death rides a horse
Arthur Vint & Associates new album, Death Rides A Horse, further explores themes from their debut album, Through The Badlands, this time focusing on the music of the great Spaghetti Western soundtrack composer Ennio Morricone. The band interprets music featured in the films A Fistful of Dollars, For A Few Dollars More, The Good, The Bad & The Ugly, Once Upon A Time In The West, Vamos A Matar Compañeros, and of course, Death Rides A Horse in their unique country/jazz style. Bandleader, composer and drummer Arthur Vint steps out in a new role of arranger, taking Morricone's often orchestral pieces and tailoring them for his 9 piece ensemble of harmonica, violin, saxophone, bass clarinet, electric and acoustic guitars, piano, bass and drums. Ropeadope Records will release Death Rides A Horse on Friday, July 14th.

When you see Arthur Vint you can tell he is from Tucson, and when you hear his debut album - THROUGH THE BADLANDS - you can hear the depth of his love for the west. But make no mistake, Arthur is in New York now, and he has the band to prove it. Rich Perry, Jon Cowherd, and Tony Scherr are some of the 'Associates' that Arthur has assembled for this record, and the quality is clear. Through The Badlands reminds us a bit of Tin Hat Trio, but with a strong sense of jazz and rock throughout. We're already hearing great things about this one from those who KNOW, and we hope that you will like it too.
