The Violin still predominates in this third album by Vint & Mathilda, but it also features well-known guest artists like Phil Collin's flute player Danny Wilding. The album is steeped in Vint's philisophical, and often funny lyrics.

This third album, American Gypsy, comes closest to Vintâs concept of gypsy rock. Mathildaâs haunting classically inspired improvisations stand out as the primary instrumentation. However, backed by well-known musicians such as bass player Lanis Loyd (who toured with Gatemouth Brown) and Phil Collinsâ former flute player Danny Wilding, this album is rich in musical texture.

As both executive producer and engineer, Vint was able to tailor the sound exactly to his vision, while staying true to the sound that he and Mathilda had been developing over the years of touring and playing together. Recorded at High Desert Studios in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the album is a mix of eastern influenced arrangements such as âEndless Blue,â a cover of Dylanâs âOne More Cup of Coffeeâ with gypsy violins and the western influenced âHalfway to Heavenâ to the unclassifiable instrumental âBuffalo Song,â composed and performed by Mathilda on violins and viola.

As with Vint & Mathildaâs first two albums, âWantedâ and âGhost in My Dreams,â the lyrics range from the sublime âThin Air,â to the social satire of âHouse of Cardsâ and the light hearted humor of âSmokey Barroom Bluesâ and âHalfway to Heaven.â

According to Vint, âWhile I had no intention of having any western influenced songs on this album, it seems that I canât fully escape my roots. Many of these songs were written on the rooftop of my house in Santa Fe, looking out at the back of the Sandia Mountains or the Sangre de Cristos during one sunset or another. So even songs I originally wrote while living in Spain such as âEndless Blue,â have a touch of the west in them. We have often been plagued by our unique blend of western, folk and classical influences. Many commercial radio stations over the years have said that weâre too western for commercial rock stations and yet weâre not country enough for country/western stations. Oh well.â
