|Geoffrey Castle and John Schussler Soaring, magical, solo electric 6-string violin.|
New World presents twelve original compositions by John Schussler and Geoffrey Castle, plus a stormy rendition of Ornette Coleman's "Lonely Woman" and a funky arrangement of several traditional Irish tunes in "Farewell to Inwood." Originally published as the Guarneri Undergound's first album, New World is now remastered to be clearer than ever, and features several tracks that have become audience and radio favorites.
"My friend, fellow violinist, and songwriting partner John Schussler and I have remastered the source of many of today's audience favorites. New World features a who's-who of the Seattle music scene (including Grammy-winning guitarist Eric Tingstad, studio and performance giants Ben Smith and Garey Shelton, Jovino Santos Neto, Dan Tyack, Jami Sieber, Mike Gordon, and more…I think it's the best ensemble recording project I've ever done. And now it sounds better than ever!" -- Geoffrey Castle
