>as some of you may know, i am a virtuoso on the tambourine. i have a side project that is all original work written for and mostly played on the tambo. 15 tracks of pure magic. some of the beats, rhythms, and melodies will get stuck in your head for days. thats right i said melodies. if you, like most people, think that you cannot play a melody on a ‘rine, you have not listened to big D and the piss shivers. me and the shivers spent a year honing our sound, spending time with everything from hippie drum circles to belly dancers to hari chrishnas. we recorded this 82 minute epic in 5.1 surround sound so we invite you to sit in the middle of your home theater, turn down the lights, spark some incense and something to relax with, close your eyes and let us take you on a journey, a journey to mystical places and magical lands. i am very pleased to have for you today the finished cover made by renown german artist claus cleatus van volkenburg. enjoy.
