A Vivoscene Feature Article by Brian Miller

vivoscene rating 9.5

The Canadian chamber music group Gryphon Trio is about to release Broken Hearts & Madmen, and the record is surely a contender for the crossover album of this young decade, as well as getting our vote for one of the great album titles of all time. With material from such a diverse crowd as Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen, Laurie Anderson and Lhasa de Sela, the record was made in a live-like atmosphere of complete takes and closely-miked quarters. The result is absolutely breathtaking in its attention to detail, with every note carved from their love of the songs and their obvious ease with each other.

Such is hardly the case in most attempts of classical musicians taking on disparate genres, but 2011 has been a year of musical surprises. The Ebene Quartet delighted us some months back with their audacious release Fiction, but Gryphon Trio surpasses that notable quartet handily. Several factors facilitate their success, among them the guest vocalisations of Patricia O'Callaghan and presence of jazz bass player and producer Roberto Occhipinti, a classically trained musician renowned for his work in Latin music, and who has toured with experimental hip-hop band Gorillaz.

Patricia O'Callaghan is no stranger to cabaret, Cohen, or classical. In fact, she's one of the best singers ever to come out of Canada. Born and raised in Northern Ontario, Canada at seventeen she lived in Mexico for a year as an exchange student. It was there that she had an epiphany one day and decided she should become an opera singer.
