Palimpsest (artist release)
cdRoots Code: rwm-3cw
I am pleased to present the newest recording by this little known but wonderful trio from England.
You'll hear some strains of this music that will remind you of Spiro (with who they share a member) or the late, great Simon Jeffes and The Penguin Cafe Orchestra, but there is a much wider, deeper range of music here, an original streak the evokes landscape and sky.
"Standing Sun Fanfare"
"Shadows of the Chalk Hills"
"Roads of the Sky"
"An acre of watery light"
Three Cane Whale is a multi-instrumental acoustic trio based in Bristol, UK, featuring members of Spiro, Get The Blessing and Scottish Dance Theatre. As intricate as a team of watchmakers, as spare as a mountain stream, the music encompasses both a cinematic sweep and an intimate delicacy, in which "the aroma of muddy leaves and old nettles is almost tangible" (The Observer).

Please note!Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
