Back in April 2011 I tuned in to "All Things Considered" on NPR (you can go to the NPR website and listen or download the show from 04/16/11 titled "Colin Stetson: Horn Of Plenty") and heard an interview and samples of Colin Stetson's new cd "New History Warfare Volume 2: Judges" (it is part 2 in a trilogy). I was BLOWN AWAY! The instrumentals were amazing in and of themselves, but then hearing about the recording process and how each song was recorded live in one take using up to 24 mikes in Montreal's Hotel2Tango amazed me. Finally I heard what was for me the highlight -one of the few vocal pieces "Lord I Just Can't Keep from Crying Sometimes." I saved up my pennies and ordered the vinyl LP (which comes with a copy of the cd) from his website. The cd is great, though if you have a good turn-table, the vinyl will blow your mind! It has much more depth. Obviously this music is not for everyone. If Milli Vanilli does it for you, then so be it. But for those a bit more daring and adventurous in your listening abilities, do not pass this offering up. And if you have the equipment to spin some wax, the limited edition vinyl is totally worth it!
