Product Notes

"If we build it, they will leave." So Sandra Boynton expressed her vision for this...oh, probably masterpiece. Produced by Boynton & Ford, and recorded in 2010 at Floyd's Symphony Hall under the unflinching direction of Michael Ford, "Boléro Completely Unraveled" is an overambitious full-length recording of Ravel's best-known work, as arranged for orchestra and kazoos. Three hundred sincere kazooists encounter this famous piece as best they can under the circumstances. No other recording so perfectly conveys the element of struggle in Ravel's mesmerizing composition. Struggle yes-yet eventually, maybe triumph. Maybe not. In any case, the exhilaration the audience must feel when at last the performance ends is surely monumental. A writer and cartoonist suddenly turned Concert Kazooist, Sandra Boynton has misunderstood music from a very early age. Michael Ford, a very patient man, is Boynton's frequent songwriting and producing partner. He is an accomplished classical composer and pianist, but oh well. Boynton & Ford have a Grammy® nomination for Philadelphia Chickens, which was a number one New York Times Bestseller. Three of their albums have been certified Gold by the RIAA: Philadelphia Chickens, Rhinoceros Tap, and Dog Train. If you would each buy several thousand copies of their fourth fabulous album, Blue Moo, that would help.
