"Bold Tattoo", the second release from Cliff Boulder (a.k.a. Ted Cobena, Jr.) continues with lush, atmospheric soundscapes but now the highlight is on percussion. An assortment of hand drums, chimes, tambourines, cymbals, gongs and the trap set were used to help create these 11 melodic instrumentals. Even the name of the CD is rooted in drumming. The word "tattoo" is defined in The American Heritage Dictionary as...."a signal sounded on a drum..". Sailboats and soul searching, silence and serenity are all themes woven into the fabric of this bold tattoo. As the CD progresses, the listener is transported on a journey to the stars in space, through the eye of a hurricane, and to the depths of the sea. One will visit with the elephants of Africa, feel a warm desert wind and experience a sunset in a far away land. As Cliff says, "With music there are no boundaries". So open your mind, hear the music, and let your imagination take you to places that only spirits dwell. Enjoy.
