PETER APFELBAUM is an extraordinary multi-instrumentalist and composer. He has shared his skills, taste and musicality with artists such as Don Cherry, Carla Bley, the Nigerian all-stars, Benny Green, Lee Konitz, Oliver Lake, Kenny Wolleson, Cecil Taylor, Nana Vasconcelos, Stephen Bernstein, Cyro Baptista, Trey Anastasio and Harry Belafonte, to name a few...
A visionary, galvanic composer like few others of his time." -CMJ New Music Report
There's no denying the deep musicianship of the leader and his band, but what's most striking here is Apfelbaum's genre-mashing ambition as he blends jazz with a host of world music influences to form a powerfully grooving sound that's... beatific: large ensemble, horn-heavy music that's tailor-made for the jamband set, yet free of the more cloying elements that often dog that genre." -All About Jazz
VIVA plays guitar like a flaming sword, a screaming train, a scratching chicken and a ringing bell. She sings like if Freddy Mercury had been a woman. She has performed everywhere from Bonnaroo with Cyro Baptista and Beat The Donkey, to The Monterey Jazz Festival with Peter Apfelbaum's NY Hieroglyphics. Her original songs roam the wild open spaces of Alternative Americana and she delightfully interprets artists as diverse as Loretta Lynn and The Clash. She combines a gorgeous sound with righteous feminine power, embodying the essence of outlaw glam.
Rock guitar...pinpoint timing"- The New York Times Viva's got a great voice. She rocks!" - Craig Street, Producer, k.d. lang
