Ghost Train Orchestra released our fourth album last month, Book of Rhapsodies Vol. II, a collection of reimagined miniature symphonies from the late 1930s and early 1940s. You can order it on Amazon, iTunes, or our online store.
We're excited to be returning to Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola at Lincoln Center on Tuesday January 2nd to celebrate the release of our new album Book of Rhapsodies Vol. II. Dizzy's is one of the best sounding venues for jazz in the city and we hope you'll join us for this rare performance of music from the Book of Rhapsodies series.
The new album has been getting great press. Read some below. You can also hear a recent interview I did on Radio Winchcombe UK on the history of the band and Book of Rhapsodies at this soundcloud link.
"What makes all of this music work are Carpenter’s total dedication to the arrangements, his love of these bygone composers and a sense of pure, joyous fun...the only thing better than listening to this music is hearing it live." -- Frank Alkyer, Downbeat
"The voices add a lush new dimension...sassy, funny, and sometimes quite beautiful...an outstanding piece of work" -- Jerome Wilson, All About Jazz
