Joyful Noise: Disc Two
It's here! The second CD in Andy Monroe's 'Joyful Noise' series (created specifically for dancers and enjoyed by people from all walks of life, all over the world). Here are more of Andy's beautiful compositions---soulful piano, soaring vocals and an array of strings, horns, harmonies and colors. Working once again with percussionist Tom McGrath, Andy sets out to move and inspire the listener with a bold palette of moods and textures---from the infectious romp of HOPSCOTCH, HOEDOWN and GOSSIP to the hush of heartfelt melodies like WAVES, FIVES and DUSK and then back to the joyful world beat of MYTHOLOGY, TRIBES and INTERSECTION. It's a musical journey which is sure to become a part of the soundtrack to your life. Andy Monroe's sound has been compared to Pat Metheny Group, Belgian composer Wim Mertens and Brazilian recording artist Milton Nascimento. But the synthesis of these influences makes Andy's music personal and unique. 'It is rare and very special when you find a musician who moves you to dance with his music. Andy Monroe is just such an artist. Here is an invaluable collection...' ---Carla Maxwell Artistic Director Jose Limon Dance Company.
