  • The Cambrian Explosion [MRI, 2017] ***
  • The Ordovician Era! [Don Giovanni, 2019] **

Consumer Guide Reviews:

The Cambrian Explosion [MRI, 2017]
Polyphony spins dizzily awry as fearless leader plus ad hoc nonet reel off protest songs, pop standards, banjo improvs, nursery rhymes, etc. ("This Is My Country," "Blue Moon," "Cumberland Mountain Deer Chase") ***

The Ordovician Era! [Don Giovanni, 2019]
"Featuring Shelley Hirsch," a free-improvising singer who puts the stamp of the semi-official avant-garde on some of Stampfel's woolliest notions. ("Here We Come," "Marshmallows," "Queen of Romania") **
