The Exotica for Modern Living series continues with Mr. Ho’s Orchestrotica presenting it’s first quartet-sized album, Third River Rangoon. An original and modern exploration of chamber, jazz, classical, and world sounds inspired by the escapism of the 1950s exotica genre, led by composer, vibraphonist, and multi-percussionist Brian "Mr. Ho" O’Neill.
Featuring Albanian flute and bass flute specialist Geni Skendo, Japanese percussionist Noriko Terada (Flangia, Women of the World), bassist Jason Davis (Earthsound, Choro Democratico), and special guest Tev Stevig (Klezwoods, Kafana) on oud.
