Bit of Light
A 14 track compilation of some of Tobin Mueller's best songs. Styles range from tango to jazz fusion, yet always seem to gravitate to contemporary/progressive folk (as one reviewer said, 'a Dave Matthews vibe'). Varied & inventive arrangements paint a compelling, intimate portrait of the artist. Features: Entcho Todorov-violin; Donny McCaslin-soprano and tenor saxes; Bill Barner-clarinet and tenor sax; Thor Oliverson-bass/guitar; John Luper-electric guitars; Woody Mankowski-soprano sax; Twon-backing vocals and Martyn Kember-Smith-fiddle. Tobin's vocals are authentic and unabashedly honest. His lyrics are poetic and impressionistic. He has an uncanny knack for letting the music say what is between the words, as if every line is a duet with an unseen spirit. Their are countless ghosts on this eclectic, cross-genre recording.
