Turn It Around on CD

These are songs that, in some cases, I have lived with for a long time--others are quite new. The songs are eclectic--Check out Mark Nelson's fabulous jazz-inflected soprano sax work on 'Roll That Stone Away, 'A Gracing Maze,' (none of Mark's searing solo appears on the brief mp3 clip, unfortunately) and 'The American Way' (soprano sax and harmonica duet, anyone?). 'Roll That Stone Away' also is underpinned by Uli Koester's cello line. Dave Michel's bass lines are in both of these are of special note: for their melodic sense in the former and their rhythmic pulse in the latter. For straight ahead rock-n-roll, listen to 'TV Weatherman' or 'Finite Pie.' (The former features Mark Nelson's dual sax lines; in the latter, his down-and-dirtiest tenor punctuates the economic disequilibrium of free-market forces). Linda Breitag's fiddle duets with Mark's sax on '(I Didn't Know) I Had a Hero,' a reflection on the untimely loss of the Wellstones and Tom Lapic, as well as my Fried Chris Parry. Linda's fiddle also figures prominently in 'I Always Find You' as well as my diatribe against the Protestant work ethic, 'Circles Around the Sun.' Mark Kreitzer's fiddle graces the folk and country-folk of 'We Could Go to Denmark,' and 'Homeward.' Hear more of Mark's multi-instrumental talents with the Mark Kreitzer Band, available elsewhere on cdbaby.com If you lean toward acoustic folk, take a listen to 'The Itinerary' (Matthew Zimmerman and Bob Smithson build up the layers of percussion; Ray Makeever swings low on the flute), the instrumental 'Clearwater,' or 'Heading for Obscurity.' __ 'Turn It Around' references the changes brought by loss, political change, changes in the weather, changes of scenery, and musical changes. Metamorphosis, metanoia, metaphor. Just like it takes readers to complete a book, it takes listeners to complete a recording. I had a great time making this CD, with amazing contributions from fabulous musician friends. I hope you enjoy completing the collaborative circle as a listener. Recorded at Wild Sound Studios, Minneapolis. Special thanks to Matthew Zimmerman, recording engineer, producer, and drummer. Tim/Gus.
