David - It is exactly what I hoped it would be...great song selection, executed with feeling from great musicians. Thanks, Chris, for a job well done!!
Anne - You have a terrific CD with this one!
Steve - Gotta say your [violin] playing is superb and the audio quality in all ranges of your instrument is very nice.You swing and your work in the higher registers in so clean - it sings! I enjoyed the 'live in the studio' feel on Minor Swing'.
Pauline -It is very beautiful.
Boyce - Love your album
Gary - There are so many fine groups around St.Louis and this is one that I look forward to hearing soon. Very creative interaction between guitar and violin. Great tone on violin and a vintage Gibson archtop.

We've released a new CD. Contact us if you'd like to own one. You can preview some of these tunes at https://www.reverbnation.com/dizzyatmosphere  We're excited about sharing this release, recorded at Gaslight Studio.  https://www.gaslightstl.com/ .  This new CD is available in St. Louis area record shops Euclid Records, Vintage Vinyl and at Edwardsville's Trusty Chords.

Here's a heartfelt testimonial from jazz icon Jean Kittrell, describing Dizzy's show at the Sheldon in 2013:  "How proud of you I was last night.  It was my first time to hear Dizzy Atmosphere, and what a delight it was.  Chris, you are a fine MC and an incredible violinist.  Your guitarist is terrific, and your bass player gives you two excellent harmonic support and swinging rhythm.  He plays the part of piano, banjo, drums, with ease as your solid bassist."

Jon Ferber has been one of St. Louis most prominent proponents of swing, especially adept at interpreting and channeling the guitar stylings of Django Reinhardt. He has performed and recorded with Swing Set, the Orbits, the Lettuce Heads, the Erin Bode Trio and the Western Satellites.

Christopher Voelker has performed as a featured guest with Coco Rico, Fleur De Lou, Gene Lynn, and Swing Set, and has contributed to recent CD's by Building Rome, Michelle Isam and Elliot Ranney. He has played viola with the Diamond String Quartet and with orchestras in Boston, San Antonio, Kansas City and St. Louis. Earthy and swinging, his violin lends an air of casual elegance to this trio's sound.

Richard Tralles has performed and recorded with Miss Jubilee & the Humdingers, Vendors of Substance, Box of Nerves, Swing Set and Diesel Island as bassist, vocalist and songwriter. His swinging sensibilities, percussive solos and soulful singing have added significantly to Dizzy's harmonic and rhythmic substance.

Collectively influenced by an range of American (Joe Venuti & Eddie Lang, Stuff Smith), French (Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli) and Latin (Antonio Carlos Jobim, Xavier Cugat) recording artists, Dizzy Atmosphere performs a wide variety of repertoire.  They are the embodiment of  insouciance.

Dizzy Atmosphere has performed at the Missouri History Museum, the St Louis Art Museum, the Festival of Nations, Laumeier Art Fair, the Shaw Art Fair, the Whitaker Music Festival at the Missouri Botanical Garden, and at the Sheldon Concert Hall, portions of which have been broadcast by HEC-TV.
