Al Rose - Pigeon's Throat CD


For his third album, Pigeon's Throat, impressionistic lyricist and vocalist Al Rose was again working with his band, The Transcendos, who provided the fascinating sound that won critical raves on his second album, Naked In A Trailer. The new album's eleven songs range from the re-written history of "Lincoln," the breezy feel of "Lighter Than A Feather," the rollicking "Ripe Unacceptable Now," the sound-noir of "Polish My Car" and an emotional ballad that sounds timeless upon the first listen, "Patience." This is further evidence of what the Chicago Tribune's Greg Kot called, "One of Chicago's most literate and engaging songwriters."

The Transcendos at this time included drummer Heath Chappell, bassist Steve Hashimoto, guitarists Victor Sanders and Maury Smith, and vocalist Laura Blye. Al is the center of the ensemble on acoustic and electric guitars with solo turns on harmonica and flute. The musicians joining them are organist Carter Luke, mandolinist Stuart Rosenberg, violinist Steve Gibons and cellist Diana Parmeter.
