Episode 073 - feat. Jesus Florido, Kari Tieger, Lyriel, Mary Lee Taylor

Jesus Florido - "Mi Negra"
Kari Tieger (feat.
Erin Quinton) - "Sonate D'Autumne"
Lyriel - "Regen"
Mary Lee Taylor - "Genesis"

Hello everyone,

Jesus Florido makes his second appearance on this program. A player of considerable distinction, this Venezuela-born violinist is equally at home in a classical setting as he is in a Latin ort rock setting. His latest disc Heading North is a fantastic disc that (so I have discovered) holds up very well listen after listen. The guy's amazing.

Kari Tieger returns for a third time on this program with a cut from her most recent disc Nos Mots. This francophone Rhode Island pianist regularly features string players on her recordings and thus - by my reckoning - makes her an honorary fiddler herself.

Lyriel is a group from German hardcore group from Germany that features a full string section. Loud and highly dramatic, this group will leave you smoldering in your shoes. This tune is from their latest disc Autumntales - a recording they are offering for free download from their website. Check it out!

Closing out the show is composer/violinist Mary Lee Taylor. She has been featured previously on this program as a member of the Upton Trio. This tune was recorded live on May 8 of this year in Camden, South Carolina.

Thanks everyone!
