The Olympians - The Olympians
The project is the brainchild of vibraphonist and pianist Toby Danzer, who dreamt he was asked to tell the tales of ancient Greek gods. Toby's accepted the challenge, and chose to fulfill it via instrumental soul music with the assistance of some of New York's best musicians. And the results are fantastic -- vibrant, evocative soul music that manages to connect with the listener despite the absence of any spoken words. Pazner and company set the stage, provide the backdrop and inspiration, and let your mind paint the rest of the picture. It is indeed digital magic, my friends, and you owe it to yourself to give The Olympians a try.
In addition to Toby Pazner, The Olympians are Thomas Brenneck, Dave Guy, Leon Michels, Micholas Movshon, Homer Steinweiss, Michael Leonhart, Neal Sugarman, Aaron Johnson, and Evan Pazner.
