts you in the mood for dancing ’round the room until the sun rises… Josie’s violin meshes perfectly with Tom’s gently swaying acoustic guitar style… I have no doubt that this song will be getting some MAJOR airplay ’round the globe!

They’re joined by some excellent players, too… Blake Eberhard: electric and acoustic basses and Christian Teele: drums and percussion (Christian plays Pork Pie drums and Bouillez Acoustics cajons)… you’ll hear them in all their musical glory on Josie’s lively original “Dos Gringos”… though a very short piece, it’s gives you splendid visions of the regions south of our borders… I just LOVED this tune.

Tom’s acoustic guitar intro on his original piece “Where Does The Time Go” segues ever-so-nicely into a wonderful musical portrait of the movement of time… in-time and on-time for every note, this song ABSOLUTELY merits an award!

Of the thirteen tasty tunes offered up for your own celebration, it is (hands-down) Tom’s original, “Por Causa de Voce” (meaning “Because of You”) that got my pick for personal favorite… the recording is flawless, and the performance is (truly) among the best I’ve heard (yet) in 2019 on this most enjoyable piece of music!

I give Josie, Tom & their players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99, for this rousing musical adventure. Get more information on their Perpetual Motion Site." -Dick Metcalf, Contemporary Fusion Reviews

MEET PERPETUAL MOTION: JOSIE QUICK AND TOM CARLENO
Name any great duo in the performing arts, e.g. Astaire and Rogers (dance), Hepburn and Tracy (film), Lunt and
Fontaine (theatre), and you will see they all share two things in common: talent and chemistry. Spend a few
minutes in person with Josie Quick and Tom Carleno, for example, over dinner, and you will see their unique and
undeniable chemistry as a couple, each playing off the other with the same quirky sense of humor, quick smile,
and easy-going nature. That same chemistry is instantly apparent when they perform live as well. Josie's violin
and Tom's guitar pirouette around the other in a delightful dance of in-sync simpatico. And when it comes to
talent, whether you see them in concert or hear one of their albums (as Perpetual Motion), you will hear more than
enough virtuosity to instill admiration and respect for their talent.
In the late '80s, guitarist Tom Carleno got the notion that adding some violin to his instrumental guitar music
might be a good idea. He and Josie Quick were already both teaching music lessons privately through a store, so
the pair "knew" each other somewhat. Nothing much happened until they attended a mutual friend's birthday party
where the two started getting to know each other a bit better. A few days later, Tom asked Josie if she would like
to collaborate on some music and she agreed. The rehearsal "date" was not really a date, but the two did discover
not just that they meshed well as musicians but also as friends. While it took a while for romantic sparks to fly,
their musical partnership flourished immediately and the duo Perpetual Motion began performing and recording.
As their time together grew, so did a budding romance and the pair married in 1992. Since then they have
continued to make music as Perpetual Motion and have released six albums (their sixth is the career retrospective,
Rear View, released in 2017).
Josie Quick initially pursued a career as a classical violinist—that is until her introduction to jazz during her
Bachelor of Music studies at the University of Denver. She become enthralled with the music of such luminaries
as Stephane Grapelli and Jean Luc-Ponty (her love of Grapelli was an eerie premonition of her eventual pairing
with Tom, since Grapelli is so well known for having played with guitarist Django Reinhardt). She sought out
opportunities to play jazz with local groups, but other than some demos, nothing much came of it.
Tom was drawn to the guitar almost by accident. As a youngster, at a family gathering, his cousin did a spot-on
imitation of Jose Feliciano and Tom decided he wanted to be an entertainer. Not having played a single note on
the guitar was no deterrent to the determined young man. He threw himself into practice with fierce abandon. It
was when he began taking lessons from Steve Mesplé (one of the founding members of the ground-breaking
instrumental group Wind Machine) that his music playing and composing really took off as Tom began perfecting
his fingerstyle guitar technique and started experimenting with different tunings.
Now comfortably ensconced in Denver, the duo has spread their musical wings even further. Besides Perpetual
Motion, Josie and Tom also perform and record with the prog-rock ensemble Coyote Poets of the Universe. In
2013, Tom launched his solo recording career with Perfect Imperfection, winning Zone Music Reporter's Best
Instrumental Album – Acoustic (Josie produced the album and played "spoons" on one track). In 2015, Josie
stepped way outside her jazz bubble and collaborated with synthesizer artist Jim Combs (who records as Sensitive
Chaos) on his album March of the Timeshifters, on which her electric violin loops elevate the electronic music
album into something truly extraordinary. She also appeared on the ZMR nominated Sensitive Chaos album
“Walking a Beautiful World” and three albums with keyboardist Timothy Wenzel. Both of them are in high
demand as session artists and each also teach private music lessons. While it may seem like that leaves little time
for much else, the pair are also die-hard Denver Bronco fans and attend as many games as possible during football season. In fact one might say that between recording, performing, and instructing (not to mention attending
Bronco games) Tom Carleno and Josie Quick are "perpetually in motion."
