Lament for Raymond Carver
We are six musicians in the Cleveland area who became friends and together account for four performing acts. The range is original and bop type jazz, strictly blues, acoustic spoken word with bass, percussion, oboe, harmonica/effects. This is original material ranging from dreamy vibraphone and piano, to industrial rock, to classical string quartet, to blues-jazz. Our combined age as mucicians in this area is 300 years ! Some of us attended The Creative Music Studio in Woodstock, N.Y. in the 1980's. We can just hope you enjoy this music - we perform it periodically because when we come together in this group, it makes for a wonderful experience. By the way, this music is loved and sanctioned by Raymond Carver's widow, Tess Gallagher.
