The What Stick???

Many of you, I’m sure of it, have NOT heard of an instrument called the Chapman Stick.  I hadn’t…. until it caught my ear and hung on!

This is taken from http://www.stick.com:
“both of your hands are equal partners. As they approach the fretboard from opposite sides, your fingers line up parallel to the frets and a powerful new musical language emerges – bass lines, lead melodies, chords, and rhythm, simultaneously, and in any combination you desire.”

Now, I don’t know how many Chapman Stick players there are out there, and I don’t quite know how to gauge the level of talent on the instrument itself when I hear it, but, Bruno Pitch has to be considered brilliant!

Their debut album ‘Crystal Garden’ makes you want to encounter the duo during an afternoon/evening at a summer time outdoor music festival.  But, unlike many, who most would consider “jam bands”, ‘Crystal Garden’ offers real, solid enjoyment of their record just coming out of your computer or stereo speakers as well.

You want to hear something you’ve never heard before?  Then head to http://www.brunopitch.com/music.html and check out some excerpts, and if you like it as much as I do, download some of the tracks and be the first to tell your friends about Bruno Pitch, and just as importantly, be the first to raise their suspicion about this mysterious Chapman Stick!!
