‘Shortcut Man’ is powerful, clever Shortcut Man by p.g. sturges; Scribner, 2011; 224 pages; $24

By Michelle Wiener Associated Press

Dick Henry is the guy people mean when they say, “I know a guy.” He gets hired to take care of things that would otherwise be tangled in bureaucratic or legal red tape. He’s the “shortcut man.” And he gets paid very well. In p.g. sturges’ Shortcut Man, readers are introduced to Henry as he forcibly evicts a delinquent tenant who refuses to leave his apartment, a violent job that he follows up by championing an elderly woman who’s been ripped off by a disreputable contractor.

When Henry is asked by multimillionaire porn producer Art Benjamin to shadow his wife and confirm she’s unfaithful, it seems like an easy task and easy money, until Henry realizes the woman he’s been hired to track is the woman he’s been sleeping with. This series debut by sturges, son of writerdirector Preston Sturges, sets up the promise of a classic noir story with all the familiar elements: the slightly amoral hard-boiled hero, the femme fatale and the menacing goons, all set

Memoir by Jordan’s king coming out on schedule By Hillel Italie Associated Press

NEW YORK — A memoir by Jordan’s King Abdullah II is coming out as scheduled, despite the anti-government uprisings in his country and elsewhere in the Middle East. Carolyn Coleburn, a spokeswoman for Viking, said Wednesday that Our Last Best Chance: The Pursuit of Peace in a Time of Peril will be released Feb. 22 in the U.S. and around the world, including Jordan and Egypt. The book is currently embargoed, Coleburn said Wednesday, meaning no advance copies are available. But it is billed as an “exceptionally candid” and “inspirational story” of how a young king “transformed what it meant to be a monarch”, in part by “going undercover to escape the bubble of the court.” King Abdullah, facing public pressure inspired by the revolts in Tunisia and Egypt, sacked his government earlier this week. He called for changes to boost economic opportunities and give Jordanians a greater say in politics. On Tuesday, Metropolitan Books announced it had moved up publication from June to April for a book by Mohamed ElBaradei, the Nobel peace laureate and Egyptian opposition leader. ElBaradei’s The Age of Deception: Nuclear Diplomacy in Treacherous Times, will come out April 26.

against the sultry, seamy backdrop of Los Angeles. And sturges pays off on all these promises, with interest. The action doesn’t so much unfold as it careens down perilously twisty roads as Henry learns he must end his affair with the woman he didn’t know was married, and find someone to take the fall for him. Shortcut Man is a glorious read: powerful, clever, suspenseful and filled with enough dark humor and shady characters to satisfy the most rabid noir fan, and convert those who aren’t already.

Worst book of the week Every week we Star editors get loads of books to review from publishers. Some are good, some are ... well, they make me want to wash my eyes after seeing them. Since these are books that are not likely to ever be picked up by our reviewers, we’ve decided to start a “Worst Book of the Week” contest. Every Friday, I’ll pull a terrible-sounding book from our supply and offer it up to the public. All you have to do is write me an e-mail telling me why you want that book. Maybe you love trashy romance novels. Maybe you want to learn how to catch a man in only 10 easy steps. Whatever the reason, let me know. I’ll pick the best answer and publish it in the following week’s paper. And you’ll get a free book. This week’s book is Captured by Desire by Kira Morgan. From the book cover: Florie Gilder is a beautiful and celebrated goldsmith — and a fugitive from the law. Thought to have stolen a precious heirloom that is the key to her true heritage, she seeks sanctuary in a church ... only to be discovered by Rane MacAllister. Chivalrous and charming, this broad-shouldered archer is bound by oath to prevent this feisty “thief” from escaping into the country­side. He does, but at a price. Florie chafes at being anyone’s prisoner, let alone that of a man sent by her accuser. But Rane, alone with Florie in this abandoned cloister, begins to conquer her guarded heart — and ignites a fiery passion. Now as their enemies gather to bring about their ruin, Florie and Rane will need courage, wits, and, most of all, love, to survive being ... Captured by Desire. Send an e-mail to dlong@annistonstar.com and let me know why you want this book.

