FLY AWAY by the Rosenthals (AM-CD-5127). Phil Rosenthal, former lead singer and guitarist of the Seldom Scene, and author of songs recorded by Johnny Cash, Bill Monroe and Nick Cave, has teamed up with his son, acclaimed trumpeter/singer/songwriter Daniel Rosenthal, to create a totally unique and engaging new album. Over the last year, the two have written and recorded new material with lyrics by Phil, and music by Daniel, who trained at the New England Conservatory. They have also recorded several exciting new arrangements of traditional songs. The results are a beautiful new album, featuring unusual instrumental pairings and rich vocal harmonies, blending bluegrass, jazz, folk and more.
