Esopus CD #11: Advice

11_29.jpg

This issue’s CD concerns itself with something many people can never seem to get or give enough of: advice. We asked participating musicians to choose an item from an advice column or any other source offering some type of counsel, then use it as the basis for a song. Cicero once declared, “Advice is judged by results, not intentions.” Listening to the tracks inspired by these myriad reflections on the human condition, you'll likely consider them how-tos of the highest order.