New exhibit blends art, music “The artist’s world is limitless. It can be found anywhere, far from where he lives, or a few feet away. It is always on his doorstep.” — Paul Strand, American photographer and filmmaker It’s true; art can be anywhere, especially in Sally Wood Johnson’s visions and dreams. The photographer finds her artist’s world near her back doorstep in a most unexpected place, and the posHervey sibilities seem Folsom endless. Artists in Action A weathered wall behind her studio in Vestavia Hills in Birmingham is the backdrop for her exhibit of visual art now showing at Jacksonville State University’s Hammond Hall Gallery, and the wall’s changing looks through the seasons continue to set the stage for her creations. To Johnson, it seems very alive and is much like a personality in her work. I saw the exhibit and explored not only how images look, but how they sound. The display, “Projections & Reflections: a Collaboration of Music & Visual Art,” is a journey through the gallery that put me in a different world as I discovered the different patterns, light, textures and atmosphere of the concrete wall and the role it plays in her subject content. The music, by Dorothy Hindman, played in the corners of the gallery made the images more real — or surreal — as I browsed slowly and silently through the mixed media show. With the addition of the live models for the photos, (actually students wearing the models’ attire) it was a different kind of experience in viewing an exhibit. It was almost spiritual. Landscapes and seascapes have hung in this gallery in previous exhibits, but this show can be called a dreamscape. Six cellos, a French horn, kettledrums and a guitar played through the speakers. These layers of sound, and the slow melody by cellist Keith LaBenne (who was at the opening) set the mood for the intersection of the artist’s and viewers’ world. I felt that the series of photos of women combined with the music by

JSU Art Department/Special to The Star

Artist Sally Wood Johnson stands in front of her artwork, ‘Liberty,’ at the opening reception for the exhibit ‘Projections & Reflections: a Collaboratoin of Music & Visual Art’ at Hammond Hall gallery on the Jacksonville State University campus. Hindman are imaginations of how things ought to be; and the photos speak of dreams fulfilled. In “Harvest,” the model celebrates the yield of colorful vegetables arranged in a basket. In “Cello Sound,” the young musician seem oblivious to everything but the mellow sounds from her bow. “Liberty,” a 60-by-44 inch piece, attracted the most attention at the show’s opening, but not because of its size. The young girl, dressed in martial arts attire, looks as if she will step out of the photo at any moment and start an aikido workout. “She looks so real,” one viewer whispered to another as they lingered in front of the large photo. Over the girl’s shoulder in this picture, the shape of a shadow looks much like the profile of a woman dressed in a long dress with a bustle. “To me, this is symbolic of the coming out of women as brave and strong, ready for a challenge in this century, as supposed to women and their lifestyle in the 19th century,” Johnson told me. Her art form is digital photography. “This way, I can achieve the painterly quality that I look for,” she explained. The exhibit features a blending of

computer graphics, a video shown on a screen of the artist’s handmade paper, reflective surfaces, music and the photography. It was technical challenge to set up, Johnson said, but to this writer, the spirit she and Hindman share is simple and enchanting. Even with the combination of art and technology, I felt the artists achieved the softness of a watercolor in the feeling of their work. A gallery talk will be given Monday, Feb. 14, at noon by Johnson and Hindman. The two worked together at Birmingham Southern College where Hindman was associate professor of music and Johnson was a student. It is open to the public. “Projections & Reflections” premiered at Birmingham Southern College at the Durbin Gallery. After its presentation at JSU, it will travel to the Mobile Museum of Art, the Montgomery Museum of Fine Art, the Huntsville Museum of Art and the Birmingham Museum of Art. The exhibit will be up through Feb. 24.

Ronnie Dunn takes first steps in new solo career By Chris Talbott

THE WINDOW MAN, INC.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The wrapper is slowly coming off Ronnie Dunn’s solo career. Six months after the dissolution of the iconic country music duo Brooks & Dunn, Dunn has released his first single and is planning a summer release for his as-yet untitled new album. “This is the record I’ve waited all my life to do,” Dunn said on Tuesday. “We just wrapped it up.” The single, “Bleed Red,” was released to radio Monday and is the most added new song of the week, according to Country Aircheck and Billboard. Dunn produced the album himself and said he enjoyed charting his own path 20 years after he first teamed with partner Kix Brooks. Together, the Grammy-winning duo sold tens of millions of albums and was among the most awarded country music acts in history. “It is refreshing,” said Dunn, speaking after announcing The Academy of Country Music Awards

