Guitarist and singer/songwriter Artie Traum has been called an “intensely talented observer of life” who creates a “hip fusion of folk and jazz.” thief of time delivers 11 new songs that bring Artie Traum’s award-winning guitar playing and song writing talents to a new level. Traum is supported by Tony Levin (bass), Warren Bernhardt (piano) and Gary Burke (drums). John Sebastian plays baritone guitars on “When You Insult A Man”, while Joe Flood, Wendy Waldman, Amy Helm, Teresa Williams and Jim Photoglo provide vocal and instrumental support. Multi-platinum artist Donna Lewis adds her vocals to the Brazilian groove in “Back In The Sugarcane”. Traum has been described as “one of the great players of any era” and Jazz Times called his style “elegant folk-jazz.” When producer Wendy Waldman heard Traum’s 2002 release, South of Lafayette she said, “I want to produce your next vocal album.” Traum and Waldman wrote several songs together for this project.
