American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Tom Cipullo's Long Island Songs, with poetry by William Heyen, are evocative and subtle. Nature figures large - Cipullo comments that Heyen's book brought back memories of his own youth on that island, a place without today's traffic jams and strip malls. Lori Laitman contributes the neotonal songs 'The Apple Orchard' and 'On a Photograph.' The latter is a prose poem about a perceived homosexual relationship between two young factory workers in an old photo. Richard Pearson Thomas wrote Far Off in 1991, a cycle of translated poems by Greek poet Constantine Cavafy. Again, neotonal, with some nice touches.
