cd cover Theodosii Spassov Trio
The Fish Are Praying For Rain

The trio of Spassov on kaval, Roumen Toskov on piano and keyboards and Hristo Yotzov on drums and percussion offers a masterful look into a complex fusion of Balkan roots and inspired jazz.


"like a jam session between Ian Anderson and Thelonious Monk" - Chicago Tribune

"The playing of the trio is a delight, with Toskov and Yotsov both supplying extraordinary sensitivity and chops. Spassov's kaval is blown, sung through, processed, overblown, and played every which way but upside-down. His interest in sound as music is apparent from his solos, but also from the tracks of urban and rural soundscapes which intersperse the CD, from the bustle of a Sofia train station to evening rain falling on a small village." - Michal Shapiro, RootsWorld

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.
