Just pretending you don''t see them, doesn''t mean they''re not actually there. Fresh on the heels of last year''s successful release "As Julia...", Fred Redekop (mandolin) and Jay Taylor (basses), are at it again with 14 more tracks of their particular brand of quirky instrumentals designed specifically for the bass and mandolin.
The Winnipeg Free Press called the "positively piquant instrumentals" of their first C.D., a "delightful listening experience" by a couple of "pickin'' powerhouses", while Uptown magazine referred to the tunes as "spry, lively,and always melodic".
"Just Pretend You Don''t See Them" is all of that and a little more. Incorprating elements of world music, pop, bluegrass, jazz and fiddle tunes, this duo have found a groove in their writing that maintains the character of the bass and mandolin instrumental, while allowing for more sophisticated and fuller arrangements and interplay including additional percussion by Greg Gardner.
Whatever it is, people seem to be enjoying it. As CBC Radio 2''s Jurgrn Goth said, "we''ve played it before and we''ll play it again becuase we like it"
