" This christmas album - over two years in the making - was inspired by "A Circus Carol," our holiday theater extravaganza with the Wanderlust Circus. Take a festive journey with 3 Leg torso and our special guests and good friends, vocalist extrodinaire: Storm Large, Valerie Day, Scot Crandal, Noah Mickens, and guitarist: David Stassens. Let’s not forget our own T.J. Arko, stepping out from behind the drum kit in his singing debut with 3 Leg Torso, on God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen!
We have been an instrumental ensemble since 1996 and on this album we have been excited to add all these great singers to the mix. But what is the genesis story of 3 Leg Torso, you might ask? Well......
3 Leg Torso formed as violin, cello and accordion trio with the mission of creating original modern chamber music for their unique instrumentation. Over the following years, the ensemble has expanded both it's musical mission and it's size to become a quintet that now performs original compositions based on an eclectic synthesis of chamber music, tango, klezmer, latin, and Roma (Gypsy) music."
