Album Remarks & Appraisals:

VinylCello brings the first three "BTC" commissions, by renowned composers Tod Machover, David Stanford, and Luna Pearl Woolf, together with Haimovitz's new arrangement of Jimi Hendrix's 'Machine Gun.' Performed by Uccello, Haimovitz's all cello band from McGill University, this war song with an epic electric guitar solo becomes a concerto for solo cello and seven cellos.
