For Those in Orbit
Recorded in spurts throughout 2005, 'For Those In Orbit' is an adventure in modern American music dabbling in folk. Country and jazz. These song are also a reflection of my time spent living and playing music in two of our most musically iconic cities - New Orleans, LA and Nashville, TN. The Mandola is featured on this album quite a bit. Played by Bill Kelly, it is essentially a Mandolin, but a little larger and is tuned down a 5th. It lends a great bluegrass/country feel to songs like 'Sunburn' and a great counterpoint to 'California', which was just a bluegrass song that made a right turn into a jazzy bridge. We hope you enjoy the record. Please let us know! -Mike Roberts.
