Cinematic and impressionistic, Art of Time Ensemble's 'Ain't Got Long' is a vastly different kind of listening experience / Midwest Record

With its sixth inimitable album Ain't Got Long, the Art of Time Ensemble – Canada's genre-busting ensemble that fuses high art with popular culture – welcomes a distinctive gallery of guest artists to reimagine ten of the most arresting and unforgettable songs in the contemporary experience. Ain't Got Long is streaming worldwide.

Singers Madeleine Peyroux, Gregory Hoskins, Jessica Mitchell and Sarah Slean join the Art of Time Ensemble, led by its founder/artistic director Andrew Burashko, on the new recording, reinterpreting songs that range from the Gershwins' "Someone to Watch Over Me" to Radiohead's "Exit Music (for a Film)." Composer Jonathan Goldsmith, who created the settings for each song, is also the album's producer.

The MIDWEST RECORD writes....Cinematic and impressionistic music that doesn't hide behind artistic pretensions keeping it real and up front throughout. The sounds are densely layered, the guest list plentiful and the chops always intriguing. A vastly different kind of listening experience, you can call this a sure bet for when there's nothing new on Netflix that floats your boat.
