CD: Dollison And Marsh

Thumbnail image for Vertical Voices.jpgJulia Dollison, Kerry Marsh, Vertical Voices: The Music of Maria Schneider (artistShare). Dollison, the enchanting singer of 2005’s Observatory, teams with her husband and fellow vocalist Marsh in recreations of orchestral works by Maria Schneider. With flawless matching of intonation and through overdubbing that makes them a choir, they take Schneider’s pieces, with all of their complexity and ethereal beauty, into a personal dimension. Pianist Frank Kimbrough, guitarist Ben Monder, bassist Jay Anderson and drummer Clarence Penn–Schneider’s rhythm section–enhance the authenticity. Thoroughly of the 21st century, the music nonetheless often approximates the otherworldliness of Monteverdi madrigals.
