The Sound Projector, the wonderful, British music magazine and radio show, posted a Rupert Loydell’s new review of “Rub,” my 2013 CD with Auris and Gino Robair.
Just in and out this week, a new CD recorded with the Auris Trio (Christopher Preissing, Julia Miller, and me) and renowned the San Francisco percussionist Gino Robair. Purchase yours on Public Eyesore or download a free MP3 version from the Pan Y Rosas netlabel.
The CD (PE 125) feature duos and quartets with the members of the
Auris Trio and Gino Robair, six tracks in all, recorded at ESS in 2010 by Alex Inglizian. It was exquisitely mastered by Neil Jendon. The artwork features an intaglio print I made in the 1970s. Lou Mallozzi wrote the album notes and Christopher Preissing designed the album art.
