CORKY SIEGEL & RANDY SABIEN
Fine and fun collaboration between two geniuses:
"There's a fine line between a genius and a madman and Corky walks it."

Stereophile Magazine says; " fantastic I've never heard anyone play harp with this much body and harmonic delicacy I guarantee you've never heard anything quite like it."
Corky Siegel has earned an international reputation as one of the world's great blues harmonica masters. He is a composer, blues pianist, singer/songwriter, and recent winner of the Lila Wallace/Reader's Digest/Meet the Composer's national award for chamber music composition and the Illinois Arts Council Fellowship Award for Music Composition.
Mr. Siegel's partnership in the renowned Siegel-Schwall Band, his performances as soloist with orchestras world-wide, and his collaborations with conductor Seiji Ozawa in bringing a ground-breaking blues-classical sound to national attention are all a reflection of Mr. Siegel's prodigious talent. Mr. Siegel continues to perform as guest soloist with symphony orchestras world-wide, which have included the New York Philharmonic, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Orquestra Metropolitana De Lisboa in Portugal, and most recently the Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal, the NHK Symphony in Japan, and the Philadelphia Orchestra with Maestro Charles Dutoit. In addition to ongoing tours with Maestro Dutoit, Corky has continued to perform numerous symphonic collaborations through the years with Doc Severinsen. Corky has also recorded on Sony International by touring globally from time to time through the invitation of Dr. Subramaniam, India's greatest Eastern classical violin virtuoso.
"Jazz violinists usually draw from one of two traditions. The best of both can be found in the superb Randy Sabien he combines classical technique and folk energy in a program that's still strictly jazz."
"The resulting sound is swinging, rocking, rhythmic and bluesy with a fiddle that often plays more like a saxophone than a violin. There are shades of Duke and Miles and you can certainly hear the echoes of the great jazz violinists from the swing era but above all, Randy is a product of his time someone who grew up playing the violin while immersed in the music of the 60s and 70s.
