UNCOVERED is an album of classic rock tunes, re-imagined and re-contextualized through the lens of my cello. A cover tune can be an homage to the original, but these “uncovers,” in new startling arrangements by the album co-producer Evan Ziporyn, attempt to do more — to evoke the unprecedented power of the music of Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, Janis Joplin, Howlin’ Wolf, King Crimson, Muddy Waters, and AC/DC as musical masterpieces and as totems of our collective consciousness.
