Album Notes
What a soundtrack to modern life! This is quite a gem of a record and a hard one to classify. From its lush soul full orchestral forays to cool downtempo with transcendent ambient moments it flows seamlessly “down the Nile” so to speak. Each song is embedded with revelatory moments as if some sort of critical mass is achieved through skill and talent. The cello soars in the hands of Martin Tillman and Tom Vedvik provides almost a magical sonic landscape. Plenty of kind words appraised some of this material in its previous incarnation which is no longer available. It was released on Patrick Leonard’s (producer of Madonna and Pink Floyd) short-lived label Unitone, this time with the additional songs its even better. Several songs were used in the Michael Mann film “Ali” and other songs have been used during the Olympics and in several television soundtracks. Tillman is the cellist of choice in Hollywood after all and have played on over 200 film scores! He just finished up “Pirates of Caribbean 3”. He also performs his cello magic on some select shows with Elton John, like Elton’s 60th’ birthday celebration shows in Madison Square Garden and Wembley Stadium.

Luckily this material has been given a new life with this release and with great additional tracks like “tirego” and the starkly beautiful “blue ride” it’s a must have for all soundtrack aficionados. “Amadeus on The Nile” also have stellar performances of several top musicians like guitarist Gregg Arreguin (who played with Seal, k.d lang and Jon Hassell) and famed Cuban percussionist Louis Conte and more, it’s quite a find and by far exceeds all expectations!

A Movie Score for Mellow Moments
Some CD's get in your face and demand your attention. This one does not, but it calmly feels the quiet corners of the room. The cello on "Odessa" soothes. "Amadeus on The Nile" transports the listener to the wide, slow delta. "Blueride" reminds me to take a deep breath again. The CD returns to a deep and rumbly cello piece with "Rue Sibelius". This CD invites listeners to take a breather from their busy days and unwind.


Amadeus on the Nile
I really LOVE this music! The music is soothing and I listen to Odessa and Amadeus On The Nile tracks when I am practicing my yoga. Nothing On My Mind is a groovy piece and lets me imagine I am in a different exotic place. I am not a musician but the cello and guitar make a wonderful combination.
