9:11 Blues
Oxingale Records, 2015

Composer: Toby Twining

Cello: Matt Haimovitz

"In "9:11 Blues," Toby Twining has written a very human and expressive work, one that uses microtones -- those notes in between the cracks of a keyboard -- to make the cello sound like a frayed-voice singer wailing in pain and protest." - Chris Pasles, The Los Angeles Times

Cantaloupe Music, 2011

“The music has such immediate appeal and is so emotionally expressive that the album can be appreciated by traditional listeners willing to dip their toes into music from off the beaten path, as well as die-hard fans of the avant-garde. Highly recommended.” —Stephen Eddins,
