ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Here's an album of acoustic instrumentals that will take you to cool places. Featuring the amazing violin of Julian Smedley, the smoking mandolin and guitar of composer Topher Gayle, the solid grooves of bassist Chuck Ervin, and the delightful melodic flourishes of David Lange on accordion, this music is quirky, reflective, bluesy moody, groovy, and just plain fun!

Topher has been playing acoustic music for ever, and his many influences are evident here - there are Latin grooves, waltzes, bluesy feels, fiddle tunes, and middle-eastern influences.

Here are some unsolicited comments from folks (not relatives!) who took a chance on this CD:

"The CDs arrived. Thank you very much! I put in Fiddle in a Tree and immediately found myself dancing and smiling while I made my dinner. What uplifting music. Makes me smile a lot."

"I sure am enjoying your CD that I bought last Saturday. Big Smiles by the Barn really does bring a smile to my face."

"...... after a long wait, I have finally been able to listen to your CD today. My God, Topher, it's wonderful. It's on right now as I'm typing. I've been playing along, too. Delicious.

"During my first listen, I didn't have your CD notes in front of me.... I just listened, enjoying.... and also searching for the right words to tell you how it struck me. I came up with 'interesting, fun, evocative, groovy, quirky, and enjoyable.' Then I read your liner notes. Hah! Guess you accomplished your goal... and then some! I'd add brilliant, inventive, deep, and more. The music is so YOU."
