STRING PLANET

Songs From the Home Planet

2008-06-13

String Planet is Novi Novog on viola and Larry Tuttle on the Chapman stick. They played together for fifteen years in the band Freeway Philharmonic. Now, they've formed String Planet and their sound is...instrumental fusion? Sometimes it sounds like Stephan Grapelli, sometimes like something from Bela Fleck, sometimes like average smooth jazz or even muzak. The songs are hit and miss. The best ones being the re-make of the Sergei Prokofiev piece, "Love For Three Oranges", the Edvard Grieg piece, "Anitra's Dance", and Camille Saint-Saens' "Carnival of the Animals". A couple of coll originals are "Big Pig Jig" and "Pepe the Circus Dog". Reviewed by Rebecca Ruth
