Like what Mr. Miser said about your musical taste throwing him and me off a little... I had this vision of a man living in Montana, on a ranch, branding cattle, riding horses, growing crops, cleaning out stalls and dancing waltzes... wait, what?

Tallgrass - I thought you might have been reprising your Birdsong mix at first

It was actually the lead track on that disc for quite a while, but I ran out of room and wanted to focus it on women's voices.
The blend of clarinet, piano and violin of Heirloom Waltz made me thing of trading vocals

The VanNorststrand bothers are another theme that runs thru this disc—one or the other of them are part of Wake Up Robin, Buddy System, and backing on Julie's music. They were 2/3 of the now-defunct (and legendary) band Great Bear Trio along with their mom, Kim Yerton, who could use some help right now. Clarinet is by Rebecca Bosworth-Clemens, who you probably never heard of unless you've danced to Cardinal Direction, which hopefully you'll totally be able to do soon.
I imaging 3/4 time is the Official theme song in the Albini household

It might be if the missus was a bigger fan. Too many words for her.
Autumn Waltz conjured up visions of a ballerina on top of a wind up musical jewelry box

Normally the words "Windham Hill recording artists" makes me hit the snooze button, but these two are a lot more interesting than usual. She (Lisa) plays harp and he (Aryeh) plays nyckelharpa, a bizarre keyed Swedish fiddle-like instrument.
The Rodney and Elvie Miller sounded familiar but I can't say from where

Rodney is a semi-legendary New England dance musician, so some of his music leaks into public broadcasting soundtracks and such. Elvie is his daughter.
Natalie McMaster could use a good bag-piper on this

Tune is actually Swedish, but has become very popular amongst Scottish musicians.
Leo's Waltz sounds almost EXACTLY like Warren Zevon's Don't Let Us Get Sick. Check it out!

Very cool! I half expected the Zevon tune to have a waltz beat, but alas.
Vocals from Wild Asparagus caught me off-guard after most of the instrumentals preceding. Very Nice!

They don't sing much, so it's a treat.

Guess it's time for the big reveal. Hope everybody's gotten theirs.



This was, in more ways than one, a pandemic project.
Firstly because there was no dancing, and that left a huge hole in my life. It also left a hole in both the lives and incomes of musicians.

I had started this project shortly after finishing my first collection of waltz music, which has become the one of my mixes I've given out the most copies of. So some of these tunes came into my life back when I could still sneak off for a three-day dance weekend and hear a new band. The collection grew slowly, a couple of tunes a year. Then cam covid.

Boy howdy did I jones for dancing, and all the bands and musicians I had danced to retreated to the studio or the podcast booth or Patreon to get some income and express themselves. So I bought a lot of music.

One of the biggest influences on my tastes and attention was Julie Vallimont, who was part of a duo we had hired for our local weekend and had to cancel on...twice. She started a podcast called Stars In the Rafters where she highlighted music and poetry from friends and colleagues in the dance world, and introduced me to a bunch of new artists. She is also one of a select few musicians who are really good at writing waltzes. She appears on (if I'm remembering right) four of these tracks, but her fingerprints are all over this effort.

Not many words. This is music with a purpose—moving dancers—but if you're in the right mood it works just to listen to. f you get up and dance, well...bonus.



The very first mix I received upon joining the RPMCC was a blend of dance music from you. I recall scratching my head thinking what the hell is this? Fast forward 10 years or so and your Waltz mix hits the CD player. I'd like to think my tastes have been refined as I move thru life and this was much more enjoyable than the first encounter. Odd juxtaposition is I usually listen in my truck during my work commute and hearing this while working thru NYC traffic is far different than how you experience the music. My thoughts along the way.

As always your contributions reach out and challenge us to expand our musical horizons. While I don't gravitate towards this genre it is certainly one I can relax and enjoy from time to time. This disc will be my new Go-To when that mood strikes me. Thank You!

Thanks! The more personal these discs are the more they risk alienating the audience, but if we have to err on one side or another I'd rather hear music people are passionate about than listen to neutral gray inoffensive ear candy.

The bands (mostly) make a living playing for contra dances. Most of what they play is a bit more raucous (especially live) but we use waltzes as cool-down laps before breaks, and as performance pieces. The others are classical (Ahn Trio, Portland Cello Project, Takehiro Kunugi) or Celtic traditional bands (Lissa Lynne & Aryeh Frankfurter, Abby Newton & Natalie Haas), with one odd duck, Chris Cunningham (who doesn't play for dances but he and his family dance) for good measure.

