Album Notes
Phil Lawrence's 1912 Gibson F2 mandolin freely improvises on traditional melodies from the American and Irish/Scottish folk repertoire as well as original melodies, but it is accompanied by two classical Indian instruments--the tabla (hand drums) and the tanpura (drone). The result is a blend of Indian sounding music and Americana fiddle tunes. Since the tanpura drones, there is no chordal progression, allowing the improvisations to wander without restrictions. Lisa Sangita Moskow plays the tabla--she and Phil Lawrence respond to each other's phrasing as the music develops in each tune. The highest quality Neumann microphones were used in the recording process, so the sounds of the mandolin and the tabla are as pure as possible. All the finest qualities of Phil's unique antique mandolin comes through with utmost clarity, and the close miking of the instrument allows him to use a very light touch on the strings that facilitates a gliding cascade of tones at key moments in the performances.
