"This new Phillip Bimstein recording follows his very popular Garland Hirschi's Cows Starkland CD, which was widely praised, generated hundreds of calls to radio stations, and was anointed 'a cult classic' on NPR's All Things Considered. Noted composer John Adams wrote the CD's introduction, commenting that Bimstein 'has an enviable knack for choosing spoken narratives that reminds me of the filmmaker Errol Morris.' This accessible 'alternative classical' CD offers three portraits of: the elderly harmonica-playing Larkin Gifford of Springdale, UT; the philosophizing dice-caller Tom Martinet of Las Vegas; and the charming beer vendor Robert 'Bushy Wushy' Logan of St. Louis. There are also two attractively melodic instrumental works." (label info)
