Presented to today for your personal edification, your general cultural growth, your mind/soul expansion and deep fertilization. The Portland Cello Project, classically trained, well...cellists one and all. But they may have skipped classes here and there, and crossed the street, in a manner of speaking, into the indie and hip-hop world on the other side. As the title would imply, this is their homage to such urban composers as Kanye, Jay-Z, L'il Wayne, Talib Kwele and others.

These guys truly are amazing performers and their vision is fresh, alive and beautiful. They do metal and hip hop covers but also play Bach festivals. What's even better is the way they turn on crowds of all ages. The reaction is usually reserved for walls of amplifiers in stadiums, not artists like this. They recently performed Pantera's Vulgar Display of Power in its entirely in Portland recently and they SHREDDED (literally, their bows were shredded).

Classical, as applied to any art; books, poetry, painting, and music, is defined as transcending any fad or era. that is why Bach and Beethoven's music is still important today. That's why Bob Dylan's songs and his contribution to music were recently honored with the highest civilian award this nation offers. Piccaso was once just a new, pop painter, but his work came to transcend an era, an artistic movement. All things classical were once pop, once new. So where does tomorrows "classical" music come from? The Portland Cello Project may just be mining tomorrows classical music in exploring todays pop artists.

From thundering cellos and drums transforming hip-hop songs, to whispered melodies by contemporary composers, to hip-hop themes turned into baroque-style puzzles, Homage blurs musical genres and styles.

I love this group. Heard them in a free concert at our local library.
Sure wish they would have a tour here again. While I wait, listening to this cd is just the ticket for good music in my estimation.
