Village Voice – Concert Preview (Rodeo Bar, 11/8/09)

The Chandler Travis Philharmonic

by Richard Gehr

Kitschy, excessive, rambunctious, and unfettered, Cape Cod songwriter Chandler Travis’s immodestly named nine-piece group is not unlike a classic-pop reflection of the late Sun Ra’s Arkestra. That being said, Travis recently released a rare and unexpectedly sincere solo album, After She Left, and will surely stir some of its darker and subtler shadings into his outfit’s reliably entertaining and often volatile mix.
