Ponzi Piece: Re​-​Boot #1

by Al Margolis

Ponzi Octet 09:09


A reboot of the Ponzi Pieces. This time with quartet and octet versions. Ponzi Quartet #3 features 2 tracks of N.B. Aldrich on guitar, Al Margolis on violin, etc and Steve Norton on alto clarinet. The octet uses qt #3 and adds Kevin Cheli, percussion and mallets, Tom Law, electronics, Ron Anderson, electric guitar, and Mike Watt, bass guitar. Ponzi Quartet: Version CLAW then stands alone and becomes the new seed for the next versions. Confusing - well, yeah...
