Introducing Cello, the second solo recording by longtime Gourd cellist and producer Barry Phillips.

Cello's expansive soundscape features traditional and contemporary cello solos, duos, and trios gleaned from traditions around the globe and from eight centuries of music. The 15 tracks present instrumentation and arrangements of melodies from Western and Eastern Europe, Scandinavia and North America.

Barry Phillips (cello, mandolins, harpsichord and psaltry) received his M.M. in composition from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. He has been active in film composition, orchestration and conducting and is a woodworking fanatic as time allows. This pasttime led to the production of two of Gourds popular titles, Toolbox Classics and A Toolbox Christmas.
