Editors’ Notes

Ben Sollee is a classically trained cellist who has worked on a wide variety of projects. He’s played in the Sparrow Quartet with Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn, recorded with My Morning Jacket, and released an album with Daniel Martin Moore (Dear Companion). Stylistically, Inclusions, his second solo release, is a country/folk/modern pop hybrid with a twist. Cello is the primary instrument here and that lends a distinct feel to the album. Whether he’s bowing or plucking it the texture is everywhere, and Sollee uses it in many inventive ways to support these carefully constructed songs. It’s haunting on the sparse “Embrace,” rustic on “Close to You,” and when backed by jazzy woodwinds, brass, and tympani on “Bible Belt,” it gives the song a mellow, late night feel. On “Cluttered Mind” the cello supports subdued banjo and bass clarinet, and in “Electrified” it’s used to create a funky, skittering groove. His lyrics are as interesting as the compositions, filled with compelling imagery and observations, making the album work on several levels. Inclusions aims for the head and the heart and hits both.

Customer Reviews

Ben Sollee Does It Again.....But Even Better!

This album might be Ben Sollee's best yet. His previous albums were near perfection but this one blows them away! This album is one of those great relaxing albums that you can put on and never skip a song and always be in a great mood. I would highly recommend this album to anyone who is a fan of folk music, Applachian music, or good music in general!

One of THE BEST MUSICIANS

I saw this guy in concert last weekend and he was great! His music just keeps getting better and better!

Incredible

Ben Sollee is simply amazing. The feelings he is able to inflict and wisdom he is able to impart with his lyrics and music are incredible, skillful, beautiful. I once believed that he was at his very very best with his previous solo album and his collaborative album with Daniel Martin Moore. He took Inclusions even farther! Simply amazing. Don't miss this album.
