From rock to jazz to world music to folk and back to rock, the trajectory of Brooklyn based Tall Tall Trees has come full circle, or more precisely, full moon.
On the night of a lunar eclipse in December 2010, the band began recording its second album in a church nestled in the sticks of Woodstock, NY, emerging two weeks later with an album that marked a significant evolution in their electric banjo-driven sound. The result, m()ment, is a departure from the quirky bounce of their self-titled debut and a journey into deeper and darker waters as multi-instrumentalist/songwriter Mike Savino explores more serious and personal matters in this set of lyrically driven songs.
Produced by Savino, along with guitarist and keyboardist Kyle Sanna, bassist Benjamin Campbell, and percussionist Mathias Kunzli, the album is a snapshot of a band in peak creative form, crafting album as art in a one-off mp3 world.