STEAM is (mostly) from Kansas. I first heard them at a dance in Ashland, OR. They are pretty big for a dance band 5 pieces) but I love their sound.

Chris Cunningham is a local singer/songwriter/recording engineer. This is from his first solo album, written when he was courting his wife.

I had  never heard Elsie Gawler before being introduced to this solo effort, tho she has been part of a legendary family band forever. I like vocals in waltz music and I wish more bands would stretch those legs.

Wild Asparagus is a dance supergroup that performs with as many as 6 members. They are pretty expensive so they only play really big events, but they are so worth it. Early is by Greg Brown.

And yes, that's Fred & Ginger. I doubt I could keep my composure meeting Ginger Rogers long enough to ask her to dance, but I'm sure she'd make me look good.


excellent flow and this disc is very easy to take in and absorb
almost all of it was new to me, yet i just sponged it up
the sort of disc you could hand to anyone of any age and they would appreciate it
feels like a sweeping soundtrack to an epic movie or experience
great job m


edit: just solidifies my mcc relationship

I figured I just wasn't into that genre of music enough to recognize the names, but finding out that they're special enough in their own way to make this concept collection means a lot. Thanks again!

"Tallgrass" by Steam. You put bird’s, crickets, bugs in songs and I will like the

"Dip and Sway" by Elise Gawler. More vocals. Very nice.
"Valse por Pele/ Early" by Wild Asparagus. Sweet.

Seems like a lot of Celtic influence going on here. Overall lots of Violins... not much Sax. I prefer the Sax.

Is that Fred and Ginger on the cover? I met Ginger once at an ice cream shop in Palm Desert.

Another fine add to the Club.
very good for a first time effort.
Though I'm sure this is not your first time!
And it sounded good. A
* I'm very familiar with Bill Nelson. Well, at least the Be Bop Deluxe days. I was turned on to Be Bop Deluxe by KROQ – FM – Los Angeles. Back then they really didn't know what to play. 
And I'm thankful for that. I have all of Be Bop Deluxe on vinyl and CD. Great add. * For some reason this song wouldn't play on my computer. But I'm familiar with this one. Thanks for putting this on the disc... even though I couldn't hear it! Thanks for reminding me I  need to add some Warm Jets to my playlist. * Always kind of fonda of Lorde. Nice add. Nice song. * Sleep with Todd and Joe. Really can't go wrong with these two guys. * Soul Coughing has always been on my list. Another nice add! * A Chicago song I'm not familiar with! Like the deep cut-ness of this one. B
* Not a all familiar with Brian Protheroe. Thanks for letting me about him. Will investigate further. * Some of my favorite songs are from this era of Elvis. Again, nice add. * Kevin Gilbert- Another artist I'm not familiar with. Thanks for including this song. * Stevie Wonder is one of those artist that most of his music I don't particularly like. But.. some of my favorite music is by him. It's an enigma, I tell you.
This is one of the songs that I really liked by him. Probably because I didn't get played to death. * Alaska Suite- At first I thought this was one of those quirky Frank Zappa tunes. Well, I guess all of Frank's tunes could be called that.
  It grew on me like the moss grows in Alaska. * That Manzanera Feeling sounds Pink Floydy. Not a bad thing though. I've never heard this one before. Thanks for the great effort you put in this disc.
My ears thank you.
 

slammed and i'd like to piggy-back on this sentiment
steely d turned me on to kevin gilbert and i've been a fan since
in fact when i think of steely d the first thing that pops up? the kevin gilbert intro

So weird to hear that some song didn’t play or that there was artifact. I did everything on GarageBand using it to feed one song into another which is why each Side is more or less continuous. Then, exported the entire song sequence to a .wav file and burned that to disc. But, lesson learned. Next time everything will be MP3 on a playable disk. Thanks for feedback; it was my pleasure.

I've had a disc I sent out to Scott that lost a song in the process.
I still try to check each disc I do because of that.

I forgot to mention how I liked your flow of songs. Just like a radio station that flows a song right into the next one.
I do have the option with I Tunes to adjust the spacing between songs. I think I'll shorten the spacing my next go round.

So weird to hear that some song didn’t play or that there was artifact. I did everything on GarageBand using it to feed one song into another which is why each Side is more or less continuous. Then, exported the entire song sequence to a .wav file and burned that to disc. But, lesson learned. Next time everything will be MP3 on a playable disk. Thanks for feedback; it was my pleasure.
