More recent Torn

If I may, I'd actually like to recommend some of his more recent efforts,
though they are as sideman/producer. In particular, his playing on Brian
Gingrich's "The White Rim of Heaven" is tremendous, and the whole album is
well worth checking out. This album, along with the Robby Aceto "Code" CD,
and Caryn Lin's "Tolerance for Ambiguity" (both produced by Torn) are
available at most decent stores (though, not always, as we find out on a
daily basis) and direct from Alchemy (www.alchemyrecords.com;
800-292-6932). Yeah, OK, I'm biased towards them, but DT, as always, is
well in evidence on these recordings.

One with which I have no affiliation is the delightful pop record "Big TOp
Shop Talk" by McKinley. Torn produced and played all over this record. A
very cool effort.

Oh, and then there's the stunning "Discord" by Ryuichi Sakamoto. This is
the orchestral effort w/Torn and DJ Spooky creating atmospherics. Wow, what
a gorgeous record. Torn's buried in the mix, but it's still a great record.
