James Annett: viola
Azure Carter: song and voice (aja5)
Alan Sondheim: viola, various

What's better than one viola? Two violas! No jokes,
honestly, the melding of the instruments is amazing.
James plays sparsely with every note conjuring up
scale and unmarked territory; I tend to fill in my
breathing with more breath, to the choking limit.
Azure sings beautifully; we worked with one of the
older songs. I love these pieces; he extends the
saz scales with viola, crawls all around the Cminor
harmonic harmonica, roams while the voice sings
song. Against the saz, the viola has no equal -
clearly it's one of the most beautiful instruments
around. Enjoy, if you have the time.
