This CD was a true labor of love. Tracked and mixed in eleven days it was the debut release for Casolando a band that was cited to be one of Chicago's top 5 bands to watch by Billboard magazine.
A tour de force of Irish Folk music from master harmonica player Jim Conway. Jim brought unrelenting energy to this project as well as a who's who of Irish musicians. Of particular note were guest appearances by Andrew Bird and harmonica guru Howard Levy.
Bring a drummer with a fantastic drum kit, a guitar player with a funky Silvertone guitar connected to an amazing Trace Elliot amp, and a suave bass player from Italy into the studio to jam and this is what you get.
Masterfully crafted by musician Alan Hinkhouse, Shrunken Heads is the perfect example of what can be achieved with some funky samples, great musicianship, unadulterated creativity and a taste for the bizarre. I dare you to come away from this CD without a smile.
