New Whirled Order
Schmidt ties jazz, Celtic, folk, Americana and storytelling together with her commanding voice.
I have listened over and over and each time there are new revelations, new beautiful turns of melody and chords...Claudia Schmidt is a beloved musical treasure.
New Whirled Order is the definitive album of Claudia's career. Her first new studio album on Red House in over a decade, she has fashioned a genre of her own, seamlessly blending folk and jazz, much like Nina Simone did in her day. Featuring an ensemble of great players including master guitarist Dean Magraw, New Whirled Order is an adventurous and wonderfully produced album from one of folk music's most profound songwriters and performers.
