Radio Purgatory: The Renaldo The Ensemble



Tipped off by our friends at 3-Legged Dog, we invited the members of The Renaldo The Ensemble to our studios for what turned out to be a musical romp with flashes of spontaneous revelation and the ongoing threat of slapstick. Led by guitarist/singer/writer and chief visionary Aldo Perez, the session also features singer/clarinetist and clown Jenny Lee Mitchell, drummer Matthew Talmage, toy percussionist Richard Ginocchio, tuba player Matt Muszynski, keyboardist Jonathan Roberts, and director Barry Goldman.



In this segment the group performs excerpts from their Fall 2009 production of the absurdist neo-noir radio circus and mystery drama play, Radio Purgatory. We also hear some music and bits from their ongoing show at The Living Room (their Halloween night show is recommended), and tracks from their CD Why Are You? which mixes indie-rock with Latin, opera, murder, intrigue, and advertising.

In this segment the group performs excerpts from their Fall 2009 production of Radio Purgatory (at Dixon Place, check that schedule). The play is a sort of absurdist neo-noir radio circus and mystery drama. We also hear some music and bits from their ongoing show at The Living Room (their Halloween night show is recommended), and tracks from a new CD release Why Are You? which mixes indie-rock with Latin, opera, murder, intrigue, and advertising (42 minutes).
