Naomi Moon Siegel – Shoebox View
With support from the community of her Seattle home, Naomi Moon Siegel presents an eclectic soundscape with Shoebox View (2016).
Siegel plays trombone, and on selected tracks, piano, ukulele and keyboard. Other musicians are Sean Woolstenhulme, electric guitar, acoustic guitar and banjo; Wayne Horvitz, piano, organ and Wurlitzer; Eric Eagle, drums and percussion; Keith Lowe, upright bass; Alex Guy, viola; Ivan Arteaga, alto saxophone; Michael Coleman, Wurlitzer and synthesizers; Thione Diop, percussion; Jefferson Rose, electric bass; Andrew Vait, synthesizers; Jacques Willis, beat production; Greg Sinibaldi, baritone saxophone; Steve O’Brien, trumpet.
“Punta Uva” is a tranquil piece. Siegel opens the song accompanying herself, trombone and piano. After the initial pass, Woolstenhulme joins. Followed by Arteaga. The incremental elements give the song a sense of growing depth and an aromatic blend.
