Need some new tea music? Already weary of Cat Stevens' "Tea for the Tillerman" or "Tea in the Sahara" by the Police? There's a guy here in Chicago, a clarinet player named James Falzone, pretty interesting fellow — and on Aug. 25 he's releasing an album called "Tea Music." It's the debut of his three-year-old working quartet, KLANG. The music, however, doesn't fit so harsh a moniker ("klang" in German actually just means "sound" in general). The press release transmitted today claims: " 'Tea Music' takes its name from Falzone's penchant for drinking tea while composing." He's got some samples on his site, but we encourage you to start with this track, called "China Black":
Listen here to "China Black" by James Falzone!
