Freakishly hot big band. Prepare to accompany on theremin.

About the Album

Book of Rhapsodies is an ambitious concept album of reimaginings of the work of four composers from 1935-1942 whose work straddled the line between jazz and classical music: Alec Wilder, Charlie Shavers, Reginald Foresythe, and Raymond Scott. Their music was unclassifiable, strange, beautiful, adventurous, and innovative. The album features the 12-member Ghost Train Orchestra plus a 6-member choir.
