First review of the album: “Tamar of the River is majestically opulent.”
It’s a rave from Broadway World!
“…In TAMAR OF THE RIVER, it is the vocals that give the recording its majesty and opulence. Chants, improvisations, dissonance, rich chords, and so much more permeate the air, soul, and mind as the recording plays. The vocal compositions are complex and earthly, especially when performed by the ensemble that represents the river. Notes cascade, ebb, and flow in tumultuous succession, making TAMAR OF THE RIVER unlike most other projects. Listeners who have experienced the work of Dave Malloy will instantly draw comparisons to him. They will also draw comparisons to Steve Reich’s works, where repetition, layering, and convoluted musicality all add depth and surreal richness to his compositions.” Read the whole thing HERE.
Buy your copy on iTunes, Amazon, or directly from me (I’ll even sign it).
