Product description

Product Description

This is Basquiat Strings' spectacular follow up to their 2007 Mercury nominated album. Part Two is a feast of sharp close harmonies, twangy grooves, sonorous wailings, and bold moments of freedom. Essentially an extension and development of the first Basquiat Strings record, it creates an alternative string sound using rhythmic drive and improvisation, while aiming to be as cohesive as the classical string quartet, and as natural as string ensembles prevalent in European and Arabic folk music. The album is a culmination of two years of rehearsing and performing made possible by the 2007 Mercury Awards nomination. This new album very much embraces the classical background of these unique players, who have also been deeply informed by the jazz tradition. Other musical experiences of the band's members include tango, contemporary classical, trad jazz, samba and alternative. This time round, the compositions were created with the collaboration of drums in mind from the start, so they are more integrated into the overall sound. Although Part Two is perhaps more mature, it was produced very much in the same spirit as the first album. The material was extensively re-worked and developed throughout the two years, allowing the group to become thoroughly acquainted with its peculiarities. Many tunes fell by the wayside before a core set of tunes materialised strong enough to record. The result is a musical work in which both the individual tracks and the album as a whole stand up well to repeated listening.
