ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ralph Carney has a new musical project! A veteran of many musical campaigns (sideman for Tom Waits, B-52’s, Oranj Symphonette; film music for Jim Jarmusch and David Lynch), Ralph is at it again, this time doubling as bandleader and horn-blower nonpareil. And with every bite you take of Ralph’s new project, you get goodness on a bun, GUARANTEED!

And why is Ralph's music so tasty? 9 out of 10 musicologists we polled said it's the unbridled joy Ralph unleashes with every toot and honk from his arsenal of horns. (The 10th musicologist was unavailable for comment at press time.) This is jass music in its rawest, most unadulterated form. This is not music designed to tickle anyone's fancy; nor is it polite parlor music from a more genteel age - no, this is music that transports one's soul to another, funkier realm where souls go to funk out and groove when they’re not being constantly monitored by their ids and super-egos. Most of the songs on the disk have to do with love, or clouds, or boogey-woogey-woogeying, or backtracking, or other such sublime subjects. None of the songs concern themselves with unpleasant things like home foreclosures, exorbitant dry-cleaning bills, or bedpans. Because no one wants to funk out to a song about a dry-cleaning bill – that would be ridiculous! For this project, Ralph has fortified himself with a crack San Francisco rhythm section, Ari Munkres on upright bass, Michael McIntosh on da keys and Randy Odell on drums and bongos. – they are a pulsing and driving rhythm section sensitive to their leader's fantastical musical wanderings. But enough with all these words - the only way to experience Ralph’s music is to listen to it and taste the goodness on a bun for yourself!