New Ricky Martin album a prequel to his memoir By Mesfin Fekadu Associated Press

Cold War Kids aim high on new LP By Chris Talbott Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The four guys in Cold War Kids came to a decision a few years back: It’s time to go all in or get out. The Long Beach, Calif., rockers had carved out a nice little niche over their first two albums using a do-it-yourself, punk-rock attitude to earn a fervent fan base and some buzz in the wider music community. But after their last album disappointed them in some ways, they realized it was time to stop treating the band like a hobby. “We don’t want to lose the vibe we have, but we need to blossom and branch out or we’re pretty much going to be putting out the same record, you know, like a lot of bands do,” bassist Matt Maust said. “There’s nothing wrong with that, but we don’t want to do that. I love a lot of bands for that, but we don’t want to be one of those bands right now.” Maust paused for a moment, hit by an epiphany. “It’s kind of weird,” he said. “I’ve never really said that out loud to anybody, but it feels good to say that. Check back with me in two years and see how I feel. All good art is contradictory, and I might deny this whole thing

ever happened.” In interviews during a stop at Jack White’s Third Man Records in Nashville and by phone, Maust and lead singer Nathan Willett painted the picture of a band that found itself at an existential crossroads as it prepared for its third album, Mine is Yours, out last week. Their previous album, 2008’s dark Loyalty to Loyalty, sold more copies than the band’s shiny 2006 breakthrough, Robbers and Cowards, but it wasn’t met with the same kind of fervor. What the band had at that point was fun. But it just didn’t feel important. Or permanent. In some ways, the process that produced the band’s latest album, Mine Is Yours, shows the Kids have grown up and realized they could have a future in music, not just a youthful dalliance that peters out over time. Maust and Willett have both edged into their 30s and Willett and guitarist Jonnie Russell have started families. Willett remembers shrugging his way through interviews for Loyalty. He’d grown up on a steady diet of bands like Fugazi and the “screw you” attitude of the Southern California, doit-yourself punk and hardcore scenes, and affected a similarly “so what?”

outlook when interviewers brought up silly things like expectations. It just wasn’t cool to want a ... career. Or was it? “I realized I had huge desires and ambitions for our band, and I kind of acted like I hadn’t before, so a lot of that is playing into this record,” Willett said. “I think that this album, Mine is Yours, I hope that it opens a lot of doors for us, just in terms of more artists we can work with, more opportunities to record. I think it just showed us we are capable of a lot more.” Cold War Kids brought in Jacquire King to help with the new album. A subtle producer whose credits stretch all the way from Tom Waits to Norah Jones to Kings of Leon, King is known as a patient collaborator who can show a band the path — without forcing them to take it. Instead of bringing finished songs to King, the band, which also includes drummer Matt Aveiro, put together interesting bits and pieces and moved into a house together in Nashville where they spent two months — rather than two weeks — working over the new music. What emerged from those sessions is a more complex work — both musically and thematically — about commitment and relationships and entering a new stage in life.

NEW YORK — Ricky Martin began writing a new CD, but then he had to stop. The singer says he got so comfortable revealing his feelings — and his sexuality — that he needed to explore that in another way. “When I started writing my music, in this cathartic process, I started writing my book ... and I had to stop doing music because what was coming out was really intense,” Martin said. His memoir Me hit The New York Times best-seller list in November. And while Martin says he’d love to release a book martin of photos next, he’s putting out the album that somewhat served as the prequel to Me. “Because of what I learned about myself with the book, I ended up writing the music for this album,” he said of Musica + Alma + Sexo, his twelfth effort, out this week. “For the first time in my life I was not forced to release an album.” The Puerto Rican singer said that kind of freedom allowed him to take risks and get emotional. “There were emotions (and) it was not easy,” he said. “You have to start opening doors within your mind, opening doors and closing them (like), ‘I don’t want to go into that room ... Should I? No, but I have to,’” he recalled. “It was very liberating (and) very healing.” Martin spent two years making the mostly Spanish CD, co-writing each track and reuniting with Desmond Child, the producer behind his hits “Livin’ la Vida Loca” and “She Bangs.” Martin became a father to twin boys through a surrogate mother two years ago. And he’s looking to expand his family: “Of course I want daddy’s girl. In a couple of years, not now.” He also said though his boys are young, they’re catching the music bug. He’s even open to them being teen singers like he did when he debuted in the boy band Menudo. “I’m very lucky because my parents supported this... If they didn’t support me, today I would be so frustrated,” he said. “I want (my kids) to be happy. I would never force them into anything ... What I’m trying to say here is that for many years I did things for others to be happy.” While Martin, now 39, was not open about his sexuality for many years, he was a musical success: He sold more than 20 million albums in the United States, won a Grammy and toured the world. But now, he says, he’s reached a new high. “I feel balanced,” he said, pausing, then smiling: “I feel like I can touch the sky.”

