Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Ivan Ashford, Avery Bargasse, Cameron Brown (vocals); Andre Burke (violin).
  • Audio Mixers: Blake Leyh; Andy Kris; James Bevelle.
  • Arranger: Doreen Vail.
  • Along with the more concise, hip-hop-oriented BEYOND HAMSTERDAM, 2008's AND ALL THE PIECES MATTER presents music from the lauded HBO TV series THE WIRE, a complex drama that focuses on life in urban Baltimore. Among the many tracks on this eclectic collection, which draws from all five seasons of the show, are multiple versions of Tom Waits's "Down in the Hole," the program's opening theme. While the Waits original dazzles with its fire and brimstone, the Five Blind Boys of Alabama give the song a warm, Southern gospel veneer and teen vocal group DoMaJe impart a contemporary R&B vibe on its rendition. Other highlights include Solomon Burke's soulful "Fast Train" and Steve Earle's rootsy "I Feel All Right."
Professional Reviews
Uncut (p.103) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his musical collage weaves snatches of dialogue around rasping blues, stubble-chinned rock and downbeat hiop hop, including much of Baltimore's unsung rap scene....A thoughtfully assembled and satisfying sonic patchwork."

The Word (magazine) (p.110) - "Like the show itself, this collection moves seamlessly between different cultures, with Steve Earle butting up agasint Tyree Colion's 'Projects,' a track whose brutal cinematic vision of Baltimore's urban housing could have come straight from the pens of the series' writers."
