Angels of Venice

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Carol Wright
Cymbals, drums, and hurdy-gurdy color the heavenly music of the Angels of Venice, famed buskers from California's Venice Beach. Celtic harpist Carol Tatum, the chamber ensemble's principal composer and arranger, adds additional pluck by doubling on hammered dulcimer, bouzouki, mandolin, guitar, and bass. Tatum's forte is medieval music, and her evocative arrangements of these ancient works are the album's showstoppers. "A Chantar Mer" begins hauntingly with chantlike vocals, then accelerates into a lively dance, egged on by recorder (Laura Halladay), hurdy-gurdy (Ethan James), and percussion. More familiar are covers of tunes by Yusuf Islam, Mick Jagger, and George ...

More familiar are covers of tunes by Yusuf Islam, Mick Jagger, and George Harrison; "Within You Without You" creates a hypnotic drone played by cellist Peggy Baldwin, with Indian-inspired spices of sitar, tabla, and violin. In addition to regular angels Joanne Paratore (piano and keyboards) and Christopher Pellani (percussion), this self-titled album also features many fine guest artists.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
The Angels of Venice's self-titled debut album features exotic new age music by the Venice, CA trio. Harp, flute, and cello intertwine in their compositions, which sound at once foreign and familiar.

    Outstanding!

    Lovely and lush, uplifting, driving and depthful¿this one has it all, and is one of my all time favorite recordings! The rich combination of Carol Tatum¿s harp, Laura Halladay¿s amazing flute descants, and Peggy Baldwin¿s cello with Joanne Paratore¿s keyboards and Christopher Pellani¿s Middle-Eastern style percussion gives a new twist to world fusion music. The arrangements by Carol Tatum are spectacular--full of mood, flair and texture, and ever-changing in delightful, unexpected ways. Some are original, while others are based on familiar medieval European tunes that have never seen such life before! All the musicians do some wildly virtuosic work here, taking turns like a jazz ensemble, and indeed there are many jazz-like elements to this music. Guest musicians include Sonja Drakulich of Stellamara, Azam Ali and Greg Ellis of Vas, Omar Faruk Tekbilek and Brian Keane. Three of the selections on this Windham Hill debut CD were recorded previously on the Angels¿ ¿Awake Inside a Dream¿, but the rest is new material, and the interspersal of the driving, exotic numbers with more lyrical pieces makes for a well-balanced listening experience, well worth having in addition to the predecessor CD. Don¿t miss it! If you like Angels of Venice, you¿re sure to also like Loreena McKennitt and the groups Stellamara and Vas.
