Cello, Ben


Cello, how are you today? Ben Sollee would like to know. He'd like to extend his right hand in a formal offering of friendship. His left hand will be plucking the wobbly strings of a cello. His eyes will be closed. Don't be offended by this, he's only concentrating on expressing himself vicariously through the instrument and concentrating very hard on shaking your hand firmly, two shakes and release. He's got the market cornered on soul-filled cello-playing dynamos in the same way Andrew Bird has the same for violin. All I ask is that you, too, extend your right hand with your eyes closed and your heart open.

Listen:
It's Not Impossible
A Few Honest Words
[from Learning to Bend|buy]

Also, you can check out his awesome rendition of Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Come" in Blankets V.2.
