Description:
All of the pieces on this CD are realities, not fantasies or dream like statements. They are born out of a pluralistic vision, not a singular one. Many of them are based on pre-existing situations as well as compositions. The bassoon and the accordion are the perfect catalysts for this reality dimension due to their "virtual" abilities to be whatever they need to be.

Archipelago - the original Georgian folksong used in Werner Herzog's Nosferatu, is presented here in world dance beat mix, with six bassoon tracks.

Harbor Lights - was inspired by Kuuskmann and Schimmel's first meeting at the Cape May Music Festival in New Jersey - a seaside resort. It also pays homage to Laurence Welk, Bert Kaempfert and James Last.

Samba Di Gamba - brings Brazilian carnival in sync with Mardi Gras making it, making it a double-whamy party number.

Autumn Leaves - a chanson; a pop hit; an art song; a classical piece all in one is presented here with its original long form intro a masterpiece in itself.

Tantric Bartok - employs and deconstructs his great concerto for orchestra.

Peppermint Twist - is a sped up cover of the 1962 Joey D. and the Starliters classic used in the film. Hey! Let's twist!

Stairway To Honey-A Taste of Heaven - combines teh Jimmy Page/Robert Plant-Led Zeppelin classic with A Taste Of Honey, giving it a new synergy.

Chamanuet in G Minor - fuses the minuet and Argentine chamame forms together with a famous Beethoven melody.

Piazzolla/Getz - is based on an actual tango by Astor Piazzolla as well as actual performance by him with tenor sax great, Stan Getz.

Walk On The Wild Side - is a reality on the Elmer Bernstein classic, recollecting the big band arrangement by Oliver Nelson featuring the jazz organ great, Jimmy Smith. All this on bassoon and accordion.

Windmills Of Your Mind - is a nordic rendition of Michel Legrand's 1967 hit classic written for the Thomas Crown affair.
