String Quartet Tribute to Tori Amos Delivers Haunting Interpretations

Vitamin Records is proud to present Precious Things: The String Quartet Tribute to Tori Amos (VIT-8541) due September 11, 2001.

Precious Things: The String Quartet Tribute to Tori Amos is a transcendent suite of instrumental renditions, a sophisticated homage to an inspirational songwriter whose confessional and enrapturing songs have served as guideposts for many listeners.

Tori Amos is renowned as an eclectic and experimental artist whose music is imbued with her wide influences, merging her classical instincts with the pulse of rock music. She has often integrated string arrangements into her artful and melodic tunes, fusing their hypnotic ambience with her energetic piano virtuosity. Precious Things focuses on this atmospheric spirit of Amos' work, the vibrant timbre and evocative tones of violin, viola, and cello remixed with subtle electronic vibes and grooves. Precious Things includes a four-panel booklet with photographs of the beautifully crafted dolls of Pat Kochie, a devoted fan and artist who has been deeply inspired by Tori Amos. The complex string arrangements were performed by some of the finest players in the world and the addition of subtle electronic flourishes was provided by LA's Transient. Available in record stores, online, or by mail order at Vitamin Records, P. O. Box 39439, Los Angeles, CA, 90039-0439. The suggested list price is $16.98.
