Recensione album

Things have changed dramatically since 3 Leg Torso released their self-titled debut album in 1998. Back then they were a trio, and although original member and cellist Gabe Leavitt has since departed (he still appears on four tracks here), the group have now expanded into a quintet with the addition of bassist Michael Papillo, drummer Gary Irvine, and xylophone/percussionist Thomas Mackay.

All told it makes for a sumptuous album of many moods, each one unique and utterly enjoyable.