Each of the 19 tracks on The Stanley’s take on “Cut The Wire”

could have come from a mid-’80s Kiss album, ably assisted by former Bowie guitarist Stevie Salas. But some of the best moments come from recently resurgent singer Glenn Hughes, who’s had his ups and downs through the years in bands like Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and currently, Black Country Communion. His soulful yowling blends well with the backing band’s Soviet sensibilities on “Why Don’t You?” “Tonight,” and “Private Own.” Other notable contributors include singer Jeff Scott Soto (Yngwie Malmsteen), John Lawton (Uriah Heep), Eric Martin (Mr. Big) and Dan McCafferty (Nazareth). CHECK THIS TRACK OUT: Udo Dirkschneider, Accept’s scary original singer, scores big on “Nature’s Child,” perhaps the hardest rocking tune on the disc.

A large expedition headed by Maneuvering by scuba through

underwater crevices as tight as those of 127 Hours, Frank’s mantra is that “panic is the enemy.” A storm is known to be approaching, but deep underground, they’re somehow still caught unprepared when the storm develops into a cyclone, thus promising a life-threatening deluge in the caves. Taking charge is Frank, a cold fish, indeed. “There’s no God down here,” he snaps at one moment with face hardened. Elsewhere, there’s: “There are no rescue missions down here, only body recoveries!” Everyone questions his harsh leadership (particularly his more kindhearted son), but Frank is gradually borne out. He may be gruff, but he knows caves and the limitations of what can be accomplished.

Those locked underground follow him, looking for the exit to the sea. The survivors are winnowed until — true to the tradition of so many such films — women and nonwhites are gradually dispatched. Some exit like Willy Wonka characters, neatly ruined by their foolhardiness. A claustrophobia takes hold as they make their way from one chamber to the next, squeaking through the rock and water. Many of the set pieces in the cave system and the underwater shots are beautiful, but the lack of variation begins to feel like the recent film Buried, which takes place entirely in a coffin. Sanctum is clearly in line with Cameron’s adoration of subsurface exploration, a love affair at least since The Abyss. Sanctum is meant to prove that the 3-D tech-

nology developed for his Avatar can be inexpensively adapted to simple genre films. As a showcase for 3-D, Sanctum is a failure. The depth of the images adds little to the experience, and for most of the middle of the film, is entirely forgotten. The darkness of the caves, at least, suits the darkened image of 3-D. Written by John Garvin and caver Andrew Wight, Sanctum claims to be “inspired by a true story.” The basis, though, is a cave trip by Wight where a perilous storm nevertheless ended in all 15 surviving. The film at least avoids that romantic lie of so many survivalist movies, that you can make it against all odds. Sanctum allows that heroism has its limits and that death must be accepted. Jack Kevorkian would love it.

Walhberg, Kunis, Nolan snubbed by Oscars Now I know I told y’all we’d be getting into the Oscars this week, but I think we’ll make this a two-part series. This week I’m going to focus on some highlights of the nominations and some people I felt were snubbed. First off, Mark Wahlberg not getting nominated for best actor for Bobby his role in The Fighter Bozeman is a bit of a shame, but I Pop haven’t seen Biutiful and Cultured I really don’t know all that much about Javier Bardem’s performance in it. Mila Kunis also was a snub for her role in Black Swan, but she was in the really tight best supporting actress category.

