Recorded in a mere three days in Tony's home studio, Come Around has the intimate, intuitive, one-take atmosphere that only the closest-knit group of muscian/friends can achieve -- a precisely executed yet still spontaneous sound. Erstwhile drummer Kenny Wollesen, is supremely subtle and supportive, providing a superb backbone for Chris Brown's unfurling Hammond licks and the serpentine chimes of Tony's guitar. Tony's brother Peter rounds out the core group on string bass. Throw in the contributions of cellist Jane Scarpantoni (Tricky, Beastie Boys, REM) and Bill Frisell and you have a cast that can literally, legitimately be called world class. All of the extended concepts and techniques gleaned from Tony's work in the more adventurous corners of the NY music scene are here, but deployed in service of a stunningly fine-tuned pop sense. Scherr is able to capture that rarest of vibes -- music that references genres (country, rock, soul, blues, and jazz are all there) implicitly, and thus manages to sound utterly un-derivative. Tunes such as Stuck it Out; the Gram-worthy In My Hands; Sacramento, a lilting lullaby for avant-banjo; and the standout title track -- like Dinosaur in a dogfight with Tom Petty's Heartbreakers -- should be hits in any universe. Tony Scherr- Voice, Guitar / Peter Scherr - String Bass / Kenny Wollesen - Drums / Chris Brown - Hammond Organ
