The more I got into The Vex Collection’s forthcoming debut, the more I started thinking about music made with or focused around instruments with double reeds. So while I started doing a little of my own digital crate digging, it made more sense to get outside reinforcements. Considering how unique the approach of the ensemble is (and the quality of their album!), I asked The Vex Collection if they’d want to do a mix of music based around double reeds. Suffice to say, they delivered.
