"Sotto Voce is the brand new concept/group/album from the extraordinarily gifted, and wide-open mind of saxophonist/composer/songwriter Roy Nathanson. The group features his fellow Jazz Passengers Curtis Fowlkes and Sam Bardfeld, along with 'wunderkind' bassist/singer Tim Kiah and human beat-box/singer Napoleon Maddox of the Cincinnati hip-hop/jazz outfit Iswhat?! The album features six infectious new songs and/or stories by Nathanson, as well as an interpolation of Bobby Hebb's mid-'60s R&B/pop smash 'Sunny' and a gorgeous reading of great jazz composer Rahsaan Roland Kirk's 'The Inflated Tear' with new lyrics by Roy Nathanson. Roy Nathanson has spent the last 25 years composing and performing free & post-bop jazz with/for an assortment of odd punk, world and 'new' music projects coming out of the downtown NYC scene. He and Curtis Fowlkes formed the Jazz Passengers in the late '80s, mostly with members of John Lurie's late-period Lounge Lizards."