Now the biggest snub in my book is Christopher Nolan being left out of the best director category. Inception has gotten a lot of love from both the masses at the box office and the critics, and it snagged eight Oscar nominations including best picture. What blows my mind most about this snub is that Inception is so much the brain child of Christopher Nolan that to not give him a best director nod just doesn’t make sense. Another film you may have missed (but that’s OK, it’s on Netflix’s instant queue already) that is up for best documentary is famous mysteryman/street artist Banksy’s documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop. It’s about a man, Thierry Guetta, who tried to do a documentary on Banksy and gets wrapped up in the world of street art. It’s deeper than that of course, but you’ll just

have to watch it and find out. Now on to another topic, and I hate to venture into the territory of our tech columnist, Chris Pittman of iSpy fame, but I just had to tell y’all about this game/app I’ve been playing all week. It’s called Game Dev Story (dev is short for development) and I just couldn’t put it down. It’s available for Android and iPhone or iPod and costs less than $5. I had never imagined there being a tycoon-esqe sim game about running a video game company, but after playing it I can’t believe it hasn’t been done before. Really, you just set up your staff, pick your direction and everything pretty much takes care of itself. However the addictiveness comes from that “Civilization” mindset of “just one more turn and I’ll turn it off.” And of course here creating one more

game turns into three more, which turns into you being up at 3 in the morning. That brings me to my next point about video games. We’ve gotten to the point technologically where just about anyone with the right know-how can produce an indie game and release it on the Web, or with the right budget on the App Store or Android Marketplace. This opens up windows for games like Angry Birds or Space Miner: Space Ore Burst that are low price, inventive, entertaining and way out of the norm for something that you would see on a normal console. So do yourself a favor and check out some games on your smart phone, a lot of them are real gems at ridiculous prices.

‘DC Universe Online’ not superpowered enough By Derrik J. Lang

warning and the game crashing my system when I battled inside the Batcave. To make matters worse, the interface and chat system are wonky. Teaming up and communicating with other players is tough, especially in the PS3 edition. It’s entirely possible to plow through most missions without working alongside other heroes and villains, an unfortunate venture given that this is a massively multiplayer game with hundreds of other players working to achieve the same goals as your superpowered avatar. Such significant downfalls mean that “DC Universe Online” isn’t likely to be the next great massively multiplayer game, though die-hard DC Comics fans who have longed to fight alongside the likes of The Flash and Green Lantern and against villains such as Bizarro and Mr. Freeze will probably be delighted with this interactive excursion. Two stars out of four.

Local company hopes new console will create jobs Local company Envisions’ upcoming EVO GameBox entertainment console has bigger implications than simply being the first Android-based video game system. The success of the machine could mean more jobs for Anniston. That’s the lofty goal of CEO Derrick Samuels. “We’ll create jobs for this city if we hit our presell goal,” he said. That target is 5,000 units at a special preorder price of $249.99. Interested gamers need only to plunk down $15 Chris for now. The overall price Pittman will increase once the machine has launched. iSpy The potential for more jobs in Anniston is always good news. It’s hard to predict whether the company will hit that target, though. Based on early information, it certainly has a shot. The GameBox will be the first console that features a design based on user feedback. Three models will be constructed

and interested parties can vote for their favorite on the GameBox website. A new poll will be added afterward to determine the final color of the machine. But what’s inside is what really matters, and the GameBox does not disappoint. As stated before, the machine is the first gaming console to run on Android. The use of Google’s operating system will give the GameBox access to the Android Marketplace. The store already has thousands of applications to download, giving the console an incredible variety of abilities on day one. Yes, that means Netflix and Angry Birds are on the GameBox. Envisions will launch a marketplace of its own when the console becomes available. It will feature dedicated GameBox applications that will take advantage of the systems specifications. One of those apps is Bundle-A-Bill, an app that focuses on making payments easier. The service, free to GameBox owners, will also pay for one small bill of your choosing. That’s free water, folks. These features make the GameBox more of an all-in-one platform. You can

do much more than a standard gaming device. Motion controls are popular on all the consoles now and this machine is no exception. Gesturing controls will be included and are expected to be a big part of the platform. “We want users to touch and feel the Internet,” Samuels said. Envisions will use its GameBox storage software to save game data, movies, music and more. The company has invested more than $50,000 in the project that launched last year. This will save data in the cloud so it will be possible to load the information from anywhere on different devices. The EVO Smart Console was the company’s first foray into the market. Samuels estimates that the project took nearly a million dollars to complete. The amount of information and technique learned, however, was priceless. A lone model rests on the table in the conference room. It’s the only machine that remains. “The demand for the EVO was high after we discontinued the product,” he

said. “We were getting phone calls from all over from people wanting one.” Delays hampered the EVO project and many competitors were able to copy planned features. Envisions has different plans for round two. The company is keeping its secrets close to the chest this time around. GameBox will be at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles this June. A huge announcement will take place concerning special features of the machine. Envisions also hopes to pick up some new partners and excite the gaming community with its product. The EVO GameBox is set for release before the end of the year. Barring any of those unforeseen delays, of course. The smile on Samuels’ face speaks volumes for what is in store for his company in the future. “I want this console to bring people together,” he said. “I want to make people smile.”

