Soldier Songs

Released:
Label: Innova
Little is a composer and percussionist for the crack ensemble Newspeak -- and, on this recording, they're charged with bringing Little's first mini-opera to life. In telling a three-act tale about life before, during and after combat in the War on Terror era, Soldier Songs engages a fitting diversity of moods. Naïve jingoism ("Real American Heroes"), militaristic bombast ("Still Life with Tank and iPod") and post-traumatic stress disorder balladry ("Two Marines") are each given their due. The arrangements of stories told by real-life veterans contribute additional gravitas.
