ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A Song for All Seasons was recorded live at two Champaign, Illinois watering holes: Mike & Molly\'s (April 29, 1999) and The Highdive (February 20 & 24, 2000). The musicians of the Orchestra are The Viper (baritone ukulele, tiple, lead vocals), Riley Broach (double bass, trumpet kazoo, and vocals), Edward Burch (suitcase, other percussion, straight-but-not-narrow kazoo, and vocals), Rob Henn (trombone, trombone kazoo, egg, and vocals), and guest violinist/sawist Colin McKoy on \"Limehouse Blues\" and \"Whispering.\" The cover art is by Edward Burch, with photographs by Rachel Leibowitz, modeled on a 1960s LP of the same title by harpist Robert Maxwell (Decca DL-74609).