— Fireworks Over Toccoa

Thursday night, Heroes will host a bit of live comedy as Costaki Economopoulos takes the stage for two back-to-back performances. In addition to his stand-up comedy tour across the country, Economopoulos is best known for his weekly segment “The Economonologue” on the syndicated Bob & Tom Radio Show. He’s also written jokes that have appeared on The Tonight Show, The Late Late Show and the Best Damn Sports Show Period. Economopoulos said he draws the inspiration for his comedy from life, be it politics, football or home life as a dad. And while he says his live show has a bit more edge to it than what people hear on the radio, he says his weekly segment on the morning Bob & Tom Radio Show has helped his career take shape. “When I go to those markets, my kind of people are coming out to see me. When they like you before you start, that fills the valley and raises the peaks — there’s room for more creativity.” Economopoulos’s career as a standup comic took off shortly after he finished his master’s degree in 1993 at the University of Georgia. “[Stand-up comedy] is the only thing I’ve really loved,” he said. “You watch a good sitcom, and you laugh three or four times in half an hour, but if you watch a great live comic, you’re laughing every three or four seconds. It’s a very pure, direct form of comedy. It’s just a guy standing there talking. I was always fond of that.” Economopoulos’s goal is simple: he wants to produce thought-provoking comedy. “A good laugh is the primary goal, but ideally you think a little bit about your world when you’re watching a good comedy show — but that’s gravy. I never wanted to be preachy, but I wanted some depth, so I’ll talk a bit about being a dad and about being a good father. Life is a bunch of crap sometimes. It’s nice to enjoy it.” Economopoulos said he urges those who haven’t seen a live comedy show to come out simply for the experience.

Special to The Star

Comedian Costaki Economopoulos will perform two shows at Heroes in Jacksonville on Feb. 10. “A live stand-up show is more fun than people think it could be. A lot of people say, ‘Oh I see it on TV,’ but there’s a difference between watching a rollercoaster and being on one.” The show is hosted by Rock 105.9 and Rock 98.3, said station manager Chris Wright. Wright said the station hopes to put on a comedy show about once a month. “This is our first [show], and we’ll see how it goes,” he said. “We’ve already got another show ready to book if things work out the way we hope.” Wright said he hopes to continue to bring in comedians listeners are familiar with. “I’m hoping that the show adds a little more variety to the area,” he said. “If a lot of people come out and have a good time, it can lay the groundwork for a regular comedy series.” Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at Heroes or by calling 256-405-4366. Shows are at 7 p.m. and 9:30 pm.

Jason Lee stars as Dwight Hendricks, a Memphis police detective in ‘Memphis Beat,’ which will return for a second season later this year on TNT. police officer who became the union representative. It only ran for about three episodes then disappeared even though it appeared several additional weeks in the TV listings. It looked interesting. What happened to it? A: Not enough people watched it, and CBS ended telecasts of the Canadian-made drama. It did continue production for Canadian TV, although I do not know of a U.S. network picking it up. Q: Last season I enjoyed two new shows: Memphis Beat and Everglades. Will they be back this season? A: By “Everglades” I think you mean “The Glades,” an A&E series set in the Everglades. Both shows have been picked up for a second season. Look for them later in 2011. Q: On Jan. 16, I caught the very end of a Skate for the Heart ice-skating show from Youngstown, Ohio, on NBC. There were approximately 10

young men dressed in suits who were standing on the stage and singing while the skaters were on the ice. Can you tell me the name of that singing group? They were amazing. A: That was the a cappella group Straight No Chaser — and, having seen them perform in Cleveland not long ago, I agree they are amazing. Originally hailing from Indiana University, they became a phenomenon after some of their performances were on YouTube. You can learn more about them and their recordings at http://www. sncmusic.com.
