Description

Fronted by acclaimed violinist Jeremy Kittel -- formerly of the Grammy award-winning Turtle Island Quartet -- contemporary string quintet Kittel & Co. has announced their ethos-centric debut album 'Whorls', out April 13 via Compass Records. Inhabiting the space between classical and acoustic roots, Celtic and bluegrass aesthetics, folk and jazz sensibilities, 'Whorls' is an 11-track compilation of visceral, yet precise musicianship -- accompanied on one track by the ghostly harmonies of Sarah Jarosz.

Kittel demonstrated a similar scope as a composer-arranger-collaborator for such diverse artists as My Morning Jacket, Yo-Yo Ma & the Silk Road Ensemble, and Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn. Now, the Brooklyn-based artist has built his own repertoire of music for a wholly original new group.

Comprised of Kittel, mandolin phenom Josh Pinkham (named "the future of the mandolin" by Mandolin Magazine), genre-bending guitarist Quinn Bachand (a presidential scholar at Berklee College of Music), transcendent cellist Nathaniel Smith (as heard with Sarah Jarosz and Kacey Musgraves), and hammer-dulcimer wizard Simon Chrisman (acclaimed for bringing a new tonal flexibility to the instrument), Kittel & Co. captures a sonic landscape that is equally as unpredictable as it is captivating.
