Not yet rated | write a review
Penguin Cafe Orchestra: Geoffrey Richardson (electric guitar, viola, pennywhistle, bass instrument, shaker); Neil Rennie (cuatro, ukulele); Gavyn Wright (violin); Marcus Beale (electric violin); Helen Liebmann (cello); Dave Defries (trumpet, flugelhorn); Annie Whitehead (trombone); Kuma Harada (bass instrument); Mike Giles (drums); Fami (drum); Trevor Morais (cowbells, hi-hat, wood block).
Audio Remasterers: Arthur Jeffes; Tony Cousins.
Bandleader Simon Jeffes composed the leadoff track "Music for a Found Harmonium" on a harmonium he found abandoned on a Tokyo street, which offers an inkling of the musical inspiration that sprang from this remarkable Englishman. As usual, he gathers a loose aggregation of musicians who create stunning, free-flowing acoustic sounds that defy categorization. Jeffes includes brass here for the first time on a Penguin Caf‚ Orchestra recording. Recorded over three years, the band's third album is worth the painstaking studio overdubbing by its leader, who died of a brain tumor in 1997. ~ Mark Allan
