MMMM – Catch Bees – Newman’s Open Choir

Featured track is “Atlanta” featuring Denison Witmer

I just finished listening to the entire record, start to finish, as I promised Philip Waggoner (Sunshine House) I would.  This is his official solo debut.  This early in the year I want to temper my enthusiasm, knowing there will be excellent albums to come — but DAMN … this is one very very fine album… thoughtful, sentimental, open, moving … everything on here is top shelf, grade A, masterful.  I can see too why I was asked to listen beginning to end; it is really well sequenced, and stands up well for the nearly 47 minute long journey.   There are plenty of “singles” on it for those of us in radio to get excited about – but it’s one hellova an excellent long play too for a Saturday afternoon.
